by Janet Blue on July 21, 2015




Today is our third blogoversary. If you had asked any of us if we would still be doing this three years after starting, we would have said, “no way!” With our typist having an attention span of about a nano second, we would have expected her to move on to something else by now. Yet, here we are!

We have made oodles of new friends—kitties, woofies, bunnies and other critters as well as humans. Unfortunately, we have lost some of those friends along the way. Whether with us still or over the Bridge, we are thankful to each and every one of these friends.

Some of us have gained significant others: Astrid has Sampy, Lisbeth has Charles and Mau has Allie. Lily Olivia had a nice friendship with (Leo)pold Lion Heart, but he was one of those friends we lost, which made us all super sad.

We began the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop 50 weeks ago and will soon celebrate it’s first anniversary. We are delighted with its success and thank all who have participated during that time.

Three cats joined our family as honorary Kitties Blue: Bailey Boat Cat, Swizzle (the kitty we sponsor at PAWS) and the lovely Nylablue, who became an angel last fall.

Mau joined Cat Scouts and advanced to the highest rank: Sabertooth Tiger.

Mom attended two BlogPaws conventions as well as Bark World/Meow World. She’s learned lots about blogging at those events, but the best part has been meeting many of our friends in person.

All-in-all we have had three rather eventful years of blogging. As part of our celebration we are having a giant giveaway, with five different prizes. Simply leave a comment prior to Thursday, July 23, at 5 p.m. EDT to be entered.

Winners, and which prize they receive, will be determined using The prizes are:


Cat Dreams print by Katzy


The Cat on My Head Water Bottle


A copy of A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen


Cute Cat Socks


Cat Toys (with choice of pink/orange or blue/green wand toy)


We cannot say it enough, “Thank you to all our friends and all those who have visited our blog in the past three years. We couldn’t have accomplished this without your support”

XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Happy blogoversary, dear friends! We are SO glad you started blogging three years ago, and filled with happiness that you are going strong as you reach the three year mark. You bring so much joy to so many others — you are true blessings, and wonderful friends.

We tell Swizzle how lucky she is to be an honorary Kitty Blue every time we see her. The only higher honor we can think of will be if (when!) she finds a forever home of her own. Thank you for sponsoring her while she waits for that special day.

Wishing you the happiest of days, and many more blogoversaries yet to come.

Love, hugs and headbonks,

Moosey, Gracie and Zoe, and Mom Tracey and Dad Kevin
