It’s our 4th Blogoversary!

Wow!  Little did we know that when our dad-guy set up this blog for our mom as a Christmas gift 4 years ago, we’d still be blogging today!  The best thing we ever did was hi-jack the blog from our mom and made it our own!!

Now here we are…four years and over 975 posts and close to 37,000 comments later!!  We’ve  sure had a lot of fun these past 4 years sharing our stories and pictures, and being part of the Cat Blogosphere.   We’ve made so many furiends with other blogging cats…and some woofies, too…from all over the world!!

To celebrate our blogoversary, we’re gonna hold a commentathon.  Here’s how it will work.  For every comment left on this post today, our mom says she’ll donate 50 cents to an animal shelter, rescue group, or other animal charity or worthy cause.  Which one, you ask?  Well, that’s up to you.  You tell us who you’d like us to donate to, and the one mentioned the most will get our commentathon donation.

So go ahead and comment away!  Every kitty, woofie, bun, birdie and human is eligible to leave a comment.  Don’t forget to let us know who should get the donation, too!

Thanks for being our furiends.  We ♥ you all!!

  1. Happy 4th Blogoversary! We wish you many more wonderful blogging years ahead.

    The commentathon is wonderful…We don’t know who to narrow it down to, especially because we’re in Canada. We can think of Marg from Marg’s Pets, of course, because we know her income is tight and she has so many rescues. Chrystal, of course. Beth at Forever Home Cat Rescue (but that’s Canadian), and of course our own shelter, the Gananoque and District Humane Society. LOL. So we’re no help! We’re sure that the recipient(s) will be thrilled, though!

  2. Hey thats great …4 years and still ging. I for one am realy glad that you started blogging because I met you and became friends and thas realy great. Now for my suggestion, well its hard as there are so many in need out there but I think at the momeent I would go for Marg’s pets too as she takes in so many without thought for herself and has had so much vet expense for her rescues..
    Happy Blogoversary….. Hugs GJ xx

  3. Wow, four years. Good for you. We sure have enjoyed your blog and hearing about the three kitties. Conga rats on all those posts. That is pretty exciting that two people already have nominated us as the rescue. We would like to put in the Brother Wolf rescue. It is in Ashville,N.C. and a wonderful place. Take care. We do love this blog.

  4. Happy 4th Blogoversary – we see you are nearing your 1000th post and we had to laugh at our Mum who says you’ve got more stamina that she has!!
    We would like to suggest that the commentathon money should go to Marg at Marg’s Pets as she takes in any animal that wanders into her life and takes care of them. She is very upset about having to let BB go to the Bridge it might help to put a smile back on her face too.
    Now go and get a nipitini or two and toast your Mom and Dad for all their hard work.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  5. Congratulations on your four years – an impressive achievement. I always enjoy reading about your adventures.. My charity of choice is Marg’s Pets. Well done on taking this initiative to help pets without homes like this.

  6. Congrats on the 4th blogoversary! And 975 posts, too! How do you count comments? We don’t know how to do that. But hey, 37,000 is a REALLY big number, so whatever it is, thats GREAT! Keep going, friends.

  7. Happy Blogoversary!!! Wow, 4 whole years. We think making a donation to Margs Pets would be wonderful. If you want it to be a tax deductible charity, then we would suggest the ASPCA.

  8. Aahh, memories! Zoey the outsider; Zoey in the basement … tentative introductions. A cat weathervane. Now we are three and we three are four! Congratulations!
    Maggy gives her vote to the wonderful Ms Marg and Zoey gives her vote to the loving Ms Marg (do we get two votes ~ please!).
    Happy New Year, friends.

  9. ConCatulations on 4 years of blogging!! We vote for Marg’s pets.

  15. Happy 4th Blogoversary! Your dad truly gave your mom a gift that keeps on giving. We’re not very acquainted with American rescue organisations but we know that a lot of our furriends were rescued – so we’ll just nominate the organisation that Cory and her momma Ellie came from: United Paws.
    We hope you had a wonderful Chrsitmas and wish you a great 2012!

  16. Happy Blogoversary! Not just an accomplishment, but accomplished so well. I want to vote for Marg’s Pets as well. Marg is definitely one of the most amazing people we have met on the nets.

  17. Wow 4 years. Congratulations – that’s lots of talking. I’d vote for Marg’s Pets also because she does amazing things with her rescues, works so hard for them, and income is tight. Thank you for your willingness to donate – that is very very kind of you.

  18. Congratulations on your 4th Blogoversary! So kind of you to donate ~ whichever cause it goes to will be wonderful ~ we would like to suggest Chrystal or Marg’s pets because they both do awesome rescue work.

  20. Congratulations from all of us Good Cats on your red-letter day! We hope you continue for a lot longer, too. Our human staff says that Tabby’s Place would be his choice, but we know he’s prejudiced, so wherever you donate is fine with us.

  21. ConCatulations on your 4th Blogoversary!! We so enjoy your Blog and thanks to your Mom & Dad for helping you get started 4 years ago!! We think Marg’s Pets would be a god choice!!

  22. Wow – 4 years is awesome!!!!! We love you guys!

    We would love to see Marg get some help.

  23. Well, congratulations! Blogging for four years is no small feat! Many bloggers seem to fade away, but you guys are still going strong.

    As I live in Canada, I’ll just be happy wherever you decide to donate the proceeds.

    Here’s to another four and many more after that!

  24. Congratulations! We are avid blog readers. Our human sez she doesn’t have time to write a blog and thinks there are plenty of critter blogs already…sigh. We hope you have lots of comments!

  25. Wow! Congratulations to you!!
    We sure are glad you two kept blogging.
    We would love to see Marg’s Pets win this contest.
    If we are reading right, all of us can put in a comment, so that is what we will do!
    Thanks for offering to help a fellow animal lover, whoever it will be.

  27. Happy Blogoversary, dear friends! We love you guys, and hope to celebrate many, many more blogoversaries with you. 🙂

    There are so many deserving rescues. We’ll go with what looks like the general (and excellent!) consensus, and say Chrystal or Marg’s Pets. Both are AWESOME, in our book!

  28. Oh happy 4th Bloggy Year kitties! We have so enjoyed reading of your antics over the years. You has brought many a smile to our faces.

    We agrees that either Chrystal’s or Marg’s should be choosed.

    We agree many other blogers, Marg’s pets is the great choice. Marg is so wonderful and we all love her!

  36. We are taking our option up and using our second vote too today please. This one will be for Margs Pets too.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  37. Audrey says, “Happy Blogoversary! (what is that?) Mom said you were donating to someones and I would like you to donate to my Foster Mom Chrystal because she is who I lived with until I came to my Forever Home as a member of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde. Especially because she is a private rescue. Thanks you!!

  38. Hey guys, happy 4th blogiversary, and many more!!

  39. Zaphoid says, “Happy 4th Blogoversary! I would like you to donate to Audrey’s Foster Mom Chrystal because is a private rescue. Audrey has been a very good addition to the Horde even if she is beginning to be hard for me to tell apart from Star.

  40. I hope I’m not too late! Concats on your 4th Blogoversary–that’s totally pawsome!

    We vote for Marg also!

  41. Happy Blogoversary. We love Best Friends and of course are local shelter, but probably no one else will mentin them.

  42. Star says, “Happy 4th Blogoversary! I would like you to donate to Audrey’s Foster Mom Chrystal because that is where Audrey came from. She is my twin sister from another mother. I told mom that she needed to be with us from the minute I saw her picture but it took some time for mom & dad to be convinced. Partly because there were already four of us in the Horde. But, of course, Audrey is a Black Cat and we are the best!!

  43. Concatulations on your 4th Blogoversary!
    Me must say that me was reading your blog for about a year before me started mine.

  44. Knives says, “Happy 4th Blogoversary! (why do I have to say that?!… oh all right… but I’d better be getting greenies for this!) I would like you to donate to Audrey’s Foster Mom Chrystal even if she is a stinky ole sister who is always getting in my way.

  45. Happy Blogoversary my dear furriends! We just love you all so much and treasure our furriendship.

    Of course we have to mention United Paws of Tillamook because they saved me and my momma from being eaten by coyotes ::shudder:: and they continue to help so many kitties.

  46. HAPPY 4th Blogoversary !!!
    Very nice of your mom to give 50 cents for each comment to needing animals 🙂

  47. What an awesome commenthon. I would say Tabby’s Place just because my human doesn’t have as much to donate to them this year as she usually does.

  48. Happy 4th Blogoversary! We’re so glad your dad set up the blog so we could all meet you!

    It’s wonderful you are donating to celebrate your day too! Our mommy was getting ready to donate to Tabby’s Place and realized it’ll be less this year so like Sparkle, we’ll say them. But we agree that Marg is a good choice too.

  49. Happy blogoversary guys! Here’s to many many more 🙂

  50. Happy 4th Blogoversary! It’s fun to know you guys!

  51. Happy 4th Blogoversary!

  52. Hello! Happy anniversary! It’s good of you to donate to a worthy cause. I’d mention the rescue group with whom I volunteer, the Lethbridge PAW Society, of Lethbridge, Alberta, but I suspect I’d be the only one who talks about it. But whoever gets it, it will be for a good purpose. Have a wonderful New Year!

  53. Happy Blogoversary!
    How great to celebrate it by doing a commentathon! We would like to nominate Marg as well…

  54. Concats on the blogoversary! Wow…4 years is amazing. We are happy to nominate Chrystal but will be happy if Marg and her gang win too.
    Snuggles and purrs,
    Taz, Runt, and Charles in Illinois

  55. Happy Blogoversary! What a nice thing to do to celebrate. We think it would be a nice gift for Marg.

  56. Happy 4th Blogoversary kitties! We remember seeing your blog for the first time over a year ago and thinking “wow, theese guys got it goin’ on over here!” It is great that you are doing a Comment-a-thon. We would also like to suggest Marg’s Pets please!

  57. Happy 4th blogaversary…Little did your Dad know 4 years ago he was creating a world wide blog with lots and lots of followers.
    Hugs Madi

  58. I was going to say Marg too before I saw all the comments :))) It’s a kind thought to do a donation x

    Happy blogoversary from all the CATachresis gang xox

  59. Happy Blogaversary! I hope you keep bloging for many years to come!!!!!!!!!

    p.s. please donate to the ASPCA

  60. Happy 4th Gotchaversary to you!
    We would like to nominate Marg too.

  61. WOW!!! Happy 4th Blogoversary!!!!!!!!
    We are really glad you decided to blog,because we got to meet you 🙂
    As for where to donate…rescue groups come to mind (Marg, Chrystal,Deb Taylor)
    Congrats to 4 years and we hope, many more!
    Purrs Tillie and Georgia,
    Tiger,Treasure and JJ

  62. Happy Blogoversary you all! So glad you have a blog because that is how we met and became good friends. Your daddie sure knew what he was doing when he set your blog up for you mom and you all knew the best when you took it over. Hoping for many more visits and adventures with you as teh years go by.
    I think that is so nice that your mom is donating $$$ for a worthy cause. I would like to suggest JFF Gang as there are many at their place and they are so good about helping get the word out when others are needing thoughts and purrs. If you don’t mind I am staying here for awhile as the folks are pretty much ignoring me, yep, you read right. Terrible isn’t it?! But with the holidays and all I am not able to visit much. Though I will give the mom credit for letting me stop by today. Love to all at your place and wishing you a very Happy New year filled with blessings and peace.

  63. Happy 4th blogoversary ! What a good idea, I hope I’m not too late to post !
    Sorry, mY english is not very good, but I follow your blog with a real pleasure ! Have a nice New Year’s Eve !

  64. OH that is so pawsome!
    4 years is a BIG accomplishment, especially since none of you have thumbs. 🙂

    That is so great about the commentathon.
    May we make a suggestion?
    It seems like there is a big consensus between Chrystal and Marg, how about splitting the total between the two? Both of these ladies do such amazing work. Just an idea I don’t know if someone before me suggested it or not but I thought I would throw it out there.

    Happy Blogoversary to the best Island cats around!


    Happy Blogoversary and Merry Christmas!

  66. Congrats! We just love you guys!! I definitely put in a vote for Marg! We’re so glad you guys are our friends!

  67. Miss Emily here, and I vote for Marg’s Pets!

  68. Happy blogoversary! What about Kitten Associates (aka Covered In Cat Hair), they are a good cause.

  69. Maggie Mae here and I vote for Marg’s bunch of critters, too!

  70. Hi, Noah here..
    Happy 4th Blogoversary to you!
    I will put in Kitten Associates, too. Robin does a lot of good work!

  71. We are happy you joined the fun too. Four years gone and more to come.

  72. CONCATULATIONS! That’s alot of blogging. We vote fur Marg’s Pets. She’s been haffin a hard time lately, and does lots of good things fur animals.

  73. love your blog!

  74. Happy Blogoversary guys! We want to mention Crash’s Landing in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Not only do they find homes for lots of kitties, they accept “less adoptable” ones and find homes for them, too. Personally, we don’t think any kitty is LA, but some folks do.

  75. Wow, congrats on 4 years! Guess what? I started my small world blog 4 years ago on Jan 1! We have all been blogging a long time, and we are so happy to have you guys as furriends!

  76. Happy Blogaversary!!!! mommy is IMPRESSED.

  77. Its great to see the brains behind the operation! Tee, hee. We vote for Marg too. She is so sweet and she has so many adoptees. Her season can’t have been good. She lost Peepers the goat and BB the kitty – both were best buds for hers.

  78. We meant best buds of hers. That mom is such a bad typist. Most importantly, she meant to say Concats on your milestone! That is so impressive. Instead she hit the send button by mistake. We don’t think she’ll make it 4 years, cause we’ll find someone better to type. The ad will be posted this weekend.

  79. Congratulations and Happy Blogaversary! 😀

  80. Whoa, everybody hang onto your bloghats!! Concats on your Blogoversary! It’s been our pleasure to know you, too!

    Tom, Mittens & Mom Julie

  81. Happiest of Blogoversaries to you Island Cats! We have loved coming by here since they day we met you. We love it when you come by our place too. Hope you have lots more blogoversaries to come!


    Meg & Fin

  82. Happy Blogoversary!

  83. Congratulations on your 4 year anniversary. That’s a lot of paw strokes and pictures!

    I agree with so many of the others that Chrystal or Marg would be worthy recipients, as they both have had some hard times and sadness recently and it would be nice for them to receive some good news.

  84. happy blogoversary! i’ve enjoyed reading your blog since i found it less than a year ago and i hope to continue reading it for years to come! 🙂

  85. Happy 4th Blogoversary to our wonderful island friends! We absolutely love your blog, pictures and stories! We nominate Marg! Many more years of blogging!


    I don’t care who you donate to but am hoping you will make it to a place in Michigan 🙂

  87. Oh noes…. we were so busy getting ready for the New Year’s Eve Eve party that we didn’t get by to wish you a Happy Blogoversary. We are so glad you are here and that we have become friends. Here’s to many more blogoversaries to come.

    pawhugs, Max, Bugsy, Knuckles and HH

  88. I am sorry I missed the commentathon yesterday but I just wanted to say, again, Happy Blogoversary. Four years is great, and here’s to four more!

  89. Oh poop have I missed the commentathon? I wasn’t able to come online yesterday. Hopefully this isn’t cheating to put a comment on today!!!
    And BIG congratulations on your 4 Year Blogoversary! 🙂

  90. I missed it too!! (DRAT–my human!) Nonethless–HAPPY 4th BLOGOVERSARY!! I think you guys do a great job on the blog–and your dad-guy was smart to start it up for you!! I’m glad I’ve had a chance to meet y’all–PURRS and HUGS!!


  91. HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY!!!! Sorry we’re a day late, we’re still recovering from all of the Christmasing.

  92. Sorry we missed your FOUR years anniversary. Belated good wishes and hopes for four more years!

    Lizzie & 3 kitties
