Happy Birthday Kiril – Host Of The Carnival Of The Cats!

Carnival Of The Cats

This week, please join me in extending warm birthday wishes to Kiril Kundurazieff – our Friendship Friday Week 141 Friend Of The Week – and the official new host of The Carnival Of The Cats!

For those of you who are unaware of the rich history of The Carnival Of The Cats, this long-running meme has connected cat lovers around the globe since the Spring of 2004!

Unlike newer blog parties that provide contributors places to link – The Carnival Of The Cats is a curated column with a personalized touch!

Kiril and his merry band of contributors take the time to share posts and news that they feel are relevant and of interest to the cat-loving community at large – provide personal commentary about the post – and contribute to the overall since of comradery and kinship among cat lovers at large!

If you are a cat lover – particularly one owned by cats – I invite you to visit The Carnival Of The Cats – The Change Is Good Edition to learn more about what the carnival is about – to make some new friends – and to share your cat-loving news with Kiril!

P.S. I’ve volunteered to be one of Kiril’s roving reporters so watch out – you never know when you and your cats might be the next star at The Carnival Of The Cats!

    Well, I only found two blogs on your list, but I followed all the twitters! That is a great idea I must say! Loved your video of the mountain dogs. Hubby & I both watched it. We’re definitely dog people. We have a black lab we call “Baby” & she’s spoiled rotten. LOL Have a great weekend my friend and God bless.

      Aren’t those dogs adorable? Bernese Mountain Dogs are high on my most wanted breeds of dogs I’d love to be owned by!
      Have a great weekend. I know Baby is living the good life!

    Those dogs sure are having fun in the snow! I will have to remember this the next time I have to deal with it (i.e. tomorrow morning … ha ha). 🙂

    We are friends with Kiril, and he is a great guy. We hope he had a terrific birthday!

    Hugs, and thank you for hosting!

    Well Ramona, I’m still trying to figure out what to put in the Twitter Boost! 🙂 I see the box for URL and think my blog. Should it be from my twitter account? Still getting the hang of twitter!

    Anyway, my photo tips today include the beautiful Lady and Kuzco as subjects. See how much they’ve grown! I’m trying to talk my sister into getting a new cat. She lost her Bowser recently to illness. He was with her for years and years. She still has two other cats, but my kittens have made such a difference for me with all the losses.

    I’ll let you know when she finally finds the right one!

    Hope you have a good weekend!

      Hi Mary,

      For the Twitter Boost, start by adding your Twitter account. If you hover over my link (#1) or click on it you will see what the correct format looks like if you’re not sure what to put there!

      You can also post a direct link to a tweet that you have shared on Twitter that you would like retweeted (if you click on link #3 you will see an example of that from Stanley & Katrina). She pinned a link from her blog to Twitter – and then pinned the Twitter URL to the link-up so that we could find it and retweet it for her!

      Your kittens are growing so beautifully! I am sorry for your sister’s loss. I hope she is able to add a new kitten to her family when she is ready!

      Have a lovely weekend!

  16. Thanks for hosting again! Have a great weekend!

  17. Kimberly says:

    Hello Cute Lady! It is always a pleasure to be a part of your party. Thank you. I would love it if you would stop by our party. We pin and tweet everything.
    Happy Friday! Lou Lou Girls

    I wish my dog liked snow. She hates going out when it’s cold.
