It has turned colder than usual here for early autumn. Consequently, my lap has become the prime, most-desired kitty napping spot. I am not complaining as their little, hot bodies are keeping me as warm as I am keeping them. Yesterday my lap saw more than the usual activity. Astrid, Fiona, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio and Calista Jo took turns burrowing in for snoozes. Lily Olivia was the only one who stayed awake long enough and was agreeable to taking some Sunday Selfies. She has taken better ones, but the light was all wrong. We had a large window behind us and a light directly over our heads.

Of course, being the professional she is, she snapped a large number from various angles. These were the most interesting of the lot. And since the photos themselves would otherwise qualify as photo fails, I turned them into an arty collage with the hope of distracting you all from the fuzzy quality.

I think most selfies are photo fails cos who can take their own picture unless the camera has a viewfinder on each side. Of course celebs and cats have purrfected them.

Whee! Meowmy let us make selfies even though she has to go to work in a few minutes!

What fun…though as you can see, we were not too impressed with her saying that we could do this in the middle of us taking a nap…MOL!

Those selfies are wonderful! Love the collage 🙂 Lily Olivia, you are such a pretty girl. You remind me of my Angel Delilah.
It has gotten chilly here too. Like you, I love it because it means I get more kitty cuddle time. As I type this, Sampy is burrowed underneath the blanket I have covering me, curled into a ball in my lap. I don’t if I’ll ever get up again! He has woken up enough to tell me to pass this message onto Astrid: “I’m blowing you as many kisses as there are leaves covering our back yard (that’s a lot!). I hope you can catch them all! Purrs and Love, Sampy”
