Sunday Selfies: Week #152

We are dedicating our Sunday Selfies blog hop today to another of our dearest friends who received her angel wings a few days ago. Ellie (My wife Allie’s sisfur) is being honored today, so I am featuring her before I post my own selfie. I had Mom make a special photo of her to share with you. I want her to take centerstage today.


Sunday Selfies in memory of Ellie.


Ellie was only 15 years old, but she did have health issues that had worsened the last couple of weeks. She passed in Mom Sharon’s arms being stroked and told how much she was loved. That was the purrfect way to leave on her new adventure at the Rainbow Bridge with some of her fursibs and bunches of furiends. I know we’ve asked before, but if you haven’t had the opportunity to share a few kind words with Mom Sharon, Dad Bill, Allie and Raz, please drop by Friends Furever. While there can you please add some prayers, purrs and POTP for Dad Bill. Not only is he undergoing cancer treatment, but he also just landed in the hospital with a collapsed lung.

So I guess it is time for me to share my selfie. As usual I was prattling on about something when I snapped this, so my mouth is open. If I am awake, I am usually talking about something. Sorry I’m a bit blurry.


Sunday Selfies with Mau


In Other News

At dinnertime last night, Mom called Lily Olivia, Misty May and me in from the front porch where we were hanging out and relaxing. She suddenly noticed that mean, neighborhood cat was lounging in our driveway. Some of you may remember that  I have tangled with this meanie twice before resulting in me being bitten (Mauricio’s Boo-Boos and Bite on Butt Requires Vet Visit) both times. Mom and Meanie stared at each other for several seconds, and then Meanie went back across the street where he belongs. He took his time, however, continuing to stop, turn back and try to stare Mom down. We were already in the house. I am so grateful that guy wasn’t brave enough to come up on the porch, as I have no intention of putting up with his shenanigans.

Time to Hop

Bet you thought I’d forgotten this is a blog hop. No such luck. It is time for you to snap a selfie and show it off here. The link is below. You’ll also find the code below to add the hop to your blog if you’d like. If you do so, would you please be so kind as to post our badge and/or link back to The Cat on My Head.

Thank you to everyone who hops with us, whether it is regularly or just occasionally. And if you are new to the hop, welcome. Hope you join in often.

Until we meet again…ciao and meow, Mau

We were so heartbroken to hear about Ellie 🙁 Another sad loss for the cat blogosphere.

Oh Mau, we was very sorries to hear about Ellie, but glad she slipped away in her mama’s arms. It has been a tough week–again. The Florida Furkids have a lot to contend with right now. We is purring for their Dad & hope he gets home very soon.

Punapippuri was my bestest friend–we exchanged royal communiques almost every day and I really miss him. The remaining kitties have formed a rag-tag new gov’t and have reached out to Me as an ally. Negotiations are on-going. They won’t be the King, sigh, but we must needs remain allies with Finland(N)! XOXOXO

Pipo/Angel-Minko/MrJackFreckles July 10, 2017 at 2:15 am

We are purring and pawyering for Ellie’s Furmily at this sad time. And especially for their Dad. We hope he will be able to go home and feel a lot better soon.

That naughty meany should beware…but on the other paw we are glad you didn’t chase him…we don’t want to be hearing about bites and fights.

Very sorry to hear about Ellie! As to the meanie. I have a mean cat that comes to the yard and terrorizes Amarula sometimes so I always keep a spray bottle of water ready and spray the cat– now the cat runs just when he hears me shake the bottle! And he comes much less–you might want to give it a try!

LP July 9, 2017 at 10:48 am

Pam Greer July 9, 2017 at 7:59 am

Sending lots of love to Ellie’s family. Thank goodness that meanie cat doesn’t try to come up on your porch. We have a meanie cat too in our neighborhood and mom chases it away with a supersoaker water gun. Now, all she has to do is turn it on and it runs away.

Katie Isabella July 9, 2017 at 7:09 am

There is not a to worse than having mean kitties in near the house or worse still, right up to it. I had to deal with that the thirst year I was here after Admiral passed. I screamed my lungs out and mom had the windows on that side of the use covered with opaque covering for close to two years till I got a grip.

Peaches & Paprika July 9, 2017 at 5:56 am

Thank U for this beautiful tribute to Ellie. Such a beautiful description of her last hours we just want to cry. We are thinking of her and her family.

As for your neighborhood meanie we know all about it and congratulate you on staring her/him down successfully!!

What a week……….it’s been hard saying goodbye to so many – but we have more Angel friends now looking out for all of us. It’s a beautiful badge for Ellie – she was a pretty girl. As for you Mau – it looks like you are having quite a conversation with the camera or your Mom or maybe you’re just giving your Mom your dinner order????? We are keeping prayers going for Mr. Bill………

Love, Teddy

We’re the occasional type of Selfie Hoppers, but it’s fun the times we join , so thank you for hosting! (We just don’t want to blog hop much because we realized that blog hopping hindered our creativity, so it’s nothing to do with your blog hop itsself).

Hope you get your problems solved with this gangster neighbor! Sounds like a nightmare. What a bad and dangerous neighborhood you’re living in!!!!!!!

Ellie and her family are in our thoughts.

That neighbor kitty sure seems like a trouble maker – maybe your parents need a water squirter for him. Some people think that’s mean, but we think it’s better than lots of other deterrents!
Hope you all have an easy Sunday.
