11th Blogiversary

Its our 11TH BLOGIVERSARY today.  Well, maybe.  TBT says the very first post on Aug 25, 2006 dint quite post right, but did get posted Aug 26th but with the 25th date on it.  So this year we are celebrating today.

HERE is the 1st post... 

We decided that we would show the earliest picture TBT had of each of us...

So we have an early picture of Skeeter.  That remote is only 6" long... 
And LC on one of her first days...  She was a skinny kitty then.

And of us...  Ayla as a kitten...
Iza was not so happy about being here at first. She hid unner the bed fer a few days.  This was her 3rd house in about 6 months (born in one, bought as a Queen by another, then here).  She was probably wondering if this one was her real home.  Well, yes, it is.

Marley was right out there though...
He came right out and went to work calming the house.  Some cats know their purpose in life, and Marley is one of them.  When there is a hiss between Ayla an Iza, Marley moves right in between them to keep the peace.  And if the doorbell rings, Marley moves right to the top of the stairs and growls.  Peacekeeper and guardian both.

It is hard to believe it has been 11 years...


  1. Wow, happy blogoversary! My human remembers when Marley came home, but that's as far back as she (and Sparkle) go with your blog.

    How funny that Marley growls at the doorbell! So does Leo, even if it's a doorbell on TV! UPS and FEDEX guys get growls too, but substitute mailmen get the hiss of death! MOL (the regular mailman gets nothing)


We're always glad to hear from our friends...
