This is our Sunday Selfie Ginger Jack.  He suffers from solar eczema during the summer months but we do our best to make sure his nose is protected. He loves to be outside when the weather is warm.

We learned a trick from a lady in a shop who sold us some protective cream. She suggested putting the cream on Jack’s nose, then giving him something to eat so he ignores the cream long enough for some to sink in. It works a bit but we still worry and keep an eye on his nose!

Thank you for the chance to meet everyone. This blog hop is the gift of our friends The Cat on My Head.

Thank you also for your kind words about Christopher, Mum’s brother.

    I love the idea of getting a treat right after something unpleasant. Sounds like it works too!

    That does sound like a good idea, a treat after something they might wipe or lick off. That is one red nose, you poor thing. Glad the Mom is taking such good care of you.

    I’ve never heard of that condition before! Poor little kitty. That red nose makes my heart hurt a little bit. Hoping he’ll let that cream do its magic!

    Ginger Jack is a sweet boy. My mum used to get solar eczema on her hands whenever she went on holiday. She says that luckily it has got less and less over the years and only occasionally gets it now.

    Jack, you are a cute one! I wonder if gingers are susceptible to this condition. Although Annie doesn’t have it, she does have freckles on her nose and lips. Well, this boy sure take an adorable selfie!
