Sunday Selfies: Week #60




I am not certain why we are having so much togetherness at our house lately. I can only surmise it is the constant gloomy and rainy days. This week features another two-fur photo, featuring Mauricio (again) and Astrid. Most of the girls like Mauricio and will try to get next to him, but Astrid could be classified as a stalker. She has a very hard time leaving him alone. Astrid snapped this photo when they were both crammed into their dad’s lap. (She apologizes for its blurriness.) There’s barely room for Mauricio by himself, but she’ll insist on trying to join him. These sessions usually don’t last very long.

Last week’s Sunday Selfies Blog Hop had 57 entrants not counting our own. By Monday afternoon the kitties had visited and commented on the 54 blogs of those who had entered by that time. I think this is a new record for us. It only happened because of the incessant rain. I have been unable to bike or swim. That frees up a few hours everyday. I must apologize up front that the kitties and I will not be able to do that this week. I have something EXTREMELY important happening on Monday that I must prepare for today and on Monday morning.

We had two unusual entrants in last week’s hop: a bee (Kjelle Bus aka Charlie Rascal) and an ibis (PepiSmartDog). The kitties and I are excited to see this week’s entries and what unusual critters stop on by.

The word we coined last week, “two-fur” was picked up and used by some of our entrants, which was sort of exciting. We don’t expect it to gain the widespread usage that Nissy‘s MOUSES did, but it was fun to see it leave our blog and show up on others.

So that’s enough blather for today. You probably are going to look at the photos only anyway. To add one of your own, click on the link below. You all know the drill: Use the code below to have the hop appear on your blog. If you do, out of courtesy to us, please link back to The Cat on My Head and/or display our badge. And if you have any trouble linking let me know in a comment, and I will enter the link for you.

Thanks for being our friends, followers and supporters.

A double two-fur is even more awesome. We rarely have two cats in one place in our home.

Love the frame on that photo. And I know what you mean about cuddlers living with loners. I have some of that going on here, too. Lucy may never make that cuddle happen, but she keeps on trying!

We knew our rain needed to go somewhere but we are saddened to hear it has gone to you!! 🙁 Now what are you planning that is so important? You have our full attention! 🙂
Sweet that Astrid loves Mauricio so much! We guess he mustn’t be that much of a pest 😉 Love and hugs to your Mama from all of us 🙂

Dolly the Doxie October 5, 2015 at 2:25 pm

A stalker huh? Is that what my kitty brofur is because he’s in MY bed all the time! Mom even caught us almost touching. Nice selfie too. Love Dolly PeeS: we didn’t get to visit anyone yesterday because of our outing but will try to visit everyone today.

Sampy sure wishes he were the one cuddled up to Astrid in that photo! Though he must admit that she and Mauricio make an adorable brother/sister pair 🙂 We are so tired of the rain… it’s been raining for a week and a half now! Mr. Sun, please come out soon!!!
Sampy sends a kiss to Astrid for every drop of rain that has fallen ever, and we all send lots of love and hugs!

Gee, I didn’t know about the two-fur thing, it just happened with us! Great kitty minds think alike. Today we featured Derby, but the pic on the blog isn’t the one on your link. The original one was too large. Oh well. Still Sweet Derby’s face.

Astrid reminds me of our late cat Concha, in coloring and personality as well! Concha was also a stalker, and she had to be close to everyone! She had this wet nose she would have to rub on us as well!
Sorry to hear you’re getting all of that awful rain, hope it lets up very soon.

Sammy October 4, 2015 at 5:35 am

The “togetherness” we’ve had around here consists of Sam wanting to spend every second possibleon my lap! Other than that, I’m content to let HIM be the star of his selfies……after all, he is the star of the show around here!

Hugs and Happy WET Sunday!

Your human did a pretty awesome job last week helping you visit all the selfie takers! I guess maybe she DOES deserve a little break this time around!

Have a wonderful week and thanks for hosting! 🙂

We’re loving these two-fur selfies, dear pals. Yes, it must be because of the dreary weather. A cuddle or snuggle goes a long way to warming one’s heart, no? 🙂

Thank you for hosting, and good luck to Mom Janet with that important stuff on Monday!
