Pet Blogger Showcase 06/03/2017

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 05/06/2017. 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 04/15/2017.

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.

*** A Haven for Cats on Long Island - The Patricia H. Ladew Foundation - Lola The Rescued Cat ***
What would happen to your pets if something happened to you? What organizations are available for "special" pets that might be considered "unadoptable?" In this post, Lola shares The Patricia Ladew Foundation, a lifetime care organization dedicated to giving cats a second chance - particularly in the case of cats that would otherwise be euthanized. It's amazing to see the impact the Foundation has on the special kitties who call it home.

*** Fantastic Beasties and where to find them! - Erin the Cat (Princess) ***

Erin's always got something to say about everything, as you would expect of a Princess of discriminating taste ruling her domain. She also happens to be funny and sarcastic ... and sarcastic. In this post, Erin's hunting creatures in her Palace. The twist? The cool creatures she finds come from Bionic Basil's Mom, Cathrine Garnell and her Kit Knit CosPlay company. Bionic Basil also linked up to the last Showcase and we can personally vouch for Kit Knit CosPlay as Bear's loved every single thing we've gotten from them.

*** They've GOT to be kiddin' - Nerissa's Life ***

Seville always has us doubled over with laughter with his commentary on the crazy, nutty things we humans (and his furry siblings) do. But World Naked Gardenin' Day?!?! NONONONONONONONONONO. If I even so much as walked TOWARD the front door in a state of undress, Bear would have his bags packed by the time I got to the door. By the way, if you know the person in charge of naming holidays, Bear would like to suggest, "don't clip your cat's claws day!"

*** Animal Shelter Volunteer Life ***

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
