Sunday Selfie AND World Cat Domination Day!

Standard

It’s a big day…..June 24 is Cat World Domination Day!  

This is a special day started by our friend Angel Sparkle to celebrate the wonderfulness of cats and the photo/badge above is Angel Sparkle’s sister Summer who took over being in charge of their blog when Sparkle went to the Bridge.   Summer does a great job posing doesn’t she?    If you click her badge you can go visit her and see what she’s posted about this BIG DAY in the kitty blog kingdom.   She’s having a BIG HUGE giveaway too – man oh man the prizes are fabulous!

It’s ALSO Sunday Selfies day with The Cat On My Head and we have a “double selfie” for you today at the end of our blog today.

Back to kitties though……………my Mom is a kitty person…………she grew up with dogs in the family as her Dad didn’t like cats so that was that.   The MINUTE Mom was on her own and had her own apartment you can guess what she got right?   A little ginger kitten she cleverly named “Pumpkin” (there must be a bazillion ginger pumpkin cats out there!).    She was not supposed to have pets and was found out – but Mom’s sister Carol took little Pumpkin and found him a home near where she lived.   Ever since then, Mom has had cats wherever she lived and no matter what else was going on in her life.    She had some gray tabbies along the way but she always had a soft spot for ginger tabbies.    WE ROCK…….that’s what Mom says anyway.

Here are just a few of Mom’s many cats of the past:

Ricky…..a sweet ginger boy who Mom had many years ago and bottom photo is his sister Linda Sue

Charli

Sweet Charli – a dear sweet girl who Mom adored…..

My Angel brother Sammy who started this blog with Mom!

So Mom is definitely a cat woman and she “converted” my Dad from a dog guy to a cat guy.    Now I have to say that even though we believe cats totally dominate (!), my parents BOTH love dogs as well.   In fact, they are animal people PERIOD.

We want to thank dear Angel Sparkle for starting World Cat Domination Day and thank dear Summer for carrying on the family tradition.   It’s great to have our VERY OWN DAY to celebrate all things wonderful about cats and why WE RULE!

Yep – it’s a fact – just ask Garfield…..he knows!

And last but not least…………here is my Sunday Selfie which we do EVERY SINGLE SUNDAY with our friends at Kitties Blue – THE CAT ON MY HEAD.    You should consider showing off your fine self in a selfie today since it’s such a BIG DAY in the world of cats but even if you’re NOT a cat, a selfie is in order.   Just click their badge below to join in the Sunday fun!

I thought because it’s a special day, I would use as my selfie, a photo of me and my Angel Brother Sammy……………..even though I didn’t get to meet him, I feel him in my heart every single day.    We will always be “together” and one day we will TRULY be together but before that, I have a whole lot of living to do!    He will be with me every step of the way!

Happy Sunday

Love, Teddy

  3. OMCs Teddy and Angel Sammy your mom picked out the most purrfect names for all the cats who came before you.
    Mom was raised with dogs too, Dad with just one cat John…but he was bigger than life and made a lasting impression. Thankfully mom was able to meet John shortly after she started dating dad.

    • Your Mom and my Mom met the dogs in their “soon to be husbands” lives! Mom met my Dad’s dog Andie about six months before Andie went to the Bridge. She was 16 years old and sweet as can be. She wasn’t too happy about sharing her Dad with another woman (!) but she did – we think she knew her Dad would need someone to be by his side when Andie left….and hopefully for the rest of his life.

      Love and Hugs, Teddy

  5. Hmmmmm…. The Secret Society of Squirrels wants to know who these cats think they are butting in on our own world domination plans. The Furless Leader (Yes, our leader is an old, balding squirrel… but he has a killer villain’s eyepatch) will not be pleased…

    • Oh my…..The Furless Leader sounds like he’s ready for “Talk Like A Pirate Squirrel Day” which will be celebrated on September 19th. Tell Mr. F. Leader to put that on his calendar!

  6. What fun to see some of Mom Pam’s other gingers. We know each one and all the other kitties were special and remain loved and in her heart. Mom got a puppy in college, and she wasn’t supposed to have pets where she lived. She just moved, and she still had that little dog when she and Dad moved into their current house. She was very old when she passed away. Make sure to get lots of outside time today. Remember you are in charge! Thanks for being our friend and a faithful hopper.

    • Well, we had a peek or two of sunshine today but mostly clouds and MORE RAIN. We are getting mildewed and mossy and SICK of being WET. We are trying to smile though in spite of that – and I did get a couple of walks in before it got TOOOOOOOOOOO wet. Hope you all had a great Domination Day – just another reminder that WE RULE right???!!

      Hugs, Teddy

  8. It is so nice to see the befores in your World Domination post! Especially yours and Sammy’s matching poses! Our household is an “Animal” household too! Mom has had a cat for her entire life! Her pawrents had a cat when she was born and “Grey Cat” was Mom’s constant companion. Her Mom always knew where my Mom was by whose doorstep Grey Cat was sitting on! Right now Kozmo and I are trying to determine who is the dominant cat in our mixed household. He and I are not warring but we are talking quite loudly at each other when we want to be in the same place at the same time (like Mom’s lap)!

    • Oh Marv I bet it’s tough when someone else wants Mom’s lap – I know you feel it’s ALL YOURS……..but it’s also nice to share Mom’s lap with your visiting brother Kozmo because, after all, he had that lap before you came along. It just goes to show your Mom’s lap is a GREAT SPOT. When your company leaves that lap will be ALL YOURS!!!!! Happy World Cat Domination Day….

    • David and I were talking today about how DIFFERENT Sammy and Teddy are from each other but then we got Sammy when he was tiny and Teddy was almost one year old and had “his ways” when he came to us. Sammy learned everything with us. I love that photo of the two boys together – I did it shortly after we adopted Teddy.

      Hope you have had a GREAT Sunday!
      Hugs, Pam

    • Well thank you for that “gingery” compliment! We think all kitties are super special in their own way. We have a huge capacity to understand our humans and give them the companionship and comfort they need to get through their complicated lives. WE ARE PAWSOME! Thanks for visiting me Valentine.
