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!!

Trying to get updated!

Ok, so I am in the process of trying to get my non-post portions of my blog updated - and I need your help! If everyone could take a second and make sure I have you in my list of "Great Sites" - soon to be renamed "Our Bloggining Friends" (still in alphabetical order). If not please let me know in the comments. I already know I am missing quite a few but I wanted to confirm that I am not missing anyone and don't realize it.

I also have to post our Man Cats badges, and I actually have to get a training one for Barney. And I should probably change the header since it only has 4 cats on it - it was only up a short time when we got him so I wanted to leave it up a while longer since it is so nice.

Speaking of Barney, I am glad everyone liked the bowl pictures - that bowl was actually my grandfathers - when he passed away in 1996 (about a week after I got Floyd) I had just moved into my first apartment, and needed stuff. That was one of the things I took. I know it is weird but I just wanted to point out that it is a sentimental bowl (which, again, is weird but it is a really nice bowl and it is one of a couple that I have and use that are from his home - most of what I have from him is not really useable, it is more display).

I am hoping to get more pictures tonight but we are having the flooring guy out to give us an estimate so I don't know how long that will take. If you don't see anything you will know it took a while!

Barney in the bowl is just too precious! He knows he's cute! :)
I hope Floyd is feeling okay. You're a good kitty mom to notice a slight change in personality like that.
My Grandda was very special to me, so I understand the attachment.
I am so bad at blog maintenance. I bookmark all the blogs I visit, but I have not listed them all. It would take a long time!
Your header is sweet and I can't wait to see Barney added.
Well, dinner beckons. Stupid oven timer!
I hope your week is going well Amy.
Hugs and purrs to you and the "Kits"!

We'd love to be on your blog list - I put you on ours. (We use the "most recently updated" order because some of our friends don't blog very often!)

That is a nice story about the bowl - it makes the pictures even better, I think - if that's possible!

Oh good I'm over there. Barney did look darling in the bowl.

We know how hard it is to keep up our blog. Lots of luck! It took forever to add Kirby's picture!

being still new and shy to the cat blogging world.. Everyone I know is on your list.

It isn't weird about the bowl.. It is cool. My mom asked for the pancake warmer that her daddy used every Saturday when she was growing up for her birthday. So don't feel weird about it at all... Mom is the same way! *Mom's Dad is still around just fyi, didn't want to let anyone think it was other wise*

Hi Amy! I would love it if you would add my blog site to your sidebar. A Kitty Named Reese, which is http://akittynamereese.blogspot.com
Thanks, buddy!

Thank you for my birthday wishes! I so far have only one bad thing today - a bath! What was the mom lady thinking when she did that on my birthday???

I know that all that updating can take quite a bit of time.
