Selfies On Sunday

Here we are on a Sunday once again.
Petcretary decided to recycle some older pictures, and then she even found one not evfur seen by anyone or anyfur befur!! Woweee!
Pipo! What a big raspberry!! MOL!

MrJackFreckles, Happy as can be!!

On a more  serious note, we are still pawyering hard for MrMan, aka Cameron, aka Grandpa, from Lone Star Cats and Kinley Westie. He had to go back into the ICU from sudden complications but he is slowly improving now. All the POTP and pawyers really do help, and the love in Blogville is wonderful to support and encourage those in their time of need.

Also this Blogville love and support is especially needed now for Miss Sharon from Friends Furever, aka The Florida Furkids. We have all been praying so hard for their beloved Daddy, Mr Bill, but God called him unto Himself this past Thursday, Sept 15th. So we and all of Blogville, mourn with them, and send them our sympathy and condolences, and of course our huge enfolding loving hugs, by way of the virtual pathways to their hearts.
This Blog hop is also dedicated to the memory of Mr Bill and his grieving family.
We also had to say goodby to Benson. This kitty was known to most of us former Catster members.
 He was at Catster Buddies, and this is his Mom's Facebook link. 
We made her a memento picture for Benson:

We are hopping with the Kitties Blue who are our weekly hosts.

A Neighborly Guest Selfie

Yup, today we are not the feature, but the kitty that lives next door will be our guest. She is an indoor/outdoor kitty, and while petcretary has asked a few times, she cannot remember nor pronounce the name they gave Neighbor Kitty it will be, MOL!
She is furry furendly and comes right up to petcretary, and even to dog-guy. She head butts on him through the fence, then she hisses and whaps him if he sticks his schnooter too far through the fence to have a sniff, MOL!
HEY! Who goes there??

I see a kitty!

I have a kitty by the fence, she smells like a kitty!

Wow, she is furendly!

Kitty interrupts her headbonks to say hello-mews to petcretary...

And Kitty has her paw at the ready to whap me...yikes!

Won't you stay and play, kitty?? See my tail; its wagging!


Hello Mrs Neighbor!

I see that dog-guy running in his yard.

Thinking and watching...

Ooh, gotta scratch that itch...petcretary hopes its not fleas...sigh...

Playing shy...

This stepping stone is just right fur my paws.

A stretch and a scratch...

Gotta sharpen my weapons...

This is my ho-hum selfie since I was bored with all that outside stuff, MOL!
 MrJackFreckles is doing fairly well with his eating habits. He is eating freeze dried lamb or Chicken or freeze dried raw covered kibbles. And a few nibbles of a puppy food that he likes. Also some refrigerated foods that petcretary slices to get the needed amount. Kind of like sausage, BOL!The good thing is he *IS* eating, hooray!

We helped petcretary make some cards this past week:
This was for Yin and Yang's Gotcha day.
Parsley had a recent Birthday.
Phenny dogabrated  ONE!!
And Einstein is four!!
We continue to purr and pray for all our furry friends in the path of Irma, and all those affected by that storm and Harvey s well.Pray that Jose stays out to sea...
And all those near fires and earthquakes...sheesh, the earth is in some kind of crisis mode of late.
We are hopping in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, so graciously hosted weekly by The Kitties Blue.

Holiday Lazy Time Selfies

This is the Labor Day Holiday weekend.
Hence we can be lazy, despite the fact that its *Labor* day, MOL! And while we here can relax, Petcretary has to work, its her turn...
So we are going to do a flashback as to what were we doing here a year ago, Sept 2, 2016.

Please if you could spare the time, take moment to visit  Lone Star Cats and Kinley Westie.
Their Grandpa is very ill, and they are sad and worried sick. They all truly need our support right now. We know they covet our thoughts and prayers right now.

Here are our flashback selfies from Sept 2, 2016. Almost exactly one year ago!

It was nice to see our Minko again. Who knew then,  that at this time he would be an angel kitty?

MrJackFreckles is feeling quite a bit better seemingly. He is perkier, and eating better...not at 100% yet, but still its going the right way. Thanks for all your POTP and encouraging thoughts on his behalf. The vet was consulted and he agreed, it was a good thing to take off that collar and see if there would be improvement. Apparently the Advantage11 he had used a wile back, also gave him a skin reaction, though not any type of reaction like the Seresto collar was doing. But...the medicine in the collar and those drops is about the same..and made by the same company. OK, Nothing from there for MJF anymore! He had a bath to wash off all that product, too. Nope he did not care for that...BOL!

We are laboriously being lazy with hopping along with The Cat On My Head who are the hosts of this Sunday Selfie Blog-Hop

Thank You Barb and Sunday Selfies

Oh, My goodness.
Barb, Mom to Marvelous and Angel Nellie, is a talented lady for sure.
She sent us a pair of beautiful paintings of our dear Angel Minko.
All we can say is "Thank You; Thank You; Thank You!"
We had them framed, and petcretary took them outside to take pictures of them so show all of you, our wonderful pals.

Here are some closeups of these lovely paintings:
Thanks so much, Miss Barb!

 Pipo allowed himself to be photographed too, and mewed it would be OK to do a selfie...but only if petcretary used the zoom lens...hence the soft focused look and the less than ideal colors. Maybe some day he will let the camera come closer...

It took a bit, but here finally I am looking! Do you think wearing this collar makes me

 MrJackFreckles still is in 'picky eater mode' He gets a lickable vitamin supplement...and he does eat a mouthful of this food or a few bits of that food...the lady in the pet shop suggested some other temptations too. We even have a bag of puppy noms here, since the nutritive density in that kind of food is higher.
He lies around an awful lot, and shakes all over esp the hind legs. He tries to rub his face on evfurrything the past few days...cannot see anything there, though.

Petcretary noted to herself that after the springtime when he got ill from the bird droppings, (We think), she applied the Sersesto Collar. You can see it in a lot of pictures since then...and ha, it is not too handsome...anypaws today at dinner time she had a bright moment and checked online for reviews of that product. Many peeps are reporting side effects including itching/scratching skin, (His face in this case started a s few days ago.), lethargy, shaking, unsteady gait, loss of good ability to use the hind legs, nausea, vomiting, and no appetite. Sound like MJF?? You bet. So off with that collar and we shall see if he improves over the next few days. We certainly hope so.

Anyone have any other suggestions as to good flea/tick control? He takes Heartguard for those nasty heartworms, cannot use Advantage ll as it gives him a bad skin reaction...and he previously was on Frontline plus...though now it is reported to not work around these parts anymore due to flea resistance...which is why we tried that Seresto collar in the first place.

Well, after all that, its time to show his selfies for this week...
Just standing around watching for anything interesting...

Which is boring...

Maybe I will smile for a treat:)

But here is a raspberry for that camera!


Maybe another grin?

For sure!

And again!

This is my selfie, smiles and good ears...

We are not stinky, but we are hopping along with The Kitties Blue, who are the hosts of this blog-hop.

Tomorrow is Rainbow Bridge Remembrance it was ap-purr-paw-iate that we were able to post these paintings of our dear Angel Minko. We also give mention to our other angels of this furmily: Groucho, Simba, Suki and Toki. Petcretary has to work tomorrow so we will not be able to post anything then...

See you all next time!!
