Sunday Selfies: Week #413

Two years ago today our beloved Mau(ricio) became an angel. He’d been ailing for a couple of weeks, but we had no idea that his death was imminent. He passed on his own terms after going out to the yard through the cat door early on that Friday morning. As with all of our angels, I will hold him in my heart always. Admittedly he takes up a very large part of my heart. Mau had a huge purrsonality and loving heart. He adored his wife Allie, his fursibs, his humans, his human girlfriend, Mary Jane, and pretty much anyone he ever met.

I know I think of him daily, as I look at his photos and the wonderful painting Karen Nichols (Cat Scouts Denmaster) created of him.

Today, Kitties Blue, Dad Tom and I remember him with his very first and not too great selfie from August 3, 2014.

We did not officially begin the Sunday Selfies blog hop until two weeks later on August 17. (Next month we will celebrate our eighth Sunday Selfies anniversary.)

Mau took his final selfies on July 8, 2020. You can see those in the post, “Mau’s Final Selfies.” After six years of practice, he did a much better job with those final ones.

Hopping Time

I know Angel Mau would be so happy if you join him today and post your selfie. But, if you don’t post on Sundays or are busy today, you can join the top anytime through Thursday. Kitties Blue love making new anipal friends. If you think any of your friends might enjoy participating, please invite them on our behalf.

Thank you to everyone who continues to hop with us each week. We appreciate you support and friendship.

Oh, dear, we saw Mau and he looks so much like Loulou and it must have been a terrible blow to lose him so fast. We send you love and we are so sorry we did not get to know our ‘cousin’ better….
