[Still not sure what VBP is? Check here.]
Today, we have a special announcement regarding the VBP Blog Hop.
On January 17 of this year, Jet, Savannah, and I started a blog hop called VBP – Vocab Building Project (Check above link for more information).
We had lots of fun using new words, and I loved looking for French/English idioms (VBP) that were similar or not and which included the word cat. Unfortunately, life being life, we cannot get the energy needed to continue it right now. So we have decided to stop it, at least momentarily.
I would like to thank all the furriends who collaborated in this project:
Jet and his human, for coming up with the original idea for the blog hop! We’re sending you lots of purrs and hugs!
Savannah and her human, for their perseverance (VBP) and patience, and for posting when we couldn’t. We send you hugs and purrs too!
Miss Ann from Zoolatry for creating all the graphics that you see on this post, as well as the badges. Again, hugs and purrs!
Last but not least, thank you to all the furriends who pawticipated! We hope you had fun in the process. We certainly loved reading your posts! Lots of purrs!
A special shout-out to The Tabbies O Trout Towne for participating to all but 2 of the total of 11 hops! Thank you! Lots of purrs! And salmon!
So, for now, we are closing the VBP dictionary and stopping the hop. But one day maybe…
P.S.: If you had planned a VBP post and plan to post it, please post the link in the comment and I will post a link in a post next week. Thank you furry much for your understanding!
That’s a shame but all these things are so time consuming and you are committed each week. Perhaps you can start it up again in the holidays.:) Thank you for bringing it to us, we know how hard you all worked.. Have a wonderful Furzday xx00xx

:-) As Mollie so rightly said, these things are so time consuming :-)
Ditto fun but takes up time. Have a terrific Thursday.
Best wishes Molly
It was a fabulous idea and we loved reading the VBP posts but we all understand that life (rather annoyingly) gets in the way of our blogging projects. You guys did a brilliant job. Now enjoy your nap Texas, you deserve it.
You guys have done an excellent job!
This was a very noble endeavour, indeed! A few years ago, I had the same idea, sort of — except that I didn’t have a blog then. I developed a “CATionary” of words that contained “CAT” or a cat-related term.
with full appreciation and cognition of your Herculean efforts in ameliorating our languages, we humbly prostrate ourselves before your sagacious prowess.
Fanks for the fun big words!
Sorry you have to stop the hop for now. I have to admit that we never did get a post up for it even though it was always on our minds. Hopefully Jet and his mom will be ok too, haven’t heard from them in a long time.
I know. We are sending lots of purrs their way…
Even though I didn’t purrticipate, I enjoyed the posts and learned lots of new words!!!
Brilliant post Texas! I am running to my laptop now cuz I forgot the pawsome graphic Miss Ann did with our dictionary closed for now…purrrs

So sad to hear about this! I wish I could have joined the last few weeks, but I had been busy. Will miss it! Thank you for all your hard work Texas.
I don’t purrticipate but I so enjoy everyone else’s. xox
That is too bad you had to quit that. We always thought it was a good idea but we just didn’t get around to doing it. Bad us. You all did a great job with it. Our person just has trouble using her little brain.
Have a wonderful day.
Some things, even good ones, often come to an end. But…they can always be reestablished when the mood strikes you. For now, do some other fun things…it’s finally Spring! Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette
Wes is a tad sads. We has enjoyed reading your VPB blogs! But we loves reading yous and Jet and Savannah and yous guys will still bes here!
Perhaps a blog hop that piggybacks onto another one like on Wednesday would work better? Thursdays for us are always about Vet 101 or cat care.
Of course. we all understand because naps come first…. It’s hard to keep up with all the things on the web.
Have a great day.
Hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles
Une petite pause pour mieux repartir plus tard ?
Life can intrude on the best of idea Texas…when the time is right I’m sure VBP will make an appearance…i didn’t take part every week, but had a lot of fun reading and learning from everyone’s posts
I am sorry you guys can’t continue the VBP blog hop. In actual fact I think we only entered once!! But of course we have VBP pretty well every post, just didn’t do the link. Epic fail on the part of the human I think >^..^<
You are doing amazingly job!!!
Reblogged this on By the Mighty Mumford and commented:
A “VBP” DICTIONARY…CATS ARE SMART!
Texas, we always enjoyed reading everyone’s VBP posts. But we do understand having to stop it for now. It sure was fun and enlightening while it lasted. Thank you for that!
We loved reading the VBP blogs, Texas, but can understand that it’s a lot of work. So you take it easy, in the meantime I’ll exercise on all the new words you’ve learned me. Pawkiss :)
Gosh, we didn’t even know about the VPB hop but we think it sound like a fun way to wile away the hours…trying to figure out what cats are saying when they talk to humans, hahameow! Oh, and Teri says her life it too busy (or that she often fritters away time unproductively is more like it) but she said she will let us visit the archives so we know what we missed!
Yow Texas you n Savannah n Jetty did a great job on da VBP n me learned so much!!! Me did not pawticipate alot in da blogz but me Mum read all of yerz to me n helped me learn new werdz…

Well Texas my friend, there’s a time and a place for everything and I’m thinking one day you all will be ready to tackle VBP again. Meanwhile, take a rest and regroup. You guys did a GREAT job!
Kitty Hugs, Sammy
We enjoyed the VBP. Howdy to you too!
Its a shame but hope you’ll be able to start it up again at a later date
