Our Astrid does like herself some bling! When she and the love of her life, Sampson Hall, were married at the BlogPaws Conference last June, Sampy gave her an iridescent lavender collar. Attached were three slide-on charms: an S, a rhinestone heart and an A. At first I thought we might save the collar for special occasions, but as all the kitties wear their collars 24/7, Astrid has not had her collar off since she received it.

A couple of days ago, Astrid received a belated Valentine present from Sampy—two new charms. I wanted to get some photos that she could send to Sampy. Of course, Astrid decided to flaunt her tortitude and refused to look at me.

Though, she persisted in ignoring me, I finally was able to get a great photo of both her original and her new charms.

The new charms are the four-leaf clover and the peridot birthstone. Astrid’s birthday is in August. This is what Sampy wrote to Astrid: “The birthstone signifies my favorite month of the entire year – the month you were born. And the four-leaf clover signifies that you are my good luck charm for life. You must look so beautiful wearing all your bling.”

Astrid is praying that Sampy does think she looks beautiful.

I have linked to Astrid and Sampson’s wedding post (in the first paragraph) in case you missed it.

Giveaway Winner

Kitties Blue are excited to let you know that the winner of the Kooky Kittens Cat Massage Roller are Brian and the gang from Brian’s Home. With nine kitties in residence, we are certain that at least a few of them will enjoy being massaged. We suspect they’ll let everyone know about it after it arrives. For all of you who didn’t win, you can get your own massager from Kooky Kittens for just $9.95.

That’s all we have for you today. See you tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday. And you won’t want to miss our Thoroughly Poetic Thursday post. We know you will get a good laugh from it.

Sunday Selfies: Week #137

Yippee…Sunday Selfies and none of us had to snap a photo of ourself!

Today we have an extra special guest host. And here she is now.


Sunday Selfies with Charlotte


This is Charlotte, and we shared her with you once before. Charlotte is our current cat we sponsor at PAWS of Connecticut. After our sweet Swizzle was finally adopted, we had a bit of a problem getting another kitty to support. Every kitty we selected was quickly adopted. Finally, PAWS assigned Charlotte to us, and we couldn’t be happier. Isn’t she beautiful?

Though we gladly sponsor this gorgeous girl, our sincere wish is that she will find a loving and forever home sooner than later.

Charlotte is about three years old. She was a stray living on the streets with a litter of kittens. A kind lady started taking care of mom and kittens, but could not bring her into her home. Fearing Charlotte and the female kittens would become, pregnant, she took them to PAWS.

Though Charlotte is said to be shy, our friend and PAWS volunteer, Kevin (AKA meowmeowmans), says that she is sweet and gentle. She loves to be petted and brushed and will make air biscuits when her tummy is rubbed. She is good with other cats but timid around small children.

Charlotte is spayed, current on her vaccinations, microchipped and negative for FIV and FeLV.

If you or anyone you know would love to have this comely calico as a member of your family, please contact PAWS of Connecticut by clicking here or visiting them at 504 Main Ave, Norwalk, CT 06851. And please consider sponsoring a PAWS cat or a cat at your local shelter.

Cat4-001This is our Sunday Selfies blog hop. We are so grateful to all of you who join us every week and the newbies who join each week. We thought you all would tire of this by now, and some have. But the participation is still terrific. That always makes Kitties Blue purr.

The link to join the hop is below as is the code to add the hop to your blog post. We are happy to have you do this and only ask that you link back to The Cat on My Head and/or display our badge.
