UNDER CONSTRUCTION!

Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

Happy Birthday to ME Comentathon!!

So today is both Veteran's Day and my birthday! First I want to take a second to remember all the veterans who have fought so hard to keep our country safe. I know a lot of you have family and friends in the military and please know that we really appreciate everything they do.

So as I have mentioned we are going to do a comentathon. For every comment we are going to donat 25 cents to The Santa Paws Drive! We think it is a great idea - here is the info from their site:

The SantaPawsDrive is a special fundraising event which has been set up to try to bring a little joy into the lives of animals who will be spending the holiday season in a shelter while they are waiting for their forever home.

We love the idea of helping out shelter animals!

So, be sure to comment - and tell your friends to stop by too! The more comments the more money for these kitties and puppies! And please be sure to stop by and visit the Santa Paws site - I have the link about and also in my sidebar.

So, for my birthday, Zoolatry made me some awesome pictures (I am sure you are not shocked that they are awesome - the ZH is totaly talented). I got them ahead of time, so they have still got Floyd in them - but I think they are a nice way to remember him today. I still remember my first birthday with him - I had a big fondue party and he was just loving the fun. That is also the first birthday I spent with Brad - although we didn't start dating until after that. I remember he was trying to impress me so he showed up early to help - since the kitchen was full he ended up cutting strawberries on the bathroom counter (the extremely clean bathroom of course). What a suck up he was!

Oh, I forgot to mention that I will not be doing the counting right away to allow there to be latecomers (I know that there are many timezones represented out there - we want everyone to have a chance - plus there are others who like me get behind in their visits - they should have a chance too). I am thinking that I will give it a week - everyone is usually caught up by then. I will let you know the total on 11/19.

Hi Amy,
What a grand way to celebrate all the firsts. Great pictures and I'm glad Floyd is in them. When we had our first kitty. I took pictures but not nearly enough plus there were no digital cameras. You can never have too many sweet pictures.

This is such a great idea, a commentathon! When I go to the pet stores around here (they all only do pet adoptions no sales from breeders) and I always want to take them all home with me and obviously can't, so its nice to see that they'll have lots of love at Christmas too!

Great kitty pictures as always and the Zoolatry ones are adorable.
Well, I need to get to bed. I'm playing catch up and my eyes are starting to get fuzzy.
Hugs to you and the kitties,
