Happy 5th Blogversary

Happy 5th Blogversary to us here on WordPress.  The Feline Cafe blog started in 2009 on Blogger with the same name. Things have changed as far as blog platforms and what is cool are concerned.  I will turn you over to Marigold and she will explain a few things. (There is a reason for using this image!)
