REMEMBERING OUR ANGELS SELFIES

by Janet Blue on August 28, 2016

Sunday Selfies: Week #107

 

Remembrance Day 8.28.2016 Angels

 

First, I must apologize: I promised a guest host for today, but I had forgotten that the 28th is reserved for Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. So, our guest will be here next week. This week we are featuring the nine Kitties Blue and one honorary Kitty Blue who have their angel wings. Each are featured on our The Felines page as well where you can read their short bios.

Here are the nine who came before.

 

Our nine angels.

 

Each had his or her own unique personality, and they all hold a special place in my heart. I will love them always. I have a little memorial for our angels in one of our backyard gardens, which I will share on another day.

And here is our honorary Kitty Blue, Nylablue, who is also a beautiful angel. We were so honored to have her as part of our family. Losing her was like losing one of my own kitties. She too is featured on The Felines page.

 

Angel Nylablue

 

We have lost many furry friends during the four years we have been blogging. You can see many of them on our Remembering Friends page. We think of them fondly everyday but especially today.

Cat4-001Though a bit unconventional, this is our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. Please feel free to include one of your angels in the hop this week if you like. This, of course, is not a requirement but rather an opportunity to share. As always the link to add your selfie and the code to include the hop on your blog are below. And also, as always, if you decide to do the latter, please include our badge or link back to The Cat on My Head. If you have any trouble linking up, leave us a comment. I am always happy to add your selfie.

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day was created by Deb Barnes (Zee and Zoey’s Cat Chronicles) in memory and honor of her kitty, Jazz. We are honored to display her badge at the beginning of our post. She too is having a blog hop today. Click on the link above to add your angel(s) to her hop.

Have a blessed Sunday as you remember those you have lost but will hold forever in your heart.

LISBETH IN LIVING COLOR

by Janet Blue on August 27, 2016

Caturday Art

Lisbeth claims she has not been getting enough face time on the blog, which is probably true. As I have written before, she is not the most sociable cat. But she is gorgeous and should have her fair share of blog time, especially as I know her boyfriend, Cat Scout Charles, enjoys seeing her.

To create Lisbeth’s arty photo, I used a custom filter in Dreamscope. Then I used the Boost feature in Picasa and added the borders using Picasa.

 

Lisbeth

 

Lisbeth is standing in front and to the right of the catmint plant. The photo taken was shortly after we bought the plant. Lisbeth had been browsing shortly before that. You can see that photo here. The plant was big then (just over three weeks ago), but now it is HUGE as you can see in this photo. It will soon be time to harvest.

Sunday Selfies 

Cat4-001Tomorrow is the day we all look forward to…Sunday, when we can take it easy. But we always post a selfie on our blog hop and look forward to all our friends doing the same. We will have a guest host tomorrow. You may have seen this critter previously, but you’ll need to return tomorrow to see who it is. We certainly appreciate everyone who enters each week. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.

SAMPY, MY ONE TRUE LOVE

August 25, 2016

Two days ago, Sampson (Kitty Cat Chronicles) and I celebrated the two month anniversary of our marriage. With that in mind, I asked Mom if I could write the poem for Sammy‘s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday. Our prompt letter for this week is “K.” Without unnecessary additional preamble here is my poem.  Ode to My Husband […]

PAWLYMPICS COME TO A CONCLUSION

August 23, 2016

TROPICAL STORM FIONA

August 20, 2016

Caturday Art The petretary (AKA Mom) thought I should be the representative for Caturday Art today. She had another of her harebrained ideas. She was going to try to turn me into some kind of storm-ravished feline. In case you missed the news, the most recent tropical storm in the Atlantic is named after me: […]

A ROCCO AND ROXIE REVIEW

August 18, 2016

While attending the BlogPaws Conference in Phoenix, I stopped by the Rocco and Roxie display to see what they had to offer. They make an excellent stain and odor eliminator, which I use. I discovered that they also make Jerky Sticks treats. The sticks are made for dogs, but I was told cats could eat […]
