Father’s Day Selfies

Standard

My Dad

Happy Sunday!    It’s Selfie Sunday but it’s also Father’s Day so here we go.

First up is a reminder to visit our HOST – Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head if you’d like to join in the Sunday Selfies………just link up and you’re in with the in-crowd!    Click their badge below:

My Mom and Dad are my world.    My Dad had never ever had a kitty before Mom got him interested in cats.     When Mom and Dad got married they lived in Springfield, VA and Mom had a kitty friend – a sweet “neighborhood cat”  who had been left behind by his family and made his way in life by visiting friendly homes.     Mom fed him and he even got used to coming in the house – then sleeping in the house – and soon he was totally moved in.     His name was Eddy and he was the kitty Mom and Dad had when they built this house and moved out to the country.    Eddy went to the Rainbow Bridge and that’s when Mom and Dad adopted Sammy from the local shelter.     When he went to the Bridge in 2016, they went back to the shelter and found ME ME ME ME!

Mom and I have a special relationship BUT Dad and I have a whole totally different special relationship too.   Like most kitties, I know to go to Mom for some things and know to go to Dad for other things – we learn that stuff pretty quick!     Dad and I are walking pals.

   He’s the best walker – very patient and never in a hurry!

Mom and I are snuggle pals.   I love to hug her legs and give her head bonks.    I like it when she’s sitting down so I can come up beside her and put my paws up on top of her head and hug her face with my face.    She is the one who feeds me most of the time, gives me treats and cleans my litterbox (very imporant duty!).

But today really is about my Dad………………………………..I am happy that while he was a dog guy when Mom met him, he warmed up to the idea of having a cat – which Mom had always had since she moved out on her own from home.    I love and appreciate him.    I gave him a HAPPY FATHER’S DAY CARD (thanks for helping me with that MOM).     He knows I love him.    That’s the important thing!

Since it’s Father’s Day, my Mom always honors her own Dad who went to the Human Bridge in October of 1992.

  Mom With Her Dad In His Uniform

You’ve seen this photo before – Mom’s Dad walking her down the aisle.  You’d never know he was sick by then – hadn’t slept in a few days but insisted on escorting Mom down the aisle in his Air Force uniform even though he’d retired years before.    I of course never knew him but I wish I had.    Mom says he was special.    I think ALL Dads are special – each in some SPECIAL way.

So I hope ALL Father’s everywhere have a special day today – you are loved and appreciated……….and you do a BIG JOB as a Dad.     I appreciate that and I know my Mom appreciates that she had a great Dad too!

Love you Daddy!   Hugs, Teddy

 

Sammy wanted to be in on the LOVE today – both of us thank you for being our Dad !!

 

We hope all Dads have a great day in Heaven or here on Earth

Love, Teddy (and Mom too)

 

Zoe you will be missed by all of us who knew you……farewell beautiful Angel.

    • It’s so foggy here this morning that you can’t see a THING out the windows. Mom and Dad went grocery shopping earlier and had to creep along the road – fog so dense it was amazing. Anyway, hopefully that will go away but even if it doesn’t we’re not going anywhere else today! Just staying home and relaxing as much as possible. We send you HAPPYHUGS!

      Love, Teddy

  2. Teddy, and Angel Sammy too, I love seeing you reaching out to Angel Sammy on this special day. And Sammy, that was so right of you as well to show and tell your love for your Dad. Happy Father’s Day to him. Cat Dad’s are special for certain. All my human brothers are my dads. So I have three of them. Have a happy day with your Dad, Teddy, and give him all the attention he deserves. Mom and I enjoyed seeing your Grandpa, and your Dad as well this blessed day.

    • Hi Katie! I am going to me the best boy I can today – no running away after a squirrel while I’m outside with Dad – no hiding in the garden so he can’t find me to make me come back inside – I’m just going to be GOOD – it’s the best gift I can give. You’re lucky to have THREE Dads in your human brothers. I know they all treat you as the special Princess that you are – and they enjoy seeing you when they visit just as you love when they stay there. I hope Dads EVERYWHERE have a wonderful day.

      Love, Teddy

  7. I hope your Dad has a great Father’s day. I think it is good that your Mom’s Dad was there to walk her down the aisle. My dad died two months before I met my wife. I wish he could have held on for just a little longer so the two could meet.
