Formal Introduction

If you follow Dad Tom on Facebook, you already know the news: Kitties Blue have grown from seven to nine members. And if you’re a regular follower and reader of this blog, you know we took in two orphans Tuesday night. As many of you anticipated, I fell in love and convinced Dad Tom we had room for two more at the inn.



As you can see, very little persuasion was necessary.


I know some of you will be curious as to how their names were selected. Audrey has been on our list of names for girl kitties for many years. It is the first name of one of our previous vets, who we dearly loved. She took wonderful care of many of the past Kitties Blue.

Raleigh is a derivation of my mother’s maiden name, which was Rowley.

Caturday Art

I used the photo from yesterday’s post to create this week’s art. If you missed seeing the original photo, click on the link at the bottom of this post.


it's official: new kittens are given names and shared in an artsy rendition of their previous day's photo


I actually made two artsy versions of this photo but decided to share just this one and save the other for a future post. Of course, I used Painnt to create my art. This is the Deciduous Dream effect with the “multiply” filter. And the frame is another from the favpng app.

I did create a puzzle for all the jigsaw fans.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Another week has flown by, and it’s time to dust off your camera or phone and snap a selfie of yourself for our blog hop. As usual, I have no idea which of the Kitties Blue will take on hosting duties tomorrow. I am fairly certain I will give the kittens a rest. I don’t want any of the rest of the gang to feel they are being pushed aside. Each one of the Kitties Blue is important and loved. That means you’ll need to stop in tomorrow to see who shows up.

As we tell you every week, Kitties Blue and all your friends look forward to seeing your adorable faces every Sunday. So, please stop in and share. And if you have any friends you think might wish to show off their cuteness, please invite them along.

Hope to see you tomorrow.
