Sunday Selfies: Week #168

My humans say I can be a little bitchy, er witchy! I do have a tendency to be hissy and growly when others get in my way. Because of this and the fact that Halloween is now just two days away, Mom couldn’t keep her paws off of my very lovely selfie. Pffft!


Lisbeth celebrates National Cat Day and Halloween.


To add insult to posting me in a witch’s had, I heard a rumor about a rude and unflattering thing Astrid said about me in her post yesterday. If anyone knows what that was, please let me know in the comments. Other than spilling their guts that it happened, no-one will tell me what she said.

Enough about Astrid. She’s not worth my time.

National Cat Day – USA

Today is National Cat Day, which is celebrated each year on October 29. It was created in 2005 by Colleen Paige, Pet Lifestyle Expert and Animal Welfare Advocate. Since its inception, National Cat Day has helped save the lives of more than one million cats.

Paige established this day in an effort to assist the public in recognizing the number of cats needing to be rescued. Additionally, the day encourages cat lovers to celebrate the cat(s) in their lives for their companionship and the unconditional love they willingly give.

The National Cat Day web-site lists 20 things we can do today to celebrate and help kitties. I’ll be spending extra time today snuggling with and giving all the Kitties Blue special attention and love. As we have a full house and cannot add any kitties to the family, I’ll be sending a donation to our favorite rescue, Barn Cat Buddies.

In conjunction with #NationalCatDay, BLUE BUFFALO is sponsoring the “Purr-fect Purr-sonalities” PHOTO CONTEST. You have until 11:59 pm (ET) tonight to enter. Winners will be notified by November 11th and announced on social media when all winners have responded.

To enter, log onto Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and include #BlueBuffalo and #NationalCatDay with your uploaded image of your cat, depicting their best PURRsonality trait.  Photo must be of your own cat. Once a photo is submitted, it cannot be changed or modified. To purrticipate, you must live in the 50 United States, the District of Columbia or Canada. You must be at least 18 years old at the time of entry.

Three “PURRfect PURRsonalities” winners may be featured on the Blue Buffalo Facebook page and will receive an assortment of Blue Buffalo products, Blue Gear and National Cat Day Gear.
