Have you ever wondered what it would be like if the Hauspanther website came to life? Well, that’s what happened at the 2014 BlogPaws pet blogging and social media conference last week in Lake Las Vegas! I had the pleasure of coordinating the Cat Style Lounge, a 1200 sq. ft. showcase of the top cat products around. Forty companies contributed over 150 products for an extreme display of cat style, and conference attendees couldn’t get enough.
This display was like no other, I have to say. It was a chance for everyone to see the products first-hand and so many people commented on how lucky cats are these days. And they’re right, the cat product industry has certainly stepped up the game since I started writing about designer cat products in 2007!
Attendees received all sorts of goodies, including an info packet with materials about all the products on display, free bags of a new non-clay clumping cat litter from SmartCat (which I LOVE BTW! Definitely give this one a try! Check it out here) and Cloud9 Cat Treats, which come in the cutest little containers with cat ears!
A big thank you to all the fabulous companies that sponsored the Cat Style Lounge with a special shout out to Only Natural Pet, our Top Cat Sponsor. Only Natural Pet carries an impressive line of natural, healthy products for cats and dogs including food, treats, supplements, litter, gear and toys. Check them out at OnlyNaturalPet.com.
I’d also like to thank all of our Catwalk Sponsors: PetFusion, Modko, Peach Industries, ContempoCat, Mountain Cat Trees, Bergan, Cats Rule, Catit, SwiPets, Pioneer Pet/SmartCat, and PetSafe (Mittens from textsfrommittens.com is a big fan of their fancy fountains!)

Here’s a slideshow of all these amazing cat products:
We had some crafty fun in the lounge, too! One night we hosted a cat ear making party and everyone got to make a pair of custom cat ears, just like the ears worn by our friends in the Amazing Acro-cats. It was a frenzy of hot glue, felt, and bling but everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. Even our bartenders sported cat ears!
Thank you so much to the incredible BlogPaws team for asking me to host the Cat Style Lounge and to all the attendees who stopped by to check out the display. I’m looking forward to doing it again next year!
