Happy 1000th

SAMMY

Almost 2 years ago, as mommy was reading her daily fill of User Friendly, her favorite computer geek comic, she saw a post on the daily message board there that The Mows was really funny that day. So she clicked on the link and our lives were changed forever. We enjoyed spending that night reading the past adventures of Tigey, Indy and Nonie. But, there was a link on the page that we keeped seeing that said "funny blog". So we clicked on it. And this is where we ended up. We spent the next week reading all the archives and all about Max and then we read Buddah's blog and we were hooked. After a couple of months, Mommy let us get our own blog and the rest is history. We haf meeted so many nice kitties and beans and even woofies, ratties and buns (especially our NOMSS fluffy Mrs Sniffles).



Yesterday was the Mows 1000th comic. Jay Dyke now has a Mows blog and you should all check it out. You can sign up to have the comic delivered to your email when it's published. You can add the blog to your feed readers too. Although the real Tigey and Indy have gone to the Bridge (and maybe Nonie too, they were all real and true littermates) and Jay has other kitties now, he is still telling the adventures of the original 3 Mows. And from yesterday's post, there will be wonderful exciting adventures coming up. If you have never read The Mows, you should. If we had never found The Mows, we would never have found Max, and we never would have blogged and we never would have met all of you! So, it's all Indy's fault!!!


Happy 1000th Mows!! We look forward to 1000 more adventures with you!



Question for all of you who read The Mows - who is your favorite Mow?

It would be a crying shame if you hadn't stumbled on Mows because we would never had met you and had our lives changed reading your hilarious adventures!

Tigey is my favourite. I still remember logging on one day to read the strip and seeing the page showing he had died. I was so sad about it and had only been reading the strip for a few weeks. Then the whole series showing his last days was so sad and beautiful at the same time.

Gemini said...

That's an amazing story. You know if we hadn't found you (from Kukka finding me) I wouldn't be blogging. Momma would be writing about me but not letting me tell my own stories.

Max said...

Wow...1000 for The mows? I LOVE THE MOWS!!!! It's one of the first places I check online every day.

The Woman loves Tigy the most and she cried real tears when the real Tigy went to the bridge...I like Indy a lot, and was really sad when I heard that he went to be with Tigy.

I wish the newspapers would get word of the sheer genius of the Mows, 'cause the whole world needs to know about them!

The Meowers from Missouri said...

we did it the ofur way 'round--max an' then the mows. we don't 'member (an' neifur does mom) how we found max. but yipyipyipyip! we're so glad we did, and thereby joined you, meezer-guys, an' all of the dear kitties inna blogosphere.

our favorite is tigey, an' our mom leaked furry badly all through the story of how he went to the bridge. now we're a little sad to find out that indy an' maybe nonie are gone too, but we're glad to know mr jay has still got kitties. he's a furry nice guy!
