Sunday Selfies: Week 77


Misty May's one-eyed selfie


Misty May claimed that she didn’t need more than one eye open to take a good selfie. For a kitty who doesn’t do the selfie thing very often, I’ve got to admit she did a darn good job. She was resting her head on her dad’s knee when she snapped this.

If you haven’t entered our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, what are you waiting for? If you think it might be fun but continue to hesitate for one reason or another, check out the infographic below (used with permission from Mousebreath Magazine). Ninety percent of cats are taking selfies, which means you are in the minority. No cat wants that. So pick up your paw and push the button on your human’s cell phone and hop along with us. If you aren’t a cat, you can still enter. All anipals are always welcome.

Cat4-001Personally, we think tongue selfies are just fine, and we encourage them. What would selfies be without a great tongue shot from Crockett at Lone Star Cats.

The Island Cats January 31, 2016 at 6:54 pm

We think Misty May did a great selfie…even with one eye opened. 😉

Melissa, Mudpie & Angel Truffles January 31, 2016 at 6:32 pm

Selfies can be fun with *both* eyes closed, too!!!

Harvey Button and Marjorie January 31, 2016 at 5:41 pm

BJ Bangs January 31, 2016 at 12:32 pm

Deb Barnes January 31, 2016 at 11:01 am

Oh my catness! That infograph is purrfect! Purrs from Deb and the Zee/Zoey gang

Gracie January 31, 2016 at 10:26 am

Love the one eye shot. I would never thought to take a photo like that. Really cute.

Christy Paws January 31, 2016 at 10:23 am

That infographic is pretty cute but I say if you leave out all the things like tongues you take away some of the best characteristics of selfies. Your selfie is purrfect.

The Swiss Cats January 31, 2016 at 10:18 am

That’s a lovely selfie, Misty May ! The infographic made us smile, but we agree with you : we love tongue selfies ! Purrs

Annie January 31, 2016 at 10:04 am

Misty May, you’re so pretty, and I think it was good of you to open one eye. Sometimes, I don’t even do that! You look so lovely against that red blanket.

That infographic was funny, but we like tongue-out and hung over selfies. 🙂

Ellen Pilch January 31, 2016 at 9:20 am

She did a great job- so pretty. I love this infographic!

The Florida Furkids January 31, 2016 at 9:19 am

Very nice selfie and very good selfie tips!!!! We’re okay with showing our tongues….check out today’s selfie with Allie 🙂

Savannah's Paw Tracks January 31, 2016 at 9:18 am

I made it! Touch and go of Mom L could get ,y selfie posted. She was taking two very sick kittens to vet then trying to pry meds out of the hands of CVS pharmacy…they wanted a first and last name for the prescription…Mom L finally said THEY ARE CATS!

Timmy Tomcat January 31, 2016 at 9:02 am

Misty May we love your one eyed Selfie even if it is a bit outside suggested parameters.
It shows your cute flirtatious side and all cats love a flirty kitty, Mrowrr!
That Selfie Info from Mousebreath was soooooo cool. We go there evfurry chance we get to keep up with the news of Catdom.
Timmy and Furs

Jan K January 31, 2016 at 7:59 am

It’s fun, it’s easy, why wouldn’t every cat and dog want to do it? Great job, Misty May, it looks like you barely disturbed your nap to pull that one off! 🙂

Emma January 31, 2016 at 7:35 am

Kind of a Peek a Boo selfie I would say! Love the infographic. Very funny and informative!

Socks, Scylla, Fenris, Tuiren, YinYang & Chimera (ATCAD) January 31, 2016 at 7:11 am

I took time out of running an INTRUDER CAT off to take a selfie demonstrating how to look fearsome. I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for the great tips on taking a selfie. ~Scylla

Toby January 31, 2016 at 6:12 am

I love this infographic!!! Who says cats aren’t social!!! We rule social media!!! Very pretty selfie, by the way!

Little Binky and Granny January 31, 2016 at 5:09 am

That is purrfect one-eyed Selfie, Misty May. For someone who don’t do selfies regularly, you sure have skills 🙂
MOL…the tips are just brilliant, I have to work on them 😀
Double Pawkiss for a Great Sunday 🙂 <3

Sammy January 31, 2016 at 4:53 am

Well I like to break all the rules you know – so my selfie today is a sleepy one. I had a day full of naps yesterday so a “groggy” selfie was the best I could do! Happy Sunday. The infographic is so funny!

Love, Sammy

Flynn January 31, 2016 at 4:51 am

That is a sweet winky selfie, Misty May. That is a fun infographic.

Gattina January 31, 2016 at 3:36 am

When the Cat is Away January 31, 2016 at 1:41 am

Ha! We were also thinking “tongue selfies are fun!” And we love photobombs!

prancer pie January 31, 2016 at 1:27 am

It is a darn adorable wink, Misty May! Prettiest selfie we’ve seen today.
Have a super easy Sunday.

Emma and Buster January 31, 2016 at 12:21 am

Misty May are you winking at some particular mancat?

meowmeowmans January 31, 2016 at 12:06 am

Brilliant selfie, Misty May! We love that one-eye open action … so stylish!

The infographic totally made us MOL. Thanks for sharing. And thanks, as always for hosting and being such wonderful friends.


Katnip Lounge January 31, 2016 at 12:05 am
