Christmas Eve Sunday Selfies

We're pawticipating in The Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfies today.



Hello?   Um....how do I do this?  What's a selfie?  It's for our blog?  We have a blog?  What IS a blog???  Wow....so much for me to learn.

I guess I should introduce myself!  My name is Noelle (well, until yesterday it was Spanky but it's Noelle now).  I am the newest Florida Furkid.


Sorry that this is blurry.....I never took a selfie before.....let me try again.....


That's better!   I am going to let my new Mom tell you more about me.

Hi all, Mom Sharon here.  The other day I took some donations to the Friends of Animals Sanctuary thrift shop.  I was way overdue taking the items because some were Christmas.   There was a photo of this little girl on the counter saying she needed a home.  She was really cute and tugged at my heart but I said no way.  Over the next couple of days, I thought about her a LOT.   I also remember Bill saying we needed to find another little girl to love after we lost Ellie.  He DID want another Birman but there are no Birman kittens around here right now.  SOOOOOOOOOOOOO......after talking to Gracie's Mom, Steph and my friend Donna, I decided to get more info on her.  She was not local....she was in Palm Coast which is 3 hours north of us.  The foster Mom said she rescued her and her two brothers and Mom not long after they were born.  She thinks they were born around the time of hurricane Irma.  Of course, that is the week Bill left us.  While I was talking to her, the cardinal came to the bird feeder and I feel like it was a sign from Bill to get her. Noelle did well in the car and is starting to settle in.  She's in our front bathroom and Raz and Allie are VERY curious!  She's still a bit scared but I did get her to purr.   Please welcome Noelle!  (thanks to Stephanie for suggesting  the name....purrfect for a Christmas kitty)

You know that we are already in love with this little cutie pie. It's going to be so much fun that we are both breaking in new kittens at the same time. We pray that she and Raz and Allie become friends quickly. We send all our best wishes to Noelle. Mau sends Allie snuggles, cuddles, love and smooches. We all send lots of love. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer p.s. The cardinal definitely was yet another sign!

That sweet little face says it all - "I'm HOME at last!".....it's a big adjustment from the safety of her foster home but she's going to LOVE being there with you all. She's precious and we love her already. The very best Christmas present is someone to share more love with......and no doubt Mr. Bill DID send her to you for comfort and love. Welcome home Noelle!

Love and Merry Christmas Eve Day
Teddy and Mom Pam
