Yes, our internet connection has finally been restored but it has taken so long that Mummy thinks she may have forgotten what to do!
Meanwhile, I have been sending her into our local Library to keep track of all your blogs; her time there is rationed so she has not been able to relay many of my comments but I have been purring very hard for all of you and my paws have been crossed for those with health problems.
A short post today just to announce my return - more news over the next few days, I hope.
Yes, Mummy, this hasn't been too difficult for you, has it?
Today is a very special easy Sunday - my fourth Gotchaversary.
Yes, I am celebrating FOUR whole years in my wonderful forever home.
Isn't the passage of time strange? I still remember my first tentative exploration of the house (and finding one of my special hidey-holes) as if it were yesterday, yet it feels as though Mummy and I really have been together forever - she says we were made for each other.
We have had a lovely quiet day full of cuddles, snuggles, purrs and special treats; so far, I have had ham and cheese and I think there may be some tuna coming soon - my paws are crossed for a garnish of prawns.
This year I have realized just how lucky I am - however difficult life has been for Mummy she has never neglected me. There is always good food, a clean litter tray and, best of all, plenty of hugs and cuddles.
Mummy and I would like to thank all our furiends and their humans who have continued to follow us and supported us throughout this very difficult year during which we have posted so infrequently and our visiting and commenting has been very haphazard.
The good news is that things are improving ... I don't want to tempt fate by saying more at the moment ...
Here I am enjoying a special Blogoversary meal ... nom! nom!
Yes, I actually let Mummy use the flashy picture box - she needs some practice.
