Sunday Selfies-Meet Nellie

HI everyone! We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

I went to Build-A-Bear yesterday with my mom, niece and The Great One. She wanted an Anna Bear to go with the Elsa Bear I bought her last year so my mom got it for her for a Valentine’s gift. They had a special, buy one, get one for $10 so I asked my mom if she would get me a kitty.I had a lot of fun stuffing it πŸ™‚ I named her Nellie because she looks like Marv’s predecessor, Nellie.

I have always wanted to build a bear, well, a kitty. Now I can cross that off the bucket list. Now if I could only meet Nicolas Cage then my bucket list would be complete.

I was so proud carrying my box through the mall.
Sorry, no room in my bed for you.
There is not room for 2 up here.
You are invading my space.
I will be your friend.


  1. Awww, a Nellie!!

    And for petcretary its a Pipo!! MOL!
    Love how she had to hunt for a resting place, and Joanie has befrineded her:)

    It reminded us of ‘No Room In The Inn’…
    Now you can hug and kiss you furry own meezer kitty!
    Wait till the Great One see her!!

    And I wish I could scratch off items on my bucket list…

    Sorry I have been rather AWOL of late…now I have a million blogs to try and catch up with…try being the operative word, MOL!

    1. It does look like Pipo. Joanie is the sweetest of my kitties. I hope to have a real one someday. No worries, I know you are very busy and work full time. XO

  2. Hi Nellie! You sure are living in a super house now – I’m glad Miss Ellen “brought you to life” at Build-A-Bear so you can join the house full of kitties there. I’m glad you are making friends.

    Hugs, Teddy

  3. I’ve heard about ‘Build-a-Bear,’ but I didn’t know you could build a stuffed kitty there, too! I could always use another look-alike mute pal. Tee hee hee.

    1. That sounds like fun. My niece said she would probably do the same for her daughter when she is older ( she is 3 now).

  4. The pictures are very cute ! Arthur used to play with a monkey bigger then him ! (He was younger too) I didn’t take a picture of Kim, becausee it’s always the same, she sleeps in her bathroom and I think she eats only during night. But that is good as long as she eats !!

  5. Your kitty is so cute! I didn’t know you could make other animals in those stores. That does sound like fun!! I’m glad your new kitty finally found a friend. πŸ™‚

  6. That kitty is so cute! I like that it stands like a cat instead of some of the “teddy bear” style cats they’ve had in the past.

  7. Nellie is purrfectly adorable! For the longest time, I thought Build-A-Bear only allowed you to build, well, bears. Then I found out they offer kitties and more, and now I really need to find one to visit. Joanie, you are so sweet to let Nellie be your friend! Do she and Gremmie get along?

  8. Charlee: “Nellie sure is cute! Seems like she had a little bit of trouble finding a friend, though.”
    Chaplin: “I wouldn’t want to share my perches with a strange cat either.”
    Charlee: “But this is just a stuffed cat, Chaplin. Like one of Dennis’s old stuffies.”
    Chaplin: “Oh, well, that’s all right then.”
