Human-Animal Relationship Awareness Week #FlashbackFriday

Happy Feline Friday!

For #HumanAnimalRelationshipAwarenessWeek we thought we'd do a quick Flashback Friday post featuring selfies of me with my mum.

For those who are visiting for the first time, this rescue cat met her human mum back in 2011 at Wood Green, The Animal Charity and we knew we were meant for each other. It WAS love at first sight 💕

I jumped into Mum's arms and that was that. From the very first day that I arrived in my forever home I leaped out of my carrier and filled my small belly with the kitten food Mum provided for me. I looked around my new surroundings but to me they didn't feel new or scary at all. 

I let Mum pick me up and cuddle me from the very start and as soon as she sat down I jumped onto her lap and started purring. 

Even though I was socialised by my carers at Wood Green before I was put up for adoption at 10 weeks old it wasn't the only reason I felt at ease with my new family and home. I'd known Mum before in a past life. For those who don't believe, well, that's up to you. But there is a deep soul-connection with me and my Mum!

And as Mum would put it: Meow Love is the Best Love 💓

You may or not have seen this photo before but here it is and Mum made three different versions because she likes to play around with effects and filters!

This is cool
Pop Art style

We could use the above 
for tomorrow's Caturday Art Blog Hop but Mum has created another masterpiece for that (masterpiece because I'm the model as usual).

And here's a special treat for new fans -a flashback video from our YouTube Channel

1. I have been _________ for _________.

2. Have you _________?

3. I always _________ this time of year.

4. The world could use more _________.


1. I have been hoping for earnings to come my way from my books and designs for years and years and I'm fed up and tired that it comes easy to others and not for me. I'm not a young woman anymore and I feel that time is running out. I am writing this in my morning mood and it's always negative but sometimes negative is being realistic. Sometimes thinking positive just doesn't work. 

2. Have you ever felt you don't belong here? I do. I've always felt different and that I don't belong in this world. 

3. I always love this time of year but it also makes me feel sad that another year has gone by so quickly. Quicker and quicker as I get older it seems. 

4. The world could use more compassion, peace, and understanding.


1. I have been waiting for that treat for ages. Hey, Mum, get off the computer!

2. Have you ever wished your human would just stop staring at screens all day?

3. I always feel cold at this time of year and want to snuggle up with Mum all day.

4. The world could use more feline leaders! Larry for Prime Minister! I could be a leader too of course, but I don't do politics. I'm more happy being a meowdel and Internet star and being a voice for homeless pets all over the world.

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Your post is so full of love that it brought tears to my eyes.
I do believe that you knew each other in a previous life, and hope I can meet Eric and Flynn again at some time.

We enjoyed your answers and are glad you are both a part of our world! You two were sure meant to be together!

Sandee said...

Sometimes you just know where you belong and yes I believe in past lives.

Love Marie's last fill in the best. Yes that's what we need. And Athena should get treats on demand. Just saying.

Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend, Princess Athena. My best to your mom. ♥

It is a tough time of year; it effects me too. Plus, I pile on worry about The 'O' Cats, and commuting in bad weather, and lots more darkness. And although this is considered a family time of year, being around my family makes me more anxious, and would rather just stay home with the family that The Hubby and I have created for ourselves, where it's loving and peaceful.

Very sweet photos of you and your mum. I do believe in past lives.
Thank you both for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I understand #1, I feel the same way. I am sure not making money on my blog or books, but I love the connection to other animal lovers. And Athena, I hope you got those treats. XO

You are a wise cat, Athena. Love your fill-ins. If TW did our fill-ins, she'd be a Debby Downer like your human.

Summer said...

I love that photo of the two of you.

I just love the photo of you two together, Athena and Marie. What a priceless memory! And thank you both for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins. Your answers are always so thoughtful. We are sending you both purrs and warm, happy wishes!
