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.
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.
Maybe the neighbor cat has a bad situation at his/her home. Mom told us about her favorite tabby who moved down the street to one of the neighbors when her boyfriend’s big GSD moved in.
I think porch kitty DOES want to come in.
Thank you for participating in the fill-ins great answers except I am sorry that your injections are not working. That is a sweet flashback photo. XO
I had a Tiger cat too when I was growing up. Hey, no worries here, things happen all the time.
When the mom was a kid, she had a tabby cat named Tiger too.
A nice picture of family tabby cats named Tiger! … My Mom had one named Tiger too. I love tabbies!
We loved our Valentines! That’s a sweet memory photo.

We loved our snail mail valentines! So sorry your injections didn’t last – they usually do don’t they? Hope you can get your blog problems fixed – lots of people seem to be having issues with their blogs lately. My very first cat was named “Tiger” – I got him when I moved out from home and rented my first apartment. Sadly the management decided to ban pets but fortunately my big sister took Tiger for me and found him a home. He was a ginger…..the start of my ginger cat obsession!
That is a sweet tabby family. When I worked for the vet someone brought in two half grown tabbies and said they didn’t want them. I took them home and called them Tiger and Jane. My mum wasn’t happy though because we already had 2 cats. They ended up living in my bedroom at night and out in the garden and fields by day.
When I was 2, I had a cat named Tiger…but he wasn’t real, MOL! (It was almost life sized!)
Somewhere there is a picture, but it isn’t scanned…
Sorry you are having issues within your blog, what a pain.
Do you think Porch Kitty wants to join your family, Misty May??
