Sunday Selfies: Week #386


topsy turvy selfie


Our monkey cat, Kizmet, is being silly again in her topsy turvy selfie. She has nothing else to offer, as she wants to remember our friend and new angel, Gracie.

Remembering Gracie

We first met Gracie when Mau joined Cat Scouts. They ended up in the same Patrol (Wolverines) where Gracie served as leader. Cooper Murphy and Sawyer got to know her when they joined the Tabby Cat Club, which Gracie established. She also had her own blog, Goodness Gracie. You can drop in there to leave your condolences for Gracie’s human parents, Steph and Bruce.


Angel Gracie
15 January 2009 ~ 4 January 2022


These beautiful memorial graphics were created by Pam (Two Spoiled Cats) and Ann (Zoolatry).

Gracie was also the creator and Shelter Keeper of the VSquillions. And most importantly for us, she was Allie’s Maid of Honor when Allie married Mau.

Gracie had a big purrsonality and presence on the internet. We will miss her very much, but she’ll remain in our hearts always.

Hopping Time

Kizmet invites all anipals to join our hop. All the Kitties Blue love seeing their friends each Sunday, and equally enjoy welcoming newcomers. If you are too busy to pop in today or don’t normally post on Sundays, you can join the hop anytime through Thursday.

Kizmet, herself, will not be joining the hop until sometime later in the morning, as I am just too tired to stay up until midnight. But, please, don’t wait for her. Jump right in when you arrive.

Kitties Blue thank each of you for your friendship and support.

Kizmet is very cute and flirtatious! I remember Gracie from the Tabby Cat Club. So sad to hear that she has gone.
My blogging problems are fixed! Yay!

Gigi and Buddy and the Human January 9, 2022 at 10:04 am

Kizmet, What a wonderful selfie! You are a very beautiful gray girl and the Human says you remind her of a kitty from The Before Times named Mr. Teeth (who despite his name was a VERY handsome boy!) You know, I dunno what’s with her and the cat names: Mr. Teeth? Spitty? All I can say is, I’m glad I came with my own name already and so is Buddy. Sheesh! Who knows what ridiculous names we might be called??
We are very sorry to hear about your friend Gracie–the Human remembers her from when Spitty was in Cat Scouts. We will go leave a note for his Humans. XOXO from us!

Gracie was the best. Scylla & Chimera were both in the tabby cat club with her and Chimera went to Scouts with her. Gracie took her under her wing and encouraged her to come to Scouts and have fun.

Kizmet you look great today.

Kizmet is a real cutie.

We are heartbroken about Gracie. She was so special and such a big part of our lives. Our Angel Tamir was her boyfriend before he went to the Bridge and we all had such fun together at Scouts and, as you mentioned, she was a huge part of Angels Allie and Mau’s wedding. We miss her so much.

The Florida Furkids with love and whisker kisses to Sawyer from Noelle

Teddy January 9, 2022 at 5:41 am

Our Selfie today is a little WEIRD – we let our snow take center stage today since it’s kept us trapped for days….it’s gorgeous but it’s cold and it’s STAYING so we decided to let it be the star. Kizmet looks cute as can be with her selfie! Of course we are sad about Gracie flying to the Bridge – everyone is – we’ve lost WAY WAY too many friends lately.

Hugs, Teddy

Far too many new angels…what a sad start to this new year.
