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.


Collage of past birthday cards celebrating birthday of Astrid (tortoise shell cat) and Lisbeth (tuxie cat).


Here is their birthday card for this year.


2022 birthday card celebrating Astrid (tortie) and Lisbeth (tuxie cat).


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.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

Cooper Murphy did a great job on that cake and I ate lots of shrimp and drank some of the champagne.

Have a fabulous day and rest of the week. Scritches all around, a smooch to Cooper Murphy and Sawyer and a big hug to your mom. ♥

A most special HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Lisbeth and Astrid. We also wish black kitties everywhere a happy Black Cat Appreciation Day. Cats are special in so many ways and we are glad that YOUR Mom and Dad think so just like MY Mom and Dad do. A life with out a cat is just plain boring….(haha). What a lovely party – I’ll have a snack or two and wish you again a wonderful and fun-filled birthday ladies!

Hugs, Teddy
