Sunday Selfies: Week #288

Our lovely but disheveled, grey kitty, Giulietta, is here with a shy selfie today.


Sunday Selfies


Admittedly, this is not Giulietta’s best selfie, but she is not the star of the show today. She is here to help Kitties Blue say good-bye to a great friend and another grey kitty.

Elder States Cat, Buddy Budd, received his wings and  joined his beloved Kali (The Canadian Cats) at the Rainbow Bridge, just two weeks after celebrating his 20th birthday. We are all thankful to have known Buddy Budd, and we will never ever forget him.



Buddy’s dad, Pete, wrote a beautiful tribute post for him, filled with wonderful photos and memories. Rather than repeating those things here, we ask you to visit and leave your condolences (if you’ve not already done so) for Dad Pete and the Tomcat gang, Timmy, Miss Fitz, Toby, Rumpy and Einstein, by clicking on Buddy Budd’s photo.

After you have done that, we invite you to return and join our Sunday Selfies blog hop. You don’t have to post on Sunday to join, and the hop remains open through Thursday.

Kitties Blue and I are looking forward to seeing all your smiling faces before you retire for a nice Easy Sunday.

You were all so fortunate to have Buddy Bud for 20 years!!! My goodness.
I clicked on the photo and was told that it might not be a safe site and so I went back. You might wish to look into that because I wanted to leave condolences but was nervous about it. Much love from Loulou and family.

Giulietta dear furiend, thank you for hosting this blog hop.
Seems to me that we’re missing way too many good furiends…. I’m wondering if humans are in dire need of guardian angels.

We were very sad when we heard about Buddy Budd. He had a great life and Dad Pete did an amazing memorial for him.

We think that’s a beautiful selfie.

That is a sweet selfie of you Giulietta! Makes mom and I smile.

Mom and I were just devastated that Angel Buddy Budd flew away. It was heartbreaking. We will miss him always. His Dad honored him with a beautiful tribute. Mom has tears again thinking of that loving tribute to Buddy Budd.

That was so sad to know that after reaching the amazing age of twenty, BuddyBudd had to become an Angel Kitty. I have know that family since 2009.

Giulietta you made a very pretty selfie!

We will certainly miss Buddy Budd too – he had a long life with his loving family, Mr. Pete and the kitties. They stuck together in tough times and fun time and made all of us happy when we’d visit them. I know Buddy Budd was surrounded by all the Angels when he arrived at the Bridge and that he will keep a close eye on his family always and forever.

Hugs, Teddy
