Gotcha Day & Blogaversary!

Dragonheart
Today I celebrate my first Gotcha Day and my first Blogaversary! One year ago today, my humans picked me up at my breeder's in Frankfurt, and we drove six hours back to Munich. Later that day, I started blogging!

Dragonheart, 17 weeksHere are some photos of me in my new home on that first day.Dragonheart, 17 weeks

Wasn't I a cute little kitten? I am 17 weeks old in these photos. You can read my very first blog post here. You can also see more photos of my first day in my Forever Home here.


I love my humans and my home, and we have had a wonderful first year together. I have had a lot of exciting adventures; made many friends across the globe through blogging; have chronicled my daily life and adventures through photos, my blog, and digital scrapbooking; won some fabulous prizes in contests; received wonderful presents for my first birthday; shared both joy and sorrow with my friends and fellow bloggers; but overall, I had a wonderful year.

Thank you to all my fellow cat bloggers for your friendship and support. I am very lucky and blessed to have a wonderful Forever Home and so many wonderful friends.

Happy blogaversary. Ya were such a tiny peanaut and so cute, and ya know what? I think you still are cute and beautiful. Thanks for heading on down for the auditions. Ya do have a part in the play but the two that ya wanted are taken. I do have something in mind for ya and need to talk to ya about it. I don't want to give too much away and say what it is here so I need ya to e-mail me. I'll hole that part open until I hear from ya, get back to me before noon tomorrow though or I will have to recast somecat else in that.

Sassy Cat said...

Congratulation to both events ! Is it really already one year ago ? Time goes by so fast. Rosie will be 7 months now on Dec 5th ! She is almost a grown up cat. (Has to be spayed next month, poor thing) She has become the perfect housewife and puts her toys in or around the food bowls.

Happy first Gotcha Day and Blogaversary! I had to take a while to learn to use computer before I start to blog. It was something new and very confusing to me. My Purrrthday - which is actually my Gotcha Day - is Tuesday. We do not know when my Purrrthday actually was, so we celebrate it on my Gotcha day.

I hope you get lots of good presents for you Gotcha day and Blogaversary. You is one of my favorite cat bloggers because of all the interesting things you post!

Willow said...

Caesar and Princess said...

Happy Gotcha day and Blogaversary Dragonheart. You were soooo cute when you were a kitten. This has been an exciting year for you!
Those baby pictures of you are soooo cute. I know it must have been very scary and lonely for you when you came to your new home. Prinnie and I were together and it was scary. We cried and we were shakey. I am sure your mommie was feeling very sad for you and wanting to make you happy.
we are so glad you are with your wonderful beans!

Ruis said...

Happy Gotcha Day & Blogaversay, Dragonheart!!

I have read your first post... it's so sweet and you so cute.:) I was also happy to read that you were 17 weeks old when you went to your forever home. Too many kitties are going to a new home too early, before they've learned all the important things from their mom and littermates.

You found the best Forever Home a cat can wish, if you ever want a Cornish Rex brother or sister...;)

The Furry Bambinos said...

Dragonheart, Happy Gotcha Day and Blogaversary! We are so happy that you have found such a wonderful furrever home with such great parents! We are happy that you will be getting a little brother soon to add to the joy. Thanks for visiting us and wishing us a warm welcome to the Cat Blogosphere!
