I don't wanna wear this hat

Hey guys! HAPPY NEW YEAR! Yep, we say So long, 2016…don’t let the door hit you…and Hello, 2017.

And welcome to my first selfie of the New Year! The mom really wanted me to wear this hat for my selfie today. But y’know…I wasn’t feeling it, guys.

This is my half-hearted attempt at wearing this hat

So here’s my half-hearted attempt at wearing it. Hey, I don’t look that bad! Whaddaya think?

And now I get to announce the results of our Blogoversary commentathon! There were 86 comments through the end of last night. At 50 cents a comment, that’s a total of $43. But I asked the mom to kick in a few extra bucks and make it an even $50 and she said okay. Thanks, mom!

You all mentioned a lot of great animal shelters, rescues, charities and other worthy causes to get the donation. We wish we could help them all.  But the one that was randomly chosen is…All About Animals Rescue…nominated by Eastside Cats! Yay!

Oh yeah…I bet you’re all wondering who has the most blog posts out of the 3 of us. Well, it’s NOT me…but I plan to fix that. Many of you guessed correctly…it’s none other than Wally with a total of 498 posts. But I wasn’t far behind…a very close second at 494…and Zoey pulled up the rear with 428.

Once again…thanks for coming by and celebrating our 9th Blogoversary and pawticipating in our commentathon. We really appreciate all the nice things you said about us and our blog. We look forward to having even more fun in 2017! We purr that the New Year brings all of you lots of happiness, good health and much prosperity!
