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.

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.



Sunday Selfies: Week #111

We have a guest host this week. After seeing Misty May’s selfie last week, he asked if he could post a tongue selfie. How could we refuse. Everybody loves a good tongue-out photo. If we’d known, however, that he was going to inappropriately use his tongue to pick his nose, we might have demurred.

We have to admit this is a pretty impressive talent, even if a bit gross, but it is not the most impressive thing about this guy. Check this out!

Dad Tom helped this guy with his selfie. His legs weren’t long enough to hold the camera at a far enough distance to get those horns in the photo.

Cat4-001So now you’ve seen our submission for this week. Pop your selfie on the hop and take a few minutes to stop by at least some of the of the other participants. We apologize that we never seem to make it around to visit all the participants each week. Regardless, we sure are hoping you’ll continue to hop each week.

The link to add your selfie to the hop is below as is the code to add the hop to your blog should you so desire. If you do, please include our badge and/or link back to The Cat on My Head.

Thanks again for participating in our hop and supporting us. The kitties at I think y’all are meowvolously pawsome.
