Sunday Selfies: Week #98

Our humans are traveling home from BlogPaws today, and we will be glad to see them. Unfortunately, Chris says that the party we’ve been rockin’is over! That totally sucks…no more free-feeding of treats and wallowing in and snorfeling of catnip all day. Pffft!

We know that Mom will be blogging about and sharing more photos from the BlogPaws Conference for at least a few more days, but finally some of us other than Astrid and Sampson and their wedding party will get the opportunity to be featured on OUR blog.

As you have seen from today’s title, today’s selfie also comes from BlogPaws.


Mom Janet and Mom Emily share a BlogPaws Conference Sunday Selfie with Cuddle Clone, Sampy.


At least our mom and Mom Emily are accompanied by a kitty…that’s Sampson’s Cuddle Clone, which was able to attend the conference and have his photo taken with lots of celebrities (not the moms) and brand promoters. Check out Instagram at kittycatchronicles for lots more photos of him.

Cat4-001As always, we are really looking forward to seeing your selfies this week. We may not be able to visit too many of you this Sunday, so please try to visit each other if you have the opportunity. Blog hops are for making new friends and contacts. We love all the blogs we have discovered and friends we have made by hosting this hop.

The link to add your blog post to the hop is below as is the code for adding the hop to your blog. I have heard from our friend Ann at Zoolatry that this is no longer working for her. If you are having the same problem, we apologize. She says, “Apparently, the recent inability to include your Mr. Linky on our blogs may have something to do with google blogspot switching from HTTP to HTTPS. ”

Even if you cannot add the hop, to your blog, please don’t let that stop you from adding the link to your selfie post. Many thanks, dear friends.

 Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

We are entering Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art Blog Hop with an arty rendition of a photo of the bridal party and guests from Astrid’s and Sampson’s BlogPaws wedding. The original photo was shared on yesterday’s post and can be seen by clicking on the link at the bottom this page.


Arty rendition of Astrid's and Sampson's wedding created in Dreamscope using the Petals effect.


To create today’s art, I used the petals effect from Dreamscope and a frame from PhotoFaceFun. Even though Astrid looks a bit like a mummy due to her veil, I liked the colors and so decided to stick with this effect.

 Sunday Selfie’s Blog Hop

Cat4-001We’ll be back tomorrow for week #98 of our blog hop. I’ll be posting from BlogPaws and will have a special selfie from the conference. Hope you’ll take the opportunity to not only join in but also to encourage your friends to hop along with Kitties Blue.

I’ll try my best to go live at the usual post time of 12:01 a.m. EDT. With Phoenix being three hours behind with reference to east coast time, I may be posting a bit later. Please don’t panic if the link is not available at the usual time. Just don’t forget to check back later and join us when you have the opportunity. The link always remains open for five days. Many thanks and see you tomorrow.

The humans are in Arizona whooping it up at the BlogPaws Conference, and so we are letting Lily take over the blog today. Well…that’s not exactly how it went. Lily demanded as the eldest that she be given first crack at writing a poem for Sammy’s (onespoiledcat) new weekly feature, Thoroughly Poetic Thursday. As Lily […]

Several Words from Astrid on Wednesday     Here I am watching out the door as flat Astrid leaves for the BlogPaws Conference where she and Sampy’s (Kitty Cat Chronicles) flat self will be marrying. I think it is totally bogus that the two of us don’t get to go in the furs and celebrate […]

Do your catnip plants look like this?     Or do they look like this?     If your nip looks like the sad little plant above, you may have a nip-addicted cat at your house. Or you may have a human nip thief. This is a most serious situation. Why in the world would […]
