Sunday Selfies: Week #332


my first selfie


This really is my very first selfie. Who knew I would be so good at this?

Not only is this my very fist selfie, but it also is going to be my very first Christmas. If those two things aren’t exciting enough, yesterday was my Gotcha Day!

My name is Kizmet, and I am the newest member of the Kitties Blue family. I do not recognize my name yet, as I just received it yesterday. My original name was Janet. It seems that is also my new mom’s name. When she saw me on PetFinder, she said it was kismet; thus, my new name but with an unusual spelling.

There’s lots more to know about me, but I will save that for Thankful Thursday. My mom said I can tell you all about myself then.

These are two photos my new dad took just prior to my release.


Time to Hop

Mom says I am the host of this blog hop. I am not certain what a blog hop is. I am certain she’ll eventually explain it to me. Whatever it is, she told me to tell you that you don’t have to post today, and you can join us anytime through Thursday. Sounds good to me.

I am looking forward to getting to know all of you.

Purrs and paw-pats, Kizmet (formerly known as Janet)

That’s funny that you had the same name as your new mum ! Your first selfie is really very nice ! You are a good model !


Peaches and Paprika December 20, 2020 at 4:42 am

Dear Kizmet/Janet, welcome! And we CAN relate to the RELEASE scenario since we were just reliving our own “cages” experience and those bars which we (and you) have no longer … that’s major stuff. Anyway, just to let you know, Family Blue will be very NICE to you…you are one lucky cat. Although we don’t know if it was fair for them to put you to work so soon make you host a blog hop your first week. Child (kitten) labor?


Teddy December 20, 2020 at 4:27 am

Kizmet you are one lucky girl – found your way to the best place EVER – a house full of Blue Kitties and now you are one! You’re going to have so much fun getting to know your new family. I’m so happy you have your forever home – it’s the BEST Christmas present you could have received and I know your new Mom and Dad feel the same way. You certainly managed to rock your first Selfie!

Hugs, Teddy
