Sunday Selfie and #WorldAnimalDay

Happy Sunday!

Yesterday I was sitting by the patio door warming myself in an afternoon sun puddle. Then my Mum came up to me, and I thought at first she would close the curtain as she is such a sun-phobe, but thankfully she didn't as she knows how important it is for me to get some Vitamin D. After telling me how beautiful I am for the millionth time, she took this on her iPhone. She let me enjoy some more sun and then I got bored of it and went off to seek a more shaded place in the house for a much-needed nap.

Mum then decided to add a grunge type frame to this selfie in BeFunky (I don't know why, but she is obsessed with those free online photo editors and apps).

Today is also World Animal Day. Mum says every day should be World Animal Day and I agree. 

World Animal Day

The mission of World Animal Day is to raise the status of animals to help improve animal welfare standards all around the world. It's a day which hopes to unite the animal welfare movement "mobilising it into a global force to make the world a better place for all animals."

Celebrated in many different ways in every country "irrespective of nationality, religion, faith or political ideology", World Animal Day aims to create a world where animals are "recognised as sentient beings and full regard is always paid to their welfare."

My animal-loving Mum and I are all for that! Mum says she will always stand up for animals and be their voice. That's why every day is animal day for her, as she does something each day to help them. I of course help her in any way I can, but my main focus is the welfare of rescue pets, especially rescue kitties, because as a rescue cat myself, I know what they are going through and how scary it is to be a homeless pet without a loving forever home. Luckily for me, I found the purrfect home with my mum Marie when I was 10 weeks old. But some cats wait ages, and some very sadly do not find a home at all. So my message here to everyone is to always adopt don't buy a pet. Check out your local animal shelter and you will find the purrfect furry companion! 

We know many of our blogging pals and followers speak up for animals and it is always World Animal Day for you too, so come on, let's help animals and spread the word every day and make this a safe and beautiful world for all beings!

Very nice selfie and post. I always adopt from shelters or keep any that show up at my door ( after I make sure they are not the neighbors' cats).
