Bill of Rights


Sunday Selfies: Week #85

Hey, hey…it’s Misty May here for the Easter holiday.


Misty May's Easter Sunday Selfie


Misty May doesn’t take a selfie very often, so I am excited that she is here representing and hosting for Easter. Easter or Spring Holiday, as Dad Tom calls it, is quiet at our house. Tom is always out of town for The Asics Big South Volleyball National Qualifier in Atlanta.

Whether you celebrate Easter or not at your home, we wish you a blessed and sunny day with lots of chocolate eggs and bunnies for the humans, nip for the kitties and treaties for all the other critters.

Cat4-001If you’re not too busy celebrating, hope you’ll join our blog hop. As always, the kitties and I encourage you to invite your friends to join in and to include the hop on your blog. Please just link back to The Cat on My Head and/or display our badge. And if you have any trouble linking up, leave a comment and I’ll link up for you.

Still Working on Our Site

You may notice that our site continues to change. When I tried to update the site to the newest version of WordPress, the files would not upload. Not being in the mood to mess with that process anymore at this point, I continue to try to clean up the site. Our Remembering Friends section, which had been on the sidebar, now has it’s own page as does the Universal Bill of Rights for All Cats (a must read if you missed it) from our recent post of the same name. I will be moving other items from the sidebar to individual pages as well. All of these can be accessed from the menu at the top of each page.

Wishing you all a

Happy Easter and Spring Holiday!



As we read our friend Mudpie’s (Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries and Meows) post yesterday with regard to counter surfing, we found ourselves wondering why we cats do not have a Bill of Rights. It seems illogical and unfair that we cats should go through life willy nilly with no regard for our own well being. With this in mind, we, Kitties Blue, took it upon ourselves to create and distribute the Universal Bill of Rights for All Cats.

If you find this difficult to read, the Rights are printed below the scroll in regular text.

Universal Bill of Rights for All Cats

Universal Bill of Rights for All Cats

  1. Humans shall make no law prohibiting the free exercise of all cat-related activities pertaining, but not limited, to play time, treats, napping, nipping, horking, litter scattering, speech, defined as meowing, chattering, caterwauling, purring, hissing or growling, or to assemble (peaceably or not) to demand from their human playtime, litter box maintenance, food, treats, nip or warm-from-the-dryer laundry on which to sleep.
  2. A well-regulated group of catchers of mice, bugs and other vermin, being necessary to the security of the home and property, the right of the cat to keep and bear claws and fangs, shall not be infringed.
  3. No human shall, in time of peace or war, deny entry of a cat to the human home, unless said cat is a mortal enemy of the cat(s) currently in residence. 
  4. The right of all cats to be secure in their furs, houses, toys, food, treats and nip, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall NEVER be violated. No situation exists that would constitute probable cause.
  5. No cat shall be held responsible for any offense, including but not limited to counter surfing, theft of the humans’ food, breakage of items belonging to humans, horking in the humans’ shoes or anywhere else for that matter, smacky paws with fursibs or humans, and especially for no perceived offense against woofies or demented squirrels.
  6. Should any human accuse a cat of wrong doing or perpetrate a crime against the cat, the human shall be put in time-out, for an appropriate amount of time as determined by the cat, or imprisoned for life depending on the severity of the crime. Any and all fines levied are payable in treats, nip or scritches or any combination thereof as determined by the cat.
  7. In suits at common law against a human, where the value in controversy shall exceed two pounds of treats or nip, the human’s right of trial by jury of the resident cat(s) shall be preserved, and no fact tried by said jury shall be otherwise re-examined in any human court of law.
  8. No action by a cat shall result in bail, fines or cruel and unusual punishment, such as withholding of treats or by the use of verbal or physical reprimand, regardless of what a human deems “proper cat behavior.”
  9. The enumeration of rights in this document shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the cat.
  10. The powers and rights delegated to all cats by the Bill of Rights shall be sacrosanct. No human may challenge, waive, deny or change any of these rights by amendments to this document.
