A Guest Sunday Selfie

Today's selfie stars a guest. Our guest is a kitty, but it's one of my parents' kitties. This kitty asked me to help her snap a selfie while I was at my parents' house the other day. We've introduced this little lady before. She's extremely fluffy, she loves to help with laundry, and her name is Gilly.


Gilly ended up feeling a bit shy when I snapped the shot, so she looked away from the camera. I wish she had shown you all her face, because it's quite adorable. This little calico is quite the daddy's girl, in case you were wondering. She has my dad wrapped around her fuzzy little paw.

Fluffy Gilly's photo is our entry to the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, hosted by none other than the Kitties Blue over at The Cat on My Head.


Purrs and well wishes to all!

Doodle of the Day

Today we're in a springtime sunroom.


We had us some glorious open windows the other day. Not this weekend, though, because we're back to freezing temperatures. Spring will eventually show back up again.

Tip of the Day

Today's National Pet Poison Awareness Month tip is yet another one regarding random yet potentially toxic items that might be found in the the home. Today's household item to be aware of is matches. Matches can contain potentially toxic substances, such as potassium nitrate. It is also possible for matches to contain heavy metals or other dangerous components. Ingestion of matches can lead to toxicity for your furbaby, with the effects depending on the quantity ingested. Poisoning from the ingestion of matches can result in symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea. Consuming items such as matches can also lead to a variety of other problems, such as perforation or obstruction of the bowels. Needless to say, to prevent any such issues, of course keep matches and all dangerous items well out of reach of your kitty or pup.

In this same line of thought, also keep items such as lighters and lighter fluids hidden away. These can also contain components that are potentially toxic to kitties and pups. And what do we always say? It's better to be safe than sorry!

Awww! What a sweetie, and who would not love her wrapped up snug as a bug in the laundry? OK Mrs H wouldn't be too impressed, but she has to do the laundry and ironing, so she doesn't count, MOL

Oh Gilly is a pretty girl and I can't blame her for not wanting a camera in her face.....she looks quite comfy though. You can rest now Gilly - the camera is GONE.

Hugs, Teddy

Gilly is camera shy. But she's so purrty! Dori is camera shy too. Or maybe she's just a tease, always looking away so it takes our pawpawrazzi extra time to get the right shot. If making silly sounds doesn't lift Gilly's head for future meowdeling sessions, try shaking a toy over the camera to get her attention. Works for Dori!
