It’s My Blogaversary!

Welcome to the PAWTY friends!  Before we start the celebration, may I give MY gift to YOU?

Now – come on in and let’s get started!

Grab a hat and slip by the snack tables next! Help yourself!

 

 

Oh and doggies we didn’t forget you!  Don’t forget to check out the big tray of doggie biscuits in the back of the room – all flavors – HELP YOURSELVES!      

Help yourself to Nip!

  1. This looks like an awesome party, Sammy! Wow – you have accomplished something wonderful – one year! That represents some commitment – it isn’t always easy to be as inspired as you have been! My Sweetie Dog says “Woof” (which means “thanks for the treats”). Hope you have a wonderful day and “Celebrate good times” all day long!
    Hugs, Linda

    • Hi Miss Linda! Thanks for stopping by the pawty. I can’t believe it’s been a whole year either but I do enjoy every single day, not just blogging but reading comments from people who visit me. If you win my contest there will be some special “doggie” things in the surprise package! We’ll “customize” it for doggies or kitties as the case may be. WOO HOO!

      Have a super day yourself

  2. MEOW! What a pawty! Congrats, Sammy, on one whole year of blogging. Your mom really went “all out” for the celebration! And Mom and I love, love, love that photo of you and your Mom!
    Now….why I love One Spoiled Cat….well, besides the fact that you’re my boycatfriend…. Mom and I love seeing the obvious love between you and your mom and dad. We know they love you by all the special things they do for you, but you also show them your love by supervising all their outdoor work and keeping an eye on things when they’re away. Oh, and also keeping your Mom’s lap warm whenever she sits in her recliner.
    You’re such a special cat, Sammy, and I’m glad to be your girlkittyfriend!
    Love, Sundae (& Mom)

I’m enjoying my morning so far….I’ve already totally destroyed a couple sheets of my new tissue (but Mom has plenty!) and one of my smilie balloons popped (YIKES!) and scared me to death but other than that – things are moving right along on this special day. Thank you for telling me why you like to read my blog……who knows – maybe YOU will win the prize package???? Meanwhile, I hope you have a super special day too….WHATEVER you may do and thanks for being my friend.

  4. First, congratulations on your blogaversary, Sam! The reason I enjoy your blog so much is it always reminds me to stop and smell the roses. You would think with modern conveniences we would have a lot more “me” time but it often seems the faster I peddle, the more ground there is to cover. Your blog always helps me to stop, take a deep breath and remember Life should be FUN. Congratulations on a job well done!

    I LOVED the party!! Playing with the balloons was fun, although they scared me too! I adored the pawty hat that you gave me, and the catnip was truly some of the most delicious that I have ever tasted 🙂

  12. Hiya Sammy. So sorry I am late to comment today but Mom took off with Dad on a new hike…and it took way longer than expected. In fact, I am having to help Mom type this, so I am doing the “enter” key when she needs it.
    So first many concatulations for a whole year for your blog. Quite an accomplishment ‘cuz I know how much time it takes to do it every day. And second why I like your blog:
    -you were my very first furriend when I started blogging so of course I followed you back
    -you always offer me and Mom such great support through my paw steps forward and especially when I put a paw or two back.
    Hope I win the cool gift stuff, but I hardly ever win things…paws crossed

I’m enjoying “watching you” from afar as you journey your recovery path because I know it’s a BIG challenge. But you’re doing SO well and learning that humans can be trusted and that life can be happy! Thank you for saying so many nice things about me and my blog – we sure have met a lot of GREAT kitties and humans this past year – including you and your family. As for winning the drawing? I’ve got my paws crossed for you – Dad is pulling the name out of the hat on Monday – who knows – it might say “SAVANNAH” !!!

  14. Hi, Sammy!!! Happy Blogaversary! I am so, so happy to celebrate with you. I think you are such an incredible blogger. There are so many reasons why I like ONESPOILEDCAT. You bring so many smiles and hugs our way. You give great advice (the kitties in SP#1 had an absolute BLAST with the tissue paper!!) You have such an interesting take on the world and help us understand the cat’s point of view (from your perspective.) You are such a generous supporter of so many of the rest of us out here in the blogosphere. You have fun adventures and fabulous feet. I also love the way you write! 🙂

  16. Dear Sammy, It’s been a great year. Look, I need you to tell me something: How do you discipline her to blog every day? I just cannot get consistency of performance at this end. It’s very frustrating. Especially when I’m always two days late for a party. Ah,well.
    I’ll be honest Sammy, I don’t get to read anyone’s blogs half as much as I should. World domination takes up a lot of time in the early stages. And I’m sometimes not sure that Deirdre realises that although she’s not getting any younger, I’m seven times less likely to get younger. At least I think that’s how it works. But you have got to be one of the friendliest, most pleasant bloggers I have every had the pleasure to read and pass the time of day and sometimes night with. I wish you every success with your future blogging and also with your store…where is it? Dying to have a look!

    Like

    • I hear ya…..I think the secret to getting her to do a daily blog for me is “THE LOOK”….you know what I mean…that pitiful stare we cats are ever so good at – I sit on the couch in her studio and look adorable every morning while she’s checking email and VOILA – before I know it she’s done my blog for me. Magic. Besides, remember she’s retired and has lots of time on her hands for catering to my every need!
