Sunday Selfies: Week #314



Bet you missed me in this photo, unless you looked really closely. Mom asked me to take a selfie while I was sitting on her lap blocking her from reading her e-book. I agreed, but I didn’t know I was going to be photobombed by Cooper Murphy’s gigantic (over-lit) belly. Pffft! If Mom had been nice, she would have edited him right out of this photo. For that matter, she could have easily removed herself as well. Double Pffft!

Sixth Anniversary Selfies Survey

We began our Sunday Selfies blog hop on Sunday, August 17, 2014, (Lisbeth’s and my birthday). Six years is a long time for a blog hop, so we have a short (four question) survey for you in order to determine if we should continue, and if so, how often.

Click HERE to take our survey.

We’ll let you know next Sunday what you all decide.

Hopping Time

It’s now time for you to join the hop by linking up your selfie. We look forward to seeing your adorable faces each week as do all your friends and followers. We’d love for you to display our badge or link back to The Cat on My Head. As a reminder, it is not necessary to post on Sunday to join the hop. The hop remains open through Thursday. We appreciate each of you for joining us whether you are a regular or a newbie.

Birthday Party Tuesday

Normally we wouldn’t be posting on Tuesday, as it is Stinky and Periwinkle’s week to have their adventure at Friends Furever, which they will. But we’ll be here as well celebrating Lisbeth’s and my ninth birthday. Cooper Murphy has taken over Mau’s Cat Scout Bake Shop, so he’ll be creating our cake. Please stop by and party with us as well as visit Friends Furever for “The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky.”

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

What a fantastic selfie! Your mom is very pretty and she looks just like a teenager 😉
Cooper M’s belly is lovely to gaze upon (well the Human says so anyway–I am too interested in Astrid to notice).
We are real sorry Sawyer had another seizure so soon this time. He is a TROOPER, and my hero! We hope he bounces back real quick.
Also, even though we don’t join in EVERY Sunday (glares at Human) we are glad the Sunday Selfies are here every week so we voted that way in the survey. But if you’d rather it be every other week or even once a month we will still play (RIGHT, Human???)
And huge congrats on the 6 years! That’s just amazing. Lots of kissies from me to Miss Misty May and from both of us to sweet Sawyer. XOXO

Hi Astrid. We have to admit we did have to do a double take to see you on your mom’s lap. That orange belly is tough to miss and you are more of a camo color. You sure look happy all curled up on your mom’s lap. We enjoy participating in your Sunday Selfie blog hop and hope you continue it.

Astrid we noticed you right off the bat. You look lovely and we didn’t even notice the distractions.

We will take the survey and we are glad to be hopping this week. Mom took some fantastic photos of Yang. Or rather Yang took some fantastic photos of himself.

We are glad Cooper Murphy took over the bake shop and we will hopefully get to come to your party.

Happy early birthday to you and Lisbeth just in case we don’t make it by.

Peaches & Paprika August 16, 2020 at 9:01 am

Astrid, we are with you all way! That’s exactly the way to handle the situation of your mom trying to use a laptop when you are ready to rock and roll with lap time. And Cooper Murphy, um, what are YOU up to? Could it be you are trying to steal the spotlight from Astrid? I myself do that all the time when Peaches gets some attention. I do something outrageous so I, Paprika, cannot be forgotten! Great “group” family picture!


The Island Cats August 16, 2020 at 8:58 am

We did see you, Astrid. But too bad Cooper Murphy butted in. 😉

Love your “hop” and it’s amazing that you’ve reached the 6-year mark: ConCats! We did the survey, yet agree with several other friends above … (and know personally) … a commitment to something takes time, energy and “love”. You certainly give this a whole lot of love, no doubt there … but perhaps every-other-week would allow your time and energy to move toward something new or different. Whatever your decision … it’s always great to be a Sunday Selfie, thank you!

It WAS very rude of him to muscle in on your selfie, Astrid – but We must admit, you both look gorgeous. Your Mom too!

We hope you will continue with the weekly blog hop, but if it is too much for you to post effury week, once a fortnight would also be great!

Love the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and hope it continues (I love every week but if you space it out you can always leave the linky open so that people can post between new hops).

Sad news: Tsunami crossed over the Rainbow Bridge this week.
He is now reunited with Legend and all of my fur babies that have gone before him.


Dash Kitten and Harvey August 16, 2020 at 1:42 am

Janet and Kitties Blue.

I am not sure if I did the survey correctly BUT I know Harvey is with me when I say whatever you decide to do is fine by us. It is a huge commitment to present to us every week. Once a month? Fine, Twice a month? Fine. Whatever you decide to do is OK by us.

We love all of you and want YOU to be happy in whatever you do.
