The Anniversary: A Cat Success Story

In two days, my husband and I will be celebrating our "seventhmonthivesary," which is our way of saying "We've been married for seven months, so we're going to celebrate!"

I've been threatened by our family members, who grow tired of our monthly celebrations, that once we hit the one year anniversary, we'll have to stop our monthiversaries, and I'm sure we will. It's just been so exciting to celebrate every small step we make together as a couple.

Married couples aren't the only ones to celebrate anniversaries--cats have anniversaries as well, especially Emma, a library cat.

This year on February 4, Emma celebrated her 10th anniversary at Lyme Public Library in Connecticut.   In 2003, Emma arrived at the library and instantly became part of the family. Her previous home had been the local animal shelter, so on her anniversary the library accepted gifts of cat and dog food, toys, and other pet supplies to be donated to the shelter for other pets like Emma who were without a home.

An article on The Lymes Patch about Emma says that she has had country-wide visitors. She's also been featured in Cat Fancy magazine, the book Working Cats of Southern New England, and has her own page on Lyme Public Library's website. Emma also has a twitter you can follow.

In August, Finny will have been with me for two years, and this October, Finnegan will celebrate the first anniversary of his blog. He looks forward to celebrating these anniversaries with you!

This is my party outfit!
