As I pointed out earlier in the year in the Find Chey Flashback, our very first Find Chey winner was Karen Jo on April 26, 2008. Derby was an early winner several times over and Dragonheart and Merlin were wonderful about saying that they thought they had created a new astrological sign just for me!
Our beautiful friend Luxor found me when I was the sphinx. It would have been rather embarrassing if he hadn’t!
Some of our winners have either stopped blogging or crossed the rainbow bridge, Luxor, Dragonheart and Merlin Pyewacket, Skeeter, and LC (yes they blogged with Ayla), Fat Eric, and Boots and the Inerlopers.
Miss Peach was often a photo contributor and sometimes even a guest star! Eric and Flynn also contributed a number of photos and were the contributor of one of the few where I was never found! They were also guest stars on their own as well!
Ping, Cory, Gandalf and Grayson, Skeezix, (who won so consistently for awhile that we started calling it Skeezix Sunday) Ayla and family (which changed over the years), Jeter Harris, Camie’s Kitties, Maobert (who may have been helped by Skeezix), Sophia, Fi and Lando(who inspired the whole thing when DKM would go traveling and have a guess where she is post), the Island Cats, Laila and Minchie
‘Kaika became so good at this that he started getting called Smarty Pants ‘Kaika by Mao when Mao would come by! Another sleuth, who turns out to be cat 007, Simba found me so often and had so much fun, he started blogging! Another non blogging cat Netti has found me a few times too!
China Cat, Black Cat, , Victor Tabby Cat, Parker,Mr Echo, Roxy and Lucky, TK, Pixel and Samba, Max and Artemisia, Socks and Scylla have all found me on occasion. Surprisingly the Meezers get mentioned frequently but have only been ONCE!.
I’m thrilled and amazed at all the cats who have come by over the years–and awed at how long this has gone on, seeing that cats still seem to enjoy finding me! Oh if you wonder why I look annoyed in the photo–it’s because the Woman is gone and she did not bring a computer with any photos that she took so this is one that the Male took of me! Can you imagine?
