HER ROYAL GRUMPINESS

by Janet Blue on January 29, 2017

Sunday Selfies: Week #129

I was sitting next to Mom this afternoon staring at her as is my wont. I do this as it creeps her out, especially when she wakes up in the middle of the night and I am doing it. So much fun!

Anyhoo, I was forced into taking a selfie and hosting this week’s blog hop.

Her Royal Grumpiness hosts Sunday SelfiesAs you can see, I was not amused. But then, not much amuses me. I’ll be 18 next month, and I figure I’ve earned the right to do what I want when I want and taking selfies is not one of those things. In all honesty, I always have done exactly as I’ve wanted. I am a calico, after all. You should feel delighted that I didn’t grace you with my malevolent stink-eye. As you can imagine, I am quite proficient at it after nearly 18 years of practice!

Now that I’ve showed you my grumpy puss, it’s time for you to share your mug with us. I do expect most of you will appear happier than I do.

If you’re new to Sunday Selfies, this is a blog hop. You can use the link below to add your selfie to the hop. And, if you want the hop to appear on your blog, the code for that also is below. And to keep me from getting even grumpier, could you please display our badge or link back to The Cat on My Head.

Thank you very much. I look forward to seeing all your smiling faces. (I may be grumpy, but I am always sometimes polite.)

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia

Easy, my thoughts are looking for the answer and oh the cat is so lovely. Kindly tell me what kind of cat is that?

Oh, Lily Olivia, do you stare at your Mom using that look? ‘Cause we think we’d like to borrow that one for a while.

Couldn’t get the hop page to work and it has been a long time since this happened. Could not click ‘back to blog’ and get back to blog. Will try again. Love the Grumpy!!!

You look amazing your Royal Grumpiness. I hope I will get your youthful features when I am your age :) I haven’t had time to do my Selfie yesterday, Granny and Grandpaw were visiting my siblings, they live about 150 miles from here, and Granny didn’t gave me purrmission to go on her laptop after the keyboard crashed….no, no, it wasn’t me! Anyway, I insisted to participate today, so hope you don’t mind it is my Caturday post for a change, KittiesBlue. Pawkisses for a Happy Day and one extra for you, Lily Olivia :) <3

Your grumpiness is so purrty, though! Its just a facade for inner beauty, because Calicos are really lovely kitties…at least we think so! And we did not at all know (or remember), that you are 18! Wowee! That makes us feel really young at 12, MOL!
Thanks for showing us your selfie today, Lily Olivia!

I love that little face of yours, grumpy or no. I’ll bet you have a sweet heart beneath that sour exterior. I find that’s the case with most sassy calicos!

I think that’s pretty cool that you just sit and STARE at your Mom until she notices you……are you reading her mind? Sending her a psychic message? Whatever you’re doing, I think you’re a pretty cat AND at your age, if you want to stare – go ahead!!

Hugs, Angel Sammy
