Tuxedo Cat Appreciation Day

Today is Tuxedo Cat Appreciation Day, and we are remembering our three angel tuxedo (tuxie) cats, Daphne, Mauricio and Misty May. We are also celebrating our semi-tuxie (more of a cow-patterned) cat, Lisbeth.

Most of you should be familiar with Mau(ricio) and Misty May but maybe not Daphne. She was the third of the Kitties Blue. We discovered her and her litter mates in the engine compartment of my car.

Our three angels and Lisbeth will be joining the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus. If you would like to do the same, click on the Awww badge,


With our three original tuxies being angels, I wanted a Spark about angels. When I found this one, I knew it was purrfect!

The author, Luciano De Crescenzo (1928 – 2019) was an Italian writer, film actor, director and engineer. Between 1977 and 2019, he published a total of fifty books, selling 18 million copies worldwide. His works have been translated into 19 languages and published in 25 countries.

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

Tomorrow is that special day each week when Periwinkle and Stinky set out on a new adventure. Periwinkle is in charge of planning what they’ll be doing. I am certain she has something fun in mind, and the tabbies will be looking forward to seeing you over at Friends Furever. Please don’t let them down.

Thanks for joining us today.



Sunday Selfies: Week #441

Today is one of three special days to celebrate tuxedo (tuxie) cats. I guess that speaks to how popular they are. This is Tuxedo Cat Appreciation Day.


And if one tuxie cat is good, then four must be GREAT! So today I am sharing selfies of our four tuxies, two angels and two current Kitties Blue. On the left are Daphne and Mau, and on the right are Lisbeth and Misty May. Dad Tom calls Lisbeth a cow cat, as she is more white than black, but that’s just how he sees her.

Just in case you missed the opportunity to honor your tuxie(s) today, here are the dates for the other two celebrations: September 9 is Tuxie Appreciation Day and November 29 is known as National Tuxedo Cat Day!

Remembering Emmy

As we often do on our Sunday Selfies posts, we’d like to remember a special friend who recently received her angel wings—Emmy from 15AndMeowing. Being a tuxie girl herself, this day is meant to celebrate her as well.



If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit Emmy’s human mom and dad, Ellen and David, click here to go to 15AndMeowing.

Hopping Time

Now it’s the time when you get to share your selfie with all of us as well as your other friends. You can link up below anytime now through Thursday. And thanks so much for joining us. Each of you are special, and we totally appreciate you being our friends and part of the hop.
