Sunday Selfies: Week #103


Sisters Fiona and Giulietta present a twofur for the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop.


Today I have a two-fur of the most gorgeous sisters, Fiona and Giulietta. I selected this frame in PhotoFunia not knowing the photo would be turned into a painting as well. Aren’t they exquisite? It makes me sad to know they will not grow old together. They love each other so much. Even on these hot days they can be found cuddled together.

Today I worked in the yard for a couple of hours. Even though it was super H-O-T, I allowed Fiona to join me as she loves it so much. It was wonderful to see her exploring and enjoying herself. Watching her roll around on the driveway relishing the coolness of the concrete warmed my heart. She is truly a special girl.

Seven months have now passed since Fiona was diagnosed with Stage 4 CKD. When we left our vet’s office that day, I was not optimistic about her chances to survive for anything more than a very short time. In the scheme of things, seven months is a very short time but more than I expected. Many of you have written me about your cats. Some have survived as many as three years with CKD. We are blessed to have had these seven months, but I want more and pray she can survive as long as others have. So I continue to ask for your purrs, prayers and POTP for my sweet girl.




This is our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. The link to add your post to the hop is below. We had a great turnout last week with just short of 60 participants. Thanks for the continued support and interest in doing this hop.

That really is a beautiful picture. Do you have a way to print it out? I know I’d want to keep it. And I know what you mean about chronic illnesses. It’s hard to just watch and wait and wonder. I know you’re doing all you can, and I hope your kitty feels well enough to stay with you for a long time yet. She really is special.

Fiona and Guilietta this reminds us of all the antique paintings we have seen and we can’t help but think how gorgeous this selfie is of the two of you. Fiona we are glad you are doing so well and we purr & pray that you continue to have many many many good days ahead.

The Menagerie Mom July 31, 2016 at 9:07 am

Fiona and Guilietta, this is beyond gorgeous! I’m certain it was a beautiful photo to begin with, but the painting effect is so purrfect.

Fiona, I am so glad that you enjoyed some outdoor time with your mom! I know CKD is a scary diagnosis and disease. But, you’re a tough girl, Fiona, with your mom and dad and a whole army of friends behind you. We never know what tomorrow holds, but we will continue to purr and pray every day that you will indeed grow old with your sister.

This is a stunning picture of your two beautiful girls. We cared for our Simba for well over three years and his quality of life was very good until just the very end. He ended up having fluids daily among a few other things added at the later stages.

How lovely that she spent time with you outdoors enjoying herself. I truly hope she has much more time with her family.

Beautiful photo! We are purring and praying for Fiona. And we totally understand what you are going through. They said Merlin had 1-3 months to live and it’s now been almost 6 months since his diagnosis, so we are delighted! When we lose him it will be too soon, but we are just enjoying however much time we have left together.

What a gorgeous photo effect AND frame for the girls……in fact, it’s the kind of photo that really COULD be an actual “on the wall” work of art. They are beautiful together. We hope you have Fiona in the family for a LONG time to come – she just might beat all odds…..there is always, ALWAYS hope. We send POTP and keep her on our prayer list always.

Love, Sammy

I can understand your fears only too well ! This week my 18 year old Pookie had all the signs that she would die, I called the vet and she got up, walked to her food bowl and the vet decided that she could still make it for a while. What a shock !

Layla Morgan Wilde July 31, 2016 at 2:20 am

That is a stunning treasure forever. Btw, CKD is easier to treat than ever and more options. Our Merlin lived for 5 years after the diagnosis and died at age 21 and 7 months. We used homeopathy, RenAvast and other supplements. Some raw, some prescription food, no fish. Eventually daily sub-q and Reiki.
