For this week’s Photo Hunt, I am gathering a bunch of photos and posts of my highlights of 2011! Like the photo above from one of the best parties of the year: my very own Super Cat Sunday Party! All the kitties who did not want to watch the Super Bowl (and some who snuck over during half time) came by, had niptinis, food and some won door prizes!
I also had an awesome birthday party in June! I had a giveaway and a commenthon and lots of fun. I turn 10 in 2012, so I bet next year’s party will be even bigger!
Speaking of commenthons, my biggest one was part of the Paws for Japan drive, to help after Japan’s huge earthquake and tsunami. That almost got out of control, when the World Vets humans, with 33,000 Facebook fans, mentioned I was having it. The comments were coming in faster than my human had money!
I love having giveaways when I can, and this year I had quite a few. But my favorite was one I made up: when my human came home from the Cat Writers Conference with a bunch of swag from the sponsors, I had a drawing to give away a box of goods… and the winner turned out to be the treasurer for Forever Home Feline Ranch! A bunch of their kitties got toys and treats, thanks to the Cat Writers and their conference sponsors!
This was also quite a glamorous year — I was invited to the Fancy Feast commercial shoot, and I sent my human in my place (I hope they were not too disappointed).
This was also the year my books came out on Kindle! It took my human no small amount of effort to learn how to do it with my first book. Fortunately, the publisher of my second book had it covered. Now you Kindle readers can also have your copies Kindlegraphed! I hope to work on more books in 2012!
A lot of exciting things happened this year, but did it also seem a little sad too? It seems like our kitty community lost an awful lot of friends this past year, and Truffle and Brulee’s (and Sweet Praline’s) human made an awesome tribute to them. And we also lost a human who was special to me because he made my career online possible, and I think I will close with my own photo tribute to him:
