The Water Works. . . .

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.

     To join in, get the Linky-Link code from their website– add it to your page– and enjoy the hop!

     As you may recall from last week, I have had a bit of an issue with the ol' waterworks. Yup, even a princess such as myself, can come down with icky issues that result frequent trips to the Royal Privy!

     Well, after a protracted wait—during which I most definitely wasn't holding myself, we got a call from Julie—one of the senior consultants heading up the team on my case, confirming no crystals or other nasty stuff going on. The blood in my sample was from a stress related issue as a result of going in for a dental. I shall be stressing to my 'stress' that it definitely has nothing to fear from the dentist, and that next time it is to behave itself, MOL

     Anyways, this weeks selfie was taken just before the clouds rolled in and the heavens opened. What little sunshine there was to illuminate me, soon passed and we seem to have been immersed in winter once more!

     I quite like this one, and whilst it isn't as sharp as last weeks, I like how the light defines just the edge of my right humerus/upper arm—and there was me thinking I didn't have a funny bone in my body, MOL.  Mrs H thinks that I may be a bit over exposed in this one. . . . what do you all think?






 
 
     To see what our pals got up to this week: hugs, rubs and scritches and treats in pursuit of the perfect selfie, please click the links below, and Enjoy the Hop!

  6. That is a gorgeous selfie. I am glad you are feeling better. I thought Katie was going to be a permanent resident with Savannah now- I must have misunderstood her post.

    I am glad you don't have crystals and that it was stress cystitis. I hope you are back to normal now.

  10. Great selfie, Erin. Isn't it funny how our pee can be affected by stress? We hope your pee gets better. :)

    1. Thank you, I rather liked it myself and even Mrs H came round to it once she put her glasses on, MOL
      Good luck for your own dental, and I hope it just ends up with a scale and polish, like me.

  15. Dear ERin, we are so glad to know you are healthy. Purrhaps Mrs. H could buy you Rescue Remedy to help you stay calm before going in for any future treatments. Mom uses it at our house on Wabbit who makes us all very stressed. Actually, pretty sure Mom has been adding Rescue Remedy to her morning coffee just to get through the day. Worth trying.

  16. Very retro! And the black and white shows off your tuxie-liciousness!

  17. My cats can relate to the dental trip, Erin. It can get to the best of 'em.

    I also wanted to thank you and Mrs H for your gentle words of sympathy when my Parker passed away. Such feelings from friends and well-wishers help tremendously.
