1000 Posts!

Well we made it! Today is our 1000th post. We started blogging on July 20th 2006 after mum had googled ginger cats and found Fat Eric's blog. His mum persuaded our mum to let us blog and you can see our very first post where we introduce ourselves here.
Flynn: As you will see, Eric thought it was going to be his blog and I would just make an appearance now and again. I soon put him straight!
We noticed we told everybody our weight back then. Eric was 20lbs and I was 13lbs. Well, Eric is still 7lbs heavier than me except that I am now 16lbs and he is 23lbs. Mum would like us to get back to that weight and has cut our food back with no more crunchies and has rationed the treaties, but we do get yummy Stinky Goodness. We deserve extra today to celebrate.

Last Monday we said there would be a prize for the 17th commenter on our 999th post and we would announce the winner on our 1000th post.
Fanfare please!
The 17th comment yesterday came from our fellow English bloggers Charlie, Thomas and Lola at The Paw Relations


We think we have your address but can you email us anyway so we can check it is right. Our email address is:
ericandflynn1 (AT) googlemail (DOT) com
Concatulations for being our winners.

We hope you will all join us now for niptinis and meowgaritas, and there is plenty of ham and shrimp to eat. Now let's PARTY!!!

Since we moved so many times - from blogger to wordpress, back to blogger, back to wordpress and now back to blogger again, we have no idea how many posts we've done. It's probably a lot, but in reality it's only the current one, right?
