Sunday Selfies: Week #95

We are incredulous! Not only did the female parental unit fail to mention Hug Your Cat Day yesterday but she and her male cohort also abandoned us for elebenty bazillion hours.* We know you’re wondering what could possibly be more impawtant than spending the day loving on us. NASCAR, movies and music that’s what. They deserted us to spend time with Ricky Bobby and Bruno Mars.

Now we know you are wondering what this all has to do with our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. Well…it seems that Ricky and Bruno are this week’s guest interlopers hosts for our hop. Here they are now.


Transport of Bruno Mars and Ricky Bobby


Oh, did we forget to mention that Bruno and Ricky are cats. Sorry!

Yesterday, our humans pawticipated in what our dad like’s to call the Underground Kitty Railroad. Mom and Dad belong to a group called Cuteheads, a kitty transport network. Though help was provided by the Cuteheads’ Dorian Wagner, this transport was from Angie Hills Boudreau, Cat Program Coordinator at the Humane Society of Forsyth County, GA, to Fancy Cats Rescue Team (Herndon, VA). There these FIV+, three-year-old boys will have a home until forever homes can be found.

Our humans drove to North Carolina to pick up these two and then brought them back to Roanoke, where they handed them off for the next leg of their journey. They are now happily checking out their new home at Fancy Cats.

We think these two boys resemble our two girls, Fiona and Lisbeth. What do you think?

Mom says Ricky was quiet and chill except for two little meows during the three-plus hours they were in Mom’s and Dad’s care. Bruno, however, spent the first hour talking constantly then fell quiet for the remainder of the trip. Traci, who handed off the boys to our parents, said he did exactly the same thing with her. When Mom and Dad gave the boys to Mary Ann for the next leg of their journey, Bruno burrowed under his beddy and pee pad. Guess he’d had enough stimulation.

Here’s a collage with a few other photos of the boys.

We actually apurrciate what our humans do to help other kitties. But we really don’t think Mom had to HUG these boys and give them mousie toys. MOUSES!

Cat4-001Anyhoo, this is our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop with interlopers. As always, we look forward to seeing your selfies. The link to join the hop is below as is the code to include the hop on your blog should you desire. Purrlease link back to The Cat on My Head and/or display our badge if you do this.

Purrs and paw-pats from the unhugged, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

* Editor’s note: Kitties Blue were only alone for about nine-and-a-half hours, and they didn’t even lift their heads when we got home.

We think your Mom and Dad are furry furry good Humans to take care of those boycats and help get them to safety. It *might* even be okay that they got to be in the Sunday Selfies today. But we are looking forward to seeing Misty May soon. And say, don’t we has a date pretty soon???

It sure was nice of you all to share your Mom & Dad for a few hours while they helped transport other kitties. I’m guessing they didn’t deplete your mouse supply too much 🙂 and you’ll get some extra treats and cuddles for being so tolerant of their “cheating” on you.

What gorgeous babies. It always warms my heart to find out about shelters that take in FIV+ cats. Back in the day, there were no resources for kitties like this. I’m just thrilled that’s changing.

This is so wonderful of your mom & dad! The lady and big guy did that once last year. It was fun to meet the others on the journey and help the kitty. This reminds the lady to be on the look-out for other opportunities. We sure hope these two get loving forever homes soon.

Ricky and Bruno sure did nice selfies. Mom drove for the Cuteheads once too. The problem is she only has a two seat car and can’t fit a lot of carriers. It was a very rewarding experience though!

First we has to give your parents lots of paws for helping out with Ricky and Bruno’s transport. It’s such impawtant work.

Now we are sort of bummed that we didn’t get to see a selfie of one of YOU, but Bruno and Ricky did great jobs posing for the pictures and paws crossed maybe their selfies will help them find their forever family, so we will forgive your Mom for not showcasing one of YOU this Sunday.

Yay! This time we did the blog hop thing right! For the last two weeks, Momma didn’t get the linky thing so people who came to our blog had a dead end. Oops. (Bear told Momma that one more mistake and she was FIRED!!!!) Thank you so much for hosting and for sharing your beautiful kitties and rescues with us. Since Bear was once homeless, he knows the beauty and security of a home, a full belly, and love. Hopefully, Ricky and Bruno will have the pleasure of all three soon.

That was very kind of your pawrents to help out! And we know you kitties really don’t mind the slight betrayal at all! :p We can’t seem join the hop for some reason we aren’t being accepted by the linky team 🙁 Hope all is well with all of you and your pawrents too. Lots of love to your Mama. She must be getting so excited about Blog Paws! Our Mama sure will miss seeing her this year.

Awesome job by your mom and dad to help Ricky and Bruno get to where they needed to go! We think those selfies are great, too.

Our mom and dad are part of the Cuteheads, too, though because of time/schedules/work, they have not been able to help for a while.

Meows, purrs, hugs and MOLs are greatly appreciated. Please no hissing, spitting or scratching unless you want one of us to whap you!
