That’s right! It’s our Blogoversary! For those of you not familiar with how our blog began, here’s the story. The mom always wanted a website where she could post cute pictures and tell funny stories about us. So the dad-guy had this blog set up for her as a surprise Christmas gift. That was 9 years ago. It wasn’t long before us Island Cats realized we had a lot more to say than the mom did, and we hi-jacked the blog from her and made it ours. Oh, we let her say something every once and awhile. We’re not total blog-hogs!
Here we are…9 years and over 2100 posts and 93,000 comments later. Who knew we had so much to say? Here’s a question for you. Can you guess out of the 3 of us who has the most blog posts?
One of the best things about blogging is being part of such a wonderful, animal-loving community. We’ve made so many friends, both two and four-legged. Sadly, some friends are gone now…but we’ve made many new friends, too.
As we’ve done in previous years, we’re having our BLOGOVERSARY COMMENTATHON! For every comment made on this blog post through Saturday, December 31, we’ll donate 50 cents to an animal shelter, rescue group, animal charity or other worthy animal cause. And once again, YOU will help us decide who should get that donation. When you leave a comment, tell us which shelter, group, charity or worthy cause you want us to donate to. We’ll randomly select one 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 start commenting! 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.
We wanna thank all of you for visiting us and letting us entertain you these past 9 years. We hope we have put a smile on your face or even made you laugh out loud. But most of all we wanna thank you for your friendship. We ♥ you all!
