We were curious if last week’s guest host, Lizzie Lizard, tasted like chicken. This week, we are sure our guest does. Back off Ashton and Waffles! This guy isn’t your dinner.
Chickens wander everywhere on Tortola, including the beach. Who knew that kitten season is also baby chick season? All over the island, hens could be seen with flocks of minuscule chicks following along behind them.
Several chickens befriended us at the beach and would gather around each day. Charlie, who is our featured host today, had the most glorious tail feathers when we met him. One morning he greeted us sans feathers but one. He had a couple rival roosters on the beach, and we don’t know if it happened in a squabble or if a dog might have gotten him.
Here are Charlie’s selfies.
Bet you are wondering how our humans convinced Charlie to take those selfies. Let’s just say, Mom had him eating out of her hand. And we have the photographic proof.
The humans were not surprised that the chickens liked corn nuts. That they liked Cheerios was a big shock. Charlie liked them so much and ate them so quickly, Mom noticed him belching.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone’s selfies this week. We did get around to visit all of our entrants last Sunday, and we promise to do so again this week. Please understand that it may take us a few days. We are so appreciative of those who participate in and promote our blog hop. You are the best friends Kitties Blue could ever hope to have!
We encourage you to get the link below and post the hop on your blog. We only ask that you include a link to The Cat on My Head and/or display our badge.
Have a terrific Easy Sunday and a happy Memorial Day.

P.S. with regard to our Comment-a-thons:
Kitties Blue are currently holding two comment-a-thons. For each one, Mom will donate 50 cents per comment (no maximum) to these very good causes. The first is for the Red Nose Day campaign.
The second is for Don’t Fry Day. That contribution will be going to Animal Cancer Foundation. We are excited to let you know that Mom Linda (Savannah’s Paw Tracks) has offered to match our donation to Animal Cancer Foundation in honor of Harvey Button (Dash Kitten). Harvey recently had to have his ear tips surgically removed due to squamous cell carcinoma. Thank you Mom Linda, Savvy and TKS.
Once posted, you will be able to see Harvey’s selfie here, but please visit his blog through the link above and give him your purrs and prayers.

Who knew chickens like cheerios? So sorry about Charlie’s tailfeathers. I’m sure they’ll grow back. Kinda like getting a bad haircut.

Charlie, we enjoyed seeing you!
Sometimes we wish we had feathers instead of fur,
and that we could could cackle instead of purr….
Charlie is a very handsome chicken. We have had a few chickens pass through the shelter that I volunteer at. It is a primarily a cat and rabbit shelter, but we have rescued a few chickens and ducks who have been abandoned in a nearby city park. My most favorite being names Zsa Zsa. She looked very similar to Charlie and had a HUGE personality.
Chicks are more than welcome around here 😀 Pawkisses for a wonderful Pentecost 🙂 <3
