Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

 Firstly, thank you to everybody for your kind comments, prayers and support. I decided to go with the chemo and rang my support nurse last Friday. She said she would tell my oncologist and either he or his secretary would ring with a start date. She said it would most likely be within 2 weeks.

This post originally came from June 2009 and was a Doppelganger meme. It was started by Milo and Alfie, and Ferris from the Creek Cats had me as his doppelganger.

We thought we should start with me and Ferris to show how alike we are.

Ferris, The Creek Cats.

Then we found an old scanned photo of us with our sweet Kitty Yumbum.

Don't you think the three of us look like Grace, Audace and Ruse?

This is another scanned photo when we were two or three years old.

We don't know who these two cats are, but Gandalf and Grayson had seen them and told us about them.

Eric: I think Sunny and I look very alike too.
Audace again.

William's brother Russell. Mum nearly put me and Russell the wrong way around. Silly mum.
If anyone else wants to join in, we look forward to seeing your Doppelgangers.

I am joining  Athena, the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art.

I used Beauty at 50%, then Grey at 40%.

Illusion first at 45%, then Lily at 40%.

  1. Those were fun ones and pretty art too! Thanks for the update, we're thinking of you always and will be here to support you.

  2. What fun! Those are great pictures.

    We have a Doppelganger, too, our Link Linker the Stinker looks a lot like Ms. Ellen's Brody at 15 And Meowing.

    Thank you for linking the whole gang up with Feline Friday!

  3. We hold you in our paws and Mom's prayers and hope the chemo does well by you.

    We love those artified photos. The doppelganger post was a fun one to see.

  4. Dearest Jackie,
    You are brave for going with the chemo and soon you will start doing so.
    No doubt, with lots of virtual love and prayers you will manage!
    Your two Angel boys also will help you through.
    What lovely memories those scanned photos are. You have done exactly what I've done, digitalized our slides, photos and also did scan some photos.
    Amazing how cute Flynn sat upright like a cat–human!
    Was Kitty Yumbum another sibling? Such sweet photo.
    Eric also is sitting upright like a human.
    Big all around hugs,
    Mariette + Kitties

  5. Hugs and well wishes to get you started on your Chemo journey.

    Nice to see all the doppelgangers!
    I need to scan the non digital pics of so many things from before we had digital cameras. It would be a full time job for a good while, phew!!

  6. I've seen loads and loads of pussy~cat
    pics in my time, but, that one up the top
    there, of Flynn, has to be the very best,
    that is so, funny...Bless! :).

  7. Though these are all fabulous photos, dad is gaga over the artified trio. He mumbled through his coffee something about beautiful stark coloring, etc., etc. Fantastic Flashback, and our best to you, dear brave Jackie.

  8. What a beautiful pile of ginger sweeties! As I've mentioned, Ted sits upright frequently and we can't help but laugh - he does his tummy grooming in that position but then stays like that for several minutes after (giving us time to enjoy the pose). Love all the photos - just precious. We will be praying every minute of your treatment and we KNOW treatments can work so that's going to be our "mantra" for you....! Sending you tons of hugs.

    Love, Pam and Teddy too

  9. Those photos were such fun to see! I guess we all do have doppelgangers!

    You are and will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. I'm sending hugs and healing Light to you. ❤️🙏

  10. These were all great cat pictures to see, all this lovely Ginger and white. I just love cats and that's all there is to it.
    You are in my prayers when you start your chemo and that all will go very successful. You are a brave woman.

    I love it when cats sit like that!

  13. Angel Flynn OMCs I am so sorry but I giggled uncontrollably at your first photo.
    I don't think I remember seeing Yumbum..thank you for sharing
    Jackie thank you for the update on your treatment.
    You and Ivor...will have so many purrs and love flying across the pond.
    Hugs Cecilia

  14. Good Heavens, thank goodness personalities are different in each case, otherwise a human might get mixed up! And good luck with the chemo-therapy, Jackie. I know it will work well for you.

  15. Love that first pose, Flynn! This post is full of orangey goodness :)

  16. Thank you for the medical update - you are in my thoughts. Love the photos! Kitty Yumbum was sure a beauty. What beautiful artwork! Hope Mom and Dad are doing well. Until next time...Jean

  17. They did have a lot of lookalikes. My Angel Sammy looked a lot like them too. Beautiful art. Thank you for the puzzles. I will be praying for your chemo to go well. XO

  18. Wow, talk about "Flashback"! Seeing the 2 and 3 together so close was "wunnerful". We didn't even know about Yumbun! Somehow...

    Purrs about the chemo...

  19. Sending all the good purrs we've got!
    Wonderful matchy-matchy pics; look at those bellies.

  20. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Beautiful photos. I love all of them.

  21. Thanks for the update. We're continuing to send you pawsitive energy. :)

  22. Lovely photos of everyone. Thinking of you and sending our love and purrs xx

  23. Kitties Blue: This is such a super cool post. We loved all the various doppelgängers. The first two photos and the snuggle photos are our favorites. Mom says, “thanks” for the puzzles. She is sending lots of prayers, hugs and love. XOCK, angels Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta & Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer, Kizmet, Audrey & Raleigh

  24. This was such a wonderful memory of Eric and Flynn, and so many friends. Thank you so much for updating us, Jackie. We continue to send love and lots of purrs and prayers your way. XO

  25. What a lot of doppelgangers! The more of you, the merrier (mol).

    We are purring for you all the time, Ms. Jackie - Mummy too. We know you can do this!

  26. WoW! Look at all that orange loveliness! Our Mom is totally overcome! Queen Nellie is one lucky grrl cat to see those guys every day! We are sending loving and healing purrs to you Jackie. We are rooting for you! Keep being AWESOME! Love Marvelous Marv, Kozmo, Jo Jo, Cinnamon and Barb

  27. Meowww. can we be friends? Warm regards

  28. Oh seeing those precious boys. Just amazing.

    Thank you for your kind words of sympathy on the loss of my beloved Boo, it meant to much to me that you stopped by and helped us with your kind comfort.


  29. There's nothing in the world like your belly, Flynn!

  30. It can be very confusing as you all look rather similar to identify who is who!

  31. OMC they're really some look-a-likes...all of them, sweet Angels. We think that's really cute😻 Granny sees a lot of me, Peachy in Big Binky, and Stippie in Little Binky, not that we're so much look-a-likes, but we do exactly the same in behavior😸😸Healing Pawkisses continue for you effurry day, Jackie and for Ivor too🙏 🐾😽💞

  32. Good luck Jackie. I hope the treatment goes smoothly.
    Miss those two boys, I know they're watching over you.
