NO MORE GRUMPY OLD MAN

by Janet Blue on April 15, 2018

Sunday Selfies: Week #192

I cannot believe I have not done a selfie since March 3. I have changed a lot in those five-plus weeks. I’m still a crazy kitten at heart, but I no longer look like a grumpy old man. Mom recently learned that Manx cats do not mature until they reach the age of four-and-a-half to five years old. Mom and Dad do not know if they have enough energy in their advanced years to keep up with me. MOL! You can bet I’ll continue to test them.

Anyhoo, here is my selfie.

 

Sawyer's selfie

 

Mom asked me if it would be okay if I shared my post. I said, “of course.” After all, Mom is one of the people who feeds me.

Another Sad Good-Bye

Today, we are remembering a kitty you may not know. Foxy was a Cat Scout and friend of Mau and Cooper Murphy. She also spent time living with Lisbeth’s boyfriend, Charles’, family when she was unable to live with her dad. They all loved her very much.

Foxy was a beautiful tortie girl and received her wings yesterday at just 12 years old.

 

 

Foxy had a blog, but she didn’t post very often. You can find it at FoxysLife.wordpress.com. If you’d like to visit her blog and leave condolences for Dad Ed, that would be great. If you would rather leave condolences here, we will make certain to forward them to Dad Ed, and Charles’ mom, Inge.

Manx cats sound great. Love hyper cats. I used to have a cat that didn’t mature until he was seven (not a manx). He jumped and clapped his paws like a kitten when he was five.

I know what it’s like to lose a pet because my two cats died many years ago. It’s absolutely awful.

Great selfie, Sawyer. We know what it is like to have old kittens around here. Frankie is about seven and he still, literally, bounces off the wall.

Sawyer, Youa re so good-lookin’ I am *almost* jealous. If you was a black cat like me, of course, you’d be EVEN MORE handsome! Heh heh. Naw, you look great as you are.

Not as great as Miss Misty M. of course. Do give her a kissie from me, okay? XOXO to your Mom too. She is the nicest person on the whole innerwebs.

Well, you being young and full of energy will keep your humans active and feeling like teenagers themselves again.

So sorrry about your furr-iend Foxy. I’m sure you all meant so very much to her. She will hold your hearts as she travels to the clouds. Hugs to you and her family.

Sawyer that is the perfect selfie. Well after all these years Mom learned something new about Manxies. She said I am still a very playful kitten. I am 5. She says I’ll always be kitten like because I’m so small and have a tiny head with big beautiful eyes. We are very very sorry to learn about the loss of Foxy. You’re right we did not know her, but we sadly know the reality of what the loss of one of our beloved furries is like, and we know they are very sad and heartbroken. Our deepest condolences go out to them.

Sawyer, what a handsome selfie! You look so relaxed and happy. We know you found the right home.

We never knew Foxy but we are sorry to hear that another fur person went over the Bridge. Maybe our Shakespeare was there to greet Foxy!

Have a wonderful week.

It’s true that they don’t leave the kitty behind for many years. I had a precious Manx long ago. I was young though and it wasn’t all that difficult. You’re a good looking kitty too.

So sorry about Foxy. So young. 🙁

Have a purrfect Selfie Sunday. My best to your peeps. ♥

Sawyer, we sure do like your selfie! It’s good that you don’t look like a grumpy old mancat, especially since you won’t mature until you are 4 1/2 or 5!

We are very sad to hear about Foxy going to the Bridge. We will send purrs and prayers to her family.
