Sunday Selfies: Week #119

I was incredulous when I discovered that our mom called me both a turkey and a hog yesterday. Then she had the audacity (yeah, I know some big words), to ask me to do the selfie today.

Being a Cat Scout of integrity and sworn to being helpful, I obliged her with several photos. And then what did she do? She selected one that looks just like a mug shot. If you think I am exaggerating, check it out for yourself.


turkey photos


The second photo she selected isn’t much better! It distinctly shows my displeasure with that first photo. There’s a super blurry one that she says looks as if I am giving her a paw gesture like the one humans use when they are really infuriated with another person. Again, I must reiterate that I am a Cat Scout and would NEVER do such a thing. I was merely moving my paw into position to wash it. I swear!

I did dress as a turkey for a party at Cat Scouts, and as I think I’m much cuter in that photo, I told mom she had to share it with you as well.

I think the turkey drumstick was a nice addition, don’t you?

Cat4-001This is our Sunday Selfie Blog Hop. As it is the last hop prior to Thanksgiving, feel free to share a Thanksgiving-themed photo…or not!

Last week we had a couple more purrticipants than the previous week, but our numbers have still plummeted. We hope, if you were once one of our selfie friends and have stopped submitting, you will return. We miss you, and we are sure those who follow the hop do as well. And invite all your anipal friends to join us.

The link to add your selfie is below as is the code to add the hop to your blog if you’d like. If it isn’t too inconvenient, will you please add our badge to your post and/or link back to The Cat on My Head?

Thanksgiving Day Surprise

We know lots of you will be busy this week traveling or preparing for the holiday, but please take a few minutes to drop by on Thanksgiving. We will have a huge surprise that day. And, it won’t be any of us acting like a turkey!

Purrs and paw-pats, Mauricio with lots of love and smooches to my fabulous wife Allie

OMC, that really does look like a mug shot! All you need is some numbers under your photo, and we’re not talking turkey drumstick numbers either!

BeadedTail November 21, 2016 at 1:22 pm

We think you’re a super cute turkey Mau!

Happy Sunday-Before-Thanksgiving, Blue Crew! Mauricio, you do sorta look just the eensiest bit thuggish there, but I am sure your good-boy CatScout self is underneath somewhere. You know, I know you’re *married* and all now, but did you ever think that your half-moustache is the exact photo-reverse of Katie Isabella’s??? That must *mean* something, don’t you think?
The Human isn’t going anywhere till after twelve on T-Giving (frankly, I don’t think she should leave me at all, but I lost that argument), so we’ll be by to check out the surprise!

Haha… But My Lil Bear wants to know if turkey tastes like chickens.

Please keep my mother’s cat Bibi in your prayers. She is 15 and may be going home. She needs a blood panel done to see if her CKD has progressed. She has been running am mild fever and won’t use her litter boxes… Also Silvia’s cat Narcisca has stopped eating.

Beautiful blog hop today!
Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Gabby The Tabby November 20, 2016 at 10:31 am

Gabby has taken to laying on her daddy, which requires his arms to hold her, so that he can’t get any work done. But he’s still super thankful to have such a loving little animal in his life.

Happy thanksgiving to all you guys and gals and kitties and puppies and other pets out there!

Remember: It’s perfectly fine to give your kitty some Turkey! Just make sure that it doesn’t have any large bones in it, and that if it’s cooked you don’t give your kitty any turkey that’s been seasoned! Kitties’ little kidneys don’t process salt very well, and that can lead to problems.

Otherwise, a little Turkey should be just fine for baby on Turkey Day!

We absolutely loved the turkey picture;. Your two selfies are quite nice tho. You are very handsome and don’t give yourself enough credit. We’ll try to get back on board one of these days. We kind of stopped coming because the blog hop was so large and took way too much time to go around to see everyone.

Oh poor Mau you are not a turkey or a hog even though mom has you in a turkey outfit. I bet she was kidding. She loves you so much and bet she was fooling around. You photos do not look like mug shots. You are showing us your beautiful front face view and profile. I think you should hire an agent and do some modeling. You will make extra $$$$ appearing in magazines and stuff. Happy Selfie Sunday to you and all at your place.

That turkey picture is really cute! And you’re right–that one photo does look like a mug shot, but at least your mom made it look kind of cute by putting it in that Polaroid, right? Right? We’ve never done Sunday Selfies before, but we’ll get the Real Cats to jump in next week!
