Sunday Selfie and Friendly Fill-Ins

Happy Sunday Selfie 😻

Out in my catio 

Just posted my first reel on Instagram 😻

Friendly Fill-Ins 

Ellen of 15andmeowing came up with the first two questions and Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with the second two. 
1. You don’t have to convince me to ___________________________. 
2. _____________is causing me stress. 
3. Speaking from experience, _________. 
4. Over time, my opinion of _________ has changed.


1. You don’t have to convince me to eat meat or dairy ever again. Watching the powerful documentary Earthlings in 2014 made me vegan overnight.
2. A lot of stuff is causing me stress. I am so anxious at the moment and everything is getting to me. 
3. Speaking from experience, you can't just snap out of depression. 
4. Over time, my opinion of many people has changed. 


1. You don’t have to convince me to eat more. I love my food! And yes, unlike Mum, I eat meat.
2. Not much is causing me stress - though Mum feeling anxious can make me restless. Luckily, I am a calming purring machine and she soon feels better after I offer myself up for some therapy stroking and head butts. 
3. Speaking from experience, when you are blessed to have been born a cat it's so easy to get your human to do whatever you want. 
4. Over time, my opinion of some food has changed.

Sweet selfie. We have to work to keep Mom's anxiety level down.

We're so sorry to hear you are dealing with stress anxiety, Mum Marie. It can be so debilitating. We are glad you have Athena there to help you get through it.

Athena, we loved your reel. You look beautiful, as always!

Timmy Tomcat said...

Athena that is a wonderful Selfie and you are so relaxed in your Cat Meditation clip. Great fill ins from both of you and it is clear that you fit each others needs. Purrs friends

Cat and DOG Chat With Caren said...

I hear you about feeling stressed. I apologize for not being around as much as I used to be. My husband is now working 4 days a week which means I have INSANE Levi from 7:30 am til 12:30 pm (I put him in his crate at 12:30 til 3pm when my husband gets home). My days are spent breaking up fights between he and Roary, going up and down our MANY stairs to go outside to take him to the bathroom, MULTIPLE times during that time span and when he's finally in the crate I have to get things done here, such as cooking, laundry, etc., that I can't do when he is up. While I love him dearly, I will NEVER, EVER have a puppy again lol. Cats are sooo much easier! Last week I broke down crying on Thursday when my friend called, because I have no human contact during the week (except on Saturdays at Weight Watchers and I don't count my husband lol) at all.....and last week I seriously had about all I could take. I TOTALLY get it. Hoping you don't hate me! As he gets older, things should get easier (I pray)....he's only 5 months old right now. xoxo

Those were good answers and such a sweet selfie pretty Athena!

Marvelous Marv said...

Athena! Terrific selfie! Marie, I feel for you. You are not alone. The upheavals in my life in the last year and a half have been dramatic.Add Covid and having my son living with me because his work is gone has been extra stressful. The animals give me serenity and hope. There is nothing like a cat purring and cuddling for releasing the stress in the current moment. Sending you much love and strength. Barb

Beautiful selfie. Thank you both for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I am sorry about your depression and I know it is not easy to get out of, but I pray you will.
I admire your not eating meat and dairy. I need to at least eat less of both, trouble is when I go meatless, I tend to lean on dairy, but there are so many vegan options now that I don't have an excuse. Athena. you are right, my cats can get me to do anything. XO

Dash Kitten Crew said...

You look tremendous.

I would suggest meditation for anxiety. I use Headspace on my iPhone (monthly or annual paid) and it has a great set of courses to learn meditation from the very first step.Once you have the basics, you can do a proper Anxiety meditation course too. It's worth a month's free trial.

That is a lovely selfie of you out enjoying the fresh air.

Eastside Cats said...

Athena, like your mom, The Hubby and I are vegan too, and I only buy products that are cruelty-free. In fact, am looking for a cold-weather coat that is vegan, but I think I waited too long and may have to try again in Autumn.
We try to only use sustainable things too, but it's darned hard to accomplish, since everything is wrapped in cellophane or plastic.
