Well, it falls to me, Harvey Button,  as senior cat to formally close the door on 2015 for the DashKitten blog and to announce the winner of the last giveaway of the year. I also want to report on some of the more amazing and fun facts that arrived in our WordPress annual report. It’s kind of like a school report card except this is a real pat on the back, no wonder Mum and Miranda look happy!

First our Giveaway. Many thanks to @TinyPearlCat for choosing the winning number.

WINNER :- Meowmans

Our Report Card before we Close the Door on 2015
  • Our most loyal commenters of the year have been our lovely pal Brian FrumMeowmans Summer at SparkleCat, and The Island Cats. We are so very grateful for your support and we will return the honour in 2016.
  • Our blog was viewed about 20,000 times Word Press says (which we think is astonishing, and really weird, but who are we to know!)
  • Our most visited post was our appeal for Bootsieand we could not be more proud of a post than this. With it we kickstarted our efforts to help Bootsie get the medical care he needed – thank’s to an urgent head up from our pal Brian Frum. We followed this up with a fund raising auction All Ears for Bootsie that was supported by an host of truly generous friends – allowing Bootsie to get proper medical care. The fantastic people who donated items are listed below – drop by and visit one or two, they are all awesome people!

Pamel Kimmell and her lovely Book

Finally, our best posting day was Sunday I guess that’s because we are keen members of The Cat on my Heads Sunday Blog Hop. If you don’t know about this wonderful blog hop yet – check it out this Sunday – it is a real pleasure!

OOH Musn’t forget!!  An important Thank You to Owen the Tonk for his movie reviews. They have added a special touch to the blog as we could not review with as much perception as Owen does! We hope to invite him back in 2016.

OK we won’t ramble any longer! I hope you have read this far, as it is thanks to you, our international friends in our worldwide community that so much help has been given to those in need.

2016 is going to be a super special year. So watch out for an announcement on the 4th of January to see what we mean!

Miranda, Silver, Phoebe and Dusty
