Early Morning Sunday Selfie

Mum's view almost every morning when she wakes up.

Those are her legs under the duvet. Always cosy and warm!

1. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that ___________________________. 
2. I am disappointed with _____________________-.
3. I _________ when I hear _________. 
4. I didn’t believe _________ until I saw it for myself.


1. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Chocolate Rice Cakes taste really nice. If I stick to eating some of those rather than my daily dose of very high calorie chocolate  maybe I will start to lose some weight.
2. I am disappointed with my whole life. 
3. I love it when I hear Athena meowing back to me. It sounds like she's saying Mum!
4. I didn’t believe that such evil animal cruelty could exist until I saw for myself (online). I went vegan as soon as I viewed Earthlings Of course I always knew animal cruelty existed (I turned vegetarian in my late teens) but seeing that (and learning about other horrors) made me want to dedicate my life to helping animals.


1. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Mum bought me more of that food I liked. It's called Scrumbles and it's made in the UK. Tasty! 
2. I am disappointed with the cold weather.
3. I love it when I hear Mum call from downstairs saying my dinner is ready.  
4. I didn’t believe Mums could be so loving and much-needed in life until I saw it for myself. As a young kitty I lost my birth mum so to have a human mum who loves me as if she gave birth to me herself is the most purrfect thing in the world.

Oh yes, we know that sentiment well. On the plus side, Mrs H's new electric blanket makes me want to stay in bed a bit longer, food needed or not.

Very sweet selfie. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers except I am sorry you feel that way about your life. I think you have done a lot with your books and blog and bringing awareness to all creatures in need. XO

Athena! What a wonderful face to wake up to! Our Mom usually wakes up to Kozmo screaming to go outside. Marie, we love your fill-ins--except #2. Often we think to little of ourselves and our accomplishments, don't let your inner critic take over. You are doing your best. You are strong and skilled. You are worthy. Always keep that in mind. Keep being awesome! Purrs Marvelous Marv and Barb

I went vegan many years ago, because of animal cruelty.
Attended a bake sale at a local rescue today, not to buy sweets but to donate and tell the folks to their faces that they are doing a terrific job.
AND, they had both cats and dogs up for adoption, and the cats were in a side chamber, away from the noise of the throng and the barking dogs.

What a great view your mum has when she wakes up each morning, Athena.

Mum Marie, we are sad about your fill-in for #2, because you are a friend to so many around the world, and you do so much to help so many animals and people. Please know that we think very highly of you, and we know others do, too. Sending you and Athena hugs across the miles.
