Sunday Selfies: Week #138


Astrid springtime selfie


I told you I’d be back today as your host. I am embarrassed that it’s with another blurry photo. To top that off, I didn’t center myself in the frame. Some of you have gotten really good at this selfie thing, as you take one every week. If Kitties Blue evenly divided up the selfies among all of us, we’d each get 6.5 per year. Of course, they’ve not been divided up equally. Nonetheless none of us get much practice.

Mom did put me in a very nice, springtime frame. I think it helped disguise the poor photo quality a bit.

Anyhoo, you all know the routine. Use the link below to add your selfie to the hop. If you can’t join us today, it’s not a problem. The hop remains open through Thursday. Kitties Blue visits as many of the hoppers as we can, but we rarely get to everybody. With that in mind, it would be great if each one who enters visits some of the other participants. And invite your friends to join us. This is one of the best opportunities to see a lot of cute critters all in one place.

We encourage you to include the hop on your blog if you’d like to do so. You can get the code you’ll need below. As a courtesy to us, please include our badge or a link back to The Cat on My Head if you do so.


Giveaway Reminder

We are giving away a really wonderful product: the KittyRoo sweatshirt. It offers a warm and snuggly pouch for kitty or a small puppy. Plus, Mom says the sweatshirt is super soft and comfy, and she feels as if she has on her jammies when she’s wearing it. To read our original review and see some photos, click here. To win a sweatshirt for you and your human, leave a comment on that post prior to 5 p.m. ET on Thursday, April 6.

Wishing you all an easy and sunny Sunday.

Purrs and paw-pats, Astrid

We just finished the selfies. Sorry to be so late, Dusty has, as you know, not been well and Mum is often quite upset.


We made it. We hope to see you tomorrow * High Paw * We hope the week was a good one and our buddy Chris Robbins and his family LOVED the laser toy. LOVED IT! So thank you for the opportunity to gift it to the family.

Hi Astrid! I like your pic – it put a smile on my face and makes me think of the warm, sunny day we are finally having! The springtime frame your Mom chose for you is a very nice touch.

Flynn April 2, 2017 at 6:20 pm

You asked if I have long legs. Yes I do, but they are more noticeable since I have lost so much weight. If I stand on my back legs, I can easily reach the counter tops.

Astrid, you’re so pretty and the frame adds a very nice touch. We always really like–even prefer–what we call natural selfies. They seem fun and authentic to us. We hope you and all the Kitties Blue have lovely Sunday!

Roby Sweet April 2, 2017 at 7:35 am

Astrid, you look very pretty, even if you are a little blurry. I think being a little off center just makes you look more interesting, like “a cat of mystery.” 🙂

Another beautiful backdrop for your Sunday Selfie Astrid! My Mom was fiddling around with my sink selfie and got kind of artsy with it. I think it shows off my stripes! Happy Sunday to all of the KB Krew!

So great to see you, Astrid and you are looking so springy in your Spring Frame, that’s why the picture is maybe a little blurry, although we hardly noticed it 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy Sunday and thank you for hosting 🙂 <3
