Sunday Selfies: Week #177
My fursibs indicated yesterday that they thought I would be uncooperative and refuse to do a selfie for the last hop of 2017. I couldn’t let them be right, so here I am. Of course, being Lily Olivia and a Crotchety Cougar, I had to be a bit of a stinker and close my eyes. That means I didn’t do a very good job of lining up the shot and cut off one of my ears almost entirely. I did even worse on the second photo and cut off part of my nose as well. So, this may not be purrfect, but it’s the best you are going to get.
Mew Year’s Resolutions
This seems like the appropriate time to share our Mew Year’s Resolutions. Most of these are not new. We have shared them previously, but we are certain some of you have not seen them. And we made a few changes, as well as an addition, for 2017.
1. Get more scritches.
2. Get more belly rubs.
3. Get more treats and nip.
4. Always come when called unless napping, playing, eating, watching bird TV, day dreaming or participating in other cat-approved activities.
5. If in, demand to go out.
6. If out, demand to come in.
7. Refrain from washing our butts in front of company unless it is an emergency.
8. Refrain from eating Mom’s flowers when she’s watching.
9. Take up as much space in the humans’ bed as possible by sleeping east/west instead of north/south.
10. Clear the kitchen counters of all items whenever possible.
11. Pretend to be deaf whenever a human is speaking to us.
12. Always help Mom with her crossword puzzles, blogging and coloring.
13. Put our paws down and not allow Mom and Dad to adopt any additional kitties.
Time to Hop
Last week’s blog hop was really well attended; though, it occurred on Christmas Eve. For that we all want to thank you from the bottom of our furry little hearts. Today, of course, is a holiday as well, but hopefully you will not start celebrating until later this evening.
If you are new to hopping, here are a few tips to help you join our hop.

- You also will find below the code to use if you’d like the hop to appear on your blog.
- Posting on Sundays is not necessary to join.
- You do not need to be a cat to enter. All anipals are welcome regardless of species.
- The hop remains open for entries through Thursday midnight.

Thanks for hopping. Wishing you every blessing and happiness in the Mew Year.
Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia

Lily Olivia we all agree that is a lovely selfie of you and we are glad you shared it with all of us! Happy Mew Year’s Eve to everyone and hope 2018 is kinder and gentler on all of us.
Such a lovely selfie, Lily Olivia! And all of the Mew Year’s Resolutions are pawsome! 😀 Happy 2018!
Happy New Year! May all your dreams come true in 2018.
That is a beautiful selfie. I love your resolutions too.And don’t forget to be crotchety 🙂 XO
You are so cute and your furs are beautious!
That’s a great selfie, Lily Olivia. Us cats have to get our naps in today because it will get noisy later on tonight. Those are some good resolutions too. We don’t usually make any because we think we’re purrfect just the way we are. 😉 Happy New Year’s Eve!
Hey dere fellow Crotchety Cougar! Happy Mew Yearz and Thanky Thanks fur comin to mah Gotcha Dayz. You allz da bestezt
Lovin’ your New Year List (thank U!) and I have two favorites: 8 and 9. Re #9 you are correct it is verrrry important to use up a large portion of the bed. That way they know who’s in charge. (Paprika does not understand this, and still believes in bedtime manners. )
Re #8, flowers consumption, although I don’t personally like them, I DO take a bite or two WHEN my human is around & doing something I don’t like. Like petting Paprika. Or being late for my dinner. I then make a lot of noise, take a deliberate loud crunchy bite while looking meaningfully at human. Works every time!

We like your resolutions, we might use some of them for ourselves!
I love your selfie, Lily Olivia! And you guys have a great list of resolutions too. Wishing you all a very happy new year! 🙂
Lily Olivia you are absolutely the best and may we wish you a wonderful 2018 Madam Crotchety Cougar!
Lily Olivia I think you definitely listed every possibility for a great list of resolutions. I’ve never made a resolution before but I am going to TRY to make AND keep some! Thanks for the inspiration – AND thanks to Kitties Blue for this past year of selfies – here’s to LOTS MORE!!
Love and Happy New Year
Binga says she is not paying any attention to resolution #7! Happy New Year’s Eve – see you in 2018!
Luv your resolushuns!
Get more belly rubs is a great New Years Resolution!! I think I’ll add that one to my list 😉
Lots of licks and good wishes for the year ahead,
Lovely Lily Olivia, your resolutions are on point! We think us kits could adopt the same resolutions – if we weren’t so lazy. MOL!
Our Mom is sending New Year’s greetings to all of you and hoping your 2018 is a great one.
Nice choice of resolutions, but I cant see any about not awakening you staff at 2am for meals? Not that I’ll be keeping that one myself, but it’s the thought that counts MOL
Lily O, we loved your New Year’s Resolutions and swear…yes swear…they will also be ours.
Shoko and Kali
Lily Olivia! I think your selfie is – well – Marvelous! And being a Crochety Cougar is badge of Honour! I would treat with all the respect you deserve to be given. Is it OK if I use parts of you list for mine? You guys captured just about everything!
Lily Olivia, those selfies of yours have CHARACTER. Wonderful job. And such excellent resolutions, gang! #9 and #11 are ones that all kitties will get behind. 🙂
Thank you for hosting, as always, sweet pals. We love hopping along every week, and we love YOU!
