Sunday Selfies: Week #168

My humans say I can be a little bitchy, er witchy! I do have a tendency to be hissy and growly when others get in my way. Because of this and the fact that Halloween is now just two days away, Mom couldn’t keep her paws off of my very lovely selfie. Pffft!


Lisbeth celebrates National Cat Day and Halloween.


To add insult to posting me in a witch’s had, I heard a rumor about a rude and unflattering thing Astrid said about me in her post yesterday. If anyone knows what that was, please let me know in the comments. Other than spilling their guts that it happened, no-one will tell me what she said.

Enough about Astrid. She’s not worth my time.

National Cat Day – USA

Today is National Cat Day, which is celebrated each year on October 29. It was created in 2005 by Colleen Paige, Pet Lifestyle Expert and Animal Welfare Advocate. Since its inception, National Cat Day has helped save the lives of more than one million cats.

Paige established this day in an effort to assist the public in recognizing the number of cats needing to be rescued. Additionally, the day encourages cat lovers to celebrate the cat(s) in their lives for their companionship and the unconditional love they willingly give.

The National Cat Day web-site lists 20 things we can do today to celebrate and help kitties. I’ll be spending extra time today snuggling with and giving all the Kitties Blue special attention and love. As we have a full house and cannot add any kitties to the family, I’ll be sending a donation to our favorite rescue, Barn Cat Buddies.

In conjunction with #NationalCatDay, BLUE BUFFALO is sponsoring the “Purr-fect Purr-sonalities” PHOTO CONTEST. You have until 11:59 pm (ET) tonight to enter. Winners will be notified by November 11th and announced on social media when all winners have responded.

To enter, log onto Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and include #BlueBuffalo and #NationalCatDay with your uploaded image of your cat, depicting their best PURRsonality trait.  Photo must be of your own cat. Once a photo is submitted, it cannot be changed or modified. To purrticipate, you must live in the 50 United States, the District of Columbia or Canada. You must be at least 18 years old at the time of entry.

Three “PURRfect PURRsonalities” winners may be featured on the Blue Buffalo Facebook page and will receive an assortment of Blue Buffalo products, Blue Gear and National Cat Day Gear.

Blog Hop

I cannot think of a better day to purrticipate in our Sunday Selfies blog than National Cat Day. And don’t forget to ask for some of your favorite treats as a reward for taking your selfie and in celebration of this special day. Also invite your friends to join us. The more the merrier.

Of course, you don’t need to be a cat to join in the fun. All anipals are welcome and encouraged to join the hop. If you are new to hopping, here are some guidelines:

  • 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.
  • You do not need to post on Sundays to join.
  • 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.

With purrs and paw-pats, Lisbeth (with kisses for my sweet boyfriend Charles)

Determined women are always called the B word, so just ignore that and wear your cute witch hat with pride.

Spitty the Kitty October 29, 2017 at 11:35 pm

First, we are so sorry we missed last week. *I* have been trying to be good, but the Human . . . well, you know. Second, I can’t BELIEVE what that naughty Astrid said about you. As if! Phffft. She deserves a Time Out. You are looking very lovely indeed today and I will be happy to deal directly with anykitty who thinks otherwise! XOXOXO

Harvey Button October 29, 2017 at 8:31 pm

We removed our reference to National Cat Day because someone whined about us putting it in and started quoting the rule book at us. So out it came.

We hope you enjoy Angus though!

Melissa & Mudpie October 29, 2017 at 7:21 pm

You’re an adorable little witch! We won’t repeat what your sister said about you because it isn’t true 🙂

While you look darling, we chose to pass on this day this year due to the list of rules that National Cat Day had for posting (which I posted in the Cats With Blogs group)…… of the rules was we were not allowed to use their logo without their permission…..or to post any of their content on our blogs…soooo, since they are being ridiculous, we chose to opt out of blogging about this day this year and not give them any further promotion.

Clooney October 29, 2017 at 4:15 pm

Hi Gang, Happy National Cat Day to you all! Lisbeth, we think you did a great job and are a good sport, nice one! Kisses and cuddles to my special Ladycat Giulietta…psst, I posted a special extra pic just for her.

xoxo Clooney

You make a beautiful witch. When you are as pretty as you it is OK to be witchy 🙂 Sorry we are skipping the selfies this week, I have a sick kitty. XO

You make a lovely witch, Lisbeth ! If Astrid said something rude or naughty, we think it’s not worth of repeating it or knowing it, isn’t it ? Purrs

McGuffy's Reader October 29, 2017 at 9:05 am

You are bewitching and beguiling. We are enchanted. But, of course, it is Cat Day. We celebrate all cats every day! In all fairness, we celebrate dogs, too. But, cats are a bit more insistent about it. *wink* Love you guys! xo

We happen to think you make a purrfectly adorable witch, Lisbeth! If you came trick-or-treating at our house, we’d give you all the treats. We’re afraid to tell you what Astrid said yesterday, lest you cast a spell on her. Oh, and happy National Cat Day!

Lisbeth, you are the most adorable witch ever. We’re not sure what Astrid said, but how bad could it be about a cute kitty like you!Would you believe our secretary did not help us write about National Cat Day? We’re embarrassed

Lisbeth, you look very fetching as a witch. Don’t worry about what Astrid said, it was just that she didn’t think your Mom would dare to put you in a real costume. That is good right!!!!! It sounds good to us, we don’t like wearing real costumes.

Oh Lisbeth we don’t listen to what Astrid says about you……maybe she’s just jealous? Maybe she wishes she could wear that witch hat and look as bewitching as you do? Whatever……point is on National Cat Day we should ALL be nice to each other. Hope you and all the Kitties Blue have a PEACEFUL and happy Sunday!

Hugs, Teddy

Miss Lisbeth we missed the post * cough cough * but give her the stink eye and you are all set OK?

Personally, we think you look perfectly fabulous in your hat and frame. We are just lucky mum is home long enough to post. She has been at work, or gardening, or at the pet expo and movie editing for the blog, and the Sunday Selfie just sneaked in under the wire! OK its more than one but still……

and we are having comment issues so let us know fife you can’t leave one.

Astrid made a remark for sure that should be kept secret else a kitty war might ensue…who needs that.
Just strut past her and give an evil eye…and maybe she will not send out insults about you anymore…and no you don’t look too big to fit into a costume:)
Oops.I let the cat out of the bag…

Your selfie bewitched me to divulge the secret, MOL!
I will join up to the selfie hop a bit later…along with my doggy brofurs.

Aww. I’m sure that isn’t true at all, Lisbeth, I mean we all can be a bit tetchy at times but not bitchy. Anyways I think you are the prettiest of witches in that hat. Paws up for you and your mom.

Prancer Pie October 29, 2017 at 1:29 am

You look absolutely adorable in your little hat, Lisbeth! There’s no way we could believe you would be anything but sweet!

Marv October 29, 2017 at 12:39 am

Dear Ms Lisbeth,
I think you do not look either bitchy or witchy! The hat looks very nice on you. Your Mommy did a great job! And I do think Astrid was a tad rude.

Lisbeth, you make a very nice looking witch. Just our opinion. 🙂

And yes, you do not want to know what Astrid said yesterday!
