Awww Mondays

Yesterday was International Box Day. That’s a holiday Kitties Blue do not like to miss. But with it being both Sunday Selfies and Father’s Day yesterday, they had to wait until today to share their love of boxes. They did receive a new box yesterday, of which Cooper Murphy and Kizmet took advantage.


International Box Day sit-ins collage with photo of orange tabby in box and grey cat trying to get in and of grey cat sitting in box.

Kizmet’s second birthday is coming up in a couple of days. With this in mind, she felt entitled to the first “sit-in.” Cooper Murphy did not agree and let her know. Kizmet eventually did get her turn!

The two are participating in the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus.


My Spark this week has a loose connection to Kitties Blue and International Box Day. I was thinking about how comfortable cats are in boxes. That made me search for a Spark having to do with comfort. This is what I found, and it turned out to be pretty much the opposite of what I expected to post.



Having “one go-round on this planet” struck a chord with me, as I am drawing closer each day to the end of my go-round. Time is precious.

The author of today’s Spark was unfamiliar to me. Here’s a bit about her. Jen Sincero is a 56-year-old, American speaker, success coach and #1 New York Times bestselling author. She is best known for her You Are a BadAss series.

Sparks is the creation of Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend. Annie stated when she began Sparks, “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world.”

The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky

Your favorite cartoon tabbies, Periwinkle and Stinky, will be taking their next adventure tomorrow, and Stinky has planned something extra special and super fun. These two enjoy taking you along with them, and I guarantee this is an adventure you do not want to miss. So, please plan to meet them right here tomorrow for an exciting time!

That spark is good to keep in mind that we do not waste our precious time here upon the earth.

Boxes and bags are a favorite here, for sure.
Am planning a trip by myself, in a few weeks. It’s outside of my comfort zone, but I will not NOT go.

Wow, a new box! So this is not the same as “Boxing Day” or “Boxer Dog Day” Right? Cause our best friends are boxers Ella and Achilles, and we wouldn’t want to leave them out. XOX Xena and Lucy

Glad you enjoyed Box Day! Ted has never been a box guy – he isn’t the slightest bit interested in them whereas Sammy enjoyed a good box hideout. Glad you all enjoyed yours though!! Love the SPARK quote – we make this journey only once and wasting any of it is just not an option. I’ve felt like that for ages…moreso as I creep toward 80.

Hugs, Pam (and Teddy too)
