Sunday Shelfie

Feed me now!

When I want something and Mum is ignoring me by just lounging on the sofa watching TV I jump on top of the bookshelf behind her. This is what I was doing the other night. 

Marie: I don't ignore you, Athena, most of the time I feed you and you want more straight away. I'm looking after you, baby.

MARIE

1. Something I lost and was never able to find was Star Wars books from when I was young. Yes, I loved Star Wars. I was 11 when the first film came out in 1977. I reckon my mum threw them out along with all the Star Wars figures my brother collected. Or maybe we outgrew them because we soon got into music in a big way a couple of years later. I know, I wonder what they would be worth today!

2. When I'm depressed, I want to hide from the world. When I'm at my lowest I put my phone on silent and hide under the duvet. Everything becomes a trigger and I can't face people and lately, I've been avoiding social media too. 

3. The cold doesn't bother me. The summer heat always depresses me. I could never live in a hot climate. Funny that my DNA ancestry is mainly Mediterranean (Greek) though I was born here in the UK.

4. I don't handle life very well. I find it too stressful and depressing. I am an empath and highly-sensitive.


ATHENA

1. Something I lost and was never able to find was my biological mum. I was an orphaned kitten when I was found in someone's garden and got taken to a rescue shelter where Mum came and adopted me.

2. When it's cold, I want to snuggle between Mum's legs in bed. The duvet and the heat from her body make me feel comfy and warm.

3. The vacuum cleaner doesn't bother me. 

4. I don't handle the cold or extreme heat very well.

I hope you weren't kept waiting too long, Athena.

Queen Nellie used to sit on the bookcase beside Mom's chair and stare at her. It has been replaced by a table and I, Marv, like to sit there and stare at Mom when I want something, I am the only current cat who does that.

Nice selfie from the bookcase. Thank you both for participating in the fill-ins. I am sorry you no longer have your Star Wars stuff, I am sure it would be worth a lot. I know how you feel about wanting to shut the world out. And Athena I am sorry you lost your biological mum, but you are blessed to have such a loving human mum. XO

You look very thoughtful up there pretty Athena. Those were all interesting answers.

That's a nice SHELFie, Athena. Did you have to wait long for Mum? :)

TW feels your pain. Her mom gave away her Shirley Temple doll which was worth hunnerts of dollars 20 years ago.

Katie Isabella said...

I know what you mean. My dad gave away my comic collection which today, though well used, would fetch thousands.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

Hahaha. SHELFIE. I love it!

Your photo on the shelfie was cute I know. Tell mum to hold on, good times come and go and we must treasure our good moments.
