Wordless Wednesday with Gracie AND Blogoversary


OOPS!
How could she?
She forgot what today was?
ha ha ha ha!
Mom forgot this was the day 7 years ago she started blogging.

Mom would lose her head if it weren't attached.
We are grateful for the CB for reminding us!!!

***
Mom started this blog as a way to keep her memories intact.
Back in 2005 there weren't many cat blogs.
There was no CB.
Blogging was a new shiny brass penny.

***
Abby had been adopted in June of 2005 and I started an offline journal.
In fact, my journal began as my "search" for Abby.
When I began looking online for a 'journal' I found Blogger.
I found a few bloggers like Timothy and Max and many that are no longer blogging anymore.
We've seen so many changes over the years, and the best is in the influx of new cat
bloggers.

***
When this begun, it never occurred to me that bringing all of you into our hearts
would be such a blessing.
We never realized that there would such heartwarming joy to see new kitties added and such
poignant heart rending moments of when our dear friends pass to the Rainbow Bridge.
I am also realizing as time goes by, too quickly I might add, that our day will come to cross
over into that magical spot and it gives me pause to know that it will come sooner
rather than later.

***
But for now I wish to celebrate our 7th year.
We are coming up on our 2500 posting.
Who knew?
Thank you all for being on this journey with us!

  16. Happy Blogoversary to you! We are a year behind you but have also seen a lot of changes. When we first started, we were able to comment on most blogs every day, now we struggle to comment on just half of the blogs in our reader.
    That is a lovely picture of you Gracie.

  26. Happy Blogoversary! Seven years is a long time. I remember reading your blog before I even had cats. Now I will turn the comments over to Herman for his views on getting along with other cats. Thank you, Mom. I think how cats get along depends a lot on their personalities. Emma never got over being a bit scared of me and I admit that I was bit mean to her. Spyro was never afraid of me and we bonded almost instantly. Oja started out scared of both of us because she was smaller then we were, but she soon realized that Spyro would not hurt her and she bonded with him first. It went back and forth between Oja and me. I reassured Oja from the start that I wouldn't hurt her, but she didn't believe me. She still hissed and snarled at me after she made friends with Spyro. Then Oja started making overtures of friendship toward me and I rebuffed her. Just this morning, I started making friendly gestures toward her and she walked away from me, but we are friends now. Maybe Abby doesn't feel secure in her role as Alpha cat. I feel very secure in my role as Alpha cat. Oja made a bid to be Alpha and Spyro submitted, but I didn't. We have come to an agreement and Oja and I don't challenge each other any more. When we both want something, the cat who gets there first gets it. I hope this helps a bit.
