Happiness Tag


Sunday Selfies:Week #456

Today’s guest host is one of our resident squirrels. This is the look he gave Dad Tom when he was late filling the bird feeders.

He’s sharing a second photo today showing off his acrobatic prowess once the feeders were full.

Mr. Squirrel had a demand prior to agreeing to share his photos. He ordered me to create a puzzle of him showing off his acrobatics. Hope you enjoy completing it.

Hopping Time

Kitties Blue are hopping with happiness, as they dodged, for the second week in a row, having to take any selfies. They hope those of you who visit will not be too disappointed that they are taking another week off. One of them will be here tomorrow for Awww Mondays.

Since today is Mother’s Day, we know many of you will be busy celebrating your moms by giving them extra love, cuddles and purrs. So, we’ll understand if you can’t get here today. The hop remains open through Thursday.

Thank you for being our followers and friends.


🌸 Happy Mother’s Day 🌸 




A couple of weeks ago our friends, The Canadian Cats Shoko and Kali nominated us for the Happiness Tag. We are happy to accept and sincerely thank Kali and Shoko for selecting us as a blog that makes them happy. In accepting we have some responsibilities.

List five things that make us happy:

1. Vacationing on the island of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands

Tortola -  Happiness Tag


2. Family: Tom and kitties
3. Cycling and Swimming
4. Friends: both personal and blogging
5. Catio (Kitties Blue choice)


Happiness Tag - catio


Name five favorite songs that make us happy:

This was very difficult. So many songs make me happy, and some of my favorite make me melancholy and nostalgic. I love some of those just as much, but these five always make me happy.

California Girls – Beach Boys

In Your Arms – Quito Rymer


Happiness Tag - Quito


Young Turks – Rod Stewart

Whenever God Shines His Light – Van Morrison

You Never Can Tell – Aaron Neville


Admit to adoring five bloggers who make us happy and notify those bloggers:

All the blogs we read and follow make us happy, which made it particularly difficult to select just five. But it should be evident why we have selected these five.

Friends Furever – The blog of Mauricio’s wife, Allie, (and housemates Ellie and Raz)

Happiness Tag -   SampsonKitty Cat Chronicles – The blog of Astrid’s husband, Sampson, (as well as five other kitties, dog Lucy and the Sugar Gliders)

We are tagging these five blogs to complete the Happiness Tag challenge and hope each will accept and complete the task of naming those things which make them happy.

Once again, the kitties and I want to express our gratitude to Kali and Shoko for selecting us for the Happiness Tag!
