Our 10th Blogoversary!

The beginning...



My first post on 01.14.10

The first post of Mommy Cat and Daddy Cat together on Valentine's Day, 2010



One of the photos of the kitties in my life at that time from our 1st Blogoversary post on 01.14.11.

Bottom, L to R: Daddy Cat, Mommy Cat, Tom*

*Tom was a friendly neighborhood cat that befriended Mommy Cat and Daddy Cat after their son, Jax, disappeared; I believe he filled a void for them at that time...They hung out together for weeks and he did not have a collar, so I welcomed him and had him fixed, got his shots and kept flea meds on him...I eventually realized he was someone else's outdoor cat and we regrettably had to leave him when we moved in October 2010.


Jacqueline's Cat House started out with my 5 babies and Tom, but after losing Daddy Cat in 2016 and Mommy Cat and Calle this past year, I've decided to stop posting everyday...Today I am sharing our beginning but while the blog is changing, it is not the end=I plan to post regularly, probably on Thursdays, and will continue to add our blog link on the CB at those times...It's hard to believe but I have published photos of my babies everyday for 10 years=that's 3,654 posts!...What started as a whim quickly turned into a labor of love!...I am so blessed by the many friendships I have made through this blog over the years and I am grateful I've been able to share these sweet, precious souls with you all along the way.....I thank you all sincerely for the friendships, the kind words, and for the love you have shown my babies over the last 10 years...Wishing everyone the best as we start a new journey in this new decade!

Jacqueline, thanks for sharing all the photos and stories about your sweet babies. We do understand what you are doing after 10 years, just retiring and stepping back a bit.

Happy blogoversary! You have done an amazing job with posting every day for all this time. You definitely have earned the right to slow down.

Happy Blogaversary, all three of you and all of the Angels. I have always loved this gentle blog and beloved babies. I m grateful you are not quitting. I hope to see you each time.

Happy Blogoversary! 10 years is an amazing achievement! We certainly understand about posting less (or in our case, letting the cat blog fall by the way side altogether). Life changes, takes us in different directions. Peace.

Happy Blogoversary for 10 years. Blogging every day for 10 years was a great achievement and we have enjoyed your babies every day along the way. We get to know all the babies and when they are gone it is sad for us too. Your blog has been amazing and you should be proud of yourself. I know I will check in on Thursdays to see what is new. I know this is hard for you to do but we will see you on Thursdays of every week. Know that we love you and your babies and we only wish the best for all of you. We will keep in touch

Happy blogoversary! It is supposed to be fun and not a chore, so do what you want when you feel comfortable doing so.. some times it will be more sometimes it will be less and that is okay.

We don't visit often but we wanted to congratulate you o your 10th Blogoversary! It is quite an achievement, especially now that so many fewer people blog. As the years go by, there is always sadness. We have also lost two precious friends this past year. But it is good to go on and look forward, to the smiles that lie ahead.

Purrs,
Tama and Genji 9and everyone else at The Poupounette)
