Sunday Selfies: Week #454
A couple commenters yesterday mentioned that they were looking forward to today’s surprise. There really wasn’t going to be a surprise, other than the fact that one of us Kitties Blue had already snapped a selfie.
And that kitty was me, Sawyer. As Audrey got away with posting a snoozy selfie last Sunday, I decided I could do the same this week. I think I look cute awake or asleep.
Actually, we do have a surprise. Unfortunately, it is not a good one. Somehow Raleigh got out of the catio. When Mom and Dad called him for dinner last night, he didn’t come. Mom checked the upstairs catio and didn’t find him. They thought he must be inside on the second floor. A very short time later, Mom looked out the kitchen window and saw him under the catio. Of course, trying to get him to come to her or Dad was futile, and he finally disappeared with barely 30 minutes of daylight left.
Raleigh is a good-for-nothing bum, and he continually takes his collar off. As he hates being touched, it is often days before Mom or Dad can get it back on him. So he was and still is out somewhere without it.
Mom and Dad have set up our trap under the catio with both stinky goodness and tuna in it. Dad checked it at 10 p.m., but it still sat empty. Mom plans to check it every hour through the night. And she will start searching the neighborhood in the morning. Rain is in the weather forecast, which isn’t good, but might just tempt him to come home.
He’s also been posted as lost on PawBoost, our neighborhood forum and Facebook, and Mom has reported him missing to the microchip company.
To be honest, Mom does not expect to see him again. He may like getting three square meals a day as well as treats and free-feeding kibble, but he doesn’t like Mom or Dad or any other people for that matter. Don’t get me wrong, she wants him to come home or be found, but she is trying to be realistic.
After going through this with me, she doesn’t need any advice or suggestions on how to find him or get him home. But she and Dad ask you to please keep the little stinker in your prayers. She and Dad obviously do not want anything bad to happen to him.
National Tabby Cat Day
Cooper Murphy, Audrey and I are looking forward to being spoiled rotten today. Of course, that happens everyday. If Raleigh comes home, he’ll get the same treatment. What self-respecting tabby goes missing the day before our special day? Sheesh! Anyhoo, we wish all our tabby friends a treat- and fun-filled day, including lots of cuddles and play time.
Now that I have shared my adorable, snoozing selfie with you and filled you in on most of our news (Kizmet also escaped on Caturday, but as she wears her tracking collar, she was easily found and brought back in the house.), it’s time for you to snap your selfie and join our little hop. You know your friends will be looking for you, and you don’t want to let them down.
After that, you can enjoy a nice Easy Sunday and Tabby Cat Day.
Thanks for joining us today and being our friends.
Purrs and paw-pats, Sawyer (with whisker kisses to Noelle)
UPDATE: The little turkey returned home at 3:30 a.m. Mom heard some cat scratching franticly at the cat door. It was Raleigh on the outside. She and Dad had left the door to the catio open in case Raleigh came home. He went straight to the food bowl! Guess he gets to celebrate National Tabby Cat Day after all.
Thanks for your prayers!
Glad it ended well for Raleigh!
What a total relief to know Raleigh had the sense to come back! Looking epic Sawyer!

What a relief to know that Raleigh came home! Tabby Cat Day can be truly happy! We’ve had several lovely tabbies!
Have a happy Sunday everybody.!
That’s a great selfie, Sawyer. Makes me want to take a nap too. And I’m so happy to hear Raleigh is home again. What a stinker he is! ~Ernie
Cute selfie. I am so happy that Raleigh retuned home sfe and sound. Thank you for hosting. XO
We are so thankful that Raleigh had enough of the “free” life and came home. He’s like our stinker, Chia, who takes off when she gets a chance, so Mom and Dad understand how you felt. That’s a sweet selfie, Sawyer. Happy Tabby Cat Day!
Super Happy that Raleigh came home. Clearly has the bug for adventure like his namesake. What a lovely selfie, Sawyer. Snoozing cays are, we both think, the best image to have of contentment.
That’s a wonderful photo Sawyer! We’re sure glad that stinker Raleigh came back, must not have been that much fun out there after all.
Wow, what a stressful time. I’m glad to hear the happy ending and hope you catch up on your sleep tonight!
Such a relief to know Raleigh had the sense to come HOME.
Sawyer, that’s a lovely selfie. Really adorable. We bet Noelle loves it!
We knew he would come back, kitties. He may be a stinker, but he knows where his home is..with you😸 Double Happy Pawkisses to all of you sweet KittiesBlue🐾😽💞
Cranky cat or not, none should ever go lost, wanting and needing of course ~ so tis happy news he found his way home and hopefully will stay put now!
A beautiful sleepy selfie …
Happy National Tabby Cat Day! We were most happy to see the update that Raleigh was smart enough to know “there’s no place like home” for regular meals and safety. We guess he just wanted an adventure – and hopefully that’s the LAST one! We also love your selfie Sawyer…..snoozing away in the comfort of your home. Sending all of you hugs and hopes for a special Sunday.
Love, Teddy and Mom
That is a sweet selfie, Sawyer.
I am sorry Raleigh has got out and hope he does come to realise that maybe life is better indoors after all. Sending good wishes for his safe return.
Oh, we are not happy at all about Raleigh….so sad that some kittys are simply afraid and so not very approachable but maybe he will come back if you put a T-bone steak out somewhere….
We may be woofies, but we know to well about not being with our pawrents…we add our pawyers and so does petcretary that Raleigh will be found, and that he will be safe and sound. What a worry you have once again.
Sawyer, you look so comfy and cozy as you snooze!
We would not dare to be silly enough to try and advise you after your experience with Sawyer. We know it must be difficult for all of you with him being a challenge but, of course, we want him safe inside with you. He may not realise (yet) how lucky he is to find such a loving home.
Lots of hopes and good wishes for safe return of the little monkey.
Thank you, Marjorie.
Sawyer, we love your snoozy selfie. You look chill and handsome at the same time. And happy Tabby Day to you and your family.
We have our fingers and paws crossed for Raleigh to come back home. We’re so sad that he got out, and are purring for his safe return. XO
Thank you, Kevin. Paws crossed that he comes home.
