Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! I have lots to tell you, but Mom is going to interrupt this post for day 2 of The 3 Day Quote Challenge.

I have been nominated by Annie of McGuffy’s Reader, to participate in the “Three Day Quote Challenge”. The rules of the challenge are simple. They are as follows:

1. Post for three consecutive days.
2. Choose and share one or three quotes each day.
3. Challenge three additional bloggers each day.

Today is day 2 and it says to post for 3 consecutive days ( sorry Phoebe). Today’s quote is from James Altucher who I think of as my guru. He is a man who has failed many times, but always keeps trying.

“The more grateful you are, the more you attract things to be grateful for.”

And my 3 nominees today are : Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries and Meows, Peaches and Paprika , Four-Legged Furballs  .  No pressure on any nominees, only participate if you have time.

Now back to Phoebe. 031My bikini is back and officially retired. Thank you to all who participated: Critters in the Cottage , The Florida Furkids, Lucy’s Lounge , The Kitties Blue , Christy Paws  Miss Mudpie and The Canadian Cats . If you missed any, just click on the names and you will go to their bikini posts.

I didn’t see Grammie yesterday, but she sent a bag of treats home with Mom for me. I love her so very much. I love my purrince too!

And here are a few selfies for The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfies Hop:

032 Penny

025Sammy kept his eyes open this time

042 Who is this? This is the feral Mom wrote about yesterday. Some friends that live 2 miles away had asked us for a trap because they have 4 ferals around.. Mom borrowed one and volunteered to take them all in to get fixed. They want to keep this one if she is willing to stay inside- and good thing because I heard Mom talking and she said she is already in love and wants to keep her.

One more thing—thanks for the ideas on hiding the vet reminder, but it was too late. I have to go to the vet on Tuesday and Joanie is coming too. She has a little bump on her ear that Mom wants checked.



  1. You have such nice selfies here. That stray is a beauty. I wish you the best on getting them all vetted. That is an important task. Hugs!
    *P.S. The toys are a hit. Especially with George and Chloe Jo! Thank you. ❤

    1. Thank you- she is still very scared, but she is eating. I am glad George and Chloe Jo are enjoying their toys. Hugs to you too!

  2. Geh. Thursday? Poor you!!

    We love today’s quote – and it’s true! <3 THank you for showing the feral (who is maybe soon not feral anymore). We love that your Mom is engaged and helps out – thank you from us, who have been found wild and homeless last February. Now we've a great home, and we're grateful that we can live here with our new Mom.

  3. I love the photo of Penny! So pretty. The new kitty looks pretty, too. I wonder what her name will be? Pawkisses to Penny, Love, Toby

    1. They have been calling her Fluffy when they put out food so I guess that will be her name. Penny says thank you and sends her love.

  4. Good job on your challenge today……….AND good job on the selfies too! I bet you’re glad to have your bikini back home Phoebe – does it have smells on it from all the kitties who have worn it as it traveled???? The feral kitty the neighbors want to try and keep inside is beautiful……pretty long furs. Hope the visit to the vet turns out OK too…………..

    Love, Sammy

    1. Thank you. I am glad the bikini is home, it has soo many smells on it. I think I will get a traveling hat for this summer so the boys can participate too. XO and love to you too my dear friend Sammy.

  5. Phoebe, you look so cute. Pierrot had fun with the traveling bikini.

    Penny & Sammy’s selfie are great too! The feral girl is beautiful!

    Pierrot sends a nuzzle to sweet Snowball.

    1. Thank you. We enjoyed r selfies today too. Snowball sends a nuzzle to Pierrot too . XO

    1. Thank you, glad you like are selfies. If those people aren’t going to keep her- I am ( shh! don’t tell my husband that).

  6. Always Loooove your selfies! Enjoh the vet…NOT! Let us know bout Joanie’s ear…Paprika has a something on her ear that wasn’t there before and we’re watching it. And thank you for the honor of including us in your challenge. Unfortunately we are held hostage by our owner who is trying to finish the Bloggers 2015 Rainbow Bridge slideshow before her cataract surgery Feb 3. We tried to sit on her lap and make her stop working on it so we could blog, we tried everything, even knocking over a canister of our food… but she was adamant. So if you want to pick someone else for your challenge we’ll understand, um purrrrfectly. Have a great day you guys.

    1. Your Mom is very busy, we understand that you can’t do the challenge. The slide show is such a sweet thing for her to do. Joanie had a mast sell tumor removed a little over a year ago on that side of her face so I want to make sure it isn’t another one. Your vet should test Paprika’s ear, it only takes a small amount of cells and they know in a few minutes.We are praying your Mom’s surgery goes well.

  7. I was so excited to see that you nominated me for the quote challenge! I will be starting my three days tomorrow.

    Phoebe, I bet you’re glad to have your bikini back in your own paws. It’s had a busy life, so I’m sure it will enjoy its retirement. Also, you all took such lovely selfies! Good luck at the vet, Phoebe and Joanie. And good luck to your mom with the feral kitties – the one you posted a picture of is absolutely gorgeous!

    1. Thank you for accepting the challenge- I look forward to your quotes. Phoebe is happy to have her bikini back, it has been gone since June or July. That feral is pretty, I hope she can adjust indoors.

  8. That is the most meowvolous quote. Mom loves seeing what everyone chooses on these challenges. She’s going to start posting tomorrow. All the selfies are wonderful this week, especially Sammy’s. We are sorry to see the bikini retire. It was fun to to see where it traveled and how each kitty wore it. Thanks for being a selfie hopper. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    1. I am looking forward to your quotes. Phoebe is thinking of a traveling hat for this summer. XO

    1. It looks like feedly hasn’t been delivering notifications again when you post for 2 or 3 days. I will have to make sure I read them and comment from the email notifications.

    1. Thank you and no pressure, if you don’t have time to take the challenge, we understand.

  11. That was a great set of selfies!

    Hope the vet trip is just ordinary…no nasty surprises, we will purr fur that, though you can sing kitty mews and yowls as much as you like to make your Mom pay fur taking you there, MOL!

    That feral kitty is evfur so purrty! Soon she will be a princess kitty somewhere…and if she is nearby we might even see her from time to time??

    A travelling hat sounds like fun!! Meowmy made us say that…

    1. I also hope the vet visit goes well. I hope someone can see the feral sometime. She is hiding under a bureau, she comes out to eat, but I haven’t seen her again. I took a photo under the bureau though.

  12. That is a beautiful quote and lovely selfies too. The stranger has made himself a lovely selfie too, no wonder he stole the heart of your mom, Phoebe. We hope everything is going to be fine with the bump. Good vibe Pawkisses are on the way 🙂 <3

  13. That feral cat is beautiful…we would be tempted to keep her too! Hope she stays inside and adjusts to the good life! That is cool that the bikini made it home in one piece (as it were! :p ). How long did it take to get back to you? We hope the vet visit goes smoothly and nothing too serious is going on!

    the critters in the cottage xo

    1. The bikini was gone since last June or July and stopped home briefly around Christmas before one last trip to Canada. It has traveled more than I ever have 🙂 I hope she will adjust to indoor life too, she is so scared, I wonder how she managed outdoors. XO

    1. Fluffy beat the crap out of Mom this morning when she tried to get her back in the trap. She was so scared and scratched Mom up, there was blood everywhere. She is all fixed now and back with the people who trapped her. They want to try to keep her as a pet. She is very sweet as long as you don’t try to grab her.
      We are praying your appointment goes well. XOXOXOX My calm sweet boy.
