Five Years Old!

It's hard to believe it, but today marks the five year anniversary of the Itty Bitty Kitty Committee !  

Thank you so much for these five wonderful years.  I feel so incredibly lucky having all of you in all in our lives.  I appreciate your support and the many kind comments you leave each day.  It's been exciting to watch the community grow, and make new friends along the way.

 I feel blessed to live a life that allows me to foster.  It truly has been a pleasure getting to know every single kitten that has passed through our doors and I love being able to share them with you.  

Ten years ago, if you would of told me this is what I would end up doing, I never would of believed you.  Now, I can't imagine doing anything else but this.

I am so thankful I found the way to this path.

In celebration of this day, I put together a collection of a few favorite IBKC moments.  

Here's to many more years and many more memories!

Much, much love and many thanks,
xoxo

Laurie

  12. Congrats on your anniversary!! I noticed my favorite IBKC moment was in your collage - Drewey being nice to Benny!

    I too had a cranky cat, whom I adored and loved, and because of that Drewey has been my favorite from the start!

  28. Congratulations on 5 years and thank you Laurie, Craig and lovely Miss Butterbean for all that you do to improve the lives of kittens and people alike. Thank you for sharing the journey with all of us and brightening our days. :-)

    On a side note can someone please tell me who the teeny orange kitten sitting in a bright blue (bed?) is in the first set? It's in column 4 row 5. I've been trying for weeks to figure it out.

    2. Thank you, thank you, thank you! He must be one of the very few orange kitties I didn't find in all my searching and I'm so glad to now be able to see all the pics of him...oh my gosh was he cute! Little trouble-maker too from the sounds of it! ;-)

  32. Myself and so many others are so thankful you found the way to this path also - not to mention every wonderful, sweet itty bitty that has started their journey with you, Charlene, and Craig. We are all so grateful. I don't post much but I check the site several times each day and each day it brings a smile, laugh, tear, or all three at once. Congratulations on the big 5 and here's hoping to a fantastic 5 more!!

  37. What a joyous day!! And how fun looking at all the photos of your darling alumni, even Jerry Lee (I got kind of weepy). I loved seeing Drewey and Benny, dancing Thurman, the bathtub soccer league, Charlene...

    Here's to MANY more wonderful years.

  38. Happy birthday and many happy returns! Riza and Mei send their congrats as well!

    (Do you know I still think of Mei sometimes as Tiny Tabby? Even though there is nothing about her--size, personality, trouble-making talent--that is tiny at this point!)

  39. Laurie, you have brightened many a day with ittbitties, photos, and your own kitteh updates. You've also given the world dear Miss Charlene and her little charges. You have made my day for almost five years (I forget when I tuned in!), so congrats and blessings on you! Cicero & Phidian send very loud purrs.
