Sunday Selfies: Week #69


Swizzle wants a forever home for Christmas.


This is our most beautiful, PAWS (Pet Animal Welfare Society) of Connecticut, honorary Kitty Blue, Swizzle. We have featured her here often, and she is this week’s guest host for Sunday Selfies.

We have been sponsoring Swizzle for more than a year and a half, and she’d really like to have a loving and forever home in time to celebrate Christmas. Can’t you just see her lying under your tree waiting for Santa Paws to visit? What a wonderful Christmas that would make.

You may have seen Swizzle on the Animal Shelter Volunteer Life blog as well. Kevin (meowmeowmans) and Tracey are volunteers at PAWS and have shared her on their blog. The photos above were taken by Kevin. Kitties Blue and I are grateful that Kevin and Tracey visit Swizzle often and, along with other volunteers, give her lots of love. But we believe in our hearts that it is her turn to have the life she deserves in a loving home.

Swizzle was originally adopted from PAWS with her sister, who unfortunately has crossed the Bridge. She was returned to PAWS when her owner had to move to a “no-pets allowed” home. You can read my original post here. You can also visit her on the PAWS website.

Swizzle’s original information stated she was six years old. In reality she is about 11 1/2 years old, which Kevin confirmed in an e-mail to me this evening. I know this lessens her chances of finding a home, but if you have been thinking about adopting a senior kitty, please consider Swizzle. If you cannot provide her with a home, please share wherever you can and tell your friends about her.

Now it’s time for you to add your selfie to the blog hop. We know everyone is very busy with holiday preparations, but it only takes a minute or two to snap your photo. We are truly grateful to all of you who join us each week and always enjoy seeing what you have to offer. Last week besides the usual kitties and woofies and our Canadian donkey guest host, we were joined by a kangaroo, ponies and some ibex.

You can add your link below as well as get the code to post the hop on your blog. If you’d like to do this, I only ask that you display our Sunday Selfies badge and/or link to The Cat on My Head.

I have a soft spot for senior kitties like Swizzle. The love they have to give is truly amazing, and we get to skip some of the kitten nonsense when we take them home. Win-win!

We sure hope Swizzle finds a most loving and pawrfect new home, furevfur!!

We had to delve into our archives on account of that our confuser kind of conked out and needed to be left at the confuser hospital…now we cannot make images to send or make our Christmas cards, either…so we will have to send store bought ones…sigh…but at least we can still communicate after a fashion:))

Poor Swizzle, that’s so sad. We hope she finds a forever home very soon. Purrs

I hope Swizzle finds the perfect home. If it’s the right human-animal bond, being 11 years old won’t matter at all. We adopted Sammi when she was 10 years old and just had a leg amputated. Older pets are wonderful and you know their personality.

We just can’t believe that Swizzle hasn’t been adopted yet. We hope that someone will welcome her into their family before Christmas – she more than deserves it. She has been waiting so patiently. We also are featuring an adoptable kitty for Sunday Selfies today.
Sampy sends a kiss to Astrid for every adoptable kitty in the world, and we all send lots of love!

Swizzle is such a beauty…love those yellow eyes! We will share her and hope she finds her home very soon. We think 11 is not so old for a cat, she could have many, many years left and seniors make such wonderful pets.

Swizzle is a pretty kitty, and we hope that she finds a wonderful home in time for Christmas! It makes me sad that being a senior makes a cat less adoptable in most people’s eyes. Seniors are precious and wonderful! We will share her on our Pinterest board for adoptable kitties. 🙂

I remember Swizzle so well. My heart breaks for her and the other cats waiting and waiting BUT….with loving volunteers such as Kevin and Tracey, the wait for a home whoe there at the Shelter is made so much better. They get loves, petting and time in a lap and some kisses. I am so grateful for the volunteers, especially Kevin and Tracy who try so hard to get these babies a home.

When the Cat is Away December 6, 2015 at 3:00 am

Thank you for sponsoring a cat in need. I hope she’ll find her forever home soon.

(… and I really hope that her former owner feels very bad about this. It makes me angry that people give their pets so easily away. I don’t know the very story of this human, but you just don’t move to a flat without making sure your pets can be with you. And if you really don’t have any choice, find a new family for yout cat!)

Thank you for sponsoring our sweet pal Swizzle, for loving her, and for featuring her so often on your wonderful blog. She really is a great kitty, and we love her very much. We’re always sure to spend some special time with her (in fact we did so today). We, too, are purring and praying for a home for the holidays for Swizzle. Much love to you all, dear friends. We appreciate you so, so much.
