Sunday Selfies: Week #410

NOWNow and then: serious portrait of grey, tabby, Manx cat.


now and then: PawBoost missing poster of grey, tabby Manx cat.


That’s right…one year ago today I left on my unauthorized walkabout. I turned my mom and dad into stressed out, crazy people. That lasted for three and a half weeks.

As you can see, I have grown up a lot since then. Manx cats are not considered adults until they turn five years old. I will have my fifth birthday in a few days. Last year I missed my birthday. This year I have no intention of letting that happen.

I have been a good boy and not tried to escape. An electronic locator has been added to my collar just in case I get any wild ideas.

I am blessed that my mom and dad never gave up on me and kept searching and spreading the word that I was missing. And I am grateful for all the prayers said for me and the support each of you gave my parents. Mom has written many times in the past ten years about how wonderful the pet blogging community is, and I totally agree with her. Thank you.

Hopping Time

I sincerely hope you will join me today and post a selfie to share with us and all your friends. Posting today is not necessary. You can participate anytime between now and Thursday. Thanks for joining me today, dear friends. Enjoy an easy Sunday!

Purrs and paw-pats, Sawyer (with love and whisker kisses for Noelle)

Gee! A year already! I remember that and I am SO happy you came home.
I’m even happier you decided that staying put is best 😉
Good thing the locator was added to your collar…just in case 😉
Purrs, Julie

We are all so relieved you came home safe and sound. We know just a little of that scare from Chia disappearing overnight this month. Are you going to have a birthday party, Sawyer? Chia is having fireworks and everything when she celebrates her second birthday on July 4! XOX Xena, Lucy, Chia and Riley

Sawyer I don’t think ANYONE (most specially your Mom and Dad!) will ever forget you leaving for your extended walkabout. We all worried about you and it was just a miracle your Mom found you finally. I’m glad you have a locator on now but I have a feeling you won’t be going ANYWHERE – there really is “no place like home” !!

Hugs, Teddy

Oh man Sawyer, I think tht wa the longest time for all of us as we waited for your Mum and Dad to find you! How anxious they were and how we checked every day ‘If he back” “Has he been spotted?” WHERE IS SAWYER.

You BET you won’t miss your birthday this year young man!!
