Toesy Tuesday


Tabby Toesie Tuesday at TCC

Today I am supporting my little brofur, Sawyer, and his friend, Noelle (Friends Furever). They are hosting a special event at Tabby Cat Club: Tabby Toesie Tuesday. As I am also a member of this exclusive club, I am honored to join all the other tabbies showing off their toesies.


Cooper's Tabby Toesies


I may not be showing off all of my toesies in this photo, but I think you can see how terrific they are. After all, I wouldn’t want to share anything but my very best. Besides, look what I am competing with. This kid might be half my size, but he’s got some pretty magnificent toesies. Don’t you agree?


Sawyer's Tabby Toesies


If you are a tabby cat, Sawyer and Noelle would appreciate you joining their toesie fest. If you aren’t a tabby, you can still drop in at the Tabby Cat Club and check out the meowvolous toesies on display. Just click the badge below to go there now.



Purrs and paw-pats, Cooper Murphy




I know I have shared in the past that I have a friend in California who sends me motivational quotes. I’ve used one or two in the past and am doing so again today.




Even if we choose happiness, it is sometimes difficult to achieve. I am mostly happy; though, this past year has brought us some major challenges. Consequently, I plan to remind myself often of this quote from Voltaire.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie has been taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Unfortunately, during this break, Annie has been the victim of a hacker. This has continued to keep her off-line and caused her much distress. Please continue to send prayers to Annie and her family as they work to get their lives back to normal.

Many of us believe in Annie’s vision: “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!”

Awww Mondays

We cannot miss joining this fun blog hop hosted each Monday by Sandee at Comedy Plus. Calista Jo is today’s participant. We’ve had a new cat tree in the basement waiting for the addition to be completed. Dad Tom moved it in on Sunday, and C.J. was the first to check it out. (Sorry the photo is so blurry.)

Another Toesy Tuesday Doozy of a Snoozy 


Toesy Tuesday


Even when it is hot as Hades, Giulietta stuffs herself into the cubby at the bottom of the cat perch/condo on the stair landing. As you can see, she doesn’t quite fit. Often her tail and one or more feet escape the confines. At one time, she shared this small space with her sisfur Fiona.

As you can see, she managed to give me the stink-eye for disturbing her, even with only one eye opened just a fraction. Very talented cat!

Cooper Murphy - Toesy Tuesday Giveaway


Cooper Murphy does have some pretty sweet toesies. But, sorry, we’re not giving those away. All 32 Kitties Blue toes will be remaining attached.

What we do have for you is the opportunity to win a pair of socks similar to those below.



Do you recognize that handsome face? That’s right, it’s Mauricio!

How would you like to see the face of your kitty on a pair of your very own socks? Of course, you would. If you are a multi-cat family, as we are, your biggest problem will be deciding which of your felines to feature. Dad Tom selected Mau, as his face is distinctive and recognizable.

These cool socks are the creation of a new company, Our Sock, which was started by a Duke University student and his brother. Our sock is a no-minimum sock shop where anyone can buy their own pair of custom socks.

The socks come in blue, as shown, or pink. A polyester blend, necessary for printing, is used for the body of the sock.  The toes, heels and cuffs are hand sewn from cotton for added durability and comfort. The custom cat socks are one-size-fits-most. They stretch enough to fit almost all adult sizes (men and women).

I am wearing my socks right now and can attest to the comfiness. I also find them to be very supportive.


Now for the best news: Our Sock has given Kitties Blue the opportunity to give away ten pairs of custom cat socks to the readers of The Cat on My Head. I will be giving away one pair per day beginning today and for the following nine days. For the opportunity to win a pair for yourself, just leave a comment on this post and the following nine posts. I will be selecting one winner each day using

If you don’t win a pair, here’s the pricing information: One pair of socks is $24.99. Discounted pricing is available for large orders of custom cat socks. For two pairs of socks, the price is $22.50 per pair. (Use the discount code: KITTY2 at checkout.) For more than two pairs of socks, the price is just $17.50 per pair. (Use the promo code: KITTY3 during checkout).

Turnaround time is ten days, but my socks arrived more quickly.

To go to the Our Sock web-site where you can order, click here.

Don’t forget to leave a comment below for the opportunity to win a pair of customizable socks featuring your cat!

Disclaimer: I received one pair of customizable socks from Our Sock free of charge for the purpose of review. I also received promotional codes to give away ten additional pairs of customizable cat socks to the readers of The Cat on My Head. The opinions of the product presented here are solely my own.



What a terrific Tuesday it is when we can share a little bit of tabby tongue, toes, tummy and tail. Not having a tabby in the family since our sweet MacKenzie (another orange boy) left us in 2011, it is a treat to have this opportunity.

A call from another person hoping to claim Cooper Murphy as her lost cat had me in fear once again that we’d lose him. After much back and forth with phone calls and photos, and our trying to convince this lady that Cooper Murphy was not her three-year-old cat, Simba, she still asked to come see him. Before that could happen, she sent us a photo of Simba, pointing out that he has two freckles on his nose. (She could have started with that detail!) We sent an enlarged photo of Cooper Murphy’s freckleless nose to her. Another CATastrophe averted.

Check out these new photos of our catty cutie.


Cooper Murphy-2 - ginger tabby

Cooper Murphy-5 - ginger tabby


Not only can Cooper nap like a champ, but he also has mastered waving and giving a razzleberry at the same time. Crockett (Lone Star Cats) better watch out. He could have some competition from the new kid when it comes to his signature tongue displays.

Please feel free to squeee or snorgle at will!

I want all these people who have lost their precious, ginger tabbies to find them, but not at our expense of losing our new best friend and family member. He is the perfect addition to the Kitties Blue gang, and we have fallen in love.

Today is Change a Pet’s Life Day? We hope we did that for Cooper Murphy.

Thank you, Fiona, for guiding this blessing to us.



Tortie Tuesday Doozy of a Snoozy with Tummy, Toesies and Tail


tummy, toes and tail


As the title indicates, I managed to cover all my bases with this one photo! This is my favorite place and preferred position for snoozing, which means I often show off all my essential parts, tummy, toesies and tail. Oops! I just realized my toofies and tongue are missing. MOUSES! Dang, I may have failed, but I’m still cute. Right?

Anyhoo, if you didn’t know, this nice, fleecy blankie belongs to Mauricio. It was a gift from Allie. I am very lucky to be the baby of the family ’cause Mau never gets mad when I sleep on it. He rather sleep on top of one of the humans or between the two of them. And he likes to sleep horizontally to take up the most space possible.

Mau’s blankie is at the foot of the bed on Mom’s side, so I am her official feeties warmer. It’s nice to know that even when I am snoozing away, I can be useful and appreciated. Of course, one of my duties is to curl up against Mom’s back and purr her to sleep, so I only snooze on the blanket prior to bedtime and after she falls asleep.

Now, as to my tummy. If you’d like to kiss or snorgle it, I won’t protest….just as long as you do not awaken me with your mushiness.

Before signing off, Mom asked me to let y’all know that Fiona has her monthly check-up with Dr. Neel this afternoon. Fiona promises to give everyone an update on how she’s doing on either Thursday or Friday. Right now she is curled up in Dad’s lap having her own doozy of a snoozy.

Purrs and paw-pats, Calista Jo



Toesy Tuesday Dreaming Doozy of a Snoozy

Of any of the Kitties Blue, none can snooze longer or more soundly than I can. I suppose being 17 years old has something to do with that. I also can sleep anywhere.


dreaming of pizza.


Here I am sleeping on an insulated bag, which is meant to bring cold or hot foods home from the supermarket. But mostly our dad uses it to bring home pizza. If the pizza box was on the counter, I’d be sleeping on that. I even think there is a photo of me doing so. But now we have this warming drawer, so the pizza in its box goes there when Dad gets home. Very disappointing.

Well…wasn’t that just fascinating. NOT!

Mom and Dad spent Sunday and Monday wallpapering so things around here have been pretty boring. That’s why I couldn’t come up with a more interesting post. At least I have given you an excellent view of several of my toesies. That alone should make this post worth viewing.

Our Spam Problems

Te petretary asked me to let all those using a self-hosted WordPress platform that in almost all cases the comments we made yesterday on those blogs disappeared. Mom sent e-mails to several of you, but that was taking up too much time so she stopped. We suspect some of you have our comments in your spam folders. If you find that is the case, will you please retrieve and approve them. That’s the only way we can put a stop to our comments being blocked.

Many thanks on behalf of the petretary and all the Kitties Blue.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia


As the temperatures go up, Lily Olivia’s summer position becomes more exaggerated. It’s not even summer yet, but we’ve already had temperatures in the mid-90s F. And Lily Olivia has reached her full-stretch.


Tummy-Toesy Tuesday Doozy of a Snoozy


She can spend hours in this position spread across the settee or double rocker on the front porch. I don’t know what she is going to do with herself when the temperature increases even more by mid-summer. Maybe I will be able to convince her to come inside where the A/C is running.

As Lily is showing off her toes in her snoozy photo, she thought you might like another photo of them.


Tummy-Toesy Tuesday Doozy of a Snoozy


It always amuses her dad when Lily Olivia sits with all four feet lined up. I know you want to kiss those cute toes, but watch yourself. You could lose an eye when Lily freaks out and then lashes out. Lily Olivia loves kisses on her head, and she will gladly give me kisses all over my face. I just have to ask. But those toes are off-limits. She doesn’t even like me touching them!

silverribbonBefore signing off today, we want to send our condolences to all the families and friends of those who lost their lives in Orlando over the weekend. We also are sending all our purrs and prayers to those who are still fighting for their lives. This continued violence saddens us and makes our hearts hurt.


Tuxie/Toesy Doozy of a Snoozy Tuesday


Brothers make the Best Pillows


Five of the seven girls love their brother, Mau. Lily Olivia is not a fan; though, she has been caught snuggling when she doesn’t realize it’s him. The kitty who likes him least is his actual sister, Misty May. But then, Misty May doesn’t really like anyone but her dad and me.

Mauricio is almost always obliging and will snuggle or bathe any of the other girls who ask. And he’ll always wrestle with Calista Jo at mealtimes. So capturing Lisbeth and Mau like this was no surprise…but still cute! Go ahead a say, “ahh.” You know you want to!

We Were First!

We are great fans of our pal, Sammy’s, Tuesday Teaser. We rarely know the locale in the photos; though, we were the only right guesser a few weeks back. Well last Tuesday, like most other Tuesdays, we did not know the Teaser…but, we were the first to comment. Sammy gives an award for that as well. Here’s what we received.




What made this award extra special was that we didn’t have to share it with anyone else! Yippee! Thanks, Sammy. It’s lots of fun and a good way to wake up your brain!

If you are unfamiliar with Sammy’s Tuesday Teaser, visit his blog today, onespoiledcat, and check it out. It’s lots of fun and a good way to wake up your brain!


Kitties Blue are pawticipating in Wags and Waves for Forrest Day. We have selected Mau, Lily Olivia and Calista Jo to represent us. They are waving as tail wagging would mean they were conflicted or upset, and we wouldn’t want to share that with you.


Wags and Waves for Forrest Day


Our post today is part of the blogosphere’s salute/tribute to Angel Forrest from All Fur One and One Fur All. We are supporting Miss Bev (Fozziemum) and her furmily as they grieve for their dear woofie, Forrest, who recently went to the Rainbow Bridge.

Wags and Waves for Forrest Day was created by Sharon from Gentle Stitches. Sammy and Mom Pam created the beautiful badge. This is such a special gesture, and we are pleased to have the opportunity to join in to honor Forrest and support Bev.

Sammy’s Fifth Blogoversary

Today is also the blogoversary of our special friend, Sammy (onespoiledcat). We are sending our best wishes to him and Mom Pam on their meowvolous accomplishment. In lieu of a party, they are having a comment-a-thon. For every comment they receive on their Tuesday post Mom Pam will donate $1 in Forrest’s honor to the local shelter from which Sammy was adopted.
