Friendship Friday


Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #31


We are joining this week’s Christmas-themed Friendly Fill-Ins hosted by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Annie (McGuffy’s Reader.) The kitties asked me to complete all four fill-ins, as they found them to be human-oriented. My completions are in teal italics.

This is a blog hop. To enter, visit McGuffy’s Reader.

1. I love the following Christmas film(s): Miracle on 34th Street (1947 version), Holiday Inn, While You Were Sleeping.

2. I don’t care for the following Christmas film(s): Bad Santa.

3. At the holidays, I cannot resist peppermint bark candy.

4. A favourite holiday memory of mine is the first time I got to make the cake for my grandpa’s birthday, which was on December 24. It was his 70th birthday, and I was 13 years old. I made the cake from scratch, and it had three layers, red, green and white. (I have a black and white photo of my grandpa and me as he was cutting the cake. I was going to share it, but I had the WORST EVER hairstyle, and the photo is blurry.)

Instead of sharing the cake-cutting photo, I am sharing this totally gratuitous photo of the most spoiled cat on the planet! Enjoy, and feel totally free to snorgle that belly. I promise he won’t wake up.

Ramona has kindly selected The Cat on My Head to be this week’s featured blog for the second time. The post is in memory of our beautiful angel, Fiona. All the Kitties Blue and I are most appreciative and thank Ramona for thinking of us as we continue to grieve. It truly warms our hearts to see this tribute to our angel.

This is a blog hop. To join and/or see the other entries, click on the Create with Joy badge.




Yippee! Today is one of our favorite days of the year. Although, any day with a box in it, is a favorite for us and most kitties. They’re great to sleep in, play in, nibble on and shred. We don’t have any decent, empty boxes around right now. Our humans recycle and the present delivery man hasn’t stopped by in a while. So Mom is repurposing some photos from the past by putting them in a collage.

Only four of us made it into today’s post. Lily Olivia and Astrid, our two box-obsessed sisfurs, got two photos each.

We are joining our friends and hosts, Peaches and Paprika and Luke from Wag ‘n Woof Pets in celebrating today.



We also ar joining up with Magellan and Tsunami at Create with Joy for their Friendship Friday Blog Hop. We can’t think of anything more friendly than sharing a box.


boxPlease join Kitties Blue tomorrow as we celebrate Calista Jo’s third birthday. There will be some BlogPaws loot up for grabs for those who leave a comment.


Cat4-001And our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop will be a special Father’s Day edition. Please take the opportunity to ask your dad to share your selfie or post one of him alone. We know some of our friends don’t have dads, so this is NOT a requirement to participate.

Happy International Box Day!

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


I couldn’t think of anything better for a Friendship Friday post than photos of friends at BlogPaws. Here are a few from Thursday.

I was super excited to meet Cathy Keisha’s mom, TW (Patty) and Lola, the Rescued Cat’s mom, Dawn. People are still arriving. Tomorrow I hope to see more old friends and make some new ones as well. I am participating in Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday Blog Hop.




Like cats in tutus and tiaras, we are twirling with excitement. Okay, so Lily Olivia may not look too excited (and she’s only wearing a virtual tutu and tiara), but we are filled with delight and delirious with happiness!

Friendship FridayWe found out on Thursday afternoon that we are the Friend of the Week and have received the Very Inspiring Blogger Award from the Create with Joy blog. (Click on the badge to view the post.)

Create with Joy is one of the most popular and well-read blogs with a Google page rank of four! In our opinion, being featured there is like winning the lottery. And this honor came out of the blue (so to speak).

To celebrate receiving the Inspiring Blogger Award herself, Ramona from Create with Joy decided, over the course of the next several weeks, to select Friends of The Week in a range of categories and pass on the award to them!

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

FNN Roving Correspondent

Ramona asked one of her two adorable cats, Magellan (the newly appointed Roving Correspondent for the Feline News Network), to provide her with a list of some of his favorite Cat Blogs to receive the award and be the Friend of the Week. Mom (yeah, we are calling her that again) and The Cat on My Head were selected from the ranks to be Create with Joy’s first Inspiring Blogger. Did we say we feel honored as well as grateful?

Those receiving this award are encouraged to:

  • Thank the person who nominated them and link to their blog. (The link is above.) Thank you Ramona and Magellan from the bottom of our furry little hearts. We are truly honored to accept this award from you.
  • Display the award logo. See above.
  • Nominate 15 bloggers who inspire you and share their links with your readers. We will do this in another post sometime next week.
  • Leave a comment on their blogs so they know that they’ve been nominated. Ditto.
  • Mention three things that have inspired you during the past week. We will do this as well when we pass along the award. 

If you do not know Magellan or his fursib, Tsunami, or d0 not follow Create with Joy, we suggest you check out their site. You are sure to find something you like from the varied and inspiring content.

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