Sunday Selfies: Week # 172

We were totally looking forward to having Mom and Dad home from Atlanta. They left us on Tuesday to spend Thanksgiving with family. Of course, we were in good hands. Chris spoiled us with nip and treats and even wished us a Happy Thanksgiving on Thursday. Mom checked in often through the PetCube cam, talked to and played red dot with us. Guess it could have been worse…


Check out this “selfie.”

Interloper requests selfie.

Moments after entering the house, Dad found a note from Chris about a stray kitten she’d been feeding the last couple of days. She had set it up in a box with warm blankets on the deck of the vacant house next door. Before we could blink or meyowl our protests, the kitten was set up in our living room with all the comforts of home.

The kitten is a totally human-socialized, grey tabby Manx. Mom thinks it is a boy, but didn’t want to be too intrusive. After all, they just met.

Kitty has the sniffles and maybe a bit of a weepy eye. Mom has already posted a photo and description on our neighborhood forum. We all have our paws crossed that this little interloper will be claimed. She will post on all the other on-line lost and found pet sites later today.

As you can see, this baby needed help with a selfie. We know all of you are masters of the selfie and can probably manage on your own. So…what are you waiting for? Get that selfie snapped and added to the hop.

Big News Tomorrow

We are now participating in the Sparks blog hop each Monday. This hop was established and is hosted by our friend, Annie, from McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks is an opportunity to post an inspirational quote and/or photo as a pick-me-up for your fellow bloggers. Ours for tomorrow will include some exceptionally great news, so we are inviting everyone to visit. Surprises are so much fun…don’t you think? Well, maybe surprises that don’t include a kitten in the living room.

Anyhoo, until then…

With purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

OMC! A gift from the heavens! Poor little kittie. Is Chris sure there’s only one? There’s a site called NextDoor.com where you can post lost and found pets and other stuff. That’s where TW found out where Leonardo lived. Good luck finding his home. When you take him to the vet for the sniffles, you can see if there’s a chip.

Wow, what a surprise! She or he ended up in the right neighborhood, with kind caring people. I’m always surprised how many cats at PAWS are listed as “strays” and yet they are totally friendly sweet cats. It’s a mystery whether they were lost or left behind.
Thank you for hosting the kitten and the Hop!

Mom and Dad will for sure try and keep the family happy during this little bit of stress so look for treats and cuddles. See this is really a cloud with a gray tabby manx treat and cuddle lining!

Thank goodness that Chris found this precious baby and that you are now taking care of him (or maybe her). Paws crossed you find its home soon. Purrs from Deb and the Zee/Zoey gang.


Teddy November 26, 2017 at 5:10 am

Oh what a cutie! A poor little lost Manx……we sure hope wherever the little baby is supposed to be is looking for him or her and that home awaits. Meanwhile, he/she certainly has a safe and warm spot to be with you. Hope it’s not sick but who knows how long it was on its’ own before Chris helped. Good luck finding it’s home – we are sending POTP. We are also glad that your Mom and Dad had a good time away but by now they realize “there’s no place like home” (which is what that little kitty hopefully will feel soon!!!!!).

Hugs, Teddy

Hey, that interloper is a pretty cute kitty. We sure do hope you can help it find it’s home very soon. Thank you to your awesome mom for caring for it, and trying to help it.

We’re so glad Mom and Dad had fun in Atlanta for Thanksgiving, and even MORE glad that they are back home with you all, Kitties. Thank you for hosting the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop.

Much love and big hugs!
