Meet Dash Kitten – our history
Dash Kitten had a mission. I cannot bring myself to take it down. I present it here to honour our lost boy. The blog mission evolves but this initial statement lies close to my heart.
Dash’s Mission Statement :-
Hello everyone. My name is Dash Kitten, (yeah I am grown up now, but Mum never broke the habit!) I moved over to WordPress from Blogger and am now settled in nicely thanks to the support of friends on Twitter and at Blogpaws®. I have micro-opthalmia but in spite of this manage to keep Mum on her toes and most of my siblings in line. Younger sisfur Miranda writes our Shopping Saturday post – always worth a look for the variety of items her magpie mind discovers.
I try to cover small technical items, animal action and things that affect the anipal community at large. I have attended the Blogpawsconference as Flat Dash thanks to Twitter friend @Pumpkinpuddy and mum hopes to attend in person one day. The family lives at the centre of Middle Earth, also knows as New Zealand, and our nearest big town is Wellington. This is a fabulous country and as a proud member of the #wlf I patrol, as an outside cat, my local area with diligence and care.
