OUR FIRST BLOGOVERSARY

by Janet Blue on July 21, 2013

So, we finally made it! Our very first blogoversary. Our first post was one year ago today! This is our 170th. We are particularly excited because our very dear friend, Sammy, and his mom, Pam, from onespoiledcat sent us the most beautiful anniversary card. Isn’t it fabulous! We love how Sammy and Misty May are wearing party hats.

We are so proud of our short-attention-span mom for what she has accomplished in the past year that we wanted to give her an award. It is a little further down the page ’cause we don’t want it to compete with Sammy’s card.

As our mom is very generous, she asked us if she could pass this on to some of her cat blogging friends. How could we refuse? It is our gift to her, and she is free to gift it to others as long as she keeps one for herself. She also asked if she could make the very minimal rules for passing this on. Of course, we said, “yes,” again.

She is passing this on to blogs featuring five or more kitties. She figures that anyone taking care of at least that many feline fur people as well as writing a blog must be a true multi-tasker and so needs this award. She knows that some of those folks even have “real” jobs, husbands, children, dogs and other pets as well as other blogs. And some of them even post everyday!

blogoversary.awardThis is the award we designed and presented to her for our blogoversary. Do you like how it has our mug shots?

Her only requirements for her recipients (if they accept the award) are:  Post it on their site, thank us kitties and link back to our site.

Without further ado, here are her recipients:

 Jacqueline’s Cat House  Katnip Lounge    The Chronicles of Zee and Zoey    Colehaus Cats    Brian’s Home    Random Felines Furries of Whisppy ♥ Purrchance to Dream    fourwhitepaws  ♥  Critters in the Cottage   Cats of Wildcat Woods  Margs Animals  Tomcat Commentary by Timmy  Nerissa’s Life  Da Tabbies O Trout Towne  The REAL Maple Syrup Mob  on a more personal note  Cat’s Cats: The Fab Five  Lilacs & Cats  Tails from the Foster Kittens  ManxMnews  The Creative Cat Sometimes Cats Herd You ♥ Jan’s Funny Farm ♥ Cory Cat Blog ♥ HotMBC ♥

Mom wants to meet, follow and share in the joys as well as the trials and tribulations of as many of the brave multi-cat caregivers and their furry families as she can. And she’d love to pass this award on to other current (active and posting with at least one post in July) blogs having five or more kitties that she has not listed. (She realizes that she, by no means, has visited every kitty blog in this past year and will undoubtedly miss some with a house full of felines.)

So if you know of such blogs, she would appreciate it if you would list their URL in a comment. Those of you doing so will be entered in a random drawing for a surprise gift. The more current multi-cat blog URLs you list, the more chances you have to win. Those you list, however, must not have been listed in a previous comment.

All others coming over to pawty and leaving a comment will be entered in a second random drawing for a prize.

To be eligible for prizes, commenters must live in the U.S. or Canada and leave their comment no later than midnight EDT on July 24.

So finally…let’s get this pawty started. We’ve got games, full bird feeders, catnip and plenty of other noms. And especially for Sammy, as thanks for our beautiful card and because he is bringing his special trunk of costumes so we can all play dress up, we’ve got BACON!

Before we go, however, Mom wants to say something. I am so appreciative of the wonderful, caring and compassionate community of bloggers who feature their fur people in their blogs. I had no idea how many friends and kindred spirits I would find who would actually be interested in reading my blog, offering help and suggestions and leaving comments. My heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you. I look forward to writing this blog and reading all your imaginative, inspiring, intriguing and informative blogs for years to come. – Janet

Purrs and hugs to our mom, our followers and all her award recipients, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

Thank you so much for your kind nomination! I’m truly touched! I apologize for the delay, as I was away from my computer for the past week. Many congratulations to you and your kitties on your blogversary! 🙂 I’ve subscribed to your blog and look forward to reading about day in the life of your beautiful fur-kids! 🙂

Happy Blogoversary! I hope you have many many more (and thank you for the award :D)

You’re never too late to stop by. We are just glad that you were able to visit and find a way to comment. We’re sorry you missed the pawty, but there have been so many celebrations lately you may have been too tuckered out anyway. Even though you weren’t here on the 21st, please feel free to grab the reward I created for all attendees. It will be on our post pawty blog. Smooches and scritches from me and hugs from the kitties, Janet

That is true about cat blogs, most seem very popular. When I decided to do this, I never investigated how many cat blogs were already in existence. That might have discouraged me, so I am glad I didn’t. I always enjoy the gorgeous photos on your blog. The sparrow photos on your most recent post are quite incredible. Isn’t that amazing how that little guy seemed to remember you, came back and let you pet him. We took care of a robin (Edith, All in the Family inspired name) for a long time a very long time ago (prior to having kitties). She had a leg injured by a dog. After she healed we would take her outside everyday. She never flew away and always returned to the inside when we went in, until finally one day she decided it was her time to move on. She was a crazy thing. I might have to find some old photos and tell her story on this bog one day. Purrs and hugs from the kitties and thanks from me for coming by and visiting us, Janet

You are one of those multi-taskers and multi-talented people of which I am in awe. Posting four times a day is way beyond my abilities. Throwing in your art and gardening, I always wonder when you sleep. And I am so jealous of you having so many black kitties. I love black kitties so much. We haven’t had one since my “heart” kitty, Thelma, went to the RB many, many years ago. Purrs and hugs from the kitties and many thanks from me for stopping by and picking up your award, Janet

Concats and Happy Blogoversary! Here’s to many more to come and lots more BACON! We love the award for having so many kitties. At one time we would have qualified but we haven’t been adding kitties as spaces opened up because Julie is so feline phobic. But, God bless you for taking in some many.

Four is plenty and we can’t believe MMM would do that well either if you added more kitties. We are so glad that she is improving. It is so heart-breaking that we can’t talk to our fur people and reassure them that everything will be okay. I love checking in on your kitties to see what’s happening and follow Mica Minnie Moo’s progress. Thanks for being one of our followers. Purrs and hugs from the kitties and kisses and scritches from me for all your kits, Janet

Happy Blogoversary!!!! I’m gonna try to come up with a few blogs with 5 or more kittehs for you. Cheshire Love Karma http://cheshireloveskarma.com/ has Cheshire, Meggy, Reggie, Lexie and Karma and maybe a few others. Then there’s Pearl Cat and Her Family. http://pearlcat.wordpress.com/ They haven’t blogged in a long time. Did you mention the Bassie Bulletin? http://mizzbassie.net/

As I mentioned in my e-mail, I will definitely check out these blogs and let you know how many entries you’ll receive for the drawing. We only have two others thus far so the odds of winning are good for each of you. If Pearl Cat hasn’t blogged in a long time, they will not be eligible for an award. On Thursday I will have a little something for everyone who comments prior to midnight tomorrow as I am feeling badly that my kids designed such a specific award. Stay stunning.

We are so glad the bookmarking thing worked out for you. In the begining, mom had commented as Janet@TheCatonMyHead or janetblue with her photo. A while back she changed to Kitties Blue with two different photos of Fiona. She posted about doing it, but not efurrybuddy reads every post. She made the change ’cause we do 98% of the commenting. Glad the confusion is cleared up now and you can comment when you like. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Your most recent post was so touching, as you know, since we left you a comment. Our mommy loves all the kitties at your house. Your blog was the one that convinced her to change all the photos on our Felines page to “mug shots.” Your photos were done so well and showed off each kitty purrfectly. The last year has been a huge learning experience with lots of trial and error and sometimes even getting something to work the way she hoped. She is so appreciative to all the experienced bloggers who have shown her the way by their well-done and creative examples. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo and a smoochy from mom for all your kits.

We get all our posts from other blogs via e-mail. When mom first started out, a friend explained about Google Reader (of course, now defunct) but it went straight through her head from one ear to the other. So subscribing by e-mail seemed like the best way to go. We are so glad you’ll be able to read and comment when and if you please without expending lots of energy looking for us. Glad you liked your award. Only two in the running for the big prize, so hope you can find some other multi-cat blogs to tell us about.

We appreciate it very much and promise to get a bit more organized to put it and the other sweet award you gave us on a post soon. The hoomans have been getting visitors lately and trying to do everything can get out of our paws when we don’t get the help we demand and deserve!! But we haven’t forgotten you 🙂

Now…about that bacon…we have never tried bacon but it looks as though you may very well be on to something…Yummy!

Here’s to many more years of blogging 🙂

Kitties Blue July 22, 2013 at 6:07 pm

We’ve never had bacon either, but it seems to be a favorite among a whole lot of our furiends. We don’t think Mom is planning on giving us any either. Sometimes awards can be a bit of a pain in the butt with lots of rules and questions to answer, but Mom, still being new to this, is very happy they are out there. She knows it means that people are reading and appreciating her efforts, and they can be a huge morale booster on days when she rather be gardening. All that said, we made our award easy to accept and any we do in the future will be much the same. We know how hard it is to get good help. Somedays we rather be in the garden than writing all the comments for her. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo. Mom sends a big hug as well.

Nylablue, our very sweet sisfur, we are so glad that you feel well enough to join us today. It wouldn’t be a pawty without you. Mom’s been cooking bacon all day. We think she’s probably cooked at least three pig’s worth. She had no idea how much kitties like bacon. She’s now wondering why the cat food manufacturers don’t make bacon flavored food. We don’t really eat people food ’cause most of us hurl if we do, but we’ve been checking out the nip. Purrs and hugs and prayers that you health continues to improve from your sisfurs and brofur and oodles of love from Mom to you and Sherri-Ellen. And xoxoxoxoxo back to you.

Thanks for the lovely comment. Deb, you are one of the bloggers I really admire and one of those super multi-taskers. Hope your dream to get on Ellen happens for you. The effort you have put in definitely needs to be rewarded. Thanks for your great cat advocacy posts as well. Purrs and hugs from the kitties and a super big hug from me, Janet

So glad you were able to join us today. We know several four-cat houses with blogs. I have been feeling pretty guilty today that the kitties made the award so specific. I am thinking I will have a little something in a few days for everybody who stopped by today. I appreciate the support and kind comments so very much.

We are only allowed four kitties in our city if they have not been spayed or neutered. If they have been, six per household are allowed. We tried to stay within the rules for many, many years, but just gave up. The Cat Dad won’t let me exceed the eight, however. Even if animal control decided to check us out, they’d be lucky to find six in one place at one time. Thank you for the great song. I have always wondered how you get all the special characters when you send your songs. Care to share the secret? Thanks so much for visiting us today.

Cats of the Wildcat Woods are included in my original list, but I am sure they will be excited that you also thought of them. When I first found your blog, you were the only one with more kitties than we have. All my hints to our Cat Dad that eight is not enough as well as sharing your blog with him, unfortunately, haven’t changed his mind. I absolutely love your diverse group and seeing and reading about their antics. Purrs and hugs from the kitties and prayers from me that your knee will soon be 100 percent and prayers that your kits’ dad’s injuries prove not to be as severe as thought, Janet

janetblue July 21, 2013 at 12:08 pm

I absolutely had no idea how much kitties like bacon until I met Sammy. Our eight get very little people food, mostly because they tend to hurl. I do believe that Lily has licked some bacon grease after we’ve cooked the bacon, but that is the extent of it. If you all eat so much that you need to hurl, please wait until you get home. Thanks so much for reading and commenting with regularity. It really means a lot to me. Purrs and hugs from the kitties and a great big thanks from me, Janet

(and Tipp is getting some ideas cause he’s been working up to sleeping on mom’s head! He’s made it as far as her neck….. yikes!)

janetblue July 21, 2013 at 8:22 am

I love the kits sleeping on my head, except when it is as hot as it has been and when Misty May decides to drape herself across my face so I can’t breathe and end up with a mouthful of fur. Good luck Tipp on making it past your mom’s neck. The neck is also a great snuggly place, however. Purrs and hugs from the kitties and thanks from me for stopping by today to celebrate, Janet

Dear Miss Janet and Kitties…..HAPPY BLOGAVERSARY!! I’m glad you liked the card I made with Mom’s help – we adore your blog and all of you and are ever so happy we met – we can gripe about the Virginia weather with you too! I see you’ve serving piles of bacon so I hope you don’t mind if I just curl up and EAT a big pile of it….yum. I think the new award you cats made for your Mom is gorgeous…..my Mom says it SEEMS like there are at least five cats around here thanks to me and my antics but you do have a lot of friends who have a house full of kitties who will LOVE that beautiful badge you made! Here’s to MANY more years of happy, fun blogs…….we send SAMMY HUGS and HUMAN HUGS on your special day.

Though we live a couple of hours away from each other, I feel like we are neighbors, and I consider you and Pam to be some of my best friends. If not for Pam’s instructions, we would not have that award. I look forward to reading about you every single day and am so honored that you and your mom enjoy stopping by to see what we are doing and always leaving a nice comment.
