We've been blogging for five years now. Can you believe that?
And it's been quite an amazing, awe-inspiring journey. We've learned a lot in five years. Well, Mum has. I'm a cat so I'm wise already.
Mum says she's been tremendously inspired by all the fantastic pet bloggers who not only take the time to write such informative posts, but are also such nice people who really love their pets. We are both happy to have you all as blogging pals and furriends.
It's incredible really, this blogging world, isn't it? Pet bloggers really are the bestest bunch of people in the universe: friendly, welcoming, warmhearted, and let's not forget very creative. We have been inspired by each and every one of you.
To celebrate our 5 year blogoversary Mum is going to make a donation of £1 for every comment made in this post to Wood Green The Animals' Charity, the amazing charity who rescued me when I was a homeless kitten dumped on the streets. UPDATE: COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED
Before you make your comment though, have a read through my very first post. And if you have time, check out our other posts from our first month of blogging too. Mum's photography has improved a lot since then, but I always look good, no matter how good the photographer is :)
HERE IS OUR VERY FIRST POST
posted Wednesday, 26 October 2011
Hi, this is my first post. Mummy said I should have my own blog so here I am. My name, as you of course know, is Athena. It was my mummy's idea. She says it's because she has always loved that name and she wished she had been called that instead of Marie. She dreamed of giving it to her daughter one day, but as she hasn't got a human daughter, she gave me that name instead, I am of course her daughter too, just a feline one. I know she prefers cats to humans, anyway.
The idea of cat goddess is of course Mum's. She always calls me her little goddess, and let's face it, that's how she treats me, and I love it. I wouldn't have it any other way.
Here's me with Mummy back in July when I was a baby. It was taken during my first week with her. Look how happy she is. I love her so much. She had been having a hard time lately, so I'm so glad I have made her smile properly. A real smile reaches the eyes, and as you can she, she is smiling with hers and not just with her lips.
Here are more of my fave pics for you. Enjoy!
