Every year in December I like to participate in some fun blogging events for the holidays, after all Christmas is the time for giving. This year, I have several fun giveaways, and I also joined the Pet Blogger Gift Exchange. There are no actual gifts being exchanged, it is just bloggers being paired with another blogger to get to know someone new. My friend Honey’s mom over at Something Wagging This Way Comes is the brains behind the idea! If you don’t know Honey and her mom’s blog, you should take a read as it is always funny and you should know by now, I enjoy funny!
I got my paired blogger in my email the other day and guess what? Yep, I’m paired up with a whole herd of cats at Random Felines! Oh my. What should I do? I know a lot about cats having lived with them my whole life, but this project may be too much for a dog!
The site I’m paired with this year is Random Felines. I am totally new to this blog, which is really what the heart of the Pet Blogger’s Gift Exchange pairing is about. Random Felines is a blog all about cats, six cats live at this house, and they also foster cats and kittens. I didn’t find any trace of a dog in the blog, which is probably a good thing. I have trouble living with only two cats!
Lucky for me, cat bro Bert offered to help me with this cat task. Personally, I think it is a last ditch effort on his part to make it on Santa Paw’s Nice List. By the way, feel free to also let Bert know that he is looking chubby. We just can’t keep him slim, it is terrible! Anyway, he was quite interested in this blog and wanted to find out all about the cats.
I caught Bert a bit later in his favorite chair with the website pulled up on the Ipad. He thought all the kitten photos were especially cute. Bert loves that there is only one girl in the family. He lives with a bunch of girls and says it is really difficult, so he is jealous of Junior, Mozart, Tim, Tom, and Spud! Because Bert and Sophie were both adopted as adult cats from the Humane Society, he feels a special bond with this blog and their rescue/foster work. The human from Random Felines started working with animal rescue as a volunteer in 2000, and in 2006 started working with fostering cats and kittens. We don’t know a whole lot about animal rescue for cats or dogs, but if you want to learn about it, specifically for cats, this blog is quite informative. The kitten photos bring smiles, many of the stories do as well, but there are some sad tales as is to be expected with rescue work. There is a tab for Bourbon’s story which is really a good read! If you are at all interested in cats, I would suggest you stop by and give these kitties a meow. You can also follow Random Felines on Facebook and Twitter.
Thanks again to Honey and her mom for arranging this Pet Blogger Gift Exchange so we can branch out and find some new and interesting blogs!
