Happy 5th Blogoversary to Us!

photo (2)

That’s right!  We’ve been blogging 5 whole years now!  Who woulda thunk it?  The best thing we ever did was hi-jack the blog from our mom and made it our own!!

We’ve  sure had a lot of fun these past 5 years sharing our stories and pictures, and being part of the Cat Blogosphere.   We’ve made so many furiends with other blogging cats…and woofies and bunnies and fishies, too…from all over the world!!

To celebrate, the mom says we can have a commentathon again (we’re making this a Blogoversary tradition).   For every comment left on this post, the 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, this year we’re gonna do it a little differently.  When you leave a comment, tell us which shelter, group or other animal charity you want us to donate to.  We’ll randomly select a winner from all your suggestions.  If a shelter or group is mentioned more than once, it will be entered as many times as it’s mentioned.

So go ahead and comment away!  Everybuddy is eligible to leave a comment.  Don’t forget to let us know who should get the donation, too!  We’ll announce the results on New Year’s Day.

Thanks for all your visits and comments…and for being our furiends.   We ♥ you all!!
