I asked Mom to count and see who has had more selfie posts, and it wasn’t me. I am quite perturbed about that. I have been featured quite regularly in the Caturday Art Blog Hop, but not in the Sunday Selfies. Caturday art is nice, but you don’t get to see my natural beauty in those creations. And I am beautiful. Of course, I don’t really need to tell you that. I am an extra special, tortilicious tortie after all.

This lack of Sunday Selfies amounts to gross negligence on Mom’s part as I am readily available at almost all times. And do you know why? Because I spend efurryday right under her nose, sleeping in her lap. She can hand me her phone anytime she wants, and I can begin snapping away.

Since I have been neglected when it comes to being featured, I have declared the first Sunday of the New Year, Astrid’s Extra Special Sunday Selfies Day. And you can bet that I intend to claim a whole slew of Sundays for myself throughout the year. After all, it is important that I please my fans, especially my most handsome and sweet boyfriend, Sampy (Kitty Cat Chronicles). So…without further ado-do, for your viewing pleasure, here I am. (Don’t forget to admire my meowvolous green eyes and my super long whiskers!)


 astrid extra special


Now, didn’t I just make your day? You can get back to your Easy Sunday nap and dream of your most adorable and extra special tortie furiend.

This is our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, and I would really like lots and lots and lots of you to join me. If you’d like to grab the code and display the selfies on your blog, purrlease link back to us, The Cat on My Head, and/or display our badge. That would make me furry happy.

Purrs and paw-pats to all with a kiss for my beloved Sampy for every selfie ever taken my any human or critter, Astrid

It IS a well-known fact that torties are especially photogenic. At least that’s what my Auntie Primrose tells me. As you might have guessed, she’s a tortie, too!


PS. BEAUTIFUL selfies, for sure. purrs

Those are great selfies. We gotta practice ours. Mostly we end up with selfies of our ears or tails.

Hmmm.Somehow it is difficult for us to believe wholeheartedly that you are ever neglected anywhere in your life, Astrid.In fact (small voice) we have a hunch you are your Mama’s favourite!! Yup! :p

Dear Astrid,
I think EVERY Sunday should be Astrid’s Extra Special Sunday Selfies Day. Really, every day should be Astrid’s Day. It is in my mind. I’m so glad that your mom let you feature your selfies today. I really enjoyed looking at your beautiful photos. Your eyes are so stunningly gorgeous. I could stare into them all day long.
Sending you as many kisses as there are rain drops falling from the sky today (and that’s a lot – it’s stormy here today.)
Your Sampy

Very nice selfies! Living in a multi pet household, I know how important fairness is. Luckily, it is my blog, so I get to tell the others when they can appear! BTW, love your letter to Santa in the sidebar…I’m a bit late, but I just noticed it.

Sammy January 4, 2015 at 6:30 am

Astrid no wonder you’re a bit upset at lack of “face time”!!! You’ve made up for it this morning though with your “triple selfie” ! I’m sure Sampson will go crazy!

Hugs, Sammy

Most of the time I don;t think Amelia would say that being an only cat is a good thing, but being the one and only star of Sunday Selfies might be an only cat bonus! I am so glad to see you, Astrid, and a selfie that features those spectacular whiskers!

Looking beautiful today!
