2nd Blogoversary!

Hi all, I don't usually post on the weekend, but since today is my 2nd blogoversary, I'm breaking with tradition :-)   I never celebrated my blogoversary last year so I didn't get a chance to say to how fortunate I consider myself to be part of such a fantastic cat community. 

Before I started my own blog, I had been lurking around for a while reading other cat blogs and thought they were so much fun and wildly creative.  It is a bit of a mystery how I found them though since I had not yet discovered the Cat Blogosphere.  Then on February 26, 2010 without a great deal of forethought I leapt into the breach and made my first post.  I blogged along for about four months with nary a comment or follower until Huffle Mawson ran across Cat's Cats and kindly introduced me to all her friends...that was a grand day, thank you again dear Huffle :-)

Things have changed so much since then, Molly went to the bridge in September 2010,

Molly and Mum
we adopted Jimmy two months later.  I know that was very soon, but I felt Molly would approve of helping a kitty who had a rough start in life just like she did. 

Baby Jimmy
and Kip joined our family in October 2011.

The wonderful friends I have found through blogging are a huge part of my life even though we have never met in person and I cherish these relationships.  Nothing makes me happier than blog-hopping around the world reading of your adventures, both feline and human.  I would like to thank everyone who comes by to visit this blog most sincerely for your friendship and thoughtfulness which enrich my life everyday!

much love,
Cat and the boys

Oh, Cat! I love that picture of you and Molly! Those Calico Girls have a special place in my heart.
The Cat Blogsphere is a better place because you're here. Your love of your kitty kids shows through in every post.
Congratulations on two years of sharing your family and bringing smiles to my face with writings and pictures of your lovely boys.

I know how you feel about boring family with cat tales, that's what's so nice about blogland. People who love cats never get fed up with seeing them over and over again.
I see some people's eye's glaze over when I start on about my cats and quickly realise its time to stop talking about them. lol
Love the little new boy Jimmy, reminds me of Quentin on Joanne's blog...http://snippetsandscrapsandpieces.blogspot.com/, If you go back on her blog you will see how tiny he was when she got him...

Happy second anniversary!

And no need to feel bad about missing what you had with Molly so much that you decide to help another cat.

God's Little People said...

Aww Cat, happy blogoversary. I'm THRILLED to have connected with you. Thanks for being such a sweet blogger friend.
Big hug
from Joan
P.s. I hope to visit more often - a tough winter + bad internet connection has kept me from being around the blogger world as much as I would like to.


We are sorry we are a day late in commenting, but we wanted to stop in and say we are so glad you all started blogging. Concats on your second blogoversary.

Happy Second Blogaversary my friend. I have enjoyed your kitties ever since I first met them. I didn't know about the CB either and Admiral blogged about a YEAR with maybe 1 or 2 replies.

Happy blogoversary and may you have many more. I just say that even as a kitten, Jimmy had a wise look about him.

Happy 2nd Blogoversary, Cat and Cats! It seems like yesterday that I met you online. Molly was still here with us then, and had her fair share of LOL-Cats.

And it's been a real pleasure to watch Jimmy and Kip grow and develop into handsome and loving mancats.

Here's to many more blogging years ahead!
