Sunday Selfies: Week #259



This selfie was definitely not my idea! On Thursday I lost almost all my furs. I still have my floofy tail as well as noggin and footie furs, but that is it! The old lady who lives at our house says that I feel like velvet when she pets me. If she wanted to stroke velvet, she should have gone to Joanne’s.

This is the second summer this assault has been purrpetrated by vet tech, Heather, at the behest of my humans. That’s right…Humans! No Mom and Dad for them. They don’t deserve those titles.

You probably are wondering why this heinous crime was committed. Well, I love to be brushed and jump up on the bathroom bench as my signal for brushies. There are certain areas of my body, however, that are off limits, and if someone gets too close, I bite…HARD! You know what that means: I get snarls and mats. So off come my gorgeous, long furs.

I tried to avoid showing too much of my nekkidness. After all, we do try to maintain a PG rating for our posts.

I did make one demand before agreeing to do this photo. The female human had to remove the freckle from my right eye with her photo magic. It makes me self-conscious, as it has gotten quite large. Not to worry, I can see just fine.

Anyhoo, I have rambled on for far too long. This is cutting into nap time.

Time to Hop

If you are joining our blog hop (please do), here are those tips that same female human insists we post almost every 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.

If you are purrticipating for the first time, welcome! We are delighted to meet you and hope you will return often. And for all our longtime friends and purrticipants: We love you!

Send Some Love

Before I leave you for my “easy,” Kitties Blue and I have two special requests.

If you follow the marvelous Marv, you know that he hadn’t posted in quite a while. Lots of cwappy things have turned his life, as well as his housemate Ninja, his dad and Mom Barb’s lives all topsy-turvy. Please click on the badge below and pop over with some words of encouragement.


Another friend, the lovely Zoey from Zoolatry, is not well and could use an abundance of prayers, purrs and POTP. Click the badge below to visit Zoey and her mom and leave them good thoughts and vibes.

Purrs and paw-pats, Giulietta

Well, I can’t say that I’ve ever gotten my furrs shaved, but I can imagine that it feels kinda funny. Hopefully your furrs grow back fast so you don’t have to be neckid for very long. Hugs.

I could say that your mom and dad do this for your own good, but you don’t care about that. You’re a cat and you only care about what you want or need. It’s all good.

Have a purrfect Sunday Selfies. My best to your peeps. ♥

Don’t worry on your nude picture I see nothing I swear ! Making nude photos is very fashionable maybe you will become a famous actress ? and if you have the same heat wave as we have, Rosie and Arthur would even be jaleous ! They wish they had a zip to take their fur off !

Poor Guiletta, you’ll get used to the short furs and be strutting around proud and happy in no time!

:Giulietta dear furiend, you look like a lioness! Very classy. As per biting, I bite hard too – there is no reason for vet techs to take my temperature. None at all!!! I am proud to say that after I bit through that metal glove, they have shown me much more respect.

Mom has given a bit of thought to me getting my pantaloons shaved down. She’s just mad, as I am, at the vets office because of how things went the last two times there…so she’s still thinking.


Athena July 28, 2019 at 6:21 am

You look beautiful!

Enjoy your nap 🙂

Giulietta you still look beautiful with your poodle cut (oops – did I say POODLE?!) – I mean your “Summer Do”. Just think – all your other kitty family members will be hot and sticky and you’ll be cool, calm, and beautiful all summer long. Happy Sunday!

Hugs, Teddy

For some reason, humans don’t like getting bitten when they are brushing a kitty’s fur! Fortunately, I don’t do that. I would not want to go through what you do, Giulietta!

Girls! I figured out a way for anyone who has issues with commenting to try! If you auto crop, and upload a photo from your computer it seems to work for us!

Much love to you Giulietta, you will be fine, especially with the current warms all over the USA. No fur is the latest trend for the cat of fashion.

Huges to all, and gentle hugs to Sawyer and send our love.

Just the right modesty level for a lady who needs to stay cool, look cool, and yet maintain the gorgeous looks and loving appearance that woos the boys 😉 If I had ANY fur off I would freeze, MOL


The J-Cats July 28, 2019 at 12:33 am

You look beautiful all the same. Our human has her own fur cut furry short in summer because of the heat. We can’t think why – it isn’t as if She has all that much to begin with (mol)!
But to do that to an innocent, unsuspecting kitty – that’s just not right!

Sorry your furs got stolen like that, Giulietta. That’s just not right! But you DO look nice and cool, and mat and snarl free.

Meows, purrs, hugs and MOLs are greatly appreciated. Please no hissing, spitting or scratching unless you want one of us to whap you!
