Cat's Meow Mews & Mailbox #31











Cat's Meow Mailbox is inspired by the great weekly recap book memes (Mailbox MondayWaiting On WednesdayIt’s Monday! What are you reading? and Sunday Post)





I've spent much of the week in a head cold-induced stupor but did get a good project done. I'm participating in the BlogPaws Spring Clean Your Blog series and this week submitted my blog to the community for honest, gentle feedback. One very useful suggestion to come out of it was the creation of tabs/pages. Now right under my blog header there are separate pages for Product Reviews, Truffles Interviews, Caturday Art, and Remembering Tara posts. I also created a new Contact page. I think it gives my blog a more professional look, plus it gathers together some of my favorite collections of posts in one place.

Last week on Mochas, Mysteries and Meows:
* Portly to Playful is Possible with #HillsPet
* Feeding Frenzy, a Guest Blog Post by Liz Mugavero
* Truffles Interviews...Creme Brulee from JJ Cook's Death on Eat Street (w/Review & Giveaway)
* #ThrowbackThursday: The Memorial Wall
* Fortune Cookie by Josi Kilpack Blog Tour: Top 10 List

  3. Well done on doing the improvement work on the blog, I still struggle with the technical site of blogging. Your cat design is easily recognisable and memorable. Enjoy your book haul.

  5. Great job with the spring cleaning, Melissa and Truffles! It's been a crazy few weeks for the humans with that work stuff, but hopefully we'll have time for some cleaning, too. :)

    Hope you're feeling better!
