Sunday Selfies Blog Hop: Week #216

I am a pest! You only need to ask Mom or Dad Tom. They will attest to this. As I do most days, I spent Caturday sitting right in Mom’s face whining and nudging and walking on the computer. I know I should have used a bit of restraint, as she was trying to do a bit of visiting on our behalf. I can be relentless, however, when I set my mind to it.

Yesterday that got me into trouble. Since I wouldn’t go away, I was forced into taking selfie after selfie after selfie until I finally got a decent, though out-of-focus, one. I am certain the less than satisfactory ones will eventually show up as Caturday Art.

So that is how I came to be your host today.


Sunday Selfies - Misty May


Another Good-Bye

I have the sad responsibility of wishing farewell to another friend.  The handsome ginger, Rusty, from Jan’s Funny Farm received his wings on Wednesday. If you have not visited to leave your condolences, please click on the link above.

Rest in Peace Rusty


Blog Hop

Now it’s time to share your selfie and hop with us. Here are those hopping tips that we post each week.

  • 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.

Purrs and paw-pats, Misty May

p.s. After last Sunday’s fiasco with our post, we were hoping all our problems were in the past. We have noticed, however, that on many of your blogs, where we used to comment without a problem, our comments are not showing up. We suspect they are going to spam. This may be because we have added an SSL certificate to the site.

Misty May, you took a terrific selfie, and we know all about cats who would rather be pests than take a quiet nap somewhere! Manny jumps on the table, just to whack at my crossword puzzle pen.

We almost missed Selfie Sunday! That’s how busy we’ve been. We were also so sad to hear about Rusty.

That’s a beautiful selfie!


Jackie Avery September 30, 2018 at 5:07 pm

I think I forgot to use my own name and used “Memories”. I will be in your spam folder!


Memories of Eric and Flynn September 30, 2018 at 5:05 pm

That is a lovely selfie. Eric was the same walking backwards and forwards across the keyboard and in front of the monitor. I am also sad about Rusty.


Charles Huss September 30, 2018 at 4:51 pm

I always thought pest and cat meant the same thing. Anyway, I think it is a great selfie and I don’t notice it being out of focus.

Ma petite chou, you look GLORIOUS! You even have a sort of fiery halo around your beauteous furry head! No one could *possibly* call you a pest! What a terrible insult to your honor. I will bring my bloody wrath upon the perpetrator of any such . . . oh wait, what? It was your MOM??? I don’t know what she can possibly be referring to! You are 100% purrfect. XOXOXO


Dalton/Angel-MrJackFreckles/Pipo & Angel-Minko September 30, 2018 at 1:31 pm

Your ‘pest’ behavior sure made for a great selfie, MistyMay!
I, Pipo, am told that I too am a pest…sheesh, don’t our peeps know we are tryingto tell them how much we love them and that for the love in return all we need is lots of attention? MOL!

Rusty will truly be missed, he was such a purrsonality.

MOL…when we need attention we have to make sure we get it, right Misty May😸Pawkisses for a wonderful Sunday🐾😽💞


Comedy Plus September 30, 2018 at 12:51 pm

So you got on moms nerves yesterday. Shame on you. Kitties do what kitties do. Tell mom you were just trying to tell her something. That might work.

What a shame about Rusty. Have already been over and left my condolences. Too many babies going to the bridge.

Have a purrfect day. Scritches to all the kitties and my best to your peeps. ♥

We were deeply sadden by the passage of Rusty to the RB, too many old friends leaving us these days.
Misty May that is a lovely selfie of you and the flower border is beautiful, just like you.


Athena September 30, 2018 at 12:02 pm

So sad about Rusty.

Lovely selfie!

Misty May you did a MUCH better selfie than me…. I was busy reading a wonderful new book, so forgot to look at the camera.


Ellen Pilch September 30, 2018 at 9:14 am

Very sad about Rusty. There have been so many losses lately. That is a beautiful selfie and I doubt you are a pest. Thanks for hosting. XO


Brian Frum September 30, 2018 at 8:18 am

That was a most beautiful selfie Misty May, you’re a sweetie!


The Island Cats September 30, 2018 at 8:15 am

Being a pest paid off, Misty May. That’s a purrfect selfie.

Scylla is the pest here and she says you haven’t earned your PEST merit badge until you have dumped hot coffee on your Mom without spilling a drop on you. She has purrfected the technique.

Who knew the bad kitty club had badges too.

We were very sad when we read about Rusty. They have had too many losses.

That’s so sad that Rusty is gone. We hadn’t heard and will go visit Jan.
Lovely selfie, Misty May.

The Menagerie Mom September 30, 2018 at 6:13 am

That’s exactly how I get attention when I want it, too, MIsty May! I stomp all over my human, sit on her, sit on the computer, and even chew on the computer! Sometimes humans just need to be reminded that us kitties deserve attention 30 hours of the day. I’m sorry that got you forced into selfie duty, though, Misty May. Then again, you look stunning! Purrs, Thimble

Our purrs and prayers are with Rusty’s mom Jan.


Teddy September 30, 2018 at 6:12 am

Oh Misty May, you couldn’t possibly be a real PEST… might ask for attention a lot but then sometimes we NEED that! I bet by now your Mom knows that’s just your way. I’m sure it’s hard to resist you too. I think your selfie turned out GREAT!

Hugs, Teddy

Great selfie. Mummy is ALWAYS taking photos of us. Sometimes we have to hide from her so we don’t have the photomaker stuffed in our faces. Although when she finds us she then takes MORE photos because we hid so well.

Gattina September 30, 2018 at 4:18 am

Your selfie is very cute, despite the fact that you are a pest (according to your mum only) my cats are all angels that’s at least what they think !

Summer September 30, 2018 at 3:18 am

I like your selfie, Misty May! Why do you all treat your selfies like such a chore? I love doing mine every week, and sometimes when we wait until the last moment (like this week), I worry that we’ll never get around to it!

Yes I was doing all that last night, three times in fact so Mrs H eventually fed me at the usual time. Her own fault for disposing of the mouse in the house!
Gentle purrs for Rusty and his family…


Canadian Cats September 30, 2018 at 12:16 am

Well, we think you are gorgeous and all mom’s need to be whined at and cajoled every once in awhile to give us the proper attention we so ricly deserve.

We are really sad about Rusty going to the Bridge. He was a great cat, and we will miss him forever.

Nice selfie, Misty May. We’d say it was worth it to have to host if you got to stay all up in Mom’s face all day. 🙂


Meows, purrs, hugs and MOLs are greatly appreciated. Please no hissing, spitting or scratching unless you want one of us to whap you!
