Sunday Selfies: Week #107


Remembrance Day 8.28.2016 Angels


First, I must apologize: I promised a guest host for today, but I had forgotten that the 28th is reserved for Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. So, our guest will be here next week. This week we are featuring the nine Kitties Blue and one honorary Kitty Blue who have their angel wings. Each are featured on our The Felines page as well where you can read their short bios.

Here are the nine who came before.


Our nine angels.


Each had his or her own unique personality, and they all hold a special place in my heart. I will love them always. I have a little memorial for our angels in one of our backyard gardens, which I will share on another day.

And here is our honorary Kitty Blue, Nylablue, who is also a beautiful angel. We were so honored to have her as part of our family. Losing her was like losing one of my own kitties. She too is featured on The Felines page.


Angel Nylablue


We have lost many furry friends during the four years we have been blogging. You can see many of them on our Remembering Friends page. We think of them fondly everyday but especially today.

Cat4-001Though a bit unconventional, this is our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. Please feel free to include one of your angels in the hop this week if you like. This, of course, is not a requirement but rather an opportunity to share. As always the link to add your selfie and the code to include the hop on your blog are below. And also, as always, if you decide to do the latter, please include our badge or link back to The Cat on My Head. If you have any trouble linking up, leave us a comment. I am always happy to add your selfie.

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day was created by Deb Barnes (Zee and Zoey’s Cat Chronicles) in memory and honor of her kitty, Jazz. We are honored to display her badge at the beginning of our post. She too is having a blog hop today. Click on the link above to add your angel(s) to her hop.

Have a blessed Sunday as you remember those you have lost but will hold forever in your heart.

So many beautiful faces to remember. And I can’t help but be sad that you’ve experienced so much loss in just 4 years. I hope you’re free of such sadness this year.

What a lovely tribute to the angel Kitties Blue. We didn’t do a Rainbow Bridge post but we’re remembering those who came before us too.

Spitty the Kitty August 29, 2016 at 11:45 am

Such beautiful angel kitties! Unfortunately, until I came along, the Human was not much of a picture-taker so pictures of the Kitties Who Came Before are very few and far between, but the Human loved them, one and all–a special shout-out to Mr. Teeth, the most soft and silky lovey kitty there ever was! XOXOXO to all of you and your Mom too!

Such a lovely tribute of the beloved kitties who came before. Thank you for loving them so much, and for sharing them with us.

We had planned on participating in Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day, but then Zoe had her little episode. She seems to be doing well, so thank COD for that.

We always think about those furbabies no longer with us physically, but today was a very special day to remember them in a special way.

The Daily Pip August 28, 2016 at 6:53 pm

Thanks for sharing all your beautiful angels with us. Madison looks very much like our Sweet Pea who passed away in September of 2012. Sweet Pea did not have blue eyes, but otherwise they look so much alike.

I somehow missed that this was Remembrance Day …but I am enjoying meeting everyone else’s angel kitties and doggies.

Flynn August 28, 2016 at 5:39 pm

I am back to clarify your question about aspirin. It is toxic to cats because their bodies don’t break it down properly, so it takes a long time to clear the body which can lead to a build up. However it can be given but only in very low doses. Our vet stressed to me that it MUST be the 75mg low dose aspirin, and only once every 3 days for a limited time. Three days gives it chance to clear the body before the next dose is given. Hopefully Flynn will only need one more dose and this is beneficial for him if he has had a blood clot.
After speaking to our vet again tonight, he is slightly more hopeful that it was not an embolism that he suffered.

What a beautiful group! So much love there! I love that you have a Remembering Friends page too, that is such a sweet idea. I don’t usually write posts about our blog friends’ losses, because I’m afraid I’ll miss someone and don’t want hurt feelings; but maybe I will start something like that, because I still always feel like I want to do something special for them.

It’s certainly better for them where they are now, instead of suffering and being sick with us. Anyway they will always stay in our hearts and there are always stories to tell about them to remember !

We think it is wonderful that you have been graced with so many felines! Mommy should sit down and count hers out…21 in total (so far)! Mommy says the only place she doesn’t mind dusting is her Remembrance Shelf, with photos and ashes of all the ones who came before. Every kitty is precious.
