Sunday Selfies: Week #180

If you missed yesterday’s post, you are unaware that our mom volunteered me as your host for today’s Sunday Selfies post. You probably think that it is because I am totally adorable. But you’d be wrong…not when it comes to my adorableness but for the reason I was volunteered.

Dad Tom and Mom think I was naughty on Friday night and that taking a selfie would be my punishment. First of all, I do not think I was naughty but just a bit impulsive. And secondly, I’m happy to take a selfie. Like I said, “I am adorable.”


Naughty boy hosts Sunday Selfies


Now, look at that face. I am totally innocent looking, so how how could I have been naughty. I only slipped out the front door and went under Mom’s car to play a little, It was dark out, but I swear I didn’t plan to run off anywhere. I was just getting a little fresh air. Okay, I know I can do that on the catio, but I just needed to see if the air is fresher in front of the house.That’s totally reasonable, don’t you think?

I’ll admit my plan had one major flaw. I made my escape at dinnertime! Mom thought if she told me it was dinnertime, I would sprint right back in the house. Nope. I’m not that easy. It took the promise of treats and Dad dangling my wand toy in front of me until he was able to scoop me up. I wasn’t pleased by the outcome, but at least I didn’t miss my dinner. The treats, however, were left on the front porch. he skunks probably found them.

So, anyhoo, I am here as your host today.

Tabby Cat Club

I liked this selfie so much, I used it for my Tabby Cat Club I.D. as well. I wanted to join Cat Scouts with Mau and Cooper Murphy, but Mom says that isn’t going to happen. She claims that Cat Scouts takes a lot of time and effort. She thinks I wouldn’t help her. Hmmm…she’s probably right! I’m a kitten and extremely busy. So I have joined Cooper Murphy at TCC.

Health Update

Again, if you didn’t drop by yesterday, you don’t know that Mau has the eye icks! He went to the vet yesterday morning and is now getting meds and eye ointment along with Calista Jo. Mom and Dad caught his infection a bit more quickly, so he didn’t have a high fever or need fluids. So we could us a few more purrs, prayers and POTP that this does not spread to any others in the furmily. Astrid, Giulietta, Lisbeth and Misty May are healthy, and we’d like to keep it that way.


Now that I have shared my adorableness, it is time for you to share yours. here’s a few tips for sharing your selfie and joining the hop.

Thoroughly Poetic & Thankful Thursday

Unfortunately, the petretary is taking a really long time to get better. Because of that, Cooper Murphy has taken over the first part of this post for Read Across America Day. He’s even written another poem.



The Lorax

Today is a day to celebrate reading.
It’s not something I do, but I hear it is pleasing.
It is known as Read Across American Day
And celebrates author, Dr. Seuss’, birthday.
I never met him but heard he wrote good books.
I think one was maybe something for cooks.
That book was called, Green Eggs and Ham,
And features a character named, Sam-I-Am.
He even wrote about a cat wearing a hat.
Can you imagine something as silly as that?
Today I am a dressed as a guy called a Lorax.
He seems to be a well-known environmentalist.
“I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees.”
Is a famous quote by this guy and now me.
For this reading day, the Lorax I’ll be
Instead of ginger tabby, Cooper Murphy.
If you can, go read a book and hug a tree.
You’ll feel great mentally and physically!

This is my poem for Angel Sammy’s and Teddy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday. Our prompt letter for his week is “L.” If you’d like to read some other “L” poems you can find the poems or links to them at Two Spoiled Cats.

Now that I have taken care of my responsibilities, I am heading to a party at the Tabby Cat Club.

Thankful Thursday

Lily Olivia is our thankful kitty this week. She was overwhelmed by all the comments and kind words and wishes she received for her birthday. She’d especially like to thank all those who mentioned that she doesn’t look her age. She said that it was a terrific day, and she plans to be around for next year’s birthday. We are entering Brian’s Home Thankful Thursday blog hop. You can do the same by clicking on his badge.


PetSafe FroliCat Fox Den Winner

Finally, we are so excited to announce the winner of our giveaway. It is Annabelle and her fursibs at Manx Mnews. If you didn’t win this time, don’t be too disappointed. Tomorrow Kitties Blue will be reviewing the FroliCat DART DUO Interactive Laser Light and giving away one of those as well. So make certain you leave a comment here prior to Thursday, March 9, at 5 p.m. EST.

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



Tabby Tuesday

The last tabby kitty who was a member of Kitties Blue got his wings in 2011. That was the year prior to petretary starting our blog. Like Cooper Murphy, MacKenzie was a ginger tabby, but he didn’t have an opportunity to pawticipate in any blog activities.

Since Cooper Murphy officially joined the household, our friend and Tabby Cat Club founder, Gracie, has been trying to get petretary to allow Cooper to join TCC. As other friends, Angel Sammy, Raz and Socks have official positions within the club, prtretary thought it would be a good experience for Cooper to join.

So, Cooper Murphy is now an official member with his very own badge.


Cooper Murphy joins Tabby Cat Club.


We do hope he has some fun. Upcoming events include a Super Bowl party, Valentine’s Day party and Comedy Club event. Cooper Murphy plans to pawticipate in all these events.

We know many of our friends are members of TCC as well. Cooper Murphy is excited about the opportunity to meet and make friends with our pals and other tabbies.

We are purrty certain Cooper will be sharing about all the fun he has at TCC with all of you.

Purrs and paw-pats, Kitties Blue
