Sunday Selfies: Week #164

It is with great sadness that I join you as host of Sunday Selfies, but I wanted to be here to honor our friend Phoebe. Before I do, Mom says that I need to share my selfie. I’m not smiling. This is my sad face.


Lily Olivua hosts Sunday Selfies.


I did have Mom add some hearts around my photo to show my love for Phoebe.

Phoebe was the main spokes cat for 15 And Meowing. She was the beautiful Purrincess to Purrince Siddhartha Henry at The Purrfect Pad. She loved treats, but most of all, Phoebe loved her grammie and her purrince. Phoebe was a member of the Crotchety Cougars Club, and her mom, Ellen, made the red hats for all the members. Phoebe had spunk and wit. She was loved by all who knew her. She was especially happy when she was told, “You are beautiful.” And she was!

Either Phoebe or one of her fursibs was always here for Sunday Selfies.

All the Kitties Blue are going to miss our sweet friend. So today, we honor and remember her.


Phoebe is remembered on the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop.

Rest in Peace our dear and beautiful friend, Phoebe. We love you.


Sadly we lost another friend a few days ago. The lovely (Erinn) Zuzu from Colehaus Cats. if you have not had the opportunity to stop by and offer your condolences, please do so. Her passing was sudden and totally unexpected.

Blog Hop

That’s right! Now it is time for you to share your magnificent selfie with all your friends on the hop. Here are a few guidelines for anyone new to the hop.

  • The link to add your selfie to the hop is below.
  • You also will find below the code to use if you’d like the hop to appear on your blog.
  • You do not need to post on Sundays to join.
  • The hop remains open for entries through Thursday midnight.
  • Please be so kind as to display our badge and/or link to The Cat on My Head.


As most of you know, our mom has been working for about 1 1/2 years on the committee planning her 50th high school reunion. Well the time is finally here. She is writing this for us early on Saturday morning as she’ll be busy Saturday night hugging and reminiscing with old friends. We may not get around to visiting, so if everyone else would please hop over to a couple of blogs your normally don’t visit, that would be most excellent.

Tomorrow we will have a guest post you won’t want to miss.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia

It was so sad to know that precious Phoebe had to become an angel kitty…she will be sorely missed and always treasured deep in the hearts of those who knew and loved her, bloggers included.
Lily Olivia, you made a thoughtful selfie to honor the memory of Phoebe and some other new angels too. What a sad week:(

We was very sad to hear about the beautiful Miss Phoebe. She was a lovely kitty and we know it will be very sad for Miss Ellen and the other kitties.
And we were just gobsmacked to hear about Zuzu who we know was a young girlcat still.

The Human has lost her share of kitties in her time, and she knows how much it hurts.

We hope your Mom has fun hanging out with her teenage friends….who aren’t teenagers anymore 😉

That’s a lovely tribute to your furpals Phoebe and Zuzu.


Chirpy Cats October 1, 2017 at 4:32 pm

What beautiful tributes to our friends who earned their wings. It’s never easy to lose our fur babies even when we know that their time is near and they lived wonderful happy lives.

We will surely miss Phoebe on the blogosphere and send our deepest healing purrs of comfort to her mom Ellen.

That is a beautiful picture of you Lily O. You look like a queen.

Phoebe was a bright ray of sunshine for our Crotchety Cougars Club. I will always wonder what Phoebe would say or think of an idea before I set it to the mouse. She will be missed by many as she touched so many hearts.

Lily Olivia, that is a lovely selfie, even though you were very sad in this photo. We understand. We, too, are heartbroken about our pals Phoebe and Zuzu going to the Bridge, and so soon after our Zoe. We hope they, and Fiona, are all friends there. Hugs and headbonks, dear ones.
