 Sunday Selfies: Week #57




Sunday Selfies aren’t for shy cats, mean or fey cats. They’re for kitties who are bold and brave.

And Sunday Selfies aren’t just for cats. They’re for rats and gnats and bunnies wearing hats.

They’re for any anipal who wants to shout, “I’m proud to show what I’m about.”

If you’re a woofie, duck or bat in your belfry, grab a camera and take a selfie!

I’m waiting to welcome you to our blog hop. Old friend, new friend, just you or with a prop.

Show us your ear, whisker, eye or paw. Smile, frown, act like a clown. Sing, yodel or pout.

Whatever you do, it’s all okay. Just add your selfie whether you bark, meow or neigh.

Come one, come all to our Selfies hopping blog even if you’re a frog, hog or polliwog.

I’m waiting for you and waving “hi,” so please, oh please drop on by.

It’s okay if you are silly, mean, fey or shy. Misty May is mean and we’ve let her do selfies. And both Lisbeth and I are very shy. All species are welcome regardless of photographic abilities. It doesn’t matter if your photo is blurry or bad, shows only your nose, ear or chin.

We had a great turnout last week with more than 60 participants, including a bobcat, goose and kangaroos. Otherwise, it’s been a super quiet week here at The Cat on My Head with very few visitors and comments. We hope this isn’t a trend. We know we haven’t been able to get out and about to visit much lately and promise this absence will be coming to an end soon.

Cat4-001If you have friends who have been considering joining our blog hop but have been hesitant, give them a nudge and let them know how much fun it is. If you’d like to have the hop on your blog, you can get the code below. Please link back to The Cat on My Head and/or display our badge if you do. Many thanks!

Here’s looking at you from my selfie, Astrid (with kisses for my sweet Sampy)

Astrid, your poem is as lovely as you! And we didn’t realize that Misty May was mean…how could she possibly be with that sweet name?!!

Love and hugs to all of and to your Mama too. 🙂

WHAT a beautiful face looking at me there. Reminds me of my Admiral. Oh how I love Torties and certainly all other babies as well including my feminine Katie Isabella…Queen of All Tennessee.

Dearest Astrid,
That is a truly stunning selfie my friend. I love it!! You have lovely eyes! And we understand being sad and frustrated with little comments and visitors to your blog. I often get only 2-3 comments per blog post, and it sometimes makes me sad too. But you’re gonna love my Duckie Selfie Sunday!! My duckies did my hair for me. BOL!!
Hope to talk to you soon.
Your friend, Pixel <3

We are taking pictures this week, so we will be ready next week. Bill is back on the road. I am struggling to get back to a routine, a schedule. It isn’t easy. And health issues are a problem, too. ❤

Beautiful AND a talented poet? Astrid, you’ve got it all! And Sampson couldn’t agree more. As usual, he is thrilled to be seeing you this morning. He hopes that you have a wonderful Sunday, and sends a kiss for every animal in the world, along with all of his love. We all send lots of love and hugs too.
P.S. Sorry to hear you are down in numbers lately. We have been too, though we are attributing it to our almost 3 week absence. We are hoping things pick back up for us now that we are posting and visiting/commenting more regularly. We are sure it will pick back up for you too!

My kitty sis Sophie is rather shy, so she doesn’t do selfies much, but the rest of us love to join in. I think last week was busy for people getting back into the fall routines after Labor Day. Have a great week!

Thank you so much for hosting the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop! Astrid, we loved your selfie, and your poem was terrific. We think it was kind of a quiet week because everyone was struggling to get back into the swing of things after the Labor Day weekend, and then it was 9/11. Lots to occupy everyone’s hearts and minds and all. Hugs and headbonks to you, our dear friends. – Moosey, Gracie and Zoe, and Mom and Dad, too
