Happy Blogoversary

We can hardly believe it - but Mom has been blogging here at the H.C. for SIX YEARS!!

Six years ago today Mom figured out Blogger and put up our first post... and no one came. Mom put up a few more post and realized the first important question in blogging... If a blog posts in cyberspace, and no one reads it, does it really count?

The answer is yes, because eventually someone did come. They found a few friends and the new friends told a few other friends. Some of those friends told her about the Cat Blogospere and that brought us a lot more friends.

Back then she posted with the "One Who Came Before" the Amazing Grannycat Fin. Mom and Finny brought some laughs and some lovely pictures. They were full of ideas, but even then, if questioned, Mom would never have dreamed she'd be posting SIX YEARS LATER!

Mom's considered packing it in a few times, but it is the kindness and support of all of you that she keeps on going (and of course the darling antics of two handsome and fun mancats).

So many of you pulled her through the darkest days when Finny left this world. You shared in her joy as we joined the family. You've laughed, squealed, and chortled right along with us. For those of you with blogs of your own, we've shared in your lives too.


You may remember we ran a special promotion on our book earlier this month. We want to share the proceeds with kitties in need. If you have an awesome kitty charity you would like us to give a donation to, leave the name in the comments and we'll pick a winning name.

Because it feels so nice to give back, we have an idea! If you support a kitty charity, we'd love to find a way to help in the future. We can pick a period of time and any sales during that time go to the charity or we offer a few copies of the book to auction off. If we can help, let us know, and we'll see what we can figure out.

Who knows what the next year will bring? Whatever it is, it's nice to know you're out there sharing it with us. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for your support and love!

    I do know an awesome kitty charity, it's Winnie's Wish with the blog Daily Dose. We just adopted two more kitties from them, Leo's sisters!
    We think it's just wonderful that you want to help out other kitties, you rock!

  10. Happy Blogoversary!!!!!!! Love the idea about the charities. There are so many in need of help. An animal shelter probably isn't what you have in mind and we understand that. But the Jackson County (MS) Animal Shelter could really use some help. Our local government is not very animal friendly. http://www.sunherald.com/2014/05/27/5604998/jackson-county-nonprofit-hosts.html

    I am glad you kept going after dear Finny passed on. I know how hard it must have been for you. I also was so close to stopping when Eric left, but like you, it was the support of so many friends that kept us going.
    Here's to many more happy blogging years!

  16. Happy Anniversary! We too are so glad that you kept on going. Now I realize blogging contains elements of many happy occasions but solemn and sad ones as well. As life does. So we cherish the community of care and compassion that is here for all of us. So so glad you are sharing you two handsome boys with us! We miss Finny too.
