Sunday Selfies: Week #479

The past three weeks, our three eldest girls had the honor of sharing their new portraits. So, I thought it was time for one of the boys to have that opportunity, and decided to spotlight the eldest of them.

There is no one of the other Kitties Blue that can compete with Cooper Murphy when it comes to ginger handsomeness…but then his only competition is Raleigh. I love this boy so much, as I know some others of you do.

I also selected Cooper Murphy for today’s selfie, as his birthday, which was assigned by our vet, was Friday. He is now eight years old.  Cooper was already 15 months old when we adopted him, and so we celebrate his Gotcha Day, which is in January.

Hippity Hoppity Time

Yes, it is that time again. Time for you to share your selfie and join the blog hop. You know all your friends, as well as the Kitties Blue, love to see your adorable faces. We know, however, that many of you, as well as your humans, are busy on the weekend. With that in mind, you have until Thursday to join the hope. So, no worries if you don’t even post on Sunday. Have a furabulous and easy Sunday, dear friends.


Thoroughly Poetic Thursday on Sunday

Finally, here’s my poem for last Thursday’s poetry challenge presented each week by Teddy and Angel Sammy (Two Spoiled Cats). Astrid and Sawyer are perched on the roof of the house.



I think most individuals would see this as a creepy, haunted house with a frightened girl facing it. I decided to take it in another direction and make her brave and determined in my poem. Hope you enjoy it.


I feel like I’m being watched,
But this house is deserted.
In my family for generations,
It’s now come to me
To restore its grandeur.
I am not afraid to enter,
But who is lurking nearby?
Friend or foe? I don’t know.
I will not be dissuaded
Claiming what is mine.
Wait…do I hear purring?
Could cats be near,
anticipating my arrival?
If true, that is a good omen!
I am eager to meet and invite
them to share my home.

Each week Angel Sammy transmits his poem from the Rainbow Bridge to Teddy for publication. He is a terrific poet, and his weekly creation is always worth reading. Next week, however, Teddy and Sammy’s humans will be on vacation, so there will be no inspiration photo or challenge. But pop on over, by clicking on the badge, to check out Sammy’s poem from this past Thursday.

Thanks for visiting us today. If you didn’t follow and support us, there would be absolutely no reason for us to be here. Kitties Blue and I appreciate each of you.
