Let's stand up and cheer.....

for Ebony, it's her ONE YEAR anniversary today! I know, it seems like she's always been here. But trust me, there are many 'milestones' along the way,marking our first year together....bumpy but successful *VBS* The first year,in review: Ebony in her 'old' home...she was only there 6 months.
Ebby's first portrait...a good pose, now hold it!
Learning to be a 'quilt' cat...doing really well at this one! Watch out Wizard!
By spring, Ebby becomes my official consultant on all quilt block layouts... her stamp of approval given.
Ebby, travelin' cat. An official part of the Orphan Train, giving directions, counting the miles....home at last, an orphan no more *VBS* Hugs and purrs to all who have followed our journey through this first year *VBS*

Happy Anniversary! Isn't amazing how much our pets enrich our lives? I'm glad that you and Ebby found each other!

Carol said...

Oh Finn what a wonderful day...she sure has come a long way from that scared little kitty...Congratulations to you both!

Happy Anniversary Ebby! Cats and quilts the perfect go-together!

Awww, congratulations to both of you! If Michigan laws required a one year adoption term back for your dd#1 and you've had little Ebby for a whole year...well then, I guess you and Ebby are legal, bonded and officially stamped with approval and golden sealed! Hugs to you and a best wishes 'scratch behind the ears' for Ebby!

A year, huh? Seems like just a few months and then again, like she has always been there in your blogs. Again, I say you are the purrr-fect team. Hope you each have a little cream to celebrate.

Happy Anniversary Finn and Ebby! It doesn't seem like it's been a year since you adopted her. I remember when you got her.

I've thoroughly enjoyed this last year thru you Finn. You both have grown, I'd say.

You kitty is so pretty, she reminds of our Little "E", who we had to put down last year after a broken hip. He also enjoyed quilting, scraps and batting.

Congratulations to you and Ebby on your anniversary. It seems that you have both enriched each other's lives. She looks much more comfortable in her recent photos than in the older ones. She's really at home now.

What a cutie, Ms. Ebby is--not easy to take a picture of a black cat and still see their little faces very clearly but these turned out well. What a dear companion she has been for you this past year! Did she get a bite of kitty treat to celebrate the occasion?
