Sunday Selfies: Week #431 

I bet you don’t even recognize me. I haven’t been here (except for Blog4Peace when I had to share the spotlight with all the Kitties Blue) since September 23. If you’re new here, you’ve probably never even met me.

Hi, I’m Astrid. The only other of the Kitties Blue as elusive as me is Lisbeth. We came here together and are the shyest cats among the nine. That’s why I am here so seldom. And that makes me extra special. Don’t you think?

Unfortunately, my mom wanted me to show you where I was when I took my selfie. That means I may be the star of the selfies show, but I am stuck with a supporting cast: Cooper Murphy, Raleigh, Audrey and Sawyer. As if they don’t get enough attention!


Five cats together on human's bed: four tabbies and one tortie.


By the way, that lump I am perched on is mom taking a nap! Well, she was trying to nap, but I was purring nonstop. That is one of my best talents. But you probably didn’t know that either.

So now that I have shown you my selfie as well as the photo of this mangey crew, it’s your turn to share your selfie with us. Don’t worry if you are too busy to share it today. The hop will remain open through Turkey Day!

On behalf of myself, these photo bombers, the remainder of the Kitties Blue and our mom, thank you for being our friends, hopping with us and commenting.  We love you all!

Purrs and paw-pats, Astrid

ASTRID! I have read and read your name as I come to your blog,but seeing you…you’re right. If someone had asked me if I knew you were there I would have said yes. But if they asked what you looked like..I could not have said. There you are. Black Beauty


Peaches & Paprika November 20, 2022 at 5:31 am

We don’t blame you for not wanting to share the spotlight. Those are things where we cats just have to roll with the punches I for example hate anyone paying attention to my inferior sis-fur Paprika. She doesn’t deserve it. (she feels differently) Nevertheless one must get along with those humans because they have the can-openers to give us the tuna! Sad but true. Signed, Peaches, Head Cat.
From Paprika: We also want to tell Misty May that she is a great sport to wear that cute sweater and therefore should be able to do anything she wants! I would never wear such things, and no one can make me. So congrats to you, MM. signed Paprika, head cat wannabe.

Hi Astrid! That is a wonderful selfie, and yes, it’s true … seeing you is always so special because it is kind of rare. 🙂

That sure is a nice kitty pile you all did on Mom. Sorry you had to share, but it sounds like you were actually okay with it.
