Not Looking At The Camera Selfies


 We are not looking at the camera nicely today...nope we're not:)
Not today, we didn't want to cooperate much..we said we were just going to be askance with the selfies this week...BOL/MOL!


Minko is like a yo-yo...one day he will cooperate with the feed assist, and then the next he decides to spit it all out as fast as it goes in...what a mess. Not sure what the issue is...might be needing a visit to *that place* if it keeps up this way, some feedings are now taking 30 - 45 minutes whereas before it could be done in 10 - 15. Nothing else has changed, other than the season, MOL!

We got our prize package from Basil...all the way from England, OMC!! Thanks Basil, we will do a post about it soon...we hope!
And of course we are on the list to get Billy the Time-Cat's scarf here too. Hmmm, better be a lot of good bright days...

Petcretary has a busy week ahead, so we are sure she is going to get all behind once again, Sheesh!





We also were a bit late in getting to Rumpy's Gotcha Day pawrty...but we helped the petcretary make a card for him:

A Patriot's Day Selfie Sunday Of Remembering

We are here today, doing our Sunday Selfies. But it is a memorable Sunday as well.
It is Patriot's Day; and it is the 15th year of remembering about those horrid events of '9-11'. May such a thing not be forgotten ever. And we pray it will not happen again; we pray for peace to reign, the eternal peace  of love and goodwill. May God change  hearts from evil and render them to loving instead of wanton hate.

Anyways, we have some older patriotic images of us in our archives which will do for our patriotic efforts today...




And here are our 'regular' happy Sunday Selfies:



Minko must have heard all the purrs on his behalf, he is mostly back to his so called ordinary ways again...that is to say he is once again eating the food that the petcretary puts in his mouth. No more gagging and not nearly as much spitting out. The petcretary made some medication adjustments which may have helped. At least he isn't hiding anymore, this means he feels better:)
Thanks for all those purrs and pawyers!

Unfurbro-the-Younger is car shopping now, the insurance peeps deemed his car a total loss as the $$ to repair it would have been more than the vehicle was worth...sigh...just because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. We are still more than glad he was OK, though, that is way more important than his car.

MrJackFreckles and Pipo are just fine!! Phew!
We have joined with The Cat On My Head, who are the hosts of this blog hop.

Laboring Late With Our Sunday Selfies

Yes its already Wednesday in some parts of the world,and here we are, trying to sneak in the back door of the Sunday Selfies.  The petcretary was laboring all the three days of the long weekend. So there is our excuse:) She came home each night utterly exhausted. Nurses aides do a lot of heavy work.

Anyways not only did she work at her job, Minko decided it might be a good time to not let her feed him...he spat out or gagged on  almost all and threw up again too. Yuck. Why do our furchildren always do these things on long weekends?? Well, she continued her efforts, upped the prednisolone and he seems to be gradually improving back to his won't eat unless she puts the noms in my mouth...which is OK, because at least that way he does eat.

Labor Day weekend almost always has the petcretary thinking a lot...Sept 5th was the anniversary day of her pawrents...it would have been 66 this year. While she was at work on Sunday the fourth, there was a couple who live in that facility who celebrated their 70th! Wow!!
Its also the same day of her niece's birthday! That young lady just started college! On a hockey scholarship..she will be the goalie for the University of British Columbia's Ladies Hockey Team. They are the Thunderbirds.

And if that wasn't enough, today on his way home from work, unfurbro-the-younger called pawppy up to tell him that he had been in a wreck. Oh no. His car is a mess, but thankfully other than his pride, unfurbro-the-younger is fine. Praise the Lord for His care and mercy. We don't know if he will need a new car or can get his fixed. At least there is a rental provision in his insurance.

Always something:(

So here are the better late than nevfur selfies:

Sharing Our Angel Furblings And Selfies, Too

Today is Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. That is to say we are remembering all of our angel furblings, no matter when they graduated to the Heavenly realms.

So we are also featuring them as selfies. All four of them.
We also send our hugs and purrs and licks to all those furmilies who are sad as they remember their angel furs too. We know there are many who have recently had losses, though this does not mean that the ones who became angel long ago are any less remembered. We nevfur furget any of them and they all live on in our hearts, to be cherished, treasured and loved forevfur.


This is Simba. Second kitty in this furmily, but the furst to become an angel...

Simba
This is Toki. He was such a clown. He adopted dog-guy as his own, MOL!He was the fourth kitty to join our clan...and the second to become an angel.

Toki
We had our own Groucho featured on Aug 26th, as that was his RB Day specifically. Furst kitty in this clan of six,and the furst kitty evfur fur the petcretary. Pawppy had 3 kitties before he met her...

Groucho
And then...well, then there was Suki. A one of kind princess-diva, MOL! She thought she was the only kitty to matter, PMC! And she had a smacky paw fur kittens and pups alike,  tee-hee. She knew Groucho too, and met dog-guy, but was not at all impressed with that pup. She tried to boss Toki to no avail, and later she had nothing but hisses for Pipo & Minko. In fact she even shunned the petcretary for a while after those two young-uns came into our den, MOL!

Suki
Groucho, Suki and Toki ~ The only image of these three together. They were watching the neighbor's kitty, also a meezer called Breeze...he liked to roam and ours were jealous, MOL!
Well, there you have our angels, thanks for stopping by today. We send purr, licks and hugs to all furmilies with precious angels to remember and treasure.



Now here we are, at least the kitty contingent:
Trying to get a good double selfie is hard...Pipo tries to do some last second grooming...
Here, Pipo, let me wash that for you...
That's the best we are going to do today, MOL!
(The pinkish tinge is the reflection off the petcretary's three flags which all have a lot of red in them, esp the Canadian Flag, MOL!)

MrJackFreckles spent some time outside, the weather was mostly nice after a lot of heavy rain this week...seems like we either have too much of that commodity or not enough!
He also is the official Dirty Duds Digger in the Smoke & Joe Campaign, 2016, here is his badge:


I am offurcial in my tie! (Thanks Nellie)
He digs up any dirty laundry of candidates, to make sure it all stays good and clean, BOL! Howevfur he is sure that Smoke & Joe will not have much dirty duds to expose...they are too sweet fur that kind of thing:)

                                                                           ~~~~

We hope you all have a great week! Next Sunday is the middle of Labor Day Weekend...the last weekend that marks the end of 'summertime' vacation. Wow, this summer went by so fast! The petcretary not only has to work that weekend as her regular schedule, but she has to work the holiday, too as it is 'her turn'. Oh well, it means some extra $$ so maybe she will buy us some good stuff, BOL/MOL!

We are remembering and hopping along with The Cat On My Head who host this weekly feature.

Groucho's RB Day

This is the day we remember that the petcretary's furst ever kitty graduated to the heavenly realms and became a sweet angel kitty.
Groucho came to our furmily as an adult, he was given up by his furst furmily who had to let him go due to the many health concerns of newborn twins who were coming home on respirators...poor dude, he was so scared of us for several days before eventually warming up. He was also the big loving brother of three other (also now angel) kittens, when they came to live with us and he outlived two of them....(Simba and Toki; only Suki lived after he left us.)






Tundra from Catster and her furmily made this beautiful memento for the petcretary. Thanks so much!

Sunday Selfies Sunshine On A Stormy Day

It was quite stormy here yesterday, buckets of rain and thunderstorms and even tornadoes north of here. Scary. We are all fine, and unscathed, but north of here there is lots of damage and power outages.
We hope and pawray thay all our furends are OK after all this unsettled weather, storms and floods and tornadoes, and now even a tropical storm. Yikes:(
Before the rain started, the petcretary managed to find some time to help us make selfies.

Sorry we have been still  a bit MIA for most of you,we are trying to catch up in bits and pieces as it were...
And we won't be here too much tomorrow either, unfurbro-the-younger celebrated two dozen years, and we are going to his place to celebrate with him, well, the peeps are while we manage the household for them, OMC/OMD!!

So here are those selfies:
