Welcome to Kitties Blue


2nd Blogoversary


When Kitties Blue and I began this blog two years ago we had no idea what we were doing. We received some basic instructions on how to use WordPress by our web-site designer and then were set loose to make our mark in the blogosphere. For our first 36 posts, our commenters consisted of one to a handful of friends. With our 37th post, “Scary Cat” on Halloween Wordless Wednesday 2012 we received three comments from individuals we didn’t know. It wasn’t until November 27, 2012, that we received comments from two individuals who still comment occasionally.

It was just last month when our legitimate comments surpassed our spam comments in number received. As of Sunday evening, we had received 10,153 valid comments. And if you were with us yesterday, you know that today marks our 401st post.

One goal I have for the blog which we have yet to achieve—receiving 50 comments on a post. Maybe today will be our lucky day.

blogoversaryWe were going to hang some streamers to celebrate, but Giulietta had other things in mind and refused to let go of them. With that in mind, we will just have to proceed to a special award for all our followers and our giveaway.


Without those of you who have befriended us during the last two years we either would have given up this project or been foundering  untethered somewhere in space. It is with our sincere and heartfelt appreciation that we made a little something for all of you. It is an award, but it comes with NO rules. We would be honored if you would display it on your blog and link to us, but that is up to each of you. We want to thank Nellie  (Cat from Hell The Thoughts and Mewsings of Nellie in the City) for designing this cool badge that we used to create the award.

And now for the fun part—our giveaway. We have two items and you only need to leave a comment prior to Thursday morning (July 24) at 8 a.m. EDT to be in the drawing. The first is for an autographed copy of the book, Sal Everybody’s Pal, which we reviewed recently. If you click on the book name, you can read the review and see some of the exquisite illustrations from the book. This giveaway is open to all readers.

Drinkwell-Original-Pet-Fountain blogoversaryThe second item we will be giving away is this new Drinkwell Fountain. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.

Winners will be determined by using Random.org.

And once again, thank you so much for following us. We hope you will continue to do so in the future.

With purrs and paw-pats from Kitties Blue and hugs from me, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Janet
