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.

He looks like he’s integrated very well with the kitties blue family. Hope you can keep him.

What adorable pics! The top one in particular. It reminds Mummy of one of Angel Possum’s favourite poses.
What a snorglable tummy Cooper Murphy has!

We’re pretty sure Fiona and Cooper Murphy already know that he’s home. Sweet purrs to him!

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.

McGuffy's Reader January 24, 2017 at 2:51 pm

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.)

mommakatandherbearcat January 24, 2017 at 2:19 pm

And what a gorgeous tabby, Mr. Cooper is!

Katie Isabella January 24, 2017 at 2:11 pm

Thank goodness Cooper Murphey is at home with you now. He will always be loved and cherished. I do feel badly for other moms who have lost their babies.

Linda Arthur Tejera January 24, 2017 at 10:54 am

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

Random Felines January 24, 2017 at 10:09 am

there certainly is something special about those orange tabbies

The Island Cats January 24, 2017 at 9:44 am

What a handsome guy Cooper is. He sure is making himself right at home.

Caren Gittleman January 24, 2017 at 9:43 am

You have to be a wreck with these people turning up! Cooper is exactly where he should be!! xoxo

Linda @ A La Cartel January 24, 2017 at 9:27 am

oh that tongue! Annie is thinking he is quite a cute fella!!

Charles Huss January 24, 2017 at 7:50 am

He is a cute boy and I love the tongue picture.

The Menagerie Mom January 24, 2017 at 7:36 am

There is indeed much squeeing going on here! And we really have no doubt that adorable Cooper is exactly where he is meant to be.

Ellen Pilch January 24, 2017 at 7:17 am

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

The Florida Furkids January 24, 2017 at 6:11 am

SQUEEEEEEE!!!! Cooper Murphy sure is adorable. We’re sad for the folks who have lost their kitties. We’re VERY happy that Fiona sent CM to you (and to us!)

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

Pawsome razzberry!!

Summer January 24, 2017 at 2:11 am

I feel bad for these humans with lost ginger kitties too. At least Cooper Murphy looks very happy he was found by you!
