|Me and Deb Barnes hanging out in the Catification Lounge.|
Of course, there is more to BlogPaws than just hanging out with friends (but that's still the best part!). Mom saw some wonderful speakers and went to lots of breakout sessions. One of the speakers was Betsy Saul, co-founder of PetFinder.com. She gave a brief history of animal rescue in the United States. She also gave a sad statistic: only 2.5% of lost cats are returned to their owners. That reminded Mom that we still have lots of work to do!
Another speaker was Amanda LeGaux of Trone Brand Energy. She gave a short, but extremely informative, presentation about the kind of information pet owners are looking for on the web. I'll talk more about this presentation in a later blog post.
