Aunty A's Sunday Guest Selfies

Petcretary was gone for a may have noticed her absence in helping us comment in your blogs, though she did manage to get to some of them...she will *try* to get caught up...eventually...and when its Thanksgiving she will get all behind yet again! OMC! OMD!!

Petcretary stuffed us unwilling felines into our PTU's and she bundled us off to that place she cals the 'spa'. Sheesh, its no spa we can assure you. Its a huge cage in the vet office building. He lets his mascot kitties roam the premises, and he has a shelter in another building (Froggie's Pond)...but we don't get those privileges...we did get poked and prodded and well, at least we did not need to have our pearlies cleaned at this time, Hooray. That vet spent a lot of time with Minko, because it is he or is wife assistant who feed him...thanks!

Finally after forever she, the petcretary came and rescued  us out of there...and now we are home again...ahhh nothing like Home Sweet Home!

So of course she grumbled something about not having the time to help us make selfies, but she did have some to show you of her Aunt, who was the reason for the trip she made into Canada. Yes she was there on election day...and no she did not vote...she is a 'resident alien' here with one of those so called green cards...why?? Its white! Anypaws, she was there because on Nov7th it was her Aunt's 97th birthday. Hip Hip Hooray!! She would not want to miss it, its always a great time and she gets to join up with her sister and some if her cousins, too.
The weather was great and not at all what one would expect at this time of year, temps in the 60's and pretty sunshine too! The leaves were mostly still showing off their beauty, and it was altogether a wonderful time, with fresh memories made!
 Then she came back into the USA. Which, well, it still seemed the same even after the election with what some peeps call earth shattering or things to that effect. She didn't see anything shattered except the cars in a bad accident when she was almost back home...she did pawyer that hopefully no peeps were too badly hurt.
And the sun has risen and set and risen as it always has...and the residents at her work are all still there, with some new ones to pamper too.

Petcretary had to be at her work this Sunday Selfie day...and well a funny thing happened there.
Nov 13 is her she was actually working on her own special day. No matter, she didn't mind too much.
Anypaws she was at the nurses desk discussing things with another staff member when out of nowhere a big pink helium balloon came floating by...slowly and at shoulder height, so she could see it was a pink birthday balloon with a butterfly design. Hey! Where did that come from? No clue, not from the other nurse either. Wow! So petcretary plucked it out of the air and made a decoration for herself out of it...and then all her residents had fun telling her Happy Birthday!
Another thing that gave goosebumps to petcretary: She shared the same birthday as her mom, our Oma...who was born on Nov 13 1923. Well, there was a resident in her facility that has the exact same birthday as our Oma! OMC! OMD! That gave petcretary a moments pause, because even after 10 years she still misses sharing the double birthday with her mom.
The lady at her work is not able to communicate due to severe dementia and other health sad:(
Petcretary doesn't look after that lady so she didn't even know it was her B'Day until after she had gone to bed for the night...

OK, Enough blathering about stuff, here are the selfies you were waiting to see... and next time there might also be some more guest selfies:)
(Pee Ess: We let petcretary hog our blog for non furry selfies this week...)
Tante Arendina, Nov 6th, 2016...still 96!
Petcretary, Her Aunt and her sister
Basking in the glory of being the center of attention for a while:)

Petcretary, her Aunt, and her sister and a few cousins.

The restaurant is a Chinese Buffet, and since it was her birthday they put this special hat on her to honor her occasion:)

Enjoying her 97th birthday dinner; Nov 7th, 2016
Tante Arendina ~ 97 years young!!
We are joined with the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop at The Cat On My Head
And while we were at the spa and petcretary was on vacation, she remembered that her second cat, and her first kitten had his RB day...on Nov 10th...he was a sweetie and a rascal too. He decided to go to live at the RB at the young age of seven...he had a sad...
Rory a good furend from Catster sent us this nice memento:
Thanks Rory and your whole family


  1. Happy birthday to Tante Arendina. She is looking very good.
    Happy birthday also to the Petcretary, and also to Simba at the Bridge.

  2. Hi there, we so enjoyed seeing all the humans pix but that does not sound like a "spa" to us where the furrrballs went. Can't believe your Tante is 97!!! She's looking good. Happy Bday to you too, belatedly. And blessings to the RB kitties. BTW we enjoyed having you in our Halloween show - thank you very much for sharing your fun artwork with the gang! Love, P & P

    1. Thanks so much! And we are evfur so glad to be back at home.

      Thanks for hosting that fun slide show!

  3. Please tell the petcretary at your house, "thank you," for sharing the photo of her aunt. What an amazing accomplishment to achieve the age of 97. We'll be cheering her on to make it to 100 years old. We are happy everyone is home again where they belong. Thank you for hopping. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    1. Thanks! That would be quite something if the 100th birthday was reached.Petcretary is helping a lady at her nursing home who is 102,and we recently lost a sweet lady who was also over 100. It is not too unusual:)
      It took several days for us kitties to get back to feeling safe and normal, we hid a lot...and we paid petcretary back by having some nice upchucking sessions, MOL!!

  4. 97 years young, is a gift in deed, Happy Birthday to your petcretary's Aunt! Glad you are all home safe and sound. Have a wonderful week! purrs ERin

    1. Thanks, Erin! We love her so much...we have not evfur met her, but our angel furblings have, she sometimes would come here to stay for a few days when our unfurbros were a lot younger.

  6. Happy Birthday to your aunty. She still looks very young :) Pawkisses for a Wonderful Day :) <3

    1. She does, but sometimes she looks a lot when she worries about things. Sadly she is beginning to have some issues like blindness and deafness, and slight dementia. But you know, its great when she doesn't see the petcretary for a really long time and she doesn't hesitate a bit and recognizes her right away!
      We cherish each day we have with her:)

  8. We hope everything gets back t0 normal fer you. Hey wait, did we hear a Happy Birfday song in the background?
