Sunday Selfies Blog Hop

I was able to get out of this last week when I demanded Calista Jo post her selfies. I wasn’t able to dissuade Mom, however, from using my photos this week. It meant she didn’t have to twist any other cat’s paw to get them to pose and snap their own photo. So here I am, Lily Olivia, in all my blurry glory. Mom tried to fancy things up a bit, but I know we can’t fool you into thinking there’s anything good about these photos. I’m positive all of you can do so much better!

We are looking forward to your joining our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop prior to getting your Sunday Easy on. If you’d like to get the code and share the submissions on your blog, can you please link back to The Cat on My Head and/or display our badge.

As Mom was still out of town when we posted our Sunday Selfies last week, we weren’t able to get around to visit all of you who entered your selfies. We are super sorry for this, and we promise to visit each of you this week.

We are participating, but Z-Girl is experiencing technical idiocy, and is unable to get the linky tool to work. Sigh…
Fun stuff though! Will try to get it together for the next hip blog hop!


Pipo &Minko ~ WeBeesSiameezers November 10, 2014 at 12:28 am

We got back into the bloggie world today, but limited to some comments here and there as meowmy needs to get rid of that stupid dog in her chest…it won’t listen to our dog=guy when he barks…whats up with that?
Stoli sounds like a neat name, it reminds meowmy of ‘stollen’ that seasonal bread with almond paste and nuts…Mmmm!

We agree with Bethany – what’s wrong with it if the photo has a cat in it? NOTHING!

That’s the great thing about selfies. They’re original and fun. They may sometimes be blurry (ours sure have and continue to be), but they’re of kitties so they’re always good. I think you look adorable, Calista Jo. You always take pretty selfies.

I’m so sorry. I meant Lily Oliva although Calista Jo is pretty too.

Ms Lily Olivia I Think Flynn said it the BESTEST. “They are lovely selfies. Blurry gives a romantic look.” Your natural beauty will always shine through.

Robin November 9, 2014 at 1:47 am

Just consider it “artistic”. The lighting and the blurriness are really relaying a very unique quality about you.It’s moody, yet full of undeniable cuteness. This is Lily Olivia, the artist kitty, making a statement to the world about cat selfies.:)

If my human has a photo she likes that is blurry, she uses effects to turn it into an impressionistic painting! 😉
