Sunday Selfies: Week #89

In honor of National Pet Parents Day* I decided to include my mommy in my selfie. Once I had the timer set up, I held her down so she couldn’t bolt. I like to get up-close-and-personal so she can smell the stinky goodness on my breath and admire my handsomeness. It appears as if she is ignoring me, but that’s just not possible.  A 14-pound cat on one’s chest is impossible to ignore, especially when that cat starts chatting. I am a champion chatty catty!


Mommy and Mau Sunday Selfie


Wow, check out those toesies. Pretty terrific, don’t you think? I know you want to kiss them.

As far as my mommy goes: It’s a darn good thing I took this photo prior to yesterday afternoon and her falling smack on her face. She probably wouldn’t want to share a photo showing a big bruise on her chin. She is always just one step away from an accident, and yesterday she took one step too many…right off the edge of the cement pad where the pool sits. MOUSES!

Cat4-001Anyhoo, if you’d like to share a selfie with your mommy or daddy or grammy or grampy for the blog hop, we think that would be pretty cool.

So by now you know the purrcedure for hopping. The link-up for your photo is below as is the code to add the hop to your blog if you’d like. Mom just has one request if you do this: Please include a link in your post to The Cat on My Head and/or display our badge. Easy peasy!

And purrlease encourage your bloggy and Facebook friends to join in the fun. Remember, all anipals are welcome regardless of species. If you missed last week, Friends Furever shared dolphins and Kitty Cat Chronicles introduced us to the new members of their family, Sugar Gliders, Jubilee ad Sydney. You just never know who you might meet here on Sundays. It could turn out to be your new BFF.

I’m off to see what kind of mischief I can get up to.

Purrs and paw-pats, Mau (with special smooches for Allie)

* National Pet Parents Day, an unofficial national holiday, was created by Veterinary Pet Insurance (VPI) in 2007. The inspiration came from recognizing the majority of their policyholders considered their pets as members of their family.

That really is the epitome of sweetness. Love those pushed feet! Hope your chin heals up quick. I’m a prime-time klutz myself, so I know what you’re going through. I always seem to have a bruise somewhere!

Our Mama is always tripping on carpets here and falling and bruising her knees. What a clutz she is! Make sure you all give your Mama extra love and cuddles! We are sending heaps to her from all of us and from our Mama too with lots of hugs thrown in 🙂

What a sweet selfie! WE just love it. Most of the time we are more distant kitties. Mom wishes we loved hugs and kisses but we only give those out sparingly. Well when Mom gets one it means we’ve made her really earn it! Tee hee Happy Sunday Selfies.

OMC….Mau. It must be the week for mom to take tumbles. My mom fell on her bad knees on Thursday morning while out feeding one of her outside colonies. Good thing she didn’t fall on any cats….. bad thing is her knees are purple like your moms chin. Humans are so clumsy unlike us felines.
Hope your mom is doing better.
A heart full of love for my sweet Ms Lisbeth and purrs for all,

Oh dear – we hope your Mom’s fall didn’t hurt her too badly – cement is not “forgiving” ! Our selfie today is a LATE Earth Day Selfie – my Mom and Dad were out of town and Mom forgot to post THIS on the right day. Better late than never? When it comes to Mother Earth – late is better than never we say! Happy Sunday.

Love, Sammy
