Our 6th Blogoversary!

Wow, its our 6th blogoversary today.  It seems a little strange, since the blog is older than anny of US are.  TBT was around back then, of course, but it was all about Skeeter and LC then.  So we think we'll just turn it over to him...

THE BIG THING:  Hi, well, its been 6 years now and I'm amazed.  I never thought that, on the first week when I cautiously tried out a few posts, we would still be posting now.  I can barely recall the first few days posting.  I didn't know much about it, couldn't include pictures, etc.  Our first comment came from The Meezers (Sammy and Miles) after several days.

I've always thought it was a shame that this blogging thing didn't start back when Skeeter and LC were young, so that they would have had many many years of blogging.  But Skeeter was already 14 and LC was 13 when we began blogging.  Sadly, they had to leave before the blog got very old...





Fortunately, Ayla was a transition cat.  She is the only cat here who remembers both Skeeter and LC, and they both passed on some of the family history to her.  Iza knew LC, and Marley never met either.

So, the blog has changed its cast of characters over the years.  Friends have come and gone.  New friends have shown up.  Blogging features have changed (some good some bad).  Blogging ideas have been added over the years; I wonder who through the first birthday party complete with pictures of food and games, for example.

I hope (and expect) that the next year of blogging will be as much fun as the previous 6...

Sooo, see you all tomorrow to start year 7!

Happy Blogoversary! Wow: SIX years!

I was almost six when the Human decided she would stop being just an observer and start helping me to blog too. Max the Psychokitty was the kitty who inspired us, oh and William of Mass Destruction also! That was April of 2010 so you have a lot of years on us! We are glad we found you--specially YOU, Iza my darling! XOXOXO
