The other day my pal Brewskie Butt blogged about fist bumps versus paw bumps. A fist bump is a common human gesture of good will. There’s even a Wikipedia page devoted to it. But Brew bemoaned the fact that the paw bump gets no such respect. In fact, if you Google “paw bump,” you wind up with some really gross images of bumps (meaning growths) on paws. Yeech! So Brew has given us kitties a challenge: we all need to blog about paw bumps, with a photo of us in action. And you must make sure that you tag the photo “paw bump” so that Google Images picks it up. As you can see, I have a fine photo of myself trying to give my human the paw bump. (Since she is not up on cat gestures, she did not return it. Typical.) If enough of us kitties blog about it, we will bring respect to this cool kitty gesture, along with having some nice images showing up in searches, instead of the icky photos of paws with growths on them. So get on it and get paw bumping!
[…] goes to Keiko who got her whole Kitty Trio to pawticipate. And my pals Boris Kitty, RumblePurr and Sparkle the Designer Cat gave some pretty special *paw bumps* […]

So is a pawbump saying hello, pet me or give me some food? I will try to get Olie to give me one! 🙂
That’s one mean paw bump you got there. Gonna head over to Google and see if the nasty bumps are pushed off the front page. Icky bumps!

We’re real big on Paw Swats but Mommy can certainly CALL it a paw bump! Now we have to go check out our recent photos…

Oooh, I’ll have to see if I have a photo of me doing a paw bump!

Excellent Paw Bump, Sparkle! I’m not surprised your human didn’t get it. We are a little slow with these things. Pimp and Moo are up for the challenge as well, but we need to wait a Tuesday or two since we just did Outstretched Paw.
Not that you can ever have enough paws, but you know…

PAWesome bumpin’~! Mom is sad she can’t access your page from work. We’ll try to get some “Paw Bumps” this weekend!

We don’t think we have given any paw bumps but we will see what we can do.
Great pickchur, Sparkle! We will haff to have mom look thru all our pickchurs, and see if she capchured any paw-bumps!
This is a furry good idea Sparkle! We usually give head bumps rather than paw bumps but will see if we can do one at the same time our mommy has the camera ready – the timing of all this is very tricky when dealing with humans.
LOL, that is really funny. We will do our best to get a picture of a ‘paw bump’ that is not a bump on a paw. Our assistant will have to teach us to put our paw up first of all but we will give it a good try. We sure want Google to know what an official paw bump is. This will be a great project. Thanks for the idea.
Have a wonderful week end.

An excellent campaign, Sparkle. We’ll try to help too.
I thought you guys were all about head bumps? I’ll look to see if I have any such pictures and tag them accordingly just so no one will have to look at ugly bumps on paws…

Fabulous post, Sparkle! And a fabulous photo, too! That should kick out some of those icky Google Images. *Paw Bump*
