Sunday Selfies and Space Stations

Today is none other than Sunday, which means we're happily participating in the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by our Kitties Blue pals over at The Cat on My Head.


And you'll never guess which furbaby here snapped our selfies for this week. Can you guess? Can you? It's this girl!


That's right, Eddy not only sat still, but agreed to take some selfies!


This momma here loves that snaggletooth. Eddy came to me as a special needs kitty with facial nerve paralysis and a head tilt. Those both still remain, and her facial nerve paralysis gives Eddy a permanent smirk, and I happen to think it looks downright adorable on her.


We'll have to savor these, because you never know when Eddy will again agree to sit still and snap some selfies. She's a busy girl, after all.

We can't wait to see what all selfies our furiends snapped this week!

Oh, and Eddy also wanted to show off how much she enjoys her Jackson Galaxy Space Station, which we won from none other than the Kitties Blue, the hosts of the Sunday Selfie blog hop.


Eddy usually has Space Station fun with far more zeal than that, but she decided to be a bit camera shy. Though she didn't show this in her shy little video, Eddy also loves to get in the Space Station and slap that ball around from in there. She'll play like that for hours, it seems, and at any time of the day and night. The other day I woke up at 2 o'clock in the morning to her playing with her Space Station. Eddy sure loves her Space Station, and so do the other kitties, too! Thank you, Kitties Blue!

Happy Sunday, everybuddy!

Our Tip of the Day:
Don't forget the importance of acclimating furbabies to various sights, sounds, and experiences starting at as early of an age as possible. The most impressionable age of a furbaby is during their youth, typically especially in their first few weeks of life. For this reason, when possible, during their first few weeks start getting them used to various sights and sounds that could be considered frightful in a less socialized furbaby. For example, get them used to the sounds of plastic bags and even household noise-makers such as blenders and vacuum cleaners. Also get them used to potentially scary sights, such as umbrellas opening. And, of course, also get your young furbabies in the habit of having their nails trimmed, their teeth brushed, and other such experiences. When it's possible to acclimate a young furbaby to these such things, they are less likely to be a sittish kitty afraid of such things.

  2. Aww, great to see Eddy, and enjoying the space station too. 2am is a regular play time in this palace, though peep seldom seems that amused .... or playful!

  8. Eddy is adorable, how nice of her to do selfies that are not a blur :) Cute video, she is good at whacking that ball. Nice drawing too and as always, excellent tips. Unfortunately, all my cats come to me as adults so it is hard to get them used to things.

  10. Isn't it brilliant that the prize went to someone who absolutely adores it. I remember reading about Eddy once before, I think and I loved her then too!

    Happy Sunday Selfie!
