Birthday Party Time

Astrid and Lisbeth were just kittens and the youngest of the Kitties Blue when I began The Cat on My Head. They turned one year old a month later. I thought it would be fun to share a few of the birthday cards I made for them in past years.

Here is their birthday card for this year.

If you are unfamiliar with Astrid and Lisbeth’s story, you can check it out on The Felines page by clicking the tab at the top of this page. The short version is that they were both born on August 17, 2011, but they are not related. They were, however, raised together along with Lisbeth’s littermates and Astrid’s brother, Bobby, by Lisbeth’s mother.

Cooper Murphy, of course, made them a special cake.


Lisbeth & Astrid's birthday cake feature a star and a crown.


Please join our birthday girls and all the Kitties Blue as we celebrate. We have the cake as well as shrimp, nip ice cream, champagne and berry ice tea.



Thanks for joining our celebration today.

Black Cat Appreciation Day

Before signing off, we’d like to give a shout out to all our black cat friends, as today is Black Cat Appreciation Day. Years ago we had two black cats, Thelma and Twinkle. I’ve wanted another black cat for many years, but it has just never happened. But I still appreciate their beauty. Best wishes to every black cat everywhere.
