I just returned from the terrific Cat Writers’ Conference held in White Plains, New York. The experience was pawsitively a five paws affair! For three days I was surrounded by writers and journalists who are the voices for cats. I reconnected with many friends made at last year’s conference. I also met several new people including Ingrid King, author of Buckley’s Story, Carol Frischmann, author of Pets and the Planet and Rosie Sorenson, author of They Had Me at Meow. I look forward to writing more about these talented authors and their messages in future blogs.

This year’s conference was held in conjunction with the Westchester Cat Show. Saturday afternoon I signed Tatianna books along with other cat authors at the CWA book booth. I also observed some of the judging and walked around and talked to competitors and admired all their awesome cats. I adored all of them, but particularly enjoyed seeing the Maine Coon and Norwegian Forest cats.

My suitcase is filled with all kinds of kitty goodies from conference sponsors and a few items I just could not resist from the cat show! Last count I have eight new catnip mouse toys. I hope that will be plenty to get back in the good graces of Lexie Lee—who has been boarded during my trip!

Bountiful Blessings!
