Sunday Selfie

Today, we want to honor Mauricio of The Cat on My Head. He gained his angel wings on July 17.

Our thoughts, prayers, purrs, and woofs are with Mauricio's mom and dad, as well as with his kitty siblings, the Kitties Blue. Along with the rest of the Kitties Blue, Mauricio has always been a courteous host of The Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfies Blog Hop.

To honor handsome tuxie Mauricio, our resident tuxie Toby is sharing a selfie today.

Toby and all of us here hope Mauricio and his entire family know that he will never be forgotten. Fly high and run free, sweet Mauricio.

One other note we'd like to make is that Toby's photo above is the first in our week of Christmas in July posts. This here human has some favorite Christmas decorations that quite honestly stay up year round, and for this Christmas in July week of posts, the furbabies will be posing with those year round pieces of festive decor. In Toby's selfie above, he's posing with a red Christmas truck (lower left corner of the photo) and a Santa sloth cat toy (upper right corner) that was stolen from the kitties and unfairly kept out of their reach.

Many blessings to all on this Sunday!

Flashback Doodle of the Day

Our first flashback doodle for this week of Christmas in July comes from 2018. 

Did you know?

Have you ever heard of a reverse tuxedo cat? It's pretty much what it sounds likes. A classic tuxedo cat, as you all certainly know, has a black back with white on their chest and abdomen as well as sometimes on their face and legs. A reverse tuxedo cat is more so white on their back with black on their sides, abdomen, and/or legs. Classic tuxie cats are somewhat common, whereas reverse tuxedo cats are far more rare. Have you ever shared your life with or met a reverse tuxedo cat?

We are really sad about Mau. Toby's selfie is a nice tribute to him.

What a beautiful tribute to sweet Mau. That is a beautiful selfie as well. I have a white cat with black areas, but not tuxie like - I don't think I've ever seen a reverse tuxie.

We have had a few tuxies, and have one now, but i have only seen a reverse or two at the shelter.

Love the doodle, and i am very sad for all who knew and loved Mauricio. May his memory bring them comfort.

Love the Christmas in July idea and yes, we have a few Christmas cards we love that stay up all year round because we love them!

Toby is a cutie. I like the drawing too- big fan of Christmas any time of year. I have never seen a reverse tuxedo.

Great selfie Toby. We've only had one black and white cat, but he wasn't really a tuxie.
