6 in ’04 – Friday Flashback.

This spring finds us loving our third generation of cat families. You know our current (3rd) crew. In tribute to our second batch, here’s a group of them all together back in 2004 in what was the old Cat Den. Boy, they had fancy rugs and poofy pillows and everything!

“See? We can occasionally get everyone together for a picture,” Mom said smugly before the Dad reminded her that mere moments later, Crits and Skitters, lifelong enemies, had each other cornered and the fur was flying!

Regardless of any fights or trouble, we miss you guys. *swipes at eyes*

  4. Wow! This huge pillow looks very comfy!

    • Shhh, don’t tell anyone but Mom says was a bed made for dogs with achy bones. AND, it’s now used in the Cat Den to make our real bed comfy and cushy. If some of us weren’t friends with dogs, we might not like that!

  5. Just think of all the love you have shared with fur people over the year. Now you’re sharing even more love with those of us on the internet. Big purrs to all of you!!!!

  19. *sniff*

    You know, if my mom and dad think back to 2004, only 2 of the 10 of us were around then…only Jonesie and Madison. The rest of our family from that time is at the Rainbow Bridge. *bows head in honor*

  20. That’s a great photo 🙂 It sounds like kitty heaven around there with all that kitty loves.

  21. It’s always fun to reminisce about the previous generations. Amazing you had all 6 sleeping peacefully for a photo (even if only for a short time).

  22. Cats, cats, everywhere cats! Looking good to me.

  23. That’s a sweet memory ( except for the flying fur part).
    What a comfortable wall to wall cat palace.

  24. Just throwing this is…I can’t catch the camera doing its thing it seems. Always a black screen. Darn.

    • Hmm, we check and reset it once every morning, Pacific time. At night, even with two nightlights in there, it’s very, very dark. Maybe Mom is hogging the whole screen when she’s in there cleaning? MOL! We’ll keep checking it, and thank you!

  25. Just lovely memories.

  26. Aw, thank you for sharing these precious memories of your beloved second crew with us. Thank you for loving them so much.
