Pet Blogger Showcase 07/01/2017

Twice a month, Bear and I co-host a Pet Blogger Linky Party along with co-hosts PetFavesHeart Like A Dog, and Felines Opines. If you missed the last Pet Blogger Showcase, you can view it here: Pet Blogger Showcase 06/17/2017. To view past weeks as a co-host ... Pet Blogger Showcase 10/01/2016Pet Blogger Showcase 10/15/2016Pet Blogger Showcase 11/05/2016Pet Blogger Showcase 11/19/2016Pet Blogger Showcase 12/03/2016Pet Blogger Showcase 01/07/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 01/21/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 02/04/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 02/18/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 03/04/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 03/18/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 04/01/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 04/15/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 05/06/2017Pet Blogger Showcase 06/03/2017.

Why do Bear and I like blog hops and linky parties? 
  • We've met so many incredible new friends we'd never find otherwise. For the majority of blogs Bear and I visit on a regular basis, probably eighty percent of them or more we found through participating in blog hops.
  • With the variety of blogs that participate, there's so much to learn for those of us who can never know enough. Not to mention that there are a lot of touching, fascinating, or otherwise unique stories to be told outside of one's "niche."
  • They are great ways to build relationships within the blogging community. When Momma recently went through a tough time emotionally, our blogging friends were our best supports. So building relationships with other bloggers isn't just about increasing readership, but also connecting in meaningful ways that can often be lost behind a computer screen.
If you join our Party, please link to a specific post from your blog instead of to your blog's homepage. Since each co-host chooses three posts from the last Party to feature each week - you increase your chances of being chosen by giving us a specific post and not the more general homepage.

In keeping with the tradition of this particular linky party, my favorite link ups from the last Showcase follow. A note on the last Showcase ... Bear and I were ecstatic at how many link ups we had last time!!! Especially with the great showing of felines! THANK YOU to everyone/everycat/everydog who linked up ... the Showcase is made better by each and every friend who joins: you ARE the Showcase!

*** Happy Father’s Day! - 15andmeowing ***

What's sweeter than a man and the cats who love him? Ellen also shares the qualities in her husband that she appreciates most - including how happy he is to share his dinner with the kitties.
Next to cats, one of Momma's favorite subjects is astronomy. So imagine Momma's joy at reading the interview introducing Puri Gagarin, the Cosmocat (from Instagram).

*** Sister Saturday with the Dolly Report - Brian's Home Blog ***

No feline likes change ... but occasionally, it's necessary. Rumors abound as to the nature and reason for the changes in store for the nine cats at Brian's Home. And don't forget their tagline, "Adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often!"

Wait! Wait! One more!!! We're counting this as a chosen ORGANIZATION ... though the blog itself is amazing and WELL WORTH your visit. For as long as I cohost, I will praise and raise awareness for PAWS, an incredible rescue in Norwalk, Connecticut that I've come to admire and wholeheartedly support. We LOVE Animal Shelter Volunteer Life because of their upbeat attitude and because they do a phenomenal job of sharing this particular rescue - and the cats available for adoption there. PAWS offers a lot of great programs including a "pension plan" for senior pets up for adoption. We encourage our readers to visit these two blogs, check out the amazing animals up for adoption on PAWS' website, and support rescue efforts at PAWS and locally.

About the Pet Blogger Showcase

Twice a month, On the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month, you have the chance to link up one of your blog posts to the linky party link-up. Then visit 3 other blogs that joined the party and leave a meaningful comment. Feel free to share with your followers on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, etc. Then each week the hosts will feature their favorite 3 posts from the previous Linky Party on the new party post.

Pet Blogger Showcase Rules

1.    Share a pet specific post, past or present, from your blog in the linky below. Family friendly posts only. (We love reading about other topics and niches, but posts that are not pet related will be deleted this includes any posts that don’t mention pets even if they are on a pet blog or if the post could pertain to pets.)
2.    Spread the Love! Leave a quality comment(more than just a few words) on at least 3 other posts from the linky party. Tell them why you love their post, encourage them, share on social media.
3.    Check back for the next linky party to see if you are featured on one of the hosts’ blogs.

*Note: By adding your post to the linky party you are giving the hosts permission to use an image from your post if your post will be a featured post on their blog to help encourage people to click through to your post. The image may be used individually or as a collage.

ALSO ... please link to a specific post from your blog instead of to your blog's homepage. Since each co-host chooses three posts from the last Party to feature each week - you increase your chances of being chosen by giving us a specific post and not the more general homepage.

That’s it! No need to RSVP. No need to bring a covered dish. No need to add the linky to your post. No need to include a button. Just come join the party and PAWTY ON

  1. I loved Ellen's Father's Day post too. Some women gravitate towards men who love children, for me it is definitely men who love animals! My hubby is over the top about ours too, and it's one of the things I love most about him!

    1. Yes. Men with weaknesses for our furbabies are the most touching and the most meaningful :)

  2. We missed the Cuddlywumps Cat Chronicles post (hey, Momma Kat, we think astronomy is pretty cool, too!), so we are going to go check it out now. :)

    Thank you for co-hosting the Pet Blogger Showcase, and for thinking of (and supporting) us. We love you lots!

    1. Thank you for stopping by! From as early as I remember until junior high, I was sure I wanted to be an astronaut. In college, if I didn't find physics so challenging, I would've majored in astronomy!
