Kitties Blue

Mom and Kate, sporting their cat ears.

Cat Style Lounge 

We kitties barely finished cleaning up the house before our humans got home from the BlogPaws Conference on Sunday evening. We were happy to have them home but sorry to see our five-day nip and treat party come to an end. Well, that was the case right up until the moment the swag bags started piling up and the most magnificent cat tower we’d ever seen came through the front door.

One of the best things about the BlogPaws Conference, according to our mom, is the Cat Style Lounge. It is packed with all the newest products available for kitties. And it is all provided by one of mom’s very favorite people, Kate Benjamin, of Hauspanther. At the conclusion of the Conference Kate gives away every item in the Lounge.

Mom and Dad have brought home some cool “goodies” previously, but this year they hit the jackpot. Check us out enjoying the Sauder Natural Sphere Cat Tower featuring a banana leaf sphere perched on top of a three-legged base standing 44″ tall.


Kitties inspect new tower.

Cooper Murphy was the first to check out the sphere as Mau looked on from the lower platform.

Cooper Murphy shows the other kitties how to get in and out of tower.

Mau is second of the kitties to investigate the tower sphere.

Astrid finds the sphere quite comfy.




The sphere has both a front and a top opening and a washable cushion on the inside, making it the purrfect spot for napping. One leg is wrapped with sisal for scratching and the raised bottom platform is carpeted for lounging. If you think this looks like something you’d enjoy, you can find it at Amazon.

Kate told Mom that we’d probably need another platform to use as a step up into the sphere. But the three of us who have been checking it out have leapt right up from the floor. Easy Peasy!

We are anxious to see what else Mom and Dad brought home, but we know nothing can beat this. “Thank you, Kate, for this most amazing prize. You are the cat’s meow!”

Mom will be sharing a variety of photos from the BlogPaws Conference tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday.

Sunday Selfies: WEEK #145



Today’s selfie is a bit unconventional. I know you recognize this sweet little face. If not, here is the my beautiful angel, Fiona.



This is short tonight as I am still at the BlogPaws Conference.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Angel Fiona as well as the face of the precious mini, felted Fiona Emily made for me.

This is our weekly blog hop, and we are looking forward to you sharing your selfies with us. If you do not normally post on Sundays, but would like to join in, the hop remains open through Thursday. All anipals regardless of species are always welcome to join in the hop.

The link to add your selfie is below as is the code to add the blog hop to your post if you’d like. If you do so, we’d appreciate it if you can add our badge or a link back to The Cat on My Head, so your readers know where the hop originated.

Thanks for hopping!

Caturday Art I suspect I’ll pay dearly for this post when I get home. I most likely will be getting the cold shoulder and silent treatment all around. Did I hear you ask, “Why?” I’ll let you see for yourselves.     Can you tell what the problem is? This cat may look a bit […]

Friendly Friday Fill-Ins: Week #54 1. I have googled anything and everything for which I’ve needed an explanation or answer. It sure beats having to go to the library to check an encyclopedia, like I had to when I was a kid. 2. I have purchased many things on Ebay, including a replacement wedding ring for Tom after he lost his […]

Thoroughly Poetic & Thankful Thursday Writing poetry is hard. Though I write about half the poetry that appears on this blog, sometimes it makes my brain hurt. This week my rhyming mojo is just plain missing. So, I am apologizing now if this week’s offering makes you feel like hissing. The prompt letter for this […]

Recommendation for The Cat on My Head I was delightfully surprised when I was contacted by the Best for The Kids web-site representative and asked if they could include our blog on their list of the 16 best cat blogs for kids. The Kitties Blue and I have always considered The Cat on My Head a […]

Caturday Art I am the guardian of any unopened box, especially when I sense something for us kitties is waiting inside. Sometimes that job becomes totally boring, as those boxes don’t always get opened right away. This particular box from Amazon came on Thursday, and I spent the entire day and a good portion of the […]
