Twelve Years Of Changes.

Today is our blogoversary! Our blog was started 12 years ago by our brother William. This was the first picture he ever posted.

William and Olivia on the Forbidden Table, 2004

Back then our family was just Mom, Eddie, William and Olivia. Then came me (Caroline), then Eddie flew to the Bridge, then Russell moved in, then PQ (Gracie). A few years later the Bridge called to Olivia, then PQ, then Russell. We tried to welcome Charlotte to our family but sadly we were unsuccessful. (Thankfully, she finally did find the best home for her.) Then Elliott came home, and then Ivan and Izzy joined us. And then William crossed the Bridge this year. Yes, we've had a lot of changes.

I am the last original

We've gained friends and lost friends, too. But we are grateful for every one. And so thank you for seeing us through all these years, the good and the bad. We love you all.

As for another change, we have decided to close Feline O' Mine at the end of this year. Since we make toys to order, we still have enough materials to send some your way. Quantities will be very limited, so be sure to visit before December 31!


  1. Concatulations on your blogoversary - 12 years! Caroline, we know you will carry on the proud tradition of An Original with distinction and no small amount of screaming.

  2. Happy blogoversary! Yes, there have been both sad and happy changes in your house, and on the blog. I'm glad I was here for some of them... and I'm sure Sparkle was glad to be there before I was here.

  3. Happy Blogoversary!!! That sure is a lot of changes over the years and we're glad you're here!

  4. Happy Blogoversary. Derby always said you guys were part of the original gang. We miss him, plus all of yours that have gone ahead.

    Happy you are still here, me too.

  5. Happy 12th Blogoversary!! That is an amazing milestone.
    We have enjoyed many of your adventures.
    WE started following you not long after we started blogging in August 2007.
    We laffed at the antics and cried at the sad passings.
    We still love seeing you kitties.
    At your various ages, you all have different things to offer and we enjoy it a lot :)
    We look forward to keeping you a part of our daily routine
    Monday to Thursday!

  7. Hey, it's our blogoversary too! We've been blogging 9 years. You got us beat. You're right, we've seen a lot of changes over the years. Friends have come and gone...and it's sad. But we've made new ones too.

    Happy Blogoversary!

  8. Happy Blogoversary!!!!12 years is a very long time. I wish I had known about blogs back then to have been following you all that time, I am glad I did find you though. :)

  9. Happy Blogoversary, Kitties and Human! I never knew Eddie, but I have been lucky enough to be here for all the others. There have been a lot of sad goodbyes, but also many joyous hellos -- We've loved every one of you, especially, you know, that little Screamer Girl. We hope you had a good Christmas and look forward to a great 2017! XOXOXO P.S. Glad to hear Charlotte found the right home, too.
