Sunday Selfies: Week #62

We have a guest host today. He visited the catio a few days ago, and we kitties were fascinated with this unusual creature. First we want to share a couple of photos of Fiona and Lisbeth with the visitor.

Can you tell what this is? We’d never seen one before, so our humans had to tell us. And before he took his selfie, he and Lisbeth had quite a “game” of smacking paws—both getting in some pretty good smacks. Lisbeth, however, won the battle when she took him in her mouth and shook and shook and shook him. (Sorry, no photos of these two events. Our Dad had gone inside with the camera, and Mom was the only one there to witness these events.)

To Mom and Dad’s surprise, our guest survived, and Dad removed him from the catio. That’s when he snapped his selfie. We’d like to introduce you to this week’s guest host: Mr. Praying Mantis.


Praying Mantis


Bet y’all want to know what kind of unusual visitors we had last week. All Fur One and One Fur all introduced us to Eddy the Echidna. Austin from Catachresis shared a bedraggled bee. PepiSmartDog, who we can always rely on to share an unusual critter with us, posted a selfie of the Bush Stone Curlew, a ground dwelling bird unique to Australia. We can’t wait to see what other unusual critters join the hop this week.

Cat4-001Our weekly blog hop is open to all critters (and their humans should they desire to include themselves). You can enter your link below to join us and also grab the code to include the hop on your blog. If you would like to do this, please link back to The Cat on My Head and/or display our badge. Each week, Kitties Blue tries to visit as many of you as possible. Some weeks we get to all of your blogs and some weeks we don’t. It’s all dependent on the typist’s schedule for the week. Nonetheless, we appreciate everyone who supports and pawticipates in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. We consider each of you a good friend!
