Two tabby cats lying on a bed in the sun with a quote from Paramahansa Yogananda.


Audrey likes Sawyer and spends lots of time near him, especially when we all go to bed at night. Of course, this is during the day. I am always happy when our newbies make friends with the other Kitties Blue. I wanted a Spark about friendship, as my friends are so important to me. I like how this quote tells us how to be a friend.

The author of today’s Spark, Paramahansa Yogananda (1893 – 1952), was an Indian Hindu monk, yogi and guru. He introduced millions to the teachings of meditation and Kriya Yoga through his organization, Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF) / Yogoda Satsanga Society (YSS) of India. The last 32 years of his life were spent in America.

Sparks is the creation of Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend. Annie stated when she began Sparks, “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world.”

Sunday Selfies: Week #441

Today is one of three special days to celebrate tuxedo (tuxie) cats. I guess that speaks to how popular they are. This is Tuxedo Cat Appreciation Day.


And if one tuxie cat is good, then four must be GREAT! So today I am sharing selfies of our four tuxies, two angels and two current Kitties Blue. On the left are Daphne and Mau, and on the right are Lisbeth and Misty May. Dad Tom calls Lisbeth a cow cat, as she is more white than black, but that’s just how he sees her.


A collage of four photos of four different tuxedo (black and white) cats.


Just in case you missed the opportunity to honor your tuxie(s) today, here are the dates for the other two celebrations: September 9 is Tuxie Appreciation Day and November 29 is known as National Tuxedo Cat Day!

Remembering Emmy

As we often do on our Sunday Selfies posts, we’d like to remember a special friend who recently received her angel wings—Emmy from 15AndMeowing. Being a tuxie girl herself, this day is meant to celebrate her as well.



If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit Emmy’s human mom and dad, Ellen and David, click here to go to 15AndMeowing.

Hopping Time

Now it’s the time when you get to share your selfie with all of us as well as your other friends. You can link up below anytime now through Thursday. And thanks so much for joining us. Each of you are special, and we totally appreciate you being our friends and part of the hop.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday It’s Thursday, so that means it is time to participate in Angel Sammy and Teddy’s (Two Spoiled Cats) poetry challenge. My poem is total silliness, just like the inspiration photo. I did not include any of the Kitties Blue. I could picture them sitting among the stuffed animals but could not come […]

Caturday Art     Calista Jo was enjoying a sunpuddle in this photo. That seems to be a favorite Kitties Blue pastime recently! To create the art, I used the Wintering Vegetation effect from Painnt. I changed the hue of the original effect and increased the saturation. The frame is once again from favpng. And, […]
