by Janet Blue on August 16, 2015

As I announced yesterday, Astrid and Lisbeth will celebrate their fourth birthdays tomorrow. We usually do not post on Mondays, so they are celebrating today by hosting Sunday Selfies with fancy, birthday photos.


Lisbeth and Astrid shortly after joining the Kitties Blue household.

Though the girls are not related, they were raised together in foster care by Lisbeth’s mom, Tuxie. Astrid and her brother Bobby were found abandoned on a roof and eventually placed with Tuxie. I discovered Astrid (Tabitha) on PetFinder. When Tom and I went to meet her, we also met Lisbeth (Cary) and several other kittens. At the time, Tabitha and Cary were closely bonded, and so we adopted them together.

As I have shared in other posts, the two of them no longer care for each other. We really have no idea exactly how or when this happened. It saddens us as they were so precious together.

Rumor has it that the girls are going to be getting some pretty terrific birthday gifts, one from me and one from their dad. I will reveal these and their reactions in a future post.

Sunday Selfies Week #53

In celebration of their birthdays, I have helped Astrid and Lisbeth decorate their selfies for today’s blog hop. They hope you will consider decorating your selfie in a celebratory manner as well. This, of course, is not a requirement in order to join the hop.





All Kitties Blue and I would like to thank everyone who has joined our blog hop or visited our site during the past year of Sunday Selfies. As we begin year two, it would give us great pleasure if you would continue to support and join us as well as invite your friends. As you know, critters of all species are welcome and encouraged to join. We do not discriminate against those who are different than we are but embrace the opportunity to make new friends.


If you have difficulty adding your link, leave us a comment with that info, and I will do my best to add it for you. If you want to add the hop photos to your blog, the code is below. You need to add it in the text window of your post. If you should decide to do this, please link to The Cat on My Head and/or display our Sunday Selfies badge.

They Call Me Destiny Giveaway

Our giveaway for a copy of the book, They Call Me Destiny by Fern Field Brooks continues. If you’d like the opportunity to win and haven’t as yet left a comment, you can do so here.

Have a great Easy Sunday.

Happy Birthday Astrid and Lisbeth. I am sorry I haven’t joined you this week. It is my mum’s fault. She used her birthday as an excuse to desert me all day yesterday and then she didn’t come home until nearly light o’clock. As if that wasn’t bad enough, then she didn’t get out of bed until late today.

Many Happy Feturns Astrid and Losbeth. We adopted a brother and sister also very bonded but by year two they no longer slept curled with each other and stopped washing each other’s face. Tasha, tortie female, began hissing at her brother Boris. It was so sad. Hay Savvy joined to celebrate your special day

Happy birthday girls! It’s great to meet you, I have a kitty brofur named Rhette that you’ve already met. I am so excited about joining #SundaySelfies thanks for being all inclusive.

It’s too bad you don’t get along any more. Mom had two cats like that, Peaches and Herb. They were quite close early on but most likely due to all of Peaches’ emergency illnesses, surgeries, resulting in lots of attention from mom may have put Herb off of her some. Who knows. Cats! Love Dolly

What a fun Sunday Selfies day! Lisbeth and Astrid, you two were so adorable. And you are both so very gorgeous now! Sampy is excited to be celebrating his beloved Astrid’s birthday tomorrow and has a gift for her, though he doesn’t think it will be getting to her by tomorrow. He apologizes for that, but wants Astrid to know that he is thinking of her and misses her and is sending a kiss for every birthday that’s ever happened to anyone!!!
We are all sending lots of love and hugs too, especially to the birthday girls.
Happy Birthday, Lisbeth and Astrid!!!
