REMEMBERING FAITHFUL SELFIE HOPPER, FLYNN

by Janet Blue on May 7, 2017

Sunday Selfies: Week #143

Lily's selfie
If you can’t tell, I was not too happy about having to do the selfie this week. I refused to look at the phone when I snapped the first one (photo on the right). I made certain to make my most pouty face in the second photo to show my displeasure. Though I was unhappy about the selfie part of this post, I am grateful that I am the one who gets to dedicate this week’s Sunday Selfies to our good friend, Flynn Avery.(Eric & Flynn’s Adventures)

Flynn was a regular Sunday Selfie hopper, even when he wasn’t in the mood. His health had been failing for a long time, and he was looking rather tired last Sunday. But he had rallied so many times, we were all certain he’d do so again. It broke all our hearts when we found out he didn’t perk up but got his special kitty angel wings.

 

Flynn's angel selfie

 

Angel Sammy and he were almost always right next to each other in the selfies line-up—the two handsome ginger and white man cats together. We know for certain that Angel Sammy (Two Spoiled Cats), Angel Nellie (Nellie on the Edge) and Flynn’s brother Angel Eric (and so many other friends) were waiting for him with open paws and hearts. We suspect Flynn and Eric already have been busy hunting mousies in the vast, lush, green fields.

Fly free, Flynn. We’ll miss you and never forget you. You’ll remain in our hearts always.

So, I have shown you mine, and now it’s time for you to share your selfie with us and all the other hoppers.  All anipals are welcome, so I sure hope you will invite your friends to join us as well. And you can add your selfie anytime through Thursday if you don’t normally post on Sundays.

The link for adding your selfie is below as is the code to add the hop to your blog if you’d like. If you would be so kind as to link back to The Cat on My Head and/or display our badge, I will take the grumpy look off my face. Thanks to all our long-time hoppers and the newbies. We appreciate each and every one of you.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia

Miss Janet

We are late – but we finished everyone.

Have a wonderful time at BlogPaws, and say hello to Erin’s dad Mark. He is so nervous going all that way and I’m not there with Mum to keep an eye on him. He is a lovely guy and will have his Erin t-shirt on (we think).

This is a bittersweet selfie sunday post. How thoughtful of you to remember all of our friends. Mommy still gets tears in her eyes when she reads about them.

Lovely tribute to your friend, Flynn. Our purrs are with his family.

We think your selfie is purrfect and cat like! We don’t look at the camera either! 🙂

This is such a wonderful tribute to dear Flynn. He was an extraordinary kitty and a very, very Good Boy.
Here’s what I think: I think it is too bad that we kitties live for such a short time when the Humans who always make such a mess of things live five or six times as long as we do! It should be the other way around and this world would be a much better place.
Something to work on for the future!
Much love to all of you and special kissies to Miss MM XOXOXO

Nellie May 7, 2017 at 9:04 pm

What a LOVELY picture of you today Lily Olivia, even if you did not want to do it. And what a lovely memorial to Flynn. He was a wonderful cat. Thanks for mentioning Nellie too. I am sure she and Sammy, Eric, Flynn and GJ are enjoying themselves.
Love Barb

We get that not wanting to look at the camera, Lily Olivia…we totally get it, MOL! None the less, its still a great selfie.

What a sweet tribute to Flynn.

Jean Dion May 7, 2017 at 8:20 pm

I’m with you. I knew Flynn had been failing, but he surprised me so many times with his strength and his will to live. I was just heartbroken when I heard he’d left us for good. Things just won’t be the same without him. You’re lovely to remember him in such a prominent way on your blog.

The Two Devon Cats, Eric and Flynn, were among the first blogs I found when I started. Their adventures and hunting trips on their farm helped me understand what it is to be a cat living in a place where they are safe to BE a cat. I so envied them both. And the cat blog world loved them and sends Mom Jackie and Dad Ivor all our supporting and healing purrs.

You too should have cooperated better as we love to see your photos.
Thinking of sweet Angel Flynn. I know he is now with his brother Eric and they are enjoying running and playing together.

Annabelle May 7, 2017 at 10:01 am

Thank you for dedicating this Selfie Sunday to Flynn. We miss him so much and had been worried for some time seeing his health go up and down. We too believed he had rallied so many times and thought this was going to be the same. But we know he is with his beloved Eric again and all his other family and his long time friends. YOu did a fabulous selfie Lily Olivia. God Bless.

The Swiss Cats May 7, 2017 at 9:33 am

Lily Olivia, even your grumpy selfies are great. 🙂

What a nice tribute to our furiend, Flynn. He will be missed by all of us. The only consolation is knowing that he is once again with his brother Eric and they are now roaming the grassy fields at the Bridge together.

We are so sad that Flynn has gone to the Bridge and bet along with Eric they have a pile of mousies that they are passing out to their friends. Lady Olivia you are a cutie even though you may not want to have a selfie snapped. Purrs all

Flynn May 7, 2017 at 6:54 am

Thank you for dedicating this week’s selfie blog hop to Flynn. I am sure he and Eric have already organised mousie hunting expeditions in the fields at the Rainbow Bridge.

A wonderful tribute to a fantastic cat. Flynn had many challenges to his health in the last while but he continued like a trooper. He well deserves the rest and freedom from pain he now has. We miss him yhough.

Love Shoko and Kali
