Candid Carrie's Cat Corner, Introduction

Hello! First, I would like to thank the canines from this blog for that lukewarm reception. Second, hugs and kisses to Pauline for letting me participate as a guest blogger.

Here is a little bit of my background. I am a real human and have my very own blog, Candid Carrie. I have six human children, one out on his own, one at college, and four at home. I also have seven felines, all rescued.

I am not, however, all about cats! In the past, I bred and showed Shih Tzus and Yorkshire Terrorists (yes, I meant to spell it that way) for about ten years. Gave up the small dogs for big dogs and had four Great Danes, all of them adopted through a variety of reputable rescue organization. I've also helped a friend by fostering retired Greyhounds until they found their forever home.

At this point in my life, cats are the better route for our family. So here I am, saving the world one cat at a time.

My intentions are to pop in periodically, blog about a product I've used, and chat about the experience.

If anyone would like to ask cat related questions, you can reach me at and I will feature your question (along with a link to your blog) in an upcoming post.

P.S. I know those are the footprints of a dog featured below, but it is just better to let sleeping dogs lie, you know what I mean?

ruff ruff...and meow

Finnigan says: Greetings peasants and pooches. It is I, Finnigan the Great Master and Commander of the Entire Universe and Beyond.
It has been many moons since my last post (that sounded pretty sweet, didn't it?) and I have a majorly barkin' announcement to make.
Dog Mom is a traitor.
Yes, I said it. If I didn't rely on her for food, shelter, and belly rubs, I'd turn her in to the puppy council right now for treason.
Her crime? She has broken our cardinal rule barring felines from Ruff Ruff Ruff! Can you believe it?
Apparently, we will now be having a guest blogger coming in with some Candid Carrie's Cat Corner, or some ruff like that.
As a dog, I am totally against it. But Dog Mom says she won't transcribe for me anymore unless I agree to it. So here I am, announcing to the world (because I have no thumbs)that cats are now welcome on Ruff Ruff.
There goes the blogosphere...

Kisses and a T-shirt

Finnigan says: Greetings doglings and loyal human subjects. It has been a few weeks since our last post, and to celebrate our triumphant return and our kickin' redesign, we are hosting a new contest for a free T-shirt from the pawesomely exclusive Boodie Kiss online boutique.
Cat says: Hi puppies and doggies! Aren't you excited? Just bark us a comment to the post, or blog about it at your own blog and leave us the link here so we know to give you an entry.
Oh-and how is this for extra credit? Do both and get two entries! Hurry up, dogs! Get your people to enter the contest by May 24 at midnight.
Good luck and ruff ruff!
