Selfie Sunday

  “Watcha doing Phoebe ? ”

( Phoebe) Getting ready to wear the Queen Esther costume for Purim. You have to be special to wear it.

(Joanie) I iz special.

(Phoebe) Yes, you are special. You can wear it.

    Happy Purim to all our Jewish friends. If you want to learn about Purim, there is a great website called My Jewish Learning that has 9 facts about Purim. One fact is that Queen Esther was a vegetarian.

Did you see what I did there? I tricked Joanie into wearing the outfit. I am having a St. Patrick’s Day giveaway. Mom is going to make a catnip mat with this fabric. Just comment on today’s post to be entered in the giveaway. I will announce the winner on Tuesday.

I got to see my Grammie on Saturday. I love her so very much!

We are joining The Cat On My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

  3. Joanie makes a beautiful Queen Esther.
    Phoebe, concats on getting out of it (mol).
    We are going to have to be on Our Guard today and tomorrow. We saw Mummy getting the Purim hats out of hiding (She has to keep them out of the reach of Shimshi’s sharp little teeth and claws).
    Happy Purim to effurryone.

    1. Joanie thanks you. We hope we get to see you in your Purim hats. Happy Purim!

  4. Although I think Joanie looks nice in the outfit … of course tricking her sounds a lot more fun tee hee tee hee … Interesting facts on Queen Esther … I never heard of Purim… when I think of Queen Esther I start singing Veggie Tales songs…. sigh…

  5. Oh Joanie! You look fabulous as Queen Esther! I love your crown too. Phoebe, you must be an older sisfur because you sure do know how to tap to Joanie. Brian is right. Your Mighty Fine is definitely showing. XXXOOO

  6. I don’t have any kitties here so don’t enter me. I guess I do know a lot of kitties though, but still.

    I’m glad you got to see your Grammie. I know you love her very much.

    Have a purrfect day. My best to your wonderful mom. ☺

  7. We love Joanie as Queen Esther. Gorgeous crown! We like veggies too! Glad Grammie got to visit and came thru with treats (hopefully, that is).
    Have a great weekend!

  8. Wow, Phoebe, a move worthy of a TUX. Not that I would dream of doing anything like that, being a Princess and all!
    Having said that it isn’t good to shirk ones duties, and that costume does look rather fetching on Joanie!
    Happy Purim everyone!

    1. Thank you. I wore it last year so I thought someone else should wear it this year. 🙂

  9. Phoebe, we bet you let Joanie wear the Purim outfit because you are a kind kitty 😉

That’s a very nice Queen Esther costume . . . though I think maybe the winner is the kitty who *doesn’t* have to wear the costume, ha ha ha meow! I am not big on wearing clothes! That nice catnip mat ooks pretty cool though! The Human said I should tell you I was playing HARD last night with one of my special balls. I LOVES it! XOXOXO

  12. I am impressed that you could get her to wear a robe and a crown! Your fabric is very pretty.

    1. You got that right, Joanie is not a vegetarian 🙂 Glad you like the fabric.

  13. I loved learning about Purim! My little nephew is of Jewish heritage (on his dad’s side), and I’ve been trying to learn more about it. On his mom’s side, well. We’re all Irish here. So your post is perfect for me today!
