Memories of Minxie: Caturday Art and Sunday Selfies

Hallo again, Effurrybuddies!

Today, We are devoting Our post to Mummy's furry furrst kitty, Angel Minxie - the Queen of Cats. We should, by rights, have written about her last week, because she was born on (or about) June 15th 1980, and flew away to the Rainbow Bridge on June 12th 1995, just three days before what would have been her 15th birthday - only Mummy was a bit distracted by all the bad things happening in the World, and especially, by the surge in new cases of the Horrible Coronavirus here in Israel.

Minxie, as you can see, was a beautiful tabby kitty, with the most loving nature you can imagine. She and Mummy had absolute trust in each other and she would often go to sleep on Mummy's chest or tummy, safe in the knowledge that Mummy would purr-tect her and make sure that no harm would effur come to her. And Mummy did purr-tect her, until an Evil Cancer attacked Minxie, and although Mummy did all She could and spared no expense, She could not save Her Baby.








In this picture, you can see Minxie with Arabella Dolly, and with Felix, who are still with Us.  Sometimes, they whisper to Us and tell Us stories about Minxie.  

We decided to honour Minxie's Memory by making her the Star of this week's Sunday Selfies,  and it is she, the Furrst of the J-Cats, who will represent Us in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop hosted by Our Dear Furriends, the Kitties Blue and their HuMom, Janet.  Here is their Badge:




As usual, We are also taking part in the Caturday Art Blog Hop, hosted by the Wise and Lovely Athena, and her HuMum, Marie.  


Here is their Badge:  



We used the Stained Glass effect from LunaPic, at 60%, to artify Minxie's picture - and here she is, in all her glowing Glory:







Other News:

Before We get distracted,  We wanted to mention that this meowning, there was a paw-tial Eclipse of the Sun visible here in Israel (although, of course, We couldn't look at it because you should neffur look directly at the Sun, and certainly not when it is in Eclipse. Mummy says it can blind you). We think it got eclipsed because it was tired out after the Solstice yesterday. Maybe it had been celebrating too much (mol).

Last, but certainly not least, We want to wish you all Shavua Tov (a Good Week) and to remind you, whatever the state of the Pandemic in your neck of the woods, to stay safe and to look after your Humans.



Pawpats and kitty kisses to you all.
