Guest Selfie In The Water

When I was out walking by the creek not too far from our home, I spotted this creature. He/She wanted to give a social distanced selfie from within the waters.
I think it is a muskrat, though at first I thought it might have been a beaver. But there are not felled trees that look 'beaverized' and in some pictures his tail is not wide and flat. He was just minding his own business, but he stopped just long enough before swimming quickly under the surface and then I didn't see him anymore. He must have magical disappearing qualities:)
So here are a series of pictures, I shall name them Muskie Ratty's Sunday Selfie Extraordinaire!
Hi, I am Muskie Ratty!
My thick tail made *her* think I was a!
I am being a wee bit bashful, Tee-hee!
So you want me to make a selfie?? Hmmm...

Sadly we had to say our final goodbye's to a few more kitties, recently.



We are hopping with The Kitties Blue, who are the faithful  hosts of this fun weekly event.


  1. What a sweetie! I just love that little water creature, thanks for sharing him/her with us.

  2. Wonderful images, one and all ... and love that little Mr Muskie! We thank you again for sharing sweet Zoey ... a beautiful picture you made for her.
    Love ... Ann and Dougie Dog from Zoolatry

  3. I have never seen a muskrat, and it was very nice of him to provide selfies so I can see what he looks like.

  4. Yep, that’s a muskrat! We see them all the time swimming in the river. We call them mud puppies. :)

  5. oh they look interesting! we once saw 87 or so in a row on the way to their pool... the mama had no clue from a distance what it was, but we started like rockets, you bet!!! hahahaha

  6. Mr. Muskrat did some great selfies. We're sorry to hear some friends aren't feeling well and it's always sad to see some friends go to the Bridge. We have our paws crossed for all of them.

  7. That's a terrific selfie! Thanks so much for the shout out, I sure appreciate it. I’m back home, I aced the stress test so my heart is good. I’ll be seeing my regular doctor soon to see what’s next.

  8. I would have thought that was a Beaver too! Don't feel bad about not being able to drive to visit family, we aren't supposed to :)

  9. Sure looks like a beaver to me too. Maybe it's a beaver/muskrat combo! :)

  10. Aww... what a special guy, he must have heard about the Selfie hop and wants to get famous...well...I think he archieved his goal...MOL😺Clean Pawkisses for a Happy Thursday. Stay Safe Healthy and Yourselfie🙏🐾😽💞

  11. TBT: Happy picture, muskrat. I have never seem one of your kind so close. I've seen your cousin beavers though and followed them silently with an electric motor on a small boat. And then they see us and SPLASH with the tail! You need a bigger tail!
