Blogoversary


C.2010
Abby is sitting on the back of my chair.
I just like this photo.

***
Today,
12 years ago
that little black and white cat
inspired me to document
her life.
This blog began solely for 
the purpose of doing just
that.

***
I didn't know much about blogging
in those days. In fact I only
knew of a handful of bloggers,
some who are still blogging today.
Most of the 'old-timers'
have left for a lot of different
reasons.

***
I often found it understandable,
but sad that when the cat passed,
the person would stop blogging.
You form attachments and it's
hard to feel that loss.

***
It never occurred to me when I started
blogging Abby's life, that I would
lose her. I know, shake your head,
I understand. But it became apparent
after those first few losses of other
cat friends that one day it would happen 
to me....and it did in 2013.

***
I lost her and my world for that 
reason and many others
has never been the same.
But, I am so very lucky
that girl came into my life,
and even though I miss her
so deeply, everyday, I am 
grateful.
So grateful.

***
So today I celebrate the reason
for the creation of this blog
and 12 years of blogging.
Even though the blog
has transitioned from it's 
original muse it still continues on
in her voice.
It helps so much to keep her 
memories alive and also 
to create new ones.
Thank you all for joining 
in her ride.
