Sunday Selfies: Week #349

Yesterday was Tortoiseshell Cat Appreciation Day, and I missed it. That kind of thing happens a lot around here. With two torties living with us, I feel super guilty for this boo-boo. To make up for it, I have two selfies today: dilute tortie, Calista Jo, and Astrid.




I was a bit surprised they were cooperative after finding out I had missed their special day. But as I always say, “Cats are predictably unpredictable.”

Hopping Time

You don’t need to be a tortie to join us. In fact, you don’t even need to be a cat. All anipals are welcome regardless of species. So get busy and take those selfies. You know all your friends and admirers will be here looking for you. And remember, you don’t need to post on Sundays to join us. The hop is available through Thursday.

Prayers Please

Lisbeth’s longtime boyfriend, Cat Scout Charles, has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, which has metastasized. Lisbeth and all of her fursibs, as well as Dad Tom and I, are devastated by this news. We deeply love this special kitty. We are asking all humans to send prayers, all kitties to send purrs, and all anipals to send POTP, as Charles spends his last days being loved and spoiled by his humans.



Thank you. We’ll be back tomorrow for Sparks and Awww Mondays.

Gorgeous tortie ladies! Loads of purrs to sweet Charles.

Charles April 18, 2021 at 6:02 pm

Calista Jo and Astrid you are two of the most beautiful torties I know. Don’t feel bad about your mom forgetting such an important day. I have a sisfur who is torture on top and calico on the bottom and my mom forgot about the day too. This happens when you are part of a large family.
I also want to thank the Kitties Blue especially my sweetheart, Ms Lisbeth Blue,for sharing my story. All your purrs and prayer very much appreciated.

Years ago Momma rescued a tiny tiny spider-like kitten from a bin of kittens at the mall. There had to be 50 kittens stuffed inside a cage. And one kitten was so tiny, she was drowning. Momma bought her, and named her Mandy. Mandy had a lot of nervous issues because she clearly was the product of reckless breeding. Mandy lived to be around 7 when she got cancer in her stomach lining. The vet couldn’t find what was wrong until the autopsy. So very sad. And hearing about Charles breaks our hearts at Wonderpurr. We love you all! Dori

We do not know Charles well but we can empathise hugely with his devastating diagnosis. This is cruel news indeed.

It’s good to see torties though and our Sienna (who was our T.A.D. star yesterday) says hello.

Beautiful selfies, ladies!!

That is very sad about Charles. We send our soft aroos and licks and wags to cheer him up and his family too. And we are adding a huge load of the good old POTP. May he yet have many days to enjoy life with his family and we give our wags to Lisbeth, too.
Does he have a blog we can visit to eave our message?

You two are the best looking tortie cats we know.

We are beside ourselves with grief over Charles sad news. We have known Charles for many years and he is Shoko’s brother from an American mother. Lisbeth you are in our nightly prayers as Charles is. We are sure that Charles last days will be happy ones with his family.

Toby Tomcat April 18, 2021 at 12:09 am

You two gals are picture perfect for Tortie day. We are all purring Charles has many good days with his family
