Wow some milestones shouldn't be missed and 100 posts is one of them. Way back in May when we started we were only going to do one post a week (imagine that!). We went to two and then suddenly Mommy became addicted to the hit counter and all bets were off. So I thought we would be hitting this milestone in the spring, but here it is!
We started the blog without any idea other cats blogged (imagine that again!). Mommy met Lisa at Lifeprints at a writer's conference and she encouraged Mommy, she told her that even she could do it. She finally figured it out and we were up and running - but with no one to share it with.
Psychokitty Max was the first blog we found. He was so nice and he added us to his blog roll, what a great cat he is (and a author too!). We started down his list and found Angus pretty fast, Daisy must have been right after, the Furry Bambinos and then Gandolf and Grayson.
When the Crews Views pointed out that we needed to head over to the Blogosphere, we checked it out. Eventually we got brave enough to post something on the Cat Blogosphere and then cats we didn't even know started dropping by, and we started dropping by too. We picked up some great friends Goldie and Shade (they gave me my first award), Mr Hendrix, Luxie, The Cats P and Victor and Nina. I picked up another regular with my dearest Whicky Wuudler (who was bloggless back then) and well, I can't name everyone can I? Okay just a few more Huffle Mawson, Grrreta, Parker, Sweet Praline and maybe just one more shout out to MoMo, Siena and Miss Kitty my SIFs.
The rest of my friends came later but believe me you mean no less to me! Whew, I'm spent. I think I need to take a couple of days off, till then have a great weekend! I'll be working on Post 101 and copying hyperlinks of everyone else. Love you all. We could have done it without you but what fun would that have been? None!
I remember how I felt when we reached 100 posts. Mom said she would try this for a little while, but now we are addicted! There are some really great kitties out there and one of them is you!ReplyDelete
When I started blogging, I had no idea that other kitties blogged too... which is why I have so many dog friends. But I love my kitty friends and that includes you Fin! Congratulations on the 100 milestone!ReplyDelete
Wow! 100 posts! Congratulations! I have just started - but I have added your blogspot to my list. Please add mine to yours. meoouuwww,ReplyDelete
Congratulations, Fin. 100 posts is quite a milestone.ReplyDelete
Congratulations dear Finny! One hundread posts is quite the achievement. Everycat is so happy that you are our friend, without you we wouldn't have made a blog at all. Perhaps you and your Mommy could share a large plate of fresh salmon as a celebration of today's importance?ReplyDelete
Congraulations, Fin. That is a real accomplishment and we are so happy you decided to blog.ReplyDelete
Love & Purrs,
KC & Missy Blue Eyes
Congratulations on your milestone, Fin! When we started Mom was just doing a personal journal and had no idea that anybody blogged, let alone cats! Bonnie and Victor found us first and we found the Cat Blogosphere! Since then Bonnie and too many more of our friends have left for the Bridge, but we have also found so many more blogging kitties. It is wonderful to be part of such a wonderful blogging family and community!ReplyDelete
Yippee!!! 100 posts is quite an acheivement and we have enjoyed them all!!! We are celebrating our blogaversary next week, the time does fly!!!ReplyDelete
You put your paws up, have something delish to eat and find a nice sunspot to recline in, you deserve it!!
Your mom should too, but no fighting over sunspots!!
Purrs, Goldie, Shade and Banshee
I think you may have just broken a record for the number of hyperlinks in one post. We're very thankful that your mom's hit counter addiction has brought us so many funny and insightful posts.ReplyDelete
Concats to you Fin... and here's to 100 more.ReplyDelete
(PS we enjoy your wit and wisdom, great writing...)
Great milestone, Fin! I am so furry glad I found you. Jan from Jan's funny farm led me to Momo and she told me about you. And shortly afterwards we all went to Norway, with the lovely Miss Kitty! My blogging career, ehem, started with my mom's gardening blog. She was doing it for quite some time when she found some kitty blogs. Then I arrived and sort of took over her blog. Not too long ago she created my own space and now I even have a little sister. It's a fast world! 100 post, phew, time to nap!ReplyDelete
Have a most lovely weekend. Siena
This is so cool! I think I'm now on post 84...getting close to 100 myself. I too had no idea there was a cat blogosphere or other kitties blogging. I just wanted to write about my family...Dana and the Real Cats were the first to find us and then followed by Gandalf and Grayson...who introduced us to everyone! Congratulations on your milestone!ReplyDelete
Congrats on your 100th post! We we're like you...starting blogging thinking we would only do it a couple of times a week...and never knew there were so many other kitty bloggers out there! We have made so many good furiends! We're still meeting more kitty bloggers every day!ReplyDelete
Here's to your next 100 posts, Fin! We hope to continue to read more about you every day!
Wally, Ernie & Zoey
A hundred posts is a good start -- time flies when you're having fun!ReplyDelete
Congratulations!!! We started out just like you and then found the Cat Blogosphere and then the rest is history as they say!ReplyDelete
We just dropped by to congratulate you but now we will go back to the party which will be in full swing all day long!!!
The Cat Realm
Concatulations on your 100th post, Fin, it is a wonderful milestone! We were the opposite of you ... we were looking at cat blogs a lot, but our Momma took her time to get us one of our own. Both you and us meezers are very, very lucky we have met so many wonderful furriends thru the CB, aren't we! Happy 100th, and have a furry wonderful weekend!ReplyDelete
Purrs and headbutts,
Sabrina, Sam and Simon

Ms. P and Cinza
Woohoo! Congratulations, Fin! That's a great milestone. I am glad you started blogging!ReplyDelete
That's a big milestone!!! I am so glad you started blogging, otherwise there would be no SIFs.ReplyDelete
Like you, I started blogging with no idea that cats actually blogged. No one visited for months except for a doggie or two. I was just talking out loud to no one in particular on all sorts of things on a rather irregular basis.
Then Karl 'discovered' me and put an introduction in the CB. All of a sudden I had more than 20 kitties coming over to say 'mieow'. Since then I have been enjoying the warm companionship of the blogging kitties and got to know some quite well.
Woohoo! Concatulations on 100...um, we can't beleeve yoo really thawt yoo were alone! Our mom was reading a couple of cat blogs, well, diaries really, way back 15 years ago but never thawt dat all of us kitties would get blogs and TAKE OVER! See, just shows how smart we felines really are.ReplyDelete
Happy 100 posts! We are still very new to the CB but we are so thankful we found everyone! :o)ReplyDelete
Congratulations on 100 posts! May your addiction not be cured and you post zillions more.ReplyDelete
Hello? Is this thing on?ReplyDelete
Hee hee! We're glad to be your friends, too Fin! There are so many cat blogs, but yours stands out (imagine that!).
Purrs and sandpaper kisses,
Nina (& Victor)
Well done on a hundred posts. We wish you thousands more. Smooches.ReplyDelete
ConCatulations on 100 posts!!!ReplyDelete
Sniffie and the Florida Furkids
When I started blogging, my mom was out on the road driving for a living and missing me somethin' awful. She googled around a bit and found Max and the Skeeter and LC. Ayla wasn't there yet. She read all the archives of Skeeter and LC's blog and decided I should start a blog, too! Thankfully, she came home soon after that and now she's my secretary! I really love this community and have made some wonderful friends!ReplyDelete
Congratulations, Fin! I'm so glad you're here!
Hi Fin, now it comes in handy to have a gardening mom: Valerian is Valeriana officinalis, we call it "Baldrian" in German. Humans can drink it as a tea and is has a soothing effect on them. All the contrary for cats! Then, what we think is reffered to as "nip" is Nepeta cataria (haha, notice CATaria!), also called catmint. The good thing is that mom has promised to try to grow both plants next year! If we get some out of the valerian we'll send you some, promised!ReplyDelete
Purrs, Siena & Chilli
Glad to know you Fin! Happy 100th post!ReplyDelete

I start my blog a couple years ago when there aren't so many kitty blogs and I get lonely and stop posting for almost a year, now I'm BACK and I will keep posting but I never catch up to YOU!
Keep up the good work.

We've been in the blogosphere for 4 years now (Dec. '04) - we started just visiting cats and leaving comments before we actually started our own blog several months later in July '05.
Even though we just met you, we are so happy to have found you!

Thanks for offering support for my upcoming surgery. It really means a lot to me to know that so many wonderful kitties and beans care about me. I appreciate your offer to chat with a human, I may just take you up on it.
