MAU GRUDGINGLY TAKES OVER

Sunday Selfies: Week #133

The petretary and her sidekick (AKA Dad Tom) are still SICK! I was unfairly conscripted to take a selfie and write this post. I was having a delightful nap when I was rudely awakened to tend to these duties.

I told the petretary that if I had to do a selfie, it was “one and done” no matter how it turned out. So here it is!

 

Ma's Sunday Selfies

 

Harrumph! One little complaint about having to do a selfie and write this post, and I get my photo put in a frame surrounded by ginger cats. That’s just insulting! Not only does Mr. Cooper Murphy get more blog time than I do, but I also have to share my post with three ginger doppelgängers. Pffft!

Under the circumstances, this is going to be short. This is our weekly Sunday Selfies blog hop. The link is below for you to join us and share your selfie with your many admirers. If you are unable to hop on board today, the link remains open through Thursday. You also can grab the code and include the hop on your blog if you like. If you would be so kind to include our badge and/or link back to The Cat on My Head, the sickly petretary would be ever so grateful.

Caio & meow, Mau

So sorry to hear your people aren’t feeling well. I know there are some horrid bugs being passed amongst us humans this year. I hope they feel better soon. Get your bros and sisters together to help them feel better. You can take turns cuddling and purring them better! Works every time for me.

Aw, Mau, man. TWO sick Humans??? Bummer, Big Guy. I mean, ONE was bad enough. She was **completely useless**! In fact, the truth is she is STILL sort of outta commission. My box is not getting scooped like it should be, my meals are late, she doesn’t want to play with me–it’s BAD. And it’s been nearly two weeks! Man, I hope at least one of yours is functional pretty soon. You poor kids. Tsk. Tsk.

Mau, you look pawsome even if you are surrounded by all those Ginger cats. You need a different frame with kitties that look more like you for your next Selfie so you don’t feel slighted and surrounded by all those kitties you’d rather not be around. At Paws, we getting ready to pawty hard for Mardi Gras, and then settle in for some super-duper napping time

For being unwilling, you sure cut a handsome figure, Mau! SUPER-DUPER handsome, in fact! But you’re right … as gorgeous as those gingers are, it’s a bit insulting to be surrounded by them :)

Mau! How dashing you are! Maybe Cooper Murphy gets more blog time than you because he’s still a newbie and not purrfect at it like you, and so he needs the practice? Or maybe him getting more blog time gives you more rest and relaxation? Well, regardless, we think your selfie is purrfection! And we’re still sending well wishes to your mom and dad!

Sick peeps seems to be the in thing at the moment, suffice to say you have both have my utmost sympathy and get well wishes. Nice selfie, maybe when it’s Cooper Murphy’s turn you can photoshop your photo frame into, say, a TUX? And as it happens I have a gap in my schedule next week….
