I hope you’re all having a wonderful, warm holiday season. I know I say this every year, but I appreciate you all so much. Thank you for reading, commenting, lurking – and some of you for adopting my fosters! This has been a bit of a roller coaster year for us, and I’m hoping for a calmer 2018 with no losses (for us AND for you), jam-packed with adorable kittens.
I would likely blog about the permanent residents and fosters even if y’all weren’t reading – but you all make it so much more fun (and informative!), so thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Festivus – whatever holiday you celebrate (or don’t) I hope you are warm, happy, safe, and well-fed.
Wishing you a Meowy Christmas – former fosters Charming (now Toby) and Jareth (now Sooty)!
(Thank you, K, for letting me share those sweet boys!)
This year’s cover boy for the holiday card was…
Dennis! I actually took that picture last year, and loved it and the “Come, let us adore him” so much that I ordered the cards earlier than usual this year. They arrived before we lost him, and I dithered briefly over whether to use another picture, but I thought it was a nice way to honor his memory. (And I mean, wasn’t he THE most beautiful boy?)
I hope everyone who wanted a card received theirs. I sent the last batch out on Wednesday morning, so if you haven’t received yours yet, it’s on the way.
I’ve scanned every card I’ve received so far – you can see the album over at Flickr, or scroll through them below. I will, of course, add any more that I receive as I get them.
Here are the cards from years past, starting with the oldest.
Other pictures that could have been cards, but weren’t:
Tubby, from 2001 or 2002.
Reacher in 2010. I love this picture.
