Tommy: It's me again. In the midst of the madness of her return to us and the sitter trauma, we forgot to do a post to celebrate our SEVENTH BLOGOVARSARY! It was on Monday, June 29th, the day that #1 came home.
When this blog started, it was just me and Sen-Chan. His nickname was "Poupounet", hence the name of the blog. We put up two posts on that first day but they melded into one as we were novices at blogging. You can find these posts here.
My own first solo post, with the first flying ears picture, went up on June 30th, 2008. I wonder how many of you remember our first "commentators"? The very first was Dragonheart and Merlin, the great Sphynx pair who disappeared one day from the Blogospehere. Then there was Angus Mhor, the big poyldactyl tabby. Anyone know what happened to him? He was such a character!
Through the seven years that we have been blogging, we have made so many friends but also lost so many friends. So many wonderful kitties, woofies and people (not that many people also have horses...). We feel privileged to be part of this community.
I thought I would post a then and now pair of pics of me. The first one was taken on July 2, 2008:
And this one was taken on June 30, 2015!
Of course, our beloved Sen-Chan left us far too young, in early 2009, but here are a couple of pics of him:
Unlike a certain Houbibi, Sen-Chan was a very good boy and came back as soon as he was called, so he was allowed out! A life far too short but well-lived!
