The place for pets, and their owners

Happy New Year!


Well, I don’t know about you all, but I’m just thrilled to bits 2009 is done with. Not that there weren’t some good things — the birth of my first niece chief among them — but all in all I can’t say I’m unhappy to start a new year.
I wish you all a happy, healthy and safe New Year’s Eve, and here’s to a better 12 months ahead.
Hard to believe, but I’ve been at this blog a little more than 16 months now. I’d just like to thank everyone for all their support and contributions this past year, and keep it coming in 2010!

When I first started here, I introduced you to Stanley and Cup, who you’ve gotten to know over time. It’s been a long time and many, many posts since then, so as an end-of-year gift I thought I’d share these old pics of the girls when they were just little babies. Oh I miss those days!

Here’s Stanley (look at those ears!):


And here’s Cup (so teensy!):black-cat

Oh yes, and a Happy New Year to all four-footers!

About this blog
For most animal lovers, pets are members of the family. They carry around pictures in their wallets and schedule vacations with pets in mind. This blog takes a look into the world of a pet owner: the good, the bad and the just plain obsessive.

She liked cats enough, but didn't really think of them as true pets. That changed when her brother brought an abandoned 4-week-old kitty into the family, dooming us all.
