Recommendation for The Cat on My Head

Best for the Kids I was delightfully surprised when I was contacted by the Best for The Kids web-site representative and asked if they could include our blog on their list of the 16 best cat blogs for kids. The Kitties Blue and I have always considered The Cat on My Head a family-friendly blog, with the occasional PG rating when Mauricio talks about being bitten on his bum. Regardless we are honored to be selected for this list.

This is from the Best for the Kids site:

An overwhelming majority of kids absolutely ADORE pets. A large portion of those kids love nothing more than a cute, fluffy cat. Here at BestForTheKids, we cover the importance of pets in the life of kids and how pets help kids become compassionate human beings.

It took us more than 3 weeks to come up with this list of carefully vetted cat blogs that had to go through several filters before being considered useful for parents who’d like to know about cats mainly because their kids love them.

The Best for the Kids mission really appeals to me, and Kitties Blue and I thank them for thinking our blog worthy of their list. You’ll find several other blogs, with which you are familiar, on their list as well. Click on the link above to find the complete list.

Now for the Nipheads

Kitties Blue favorite person was here yesterday—Chris. She’ll be here in just a couple of days to care for them while Dad Tom and I are at the BlogPaws Conference. She was here yesterday to clean. And she never comes empty handed. Chris always brings treats or catnip. The minute the gang realizes she’s here, they begin circling like starving sharks. Yesterday the offering was nip. Chris covers the foyer rug, and the gang goes crazy…rolling, sniffing and nomming nip! They always have a few hours to get their fill before Chris vacuums it up.


When nip is involved, Astrid and Lisbeth actually get along. At one point they were even touching.

If you think this looks like the gang is being spoiled, it is just a prelude to what they can expect while Dad Tom and I are away. They’ll even get their catio time, but no outside for Lily Olivia, Misty May or Mauricio. Of course, Mau is already on house arrest. He’s not happy about it and continues to complain, but he’s healing. That is what’s important.

Wishing you all a day filled with nip dreams. Hope to see you right back here tomorrow.

Congratulations on your kid-friendly blog recognition.
I’m not sure I’ve ever seen such a generous sprinkling of nip to roll in. It looks like the entire container spilled.

Congratulations but they are extremely clever, if you look closely at their site, this is an advertising ploy to get blogs to promote them. They are Amazon Affiliates. Easy to miss. A lot of sites are popping up that are nothing more than sites that were created to make money. I have turned a number of them down.

It sounds like Chris is the purrfect kitty sitter. I am sure you feel better going somewhere when they are in such capable ( and catnip filled) hands. XO

Oh what fun you pals are going to have while your humans are away at Blog Paws. Nip, nip, and still more nip. You all could come and play at my house too – just bring all your nip with and we’ll have a bigger nip pawty.

Hi Kitties! Mom and I are trying again to leave a comment – we tried several times earlier and kept getting a “404” error – but we are persistent! Hope this works! We just wanted to say that we are so proud that you are on the list of kid-approved blogs because you always have wonderful kid-friendly material AND photos here. Just what kids love when they want kitty pix! Also we are glad Chris will be taking care of you and spoiled you like mad while your Mom and Dad are at Blogpaws…..YAY!

Love, Teddy
