Some readers have the impression that our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop is just for anipals of the feline persuasion with a few canines showing up each week. Our special bunny friend, Speedy, participates regularly, and a few other critters have shown up occasionally.

In an effort to encourage the piggies, horses, goats and other critters to come forward and show us what they can do when it comes to selfies, we will be having guest hosts for the next few weeks.

Today, we are introducing you to Chris Crab. In the weeks to come, you’ll meet, Rudy, Pete, Lenny and others.




You may find yourselves asking how our guests were coerced coaxed to take selfies. Let’s just say that our female human (formerly known as Mom)* has some masterful powers of persuasion.

We are looking forward to all our old friends joining us today and with any luck some new ones as well. As always, if you have any trouble linking, let us know in the Comments. Mom will enter your link for you. We are delighted so many of you are promoting Sunday Selfies on your blog.  If you decide to get the code so the entries post to your blog as well, please display our badge and/or link back to The Cat on My Head.



Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

* The humans as yet have not redeemed themselves sufficiently for their gross negligence and 15-day abandonment of us. When we deem that they have satisfactorily fulfilled our every whim and desire, they will regain their familiar designations.

Oh boy – 15 days of abandoment? You are in it DEEP!

I am so traumatized by the punishment and guilt heaped upon me by the cats of my past that I dare not leave my current crew for more than a partial day!

Thanks for being such an awesome hostess!
