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.


Lilly Olivia is the Sunday Selfies host for the last hop of 2017.


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.

  • The link to add your selfie to the hop is below.
  • 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.
  • Please be so kind as to display our badge and/or link to The Cat on My Head.

Thanks for hopping. Wishing you every blessing and happiness in the Mew Year.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia

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!

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.


ERin the Cat, Princess December 31, 2017 at 1:24 am

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 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!


Meows, purrs, hugs and MOLs are greatly appreciated. Please no hissing, spitting or scratching unless you want one of us to whap you!
