National Tabby Day


Sunday Selfies: Week #298

Welcome to the Sunday Selfies blog hop. I visit Kitties Blue yard often to eat sunflower seeds and plants. It’s an honor to be asked to host this week’s hop! I hope you don’t mind that I only took a profile selfie.



Besides the hop, some other things are going on today, and the Blue crew asked me to share these with you prior to inviting you to hop.

Purrs & Prayers Please

A very dear friend is in the hospital and needs prayers from the humans, purrs from all the kitties and POTP from all our anipal friends.



It hurts our hearts that Dad Terry’s heart is hurting, and we really want him to get better quickly and rejoin his family.

Remembering Zoey

Dearest Ann from Zoolatry made the badge above for Terry. But Ann also needs our purrs and prayers as she grieves for her unique and beautiful Zoey who received her wings and flew off to the bridge on April 18.



Zoey was a frequent participant in our Sunday Selfies Hop. Run free sweet girl. We will miss you.

We are fairly certain all of you have left your condolences for Ann, but if not, please click Zoey’s photo.

Hopping Time

Okie dokie…it’s finally time to share your selfies and hop with us. Your friends and all the Kitties Blue look forward to seeing your smiling faces each week. You don’t even need to post on Sunday to join us, so please add your link below.

Remember to keep your families safe and healthy. That nasty virus is still infecting and killing people, and we do not want any of you to lose your precious human(s). And we don’t want to lose any friends.


Wordy Wednesday

Yesterday mid-morning I found out that it was National Tabby Cat Day. I usually don’t post on Tuesdays and I was on my way out, so I made the decision not to write a quick post. Of course, tabbies, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer, had a lot to say about the decision. None of it nice! For a youngster, Sawyer certainly knows a lot of bad words. Yeeesh!

To appease the complainers, we are celebrating National Tabby Cat Day a day late. Though this post is far from wordless, we will be entering the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hops.

This photo of Sawyer was taken yesterday. The top cup on the new cat tree is his go-to snoozing spot now.

Cooper Murphy’s photo is from a few days ago when he was napping on our bad.

Like all kitties, these two are champion cat nappers.

As many of you know, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer are not the first tabbies to be members of the Kitties Blue crew. The other three lived with us prior to the debut of The Cat on My Head. Nonetheless, Cooper and Sawyer thought it would be nice to feature them here as well.

From top to bottom:

Skooter (brown tabby and white) – Cat #1
Steamer (brown tabby) – Cat #2
MacKenzie (the original ginger tabby) – Cat #10

If you are unfamiliar with these or any of the Kitties Blue, you can read about them on The Felines page.





Sparks: Week #30


A Spark of Love from Tabby cats.


My reason for selecting this quote for today’s Spark was prompted by yesterday’s post and Allie and Mau’s love for each other. And with today being National Tabby Day, it seemed appropriate to share this photo of Sawyer and Cooper Murphy. They are best friends and obviously love each other.

I apologize for the fuzzy photo, and hope you can overlook that.

I always like to tell you a little something about the author of the quote. According to Chinese tradition, Lao Tzu (often simply referred to as Laozi) was a 6th century BCE mystic philosopher. He is best known as the author of the Tao Te Ching. This association has led him to be traditionally considered the founder of Taoism. He also is revered as a deity in most religious forms of the Taoist religion. Laos, translated literally from Chinese, means “old master” or “old one,” and is generally considered honorific.

Sawyer, Cooper Murphy and I are joining Annie at McGufffy’s Reader for her Sparks blog hop. In establishing the hop, Annie wrote, “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!” 

This is what makes Sparks so special and why I look forward to participating each week.

Tabby Cat Club

Sawyer and Cooper Murphy are members of the Tabby Cat Club and will be celebrating National Tabby Day there. If you are a tabby and a member, they’ll see you there. And if you’re a tabby and don’t belong, stop by and check out the fun.
