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!!

Monday, August 1, 2011


I didn't get those pictures up like I planned. Part of it is that with the heat, even though they are inside, the cats just aren't super active when I am trying to take pictures. So I end up with a bunch of pictures just like the older ones, and part of it is that I ended up cleaning a bunch this weekend, so that took time up too.

This is going to be a busy week and month. Tomorrow is Virgil's third Gotcha Day (I almost forgot about it - thank goodness for calendar reminders!) then on 8/4 it is Bora Bora day with Gracie

Then, 8/7 is our 3rd Blogoversary,and 8/8 is World Cat Day - and check out who is the kitty on the badge - our very own Gus (thanks so much for picking him Ann - we feel so honored!)

Also this month are Gus and Stella's annual physical (their first really, since they are only a year old) and Trixie's Birthday (I think - I am planning to discuss it with her brother Leo's mom to see what she thinks too. When Chrystal wrote about them on 10/15 she said she thought they were around 7 weeks old, so that puts them born around 8/27/10) is at the end of the month - it is funny because I was looking for the date and saw all the pictures of Trixie and Leo and their sisters when they first got to Chrystals and reading the old stories about them. Trixie seemed to spend a lot of time with who I am pretty sure is Leo - he was the only solid gray in the group - the other I am just so glad they had Chrystal there to rescue them and show them that people can be loving and wonderful - that is why she is the wonderful girl we have now!

Oh, and the other fun thing is that our blogoversary is also our friends Milo and Alfie's blogoversary - they started their blog the exact same day (even same year) as we did - we think that is so cool!

Anyway, I am still hoping to post some pictures later but tomorrow I will have up Virgil's gotcha day post - which will have pictures of him as a baby! So I hope to see you all then!!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

We will be visiting a LOT, you have so many special days coming up and we would not dream of missing the celebrations!

Gus is the perfect choice for World Cat Day...what an honor!

If you lived here Brad could go biking with the group and you could be an honorary member of the White Dog Army and hang with us in the shade, watching birds, or reading, or taking a nap under the cottonwoods...and then of course, brunch!

Wow, busy month! I answered you about birthdays on my blog comments, then thought, duh, you already looked there, you might not look again! lol
So yes, I had the date wrong in my head, but if that's the right one, cool by me!
Oh, and yay for Gus being the poster boy!

Thanks so much for stopping by to see us today. I am sorry I have been so bad about visiting lately myself but I have been super busy too and then when I think of having to catch up on reading/commenting on the blogs I get super nervous trying to fit it all in!

We will try to stop by for all of your special days coming up!
