Tabby Tummy Tuesday with Cooper Murphy

Wow, had I’d known that I was going to be maligned in such a cruel and insensitive manner, I am not certain I would have selected Kitties Blue to be my furmily. Well, it isn’t really Kitties Blue that are the problem. It’s the humans. First Dad Tom took this photo of me, and then the petretary turned it into two memes. Check these out for yourselves. As you can see, I was merely trying to air out my belly furs on a warm day.


memes - I'm not fat!


memes - I am not indiscreet.


No kitty should be treated with such disrespect, and especially not one with a cute heart right on his belly. My humans should delight in my sharing that with them.

The petretary wants me to ask you to tell us in comments which of these memes you like best. If you are my friend, you will tell her, “neither.” Please stick up for this itty-bitty, tabby boy. And if possible, please send treats. I am fairly certain I won’t be getting any from my humans in the near future.

Other News

Last week for Thoroughly Poetic Thursday Mom wrote another poem, “Yesterday,” about our angel sisfur, Fiona. She asked if she should add that poem to the sidebar. Those who responded said, “yes.” She added it yesterday, along with a new badge for Fiona and a statement about our blog being dedicated to her memory. This has brought Mom some comfort and peace. She has decided that this will remain as a permanent part of our blog. We hope you won’t mind seeing this each time you visit.

Thanks for stopping by to see me.

Purrs and paw-pats, Cooper Murphy

Aw, we think the petcretary did those memes because she really loves you, Cooper Murphy. But if you want us to say we don’t like them, then we don’t like them. 😀

“Itty-bitty?” You TOTALLY had cred up until that point Cooper Murphy. OBVIOUSLY it’s the camera angle making you look extra fluffy or something. And who can resist such a gorgeous ginger belly?!?! My hand is itching to pet that glorious belly.

I am relatively new here, so I don’t dare insult a kitty OR a human! I am very sorry about Angel Fiona; a lovely tribute to her.

I adore you Cooper Murphy, but those are funny. I prefer the 2nd one. I do think you should get revenge, a well-placed furball in a shoe is always good. XO

Linda Arthur Tejera June 6, 2017 at 9:24 am

So sorry Cooper Murphy but I like them both. I think I’m partial to the first, though! Happy Tuesday! 😀

Love the first most. I love that you’re leaving both poems up for Fiona. You’re such a good writer.

The Menagerie Mom June 6, 2017 at 8:07 am

MOL! Oh, but don’t worry, Cooper Murphy, we’re laughing with you, not at you. We happen to like both memes, but if we had to pick a favorite, we’d go with the first one!

And I love love love your tribute to sweet Fiona. Beautiful.

Love the addition of your Mom’s newest poem for Fiona AND the pretty badge for her to the sidebar. It’s “as it should be”…….also we LOVE the background – we just noticed it and love it with all the cute kitties!!! As for the photos of you dear Cooper – my Mom and Dad BOTH keep calling me fat too – what’s with that? I think it’s disgraceful! At least your Mom puts a leaf over your private parts – my Mom let my privates be shown for heavens’ sake in one of the photos of me on my back that she posted! We are two maligned gingers – Mom says we could start a “Tubby Ginger” club…..I say PHOOOOEY!

Love, Teddy
