Sunday Selfies: Week #115

I didn’t volunteer to do the selfie today, but my Dad found me in a place where I couldn’t easily extract myself and get away. I actually snapped four really good photos. In fact this is my best selfie ever! Mom has filed the other three for use on future Sundays.

With Halloween just around the corner, I could have made this ghoulish and scary as my fur sibs have been doing lately, but I didn’t want to mess with purrfection. So I got Mom to add a frilly frame befitting my purrsonality and gorgeous floofy furs.


Giulietta's Sunday Selfie


You cannot tell that I am peeking my head out of the bottom cubby on one of our small perches. I barely fit inside, so the pawrents know when I’m there as my tail or a paw is always sticking out.

I have been keeping to myself a lot lately, often stuffing myself in a cube or cubby where I know I will be left alone. If you know me well, you know that Fiona and I have always been inseparable. Mom thinks I am already in mourning as I sense Fiona won’t be with us a lot longer. Mom thinks I have been avoiding her in an attempt to not miss her so much when she’s no longer with us.

Of course, as a cat, I am not talking. In my defense, Fiona is usually curled up in one of our human’s laps, and trust me, there’s not room for the two of us.

And, I’ll tell you a little secret: That harness Mom ordered for me so I can begin exercising has arrived. If I stay stuffed away in a cube, she can’t put it on me. When you see it, you’ll know why I do NOT want to wear the dang thing. Mom may as well stick a note on my butt that says, “wide load.”

So that’s my selfie for today. I can’t wait to see who shows up in addition to our kitty and woofie friends. One or more exotic critters usually join us.

Cat4-001Mom says our purrticipation was quite low last week. That always makes of hearts hurt. If you’ve stopped joining us on Sundays, was it because of something we did? If so, purrlease leave us a comment and let us know.

We enjoy making new friends, so if you know any anipals you think might enjoy our hop, purrlease invite them to join us. The link to add your selfie to the hop is below as is the code to add the hop to your post if you’d like. Purrlease link back to The Cat on My Head and/or display our badge if you do this. Thank you.

Have an easy Sunday, dear friends.

Purrs and paw-pats, Giulietta

p.s. Lily Olivia asked me to tell you about the secret image in her art yesterday as some said they couldn’t find it. Superimposed atop Lily’s photo is a silhouette of a black cat. It’s head is facing left and is just above Lily’s head..

Great job on your selfie, Giulietta! You are so beautiful. You really should do selfies more often- look at that gorgeous fur! I’m sorry that you are upset about Fiona’s condition. It is hard to know that you will lose your friend. Just know that you are loved. *hugs*

Spitty the Kitty October 23, 2016 at 10:17 pm

Last Sunday my Human was still off disporting herself in Carmel with no concern at all for *MY* needs. But of course, you could never make anyone annoyed!!! It is just the innate laziness and negligence of Humans–except yours, I think–you gotted yourself a good one. Miss Giulietta, you looks absolutely adorables there! “wide load” indeed–hrumph–you better give that sign to my Human!!!

Giulietta, you took a fantastic selfie. I’m sorry Fiona isn’t feeling as social as she was in the past. I’m sure the two of you are having lots of good kitty communication and you’re doing what’s best for her right now.

Giulietta, you are just beautiful. We are sorry about Fiona being sick. We were sad when William was sick, and William really was when Russell was getting ready to go. It’s just part of it all, we guess.

We don’t hop because our mom is too lazy to let us post on Sundays. 😉

Jean Dion October 23, 2016 at 2:35 pm

What a sweet photo that is. And I can’t wait to see the harness! Popoki does a little leash walking herself, and she adores her special alone time with momma (although she protests a lot about getting the dang harness on). Maybe that’s what this little one needs as she prepares for the big transition in your home.

I’ll keep your family in my thoughts.

Giuletta, I have leaky eyes just thinking about precious Fiona not being with you and growing old together. She is still with you but I am sure she doesn’t feel like her real self these days. Your selfie is very lovely. I don’t think you look like a wide load at all—just sayin’

Your Dad always takes the best photos!! Speaking for us, not only have we barely been blogging AT ALL…………due to a plethora of reasons from work, to illness, to not caring one whit, when we DO post anymore we normally don’t post on weekends. Sometimes we do, but it’s rare. When we post it is usually Mon, Wed or Fri unless something else is going on. We will be blogging seven years this week and we are TIRED!!!

As far as not being room for 2 of you on your human’s lap, we find a way to share, even if it’s hanging on her arm or sitting on her chest. Then we decide to fight over who gets to stay and who does not. Great selfie.

Giulietta what a beautiful selfie of you. We can certainly understand how much everyone’s hearts are hurting with Fiona. Having anyone with a serious illness is very difficult and we all try and help to do our parts.

We so enjoy the Selfies each Sunday and we really enjoy them and always try and join. I know that one Sunday we were without power we were not able to join because of old Matthew! We hate hurricanes!

We hope this is a good enjoyable Sunday for all!

Lovely selfie Giulietta, we are so sorry Fiona isn’t doing well we are sending more healing purrs to her and comforting purrs to all of you.

We are sorry we don’t have a selfie to share this week, it’s all on US or rather our Secretary. She has been doing a sub-par job on our post, they are rushed, they are hurried and they certainly don’t meet our standards. But sometimes you just have to cut Mom’s some slack. Anyway this week Scylla was forced into sharing movies.

We will try our best to have a selfie next week.

PeeS from Scylla: Giulietta, dieting and exercise aren’t so bad. I have lost lots of weight on my metabolic diet and chasing the kittens has helped me regain my girlish figure.

Giulietta your selfie is so pretty…….I know it has to be super hard on you seeing Fiona struggling so much with her health and while I’m sure you’re not staying away from her on purpose, I’m sure you sense things aren’t right. You two girls will always be joined at the heart no matter what. We send prayers for Fiona every day. We send YOU a hug because I’m sure you need one!
