anniversary = stan-aversary!
It's September 8th and that means it's our wedding Anniversary! Paul and I have been married 8 years today!!

But it's also our Stan-a-versary!! Exactly 3 years ago on our 5th wedding anniversary, Paul and I drove up to Atlanta to get Stanley! Here he is just days after we brought him home, testing the patience of our other rescue kitty, Mabel! Love this photo!!

Stan came from an animal rescue called A Place to Bark which is run solely by Bernie Berlin (she's also one of my closest friends). Bernie's rescue is in Tennessee so she had him transported to Atlanta where he waited a day or two for us to arrive at my friend Andra's house!

He was such a little baby (he had to be bottle fed for a few weeks before we could adopt him) and has brought so much joy to our lives! He would not be alive if it weren't for Bernie. She truly amazes me -- every day she is saving wonderful pets like Stanley from certain death at animal control. She saves so many lives and all these wonderful creatures have found new homes because of her. She is so amazing!

Thank you Bernie for the wonderful gift of life you give to these animals, and we thank you for Stanley. He is such a joy!

Claudine,
Your cats are so beautiful. My little orange cat Lancelot looked a lot like your Stanley. Mabel has such a great look on her face-- beautiful eyes.
Happy anniversary to you and Paul, too.
Joy in Florida
 
Both cats are adorable - the eldest looks very much like our cat Dumbledore.
 
AWESOME...Happy wishes all around!
