by Janet Blue on July 16, 2016

Here we are just six days from our fourth blogoversary, and we have reached 1,000 posts. That milestone has left me rather speechless. When I embarked on this journey of chronicling the lives and antics of the Kitties Blue I had no idea I would have the attention span to write and publish 1,000 posts. I would like to list a few things (in no particular order) that the kitties and I have accomplished since starting this blog:

  1. Attending the past three BlogPaws Conferences,
  2. Interviewing Jackson Galaxy.
  3. Becoming a Cutehead and helping to transport kitties,
  4. Sponsoring the beautiful Swizzle at PAWS,
  5. Conducting several comment-a-thons with funds going to a variety of different rescues/shelters,
  6. Making so many wonderful friends in the pet blogging community and
  7. Starting the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, which will have it’s 101st post tomorrow.

I am using our 1000th post as the basis for today’s Caturday Art submission. Lily Olivia is the subject. As the oldest (age 17) of the Kitties Blue, she deserves that honor. If by some miracle The Cat on My Head makes it to 2,000 posts, Lily will more than likely not be with us.


Lily Olivia is basis for Caturday Art and 1000th post.

After reading your post, I got curious and wondered when I might meet that mark, only to check my stats and realize I’d posted 1070. It never occurred to me to pay attention to that, since I blog for fun.
