Not Charlie is the newest member of the Kitties Blue Krew (as Angel Sammy Kimmell likes to call them).

Not Charlie visited Dr. Neel today at Vinton Veterinary Hospital, and he was cleared to meet the current, resident furballs. He is:

  • not microchipped
  • FIV and FLV negative
  • a healthy, young adult between the ages of one and two years
  • 12.1 pounds

So…drumroll, please! I’d like to introduce you to

Cooper Murphy Blue


newest family member - Cooper Murphy


Cooper Murphy was totally chill at the vet. He didn’t flinch when he got his vaccinations. He hung out on the exam table looking around the room while his blood tests were being run.  We don’t know where Angel Fiona found this young fellow, but she certainly selected a winner for us.

It hurts my heart that Fiona had to leave in order for Cooper Murphy to come into our lives and adopt us. But we are happy we can give a home to a kitty who did not have one.

Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #36 

FriendlyFillInsI am participating in Fill-Ins again this week after skipping last week. This is a blog hop hosted by Annie (McGuffy’s Reader) and Ellen (15 and Meowing). They each select two partial sentences for participants to complete. Ellen selects the first two and Annie the second. My completions are in teal italics. This is a blog hop, and you can join on Annie’s blog by clicking on the Fill-Ins badge.

1. My guiding word for 2017 is positivity.
2. I am helping to research and locate classmates for my 50th high school class reunion.
3. Truth be told I am superstitious about Friday the 13th, which today is. The reason is that my mom died on Friday the 13th, and she was superstitious about a lot of things.
4. Lately, I have been spending a lot of time with new family member Cooper Murphy (Not Charlie) to make him feel at home here. I think that goal as been accomplished. Now he just has to meet the current feline residents and pass their inspection. You know, they and I will keep you posted on how this goes.

OMC!! Yipee! Not Charlie…we mean Cooper Murphy has a real honest to goodness den to call his own! We are sure he will be a nice ginger-gent and soon will find his pawlace within the furmily dynamics. It seems he knows not to pick fights, MOL!!

We love that name…we know some Coopers, and our doggy cousin who just went to the RB on Jan 12 was called Murphy.

Minko ap-paw-roves…as soon as petcretary opened up this post, he came to sit between her and the confuser…and he is purring up a storm! And Pipo is mrouwing on the sidelines…he nevfur sits on the desk, MOL!

Miss Janet,

*paw hugs * I know you are missing Miss Fiona, She didn’t leave to make room, she just waited until the right kitty came along she could entrust to your care.

Cooper Murphy looks a happy boy. He is a fortunate one too.

Con-cat-ulations! Sometimes a healing cat will appear as if by magic, on his own because he knows you need him, or sent by the kitty who left you because she knows he needs a home and you are hurting, but I think it is rarely coincidence.

YAY!!! Welcome to the Kitties Blue, Cooper! You sure hit the jackpot, young man. And I just love your name, and how incredibly handsome you are. Even if we have trouble understanding the circumstances, I’d say Angel Fiona sure knew what she was doing here. She is certainly watching over all of you.

Welcome “Not Charlie” now Cooper Murphy. OMG you are a little doll. We are glad you didn’t come here though for a visit because our human never could have resisted you and we’re not up for the competition. We sure do admire your mellow demeanor though. We could use alittle of that! Anyway have a good time over there and contact us if later you need any calico girlfriends later on.

Brenda aka Mango January 13, 2017 at 2:03 am

Mango wants to know what is up with all these Tiger striped cats who think they deserve specials Treatment! As we have our own female kitten looking a lot like Coooer! Mauricio may be happy to have a Brother to pass the day with! Mango does say that Cooper is a very young age of 1 or 2.Its downright hard to get a cat to admit his or her correct age! They do not want to give up a single one of their 9 lives and here is a good wish that Cooper lives to the wonderful age of 20! Love Scout Mango and Aspen too

mommakatandherbearcat January 13, 2017 at 1:59 am

Congratulations to the Blues and Cooper! We can’t wait to hear more about him and his siblings’ thoughts on the new kitty. He sure looks like a sweetie 🙂
