Our Second Blogversary

Two years ago today, two angels worked very hard to rescue and foster and publicize Grace and her four tiny babies. Deb and ML were magnificent - still are, actually - Deb in her racing speed and fostering skills, and ML in her terrific work setting up and maintaining this blog until all five (Grace and babies) had forever homes.

Here's a beautiful pictorial sequence to honor both Deb and ML on the second blogversary of Momma Grace & Company. Thanks to Ann of Zoolatry for her marvelous artwork.

Two angels, watching over Grace and her babies.

Grace, learning how to be an excellent mommy for her babies: Foster (now Ruse), Brutus, Pete (now Audace), and Marigold.

Baby and grown-up photos of Audace and Ruse.

And amazing Grace - who still likes to give her "babies" a bath now and then!

Thank you to everyone who helped make these past two years so fantastic for Grace & Company, as well as for me and my family. What a wonderful blogging community I found in late May, 2006.

PS - You can see all the baby pictures in the May and June 2006 archives of this blog and in the June - October 2006 archives at my other blog!

Oh, my babies, my former foster babies! Has it been two years? It seems like yesterday that I was watching them learn how to walk. Oh the fun I had with Grace & Company. When I was on my way home with them, my sister, Retta, told me that I was their "Saving Grace", which is how Grace got her name. In reality, they were mine!

The graphics are simply lovely and my heart is truly touched.

Love always, Deb

Oh, my. Look at this. How beautiful, the graphics are amazing.
And do you know what? This is how Deb and I met. And do you know who introduced us? None other than Karen C. (Grr, Midnight & Cocoa's lady)! Wow.
Has it been two years? It does seem like yesterday. Will never forget talking to Deb as she raced to the shelter to get "the Momma kitty and four kittens" before they were euthanized. Dr. Smith, Houston Cat Hospital, had informed Deb what was happening and Deb was literally flying to the shelter.
What a wonderful story.
Love, ML

Happy 2nd blogoversary! Mama Grace & her kits are so cute. How sweet that Deb & ML saved mama and all her kittens and found them homes. Too many stories don't have a happy ending. Fortunately, this one does.

You're right: Deb & ML are angels right here on earth!

Purrs from our family to yours,

Thanks for stopping by my blog and wishing me a Happy Birthday and Gotcha Day.
Yes, my mommy ML was afraid of cats. I said "Gotcha" when she looked into my crystal blue eyes and realized it was love. Ha ha.
