kitty toes


What a terrific Tuesday it is when we can share a little bit of tabby tongue, toes, tummy and tail. Not having a tabby in the family since our sweet MacKenzie (another orange boy) left us in 2011, it is a treat to have this opportunity.

A call from another person hoping to claim Cooper Murphy as her lost cat had me in fear once again that we’d lose him. After much back and forth with phone calls and photos, and our trying to convince this lady that Cooper Murphy was not her three-year-old cat, Simba, she still asked to come see him. Before that could happen, she sent us a photo of Simba, pointing out that he has two freckles on his nose. (She could have started with that detail!) We sent an enlarged photo of Cooper Murphy’s freckleless nose to her. Another CATastrophe averted.

Check out these new photos of our catty cutie.

Cooper Murphy-5 - ginger tabby


Not only can Cooper nap like a champ, but he also has mastered waving and giving a razzleberry at the same time. Crockett (Lone Star Cats) better watch out. He could have some competition from the new kid when it comes to his signature tongue displays.

Please feel free to squeee or snorgle at will!

I want all these people who have lost their precious, ginger tabbies to find them, but not at our expense of losing our new best friend and family member. He is the perfect addition to the Kitties Blue gang, and we have fallen in love.

Today is Change a Pet’s Life Day? We hope we did that for Cooper Murphy.

Thank you, Fiona, for guiding this blessing to us.



showpawday We are pawticipating in Show Your Paw Day. This is being sponsored by Sammy at onespoiledcat and Archie, Oscar and Henry from My Three Moggies.

If you are superstitious, you may think Friday the 13th can bring bad luck. Conversely, you probably believe that a rabbit’s foot brings good luck. If that is the case, then cat toes/paws must bring superior good luck! And besides that, they are so kissable.

To make this a really lucky day for one of our pawsome readers, we are having a little contest. Whoever is the first to identify all eight sets of our paws correctly will win a prize. We have no idea, as yet, what that will be, but we promise it will be pawsomely special.

Some should be really easy to figure out, but if you need help, you might want to check out one of our previous posts: Wordless Wednesday: 20 Paws. Then check out the photos below and leave your guesses in Comments.
