Rare Photo

Gus:  I know today is Selfie Sunday but the Mama was able to capture a rare photo - all three of us together on the couch!

I love both Pearl and Jaq but there is a little sibling rivalry between Jaq and Pearl.  I think they just pretend that they don't get along.  I mean, look at this photo.  They are holding hands!

Guest Selfie and Adoption News

Gus:  We have a guest selfie taker today.  Meet Dante the cat intern at the Mama's office.  I think Dante was trying to hint to a co-worker that he needed to go home with her.  Never fear though, Dante was adopted by a nice family this weekend so he got his furever home after all.

Speaking of adoptions - both Scarlett and Rhett were adopted!

Scarlett had nothing to fear.  She was only at the adoption center a few minutes before she found her family.

Rhett took his time waiting until the right little boy came to visit him.  He and his little boy are going to have so much fun together!  I hope we hear what they decide to rename Rhett.  Some potential names where Mike Claws, Bobert, and French Fry.

But that's not all!  Remember Mama's cat intern, Bo?  She was adopted too!

This weekend Great Plains SPCA had one of their biggest adoption events of the year.  Friday and Saturday 282 animals found their furever homes.  Isn't that amazing????  Congratulations to all of them!

Graduation Day for Rhett and Scarlett

Rhett:  Pssst!  Scarlett!  The Foster Mama says today is Graduation Day.  What does that mean?

Scarlett:  I'm not sure.  Hopefully, Mr. Gus will tell us.

Scarlett:  Mr. Gus what is Graduation Day?

Gus:  Great question, Scarlett!  It means that you have completed all of your training here at Purr's Training Acatemy.  You are ready to find your furever home!

Scarlett:  But I don't want to leave you, Mr. Gus.

Scarlett:  Are you sure I'm ready? What if no one wants me?

Jaq:  Seriously?  You were one of our star pupils!  Just go to that Adoption Center and turn on the cute! Failure is not an option!

Gus:  Why don't you practice your cuteness?

Gus:   Awww...I think you got it!  Total cuteness!  You will have no problems finding a family!

Nap Interrupted Sunday Selfies

Gus:  My nap was rudely interrupted by the minions students today.  

First, Rhett decided to lay down next to me.  That was fine but then he wanted to play!  DUDE!  IT'S NAP TIME!  Didn't I teach you anything?

I thought I got rid of him but then Scarlett had to join me.  She kept asking all these questions.  "Mr. Gus, how do I do this?  How do I do that?"  GEESH!  It was exhausting!

Luckily, the Mama wanted to do a photo shoot for The Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfies.  She saved me from the question asking.

Scarlett was up first.

 Rhett was next.

Finally, things have calmed down and I'm ready to take my nap.

He's behind me, isn't he?  So much for nap time!  One more week!  One more week before this class graduates and I get a much needed vacation.

Blessing of the Animals

Gus:  So the kittens got to do something cool.  They went to the Blessing of the Animals at our church.  There were a lot of woofies there but the kittens didn't care.

After a brief service, the kittens got in line.  When it was their turn, they were anointed with oil and prayed over.  Then they signed the blessing with their paw print. 

You may be wondering why they needed to sign the blessing.  In addition to being blessed, they made a covenant with God to watch over their new humans.

All the people they met at the service oohed and aahed over them.  They wanted to get out of their stroller to meet everyone but the Mama wouldn't let them.

They even liked this nice Golden Retriever.

Isn't it wonderful to be a creature of God?

Gus:  Today, I would like to introduce to the cat that has been living at the Mama's office - Bo Girl. Bo is there through a program at Great Plains SPCA called Nine to Five Felines.  The program allows businesses to foster cats.  Typically, the Mama's office has a cat for a week, giving stressed out cats a break from the shelter.  Bo was a special case and she has lived at the office for 3 months!

When Bo first came to the office, they knew she was overweight.  They soon realized she was in pain.  After some tests and x-rays they discovered she had arthritis.  Finally, after several months, Bo's pain is under control.  She's lost some weight and she is now ready to find her forever home.

Bo is an absolute sweetheart!  She isn't an active kitty so she would prefer a quieter home.  She would love to find a home where she can hang out all day next to her new family.  Maybe watching tv or knitting?  Or even hanging out with someone that works from home?

Mama and her co-workers adore Bo!  They are sad to see her go back to the adoption center.  There will be lots of tears this week. While the office has been great for Bo, it isn't the same as a home and Bo deserves only the best.

You can learn more about Bo here.  Please share Bo's information and help her find her forever home.

We decided to let Bo take the Sunday Selfie this week.  Isn't she a natural?

Introducing The Gone with the Wind Kittens

Gus:  It was kind of a stressful week.  We realized we hadn't formally introduced you to the surviving Gone with the Wind Kittens.  So without further ado, we would like to introduce you to the cutest little orange tabby, Rhett Butler and the most adorable tortie, Scarlett O'Hara.
