One Year Ago Today...

...Harlie was still brand new in our home. In fact, she did not even have a name yet. We had just begun to spend more time together and were really building our relationship. Inspired by something that Max had done on his blog, Mom took a picture of us eating dinner one night. The first picture is the one she took last year, in our old apartment. She actually got a little choked up looking at how small Harlie was back then. The next picture shows us now. Harlie is really quite the lady cat now. Thanks Max and Buddah for this idea!

Oh, look at that! She was so small and cute, no wonder your Mom got sentimental.

Harlie grew more than Misty did in her first year. And look how glossy your furs are!

Obviously you've done a great job at raising her, Mattingly!

Love
Tipper

Ahhhh! Look at the teeny-tiny Harlie! I like seeing the pattern on her coat from above, too. I think you two might be the same size now!

Harlie looks like she's gotten a lot of love and affection in the past year. Congratulations and happy 1st Gotcha Day! (Hey, Mattingly, I see your 2nd birthday is right around this time too. Happy Birthday, man!)

Wow that little girl sure did grow up to be a lovly lady.

Max said...

Wow...she really has grown up alot! If it wasn't for the fact that kittens act like they're on fire all the time, I'd kinda wish they'd stay that way. They're cute when they're so little. 'Course, *I'm* still cute...

What a difference a year makes. What great photos.

Does Mattingly love his Tuxie charm? I thought it looked a lot like him. We got the check today -- thanks for the extra -- I'll be forwarding it on to Jody by the end of the week. She really needs it now, after being robbed.

Thanks again,
ML
