Can you figure out which I am…grumpy or sleepy?



I was sitting in Mom’s lap when I took these photos. If Mom is at the computer or sitting at the kitchen counter, I am in her lap if Astrid hasn’t already claimed it. Mom stuck her iPhone in my face and told me to take some photos. Since I was having a nice, sitting-up nap, I could not be bothered to open my eyes more than required to paw the photo button. So, I was a little of both: sleepy (I was napping after all) and grumpy (for being disturbed to take selfies).

So…whichever you guessed, you’d be correct. Dad says these look like mug shots! Now that comment definitely makes me grumpy! Pffft!



This is our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. We are looking forward to lots of you joining us and showing off your photographic skills. If you would like to grab the code and display the entries on your blog, purrlease link back to us and/or display our badge. That would definitely make me very ungrumpy!

Have an easy Sunday and purrlease join us tomorrow for Sharkie and Blue’s snow adventure.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia

we are pleased we found your blog. My human is not all that good at looking for things for me. She likes to follow blogs in her browser and can’t find a button for yours. things have changed since she started the blog for Diamond years ago and she can’t keep up with the technology.

That makes TOTAL sense. I can certainly see how one would be a little grumpy after bein’ interrupted mid-nap.

I guess sleep because what reason would you have to be grumpy, except for having your nap interrupted and being asked to take a selfie.

You look sleepy not grumpy ! And even if you would look grumpy it is understandable ! If you would do this to your mom, just holding this thing in front of her face when she wakes up I wonder how her face would look like !
