Number 200!

here it is: post number 200! that's a lot of posts since November 2006. it's been so much fun...and lots of great things have happened because of this little blog.

we're going to talk about family in this blog. someone asked about all the family relationships, how they got started, who is related to who, etc. so let's get started.

last year--in november 06--mom had a myspace blog. mom's niece jessica suggested that mom might like blogger better. mom read jessica's blog and realized that she liked it better too. daisymae and the feline americans are my cousins.

at first, suzanne wrote the blog. it was called 'under the bed' because that's where suzanne spent her time when she was scared. i think she was the original skitter kitty! suzanne was 15 when she started writing. she turned 16 in may, and then crossed the bridge in june.

before she crossed the bridge, oscar told suzanne that he had always wanted to be a dad, but had not fathered any children. he asked if suzanne would allow him to be her father. suzanne agreed, and oscar adopted her. at almost the same time, oscar adopted miss peach.

the family continued growing: marilyn monreow became a sister, pounce married oscar and created more family relationships.

when suzanne crossed the bridge, i started writing the blog. i changed the name to 'the fuzz factor' because i am fuzzy. i felt close to omer and asked him to be my uncle. that made him and oscar brothers. omer's kitty girl forest has recently had kittens. that makes us cousins.

when lucy came to live with us a few weeks ago, marie said she had always wanted to be a big sister. lucy adopted her.

update: mom forgot to include one of our favorite aunties: auntie tina. she writes a great blog! cats, sheep, flowers, life. mom says 'sorry! i had a brain cramp. we LOVE having auntie tina as part of our family!'

that's our family--at the moment!

Families are the best thing ever, for all of the intimacy and caring. Nothing can break up a family, not even death. Suzanne is still part of a wonderful family.

Congratulations on post #200! You're way more prolific than I am. I've nearly been blogging for a year, and haven't even done 100! But that's Kate's fault, not mine.
