Happy 4th Blogaversary to us!!!

who would have thought.....

Mom was doing some math and when she started this, it was 6 of us....she thought she started before Ivy and Spud joined the family, but nope.

The only addition to the family has been the orange monster:

We have been very lucky that we haven't had any permanent residents here run off for the Bridge. We are all pretty healthy (even Ivy the watermelon). Maestro will be 19 years old next month, so mom knows she is probably on borrowed time, but she is doing her best to ignore it.  MOL

When we started, we were letting mom do the talking. Until we discovered that, along with her lack of technical skills, she isn't all that interesting sometimes (sorry mom). So, we took over and she gets to type. Now, we let her get on and talk sometimes, but let's be honest....this is a cat blog!!

We thought we would share some numbers with you that you might find interesting:
Fostering: we have been fostering for 7 years. In that time, we have had a total of 180 come through the house - 168 kittens and 12 momma cats. There have been some other "rescues" in there but these are official foster numbers.

Pageviews: total 94,790, last month 4,618 (though we wonder how sometimes we get more comments than pageviews...we think it might be a reader thing, but again, how would mom know?)

Entry Pageviews (we thought this was interesting)

     United States - 651
     Canada - 83
     Latvia - 76
     Germany - 28
     Ukraine - 20
     France - 12
     United Kingdom - 12
     Russia - 11
     Netherlands - 4
     Panama - 4

Our first foster family on the blog was Aida and her kittens, Daisy, Minnie and Mouse.  We rescued them from the humane society where they were not looking at a good outcome.


So, there you have it. Feel free to stop by and help us party.  Oh - and you may notice the layout changed a little. Mom had notice that some blogs had the ability to "reply" to comments. She figured out how to change our set up so replies to comments can now be posted.

And.....we are going to pick a comment at random and send YOU a present for helping us celebrate. Because without you, we would just be talking to ourselves. MOL

  3. Woohoo, happy 4th Blogoversary! We certainly wish you many more to come. We always read, even if the human doesn't always comment these days. :-)

    P.S. Our human's dad's parents were from Latvia, so we think that stat is pretty cool.

  33. We are so bummed that we missed your 4th blogoversary. Concatulations. All your statistics are so interesting. Mom could not believe the number of kitties you have fostered. Your are an amazing and generous person. God Bless you. Now, the reason we missed your pawesome day. Our humans were on the road again on Saturday and Sunday. That's right AGAIN. And that is after being gone last weekend as well. She takes all the electronics with her and all we can do is sit her and twiddle our paws. HAPPY BELATED 4TH BLOGOVERSAY! Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
