Sunday Selfies: Week #250

I know I fooled many of you with my snoozy photo on Friday into thinking I am a sweet girl. And I am…to our humans.

Today, however, after a few weeks of relative quiet co-existence, Astrid and I had a bit of a dust-up. I hadn’t puffed up my tail really big in a long time, and I have to say, “It felt great!” Mom is afraid this will now cause Astrid to retreat back into herself. I certainly hope so. She’s been taking too many liberties, like coming upstairs in the mornings and snuggling with Mom in the bed. And she’s been spending lots of time on the catio. I just needed to put her in her place.

Mom got really mad at me, and so she is forcing me to do the selfie today. I did refuse to look at the camera when I snapped this. And I do look a bit as if I have been chastised. Since I can’t hear what Mom is saying, I can imagine anything I like. I am fairly certain, however, that she said, “Misty May, you are the most beautiful, smart and wonderful cat in the world,”


Sunday Selfies - Misty May



I’m not the only one of us who has been misbehaving. Our two Cat Scouts, Mau and Cooper Murphy, have been getting after each other. They usually have a wrasslin’ match before meals, but the last few days, they have escalated into snaring and neck biting. Mom is not certain what is causing the discord. It could be due to our dad being out of town. Mom, however, thinks its the heat and humidity. She knows the oppressiveness of it is making her grumpy. 

As I dictate this, we are having a huge thunderstorm with heavy rain. Here’s hoping that knocks down some of the humidity.

Let’s Hop

Now that I have shared my selfie, it is time for you to show off just how precious and adorable you are.

To prevent Mom from getting any more miffed at me than she already is, I am posting those hopping tips for any newcomers.

  • 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.
  • Take the opportunity to visit some of the other hop-alongs and make some new friends or reconnect with some old ones.

Thanks to everyone who continues to support and join us for our weekly hop. And welcome to all those who are joining us for the first time.

Have a terrific easy Sunday and holiday weekend.

Purrs and paw-pats, Misty May

Unquestionably imagine that that you said. Your favourite reason seemed to be at the
net the easiest factor to take into account of. I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as other people think about concerns that they plainly don’t
recognise about. You managed to hit the nail
upon the top as well as outlined out the entire thing with no need side-effects
, folks could take a signal. Will likely be again to get more.
Thank you

Oh-Oh, you are having issues?? We hope Astrid will not be too adversely affected by your doings, Misty May…

We hope Mau an CooperM behave better,t oo. For sure t might br the lack of the daddy, and the heat making for a perceived feeling of stress so you act out.

Hope the storms relieve some of the opressive heat, and that they won’t be too severe either.

Oppressive weather can get us all feeling all whappy paw – here’s hoping that storm will relieve the humidity for you.

Sandee May 26, 2019 at 9:26 am

All kitties are purrfect, but sometimes they don’t get along. I’m guessing if dad were home all would be right with the world.

Have a purrfect Sunday Selfies. My best to your mom. ♥

Misty May, we know us cats feel the need to keep each other in line, but maybe you should cut Astrid some slack. After all, she’s not as brave as you and it really isn’t a fair fight. 😉 You did take a good selfie. Stay cool if you can!

You are a beautiful girl. Just try to be nice. Our tortie, Penny is the one who goes after other kitties. I blame fights like that on the moon and planets. Thanks for hosting. Have a great day! XO

Hope the household calms down soon. We have had a few of those with Rumpy recently. We forgive him because he feels punk due to his asthma. Wonderful selfie Misty Mae.

Ms. Misty May, you look very contemplative, yet beautiful and feeling the occasional need to put siblings in place using the whacky-paw is normal – purrticularly in stormy weather.
Thank you for hosting this hop. Hopefully, the coming week will have less oppressive weather.

What a wonderful selfie, and I think what you think you heard your mom say is absolutely 100% exactly what she said!

Teddy May 26, 2019 at 4:54 am

We had a whopper of a storm come through last night too – I think all that “electricity and energy” in the air makes everyone a little wacky! I hope today everybody at your house will be calm, cool, and collected. No more sniping and swiping! Just enjoy your Sunday.

Hugs, Teddy

Justin and 29 yr old Mom were driving home in Falcon Colorado. This was 35 years ago ! It was J…It was June 20, 1995. Mom and tiny Justin ran and hid deep under their tall front porch. They and alhey and all pets were safe! Houses and broken windows yup, windows! Plusses, Barns, too , can can be fixall be fixed! Mom and tiny Justin got supeout of their old truck and got deep into the” 0L-Shape that the corner between the House and Garage made!! Mom heard the Voice of GOD. He told Mom to get out of the Truck! She was bending over low because the Tornado was throwing Sand! Mg Sand!! Mom saw the huge opening deep under the very Tall Front Porch! As soon as they were safe under lying flat, the Tornado HIT….Moms old Truck was dragged out of the driveway into the middle of Moms Front Yard! . The Conclusion is GET out of Vehicles and lie as low and deep as possible!! Loves, Mango and Mom! PS Its Mango, and Misty May , I wants to sees your PUFFED UP TAIL FURRS!
