Kiril, thank you for including me in your blog post and thoughts. I am so happy to be one of your creative friends and biggest supporters and fans for nearly 6 years, now. Absolutely LOVED the innocent letters you saw in your travels and the special meanings you've ascribed to them. We have discussed this many times in the past, but I feel strongly that you could turn your existing blog posts into a book. If there is any ONE person who should do this and deserves to do this and will find success doing this, it is YOU.

WHOA! I'm truly touched with your post, Kiril (and kitties). Thank you so much for honoring me in this way! I hope to resuscitate my own blog some day and really showcase my own talents as nicely as you feature yours. I think all of us writers will continue being inspired and consistently encouraged and motivated through you. You write so elegantly and enthusiastically about so many rich topics, making the writing process seem effortless. May God continue to bless you (and the kitties) and may the Opinionated Pussycat continue sharing its opinions to garner another 4,900 comments!!!

Kiril, you are a true original. You have consistently maintained your writing and deep, rich sense of creativity. There is always so much coming out of your heart and soul. I understand many things about which you've written and am so happy for you and the cats that things are finally looking sunnier. I am thrilled you are able to get to this special cat conference to just enjoy yourself.

Elvira: This blog post is creative, well-written, and chock full of interesting information. Terrific job capturing your observations from the websites that you visited. Kiril: The fact that you were able to catch the artists who featured pets in their work is pretty amazing. Also, I am impressed and happy for you that you thought ahead and planned to take business cards with you to this event. Great marketing for you!

Julie: I so loved the specific advice you have provided in this blog post. Perhaps the single-most important takeaway for me is your suggestion to create a list of reasons why I love to write and to post it prominently in a place that will provide constant inspiration (refers to point #3 about igniting the embers). No pun intended, but I love the spirit in which you give advice. You go in the direction of the sweet, the simple, the positive, and the feel-good, instead of reverting to dirty tricks of snarkiness and rudeness, which I can not stand. Thank you for being so kind and gentle in your approach to providing writing advice and for sticking with genuine and clear reasons why I must continue to write, irrespective of how I feel or what is going on in my life. Great job.
Kiril: I admire the courage and strength you've shown in discovering your writing roots. You have discussed self-doubt and wonder whether others have enjoyed your writing. I have found a similar path as you, declaring myself an actual writer for the first time at the age of 40, which is one of the reasons why you and your particular brand of creativity resonate with me. Well done.
