Sideways Sunday Selfie

Tonks told me that she doesn't get to star in our weekly selfies often enough. So, she is our selfie star today. The only problem is that this calico forgot to sit upright for her selfie, and so you have a sideways Tonks to enjoy today.

We didn't think you all would mind a sideways selfie, especially not from a calico cutie like this. Oh, and can you see the tiny little freckles on the bottom of Tonks' nose? I'm curious how many freckles Tonks will acquire over time. So far she just has those couple of tiny ones, and I plan on keeping tally of her freckles as she ages. I try to do the same for my orange boy Evan.

Happy Sunday, friends!

Flashback Doodle of the Day

As I mentioned a couple times this past week, we're going to share more flashback doodles than usual over the next week or two, simply because I recently developed carpal/cubital tunnel syndrome and need to rest my wrist and hand for just a bit. The rest and brace I wear are already helping, so we'll be back to our usual doodle schedule soon enough. Anyway, how about we continue on with sharing the flashback homey doodles I scribbled up roughly this time last year? Today we'll visit the bathroom in the quaint and quirky little home I drew last year, because why not?


Did you know?

How about some freckle trivia today? Did you know that, in both humans and cats, a freckle is also called a lentigo? And did you know that the plural form of lentigo is lentigines? Did you know that when it comes to cats, freckles are most commonly seen in orange cats? Freckles can also occur in any other cat with genes for orange fur, including calicoes, tortoiseshells, and even flame point cats. These freckles can be black or a variety of shades of brown. They can especially appear on the nose, lips, and eyelids, and they can grow in number as the cat ages. Generally, these freckles are completely harmless, but of course discuss them with a veterinarian if you see any abnormal changes in the color or texture of your cat's freckles.

A mighty fine sideways selfie! Freckles are so adorable on cats (although I never liked my own freckles!). Angel Sammy had a lovely freckled nose and had a few on his paw pads too. Teddy doesn't even have ONE. Maybe as he ages......Happy Sunday!

Hugs, Pam

What a great selfie, Tonks! And yes, we do love those freckles on your cute little nose. :)

Sideways and up or down suits us fine. I just worry about the staff getting a crick in the neck trying to get the angle, MOL
Have a lovely week to match your gorgeous freckles and selfie.

It seems perfectly correct that Tonks needs to do her selfies her way. said...

Hi Tonks! Our pup, Amy, has freckles on her nose. It's very cute. :)
