Kitties Blue know how to tell time. Their tummy clocks go off when it is time to eat. But they cannot tell one day from the next. So, when I old Misty May that her birthday is this Wednesday, she gladly accepted that information and passed it on to you. Unfortunately, I was wrong, which has prompted today’s Spark.

There are two birthdays this week, but neither belong to Misty May. Her birthday is next month. On Wednesday we will be celebrating and having a party, but it will be for Astrid and Lisbeth who will be turning 11. 

We will not be having a comment-a-thon. I am saving that for Misty May’s birthday on September 17. 

I’d like to thank Angel Charles’ mom, Inge, and Angel Mau’s mom-in-law, Sharon, for catching my mistake and setting me straight.

The author of today’s Spark, William Arthur Ward, was an American motivational writer with 100+ articles, poems and meditations written and published in such magazines as Reader’s Digest.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie is taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Many of us still continue to post a Spark on Monday, as we believe in Annie’s vision: “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

This fun-loving, tabby duo will return tomorrow with the next installment in their adventure series. It is Stinky’s week to plan and post their adventure, so look for them right here tomorrow. I know both Periwinkle and Stinky will be looking forward to seeing all of you.

Sunday Selfies: Week #417


Portrait of a black and white (tuxedo cat) in a black and white polka dot frame with a butterfly.


I hope you don’t mind seeing me today. I know those kittens are super cute, but this blog was named for me after all. And I certainly don’t get many opportunities to be featured. I actually asked to take the selfie today and be your host, so I could invite you to my birthday party on Wednesday. I will be turning 18. Only two Kitties Blue (Daphne and Lily Olivia) have lived to be older than I am now. Of course, Daphne passed away before Mom started our blog. You can find out more about her by clicking on The Felines tab at the top of the page.

Anyhoo, to celebrate my birthday as well as that of my angel brofur, Mau, Mom said I could have a comment-a-thon. We haven’t had one in ages, so I am super excited I will get to host it. So, please remember to come back on Wednesday to party with me and all the other Kitties Blue. If you leave a comment, you might be selected by random drawing to choose where we send our donation.

Hopping Time

Now that I’ve filled you in on my plans for Wednesday, I sure hope you’ll join today’s hop. It’s easy and fun. Just snap a quick selfie and enter the link to your post below. You don’t even need to post today. The hop remains open through Thursday. I am looking forward to seeing your adorable faces.

If you have trouble entering your link for any reason, let us know in the comments. My mom can help you join the hop.

Thanks for being our friends, followers and supporters.

Purrs and paw-pats, Misty May

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday Kizmet and I are here today to share a poem. I went a couple weeks without writing a poem, and last week I did not include any of the Kitties Blue. So, this week I am happy to have had the opportunity to add Kizmet to Angel Sammy and Teddy’s (Two Spoiled […]

Awww Mondays/International Cat Day     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 […]

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 […]

Caturday Art With apologies to our friends over in Trout Towne, we present today’s art.     Hummingbirds come to our area as early as April, but they don’t seem to get to our yard until July. Currently we have two females coming to the feeder, the one in the photo and another about half […]
