Sunday Selfies: Week #258

Welcome to our Seventh Blogoversary celebration.

In lieu of a new selfie, we are sharing a few from the past. First up are Lily Olivia and Fiona, our two angels who were here with us when The Cat on My Head began. Their first selfies actually were posted prior to our starting the blog hop.


Lily Olivia’s first Sunday Selfie, prior to the start of the blog hop. June 14, 2014


Fiona’s first Sunday Selfie was on our 400th post on July 20, 2014. This also was prior to starting the blog hop.


The start of the Sunday Selfies blog hop actually was on Astrid and Lisbeth’s birthday, which I discovered while writing the post. Astrid was not featured. I was already a bad mom.

That hop had a total of seven purrticipants, including three that continue to join us: Canadian Cats, 15 And Meowing and Tomcat Commentary by Tim. A special thanks to moms, Jean and Ellen, and dad, Pete, for your continued support. I may have to find some prizes for y’all, but no promises.


Sunday Selfies: Week #1 of the blog hop. featured Lisbeth – August 17, 2014


We are hoping you will join the blog hop by linking up your selfie. We are skipping our usual blog hop tips this week. Instead Kitties Blue are presenting some milestones from the past seven years.


  • Sunday Selfies Blog Hop: Week 258
  • Posts: 1,971
  • Comments: 52,347
  • Recognitions: See sidebar
  • BlogPaws: Attended five times
  • Joined Cat Writers Association
  • Mau married Allie from Friends Furever
  • Astrid married Sampson (Sampy) from Kitty Cat Chronicles

Of course, Mau baked a cake for us in his Cat Scout Bake Shop. Please enjoy a slice or two prior to enjoying an Easy Sunday.



To celebrate this special occasion, I will be donating $1 to a shelter/rescue for each comment left on this post prior to 5 p.m. ET on July 24. One commenter will be selected using and given the opportunity to select the recipient of the donation.

Finally we would like to thank everyone who has visited us and supported us during these seven years, especially during the past year as we have struggled with Sawyer’s seizure disorder. We have made some amazing friends and look forward to making more in the future.

Another Celebration

On Tuesday, the 21st, Mau and Allie will celebrate the third anniversary of their marriage. We’ll be having a party and everyone is invited to attend.

Happy Seventh Blogoversary!!! Mom started cat blogging shortly after Scylla & Charybdis came to live with us so she says it would have been 12 years for us sometime in April.

It was nice to see the angels today and we are so glad we have had the opportunity to meet all of you. Good friends like you are what make blogging worthwhile.
