Sunday Selfies: Week #167

Our mom was reeling with incredulity when three of us came forward and volunteered to take selfies for today’s post. Of course, she selected the ones I took. After all I am the cutest! She has saved the others in her Sunday Selfies folder for future posts.



I wish someone would tell her that Halloween is still 10 days away. I would have liked a nice pastel frame to show off my magnificent tortieness, but alas, I am at her mercy when it comes to how my photos are displayed. I’ve heard a rumor that I may find Halloween particularly distasteful this year, and I have seen why. Mom has purchased an actual tortie-sized Halloween costume that she thinks she’s going to convince me to wear. I think some zombie must have eaten her brain, as that ain’t ever going to happen.

All of us Kitties Blue already have our virtual costumes and are ready for Angel Sammy and Teddy’s Teaser Halloween Party (Two Spoiled Cats). So obviously, I do not need a real costume. I will keep you up-to-date on what is certain to be a fiasco.

Before asking you to hop, my brofurs, sisfurs and I would like to remember and honor a beautiful lady. Brian’s sisfur, Sascha, who had been ill for quite a while, received her wings on Friday.

Remembering Sascha



Sascha was having health issues for quite sometime, especially during the past month. She even had to spend several days in the hospital. She was fortunate to be able to come home to celebrate her Gotcha Day on October 9. Sascha will be missed by all of us and so many others. We are fairly certain most of you have visited Sascha’s family and left your condolences. But if not, you can click on her photo to visit Brian’s Home. We are sending purrs, prayers, love and our sympathy to the entire family.

Astrid, you need to put your claws down and rein your staff in to do your bidding. Even though she has the thumbs, you need to be able to have a say in the blog. I happen to like that Halloween frame though.

We’re still leaky eyed over Sascha.


Annabelle October 22, 2017 at 11:21 am

What a great selfie! WE love it and that was such a beautiful tribute to dear Sascha. We are all very sadden to hear that she left us for the RB.

Your selfie is beautiful. You are beautiful too and don’t need a costume, so you stick to your convictions. I am sad to hear about Sasha.

Astrid we thinks the dark frame makes you look mysterious and bewitching. We are all just heartbroken about Sascha here.


McGuffy's Reader October 22, 2017 at 8:44 am

Beautiful selfie! Mom usually has to help do the SelfieSunday pictures in this house. But, I don’t mind. We still need a good camera, but we manage to at least try! You guys are the best, though. The Littlest Dude shares today. Hope you like it!

The tortie is always the cutest. That is the law (according to Paisley). You hope your mom doesn’t make you wear something too embarrassing for Halloween! 🙂


Little Binky and Granny October 22, 2017 at 7:30 am

You look marvellous helloweeny, Astrid. I wonder how you all look in your costumes, KittiesBlue 😀
We are very sad too that Sister Sascha had to go to the bridge :'(

This here human is excited for Halloween, just like every year. That being said, we love your festive selfies, Astrid! We wish you luck with the battle of the costume. The only furbaby around here who is willing to dress up for the occasion is our very own Astrid, but she’s a dog and can be easily bribed with peanut butter. Silly dogs, huh?


Athena October 22, 2017 at 5:21 am

Beautiful selfie, Astrid.!

We are so sad about Sascha. May she rest in peace.

Purrs xx

Teddy October 22, 2017 at 5:10 am

Astrid I feel for you being at the mercy of your Mom’s Halloween-ish pranks! However you STILL shine even with your selfies enclosed in a Halloween frame. I’m sure there is more horror to come if your Mom is getting costumes for you….eeek….my Mom will be costuming me no doubt but I think she knows that if she tried to wrestle me into an ACTUAL costume, there would be bloodshed! Happy Sunday to all of the Kitties Blue.

Love, Teddy

That’s a nice selfie, Astrid! My human has already put some costumes on Binga, so you will just have to join the club, so to speak!

Hello beautiful Astrid! We fear that one of us will fall prey to a virtual costume also.
Thank Baste it is only virtual.
We were very saddened to learn about Sister Sascha. We hope our purrs have been of some comfort to her family.
Have an easy Sunday.
>>SMOOCHIES<< from all of us to all of you.


meowmeowmans October 22, 2017 at 12:18 am

Astrid, you are so beautiful, and your selfie skills are epic! Let us know how that costume Mom Janet got for you works out, okay?

We are so sad about Sister Sascha. We stopped by Brian’s blog to leave purrs, prayers and love.


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