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.


Sunday Selfies


I am continuing with the orange theme today, as we will be honoring and remembering Angel Crockett (Lone Star Cats). Before we do that her are those hopping tips.

Hopping Time

Here are those hopping tips we provide each week.

  • 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.
  • Please be so kind as to display our badge and/or link to The Cat on My Head.
  • Take the opportunity to visit some of the other hop-alongs and make some new friends or reconnect with some old ones.

Remembering Crockett


Sunday Selfies


If you don’t know, Crockett tragically and unexpectedly left his family and the blogosphere on Monday. Yesterday he was remembered with Wear Orange for Crockett and a special blog hop. Regardless, we always remember our faithful hoppers when they leave us for the Bridge. Crockett and the other members of his furry family are some of those Sunday Selfies hoppers we can count on to join us. His brofur, Travis, is the chatty spokes cat. Angelique is the floofy beauty and model. Crockett was the character. He always amused and entertained us with his big eyes and penchant for razzie selfies.

Crockett, you will be missed and always loved. We will carry you in our hearts, and we know you will be together with your family again.

Thanks for hopping over to see us. If you are new to our hop, WELCOME! Please come back each week.

Purrs and paw-pats, Astrid (with love and kisses for my Sampy)

Caturday Art

On Caturday we always participate in Athena Cat Goddess Wise KItty’s Caturday Art blog hop. This Caturday we also are participating in the Wear Orange for Crockett (Lone Star Cats) blog hop.  If you don’t know, Crockett passed away unexpectedly in an accident at home on Monday.

I’ve combined the two hops making some art using Cooper Murphy—who always wears
orange—as the subject of that art.


Wear Orange for Crockett


To create today’s art, I used the Folk Tiles effect with a warm filter from the Painnt app. I overlaid that with stars from piZap. Cooper Murphy was sitting in a reusable grocery bag on the kitchen island.

Wear Orange for Crockett









Cat Scouts Wear Orange

Crockett was not a Cat Scout; though, I know he would have made a terrific one. In order to support the Wear Orange Day, Scouts participating in the opening of the Wildcats troop greenhouse party tomorrow will be wearing orange t-shirts. Cooper Murphy and Mau are dressed in heir orange shirts to show their support.

Sunday Selfies Blog Hop Reminder

Astrid will be here tomorrow as your host for Sunday Selfies. We will be honoring and remembering Crockett tomorrow as well. He and his fursibs, Travis and Angelique, are regular participants in the hop. We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow when we pay or final respects to special kitty, Crockett.

Sparks     My frustration over the groaningly slow progress of the construction of our addition is what attracted me to this quote. Lately, I have been feeling as if I just want to go on vacation until it is complete. Add to that the frustration of Sawyer not eating (his food contains his meds) […]

Caturday Art I asked Mom if I could be the subject of our art today. That’s unusual, especially from me, but I have a really good reason. My sweet boy friend, Charles, sent me an e-mail with a terrific photo of his handsome self. I knew this post would be a great way to reciprocate. […]
