Ten years ago today, Chives showed up in our backyard, and managed to somehow instantly ambush Ken’s heart. We couldn’t bear to leave him out in the rain, sitting in our chives plant. So, in he came, just for one night, mind you, because we couldn’t keep a cat. One night somehow had turned into ten years. Let’s take a look back on Chives first decade with us – one year at a time.
And please read the message following the tenth picture. We hope you’ll join us in celebrating Chives adoptaversary in a special, meaningful way. Oh, and if you’re not already following Chives’ Facebook page come on over and join the fun!

Chives has more toys than most kids, gets plenty to eat, and is given all the love and snuggles he can handle. But other cats in our neighborhood aren’t always so lucky. We know, as some of them have come to our house, hungry and frightened. Currently we’re helping this sweet girl, who we’ve named Lucy.
We encourage you to make a donation in honor of Chives to the Capital Area Humane Society in his neighborhood, or your local Humane Society or the equivalent organization in your own country.
If you choose to donate to the Capital Area Humane Society to help Lucy and other animals like her, please consider filling in this optional information on their donation form:
