Ginger Cat Appreciation Day


Feline Friday

It’s Raleigh’s turn to entertain you with a quartet of photos. And what could be more appropriate on Ginger Cat Appreciation Day than a ginger cat. He admits that he is not as gingery as Cooper Murphy, but he thinks as the newbie he deserves the honor of representing Kitties Blue this year. One thing Raleigh has that Coop doesn’t are actual ginger-colored eyes. If you enlarge the photos a bit, you should be able to see them.

Friendly Fill-Ins

The Friendly Fill-Ins blog hop is hosted each Friday by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (Four-Legged Furballs). The sentences to be filled in can be found on their blogs each Thursday. To join the hop, click on the badge at the left.

The Fill-Ins are always easier to complete when I get help from one or more of the Kitties Blue, but today I did them all by myself. I used teal italics for my completions.

1. A non-monetary prize I would like to win is a Muse Medallion from the Cat Writers’ Association.

2. If I won tickets to a rap or hip hop concert, I would give them away.

3. I think that those who abuse or abandon animals should be fined and serve time in jail.

4. When it comes to telling stories, I like telling ones about Periwinkle & Stinky to our readers.

Thanks for stopping in to see us today. Kitties Blue and I really appreciate it. We’ll be back tomorrow with some Caturday Art.





Friendly Fill-Ins

This week our fill-ins are filled with apologies. It seems my brain is a little fuzzy, and I have not been remembering things I should. I also had to ask for help again, and I am grateful Sawyer (and Stinky) once again stepped up to assist. We all used teal italics for our fill-ins, and explanatory information is in parentheses.

1. Sawyer & Stinky: I am not always so forgetful and inconsiderate. (Yesterday was Friends Furever’s, Noelle and Periwinkle’s, birthdays, and we blew it…no cards and no gifts! Yikes! So, today, we at least have a card.)
forgetfulness & forgiveness: birthday card with bouquet of pink while and purply flowers as a birth card for a great tabby cat waring a pink flower and a grey cartoon tabby cat wearing a purple flower


1. Mom Janet: I am not always so forgetful and inconsiderate. (Yesterday was Ginger Cat Appreciation Day, and I did nothing for my boys [though, I did post something on Instagram], Cooper Murphy and Raleigh. I am pretty ashamed of myself and hope they will forgive me.)

Our friend Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats) was the representative for Ginger Cat Appreciation Day, which makes me even more embarrassed at forgetting it.
2. I refuse to eat okra and a bunch of other stuff.
3. Sawyer: I would happily accept a job offer at The Temptations factory.
4. Acrobat is a job I could never do.

Feline/Friendship Friday

Kitties Blue also will be participating in the Feline Friday (Comedy Plus) and Friendship Friday (Create With Joy) blog hops.


If I can remember what day it is, we’ll be back tomorrow with some Caturday Art!




Belated Birthday Wishes

Yesterday was special for two reasons, and we missed both so are making up for it today.

Most importantly, we missed Noelle’s/Periwinkle’s third birthday. If you missed it as well, you can read all about it by visiting “The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky” on yesterday’s post at Friends Furever. Today, Stinky/Sawyer have a special card for these sweet girls.



Belated Ginger Cat Appreciation Day

Yesterday also was the special day to recognize ginger cats. Personally, we have a huge appreciation for gingers everyday so feel particularly bad about missing their special celebration.

Here’s a special graphic for our angel ginger, MacKenzie, and our current ginger, Cooper Murphy.



Wishing all our ginger friends a belated happy Ginger Cat Appreciation day.

Though we are far from wordless, Kitties Blue are joining the Wordless Wednesday blog hop at Comedy Plus.



Sunday Selfies: Week #264

Ginger Cat Appreciation DayI had absolutely no idea Ginger Cat Appreciation Day existed until my friend and fellow ginger, Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats), let me know a couple of days ago. I think it’s terrific that we have our very own day. Everyone knows, however, that ginger cats are appreciated every day, as we are special. Okay, all cats are special, but you’ll have to admit ginger cats are amazingly adorable.

I’ll stop babbling now, as I know you came to see not listen to me.



I am sorry my eyes are so dark. I unfortunately didn’t have them fully open when I snapped this.

We have lots of ginger friends who join our hop every week and a few that have their wings. I am not going to list them for fear of forgetting one or more. But Kitties Blue and I do wish each and every ginger cat a day filled with love and cuddles and extra treats.

Time to Hop

We hope all our ginger friends will hop with us, but you don’t need to be a ginger to hop or even a cat. Here’s those hopping tips Mom likes us to include.

  • The link to add your selfie to the hop is below.
  • You also will find below the code to use if you’d like the hop to appear on your blog.
  • Posting on Sundays is not necessary to join.
  • You do not need to be a cat to enter. All anipals are welcome regardless of species.
  • The hop remains open for entries through Thursday midnight.
  • Please be so kind as to display our badge and/or link to The Cat on My Head.
  • Take the opportunity to visit some of the other hop-alongs and make some new friends or reconnect with some old ones.

Thanks for joining us and supporting our blog hop. If this is your first time here, welcome. Kitties Blue and I hope you return often.

Sparks & a Remembrance

On Mondays we like to post an inspirational or motivational quote to help you start your week on a note of positivity. We will be doing that tomorrow, but we also will take the opportunity to remember a friend who got his wings recently. Caster from Kitty Cat Chronicles, who had been suffering from an unidentifiable illness for several months, passed away about ten days ago. Normally we remember kitty friends on Sunday, but this being a special day for gingers, we did not want our remembrance of Caster to be over-shadowed.

If you were unaware of Caster’s passing, please visit Kitty Cat Chronicles and leave your condolences.

Thank you.

Purrs and paw-pats, Cooper Murphy
