Sunday Selfies: Week #65

I made the mistake of spending time hanging out with Mom yesterday afternoon. As a result, I was forced into taking these selfies. I refused to look at the screen on the phone while I was doing it. I also had a ceiling light right above my head, which made me look fuzzy and overlit. Why any human would think these are worthy of flying around the internet, I don’t know. What I do know is that Mom usually gets her way in these things!


C.J, takes center stage for Sunday Selfies Blog Hop


Last week we hd a total of 50 entrants including ourselves and another unique entry for PepiSmartDog. If you didn’t visit their post, please do so now to see the magnificent swans. You won’t regret taking the time to do so. Also, please try to stop by and say “hi” to Dolly the Doxie. According to her nobody has been hopping over to visit. We know everyone is busy. It is often hard just to get posts written much less visit our friends. But we hope that those of you joining us will make an attempt to visit at least a few of your fellow hoppers. You never know what will happen. You just might make a friend for life.

Cat4-001If you’d like to have the hop post on your blog, the code is below. And here’s our badge for you to display on your post. If you have any problem linking up, just let us know in a comment. Mom will enter your link for you.

Last but not least…we are furry late getting here…meowmy/growlmy is back, but bogged down with many chores. We are fine, and we survived ‘Jail’…

We are trying to get something up fur this selfie hop, then we hope to be back fur the next one, but of course who knows as meowmy will be working…
Your selfies are wonderfur, Calista Jo. You have lovely eyes!

(We went to Dolly’s blog, but her blog keeps telling us we have an invalid security token???
Anyways we did make a comment there, but maybe that is why not to many are leaving their woofs or mews there.)

Calista Jo, you look gorgeous on your photos. Zorro is all swooned ! Purrs

Nerissa's Life November 9, 2015 at 10:22 pm

Forced into taking selfies? FORCED? That like forced labour or something. Hmmm… The price one pays for being adorable, for sure. MOUSES!


BeadedTail November 9, 2015 at 7:41 pm

Don’t moms know when it’s time to put that flashy beast away? *sigh* You do look very cute though!

Jean Dion November 9, 2015 at 5:24 pm

Hee hee. I love it when kitties won’t participate with the camera! Mine put their paws down about it from time to time, too. I think they want a bigger slice of the profits!

Harvey Button November 9, 2015 at 1:18 pm

We think you look pretty good, we like the photo arrangement a lot – we need to do stuff like that!

Raven November 8, 2015 at 10:38 pm

You do look a bit disinterested in your selfie this week. Maybe next week you’ll be wanting to ham it up a little more.

Maxwell, Faraday & Allie November 8, 2015 at 9:49 pm

we rushed right over and posted on Dollie’s blog!! We did! (uh, we haven’t gotten our mom to stop working long enough to visit anyone else, but she’s planning to do it tomorrow, PROMISE!!)

Melissa, Mudpie & Angel Truffles November 8, 2015 at 7:43 pm

Selfies aren’t supposed to be purr-fect, they’re supposed to be fun, and yours are pawsome!

Spitty the Kitty November 8, 2015 at 5:20 pm

Well, yes, it *was* generous of me to give Summer a selfie space cause her Human evidently didn’t let her do her own, but really, would Spitty not have his own Selfie??? Ha ha ha–given his track record, that answer might easily be yes, but today he has claimed his blog post for his own self(ie)!!

Sherri Ellen DeJonge November 8, 2015 at 2:17 pm

My hopeless mom-person have been hopelessly busy now again both with work and plessure.
I sure hope she makes that up for us soon !!


Austin Towers November 8, 2015 at 1:22 pm

Calista Jo, however reluctant you were to pose, you certainly take good selfies!! Great to see you :))))) xxxxx

Sxanuxa November 8, 2015 at 12:32 pm

Calista Jo, mes hardly ever looks at the camera either, or mes closes my eyes! Mes thinks your shots came out purrfect and is not that glow above your head a halo?

Gracie November 8, 2015 at 12:28 pm

Glad you spent time with the mom you have some really nice selfies there.

Bailey November 8, 2015 at 12:06 pm

CJ for reluctant selfies they’re absolutely pawesome! I hopped into my dads suitcase this week. It’s been hectic here this week. Sending you all purrs and Bisous.

It’s hard to stop the human who gives out the foodies from doing what she wants!!
Happy Selfie Sunday Smileys!

Savannah's Paw Tracks November 8, 2015 at 11:26 am

Hey, Guys…. If the winners of the giveaway WOMEN WHO STILL LOVE CATS TOO MUCH want me to sign the book to someone for Christmas, let us know, and I can send you a signed, personalized book plate.

Thanks again, and good luck.

Timmy Tomcat November 8, 2015 at 10:44 am

Calista Jo you look really purrty today dear furend. I do agree that the photo snapping by pawrents really can get out of paw, er, hand… Snap, snap snapping all day long and some unflattering ones at that. We should demand editing rights! We will visit Pepi and Dolly to meow hello

Kitty Cat Chronicles November 8, 2015 at 9:03 am

CJ, you look so adorable in those photos! The mom says she just wants to plant a kiss on your cute little head! Sampy says that he wants to play kisses on Astrid’s head too. He sends her 2039485720394852039485 kisses on her sweet little head, with just as many nuzzles, hugs, and purrs. We all send lots of love!

The Island Cats November 8, 2015 at 8:56 am

You took a great selfie, Calista Jo, even if you really didn’t want to.

Lola and Lexy November 8, 2015 at 8:47 am

Calista Jo, the light only makes you look more pretty. We love the collage. We’re very happy to be joining the blog hop again this week, and we’re going to visit Dolly!

Brian November 8, 2015 at 8:42 am

Those really are great selfies!

Ellen Pilch November 8, 2015 at 8:41 am

Lovely selfies. We’ll bet our entry this week is a unique one!!!

Annie November 8, 2015 at 8:08 am

Calista Jo, you’re so pretty that it’s easy to see why your mom insisted you do some selfies this week! Nevertheless, you’re right that moms always get their own way when it comes to pictures. Thanks for hosting this fun hop!

Earl Lover November 8, 2015 at 8:04 am

Happy Sunday! Where is this week’s linky list?

Earl Lover November 8, 2015 at 8:15 am

Never mind! It is here.

Jan K November 8, 2015 at 7:54 am

We love the photos! Selfies are not about quality, they are about fun! 🙂

It is hard to get around and visit all of our friends, we try to do our best (and Dolly is one of our good friends so we usually get there). But you are right, we have made some wonderful new friends through this hop, so it is worth visiting everyone we can!

We have that book, it is fun!!

Emma November 8, 2015 at 7:22 am

You look pretty decent. Some cats and dogs, for that matter, don’t like being photographed and that is alright too. Happy Sunday!

Sammy November 8, 2015 at 5:31 am

I think these are super duper selfies CJ! We have our selfie on our blog today and linked here but there’s no “hop link” to put our entry into?? We’ll check back later!

Love, Sammy

Little Binky and Granny November 8, 2015 at 4:12 am

Create With Joy November 8, 2015 at 2:22 am

Don’t know why Moms get so obsessed with taking pictures of us cats, Calista Jo. Sometimes she takes my photo so much it makes me cross and I refuse to cooperate too!
But every now and then I let her take a stunning photo of me because it brings her great joy!

Those Moms are PURRsistant with selfies, aren’t they? Yours is gorgeous nonetheless.

meowmeowmans November 8, 2015 at 12:05 am

Calista Jo, we think ANY picture of you is beautiful, so even though you’re not exactly happy about your selfies, we’re glad you hung out with Mom yesterday. 🙂

Hugs to you and your wonderful family. And thank you, as always, for hosting the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop!
