I have reported often that Astrid is our bag lady as well as shared many photos of her curled up in a variety of these receptacles. She discovered some brown packing paper on the kitchen counter and immediately burrowed into it. It was apparent she found it every bit as satisfying as any bag. While snuggled in she decided to take some selfies to share with you today.




To Astrid’s disappointment, her paper habitation was short-lived. As soon as she completed snapping her selfies, she began shredding the paper into confetti and depositing it on the floor. Being the “mean” mommy, I removed her from her newly-acquired, paper abode and transported it to the recycling bin.

She was less than pleased but, to my great relieve, said that she still loves me! She then returned to her rightful place in my lap.



This is our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. We look forward to seeing your submissions. As a reminder, if you have animals in search of forever homes, this is a great way to showcase them.

If you’d like to display the submissions on your blog, the code is below. I only ask that you link back to The Cat on My Head and/or display our badge.

Stay warm and have an Easy Sunday.

p.s. Astrid is sending her boyfriend Sampy kisses for every Sunday that has passed since the beginning of time.

Shredding would be nice. It sometimes happens, but more times than not, Nicky considers it his private litter box. Needless to say, the boxes do not stay down long.
Here is my entry:

At least you were able to get a good amount of shredding in before your Mama took your good times away, right Astrid?!! 🙂 Esme also likes to shred paper things 🙂 Enjoy you lap time with your Mama!

Sampy wants to know if he can join Astrid in her paper burrow? He says she looks so snuggly sweet. He also wants Astrid to know that he is dreaming of her in his snuggly selfie today. He sends her a kiss for every kiss that has every been given by anyone ever. He also sends lots of love. We are all sending our love!

There are several mean people here who do the same thing when I try to make paper more comfortable. I think your bag lady selfies are divine and I hope next time you get to keep your bed, shreds and all!


Pipo &Minko ~ WeBeesSiameezers February 22, 2015 at 12:28 am
