Sunday Selfies: Week #266

When I asked for a volunteer to be your host today, anyone standing in the way would have been trampled as all the gang, but one, exited the room. Unfortunately the one kitty remaining was not interested in taking a selfie. She remained only because she knew she would have all my attention.

I attempted to cajole her into sitting quietly and taking a selfie, but she was having none of it. She only wanted to mark the iPad with her cheeks and make a batch of biscuits in my lap.

I finally got her to snap her selfie. Before I could even check it, she took off, leaving me with this blurry, half of a selfie to post.

Thanks, Astrid!



As the old saying goes, “Beggers can’t be choosers!” It does appear, however, that we can be losers. And it this case, we lost half of Astrid’s face.

Astrid, you were probably just going for an abstract selfie. You’re gorgeous no matter what! Purrs to all of you!

Astrid, I think that is just the purrfect selfie. you did a most excellent job–the Human think they’ve a right to be soooooooo picky. It is to laugh! given how very, very, VERY far they are from perfect themselves. I mean, your Mom doesn’t even know how to relax very good! Honestly, just send her over here for a day, I’ll learn her real fast.

Kissies to my Miss Misty May XOXOXO

Around here those kinds of selfies are quite common, MOL! We almost had one just like yours but then Pipo relented and gave a half decent one:)

Have a great week! Thanks for always hosting the Sunday Selfies each week!

It must be something with Torties, I have more blurry pictures of Leila than anyone else. Miss Astrid, you are beautiful, even if we only see half of that sweet face.

Meowser Astrid dear furiend. That is a purrty good selfie…. much better than anything Katsu does, which is one reason why I didn’t even look for him very hard this week… I think he copies Saphera, who, like the rest of your gang, runs from the camera.
Thank you for hosting today’s blog hop,

Half a face – even a blurry one, is better than none, especially as she is so lovely.


meowmeowmans September 15, 2019 at 12:12 am

Well, we may have lost half of Astrid’s face, but seeing her is always a win, of you ask us. 🙂

Thank you for hosting, sweet pals! XO
