This year I was again honored to be asked to coordinate a special showcase of my top picks in cat products at the annual BlogPaws pet blogging and social media conference, one of my favorite events.


The conference draws pet bloggers, social media experts, and pet product brands from across the country, bringing everyone together for three days of networking, education, and lots of fun. The Hauspanther Cat Style Lounge is a special area where feline-focused attendees can hangout and interact with some of the coolest new cat gear.


I rounded up several of my favorite cat product companies and created a 1,000 sq ft showcase inside the exhibit hall. The Top Cat Sponsor for this year’s Cat Style Lounge was ökocat natural cat litters. The display featured a giant wall of ökocat boxes along with some adorable cat cutouts demoing each variety of litter. (Stay tuned for more info on ökocat!)


Our Catwalk sponsors included Pioneer PetCatitPetmate featuring the new Jackson Galaxy Cat Product CollectionShopMeoow.comSleepypodKatioVesperPet Tree Houses, and CatastrophiCreations. All of their displays were spectacular and filled with fabulous products.


Other sponsors included 26 Bars & a Band, AVP PetAutomated Pet Care ProductsCattinoCatty StacksFeline Yogi, Groom Genie, K-Kat Innovative Pet Products, Kascade DesignsPawNosh, Peach Industries, Pet Fusion, PurrfecTrends, The Cat BallTriple T Studios, and Kitty Kush Catnip.

And of course we had another cat craft party in the lounge during cocktail hour on the first night of the conference. The craft party was a huge hit last year when we made DIY cat ears, so I had to do it again. This time everyone made their own cat eyeglasses and everyone had a blast!


Thank you to the amazing team at BlogPaws for putting on this wonderful conference. Wait until you see what we have planned for next year, because the conference will be in my hometown — PHOENIX!
