Sunday Selfies: Week #150

Mom asked me to do a selfie so I could thank everyone for all the wonderful birthday wishes. I am more than happy to say, “thanks,” but I wasn’t too happy about the selfie thing. First she woke me up from a nap. I snapped off two quick photos then. They were crummy. Then she interrupted my bath. At that point I decided to accommodate her, just so I could get back to my ablutions. However, I refused to look at the screen as I snapped my photo. So today, I am giving you a profile selfie. I actually think it turned out very well.

In addition to thanking all my furiends for the birthday wishes, I must thank my special friend, Zorro (The Swiss Cats), for the nose kisses. I am blowing kisses back to him.

Remembering Friends

I also have the privilege today of dedicating this Sunday Selfies post to two furiends who recently received their angel wings, Minko (Meezer’s Mews and Freckles’ Woofs ) and Bilbo (Da DB Boyz). Both of these anipals are members of families who have been long-time supporters and participants in Sunday Selfies. If you have not had the opportunity to visit their blogs and leave your condolences, I hope you will do so now.

Remembering Minko on Sunday Selfies blog hop.
Remembering Bilbo on the Sunday Selfies blog hop.

Rest in peace, sweet friends.

And I have one additional duty today…

What a lovely profile you have, Calista Jo. The furbabies around here are saying that you did a fantastic job refusing to look at the camera. That’s one of their favorite moves, too!

And many purrs and prayers to the families of angels who have recently gained their wings.

Calista Jo, we rather like your profile selfie! Very chic, we must say. 🙂

We’ll go and visit Minko and Bilbo’s families now. It is so hard to say goodbye when a furbaby has to go to the Bridge.

Thank you for hosting each week, dear pals. Love and hugs.
