It's HERE!


I DID IT!
This is my 1000th post.  How about that!  I started posting on Febrewary 26, 2006.  Six years ago!
So many things have happened along the way.  Times have certainly changed!
To think I used to call efurryone puddies.  Oh, my. Kitties, I am so embarassed about that one.
In the beginning we didn't have a camera, and you all waited very patiently.  Actually, one of you sent me a used camera.  Mom wasn't very good with it, of course.  But at least you sorta saw what I looked like.
And all the friends we made who helped us when things were tuff.  You'll never know how much your kindness meant to our very survival!  Mama at times was scared to death, and I hated to see her that way.
But all of that has passed.  We have tried to pass on the kindness as much as we can. 
We live in a new place which is 1000 times better than that old one. After two stressful jobs (one, yes, she loved) I no longer have to send her off every morning. She's much better because of that.  But that isn't to say there hasn't been some more scary times (I'm thinking of when her heart was attacked and all those frustrations with health insurants). And now  mom is still counting every cent we have. Which means, probably, no camera for a while.  No hamm pizzas. No new blankies (as if I ever needed more of those!). Being behind in bills. No dentist for mom.  But I hear that that is what a lot of you go through during these silly times.
But that doesn't mean I won't be holding an all day reception, today. 
And kitties (and woofie friends) that doesn't mean there won't be lots of foods and blankies around.  We gots niptinis, kittymilk, hamm, turkey, shrimpies, kitty treats and woofie treats, tuna, salmon (one of my favs), roast beast, wonderful woofie cookies (I hear they are amazing), chicken, and oh, my, lots of other stuff.  We have mousies and feavers and balls to play with.  And lots of blankies for fur piles!
I am so sorry we don't have any sunpuddles today.  We woke up to no color.  Totally white.  Fog like you kitties in the UK get (mom remembers)! But it is nice in here. And I am sorry I don't have animal tv like some of you, but even if I did, you could'nt watch today!
So come on by.
Oh, and before I forget to say, there will be a memorial set up in my room for all the kitties and woofies that have gone over the bridge, and you can say your purrayers for the ones that are currently ill. Anyone who wants to get together and think good thoughts for those in need, you are welcome, too.
Thank you so much for being here. If mom had a phone to take your pictures, she would, but our phone doesn't work that way. But you can put your pawmark on my guest book!
Oh, and thank Zoolatry for our beautiful picture today! Ann, we adore you.
love and smooches,
brandi
