A Special Sunday Celebration

Today is a special day. It is of course the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by our pals over at The Cat on My Head.

But that's not all. Today is also the day that Angel Sammy's new little brother Teddy is being welcomed to this family of bloggers. Onespoiledcat is now TWOspoiledcats, thanks to Teddy! This fantastic celebration for Teddy is being hosted by Dory's Backyard.

Like Angel Sammy, Teddy is a ginger boy. That's why Evan, of course an orange tabby himself, asked to be the one to snap some selfies and welcome Teddy today.

Teddy, Evan and all of us here welcome you! We know that you have found your way to wonderful home, with a fantastic forever family. We know that you will know lots of love and snuggles, Teddy, certainly with plenty of treats and toys and of course some good ol' whiffs of nip here and there.

And of course Evan also wishes you many sun puddles, Teddy! As your first bit of advice, Evan would like to suggest that you find the best window or door in the house, the one with the most sunshiney goodness, and claim it as your own. That's what Evan did, and he's been the king of sunshine ever since. Evan hopes you become the sunshine king at your home, too, Teddy!

Don't forget to visit our pals over at The Cat on My Head as well as Dory's Backyard, to join in on the selfie fun and to welcome Teddy yourself!

And now, for our last bit of business today, we'll share with you our drawing of the day. For yesterday's always fun artsy fartsy blog hop, we shared an illustration of Evan as none other than Supercat. Astrid, Thimble, and Eddy had all already shown off their heroic drawings earlier in the week. But we're not quite yet done with these heroic pieces. Why? Because of course Angel Rosie needs one! And so, I tried my best to do Rosie proud, and I doodled this up for my little angel heroine:

A terrific Sunday to one and all!

Our Tip of the Day:
Our tip today is simple. It is, as I'm sure most of you know, to always have patience when making any major changes that affect your furbaby. This could be anything from making home renovations, to moving, to bringing a new furbaby or other addition in to the family. Such things most certainly affect your furbabies, and one of the best ways to help them transition through such change is to simply give them time. Do not force them to explore new territory, such as a redecorated room or a new home, and nor should they be forced to meet a new member of the family right off the bat. Rather, have patience and try letting them do it on their terms. In many cases, when given sufficient time to explore and to get to know a new environment, a furbaby will come to accept and even come to enjoy their new circumstances. So, never forget that patience is a virtue!

Very nice selfies Evan and great sun puddle advice for Teddy. I think Angel Rosie would approve of that adorable drawing. Great tip, cats hate change so they need to go at their own pace checking things out.

I don't think I ever noticed this before, but it looks like Evan has a few freckles on his nose. So cute! A friend of mine has an orange cat and he has dark freckles on his nose.

Welcome to Teddy K, he's such a handsome boy!

What sweet photos. And I love your words about patience. You're right: It is something obvious. But it's oh-so easy to pass this tip right by. I know I did, when I was younger and new to cat guardianship. I like to think I've learned a lot about acceptance and patience since then. My cats taught me!
