Sunday cat selfie: Sharing a lap
It's a peaceful partnership, but last week, Popoki tried something a little different. Rather than waiting for the afternoon to come, she decided to hop right up on top of her dog sister. She seemed so proud of herself that I thought we should do a few selfies.
Notice that she's booted the little dog to the edge of my lap here. That gives Popoki a better view of the computer screen. As well all know, supervision is vital.
Thankfully, Sinead doesn't seem to mind too much. In fact, I think she sort of liked the extra warmth Popoki's big body brought her.
These photos are part of the Sunday Selfie blog hop series I do most weeks, through the kindness of the wonderful bloggers at The Cat on My Head. And this week, I thought I'd try something new, too.
Every Wednesday, I head out to Willamette Humane Society (I'm a board member as well as a volunteer), and I take snaps of the kitties waiting for homes there. I also write up a blog about their experiences, hopes and dreams. Sometimes, the photos I take look a lot like selfies. And I thought it might be fun to share them here. After all, these cats need homes!
So here's the inaugural share.
This is Ike. He's a 10-year-old Russian blue mix with pretty green eyes. He came into the shelter due to some sort of housing difficulty, and he caught a pretty nasty cold from some of the other residents in the shelter. As a result, he's healing up in a foster home.
He can be adopted from that foster home, and he has a lot going for him. Ike is friendly with all other cats, and he has a wonderful history of life with dogs. He is litter-box trained, at a healthy weight, and FIV/FELV negative. Ike also is a water cat. He loves, loves, LOVES to splash around in his water dish. It's pretty hilarious.
Willamette Humane Society is in Salem, Oregon. Families will need to contact the shelter in Salem to arrange for a meet-and-greet, and the families will need to fill out the paperwork at the main shelter, too. See more about Ike here. And see my latest blog post full of adoptables (all of whom are in new homes as of this morning--yay!) right here.
Thanks for looking (and sharing!). And do leave me a comment so I'll know you were here.
