Happy 6th Blogoversary!

Today is my 6th Blogoversary! I can't believe it, really. I started this blog on a whim a long time ago, back when I was in a one-cat apartment. Josie and Huggy Bear were two of four kittens who had recently been born to a neighbor's momma cat, and they were being awful cute around the apartment building, sleeping on the handrails, and playing around Mom and Dad's pumpkins they had carved. Honestly, I never expected the blog to last. It was a way for Dad to see pictures of me when he was at work, and to keep a little journal of the kittens as Mom and Dad fostered the litter of Josie and Huggy Bear (and Curly and Frisky) until they were adopted out. But then I started meeting other cat bloggers. When I started, I had no idea there were even other cats out there with blogs. Now look at how many there are. I remember visiting every cat blog in less than 30 minutes -- it was so easy back then. I know I've slowed with my posts a little over the past year -- it's been a bit of a challenging year -- but I'm still proud to be a member of the Cat Blogosphere and try to visit when I get a chance. I'm very thankful for all of you. And I'm looking forward to the adventures of the coming year!

Happy Blogoversary, furiends! Wow, 6 whole years is a very long time!! Here's to many, many more!

Mom remembers when she could visit everyone in as little as 30 minutes. Not that way now, it takes a few hours. She has now decided to only comment on everyone's blog on Mondays.

Happy 6th blogoversary!
YOU are so right back when we started it was so different than the way it is now. So many people (and cats) have come and gone -- some just stopped posting, others went to the Bridge.

It's so fun meeting the new kits as they come along. We are so glad that you are still blogging!
