I hope you are all doing fine. Milou seems to be doing a bit better =^.^=
As I said on Sunday, I have a big piece of news to announce and this is that I now have my own domain! My
assistant human was so frustrated by the limits the WordPress.com blog had, that she bought me a domain and a hosting place! Yeah!
Kitshka and I are super happy for our new place! Milou would like to know if that means more food is coming…
Now, don’t get us wrong: WordPress.com is a wonderful free tool and it served us well the past (almost) two years and we are thankful for it!
Time had come to get serious though.
So, what do you need to do?
If you have bookmarked my blog, or entered its URL (address) in a reader, you have to change this URL (address): The new address is
To keep on receiving my notifications by email, you need to subscribe again (sorry): enter your email address in the little box, on the top of the sidebar on your right. UPDATE: The furry nice people at WordPress have just notified me that they had successfully moved all my followers to my new blog. SO, if you were already following me, you should not have to subscribe again. You should receive my Wordless Wednesday post tomorrow without doing anything. Please do let me know if you don’t. A BIG thank you to WordPress!
The WordPress.com blog you used to know will stay for now, but it won’t be updated anymore. Pics of me and Kitshka and Milou will be here!
As you can see, the design of the blog is pretty much the same. For now. Changes are to come, but since this is a kitty blog, you know, we thought they should come gradually ;-)
I hope you’ll enjoy the new experience. Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you encounter any technical problems!
I am going to take a nap and then visit your bloggies, while my human is working on my new blog!
Purrs y’all! And make yourself at home!
YAY, Texas! Concats on the new site. We’re signing up, so we’ll continue to receive emails.
(Although Motor Mommy did think that it said: “enter your e-mail address in the LITTER box… humans!)
MOL! Humans can be funny sometimes ;-)
Congratulations on getting your own domain! We’ll add the new address so we don’t miss your posts! :)
We’re mighty glad to hear that Milou is doing better.
Congratulation, I like your new “home”! :)
How fantastic, will change things our end so we don’t miss out on your posts :) xx00xx
Mollie and Alfie
Great new home Texas! Who’s hosting the site? Curious to hear if things are a lot smoother on a self hosted version – wee’ve looked into it and found some limitations but perhaps your host makes it seamless!
The hosting company is Hosting Matters. My human has been hosting a blog with them for the past ten years (nothing to do with kitties though) and has only compliments for them. The customer service – although rarely needed – is also very quick to respond and efficient.
But the hosting companies didn’t do much. The humans did everything but they say it wasn’t too difficult. Oh well, as long as they get it done ;-)
Also the WordPress people were furry nice to transfer my subscribers from WordPress.com to WordPress.org. We are crossing paws that they all receive my post tomorrow ;-)
You can email me if you have more questions and I will have my human answer you!
Hey Texas! Congratulations on getting your own domain!
I am happy to hear the good news as well about Milou a,d to know that he is safe home now. Purrs!
Yeah! I just did the same thing this week! I twittered you to tell you about it! I entered everyone’s email addresses by hand and then they got a resubscribe email so it would be easier for them. Congrats on your new internet home!!
Great monds think alike, Crepes ;-)
I saw your message and resubscribed.
Thank you for letting us all know … going to go change linky on my bloggy now *purrs* xxx’s
We didn’t know Milou had been unwell since our secretary has been lax about visiting lately.We are glad he is feeling better now!
We hope you enjoy your new site :)

We know your secretary (and you) must miss Tulip furry much, so we completely understand.

Oh wowzers! Concats on the new domain Texas……no wonder you’re taking a nap – changes can be EXHAUSTING! Bravo……Also very happy to hear Milou is feeling a bit better. I love good news :D :D :D !
Kitty Hugs, Sammy
Et hop ! D’un bond, nous voici à votre nouvelle adresse… C’est sympa aussi, par ici !
Gros ronrons et des ondes positives pour Milou :)
Mommy’s always had her own domain and hosting place. It works really well, except when something is going on with your host, ours is WestHosts. Good luck with any other changes. And, the photos are outstanding. Glad Milou is doing better. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Josette
