Sandpiper's Anniversary/Bloggiversary ~ 1 year!

Dear Piper,

Miss Piper Puppy! I cannot believe it has been one year since we took you in as our pregnant foster kitty. I had a feeling that you wouldn't be leaving us - but I knew for sure you were as good as ours when you spent every night curled up against my chest.

Piper 3/13/2011 - 40 days pregnant here. Same night she miscarried her kittens.
I was so sad for you, when you miscarried your kittens - it's also been one year since that happened, because you lost your kittens on the first night we got you. I remember waking up at 3 am, to you rustling around in my rooms. I knew right away what was happening. We sat with you for 4 hours while you miscarried the kittens. We cleaned you up and made sure you were comfortable. We grieved with you, and for your kittens.

Mom and dad took you to the vet for your emergency spay. You stayed overnight and I missed you so much. Everyone helped me take great care of you and helped nurse you back to health. Our friends said many comforting things to help us feel better about our and your loss. Our friend Sara even gave us a soft pink blanky and pink collar for you!

It's crazy to realize that a year has gone by since I started this blog I can't believe how much you've grown! You are a big, fluffy kitty! Your white ruff blossomed as you got healthier - you look like a Maine Coon. My original icon of you, is from the first few weeks I had you. You don't even look like the same cat any more!

The face that stole our hearts!

Piper, you are so much more than a companion to me, you're my inspiration! I would never have started this blog without you, or would it have reached the success that it has mounted to. So thank you for coming into my life, thank you for helping me reach the success that I could have only dreamed of.

Come on mom! How many pictures are you going to take before we're done.
I love you Piper! Thanks to everyone who has helped me with my blog! It would not be the same blog without my readers!

  4. Happy anniversary Piper!! (And bloggiversary too!) I teared up when you were talking about her miscarriage and taking care of her. She's a lucky kitty to be with you. Here's to many more years of stories and happiness!

  5. What a sweet and beautiful post. I am sorry for Piper's loss, but am so happy she has such a loving and wonderful furever home. Concats on the one year Rachel - I'm sure there will be a day soon when I can say, "I remember her when..."
