Sunday Selfies: Week #419


Grey cat is hiding from kittens amidst stored blankets.


When the kittens are having their daily playtime, Kizmet often joins them. Yesterday they were exceptionally rambunctious, and this was Kizmet’s defense. She tried hiding from them by climbing into the cabinet where we keep extra blankets. She decided it would be a purrfect place to snap her selfie.

A second photo exists that Kizmet and I think you’ll really want to see. I’ll share it on Wednesday, so please drop in again then.

Your Turn to Share

Kizmet and all her housemates are anxious to see your selfies. We all know they’ll be exceptional and make us smile. If you get it done quickly, you’ll have the entire day to enjoy your easy and cuddle with your humans. Of course, if you cannot participate today, you can join us anytime through Thursday.

Thanks to everyone who joins our hop, leaves comments, follows and supports us!

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day

Rainbow Bridge Day

Today is also Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day, which was started in 2013 by Deb Barnes (Zee & Zoey’s Chronicles) in memory of her kitty, Mr. Jazz. It is a day to remember and honor all our family and friends with fur, feathers or fins to whom we have said farewell.

Many of our fur kids received their wings long before I began this blog, and today I am remembering them: Our dogs, Smack and Poppy, and cats, Skooter, Steamer, Daphne, Thelma, Louise, Chloe, Twinkle, Madison and MacKenzie. I also will be thinking fondly of those Kitties Blue who have passed since the inception of The Cat on My Head: Fiona, Lily Olivia, Mauricio and Giulietta. I will be remembering Mau’s wife, Allie, and Lisbeth’s boyfriend, Charles, as well.

You can find photos for all but Charles and dogs, Poppy and Smack, on The Felines page, which is on the menu bar at the top of this page.

Dad Tom and I have cherished and loved each and every one of our fur kids and remember them fondly.

Kitties Blue send purrs, and I send hugs and prayers to everyone who is remembering a beloved furred, finned, or feathered family member today.

Thanks for joining us. We appreciate each of you.

I will visit the babies who came before on your Feline Page and I remember the ones who gained wings after the blog began.

I am enjoying the kittens and Kizmet is like the teenager who gets tired of the new toddlers in the hose!

That’s the purrfect hiding spot!

Kizmet, we just love that picture of you, all surrounded by blankets! We missed remembrance day, but we know everyone remembers their beloved friends/family members all year long. Riley’s the only one of us dogs here who has lost a pack member, so we’ll say a special pawrayer with him tonight for those who went before us. XOXOX Xena, Lucy and Chia

I love your selfie you looks so cute (and it’s a potential entry for next year’s CWA!!) You look really sweet.

We don’t celebrate Rainbow Bridge Memorial Day because it was founded the year Dash was killed. My heart is never in it.

Kizmet that looks like the purrfect hiding spot. Whiskers the Wonder Cat used to hide in the bathroom cabinet on top of the bath towels. He was a Hemingway Cat so he could open doors.

That’s a great selfie, Kizmet. We, too, like to hide in the closet effurry once in a while. In fact, Trixie does it several times a day (mol).

Kizmet is one smart kitty. I mean if you want to take a selfie you have to isolate yourself from any pawsible photobombers — and kittens are the worst for that kind of thing. The selfie turned out purrfectly, so well done!


Charles Huss August 28, 2022 at 6:33 am

That photo is worthy of hanging on a wall.

Kizmet that’s a great spot to get away from those crazy kittens for a bit. I’m sure they’re fun to play with but a girl needs her “Z’s” too! We remember Angel Sammy ALL the time but today especially. Gone but NEVER forgotten. Happy Sunday!

Love, Teddy

Cute selfie, Kizmet, and a strategic way to get a little break from kitten whirlwinds. Hugs and purrs from all this remembering furkids today who have gone to the Bridge. Though I’m unable at the moment to make a new blog post about them, I too am missing so many.

Kizmet, that is a nice selfie, and a great hiding place. We hope you at least got a little peace and quiet from the kittens under there.

Lots of purrs and prayers to you as you remember your always loved and never forgotten angels. XO

Meows, purrs, hugs and MOLs are greatly appreciated. Please no hissing, spitting or scratching unless you want one of us to whap you!
