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!
