Sunday Selfies at Woodside, with Eddie!

Hello and welcome to The Sunday Selfies!    

 
We are joining The Kitties Blue, from The Cat on My Head blog, for the weekly celebration of blogs and bloggers from across the world and across the species.



Here are this week's selfies, which come from my alma mater, Woodside Animal Centre, in Leicester, UK.

Woodside is an independent animal centre, and is supported solely by love, hard work, charitable donations and fundraising. If it wasn't for them, I wouldn't be here today telling you this....


So without further ado, please give a big Sunday Selfies welcome to this weeks guest, EDDIE!



"Hi everyone! My name is Eddie and I am a rather special 5 year old boy.

Maybe you have noticed something about me already, besides my dazzling eyes that is.

No? Well I have only one front leg! Yup, when I arrived at here at Woodside I had an injured front leg. But it couldn't be saved so it had to go.

As a cat I am really pragmatic about these things, and the great thing is of course that I'm still an awesome guy with tons of love to give, and I can get around fine.

I do like to get to know folks before I give out all my love, but then that's true for most cats who come to be at animal centres. But the folks here say that I love fuss and attention, and do you know what.... I do!

The next best thing to that is exploring and playing with my cat scratcher and cat tree here at the centre.




When Erin and Mrs Hudson came to visit, I have to say that I didn't know about selfies, or easies.

But seems like it's as easy as One–Two–Three, pardon the pun. All you need to do, with a little help from your friends, is set this little camera somewhere safe, click the timer, and pose. Saying cream is optional, MOL

First I tried the sultry look, but that really isn't me....







Then I thought I should go for the nonchalant, casual guy look– after all, I am a casual sort of guy.

But you know what, I think the good old fashioned handsome happy mancat look is the one for me.

What do you think, did I do OK?"



To adopt Eddie, please visit or contact Woodside Animal Centre on UK tel. no. 01162 33 66 77  or email  info@rspcaleicester.co.uk.    A link to Woodside can be found, HERE.

Eddie's adoption fee (£70) covers his microchip, the snip, and all his injections and treatments at Woodside. He will want to be the sole cat, and be with older children.

All he needs now is a special home to make this special boy feel loved....

Chapter 30 of our world exclusive and stupendous fun story is published tomorrow, Monday! Do please come back to enjoy the fun!

  18. Oh Princess, that Eddie looks like a nice young chap. He must've had a terrible ordeal before he came to the center to have to then loose his paw. But he seems like a resourceful type and is sure to not be hindered by having only three. You did a nice thing by sharing pics and his thoughts. I bet he finds a forever home real soon.

    1. Thank you, from Eddie and I. He really is a nice guy, and the loss is behind him now and he is getting on with his life and just needs a family to share his love with, and to see past his looks into his heart.
