Sunday Selfie by Jemma

Many thanks to  The Cat on My Head  for hosting Sunday Selfies!

Hi, I’m Jemma. I think we might have met before. I’m here with my Mom, Uncle Jeff’s sister. Me and my Mom, we live in Illinois. We’re here in Tennessee so my Mom can visit her brother and also go to her conference in a city called Nashville. She’s been gone overnight, at least 87 hours, and I’ve been scared.

I have my own room, and I stayed in it all day yesterday, guarding my space, and all night too. Today I’m trying to be braver. Riley scares me. Chia kinda scares me. Xena kinda scares me, too. I like Lucy. I growled at Aunt Amy every time she came in “my” room, even when she brought me peace offerings and sat on the floor with me. This morning she lifted her lip and growled back. That scared me, too, but now I at least know who’s boss. So I finally decided to try to trust her. After all, someone has to feed me and take me outside, right? And I don’t know if my Mom is ever coming back. So I’m outa my room and trying harder to fit in. Maybe I’ll see y’all again soon, if I’m gonna be living here. (Do you like how I used the Southern “y’all?” I’m trying.)

*little wags* Jemma

From Aunt Amy: Jemma’s Mom will be back later this afternoon.

  1. We should try that growling back stuff witth Dalton, when he decides to give his pawppy the bsarking/growling business.

    Dalton: You’ll be fine, you are homesick I think. I am still scared of almost everything here even though I have been here 5 years, now. My home wasn’t anything to be homesick about…and I came to this great one after running loose in Texas after that big hurricane, Harvey. You are a beauty though!

    1. Well, Riley was laying near the supper table and he didn’t know I was under Uncle Jeff’s chair. I came out on the side where he doesn’t see so good and I thought he was going to attack me! Now I don’t trust him. He got reprimanded, but still… Jemma

  4. Gemma bless your little Tuxie heart. I kinda giggled sorry not at you but with Amy. Madi did not (no clue why) like her human sister. Maybe because she smelled other cats. Everytime they passed each other Madi had a hissing fit. Her human sister laughed at her. Finally one day human Sister hissed back and put her hands up like claws. That was the end of Madi’s hissing fits.
    Hugs Cecilia
