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.

Oh I love this collage! Cat selfies are the best selfies ever!

Cathy Keisha October 6, 2014 at 9:15 pm

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.

Nothing wrong with those selfies. Such a beautiful face! 🙂

Pipo &Minko ~ WeBeesSiameezers October 5, 2014 at 1:45 pm

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!

Kitty Cat Chronicles October 5, 2014 at 12:42 pm

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”

P.S. I’m wondering if you got my email I sent yesterday? I know it’s only been a day, but I have been excited to hear from you. (It pertains to Barkworld and to the fact that you will be in Atlanta in a few weeks!)

I love using collage for our kitty photos, such a fun way to share and a great way to show off Sabrina up to her catantics, she’s always up to something!!! Have a great day, thanks for the party!

Christy Paws October 5, 2014 at 8:55 am

If it ever gets colder here, some of the other kitties will be trying to squeeze into mom’s lap too, but I am the queen of the lap. I love your selfies and collage, Lily Olivia!

Annie October 5, 2014 at 8:53 am

Lilly’s selfies are great! I love seeing all her colors close up.

How nice to have lap kitties! I shudder to think how cold it will have to get here before I get a lap kitty.

Bailey Boat Cat October 5, 2014 at 8:51 am
