Awww Mondays/International Cat Day


krazy kittens, brown tabby on LOVE shaped scratcher, grey cat checking her out and orange tabby kitten looking on.


The seven older Kitties Blue have been getting to know Audrey and Raleigh through the mesh of the kitten enclosure. Yesterday, however, Audrey ventured outside a bit, and Kizmet made a brief trip inside. If you look closely, you can see Raleigh’s head in the little orange tent behind Kizmet. He is a bit more timid than his sister.

The kittens also got to try out their harnesses for the first time yesterday. They have been wearing collars for the past week, which they haven’t seemed to mind. They seemed perfectly content in the harnesses as well. I am hoping to get them comfortable enough to go outside on leashes for some walks, adventures and exploration.

Kizmet and the kittens are taking part in the Awww Mondays blog hop hosted by Comedy Plus. You can join them there by clicking on the Awww badge.



Sunflowers with a bee on the largest and a quote from Luther Burbank: Flowers always make people better, happier & more helpful; they are sunshine, food & medicine for the soul.


Dad Tom took this beautiful photo of sunflowers growing in a pot in our backyard. Did you notice the bee on the right side of the largest sunflower?

I wanted a Spark that would compliment the flowers and found this one from Luther Burbank. (An interesting fact with reference to Luther Burbank: We were both born on March 7, exactly 100 years apart.)

The sunflowers remind me we still need to pray for and support the Ukranians.

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.”

The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky

Your favorite cartoon tabbies, Periwinkle and Stinky, are ready for their next adventure. These two comical and fun-loving youngsters visit all types of interesting places and have oodles of fun when they’re together. One of the best things is that they enjoy taking you along with them. Please plan to meet them tomorrow at Friends Furever for their next adventure!

Sunday Selfies: Week #416



I haven’t had a selfie in several weeks, so I am particularly happy to see all of you. You may not think that’s the case by the serious look on my face. But for those of you who know me well, you know I usually look either grumpy or serious.

Things have been going great for me. If you read our Thankful Thursday post, you know that as of then I hadn’t had a seizure in seven weeks, and my streak continues. I have been doing a better job of eating my medicated noms, which is probably the reason I am doing so well. And I know all the prayers and support I get help as well. Thank you!

Time to Hop

Now that I have shared my selfie with you, which I sure hope my girlfriend Noelle likes, it’s time for you to share yours with me, my housemates and all your other friends.

If you are enjoying a nice easy Sunday with your family and don’t want to be bothered with a selfie, you can join the hop through Thursday. And you don’t even have to post today to join.

On behalf of Mom and all the Kitties Blue, thanks for being our friends, supporters, followers and hoppers.

Purrs & paw-pats, Sawyer (with love to Noelle)

Audrey & Raleigh Stinky paces by the teleportation tunnel awaiting Periwinkle’s arrival. He’s always anxious and excited to see her. Finally he hears the familiar whoosh and notices the new kittens, Raleigh and Audrey, almost jump right out of their furs. He hadn’t thought about their enclosure sitting near the tunnel. Stinky grabs Periwinkle as […]

Sparks   I was searching for a Spark about compassion when I happened upon this quote from Robert Wagner. I totally agree with him. Calista Jo, Audrey and Raleigh are here to present our Spark. The kittens are in Cooper Murphy’s tent he won at Cat Scouts. It is our transport system and their temporary […]

Sunday Selfies: Week 415 If you came by today looking for those pesky little kittens, they aren’t here. I’ll admit they are cute, but so am I. Unfortunately, I refused to take my eyes off the interlopers long enough to take a proper selfie. What I have for you is a profile, and it’s a […]

Feline/Friendship Friday Your newest feline friends are back today for the Friday blog hops. They had their first vet visit today, and they were totally “chill” about it. They didn’t even make a peep in the car on the way to or from.     Number 1 (on the left) weighed in at 2.52 pounds, […]
