I have a special Eileen’s Critters And Sunday Selfie this week. On June 10, 2019 we got a picture of the our first Fawn of the 2019 season. Sorry if the picture is dark but Mamma Deer isn’t brave enough yet apparently to bring her baby out in daylight. I had to share this with you.
After a drink I think Mamma Deer is going to show her baby the ropes on how to go about posing for Sunday Selfies. For the first time I think this little Fawn did pretty good. Honestly, I think the Fawn is more interested in getting a drink. Mamma Deer is multitasking. She’s eating and posing for her Sunday Selfie and for Eileen Critters.
I would like to Introduce one of our yearlings to you. Her name is Dylan. I know Dylan is a boys name but we named her this because she eats a lot and as much as my 16 year old nephew who also is named Dylan. Yes my nephew eats a lot too.
You’ll remember way back in late 2018 or early 2019, I asked you all if you knew what kind of animal came to our campsite. One nice person told me it was probably a deer who was a few days or few weeks old. Then she told me she hoped she made it through the winter. I’m happy to say she did. However, she’s not doing good. Have you ever heard of Mange or Wasting Disease? Then you know it usually doesn’t end well for the animal who has it. I’m sorry to say, I suspect she has one of these two diseases. The first picture I have of Dylan is Below as well as others.

Now you’ve seen what can happen to a Deer or other animal if they contract Wasting Disease or Mange. This poor girl was very fortunate and made it through the Winter. Since she was probably a late deer being born and may have even lost her Mama for all we know.
All I know is some of her sores look to have healed. Anyhow, she knows where to get her food and knows how to survive.
My Sunday Selfie is of a caricature. More accurately, my caricature selfie comes from a book series I’ve read and loved. The author is Amorette Anderson. The cat in the book’s name is Turkey. Below is the selfie of Turkey in his glasses.
Welcome everyone and we hope you’re having a good weekend. For all we know your weekend might be over. Anyhow, we were invited to Cooper Murphy’s Gotcha Day today. We hope you’ll pop on over to help Cooper Murphy celebrate. To do so go to The Cat On The Head .
Now for our Card to Cooper Murphy. You can see it below.
The pictures used to make this Gotcha Day card are below. Angel Tigger helped make this card. She’s the beautiful Tabby Cat in the picture on the bed with the stuffed cat and stuffed polar bear.
We are joining The Cat On My Head for Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

No I didn’t get a new cat. The exact opposite actually. You see the cat you see to the left has a story to tell. I’m happy to say this story has a happy ending. This little kitty’s story all starts when she is walking along side of the road. How this cat there I don’t know. That will probably always remain a mystery. Then as fate would have it, two highschool graduates(my niece and her friend) were on their way home when my niece saw something moving. They stopped the car and found this kitten who could just barely hold its head up and they both knew they had to do something. They automatically ‘scooped’ the kitten up and took her to my niece’s house.
As it turns out the next step was to get this kitten to the vet and find out what’s wrong with it. Since my niece is an intern at a veterinarian clinic she took the kitten there and found out this dear little kitten was just full of fleas and other things I’m not sure of. Because there were so many fleas they had to get rid of the blankets they used. The vet took care of this kitten and the kitten is doing better.
When my niece and her family took the kitten in temporarily they thought it was a she and so they called it a she for the longest time. Then just the other day my niece took her to the vets and the workers just loved her but then found out it wasn’t a she but a he. Well at least the name they gave the kitten fits both male or female. They named the kitten Smalls because he was so tiny. I’m happy and pleased to say Smalls is eating better and gaining weight.
Now the next things on the list is to get him neutered when he’s the right age and find someone to take him. Since the vet has estimated the age of the kitten at 10-14 weeks old, he has to be older to get neutered. However, finding someone to take this kitten was easier than anyone thought it would be. Yes that means he has his furever home. Yeah!!
Something to remember though even though this kitten was very fortunate and found a furever home quickly this doesn’t happen often. I hope other cats and other animals find their furever home soon.
Below is a slideshow of Small’s selfies.
Sticking with the story about Smalls the kitten, I decided to do my Sparks relating to problems.
We all have problems some worse than others. However some people just can’t see the positive side. Actually what we need to find out for ourselves is problems are just stepping-stones to our real destination. Always look on the positive side no matter how small it may seem. Like this kitten it kept moving with just a flicker of hope. That flicker of hope got the kitten a furever home.
So remember when your down in the dumps don’t Mope or have a pity party for yourself instead celebrate the fact you’re still alive and able. Another thing to remember is if a flicker of hope got a kitten a home imagine what a little bit of hope can get us. Look on the positive side and you will see the silver lining.
I got this picture of what looks like a squirrel looking into the trail camera. I showed it to both Mom and Dad and got two different opinions. What a surprise. Mom agrees with me it’s a squirrel and dad doesn’t agree it’s a squirrel. What do you think? I personally think it’s a cool picture either way. I would sure love to know what you think. Please let me by putting your opinion in the comment section or by using the contact form provided below. Below is the Picture. **Please Note that the time is 9:37 PM Eastern Time*. Odd Hah?
When I was hunting for birthday cards I came across this picture of my dog Shandar who was a female Alaskan Malamute, Runt of her litter and 125 pounds of loving. Snowball was my female cat who was beautiful, fluffy and 18 pounds of loving. They both have passed over the Rainbow Bridge. When I found this picture I thought it would be perfect for Sunday Selfie.
The above selfie is of Daisy Mae and I getting our picture taken. Please note the surprised look on my face which is due to Daisy Mae kicking and clawing me because she didn’t want her picture taken. Enjoy our Sunday Selfie.
