Our First Blogoversary
We are so happy! Today is our first blogoversary! Mom Paula started our very first post on July 12, 2011 to announce that she was bringing two new furchildren home. Mom Paula had helped Sweet Praline post for 3 years but stopped posting on her 3rd year anniversary in June 2011 after Sweet Praline left for the Bridge in April 2011. When Mom Paula decided she was going to bring two new furchildren home, she decided that a fresh start was needed and Sweet Purrfections was born. The pictures that were posted were of Momkitties Chloe and Zoey with their babies.
Our very first comment came from Chey from the Cat Post Intelligencer!
We thought we'd celebrate today by sharing all of our headers that were used on the blog the first year! The very talented Ann of Zoolatry designed all of our pictures and stayed with our "pink" theme throughout. Thank you so very much, Miss Ann. We couldn't do it without you! We love you!
Since we didn't know which kitten(s) were coming to live with Mom Paula, we had permission from Mom Terri from Crystalpurrs to use some of the kitties on her page. Here is our very first header.
A few days after our first post, Mom Paula went to Mt. Pleasant to let the kittens choose her. At that time, both of Chloe's kittens: Truffle and Beignet, chose Mom Paula. Ann graciously redesigned our header to include Angel Sweet Praline, Truffle and Beignet.
Unfortunately, one week before little Beignet was scheduled to come live with Mom Paula, he went to the Bridge from a VAS (vaccine associated sarcoma). Miss Ann once again designed a new header for us to include both Angel Sweet Praline and Angel Beignet.
Mom Paula decided about 5 weeks after losing Beignet to get a sister for Truffle. Brulee joined us in November 2011. Our talented Ann sent us a special holiday photo that included Truffle and Brulee (and Sweet Praline).
After the first of the year, Mom Paula wanted a fresh start for us since we were both living with her and appeared to be healthy, happy baby ladycats. Truffle accepted Brulee very well as a member of our family and the picture that Ann included in our new header for 2012 included the sweetest picture of Truffle giving Brulee a bath and the satisfied look on Brulee's face is priceless.
April was the one-year anniversary of Sweet Praline going to the Bridge. We were both getting older and had helped Mom Paula heal, so she wanted to celebrate the memory of Sweet Praline and the happiness of her new furchildren with a new header. Don't you just love the polka-dots?
Our last header during the first year of our blog was a beautiful graphic design by Ann with our Persian profiles.
We hope you've enjoyed this trip down memory lane with our headers. As many of you know, Mom Paula is a little OCD and she insists on posting for us everyday, so today is also 368 straight posts! We don't know how we got 368 when there are only 365 day in the year. Go figure! We hope to be blogging for many years to come. We know Facebook is out there along with many other way to communicate, but we really enjoy blogging. Thank you to all of you who have made our first year so successful.
