My First Post

I guess that's kind of obvious, uh? Oh well. So after weeks and weeks of lurking in other blogs and posting in the comment section of other blogs, always being sure to include my email address, I decided to take the plunge! I like to journal but I can be lazy about it so I thought it would be fun to keep a record of sorts here and talk with other bloggers while I do. I also read a lot and I noticed that many bloggers discuss the books they're reading, post reviews, and trade and giveaway books a little like an on-line book club but better! And, in case you didn't notice, although how could you not?! I have a few cats and I love them a lot! What better place to show them off and brag (or whine!} about their antics but here! No worries, although it appears as if I may be a crazy cat lady, I promise you I'm not! Really.
Oh yes, I am completely new to blogging so this is a work in progress and I expect to make several mistakes so please bear with me!


  1. You did it!! And it's a very nice blog at that. I'll be stopping by quite a lot! Best wishes.

  2. Congratulations on your first blog!

  3. There is a blogger by the name of Nan. She posted to me when Leo was put down, and she's a very very sweet woman.
    She's also an Artist of animals and nature. I posted your blog address to her, and now you to her, so you can meet up. Her cats are beautiful, as all cats are! :)
    Stop by and say "hi"

  4. congrats! and welcome! you'll find 99 percent of the community here are very friendly :)

    I love your furbabies! I have two myself, two wonderful furry boys that purr :)

  5. Amy,
    Congratualtions on starting a blog! Purple Flowers told me about you so I thought I'd stop by and say hello! How wonderful that you rescue and help cats. I enjoyed seeing the photos of your furry kids and look forward to seeing more and hearing of their adventures! My husband and I adore cats ( well, all animals for that matter). We share our home in Maine with 3 cats who often are portrayed in my art.

    Hope you stop by and visit Ellie May, Polly and Brody and the other furry and feathered friends we encounter over at my blog:

    one of my other blogs is:

    best of luck,
    Nan and =^..^=
