How Do You Like Me Now? (Meow?)

Rocky chilling on an easy Sunday
Pet bloggers are the best kind of peeps, I think. If not "the" best, then certainly in the top five. That's been my experience, at least. I have met so many caring, kind, wonderful people since I began managing the RPO pet food blog 4 1/2 years ago and now having my own personal blog this year.

Everyone is so nice, and one of the nicest is Ann from Zoolatry, who you may remember did the Halloween photos for my three fur babies that I posted here. Ann also offered to do a custom header for my new blog, for FREE (!) and I readily accepted. I was just using one of the Blogger templates and my blog had no style, no freshness or uniqueness.

Look at it now! Isn't it purrty? She asked me what my favorite colors were (pink and purple) and took it from there. I love the new look. As an extra surprise, she even did a holiday header for me, which I'll switch to in a few days. Thanks, Ann! Your generosity and talent is much appreciated.

Another wonder blogger, Alasandra from Alasandra, the Cats and Dogs made a great graphic for me to help publicize my auction for Annabelle's vet bills. Isn't it cute? If you have kitties, doggies, kids, pet lovers and just "regular" folks (MOL) on your Christmas list, I hope you'll take a peek at the auction here.

Today I am thankful for all the good friends and lovely people I've met in the pet blogging world. You are all simply the best, and I feel blessed to know you.

  7. Rocky, You are one GOOD-LOOKIN' kitty! (Course, I *am* a little prejudiced in favor of my fellow black cats....) I made the Human put in a bid on some cat toys!

  11. We agree and think your blog header is fabulous. WE wish we could help with your auction by bidding but we are still recovering ourselves from enormous vet bills from Abby and now Boo. We always tried to help out before but right now $$$ is very tight. We really hope you have a great success with your auction because we know what it is like to big Vet bills.
