Sunday Selfies: Week #250

I know I fooled many of you with my snoozy photo on Friday into thinking I am a sweet girl. And I am…to our humans.

Today, however, after a few weeks of relative quiet co-existence, Astrid and I had a bit of a dust-up. I hadn’t puffed up my tail really big in a long time, and I have to say, “It felt great!” Mom is afraid this will now cause Astrid to retreat back into herself. I certainly hope so. She’s been taking too many liberties, like coming upstairs in the mornings and snuggling with Mom in the bed. And she’s been spending lots of time on the catio. I just needed to put her in her place.

Mom got really mad at me, and so she is forcing me to do the selfie today. I did refuse to look at the camera when I snapped this. And I do look a bit as if I have been chastised. Since I can’t hear what Mom is saying, I can imagine anything I like. I am fairly certain, however, that she said, “Misty May, you are the most beautiful, smart and wonderful cat in the world,”


Sunday Selfies - Misty May



I’m not the only one of us who has been misbehaving. Our two Cat Scouts, Mau and Cooper Murphy, have been getting after each other. They usually have a wrasslin’ match before meals, but the last few days, they have escalated into snaring and neck biting. Mom is not certain what is causing the discord. It could be due to our dad being out of town. Mom, however, thinks its the heat and humidity. She knows the oppressiveness of it is making her grumpy. 

As I dictate this, we are having a huge thunderstorm with heavy rain. Here’s hoping that knocks down some of the humidity.

Let’s Hop

Now that I have shared my selfie, it is time for you to show off just how precious and adorable you are.

To prevent Mom from getting any more miffed at me than she already is, I am posting those hopping tips for any newcomers.

  • The link to add your selfie to the hop is below.
  • You also will find below the code to use if you’d like the hop to appear on your blog.
  • Posting on Sundays is not necessary to join.
  • You do not need to be a cat to enter. All anipals are welcome regardless of species.
  • The hop remains open for entries through Thursday midnight.

Have a terrific easy Sunday and holiday weekend.

Purrs and paw-pats, Misty May

Caturday Art

I tried to catch a photo of our adventurous youngsters (Sawyer and Cooper Murphy) on the catio when I saw this surprising sight—Cooper Murphy on the top perch. He normally does not venture up that far, as the perch is smaller and narrower than the others. It seems he’s learned some new moves from Sawyer.

Unfortunately, by not putting on the flash, the photo was back-lit to the extent that Sawyer (looking up at Cooper Murphy) and Coop came out as silhouettes. Rather than deleting the photo, I decided to use it for today’s Caturday Art.

I used Painnt to create the art, and ended up with two versions of the same photo. I was unable to decide which I liked best, so I am sharing both.


Caturday Art


This first version was created with an effect called Bacteria. The frame, also from Painnt, is named, Patinated.


Caturday Art


For this second version, I used the Butterfly Wings effect. I used Picasa to add the frame.

Cooper Murphy and Sawyer would like to know which version you like best.

The boys are joining the Caturday Art blog hop hosted by Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty. If you’d like to create some art and join the hop, click on the badge at the right.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

We know this is a three-day weekend and many of you will be celebrating with family and friends, but we’ll still be looking for you on the blog hop. If you get those selfies taken now, you’ll have all day tomorrow to take your easy as well as have some fun. Looking forward to seeing your sweet and smiling faces.

Sunday Selfies: Week #249 I was sitting on Mom’s lap a couple of days ago, and she convinced me to take a selfie. I took several and this was the best; though, it’s a bit blurry and I cut the photo off too close to my chin.     I am continuing with the orange […]
