Our 7th Blogoversary!!!

Meows from Mudpie!

Seven years ago today Mommy started our blog as a way to chronicle her reading life along with a little about her love of cats, but as we're known to do, the kitties took over.


Through Tara, then Truffles, and now little ol' me, our online friends have laughed and cried with us, and created a community of cat lovers that we cherish more every day. The outpouring of love Mommy received following the passing of Tara and Truffles meant more to her than she will ever be able to express, and the welcoming arms you all greeted me with when I arrived...how much luckier can a kitty get than to go from homeless to social media star???

Some stats that astound us: to date we've published over 2,500 blog posts and received nearly 1.5 million page views!!!

Pet blogging can be hard with way too much sorrow and loss, but in the end the good outweighs the bad. Even after 7 years we (well, Mommy...I haven't even been alive for 7 years!) look forward to sharing our lives with you each day, and if you don't mind maybe we'll stick around for awhile longer?

Niptinis for everyone are on the house!!!

Happy Blogoversary! I was thinking today, how fortunate I feel for having all of my blogging friends, and how the sharing of our passions for cats really aids our day-to-day mental and emotional health. Mudpie, I haven't known your blog for seven years, but I'm a devoted fan!
