FIRST DAY OF SPRING SELFIE

by Janet Blue on March 20, 2016

Sunday Selfies: Week #84

Spring begins 30 minutes after this post goes live, and Astrid is ready to meet it. Well, her selfie is ready. She’s sleeping, and will not see it until morning.

 

Astrid Welcomes Spring

 

Unfortunately, she is meeting it with a razzleberry. After unseasonably warm temperatures this past week, including a high of 83 degrees F. on Wednesday, we now are having rain and cold. Our high on Saturday was more than 40 degrees colder than on Wednesday. It’s okay if you are a human and basketball fanatic, but it sucks if you’re a cat who wants to be on the catio watching bird TV.

Nevertheless, we are all happy to have winter officially over; though, we know winter weather can hit anytime for the next few weeks.

Cat4-001By now you all know that this is our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. Astrid would be so happy if lots of you would join her here. Last week we had one of our smallest turn-outs ever, which made your host, Lily Olivia, very sad. Please don’t give Astrid the sads this week. Invite all your critter friends to join in the hop. And visit some of the other participants and say, “Howdy do!” This is such a fun way to make new friends.

As usual, if you have any trouble linking up, leave a comment and I will add your link for you. It always makes us happy when some of you share the hop entries on your blog. So, please continue to do so. I only ask that you display our badge and/or link to The Cat on My Head.

Thanks for being friends and hoppers. And…

Happy Spring 2016!

Oh Astrid! Don’t be sad!!! I was #54 already! You look very beautifuls today my dear. Speaking of sads, pretty soon I will has ZERO comments if the Human does not get back into some kind of system of helping me visit–sheesh. I’d do it myself but my paws just can’t seem to get the hang of this keyboard. Maybe I need voice recognition software? Meow meow meow meow meow meow…….

Astrid – I think this is a lovely portrait. Reminds me of Mystery who would razzleberry then drool just a little when we would read together (Mysteries of course!)

McGuffy's Reader March 20, 2016 at 11:54 pm

What a truly beautiful Spring selfie! We hope to get back into this meme. We love seeing all the sweet faces. Now that Bill is settling into his new job, we are getting our lives back. It will be so nice to have a normal routine! XO

We’re up here in Rural New England, and this whole winter has been wacky. Now they’re talking about a Noreaster when almost all the snow is gone. Really??? Thankfully my kitties are all safe and warm inside, as are these feral cats. Some, however, aren’t so lucky.

Phyllis S March 20, 2016 at 12:31 pm

Fabulous blog hop and Happy Spring!

Kitty Cat Chronicles March 20, 2016 at 12:25 pm

Happy First Day of Spring! We had snow showers yesterday which briefly turned into an “ice” shower……but this morning – all melted as if it never happened. Maybe that is a sign that it really is about to be SPRINGY?? Hope you all have a beautiful Sunday…..

Thank you so much for hosting this blog hop, we’re really new to this but is great fun and so good Olivia does it. That is such a change in weather, we just have dull and or rain in UK. Im sure once it stays warm there will be no need for raspberries, unless they’re the eating kind purrs. ERin
