Sunday Selfie Hop on Fathers’ Day


Happy Sunday AND Happy Father’s Day!     Time to HOP with Kitties Blue.   Are you hopping with us?    You can click their badge above and link up that way  if you like.    Show yourself off with us every Sunday on the Selfie Hop that they host.

This week’s photo is one Mom took on Thursday when she was changing the sheets……….as soon as she pulled the pillow cases off the pillows I popped on top of the pillows, lay down and promptly went to sleep.    Yep – I did – and once more I’ve NEVER EVER done that before (get on the pillows instead of just the bed!)  so it was fun to see her so surprised.      I stayed there for about ten minutes then transferred to the bed itself and kept her from changing the sheets for a nice two hour stretch while I napped.    I didn’t hold up laundry day though – she did all the other laundry while I got my nap in THEN she got the bed sheets.

Here I am………………..

Yep – it’s a little blurry – Mom says it makes me look soft – I say I’m pretty darn SOFT anyway!     Well, just for fun Mom added a Lunapic art effect called “BRAVE” to this photo and we did a puzzle out of it too!

Mom jazzed my photo up on Lunapic using the “BRAVE” art effect………….do I look brave?    THEN she did a puzzle of this photo for those of you who enjoy doing them – – – here you are!

Just click this MINI-ME picture and go for it……

Happy Sunday and Happy Father’s Day to ALL Dads – especially MINE!


You’re the BESTEST POP ever!  

Sunday Selfie for Father’s Day


Happy Father’s Day!

Today we are again participating in The Cat On My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop but of course we’re honoring our Dad at the same time………………..our selfie today is dedicated to him………..even though one of us has gone to the Rainbow Bridge, you will always be our Dad.

If you’d like to visit The Cat On My Head to join in the hop with the LINKY tool, please do!   The more the merrier…………….just click their badge below to go!

This is the first Father’s Day that Dad hasn’t had a card and present from Angel Sammy – and Sammy always left him a secret special note in the tiny little “journal” that Dad keeps by his recliner in the Family Room.    I almost put a note in there for him like Angel Sammy used to but somehow it just didn’t seem right………that was between Dad and Sam………..instead, I got him a special card celebrating OUR first Father’s Day together which I gave him this morning along with his present.

Always and Forever…….Angel Sammy and Teddy

Father’s Day and Selfie Sunday!


A double occasion today but the MOST important is Daddy’s Day………………….Mom and I made this card for him – he loved it!!


My Dad means the world to me………………..and my Mom says HER Dad meant the world to her too so I want to honor that as well.    In fact, we want to honor everyone who IS a Dad because it’s a very important job.   I’m going to spend the whole day with my Dad today……………showing him how much I love him!

We are also participating in Sunday Selfies with Kitties Blue…………….I did a selfie portrait of ME for that and here it is – I hope Dad likes it………I’m up on his and Mom’s bed getting ready to take a bath (tee hee)…………..

Happy Father’s Day!  

Love, Sammy




Nope – nor “Birthday” – it’s BACON Day!    Woo Hoo!    Actually I’ve been a lucky boy this week…..Mom and Dad had breakfast with bacon on the menu TWICE this week and then an added bonus when Mom fixed BLTs for dinner one night too.   I was in BACON-HEAVEN!

BACONburger baconpancakes Oh boy!  Breakfast AND dinner!

I know I didn’t discuss Monster Day yesterday because it was of course International Box Day (what fun that was!) but we did in fact have some monsterizing going on around here.  Bunnies were running for their lives but soon things settled down.  Whew!

The house is alive with cleaning!

The house is alive with cleaning!

Tomorrow is Father’s Day as you all know……………I’m not sure WHAT to give my Dad but I’m thinking I may just try to spend lots of guy time with him.  He would like that….normally I’m with Mom 99% of the time even though I do love my Dad.  Mom’s lap is just more comfortable (haha), and she’s the one who listens to me whine and ask for things – she’s my “GO TO” human when I need or want something.   If I HAVE to get Dad  to do something he always does but Mom understands my “Sammy-lingo” better than Dad does.

Sam Saying HI To The Camera

Yes Mom, I’m talking to you….who else can I whine to about stuff??????

Next Wednesday is Bacon’s Shopping Around the World blog hop so don’t forget!   That’s a lot of fun……..always is.    It’s also Summer’s Cat World Domination Day – a day to celebrate WHO runs the house (we know it’s not the humans in it that’s for sure – right????!!!!!).   That’s the same day as Bacon’s Shopping blog hop.   BUSY DAY ON WEDNESDAY but that will be tons of fun.

We have  rain, rain and more rain, so that always gives me an excuse to post this silly photo…………….


Have a happy and hopefully RAIN FREE bacon day!

Hugs, Sammy the Damp Kitty

Silent Sunday


It’s sort of silent today –

it’s Father’s Day so I have to say

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to all Dads…….

especially mine!!!!



P.S.   A good Cat Scouts friend of mine, Shoko, is celebrating her SIXTH Birthday today!  

Please stop by and wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY HERE!

Daddy’s Day


To All Who Are Celebrating It Today


I’m going to be extra adorable all day today (easy peasy) just for my Dad.  It’s pretty easy to do – being adorable comes naturally to me for some reason (ha) but because my Dad has always taken good care of me and Mom, we both want him to know ESPECIALLY today, that we love him.

I thought I’d put together a little slide show of all the photos on the computer that feature him or him and me…….my way of saying “THANKS FOR BEING MY POP!!!!”……………

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I could go on and on and on with all the reasons why I’m happy to celebrate with my Pop on Father’s Day…………but instead of that I think I’ll just post that special card I made for him because that says it all.  He’s #1 with me and always will be.




Also, today my Mom is thinking about HER Dad – he never got to know me because he went to the People Bridge in 1992 – WAY before I was born – but she misses him and I know we would have been buddies if we’d been able to meet.

So to Daddies everywhere – thanks for taking care of all of us – your families.  We appreciate you !


Sunshine Saturday


Hey Peeps!

It’s Caturday and I’m feelin’ good…….we’re getting sun ALL DAY today (no more peeking behind the clouds or sneaking in a shower or two) and of course bacon’s on tap for breakfast.  Good right?  RIGHT!

Blurry but you get the drift...Sam's not thrilled with his new hat!

Had to wear my visor yesterday when I went outside…..!

Also I saw Mom on the computer yesterday (I was pretending to be asleep on the studio couch by the computer table at the time) and she ordered me something from Mollie’s shop – she ordered a couple of things for herself but she also ordered ME a Scruff Kitty Toy (that cute little purple guy with the blonde wacky hair and buttons down the front) – now wasn’t that SWEET of Mom????   She ordered one of the cat carrier bags (brand new item) for herself (it can’t always be all about ME) – I’ll be glad for her to have that.  Right now all the plastic carrier bags she keeps are in an old laundry basket in the basement……now she can keep them in style!   YAY!   If you haven’t been to the store lately, check it out.

So Father’s Day is Sunday………..just in case you’ve been living under a rock and didn’t know that……… 😀 😀 😀   I’m thinking of doing a special slideshow featuring me and my Dad on Sunday.  Meanwhile, wanna see the card I did for him???   It’s a surprise.


Do you think he’ll like it?????

If you’re celebrating tomorrow, do you have special plans?  If so, whatcha gonna do?  We’re having a cookout!

Happy Sunshine Saturday Everybody……………………..Love, Sammy 😀


A Tale Of Two Dads



So today’s a day to celebrate Dads everywhere.  I gave my Dad some new polo shirts and Mom and I gave him cards – he was pretty happy (and he needed some new shirts!!).   I’m the first to admit that I’m a “Mama’s Boy” because I sleep on HER lap, SHE feeds me my meals, I follow HER around the house, I keep HER company in her studio, I ask HER to take me outside…….but when I want to feel safe or if I’m not sure what a sound is that I hear I go to my Dad for reassurance. 

When I was a baby, I used to spend a lot of time with my Dad.  I would fall asleep lying on his chest or in his lap:

Happy Father's Day Pop!
On Dad’s lap…well, sort of….I’m kinda slipping down a bit!

And I’d run to him to pick me up if I was scared:

Alright - so I'm even MORE of a handful now than I was when this pic was taken!
Daddy and me when I was a little guy…..

And when I got older I showed him how to play “Mr. Yellow Fuzzy Ball” with me!

Me and Dad playing with yellow fuzzy ball (it’s UNDER me in this photo!)

So we’re really great pals and I love him very much…..I’m going to be extra snuggily with him today as part of my Father’s Day gift to him…..Mommy said she didn’t mind AT ALL!

Today my Mom is also thinking about HER Dad – my Grandfather although I never did get to meet him.  He went to the Human Rainbow Bridge in October 1992 which was a LONG time before I was born!  He was an officer in the Air Force and so Mom got to see a whole lot of the world (maybe that’s why she and my Dad are always going on trips everywhere!!).   Happily in 1990 when my parents got married, my Grandfather was still here so he could walk my Mom down the aisle!

So it’s a day for EVERYBODY’S Dad…..whether still here or over the Bridge….Dads are very special people and always will be. 

Now, please excuse me because I believe I’m going to go over and give Dad a BIG surprise by hopping up on his lap!  He’ll like that……maybe more than his new polo shirts!!

Kitty Hugs to EVERYBODY………….Sammy

Sam’s Father’s Day Message


It’s Father’s Day!  I know because yesterday Mom showed me the card she got for me to give to Dad this morning and I signed it – well, I put my paw print on it anyway…..and it was waiting for him on the kitchen counter when he came down to get his coffee this morning.  He loves surprises. 

Eleven years ago when my Mom and Dad came to the shelter, found me and adopted me, my Dad had NEVER had a cat before!  Nope.  He had a beagle when my Mom met him….and while my Mom had always had cats and knew how adorable, funny, and smart we are, he really didn’t.  I had to TEACH him all of that.  Big job but I did pretty good showing him the ropes!

I would follow him around and wait for him to sit down – then I’d crawl up into his lap and he’d pet me and talk to me.  If he’d go upstairs to his office I’d follow him and hop up on the footstool while he sat at his desk.  One of my favorite things was when he’d go to the basement to take a nap on the old couch.  I’d climb up and curl up on his chest and fall asleep with him.  Pretty smart of me huh? 

You have seen this picture of me before here on my blog, but in honor of Father’s Day, Mom said I could post it again – why?  Because it’s one of my favorites of me and my Dad.  I felt safe in his lap – I know he will always watch out for me no matter what.  He’s my hero.  Mom says her Daddy was her hero too……I guess that’s part of what being a Daddy is all about.

Happy Father's Day Pop!

Happy Father's Day Pop!

To all Dads – human or otherwise……have a super day!

Sammy, One Spoiled Cat (who loves his Dad)
