Recently, Lily Olivia has been getting up close and personal and sticking her face right up in mine. I normally don’t mind this as it means we can exchange kisses. I will give her kisses on the top of her head, and she will kiss my face. But lately, she has been the biggest grump. I am more likely to get growled at and receive a whap across the face.

Sunday Selfies 1

Lily looking totally indignant.

Two nights ago, I woke up a couple of times to find her sitting right next to my head and staring at me. The look on her face said, “don’t touch me!” She’s never been known for having a  sweet purrsonality. I have always said that she is bipolar. But as she’s aged, she’s mellowed a little and become slightly more tolerant. I am now thinking this has merely been a phase.

I decided if she wasn’t going to let me pet or love on her, I, at least, was going to get some photos and took a couple of selfies of the two of us. (I did my best to crop myself out.) As you can see from her facial expressions, she was obviously put out by the whole affair.

I most likely will make Sunday Selfies part of our regular post rotation alternating with Easy Like Sunday posts. With any luck, future selfies will show photos of less grumpy kitties.

Ok, I’m going to say it.. a change in behavior like that to me would be a sign that the kitty needs to see a vet.. it very well could be nothing, but it could be something..

MOL! Lily Olivia sounds a lot like Sassy. Sassy likes to get right up on you and be sweet, but at the drop of a hat she will start hissing and bite (she bites HARD too). Even though Lily Olivia has a grumpy face, the pictures are still cute.

Sampson sends lots of kisses to Astrid, and we all send our love.

No way is that beautiful little girl grumpy. It must be something you did that ticked her off. How would you like to get your picture taken 24/7. Good golly she can’t have a fur hair out of place…all the time…just in case mom decides to take a picture. It’s enough tp make me angry…specially if that flashy thing is on the camera.



Cathy Keisha June 15, 2014 at 4:56 pm

whoa! Her eyes are big and everything. That’s not good news. TW was just reading about that disease on last night’s My Cat From Hell—she thinks I have it cos I attacked Pop last night for Father’s Day—and it said that aging cats that get it from the stress of not being able to do what they used to.

Maybe she’s tryin’ to give Grumpy Cat a run for her money. Don’t think it will work though ’cause OLIVIA IS WAY TOO CUTE for that. Just LOOK at that face!

She’s a pretty girl up close like that! Sparkle is right, if the grouchy thing is new, it’s worth getting checked to make sure there isn’t something ouchy going on.

If Lily continues being grouchy, you might want to have a vet check her out. When kitties are grouchy, sometimes it means there is something going on with them physically. It could just be something minor, like an ingrown claw (like Binga has at the moment), or something not-minor that is making them feel bad in general.
