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 #394

Unbelievably, I did not have to bribe or coerce anyone to take a selfie today. As you can see, the brothers, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer, volunteered and took an usie (what I like to call a two-fur) for you. The boys are your hosts today, and they look forward to you joining them.

This is not Coop and Sawyer’s first usie. They did one for Halloween. If you missed that post, you can see it at: “Scary Halloween Usie.”

They are cats of few words, but they both want to say, “hi,” to their girlfriends, Tyebe and Noelle, respectively. They also want to thank each of you for your support and friendship.

Now, let’s hoppity-hop-hop!



Sunday Selfies: Week #385

I usually have difficulty convincing one of the Kitties Blue to do a selfie, but for the first hop of the new year, I had two volunteers. So, I convinced them to take an usie or what I like to call a two-fur!

Sawyer and Calista Jo were enjoying an afternoon sunpuddle and a bit of a snooze before they snapped their photo.

They and their fursibs invite you to join them on our first Sunday Selfies blog hop of 2022. You can join anytime through Thursday just in case you are otherwise occupied today.

The kitties and I appreciate your support and friendship for the seven-plus years we have been hosting this blog hop. Participation has waxed and waned through the years, but many of you have stuck with us. We are most thankful for all of you.

Finally, I have been very remiss in visiting and commenting for the past few months, but I promise to improve in 2022.



Sunday Selfies: Week #382




Here is the two-fur I promised you yesterday. Sawyer and Kizmet often sleep side by side, as I have shared on a few other occasions. It is usually Sawyer who initiates the cuddling, but seeking each other out goes both ways. One of the reasons for adopting Kizmet was to provide Sawyer with a playmate, as none of the Kitties Blue would play with him. Their snuggling is a bonus. Sawyer hopes his girlfriend Noelle doesn’t get jealous. His relationship with Kizmet is strictly platonic.

Hopping Time

Now, it is your turn to share your selfie, or maybe you have a two-fur today as well. Whichever it is, we look forward to your joining us on the hop. You can link up below anytime through Thursday. So, if you’re not a Sunday poster, you can still join in the fun. and, of course, you don’t need to be of the feline persuasion to participate. All anipals are welcome.

Thanks for being our friends and supporting our hop each week.




Sunday Selfies: Week #372




Yesterday, I promised you a “two-fur” Sunday Selfie with Cooper Murphy and Kizmet, but I didn’t promise they would look happy about it! Though they were hanging out for a fair amount of time next to each other on the catio, it was not because they were “making nice.” They were ignoring each other and continued to do so while I took photos. Basically, Kizmet is a little bit too energetic for Cooper Murphy!

I added a little touch of fall foliage to their photo for some additional interest.

Now that Coop and Kizmet have shared, they invite you to join them and add your selfie to today’s blog hop. As a reminder, you do not have to post today to participate, and you can join anytime through Thursday. But why wait? Link up now and then enjoy a nice easy Sunday.

We always appreciate your participation, friendship and support.




Sunday Selfies: Week #311

We have two guest hosts today, and I absolutely guarantee you are going to squee when you see them.


Sunday Selfies


These two cuties were photographed by Dad Tom while they were trying to keep cool under the chaise longue on our upper deck. The little one on the left is half the size of the other. Normally we have raccoons that visit at night, but these were coming during the afternoon for a few days to get in Kitties Blue water bowl. We now have a big water bowl for them under the catio. It is okay for them to come at night but not when the gang is on their catio.

As you can imagine, all the Kitties Blue are happy to have the week off from the selfie gig. However, that doesn’t mean the rest of you get to take the day off. We are all anxious to see your selfies.

Remember it is not necessary for you to post on Sundays to join us. The hop is open through Thursday.

Please join us tomorrow for Sparks/Awww Mondays and Tuesday for the next installment in the series, “The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky.”

Thanks for supporting us, our blog and the Sunday Selfies blog hop.



Sunday Selfies: Week #103


Sisters Fiona and Giulietta present a twofur for the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop.


Today I have a two-fur of the most gorgeous sisters, Fiona and Giulietta. I selected this frame in PhotoFunia not knowing the photo would be turned into a painting as well. Aren’t they exquisite? It makes me sad to know they will not grow old together. They love each other so much. Even on these hot days they can be found cuddled together.

Today I worked in the yard for a couple of hours. Even though it was super H-O-T, I allowed Fiona to join me as she loves it so much. It was wonderful to see her exploring and enjoying herself. Watching her roll around on the driveway relishing the coolness of the concrete warmed my heart. She is truly a special girl.

Seven months have now passed since Fiona was diagnosed with Stage 4 CKD. When we left our vet’s office that day, I was not optimistic about her chances to survive for anything more than a very short time. In the scheme of things, seven months is a very short time but more than I expected. Many of you have written me about your cats. Some have survived as many as three years with CKD. We are blessed to have had these seven months, but I want more and pray she can survive as long as others have. So I continue to ask for your purrs, prayers and POTP for my sweet girl.




This is our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. The link to add your post to the hop is below. We had a great turnout last week with just short of 60 participants. Thanks for the continued support and interest in doing this hop.

If you’d like to have the entries appear on your blog, the code is below. Please link to The Cat On My Head and/or display our badge if you select this option. Thank you.


I am not a happy camper. I have been betrayed by the parental units. Today my toofies are getting cleaned, and I am having my blood purloined away for a Senior Panel. This is totally unfair. No other kitty here is having to have this invasion of their mouth. And I already refused to allow my bloods to be drawn at our annual round-up. What makes these misguided humans think I’m going to give my permission this time?

I have been so distressed about this entire situation. Even my friend and best man, Sammy, reminding me that it would be good to have clean toofies for Allie‘s and my upcoming wedding did not buoy spirits. I finally had to resort to some tuxie love and comfort. Now one would think that my sisfur Misty May would hold my paw, especially as she isn’t having her mouth violated. We, however, are not the best of friends.

So, I turned to the other tuxie in the house, Lisbeth. We had a good snuggle and nap together. After we woke up we continued to cuddle, and she gave me some reassuring words. It’s nice to know she empathizes with me. I promised her that when the day comes she has to have this toothy cleaning done I would be there to hold her paw.


Tuxie Tuesday Two-Fur


If all this wasn’t bad enough, Mom picked up all our foodables at 9 p.m. last night. Now I am not one to get up and nibble during the night, but the food is called CALM. Don’t you think this would have been good for me to munch on to settle my nerves? All I can say for now is that the treats better be free-flowing when I get home.

As tomorrow is Wordless Wednesday, either Mom or I will be back on Thursday to let you know how my day went.

Until then…

Purrs and paw-pats, Mauricio


Surprise, surprise! The dynamic duo of tuxie Mauricio and tortie Astrid are together again. They are in THE BOWL. This has become the preferred napping spot for several of the pusses. But this is a first…a bowl for two! Mauricio doesn’t really fit in the bowl by himself. But that didn’t stop his shadow from shoving in with him. And it didn’t stop him from giving her a bath.


Mauricio and Astrid share the antique dough bowl "bed"

Mauricio bathes Astrid as they crowd together in the antique dough bowl.


The bowl competition is liable to get heated as the colder weather sets in and none of the gang want to spend time on the catio. Their dad suggested we may need to start checking antique shows and shops for more wooden dough bowls. He doesn’t have to twist my arm. One of my favorite places to shop is Black Dog Salvage. If you get the DIY network (we don’t), you may have seen this place on the program Salvage Dawgs. They are located close enough for us to walk, and I don’t need truck to get bowls home!

I know even if we get extra bowls, Astrid will always seek out Mauricio. So, at most, we’ll only need six more bowls and someplace to put them all!
