Jake and Bathsheba

Special Post


Hello, dear friends!

We have not blogged in such a LONG time! This is a very special post, and not just because it's our first one since June. If you are the first to guess just why this is a special post, our Mom will make a donation in your name to your favorite animal charity and award you a prize too.

I just want to shout about this special post, but I'm also tired, so I'll just lie here and yell.

Maybe I should enter the Monty Q contest if it's not too late.

Have any of you seen the beautiful Smilla from Germany? She looks like me and I am honored that she visited our blog this past week.

Mom promises that she will start letting us post and visit friends more regularly--perhaps weekly. We had a very sick home computer for a while. The computer lady doctor had to make it well. The McAfee anti-virus messed everything up so badly that we could not even log into our mail or into blogger! And just going online took forever! We have an old computer and it needed more memory. The computer lady told Mom what to order and she was able to install it all by herself.

We are so pleased that you stopped by to visit us. Be sure to make a guess about this special post.

~Bathsheba


We have a winner! Please see the comments.

We think Rocky's got it right, so we looked in your archives and found the 8/12 post that Bathsheba turned 16, so that would make her 17 on Tuesday! Though we sure hope Skeezix is right too, if that's what your mom wants. Purrsonally, we hope it's both, plus a big lottery win!

I think it's your blogoversary, because you started not long before me. ???

Nope, none of the above. If I get to post on the 12th, then that post will be SUPER special.

Keep guessing. Maybe it's not THAT special, but we did think that it was significant.

Are you getting a new sibling?
Or are you moving? Those are the only things we can think of this late.

I am glad you are back! I missed you a lot. Could it be your 200th post?

We thought it might be your second blogoversary, but that's not until later in the month so maybe Daisy is right about your 200th post.
Are you getting a blurpy?

I have no idea what it may be, but I am going to guess that you are moving to a new house.
Whatever it is, I am happy for you and it's good to see you again!
Smooches!

OMG - Findus and Smilla are like Karl and Anastasia! Not necessarily how they look but how they are with each other...
We know Bathsheba's birthday is coming up, we marked it in our Cat Blogopshere Calendar so we knew that's not it. But we were hoping for a party???
It must be your 300th post. Ours was a few days ago and we TOTALLY missed it!!!
I am happy that you are o.k. and I will tell Karl - who still is one the "endless safari", hohohohohoho

And the winners are . . .

The Hotties from the House of the Mostly Black Cats!

Yes, it was our 300th post. If we had kept up our regular pace, we would have hit 300 by the first of this year.

Mom finds the idea of a new sibling very intriguing. She considered that back at the first of the year when she was very sad. Kitties are in short supply in the dead of winter, but not now. Sorry Mom, but we don't want to share your attention with anyone else. We don't need an annoying kitten to bother us.

Purrrrrrrrrs,
Alla the Hotties
