It's our first blogoversary!

Well, it's my first blogoversary to be correct as my whippersnapper sisfur Chilli wasn't living with us today a year ago. I started with posting on my mom's gardening blog.
Mom didn't sleep much that very first night with me, forgive her bad looks.
The gardening blogs mom visited lead her to discover the world of cat blogging. The first cat blog she ever saw was Miss Peach's. We lurked around for some time until our friends at The Poupounette discovered us and we slowly started to comment. Soon we had a little group of friends that visited and mom let me use a language everyone could understand. Mom realised that I was taking over her blog and thought about renaming it.
Okay, maybe she always looks like this.
When she asked the other type of human what he thought of the name "Garden with a Cat" he grinned and answered that "Cat with a Garden" would be more appropiate. He was right!From this it was only a small step to my own bloggie! Gandalf and Grayson were the only commentators on my first post, but that day they introduced me to the CB and I met all you wonderful cats, woofies and people out there. Probably the most important event was when Jan from Jan's Funny Farm introduced me to Momo. In November Momo, Fin, Miss Kitty and I visited our homeland, Norway. These floofy Ladycats have taken me on as LSIF (Little Sister In Floof) immediately and I learned so much of them. When I returned home little Chilli had arrived. We had quite the time getting used to each other.And the rest is history as you know it...
Since then so much happenend and so much has changed. We won many new friends, but lost some old friends too. We snorted with laughter and shed tears. This year it was all firsts: first half-birthday, first birthday, first gotcha day, the first blogoversary. I think I'm speaking for my sisfur too when I say that we hope to get to a second round of everything. And maybe a third? And it's hopefully together with you. Kiss, kiss, kiss.

Oh my! One whole year! Happy first blogoversary. We just love you girls and your garden and your adventures. Bennette and Cecilia send extra special silky and slender purrs and Jonesie is secretly jealous she is not a sister in floof (don't tell her I said that!).

Here's to many more years of happy blogging. Maybe you'll let your mom have a blog of her own in the future?

Happy Blogoversary! (sorry we're a bit late...Meowmy was away from home almost all day yesterday!) It was delightful to read how you got started blogging, and the pictures are so sweet of a young Siena...we especially love the nose squishing picture! It's hard to believe you've only been blogging for a year, Siena, because you are so professional...and of course you've got a great assistant in your Mom with her camera and in your sisfur Chilli. Here's to many more years of happy blogging!
