Sunday Selfies: Week #90


C.J. is looking springy in her ribbons and roses selfie on May Day.


Your host for today is the baby of Kitties Blue, Calista Jo. She didn’t quite look at the camera while she snapped her photo, but I still think she’s adorable decked out in ribbons and roses for May Day.

Cat4-001So, if you are new here: This is our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. I am shocked that it is now week #90. That is just shy of one and a quarter years. The kitties and I are so grateful for those of you who have embraced this venture of ours and come back week after week. And we get just as excited now as we did in the beginning when someone new joins us.

If you haven’t joined in yet, what are you waiting for? You don’t have to be a kitty to pawticipate. We’ve had every manner of critter join us from crabs, to donkeys, to kangaroos, to horses… You name it, and we’ve probably had that anipal join us.

Sometimes, I know that one or two of you will have trouble adding your link. If that happens, leave a comment, and I will add it for you. Should you want to display the hop on your blog, you can do so by using the code below. I only ask that you display our badge and/or link back to The Cat on My Head .

Remembering Friends

It breaks our hearts every time we lose one of our blogging friends. Sadly, we lost three this week: Cinco from Playful Kitty, Forrest from All Fur One and One Fur All, and William from William of Mass Destruction. If you haven’t already done so, please visit and leave your condolences for their families.

We used to have the badges of our friends who have gone to the Bridge on our sidebar, but we now have a dedicated page with a tab to reach it on our menu bar. We have added the badges of these two kitties and one woofie to that page. Rest in Peace, dear friends.

Special Announcement Update

Well, no, this isn’t the announcement. We just wanted to let you know that we will be having one. It was scheduled for Thursday, but has been changed to next week’s Sunday Selfies post. Trust us, this is something special, and you don’t want to miss it. This is info you don’t want to get second-paw!

That’s it for us today. Have a happy May Day!

Calista Jo is such a beautiful girl. 🙂 Thank you so much for honoring my Cinco here. I am overwhelmed by the support I’ve received from the cat blogging community. I am still in mourning, but as one of my favorite passages from the Bible puts it, I’m “struck down, but not destroyed.” Thank you again for showing love to me in my time of need.

Why hello Beautiful girl! You are looking fabulous today–Queen of the May perhaps?

We too were sad this week, especially about William who has been a dear furiend since the we found his blog even before the Human started to help me blog myself. We have to gather round and purr together through times like these and remember to be grateful that these kitties were loved and cared for.

We are very curious about your NEWS!!!

Calista Jo has such a sweet face…….mine isn’t really “sweet” today as much as it is “passed out” !! I’m quite the sleeper lately and if my camera is set up to sense a SNORE and automatically flash to capture me, then there’s no shortage of selfie material for future sleeping selfies! Hope everyone at the House of Blue has a wonderful (wet?) Sunday with some good snuggling.

Love, Sammy

So much loss, we lost three lovely kitties and Mum lost her Human brofur with his funeral on Friday UK time.

Like the song says Our Hearts Will Go On, just with a sadder step for a while. Hang in there, look to the sunshine, it will be there to warm us all.
