Feline Friday


An old photo of a tabby cat and her three tabby kittens.


Today’s felines lived a long time ago with Dad Tom and his family. This is Tiger and her three kittens. The photo is circa 1950.

My family and I also had a cat named Tiger. Our Tiger, however, was a male. He was one of nine kittens in the litter of a female cat we had in the early 50s. He was the only kitten we got to keep. My parents found homes for all the other kittens and their mom.

Tiger and her kittens are joining the Feline Friday blog hop at messymimi’s meanderings. To participate click on the Feline Friday badge.

Friendly Fill-Ins

Time again to let you know a bit more about Kitties Blue and myself by completing the weekly fill-ins. Friendly Fill-Ins is a blog hop hosted by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (Four-Legged Furballs). On Thursday they each select two sentences to be filled in by hop participants, and you can find those on both blogs. Enter the hop by clicking on the graphic.

I got help with fill-ins again this week from the same two Kitties Blue who helped me last week: Misty May and Sawyer. We all used teal italics for filling in. Any explanatory information is in parentheses.

1. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that all the snail mail valentines I sent arrived on time.

2. I am disappointed with the recent injections I had in my knees. (The pain was back within three days.)

3. Sawyer: I get excited when I hear either Mom or Dad call us for treats at 11 a.m.

4. Misty May: I didn’t believe neighbor cat would actually be bold enough to sleep on our double rocker on the front porch until I saw it for myself.

If you missed last week’s Friendly Fill-Ins post, I shared some photos of neighborhood cat and Audrey. You can see them on the post: “Hey You, Get Off Our Porch!”.


Kitties Blue and I want to apologize to Angel Sammy and Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats) for missing Thoroughly Poetic Thursday and Brian for missing Thankful Thursday yesterday. I am having site and theme issues and spending time trying to resolve those as opposed to blogging. But the kitties and I will be here tomorrow for Caturday Art and Sunday for Sunday Selfies. Hope to see lots of you joining us here then.
