ASTRID’S SUNDAY SELFIE FOR SAMPY

by Janet Blue on August 2, 2015

I was coerced into taking a selfie today as I was sitting on Mom’s lap while all the other Kitties Blue were on the catio. I resisted a lot and made Mom delete a whole lot of very blurry furry photos. Try saying that three times fast! MOL! Anyhoo, I figured if I had to do it, I would fancy up my photo with a pretty frame and dedicate it to my true love, Sampy. I have my paws crossed that he will like it.

We thought today was a pretty big deal as we mistakenly counted this as the 52nd week of our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. One entire year of selfies. But guess what? It is only week 51! Mom has always been math challenged, but she blames Linky Tools.

Even though we find another week must roll by before we can claim that one year title, we are going to say THANK YOU this week and again next week. All of us, including Mom, are surprised at how successful the blog hop has been. We are delighted that so many friends join each week and seem to have fun with it.

We’ve particularly enjoyed the Sundays when we have had a guest host as none of us have to make certain our furs are in order and that we don’t have any noms on our faces.

We all were curious to find which of the eight of us posted the most selfies and so asked Mom to count them up for us. Here are the results: Me (Astrid) = 9; Mauricio = 8; Lisbeth = 8; Fiona = 6; Giulietta = 6; Lily Olivia = 6; Calista Jo = 5; Honorary Kitty Blue Swizzle = 3 and Misty May = 2. That equals 53, but we have had some “groupies” and this doesn’t include our guest hosts.

I’m really not surprised that I have been featured the most often. After all, I am Mom’s “heart” cat. So, I guess that means I get to declare myself Queen of the Selfies.

We are all feeling a bit embarrassed about Misty May only having two selfie posts. In light of this, Mom has proclaimed our actual 52nd Sunday Selfies post (next weekend): MISTY MAY SELFIE DAY. The challenge will be getting her to take that selfie and share it with you.

Cat4-001Well, back to this Sunday…we look forward to seeing all your selfies and visiting your blogs. To add your link, click below. And please add the hop to your blog if you’d like by getting the code below. We only ask that you link back to The Cat on My Head and/or display our badge. Many thanks again, dear friends.

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

Misty May, it’s quite the honor to be chosen for the 52nd Selfie! For realz!

(We’re soooo sorry we’ve been AWOL – yet again! Our grandma has been hospitalized 3 times in the past 2 weeks – we think a lot of this stems from her losing our grandpa last month, and life’s just been a bit stinky over here, what with losing our grampa, and our grandma’s illness and our mom *gasp* traveling for work, yet AGAIN! Grrrrr….any idea on how to get her to spend more TIME with us???)

Nice one, Astrid! Sampy is going to love it, for sure.

Thank you for hosting the Selfie Sunday Blog Hop, and for featuring our sweet pal Swizzle three times! BTW, our mom and dad took some of the goodies from the BlogPaws swag bag we won from you to PAWS yesterday. Dad took some snaps of Swizzle with her new toys … they’re slightly fuzzy, but he will send them to your Mom Janet soon. 🙂

Hugs!

Astrid
Sammy is going to LOVE your Selfie! Paws down.
What a lovely selfie it is too.
Why not start the celebrating a week early? That’s a great idea and then next week can be the extravaganza! We really enjoy participating each week, and truthfully in our experience Sundays was one of the slowest days of the week for blog readership and we’ve found there is a lot more interest on our Sunday posts now that we’re doing Sunday selfies! I hope that is true of everyone too.
Happy Sunday Selfie!

My dearest Astrid,
You have a beautifully dreamy look about you in your selfie. I think it suits you purrfectly, because to me, you are like a dream. Sometimes I wonder how I am so lucky to have you as my girlfriend and I’m afraid that it’s all dream. But I truly AM blessed beyond belief to be able to call you mine, and myself yours. I love you times infinity, and I am sending you a kiss for every dream that’s every been had by anyone.
Yours truly,
Sampy
