Meet Athena the dilute tortoiseshell cat! Isn't she beautiful? I knew this was the picture I had to share the minute I saw it in the community Athena is owned by community member Susan Willett. I thought that sweet little face as a great way to start off Wordless Wednesday and remind everyone that BlogPaws is celebrating Giving Month!

We know that keeping your pets healthy is something that our community is very passionate about and we felt it deserved a month where we could all share information and learn from each other about how to keep our pets healthy and happy to a very noble old age.

Guest post by Felissa Elfenbein, BlogPaws Blogger Outreach and Communications Manager Earlier this week I posted a three part question in the community for the Monday Musing Question of the week I asked if you put a lot of thought into the images that you share. I received a lot of feedback that while you want to be creating shareable images you just don't think yours are as good as what other people are able to create. Here is the same picture of Indiana looking like she is sticking her tongue out at this bone. I thought it was kind... Continue reading

You might have noticed a bit of a theme going on here at BlogPaws lately. This month is Adopt a Cat Month.

We still love dogs, and ferrets, hamsters, and Capybaras too. In fact each month for the next year we will be promoting something that our Bloggers are passionate about or effects your pets. If you have a cat we would love to see the pictures you took... Continue reading
