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.

Cooper Murphy…….we absolutely love you!!! We kind of wonder if maybe Shakespeare had something to do with you finding that wonderful family, too. We all know here that Shakespeare sent Steinbeck to us.

You are such a sweetie Cooper Murphy! Your Mom just needs to tell people that call that your rightful home already claimed you.

It is good that people are trying to find their lost cats, but sad that they are lost to start with. Cooper is a Blue, now. That seems like destiny to me! HUGS! Love you guys. (Stay well. I am so sick.)

Yep, one of my orange tabbies is called Freckles because of a freckle on his nose! They are special babies, for sure. But, then, they all are! 😀 <3

That is a great wave Cooper Murphy- you are so cute. Time to remove any signs of a cat you found, not sure where you posted about him, but he is all yours now and you shouldn’t have to keep worrying that someone will claim him.XO

Cooper is one gorgeous tabby guy and being ginger – well – it’s like icing on the cake (and no I’m not biased…..much!). Nobody can take your Cooper away at this point – he’s yours. Forever. Fiona sure did a great job sending him to you!!!

Love, Angel Sammy
