Kitties Blue are celebrating our fourth blogoversay.


Celebrating Four Years

We kitties are pretty incredulous to still be here
Four years after our blog debuted in the blogosphere.
Mom knew nothing about blogging when we began,
And she has a ridiculously short attention span.
We expected to be done after a year or two,
Especially when our comments were but a few,
But eventually we made some great bloggy friends
On whose support our inspiration depends.
So, please join us today as we mark four years
With a giveaway of  BlogPaws Conference loot and gear.
Then join us again tomorrow and the following day
As we’ll be back ’cause we always have more to say!

We are joining our friend Sammy’s (onespoiledcat) Thoroughly Poetic Thursday with today’s rhyming creation. The letter of the day is “F,” which is purrfect to celebrate our Fourth Blogoversary.

If you’d like to be entered to win our BlogPaws Conference swag surprise package, please leave a comment here prior to Monday, July 25, at 5 p.m. ET. The winner will be selected using As this will be a somewhat heavy package, mailing will only be within the U.S., but anyone can enter. If you live outside the U.S. and win, you can gift the surprise package to a stateside friend.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being our friends and supporting us these past fours years. We cannot predict how long The Cat on My Head will be published. We kitties appear at the whim of our petretary, but regardless of how long or short a time it will be, we promise to be thankful everyday for each of you. We are blessed to have you in our lives.

Finally, we are sending special thanks to Sammy for this wonderful card.


Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

I’m so glad you are still blogging. I have trimmed my reading list quite a bit since I stopped blogging, but you are right at the top of my “must read” list every day! 🙂 Concats on your blogoversary.

Wow, four years! What an accomplishment. I haven’t been following you from the beginning, but it has been a while now. I love your blog – keep up the good work! Keeping fingers we win. We lost our senior Maine Coon boy back in February, but just two weeks ago I found a tiny feral cat in our neighbors’ yard. She’s thriving and is the cutest and adorable kitten. Her name is Kotoha and I’d love to win this giveaway so she’d have some fund new things.
