Mom Will Be Meowing at BarkWorld and MeowWorld thanks to Rachael Ray Nutrish! (Sponsored)

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Rachael Ray Nutrish.   As always, thank you for reading and supporting our sponsors.

Hi every furry! Well, tomorrow is going to be a sad day for me. A sad day indeed! Tomorrow Mom is leaving me (AGAIN) for "Hotlanta", where she will be attending Barkworld and Meowworld thanks to MY being an Ambassacat for Nutrish for Cats! (Ok, Dakota is an Ambassadog, so I guess since he hooked up with Nutrish first, I should give credit where credit is due! Nutrish is one of the sponsors of Barkworld/Meowworld and thanks to their generosity, Mom is able to attend!


Mom is pawticularly excited because the Cat Writers' Association annual conference will be held in conjunction with Meowworld (they are sponsoring Meowworld), and it will be Mom's first time attending a CWA conference!


Last year when Mom went to Barkworld her focus was on all things dog, THIS year it will be different! Mom is planning on attending a number of cat-related events, and is going to be focusing more on CATS there. (Well, that's a no-brainer, she SHOULD be!)

The event will be bitter sweet due to the sudden and unexpected passing of Lorie Huston (former CWA President), and Mom is going to be one of many cat bloggers attending a special remembrance event Saturday morning who will be wiping tears from their eyes.

Mom is also sad because she had been teasing Lorie about the costume she is going to wear Thursday evening at the CWA  Bag Stuffing and Welcome Reception (being held from 5pm to 7pm). Lorie had told Mom she couldn't wait to see her costume, Mom is sad that won't happen. Mom is going to try and keep a smile on her face, but her heart will be aching. (For those attending the bag stuffing Thursday night, you won't be able to miss Mom, trust me....MOL)

Mom says it will be nice to re-connect with so many blogging pals (from both  cat AND dog blogs), and, as always, it will be great to meet new furiends too!

If you want to keep tabs on Mom at the conference, you can follow her on twitter @catchatcaren where she will be doing the majority of her tweeting.  Mom will also be re-tweeting some tweets that Nutrish will be posting! You can follow them too @Nutrish. Unlike other DEDICATED bloggers, Mom is NOT bringing her laptop with her to Atlanta, but she said she WILL have an update within a few weeks of her return. 

What will I be doing while Mom is away?

What do you think?

I will be eating THIS:



AND LOTS OF THIS!!!
I have Dad wrapped around my paw for extra servings you know!


As much as I LOVE my Nutrish for Cats, I will wish Mom wouldn't go.
 Do you think there is room for me in her bag?

  14. Your Mom is SO lucky, Cody! Ask your Mom to tell the Nutrish peeps that Truffles the tortie ADORES their chicken kibble!

  15. We sure will miss seeing her there!

  16. Trust me, cody, you don’t want to go. I hope your Mom has fun and rumor has it Plush CK will be with another of the Nutrish ambassiDOGs. Make sure you tell your Mom to give her a kiss for you. As far as Nutrish cat food, I really like the kibble and only lick the gravy of the wet food and TW says it’s too expensive to throw most of it away. When we bought some cos we had the coupon, even the cashier rang it up and said “Is this right? $1.09 for this little thing of food."

  17. I hope your mum has a lovely time Cody. Do you think we could manage a house trashing while she is gone without your dad noticing?

  22. The mom is leaving us too to go to Hotlanta! She says she can't wait to see your mom again. We're trying to find a way to fit in her suitcase and go too...but it's hard to find room for the 3 of us.
