Sunday Selfies: Week #231

We Kitties Blue are happy when Mom does not try to coerce one of us into taking a selfie for our Sunday Selfies blog hop. Even so, we weren’t too pleased with Mom’s selection for a guest selfie.


squirrel selfie


This is one of four pudgy squirrels that kept challenging us to staring contests. As it was super cold and snowy today, we mostly stayed inside with quick visits to the catio. But we didn’t give up our bird and squirrel TV. We just sat at the kitchen window to watch.

This squirrel was unusually timid. Usually they run from the pergola, across the window sill to the deck railing and the bird feeder. This guy didn’t seem to realize that a window protected it from us. We told him if he was going to hang around, he could take the selfie for today.

Let’s Hop

We’ll mostly be napping today, but we still want to see your selfies, so please join us or share a guest on the hop.

Here are those tips our mom always makes us post. Sorry but she is a nag.

  • 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.

Thanks for hopping over to see us.

Purrs and paw-pats, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

That looks like a very well-fed squirrel.

Spitty the Kitty January 13, 2019 at 10:56 pm

That skwerl *is* a little chonk! But say, does he have a little disability there? Or just holding one of his little arms in a funny way? Whichever, we think he must be able to still run pretty fast, fast enough to escape the likes of you all, or at least your outside brethren! He’s actually pretty cute! XOXOXO to You-Know-Who

Since mommy quit feeding the birdies because of the city of squirrels and the herds of deer who ate it as fast as she could get it put, we haven’t have squirrel or deer TV. I may find me another mommy!

Hmmm, we think we have seen that fatty around here too. He and his pals like to hide their walnuts in our lawn. Mom gets mad when we find them because she says we might break our teeth gnawing on those nuts.

Good work getting the squirrel to do the selfie. We have lots of squirrels in our woods, but they learned not to come into the garden when Eric and Flynn were here.

Meow, meow!!!! You have a TIMID squirrel?!?!?! I don’t have any like that here, but then your squirrels look different from mine…. Mine our reddish with black tails – I see them every year when they invade my oak tree and steal the acorns. Mine are dreadful creatures, but yours looks sort of pretty…. it certainly has a fluffy tail.

We have a squirrel who has started eating at our bird feeder. Mom buys safflower seed because squirrels are not supposed to like it. Nobody told this guy. She taunts us from the window.

We never see squirrels here, but Mummy has told Us about them, how plentiful they were in the parks in London, where She grew up. This one is a beauty.

Oh what a pleasingly plump squirrel visitor! I love them – they like to torment me when I’m outside but I also know how FAST they are so even if I tried to chase one, they would beat me to the nearest tree and UP they go! Sure are fun to watch though. Happy Sunday to everyone there including Mr. Pudgy Squirrel…..

Hugs, Teddy

In the spirit of the selfies I have to say that she does look a very presentable guest selfie, and all wrapped up warm for the winter, too. I just hopes they’ve not lost all their nuts!

That’s a very cute squirrel. If the others look like him, you kitties have some GREAT Bird and Squirrel TV there. 🙂

Thank you for hosting, sweet pals. Big hugs!
