Sunday Selfie Hop

Standard

Happy Sunday!    It’s that time again – SELFIES!    If you’d like to post your Selfie in the Hop – click the badge above and find where to link up!    We’ll see you when we hop around to visit.

I have a DIFFERENT Selfie today.    It’s a photo of “Nermal” who is our next door neighbor’s cat but she is one of two cats who comes HERE for breakfast almost every morning.   The neighbors let her fend for herself by letting her out every night and we get up super early and she knows it.   SO – she comes over here for breakfast.   Mom puts a bowl of crunchies on the front porch for her.     Since Mom didn’t take any new photos of me this week – we’re going with a photo of HER.

 

 

Mom thought she’d jazz Tina up a bit with Lunapic before she made the puzzle…………………………………..She used the “SADNESS” filter…….we think it’s SAD that her family leaves her out at night with all the foxes that live around here.    She must have street smarts though because she’s been their cat for at least six years.

And here’s the puzzle we made of Tina for those of you who enjoy a Sunday puzzle-fest!      Happy Sunday everybody…………….

Click this Mini-Nermal for the puzzle and GOOD LUCK.

 

Love, Teddy

  1. I cannot believe that your neighbors leave that beautiful kitty OUT at night to fend for herself…that is so, so dangerous for that sweet kitty, who, by the way, looks like a furrier cousin to ME.

    • She often will come spend the night on our front porch too. She has a front porch but I think she feels safer on mine! I think she is pretty smart but even SMART can’t keep her safe all the time at night.

  2. She is a pretty girl. It is a shame she is left out at night,but at least she knows where to come for breakfast.

  3. The is something an old person might do (others too, I know) but the older set used to think they are supposed to be out at night. Back then, it wasn’t quite as dangerous. What a shame too that they won’t take her to a groomer for her haircut. But of course they think they know best.

    • Yes they really are not friendly people and I’ve never even told them that THEIR cat shelters on OUR front porch instead of theirs and has one of her meals here every day and has for years. It’s just scary to me because we see foxes all the time – we were on the front porch in daylight yesterday when one went up our neighbor’s driveway….big red fox. EEEEK!

    • I do too – I asked her “Mom” once why she let her out and she said “because she’s a cat and she WANTS to be out”………from her tone I knew to just drop it. Teddy probably would like to be out all the time too but no way would I do that in a million years – never have with any of my cats…….it’s just too dangerous.

      • I lost three cats because my then husbands insistence that they go out at night. He cried when the last one allowed out to my fright, was killed by a car.

        • So sad that people think cats should be out at night to hunt (??) – housecats are certainly well fed inside where it’s safe. Hunting may occur at night but MOST of the time it’s the cats that get hunted and not the reverse….that is heartbreaking.

    • Well she knows she’s safe up on our front porch……..AND that if she comes here I will give her some food. She doesn’t SEEM to be starving – I’m sure they feed her but I do believe she likes the food at Teddy’s Cafeteria more than at her house!

    • I know………The lady next door says she loves her and I’ve seen her petting Nermal but I just think they don’t understand how dangerous it is for her to be out all the time especially at night.

  4. Nermal is adorable. That is sad that she is outside at night. I would steal her if she was in my neighborhood. 🙂 Very pretty art. Thank you for the puzzle. XO

    • Nermal is OK…….she hisses when she sees me inside my own house at the window by the door. Sometimes she runs when Mom opens the door to give her a bowl of food (but she comes right back)…..we suspect some of the other neighbors she visits aren’t as obliging as we are and have chased her off their porches!

  6. She looks an awful lot like a kitty I know!

    Some cats do well on the mean streets. There’s a white cat that loves to lay in the middle of the street at the entrance to my cul-de-sac. I took a photo of it six years ago, and almost everyone felt sorry for it (don’t know its gender). Despite being outdoors a lot and using the road as a bed, the cat is still around. It was lying right by the curb at the stop sign as I went to work last night…

    • Literally a “street cat”…..LOL. Yes Nermal does look like a kitty you know (and all of us who know the Nest). She seems to be healthy and well fed (by me and I assume her own humans). I think if Teddy had his way he would be outside all the time but that’s just not gonna happen. I seem to remember your photo of the white cat……..!

    • We have never met nose to nose. I sometimes see her in her yard next door but I know where my property ends and Mom and Dad don’t want me leaving our own yard so I don’t. I don’t try to scare her away when she visits for breakfast either!

    • Teddy tells me when we have company on the porch. He makes sure that I give each visitor a bowl of food…….then he watches until they go away. He doesn’t mind sharing “his” porch – he really seems to know that they need a handout. He never tries to escape through the door either – it seems to be “all about them” and not him. Very cool.

  9. We like the name Tina better, and she sure is a beauty. What a sweet face!!! We hope she is able to keep herself safe since her peeps seem to be shirking their responsibilities. You are so good to watch out for her.

  10. Oh, dear…put the cat out is SO yesterday…or even older. Phooey. It will be a sad day when she gets eaten by a fox or otherwise meets her end due to the careless attitudes of her peeps. She sure is beautiful! I guess her peeps will miss out on the joys of a warm kitty purring on their laps (or beds) during the nights…Thanks for being her ‘guardians’

    And thanks for the puzzle; it will be a doozy!

    • The roaming cats (and thankfully there are only three that we know of) know they can come here for a square meal and a cat enclosure for safety or warmth in the winter when we turn on the heated pad. We know Nermal knows she can do that and the other two do as well. I sometimes wonder if during the almost year before we adopted Ted at the shelter he may have had to do something similar to survive. It’s a small thing for us to do but it could mean the world to these cats.

  11. I am sad that they leave her out at night… whatever the reason. I’m thinking they don’t want her disturbing their sleep at night. Ugh… just makes me want to smack them with a wet noodle. Makes me HAPPY that she feels safe with you and that you are keeping her safe as you can by welcoming her to your porch and feeding her. People… I think I am just peopled out lately.
