Sunday Selfies: Week #126

As promised, we have a guest host today…but not the one I planned. My intention was to share Charlotte with you. Charlotte is the kitty we are now sponsoring at PAWS Connecticut. As you may recall, Swizzle (our previously sponsored kitty) was adopted in November. I had selected two others to sponsor, Pumpkin and Miss Piggy, but before arrangements had been made, they both found their forever homes.

As I procrastinated through the holidays with the thought of selecting cats this month, PAWS assigned us another cat. She is a gorgeous,  3 1/2 year old calico. I may or may not select a second cat based upon what happens with the tabby cat who is your guest host today.

Meet guest kitty.


ginger tabby guest hosts Sunday Selfies


He apologizes that none of these photos are actually a selfie, but it seems to be a concept to which our guest is unfamiliar.

Guest kitty is a neutered male. I estimate he is about two years old. As you can see, he is a handsome ginger tabby.

Our guest showed up a few days ago at our friend’s house. She didn’t recognize him from the neighborhood. As she has three dogs, none of who seemed amenable to tabby coming in the house, she called us this morning. Today’s high temperature was in the low 20s and the next two nights are predicted to be in the low teens. With about five inches of snow on the ground, she knew our guest could not remain outside.

Tom put on his snow gear, grabbed the SleepyPod and headed out on foot…around the corner about six houses away. Since his return home, our guest as been secluded in the living room with me.

He’s a lap cat with a roaring purr and has settled in as if he owns the place. Astrid and C.J. (pictured) have spied him through the pocket doors with interest. No hissing or growling ensued on either side of the door.

Tom posted him on Facebook, and the post was shared 75 times. I listed him on our regional lost/found web-site. He is not listed there or in our newspaper as lost, and no posters are evident in our neighborhood. But we just received an e-mail and call (Saturday night at 9:30 p.m.) from someone who saw him on the Barn Cat Buddies Facebook page and thinks he might be her cat who has been missing for about a week. If so, his name is Charlie, and he is five years old. She’ll be coming to the house tomorrow to see him.

So many questions: Is he Charlie? (He didn’t respond when I called him that.) Will he be leaving tomorrow? Will Kitties Blue become eight again? Did Fiona send him to us? As soon as we have some answers, we’ll let everyone know. So stay tuned.

Cat4-001And now…drumroll, please! It is time for you to post your selfie and hop with us. The link is below as is the code you can use to add the hop to your post if you’d like. If you have difficulty doing any of these things, let me know in the comments, as I can usually fix and edit everything in Linky Tools. And don’t forget: If you can’t get here today, the hop remains open through midnight on Thursday.

Let your friends know we are here as all anipals are welcome.

If you would include our badge and/or link back to The Cat on My Head in your post, it would put a smile on all the kitties’ faces. Thanks for your support and friendship.

How wonderful of you guys to take this handsome boy in for the time being. Careful though… that’s how we ended up with both Sassy and Caster! MOL! That’s wonderful that Swizzle was adopted. We missed that news. Give your house guest some hugs and loving from us! Sampy sends a billion million kisses to Astrid!

I’m sorry Not Charlie is not. Charlie. and his possible family were disappointed. I hope their Charlie goes back to them. Not Charles OK with you – especially iffy it is cold outside.

Thank you.

What a sweet kitty. I do hope he finds his forever home. I have a ginger Charlie and after six years, he still doesn’t answer when I call! 😛 If I yell his name loud enough, he may look at me and then go back to whatever he was doing at the time! LOL!

I am so glad you took this sweet tabby in out of the cold. I am glad that he is settled in and feeling loved by your family. I have paws crossed he is not the missing cat Charlie and can adopt your family. I am hoping that someone else has Charlie and he will find his owners soon.

The Menagerie Mom January 8, 2017 at 9:52 am

Oh, I love me some orange tabby! I will certainly be eagerly awaiting to learn what comes of the maybe-not-Charlie situation. This story sounds so familiar, as my parents’ newest kitty is an orange tabby who showed up at their front door, nobody claimed, and so he became part of their crew. I will be introducing my parents’ new orange tabby on our blog soon, and I wonder if you’ll be introducing this little guy as one of your own soon? Either way, purrs and many kudos to you for taking in this sweet little fella! Warm wishes to all of you!

He is very cute and sounds like a realty sweetie. I hope you become 8 again 🙂 If he is not Charlie, you should make sure he isn’t microchipped just to be sure before your fall in love, although, it sounds like you already did. XO

Dang, such a handsome guy! I’d say, if it is Charlie, he much prefers your lap instead of a cold barn. Good luck handsome one. Oh, yes, Fiona had a paw in it, even if it was just to help him out.

Well I hope the mystery is solved soon……either way things go, I’m SURE Fiona sent him to you – either for shelter until his family found him OR to join the Kitties Blue where she spent her years surrounded by love. I can understand it either way – Fiona is hard at work here at the Bridge!! Either way, bless you for helping him……..AND Happy Sunday!

Summer January 8, 2017 at 3:37 am

Wow, I can’t wait to find out more about this maybe-Charlie cat. I really do hope that he IS Charlie, ’cause I’d hate for this woman’s cat to still be out there in the cold. I’d prefer to see him warm and happy, with good caretakers (you guys) until he can be retrieved.

That orange tabby is handsome! How wonderful it would be if it IS Charlie, and he can be reunited with his people thanks to your efforts.

Thank you so much for sponsoring Charlotte. She’s a really nice kitty, and as you mentioned, beautiful. I’m about to send you an email about a new development we just found out about. Stay tuned.

Hugs to you all, dear ones.
