Sunday Selfies: Week #287


I definitely selected the wrong place to take my selfie with that window behind me. But I was on Mom’s lap when she asked me to take it, and she knew if I didn’t do it right then, it wouldn’t happen. Hope you’ll forgive the poor quality. I do feel it is important to let you know the thing behind me on the left that looks like a nipple, is really the nose of Snuffles the bear.

That’s it for me. I don’t have any exciting stories to tell you. Most of my time is spent on the second floor. I come downstairs for meals, and sometimes I join Mom in bed at night, where I purr up a storm and snuggle under the covers or bug Mau until he gives me a bath or lets me sleep with him.

So, that means it is time for y’all to share your selfies with us and all your other admirers. I obliged Mom with this photo, so I am not about to share those stupid hopping tips of hers. I’ll just ask that you share our badge and link back to us.

Thanks for letting me visit with you today.


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

Petcretary wishes PIpo would climb on her lap…but he just wants to be nearby, often in the cubbyhole at her desk….where he reaches out to give her a reminder pat, that yes, I am here and please give me a scritch! MOL!

Loved seeing your Tortie beautifulness, Astrid!

The light behind you makes yopu look as if you have a halo (mol).

It is a lovely selfie even with the light behind you.
I was just having a mid morning cup of coffee which I nearly choked on when I read about the “nipple”!

Hi Astrid! Nice of you to cooperate with an up close selfie……I think it’s fine that you have a hidey spot on the second floor and just visit for the occasional snooze and food. Sometimes we really need our privacy and you have a nice big house in which to find some solitude when you want it!

Happy Sunday to all of you
Love, Teddy
