Months ago we were honored to be asked by Roxy The Traveling Dog to purrticipate in "My 7 Links:The Tripbase Blog Post Project" and of course with Mom being as wonderfully "on the ball" as she is, it took her so long to get around to posting about this, that three other wonderful bloggers, requested that Mom purrticipate as well. Those blogs are: Paw Print City Times, Affurmation, and My Brown Newfies. Anyone notice something surprising here? The blogs that asked Mom to purrticipate are all blogs about WOOFIES...now that's some kibble for thought I'll tell ya! We are honored!
Mom and I thought that our second blog-o-versary would be the purrfect time to purrticipate!
The goal of this blogging event is "to unite bloggers from all sectors in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again."
Here are the categories we were given along with our selections:
MOST BEAUTIFUL POST: "ZACK'S PRECIOUS MESSAGE" which appeared Saturday, April 17, 2010. We feel that it is the most "beautiful" because even in a time of unimaginable grief, precious Zack was only thinking about sparing others the pain that he was going through at that time.

MOST POPULAR POST: "THE MOST EXPENSIVE CAT BREEDS" by Heather Kalinowski of Trupanion Pet Insurance. It appeared November 16, 2010. Yep, you literary mavens will not be surprised to see that the most popular post was NOT written by either of the grammatical geniuses, Mom or myself. (Gasp! Surprise!) When Mom and I started this blog we decided to lap up knowledge from the enormous cat bowl of intellect/experience that is rampant in the Pet Blog-O-Sphere.
Oh sure we could go to Wikipedia and look up a host of information about any given topic, but who wants to regurgitate misc. facts like a stagnant hairball? Certainly not "MOI" nor my Mom! We admit we are not "experts" in a variety of categories pertaining to cats and that is when we call in the "reserves!!", our guest bloggers/experts, YOU! We are recreational cat lovers as are many of you. Mom and I believe that we should never stop learning, we enjoy having YOU share your knowledge and expertise with us as much as we love sharing YOUR knowledge with others!
MOST CONTROVERSIAL POST- "Cody Gets His Say" June 11, 2010. Not controversial as in the hot topic of the day, in my world , "controversial" is defined as what is relevant to ME (Cody), that's my frame of reference and that is all that matters, are we on the same page?
MOST HELPFUL POST- "Cats And Christmas" which appeared twice, December 2009 and December 2010 and with Christmas just a turkey wing away we decided to pull it out of the vault and truss it up now. "Fa-la-la-la-la" to US!
A POST WHOSE SUCCESS SURPRISED YOU- "Mahalo Monday" January 17, 2011. There IS truth to the rumor that there really ARE closet Barry Manilow and kidney stone fans out there!
Now, on to the blogs that I am passing this blog post project to. Many of you have already received an invitation to do this, these are just some of the blogs that I regularly follow and enjoy that I think haven't been invited to do the 7 links post yet:
The Chronicles Of Zee & Zoey
Mom and I would like to thank all of you for your love, laughs and support. If we didn't have YOU, WE wouldn't be HERE. We love CATS, we love YOU and HERE is exactly where WE want to BE!
