Yesterday was the first anniversary of Melly's arrival at chez Natalie, which was also the first anniversary of this blog. Melly, as many of you know, started out as Sally Dickens on Pitter Pats of Baby Cats.
I used to coo and squee over the adorable baby kitties on Sue's blog on a daily basis, and even though I was happy with Scarlett as an only cat, something about tiny, precocious Sally just called out to me. And so, little Sally came to live with me, was quarantined in the bathroom, and was renamed Melly.
If you've been with us since the beginning, you know that the transition was not easy and I had serious second thoughts. Scarlett was miserable and I was a guilty wreck.
But Melly was such a sweet and happy little fluffball that she managed to charm us all and I could not be happier that she is here. Even Scarlett has mostly come around.
Happy gotcha day, my sweet Mellybean!
