Sleepy Selfie

Hallo there, Effurryone!

Guess whose turn it is to star in this week's Sunday Snoozies Selfies Blog Hop, hosted by the Kitties Blue and their Human, Janet!

That's right! You got it in one! 

ME! The one and only Ser Caspurr the Conqueror, Furrst of His Name, King of the Tigger-Tabbies, Purrtector of the Realm, Breaker of Coffee Cups, Commander-in-Chief of the Impurrial Forces. 

In this photo, I may look as if I am sleeping, but don't be fooled! I am only purr-tending. I am awake on effurry count and I know EXACTLY what is going on around me!

And what I know is, Mummy is EXCEEDINGLY PUT OUT by the fact that the TV is on the blink and she can't get hold of Customer Services! However, She says it could have been worse. It could have happened last week and then She would have missed the Last Episode of Game of Thrones, which is a TV series lots and lots of Humans seem to be addicted to. We cannot understand why. After all, there aren't any Cats in it - only Dragons and Dire Wolves!

WE say, if the TV isn't working, that's all to the good. She will have more time to play with Us (mol).

Anyway, it is now time to join the Blog Hop - not before wishing you all Shavua Tov (a Good Week).

Furrst of all, the Badge:

And away We go:

Wear Orange For Crockett

Hallo there, Effurryone.

Today, We are dedicating a post to a sweet kitty whom, alas,  We scarcely knew - Crockett of the Lone Star Cats, who had a fatal accident last week and as a result, had to leave for the Rainbow Bridge far, far too soon. He was only five years old and was about to have celebrated his 5th Gotcha Day yesterday but it was not to be, and now, he has gone away to live with the Great Cat in the Sky.

We have been thinking a great deal about the many sweet kitties who have gone to the Bridge lately - some of them kitties we knew well, others whom We didn't know at all, but many of them kitties who have visited Our blog and whose blogs We have visited, briefly, meaning to leave a comment when We had more time, kitties whom We have come across on blog hops and told ourselves that they seem like nice, interesting Felines whom We would like to get to know propurrly some time - next week, or the week after, maybe. 

And then, suddenly, there is no time. Time has run out and it's Too Late and all We can do is grieve that We never got to know them.

So We have made a purromise to ourselves never again to put off making furriends with kitties whom We meet by chance on the Blogosphere, so that We never again have to say: "Oh, he/she sounds like such a sweet little kitty. If only We had had the oppurrtunity to know him/her".

And to make sure We remember that Vow, We are honouring Crockett's memory by taking part in the blog hop "Wear Orange for Crockett". We aren't exactly wearing orange, but Mummy has turned a group picture of Us all orange and added an orange frame, and We hope Crockett's family will understand and know that We are truly sorry for their loss. 

Fly free, sweet Crockett.  We wish We had known you better. We know you were greatly loved, not just by your Family but by many here in the Blogosphere who have paid tribute to you. Rest in Peace.

Trixie's Moody Sunday Selfie

Right! That's enough! I, Queen Trixie, Empurress of Jerusalem, Israel and the Entire Middle East, Guardian of the Boudoir, Alpha Kitty Extraordinaire, am tired of being shunted aside whenever one of the mancats has a birthday or a Gotcha Day, or whateffur!!!

It is My Turn to be the Sunday Selfie Star and this time, I am not giving up My Turn for anyone!

I have a truly beautiful and miaouwjestic selfie for my admirers this time - but furrst, I want to share with you something that is terribly worrying for Me and for All of Us.

You may have heard on the news about what is happening in the south of Israel, how Bad Humans in the Gaza Strip have fired over 430 rocket-boomies at Israel in the last 24 hours. One of them landed on a house in Ashkelon, where Mummy's auntie lives, and killed a man who lived there. Mummy's auntie is 90 years old and she doesn't have a boomie-shelter or a Secure Room and it's furry scary to think about her trying to run for cover when the sirens go off, since she finds it difficult even to walk!

Mummy's auntie has a house with a big garden and she feeds a lot of homeless kitties who live in the neighbourhood. What do all those kitties do when there is a boomie attack? They don't understand what's going on. They don't know that when the siren goes off, they must take shelter. And even if they did - where could they take shelter? Where could they run to?  They must be so furrightened!

So that's why I am looking a bit moody in my selfie. 

Can you tell from the picture how worried I am?

This image is Our Official Entry in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop hosted by the Kitties Blue and their Human, Janet.

Here is their badge:

Before We go, We would like to ask you to purray for the safety of all the kitties and humans affected by the boomies down in the south. We wish them - and you - a Good Week. Shavua Tov.

And now - let's blog hop:
