A Kitten & Her Girl #ThrowbackThursday

Hi everyone, Katie here.

I bet you didn't know that this is the photo that started it all. It was the picture we used on our very first blog header way back when I started every blog post with, "Hi Everyone, Katie here."

I was an anniversary present. A nice man with kind brown eyes and a deep voice adopted me for someone he said was very, very special. This special someone had no idea what he was doing. It was going to be a HUGE surprise. He'd been hinting around ... telling her that he was working on her birthday 'kit.'

She was thinking maybe a kit for washing her car, or a kit of accessories for her iPod or something.


Little did she know, 'kit' was short for kitten. 

It was love at first sight. 

Gloman's given Glogirly some very special anniversary gifts over the years. He's always really creative and silly about how he gives her presents. Sometimes he'll hide cards by her toothbrush or tucked inside her makeup bag. One year he hid a beautiful watch in the refrigerator next to the milk. 


But the most special gift of all was a little black and white kitten with a purple bow around her neck and a tiny little tag that read, "Happy Anniversary."  


About Today's Photos
All three of these photos are very special to us. Gloman took them WAY back in September of 2005 on Katie's first weekend in her new forever townhouse with her new forever family. 

Glogirly didn't want to go to sleep that first night. She just wanted to keep holding Katie, looking into her eyes and telling her how much she loved her. And on that first night, they fell asleep together on the sofa. Katie was still curled up on Glogirly's chest the next morning.

  34. I'm going through my Glogirly emails and came upon this one. How did Gloman give you Katie to Glogirly since he is so creative. I know you had a pretty purple bow but did he just walk into the Townhouse with you in his arms, did he have you in a special box? Curious. I'm sure you were the best present of them all!!!!
