Guest Sunday Selfies: The Sequel

A couple weeks ago, we shared some guest Sunday selfies. The guest was my parents' adorable orange mancat Foggy. The aforementioned previous selfies were taken through my parents' front window, when Foggy was bidding me farewell after one of my visits. He very often greets me or says goodbye to me through that window. Yesterday, Foggy decided he wanted a sequel of that very same photo shoot, this time when I was mowing my parents' yard. I of course got purrfectly distracted and stopped in the middle of mowing to help Foggy snap selfies like this one here:


These selfies are nothing grand on my part, as they were snapped on my phone, through a window glaring with sunlight. I don't think that matters, though, because Foggy looks downright adorable no matter what.


I especially love when Foggy rubs his face in the interior of the window while I'm standing on the other side. I finally got a shot of him doing just that, and so we have this:


You know what makes Foggy's selfies today even more special? Today is his third Gotcha Day! As I mentioned in our last post starring Foggy, I found a crying 5-month-old Foggy outside my parents' house on October 13, 2016. My dad fell in love with him, as did my mom, and when no one responded to notices that he was found, Foggy officially joined my parents' clowder. He is a total daddy's boy, and a total sweetheart.

Foggy hopes you enjoyed his selfies! Happy Sunday, friends!

Halloween Doodle of the Day

We're continuing our series of doodles starring a witch and her cats. Today, they're putting up their Halloween decor. The witch is of course getting plenty of help from some furry someones.


This is another one of my doodles that gives away the fact that I don't use rulers. The room is tilting, but I'll just pretend the witch and her cats don't care.

Halloween Tip of the Day

We've made it to day 13 of our 31 Halloween tips. Today's tip is likely the last in our discussion on pumpkins, and it's also more than likely an obvious one. Nevertheless, we're here to remind you to take precautions and to keep your furbaby safe if you get festive by carving a jack-o'-lantern. Carving a pumpkin means pulling out knives or other sharp objects, which can of course be a danger to your kitty or pup. Do not leave any knives sitting where your furbaby might walk or jump, and certainly don't leave knives unattended. If need be, activities such as pumpkin carving can be, and perhaps should be, done in an area where your furbaby does not have access. This would allow for the prevention of any accidents. Also think about after you've carved the pumpkin, and do not leave the knives sitting dangerously in the sink or elsewhere. We've also already discussed safety around candles in jack-o'-lanterns, as flames are of course another danger. All in all, if you are carving pumpkins or partaking in other similar Halloween festivities, always be aware of your furbaby's proximity and safety.

I don't care WHAT you used to take the pictures!! Foggy is simply the most adorable cat and you can see his sweet nature in that gorgeous face of his. He landed on his paws with your Mom and Dad that's for sure.

Happy Sunday Selfie Foggy!

Awww, there is nothing foggy about his pictures, and he is 100% a lovebug, for sure. Maybe he was admiring and showing appreciation of your handiwork with a mower :)

Foggy is a most handsome gingery boy indeed! He appears to be a BIG boy like me too - let's hear it for giant-sized gingers....tee hee. I know he's very happy that you introduced him to your parents and he moved right in. Happy GOTCHA Day Foggy.
