Happy Gotcha Day Cooper Murphy

Six years ago today this very handsome, approximately 15-month-old, ginger tabby cat joined the Kitties Blue crew. If you don’t know his story, you can read the first installment here, “Ginger Tabby.”

Today that 14-pound cat is a whopping 20 pounds and the eldest of our three male felines.

We are honoring him today with a little celebration! Our wonderful baker, Angel Mau, sent a special cake via Angel Express. I’m not certain if this is cat imitating cake or cake imitating cat.

We also have nip ice cream and your choice of beverages. Please help yourselves and stay as long as you like.


Caturday Art

This being Caturday, we also have some art to share. Kitties Blue and I thought it appropriate that Cooper Murphy should get that honor as well.



Today’s art was created with the Paris effect from Painnt and a favpng frame.

Cooper Murphy will be joining Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art blog hop. You can do the same by clicking on Athena’s badge.

Puzzle Time

Cooper Murphy talked me into creating two puzzles for you today. How could I possibly turn him down? Hope you enjoy doing them.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

One of the Kitties Blue snapped a fabulous selfie of herself yesterday and will be here as your host tomorrow. That’s all the hint you are getting: It will me one of the six girls!

As I continue to struggle with this stupid email post notification plug-in, which actually sent a notification of a test post to one subscriber yesterday, I hope you’ll find a solution for yourself. You can bookmark our blog or add us to a reading list. As our followers quickly fall away, Kitties Blue and I sincerely thank those who have stopped by to visit. Your friendship means so much to us.

Have a happy Caturday!
