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!


Lily's Sunday Selfie X Eight


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.


Lily's Sunday Selfie X Eight


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

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.

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.

Raven January 24, 2016 at 5:44 pm

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.

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!

Christy Paws January 24, 2016 at 1:59 pm

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 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.

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!
