Sunday Selfies: Week 76
I took a purrfectly good selfie this week. It ‘s only slightly out of focus. I didn’t cut any impawtant bits off. And the lighting was pretty good. I might look a tad grumpy, but grumpy is my normal expression. Everyone should know that by now.
So why does Mom feel like she has to tinker with a totally acceptable selfie? We continue to remind her that Caturday is the day to be arty. Just look what she did to me this week. I did such a great job getting my face centered in the frame and then she cuts off my ears and chin. And who wants to see her crappy cropping job eight times. Pffft!
I have convinced her that if she is going to do something funky to our Sunday Selfie photos that she must show the original as well.
Much better, don’t you agree?
Mom’s excuse for the tinkering with my photo is that she wanted to use the free collage maker from FotoJet. She’d received four or five requests from the developer, PearlMountain Technology, to try it and review it on the blog. She looked at the app a few times but just never found anything that appealed to her. After further investigation today and the realization that she could delete or change the pre-printed messages on their collage templates, she decided to give it a try. While checking out the app, she discovered that they have some really great stickers/clip art that will work well for Cat Scout creations. She’s certain she will make good use of the app in the future.
If you haven’t snapped your selfie yet, you still have plenty of time. In fact, even if you don’t have it ready to post today, the blog hop stays open for five days. As always, if you have difficulty entering your link or if it doesn’t post correctly, just let us know in a comment. Mom will enter it for you. If you’d like to include the hop on your blog, the link is below. Our only request is that you link back to The Cat on My Head and/or display our badge.
Looking forward to seeing lots of submissions this week.
Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia
That’s a great selfie, Lily Olivia. And your mom did great art work. Hope you’re feeling great!
You did a gweat job and look very bootyful. Have a gweat day.

You look lovely in your cloned collage Lily Olivia! We think Leo would have liked it very much 🙂
Love and hugs to your Mama. We still have her and Fiona in our thoughts and we are hoping Fiona is eating more now.
the critters in the cottage xo
Lily Olivia, I think that is a purrfect selfie. I wish I had even half the selfie skills you have. Purrs!
I don’t know why she had to mess with perfection. You need to reign her in.
Very cool. You inspire me. I need to be able to do this. XO ❤
Those humans, they just can’t help themselves. Tinkering is a *whispers* ADDICTION!
Your selfie is purr-fect and I like how your mom gets artsy with your selfies too!
I think I have to agree with you and say that your original selfie is perfect and didn’t need any human tinkering. But her tinkering had a benefit of finding more creative ways to share you with the world.
Teddy and Jack just put up with me, too. Mama’s just like to show off their catkids.
We cats are forever indulging our humans. They have so many quirks! But it’s obvious they adore us – how could they not? Be gentle with your Mom – she just can’t get enough of your lovely face! 🙂

I need to tinker with some apps like that. I like the idea of turning a photo I might normally consign to the scrap heap into something really cool. Thanks for the inspiration!

I agree that your selfie was quite excellent and didn’t need any tinkering. At least your mom had a reason for monkeying with it.
I think you look lovely in both the collage and the original. My assistant likes to tinker with photos, too. Silly humans.
Love the selfie & bravo to your mom for figuring out a way to make it 8 times better and do a review, too!
Typical humans to play around with purrfectly good selfies !!
And of course our mom-person will check that app out too *sigh*
Lots of Lily Olivia’s is soooo great!
Have a wonderful Sunday…

I liked the original selfie, but it was very clever of your mom to turn it into an opportunity to test that program and multiply your pretty face.
Who’s the prettiest girl?you are,xx Speedy
Very interesting. May have to give it a try. So many of you proves just how gorgeous and pawsome you are!
Lily Olivia your purrsonal selfie is lovely as is. Your Mom whacked off your ears for catniss sake.
Lily Olivia we love your photo and your collage!
YOu are always beautiful.
Happy Sunday Selfie!
Lily Olivia, the lady and I are both suckers for a grumpy face but we think you’re very pretty.
Nice selfie, and nice collage ! Purrs
Lily Olivia, you are so pretty. I like the original and the artsy version of your selfie.
Very interesting collage of your beautiful selfie!
MOL but it does make your selfie look pretty cool 😉
That’s a mighty fine selfie and being artsy is pretty cool too!
It is always wonderful seeing selfless of the beautiful Kitties Blue ladies. Especially the stunning love of my life… Ms Lisbeth Blue.
Stay warm and safe all. Sending lots of love and special smooches to my love,
That looks like a fun app!
That was pretty interesting, Lily Olivia!
We like the artwork but we also liked seeing ALL of you!! We used FotoJet for the first time yesterday.

Our human, Carol, has been a busy girl since we saw your “Octo-Olivia” (8 of you!) collage /fotojet program and because we love collage programs! So we just tried it out and it’s lots of fun–there are many collages including a valentines day one, which we did, using different pix of US. We’ll post it in Caturday art shortly! Thanx for posting this!
Lily Olivia you look mighty fine, even though the human tried to lop off bits of your face!! FotoJet is another photo editor we’ve not heard of!! Must check it out! 🙂 xoxox
Athena and Marie
I think your mom did a great job again, Lily Olivia and seeing you in eightfold makes it even better 🙂 Pawkisses for a wonderful day 🙂 <3
Lily Olivia I think you look just lovely in your selfie….grumpy? No! If you are a tiny bit grumpy I can’t blame you – after all we just got through over two feet of icky snow falling and I don’t know about you but I’m TIRED of seeing WHITE out my window! Happy Sunday……..my selfie didn’t show up again when I entered it but I’m sure it’s just taking its’ time getting here…..HAHAHA
That is a lovely selfie, Lily Olivia, both before and after.
Its a beautiful octo-selfie!!
Humans always think they can improve on things – they are just that way.
That’s a nice selfie of you and then the collage ! very nice !
Well, L-O, that collage is nice since there are so many of you and all, but you look like a Christmas ornament when it’s getting closer to Valentine’s Day. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, MOL! XOXO
Why that is furry clevfur to have an eight in one selfie…an octet of you, sweet Lily Olivia!
Your mom is very artistic with your selfie. Can you get our human to exert some effort in our selfie presentation?
Well, we got to see your pretty face 9 times in this post. Mom failed with our selfie today, so you can hardly see me! Bah.
We never get tired of seeing that pretty face, Lily Olivia! It is so very beautiful with all those gorgeous colors!
Hope you have a great Sunday.
But…we got to see you NINE times, altogether! One for each life. So that’s a win, we think!
We see that artwork Mom did as a trade off, Lily Olivia. She may have cut off your ears and chin, but WE get to see your beautiful face EIGHT times. Just saying. 🙂
