International Cat Day


Awww Mondays/International Cat Day


krazy kittens, brown tabby on LOVE shaped scratcher, grey cat checking her out and orange tabby kitten looking on.


The seven older Kitties Blue have been getting to know Audrey and Raleigh through the mesh of the kitten enclosure. Yesterday, however, Audrey ventured outside a bit, and Kizmet made a brief trip inside. If you look closely, you can see Raleigh’s head in the little orange tent behind Kizmet. He is a bit more timid than his sister.

The kittens also got to try out their harnesses for the first time yesterday. They have been wearing collars for the past week, which they haven’t seemed to mind. They seemed perfectly content in the harnesses as well. I am hoping to get them comfortable enough to go outside on leashes for some walks, adventures and exploration.

Kizmet and the kittens are taking part in the Awww Mondays blog hop hosted by Comedy Plus. You can join them there by clicking on the Awww badge.



Sunflowers with a bee on the largest and a quote from Luther Burbank: Flowers always make people better, happier & more helpful; they are sunshine, food & medicine for the soul.


Dad Tom took this beautiful photo of sunflowers growing in a pot in our backyard. Did you notice the bee on the right side of the largest sunflower?

I wanted a Spark that would compliment the flowers and found this one from Luther Burbank. (An interesting fact with reference to Luther Burbank: We were both born on March 7, exactly 100 years apart.)

The sunflowers remind me we still need to pray for and support the Ukranians.

Sparks is the creation of Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend. Annie stated when she began Sparks, “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world.”

The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky

Your favorite cartoon tabbies, Periwinkle and Stinky, are ready for their next adventure. These two comical and fun-loving youngsters visit all types of interesting places and have oodles of fun when they’re together. One of the best things is that they enjoy taking you along with them. Please plan to meet them tomorrow at Friends Furever for their next adventure!




Sunday Selfies: Week #364 


International Cat Day Selfie


So…I am settling back into my normal routine here at home, as evidenced by the next photo.


International Cat Day Nap


Mom took this photo of me curled up against her leg shortly after I snapped my selfie. I have been snuggling with her every night and allowing head kisses. I am no longer angry with her, as long as she keeps her grabby hands off me.

Do you think Noelle will like my toe beans? I really hope she won’t mind that Cooper Murphy snagged my birthday gift blanket before I could. Needless to say, we all like it bunches!

Anyhoo, today is International Cat Day. It was created in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare. The intent for the day is to raise awareness for cats and learn about ways to help and protect them. In 2020 custodianship of International Cat Day passed to International Cat Care, a not-for-profit British organization striving to improve the health and welfare of domestic cats worldwide since 1958.

Suggestions for participating in the festivities of the day include adopting/fostering a new kitty, feeding feral cats or spoiling those kitties living with you. That final suggestion is the one for which we are purraying! I think some extra treats are in order.

Hopping Time

Now for the fun part of your Sunday. Time for you to snap a selfie and share it with us and all your other friends and admirers. Then you can spend the remainder of your day enjoying a well-deserved easy and sunpuddle nap.


Purrs and paw-pats, Sawyer (with whisker kisses for Noelle)
