we love girls’ weekends. we can’t get enough of them. so when our favorite friends from nutrish offered us the chance to spend a girls’ weekend together at catcon in los angels, we jumped at the chance. first of all, we absolutely love working with nutrish. besides having pet food products that we adore and use faithfully, the people who represent their company are absolutely wonderful. we love spending time with them. second of all, we got to spend the weekend together….and attend catcon. we spent three fun filled days catching up together, visiting with our friends from nutrish and soaking up all that catcon los angeles had to offer. does it really get any better?
it is impossible to put all of catcon into words but we can share with you some of our favorite moments and items we saw at catcon. if you are in the los angeles area, let us just tell you…go. the costumes alone are worth the trip…and where else can you find multiple “you’ve cat to be kitten me right meow” shirts all in one place? seriously…go. you will be glad you did.
in case you cannot make it, here are our favorite things about catcon. this list doesn’t do our trip justice but it can give you a small taste of all we were able to experience that weekend.
lolareally, she is the highlight of catcon. the fact that heather actually spontaneously adopted a kitten from the spca booth at catcon is nothing short of miraculous. how could she resist though? lola is the sweetest little thing ever. she would melt your heart too.
the nutrish booth was amazing. it felt like we were walking into a very trendy, cat loving apartment. the very best thing about this apartment, however, was that there were artists there making caticatures. you read that right. there were two artists who joined a human’s face with their cat’s body and made a drawing for people to take home. people stood in line for hours to get this done and the results were amazing. we are waiting on ours which are being sent from our nutrish friends but we wish you could see some of the pictures. seriously. so good.
we also cannot get enough of nutrish and it was great getting to be with them for a while handing out samples of nutrish cat food. we use nutrish everyday and have for years so it's a no brainer to share our love with others. it's done wonders for our cats and it can be bought wherever we do our normal grocery shopping. #winning. if you haven't tried it, click here to get started. you won't be disappointed!
for real. this picture. i have no words to describe it. #catconla
made by cleo cat collars
we couldn't pass up the made by cleo booth. jane, mr. darcy and lola are all sporting new collars. they have the best patterns of fabric for the collar and then matching or coordinating flowers and bow ties. mr. darcy has never looked more handsome.
shen and sam co. candles
these candles smell amazing. we spent a really long time going from scent to scent because we could not decide which were our favorites. they are also subtly decorated with cat prints that could blend easily into everyday decor. they smelled fantastic and i want one for every room of the house. if you can't make it to cat con, you can find their candles at shenandsam.com. you can also get 20% off your order until august 31st with the code: catconla.
peach pet liners
these beds are simple and the prints are trendy and bright. they are perfect for a clean, happy look in the house. heather couldn't resist one for lola and she curled right up and slept in it her very first night home. they also assemble easily together and do not take up much space in the house. they are perfect for small spaces or for people like me who don't want the cat accessories to take over.
kafbo scratching posts
we loved these handmade scratching posts. they are shaped into animals and the scratching part is made of cardboard pieces. they are durable and simple and are easily portable to any room of the house. we loved that they were made out of really beautiful wood. lola played with hers right away and we know it will save pieces of furniture all over heather's house. you can find yours by looking here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/KAFBO
the very best thing about catconla? well, that is simple. we got to spend it together. it doesn't matter where we are, we are just happy to have each other to walk through life with. the fact that we got to experience cat con, los angeles with one another and with our friends from nutrish, well, that is just icing on the cake.
