Hey guys. Here’s my first blep selfie of the new year. And knowing how much the humans love when us cats…and dogs, too…stick out our tongues like this, it won’t be my last. Because making humans happy is what I aim to do.

Besides, looking all cute like this may score me some extra treats!

And on another note…as many of you may know…Betty White, the beloved comedic actress, passed away on December 31 at the age of 99, just weeks before her 100th birthday which would have been January 17. The whole world had hoped she would have lived to celebrate that day but it was not to be.

Betty White was a cool lady…talented and funny. The mom enjoyed watching her on the Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Golden Girls (she’s really aging herself). But what made Betty White even cooler is that she loved animals and did much to help and support them.

Betty White Challenge

So it’s been decided that on January 17…Betty White’s birthday…everyone take the Betty White Challenge and donate to their favorite animal shelter or rescue group in her memory. Me and the mom will be donating to our favorite one…maybe even a couple of them…and I hope all of you will do so, too.

    What a neat idea to donate to shelters in BW’s honor.
    Dalton came from a local shelter that helps both kitties and pups…and they often have adoption events at some of our local stores…and there is also another very good kitty rescue we know about…The times I have been there I get kitten fever:)
    Benji came from a different shelter. It seems there are many such places in our area…hooray and kudos to them all.

    Did you know that BW had ties to Michgan? Her Father was born in Michigan. Hooray!

  23. Yes, we love cat bleps, and yours is wonderful, Ernie!
