Meezer Monday Announcement!

It's Meezer Monday and I have a HUGE announcement to make!
This is our One Hundred & Oneth post!

May Ling, shouting the news!
Yup, it's true!
And it's all because of this guy...

There is (of course) a story behind our blog.
About two years ago, Mommy (and us!) discovered Skeezix's blog when she Googled "kitten diaries", and found the Cat Blogosphere shortly in about ten minutes.
We were all enthralled.
We read, and read, and read, and a great once and a while, we'd comment.

Grayce, contemplating a reply.
We got to know all of you, and even though we were just lurkers, we were DAILY lurkers.
We were interested in all of your lives, your ups & downs.
Reading your blogs made us happy.
CC, Contemplating all our friends.
And then, something terrible happened.
Felix hurt himself, badly. He tore up his knee and his patella luxated.
Mommy and Daddy and all of us were worried he might not heal right, or worse yet, he'd be in pain for the rest of his life.
But we had a resource...Maggie May from The Creek Cats! Her patella had luxated too!
The Baby, with a great idea!

So Mommy emailed Maggie May's Mom and asked her for advice. And Maggie May's Mom wrote back within a few minutes! And then Mommy emailed a picture of Felix, and Maggie May featured him on her blog and asked for the Cat Blogosphere to purr for him. And TONS of kitties did!
Johnny, purring for Felix's knee to get better.

Maggie May's Mom also said that OUR Mommy should start a blog.
That was all it took.
Kona is amazed!
We sat Mommy down and said: "We wanna blog!"
Maui, laying down the Paw.

And what We want, We get!
Rupert asks if YOU can resist this face?

So Mommy DID it! She figured out how to blog! Boy, she was afraid it would be a flop, or she would mess it up, or...well, you know how People fret.
Salem, practising non-fretting.

And we discovered we LOVE blogging! One of the things we enjoy the most is reading and writing comments.Sweet Pea, thinking of a witty remark!

And we LOVE all the friends we've made. Y'all have made us feel so welcome!
And given Mommy a fun creative outlet. (She needs to be kept busy.)
Scouty thinks Mommy is a Crazy Cat Lady.
Best of all, Felix's knee healed and he's back to his crazy antics and everyday crankiness.
So Kitties, here's to the next One Hundred (and more) posts!
XX MomKat Trish, May Ling, and The Lounge Kats

  14. Mum had been a lurker when she had Emma who was 19 years old and didn't do anything but much eat and sleep. When she went to the bridge mum took us both in as rescue cats and we started to blog with some good help by Eric and Flynn's mum. We love it too. We are glad we found your blog as you do such interesting things. Congrats on your 101st post.

  41. Concatulations on your 101st!

    The Baby is still my heart-throb, though Salem's juicy little legs & tum-tum look good enough to eat!

    I'm sure Scouty would never think such mean thoughts about your Human, though. (Unless the thoughts included stew pots), which by the way, **I** am fretting about now.

  42. Woohoo! Concatulations on 101!
    We are so glad your Mom discovered blogging because otherwise we wouldn't have you as our friends. We love reading about what you are all up to. Winston x

  43. What a great story! We are friends with the Creek Cats, too. We love your blog and are so glad that you talked your mom into blogging so we can come visit you!
