3rd Annual World Cat Day!!!

Let us all celebrate ~ World Cat Day!
 
Celebrate kitties in your own special way.
Those here and near, and those now above,
all the kitties so dear, all the kitties we love.

First we want to remember our sweet sister Sniffie.  Mom looked at our last year's post for World Cat Day and it was the same week she found the lump on Sniffie's back.   We miss our wonderful little girl and we hope you don't mind that we continue to keep her on our blog on Fridays. 




We are re-cycling some of last year's World Cat Day post because we really wanted to honor those who came before again.
We don't want this to be a sad post - it's a celebration of some of the furry cool kitties Mom has known!


Cory was Sniffie's littermate...


Uriel - our first Birman. Uriel was a red point and was a sweetie! Uriel would give a Paws Up to World Cat Day!!

Tabriz - Mom's Flame Point Himalayan watching over little Baschert.

 
Mom's first Himalayan - Khartoum. Khartoum was Tabriz's daddy. Mom says she was WAY TOO tan in this picture and had on some VERY intense eyeshadow! We say she was WAY younger too!!
 

We hope you didn't mind seeing those who came before again.  Mom promised each one of them (and us too) that they would always be with her. Each one of these special kitties has a purrty urn and they are all part of our home. Many thanks to Ann of Zoolatry for the wonderful graphic for World Cat Day.




UPDATE ON ELLIE:



Please continue your purrs and prayers.  She is still "punky" and doesn't have much appetite. She ate a little bit for Daddy 2 times yesterday and a smidge for Mom last night. She did jump in the window to watch Bird-Tv today, but she's really not herself.

Happy World Cat Day!!! We don't think remembering kitties is sad. I think it's good to remember those who came before. I did the same on my blog.

Love to Sniffie, Cory, Uriel (Uriel is the name of an Angel like my kitties), Tabriz, and Khartoum from me and I will take a moment of silence for all of them.

Cloon's Human: Lovely post and I love how you have kept Angel Sniffie on your blog, that is a brilliant idea and so special. My prayers and best of thoughts for Ellie for her to recover quickly back to her usual self and be in perfect health.

Purrs for Ellie!

We never got to meet Angel Sniffie. So, by you keeping her on your blog, we get to know her too. We appreciate getting to know such a precious soul. The dignity, and the way Sniffie remains such a member of your family has helped our Mumsy better handle her pain and loss over fuzzies that are her family and have gone to the Bridge.

(((hugs))) Thank you!
Happy World Cat Day!

We hope Ellie will soon be eating more - perhaps watching the birdies will make her feel a little better and she will eat later. Happy World Cat Day to you all.
