Sunday Selfies: Week #449

Beautiful tuxie cat in a heart and flower framed portrait.


Can you believe that I haven’t had a selfie in two months? And then I had to share, as it was Tuxedo Cat Appreciation Day. I guess now that there are nine of us Kitties Blue, it isn’t the worst record. And Mom caught me off guard. She’d just let me lick the remains of some margarine off her knife at breakfast, so I was distracted! Regardless, I think I did a pretty great job with my selfie. I really hope my angel boyfriend Charles sees and likes it. I miss him so much!

Hopping Time

You know how this works…I show you my selfie and you share yours with me and all your other friends, and I really hope that’s exactly what you do. But if you don’t post on Sundays or are too busy to join us today, the hop will be open through Thursday.

Thanks for coming to see us whether or not you shared a selfie. Now, have an easy Sunday! That’s what I am planning on doing.

Purrs & paw-pats, Lisbeth



Sunday Selfies: #448

I have my paws crossed that my mom remembers to post this, as you don’t get to see me that often. I cannot believe that she didn’t post Cooper Murphy and Audrey’s Caturday Art until a few minutes ago. She just totally forgot. I really hope after you add your selfie to our hop that you’ll visit yesterday’s post and leave us a comment.

Without further preamble, here’s my rare tortie sighting selfie.

Do you like it? Did I do a good job? The last time I was on the blog was January 14. I have started spending a lot more time with mom, usually when she’s busy trying to work on the computer. I wonder if I’m the reason she forgot to publish. I know I was in her lap last night. You can see her hand on my head. I was getting scritches when I snapped this. If the late post was my fault, I am sorry; though, scritches are more important than posting!

Hopping Time

Now that I’ve shared my selfie, it’s your turn. I know all of you get more practice at this than I do, so I am expecting some pretty great selfies. And I really hope you’ll invite some of your friends to join the fun. We always welcome newbies and the opportunity to make new friends. Remember, all anipals are welcome regardless of species. And if you don’t post on Sundays, that’s not a problem. Our hop is open through Thursday.

Thanks so much for following and supporting us and for joining our hop.

Now go enjoy an easy Sunday.

Sunday Selfies: Week #447

Today’s selfie is of longhorn, Buster the Bull, from Steele’s Tavern, Virginia. Actually, we don’t know his name but decided he should have one.

When he asked if he could share a selfie with you, we didn’t think we could refuse. Those horns look very scary.

Did you know that Periwinkle & Stinky visited the longhorns on one of their adventures? It was July 14, 2020, and also Cow Appreciation Day. If you’d like to see lots more longhorns as well as Stinky and Periwinkle in their cow headdresses, click on the link. They look totally adorable.

Whether you have taken a selfie today or you have enlisted a surrogate, we sure hope you’ll join the Sunday Selfies blog hop. Did you notice we are getting close to that 450 hop milestone? Take advantage of these last couple of preceding Sundays to purrfect your selfie skills.

If you haven’t done it yet, also take a little time to spring your clocks forward an hour. Purrsonally, we hate this messing around with the time. We get totally confused about when it is time to eat. Our mom, on the other hand, who always preferred standard time has decided she likes the longer hours of light during daylight saving time.

Thanks for joining us. Have a terrific and easy Sunday.

Purrs & paw-pats, Misty May, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer, Kizmet, Audrey & Raleigh



Sunday Selfies: Week #446

You know what? Mom says I’m cute, and I have to agree with her. Just look at my sweet face. I’m sorry the photo is a bit out of focus.

I know that every one of you is just as cute as I am. And I sure hope you’ll come by and share your selfie with me and all your friends. If you are busy today, please don’t fret. You can join me anytime through Thursday midnight ET.

Still Tweaking

So, as you may have noticed, Mom is still playing around with our new theme. I’m not certain when she’ll be happy with it. She has promised not to change it significantly again.

We realize Comment Luv is not working. After investigating the plug-in, she has discovered that it has not been updated by the developer in three years nor has it been tested with the current version of WordPress. So for now, she is deactivating it. If you’d like, feel free to add a link to your most recent post in your comment.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, whether or not you’ve joined our hop. Your support and friendship mean the world to us.

Purrs and paw-pats, Audrey



Sunday Selfies: Week #445


Grey cat, looking sad, in a shades of grey profile portrait.


Kizmet is looking a little sad but still lovely in her profile portrait in shades of grey. She had a little help from Dad Tom to create it. She’s sitting on the back of her dad’s chair watching it rain. After some gorgeous, warm weather with lots of kitty catio time, it has turned cold and wet. There was a lot of napping going on in the house yesterday.

So this is Kizmet’s selfie for the week. I know she would love for you to join her on the selfie hop. Remember, you don’t even need to post today to join. Our hop remains open through Thursday at midnight ET.

Kitties Blue and I thank you for visiting—and hopefully hopping—today. Have an easy Sunday.



Sunday Selfies: Week #444


Orange tabby kitty napping in a blue chair and framed in a blue frame.


Napping is so much more important than taking a selfie, so I made Dad Tom take this photo of me. Then Mom mucked it up with this frame in an attempt to cover up all my fur that is clinging to the chair. Sheesh! You can still see it if you enlarge the photo the tiniest bit!

Well, that’s enough of me complaining. I am supposed to be inviting you to join me on our blog hop. It’s easy and fun to do. It only takes a couple minutes to add your link. And, if you cannot do it today, that’s okay. You have until Thursday at midnight ET.

So, I have now done my duty and will be returning to my nap. Thanks for joining us. Enjoy an easy Sunday. That’s what I’ll be doing.

Purrs & paw pats, Raleigh



Sunday Selfies: Week #443

I feel extremely fortunate today, as I get to share a special Valentine selfie with all of you. It’s a bit out of focus, but I think you can still enjoy my gingery goodness.

I know Mom usually only provides you with a jigsaw puzzle on Caturdays, but I convinced her to make one today as well.

Hopping Time

So that’s it for me. I’m a cat of a few words today. I just need to invite you to post a selfie and then join me and all your other friends here on the hop. You can do that any time between now and midnight Thursday.

And don’t forget to check out the Great American Rescue Bowl (GARB), formerly the Kitten Bowl. It will air today at 10:30 a.m. ET on the Great American Family channel. Not only will it feature kittens needing homes, but also puppies as well as adult dogs and cats.

Thanks for joining us today. We totally appreciate your friendship and support.

Purrs and paw-pats, Cooper Murphy



Sunday Selfies: Week #442

The two youngest Kitties Blue ladies are here today as your hosts for Sunday Selfies. They’d like to apologize to Noelle who was hoping to see Sawyer. But when you are as terrific looking as these two and have posed so beautifully, you need to steal the spotlight and have a two fur, at least for the day!

We do know that each of you is as adorable as Kizmet and Audrey, so please snap a selfie and join our hop. All of Kitties Blue enjoy seeing you each week, and we know your other friends do as well. We love having all of you as our friends and appreciate your support and participation each week.

Have an easy Sunday.




Sunday Selfies: Week #441

Today is one of three special days to celebrate tuxedo (tuxie) cats. I guess that speaks to how popular they are. This is Tuxedo Cat Appreciation Day.


And if one tuxie cat is good, then four must be GREAT! So today I am sharing selfies of our four tuxies, two angels and two current Kitties Blue. On the left are Daphne and Mau, and on the right are Lisbeth and Misty May. Dad Tom calls Lisbeth a cow cat, as she is more white than black, but that’s just how he sees her.

Just in case you missed the opportunity to honor your tuxie(s) today, here are the dates for the other two celebrations: September 9 is Tuxie Appreciation Day and November 29 is known as National Tuxedo Cat Day!

Remembering Emmy

As we often do on our Sunday Selfies posts, we’d like to remember a special friend who recently received her angel wings—Emmy from 15AndMeowing. Being a tuxie girl herself, this day is meant to celebrate her as well.



If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit Emmy’s human mom and dad, Ellen and David, click here to go to 15AndMeowing.

Hopping Time

Now it’s the time when you get to share your selfie with all of us as well as your other friends. You can link up below anytime now through Thursday. And thanks so much for joining us. Each of you are special, and we totally appreciate you being our friends and part of the hop.




Sunday Selfies: Week #440

Not since Mauricio have we had a cat who enjoyed posing for the camera as much as Kizmet. All the other Kitties Blue turn away as quickly as possible. It doesn’t hurt that she is a very attractive young lady. She hopes you like her selfie!

Now it’s your turn to share your selfie. I am certain you will take one that rivals Kizmet’s for adorableness. And I know we and all your other friends want to see it. Don’t worry if you cannot join our hop today, however, it remains open through Thursday.

On behalf of Kitties Blue and myself, thank you so much for participating in our hop. Amazingly, this is week number 440. I truly do not know how those weeks and years passed so quickly!

Wishing everyone an easy Sunday!
