Happy one year blogiversary!

We can’t believe it, but it’s been one year since this blog began!

It started when I (Ellie) wanted to comment on one of Mr Bowie’s blog posts on Hands On Bowie. (Mr Bowie is a very impressive cat, and I hope you check out his wonderful blog!) My cat, Howling Mad Cat, had just turned 21 years old, and so we debuted him on March 3, 2013.

Howling Mad Cat lived to be 21 and 1/2 years old, and sadly crossed the rainbow bridge on October 24, 2013.



Although my husband wanted to wait until New Year’s to get a new pet, he couldn’t live without a cat, and we had two new kittens within one week. Enter Bo and Ko, whom you have so graciously welcomed into your lives!

Thank you so much for following us. We really appreciate it!

Quote of the Day

The Owl and the Pussy-Cat (Edwin Lear)

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
“O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!”

Pussy said to the Owl, “You elegant fowl!
How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
But what shall we do for a ring?”
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
To the land where the Bong-Tree grows
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
With a ring at the end of his nose,
His nose,
His nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.

“Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
Your ring?” Said the Piggy, “I will.”
So they took it away, and were married next day
By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon,
The moon,
The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.

  1. Happy Bloggaversary. I love the Pussies, poems and quotes. I LOVE the Owl and Pussy Cat poem!

    I have been following your blog since you started. When I realized Howling Mad’s great age, I knew he would not be around for a long time but I enjoyed my virtual time with him and was very sad when he went over the Rainbow Bridge. I think it was a great idea to team up with Bobo and Kobi. They always make me smile. 🙂

  2. Concatulations on the one-year milestone. It is such a great feeling to reach that point. Hope you’ll continue to keep posting so we can continue to watch Bo and Ko grow up. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  3. Congrats! Happy Blogaversary, my dear friends. Bowie says “Meow!” We love hanging around this beautiful blog. We still miss HMC a lot. Thanks for your kind words, Ellie. Much appreciated.

  4. Congratulations on the year. I was sad when HMC left. But I’m glad Bo and Kin are happy with you now. I’ve checked out Mr. Bowie (and following now) he is gorgeous! Wishing the best for the coming year!

  5. CONCATULATIONS on your one year blogaversary! I remember when I first met Howling Mad Cat…….I was in awe of his considerable age and enjoyed keeping track of him for his remaining months……now you have two new housemates and we’re happy about that! Enjoy many more years of blogging and life together!!

    Hugs, sammy

  6. Happy Blogoversary! HMC and my Natasha were about the same age, which is how I found your blog. I bet they’re pals on Rainbow Bridge. Love seeing Bo and Ko enjoying their furrever home!

    • So sad to lose our old friends, but the new ones are really filling our lives! I wish we could get a video long enough to show you their antics! Instead I’ll just have to tell you that life in our house is like a Calvin and Hobbes cartoon! Ellie

We look forward to your comments and meows!
