Sunday Selfies: Lady Cats

For today's Sunday Selfie blog hop, hosted by the always pawesome The Cat on My Head, my lady cats were the most willing participants. Well, sort of.

My girl Thimble went for a look of shock and awe:
My girl Eddy, well, she tried so hard to sit still. How'd that go? Not so great.
She did make a second attempt, though, which showed some improvement:.

Two other lady cats in my life are my parents' lovely calico and tortie girls, Gemma nd Freya. Although they certainly aren't all that keen on having their pictures taken, they still get to participate in today's post in the form of my last piece of Valentine art. Because of the saying I chose to use, this Valentine is, I'll admit, as much for us cat-loving humans as it is for the little lady cats starring in it.

Happy Valentine's Day and lots of love to all of our furiends and friends!

Our Tip of the Day:
Although some cats and dogs may not care or show any concern for such things, always keep in mind the heightened sense of smell that our furbabies possess. Everything smells far more potent to them than it does to us. Keeping that in mind, be careful what all fragranced items you choose to use, as our furbabies may not appreciate having to smell a fragrance just because we do. For example, take into consideration the scent of laundry detergent you use to wash their bedding, and consider the potential effects of choosing litter with a fragrance (many cats do not like fragranced litter - this sort of thing is on the market more for us humans than for the animals' sake), Also, you may even want to be aware of what perfume or cologne you wear, as even some such scents can ward our furbabies away from us.

  1. Beautiful card of your parents' kitties. And great selfies. I love your tip today- I hate scented litter, it bothers me and I know cats can smell is more strongly. Happy Valentine's Day to all of you with love. XO

  2. That is a great card with Gemma and Freya. Tortie and Calicoes are some of our favorites. And that is such a great hint. Cats do have such a good sense of smell. A very Happy Valentine's day to all of you.

  7. Happy Valentine's Day! I think Eddy did quite well. Rosie especially likes the one fang picture - because she herself only has one front fang. Hope you all have a wonderful day!

  15. Aww, such sweet selfies! Thank you for the Tip of the Day. I never really thought too much about the perfume I wear. My boys don't seem to care about it one way or the other, but now I'm wondering if they have ever disliked any of them.

  16. The photos today are meowvolous. Please do not tell Eddy that our Mom laughed and laughed over her first photo. The facial expressions in all three photos are priceless. And we always enjoy your art. Hope you had a terrific Valentine's Day. Thanks so much for joining our blog hop.
