Top 10 of ’10: Kitty Paw
Happy New Year! I can’t believe that today is 1.1.11. Twenty-ten was a good year for me…and for Kitty Paw. As we enter into the great unknown (I know, I had to be a little dramatic), I thought it’d be fun to share my top 10 favorite Kitty Paw moments for 2010. In no particular order…

At the beginning of the year, Kitty Paw loved to sit in her perch. She won’t have anything to do with it now. Perhaps we can make her interested in it again in 2011. Either way, I still love this picture of her.

We got a storm dorm at some point during the year. Kitty Paw has really enjoyed sitting at the door and watching the birds. I’m sure she wishes she could go outside and chase them…but I’m not sure she would know what to do with herself if she actually got outside.

Kitty Paw loves laying on the couch. At one point in the year, this was her favorite spot (it changes regularly). She has since moved to the top of the couch or to our new animal print blanket.

Kitty Paw has been known to attach herself to whatever is laying around. Whenever we place a bag or suitcase on the floor, she thinks it’s an invitation to lay on the bag (or suitcase). It’s pretty cute.

I can get pretty bored during the week. So, one day, I decided to terrorize Kitty Paw with one of those zhu zhu pets. She was very curious…for all of 15 minutes.
Closet Kitty Paw
We have a really warm orange blanket that we only pull out on cold nights. Kitty Paw loves this orange blanket and has been known to sneak into the closet (we store it in the closet) for a nap. In this photo, she’d been caught in the act.
Kitty Paw Snarl RS
You all know this picture. I was playing around with my new macro lens when I snapped a picture of Kitty Paw by the door. It appears that I’ve caught her in mid-lick, but she looks like she’s either snarling or giving me her best Elvis impression. You’ll see this shot again, tomorrow. It was this photo that turned Kitty Paw into a star.

During Halloween, I thought it would be fun to put Kitty Paw in some pet pajamas. She didn’t think my idea was very cute and proceeded to run from me until I could take it off of her.
Paw Humbug RS
The infamous Paw Humbug Christmas card – need I say more? Actually, I wasn’t planning on sending out Christmas cards this past year, but this photo has been a real hit. You’ll see it again tomorrow.
Sparkle New Years RS
I took this photo tonight for The Paper Mama’s weekly challenge. Since I’m the guest judge this coming week, I thought I should contribute something news worthy. Kitty Paw did not enjoy being dressed up. For more sparkly shots, go to:

So that’s Kitty Paw’s year-end review. I hope you’ll join me tomorrow for Memories, Dreams and Reflections. Until then, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    She is so photogenic!

    That was going to be my first question, “How did you get Kitty Paw to cooperate??” LOL! Beautiful, as always! And I love your photo fonts!

    Aww, I love kitty paw! My girls are always changing their favourite sleeping spot too, and they’ll jump at the chance to sleep on anything we’ve left on the floor, even if it’s just a piece of paper! Gotta love cats!

    Happy New Year! great cat! :)

    Aww, these are all wonderful Kitty Paw…you are so cute!

    Aww kitty paw is so sweet! I love the pictures. I hope you had a wonderful NYE!

    Beautiful!!! Love the shots and it is great seeing them all in one post! Fab!

    I love all your photos of KittyPaw especially the zhuzhu pet one! And I love your red door =]

    You gotta love all kitty paws pictures. (and I think once you have your own kid you are going to be blown away by how good those pictures are going to turn out because you already are amazing.)I saw the new years one in flickr and I just knew that you would be using it for this. lol.

    OMG, I am rolling on the floor laughing seeing Kitty Paw in a tiara. I can’t imagine she likes any of her costumes, but she looks Oh so CUTE in them! I love your Top 10 of ’10!

    Haha, those are great! Love the zhu zhu pet one, and the skeleton one! : )

    Kitty Paw’s eyes are just amazing, I like the one where she’s cuddling on the bag.

    Kitty Paw is so awesome! LOVE the last one!
    Happy New Year Ashley! I wish you the best in 2011!

    I love Kitty Paw. She truly is a star. My cat won’t let me near her with a camera. I can get my moms cat from time to time though.

    Aww I love your photos!! Totally reminds me of our cat :). She also LOVES suitcases and back packs.. especially when Hubby and I are getting ready to go away on a trip, and 2 are stacked on top of each other on top of the couch (for vacuuming reasons)… she decided to find a way to get herself way up on top. It was pretty cute :).

    They’re all so great. I just love the one on the couch… so peaceful. I could just curl up with a sleeping cat right now and take a nap! :)

    She is a beautiful cat and I love how you’ve captured her in photos. The one in the suitcase is beyond cute! Thanks for sharing her with us :)

    She’s so awesome. I love so many of those photos! She seems like such a silly girl. Still love the Halloween shot…. and the Zhu Zhu pet angle! :D

    I love cats. Nice ones, that is. And Kitty Paw looks nice…she’s so cute. Especially when dressed up. :D My favorite was probably Kitty Paw on the backpack…very cat-ish. :)

    Happy New Year and God bless!

    Bwahahaha!! I’ve got to start dressing up my cats more often. ;)

    I love your new banner! But how can you not love Kitty Paw Paw?

    Cute cute photos! I love them all and Kitty Paw is one photogenic cat!! Love them!! Hope you have a wonderful new year!!

    Awww…I feel so honored that I got a sneak peek of KP in her tiara – absolutely love it! You know you’re one of my faves…so glad we e-met this year. I still remember the first post you ever commented on on my blog. It was Collin on the train tracks and I said it was a little cliche. You wrote “who cares???!” and I was like…woa, this girl speaks her mind – LOL! My KP Xmas card is still perched on my front table and I think she is enjoying the view. LOVE the KP pics….what a cutie! HUGS!!! XOXOXO

    I saw Kitty Paw earlier on the photo challenge – my favourite is that last photo – your mum’s dog looks ever so cute too!

    Oh that Kitty Paw is so photogenic!!! Love that halloween costume! :)

    They are all great shots, I love her new year getup the best! What is it with cats and bags? Ours do the same thing. Fir some reason she looks really young to me in the orange blanket shot, like an older kitten.

    Love them all. Thanks so much for joining in. :D I love the last two. Kitty Paw is so cute!

    YAY!!! I am glad you joined in after all. I knew Kitty Paw would be popular. I just love the snarl. I know everyone loves the snarl and of course the skeleton shot is awesome.

    Also, thanks for being so kind and commenting on so many of the blogs that linked up with us. You are awesome.

    I love all of the pictures of Kitty Paw! The last one is my absolute favorite!

    These are all so adorable! I’m glad to know I’m not the only person who has their pet as their kid! haha!

    My favorite would have to be the orange blanket one (cute story) and the one with the toy (great perspective).

    I’m a dog person, but Kitty Paw is sure a cute cat!

    Aw, Kitty Paw is soooo pretty :)
    That halloween shot cracks me up still today!
    Happy New Year, Ashley – I’ve enjoyed following your blog and you continue to be a source of creative inspiration. Looking forward to what 2011 brings!

    Ha! Now I must know where you got that kitty tiara. My kitty has been bothering for one for ages and though I’ve searched, I haven’t found one yet. Kitty Paw is so full of character, and you’ve captured it beautifully. The costumes don’t hurt either. I love her eyes. She has gorgeous big round eyes.
    thanks for stopping by my place and leaving those encouraging words. It sure does help on those days when a person feels like nothing’s going right. Happy New Year to you and Kitty Paw!

    so cute!

    I can’t stand it. I love that one of KP hunting but then saw the outfit…how can you not put Kitty Paw in clothing every day??

    Love all the Kitty Paw pictures! he Halloween outfit is the best! So cute!

    love them all

    Absolutely adorable!

    Love all of these! I really ought to take more photos of my pups!
    Happy New Year!

    Wondeful! What a star she is :O) Love the halloween shot!

    You’ve done a fabulous job of capturing his personality!! Too funny!! I love them!!

    Thanks for linking up with us!

    Oops I meant she! I need to go to bed :O)

    I LOVE THESE! Cats make me sneeze and blow up like a balloon, but your Kitty Paw makes me want a cat to cuddle with!

    Those shots are so gorgeous! I love them all! And doesn’t she look great with that crown! :-)
