One Thousand (1000) Posts!


Would you believe that I've posted 1000 straight posts since starting the CB almost 3 years ago?  My mom had hurt her back and was facing foot surgery when one of her doctors told her about the CB.  He is the dad of Jasper McKittencat and thought mom would enjoy it.  So, right before her foot surgery she put up my first post to introduce me to the CB and the world of blogging began.  My first post didn't include any pictures, but the second day, I exposed my floofy belly:


It wasn't long before I met Ann of Zoolatry! What a jewel she is!  The very first picture she sent me was of me lying on top of my namesake:  Pralines.  Thanks to Ann, I've had some beautiful headers, blog design, and been able to participate in a lot of the CB events!


I must tell you that my mom is a little anal (obsessive/compulsive) about stuff and once she started helping me with the CB, she was determined that I would have something posted everyday.  She's set up a post when she was on vacation, working out of town, and even recuperating from several surgeries.  I don't always get to visit as much as I would like, but I hope each of you enjoy spending a little bit of time with this Southern Diva Ladycat!

In honor of my 1000th post, I'm going to have a give away and let some lucky kitty win one of our "Nude Cats of the CB" calendars that we put together after Milo and Alfie came up with the idea for a contest from a challenge from the Cat Realm as part of their "last dare".  Numerous kitties submitted entries which can be found here.  We took it one step further and held the voting to select one entry for each month and put together the calendar.  We promised to donate $1 for each calendar sold to needy kitties and we've been able to do that.  Just comment below and we'll use a random number generator to select the kitty that wins a copy of the calendar.


Thank you so much for all of your love, purrs and support over the past years!

Mom Paula:  Praline didn't eat as well yesterday.  Please keep those purrs coming.
