Blogville Pawlympics




We were so fortunate to have the opportunity to compete in this year’s Blogville Pawlympics. We had oodles of fun. Our only regret is that the petretary only entered us in a few events. Nonetheless, we wanted to share with you our competitors and events.

Both Mauricio and Fiona entered the Balance Beam Competition hosted by Wyatt and Tegan.














Four of us entered the Raspberries/Tongue Curling Competition at The Adventures of Noodle. The competition was really tough, but we think Fiona, Giulietta, Astrid and Lisbeth acquitted themselves quite well.

Our next event was Gymnastic Bathing hosted by Toby’s Wrecking Crew. For whatever reason, the petretary only entered Astrid in this competition. We know that Lily Olivia is excellent at this event as well. Guess she’ll have to wait until next year. Toby’s mommy made great graphics for all the entrants.

Our final event was Snuggling hosted by Margs Animals. Our entrants were Calista Jo and Lisbeth (when did that happen?) and Astrid and Mauricio.








We are expurrts at Sunpuddle Bathing, and we had our photos ready to enter the competition, but somehow the petretary didn’t get them to Madi. Pffft!

All Pawlympians earned gold medals. After viewing the competitors’ entries in each event, we feel all entrants definitely deserved nothing less than gold.



We’d like to thank all those who hosted the 2016 Blogville Pawlympics. It was pawsome, and we had lots of fun and are already looking forward to next year.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo


Our muttonheaded mom did not post on World Cat Day yesterday. Holy moly cannoli, how can she be so daft as to miss a day celebrating cats worldwide? Isn’t this a blog all about us—Kitties Blue, otherwise known as C-A-T-S?

Late in the day, I took matters into my own paws and posted this on Instagram (Kitties.Blue).  After all, how can we not represent for WCD?


Misty May wishes friends happy World Cat Day.


That was exhausting to pull something together at the end of the day, so now I am having one of those Tuxie Tuesday Doozies of a Snoozy snuggled up next to my dad. The best seat in the house!


World Cat Day leads to Doozy of a Snoozy.


I blame this laxity on my humans being parked in front of the TV watching the Olympics. Some of us here at the House of Blue Cats entered a variety of events in the 2016 Blogville Pawlympics. The only event that we entered that has been contested is the Balance Beam. We are pretty bummed that we were not entered in the Silly Sleepy Furries event. MOUSES! Just another example of our mom’s ineptitude. We’ll share our Pawlympics events with you at the completion of all the competitions.

Sunday Selfies Week #104 Update and Thank You

Cat4-001We had a terrific hop to close out year number two of our Sunday Selfies, with 58 entries. We are so thankful for all who entered as well as all who commented. If you missed this historical (MOL) event, it’s not too late to enter. The hop is open for three more days, and the link to that post is beneath this one.

We kitties have been talking to Mom about doing something special for those who entered the hop all 104 weeks. She’s amenable to the idea, but we’ll just have to wait and see what she does. When we know something, one of us will share.

That’s it from me (THE cat on Mom’s head).

Purrs and paw-pats, Misty May


Tuxie/Tortie Tuesday Doozy of a Snoozy


Lisbeth does not remember snuggling photos with Calista Jo.


See that incredulous look on my face. Do you want to know how I got it?

Mom showed me the following photos, that’s how.


Lisbeth does not remember spooning with Calista Jo.


I absolutely don’t remember these photos being taken or the incident itself. Neither does Mom. She almost fell off her chair when she discovered the photos.

Calista Jo and I are not pals. We don’t chase each other or engage in wacky paws, but we do not cuddle, snuggle or spoon. What we do is hiss at each other whenever we come face to face. Then Calista Jo will slink past me as is only right. After all, she is the baby of the group.

Pawlympics2016+LARGE-1In addition to posting here, Mom entered these photos in the Blogville Pawlympics Snuggling Competition hosted by Marg’s Animals. Mom also entered a snuggly photo of Mauricio and Astrid.

The snuggling competition takes place on August 17.

We entered some of the other events as well, and Mom will share those events and photos in future posts.

Upcoming Posts

We have lots of exciting things coming up on the blog in the next few days, including our Fourth Blogoversary, a giveaway of BlogPaws Conference swag and Mau and Allie’s Wedding. Don’t forget to drop by each day so you do not miss out on any of these exciting events.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lisbeth
