A few days ago I was looking through the photos on my iPhone to see if I had taken anything I could use on the blog. I discovered that unbeknownst to me Astrid had taken 26 selfies of herself. I had no idea she was so capable; though, I should have. She is a tortie cat after all.

The photos are of varying quality, but over all I am quite impressed. I am sharing three of 26, two exceptionally good ones and one of the less than perfect but still adorable photos.

Astrid whispered in my ear as I was writing this post that she took all these photos for Sampy (Kitty Cat Chronicles) with the hope I would find and share them. She really hopes that he likes them and is sending him a bazillioncajillionqaudruplemillion kisses.

Wow Astrid you took 26 selfies? You are really good at taking pictures with your mom’s iPhone. You look quite beautiful in your selfies so we guess your mom will have plenty of pictures of you for Selfie Sunday. Love, Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S)

Oh Astrid! My little kitty heart is going all pittapat-kerthump at your glorious selfies! You are a beauteous LadyCat XOXO

Sorry we have been such a giant FAIL at visiting–the Human keeps *saying, Oh Spitty, we’ll do better this week–but then it’s just same-old, same-old. Phffft! What am I going to *DO* with her??? Maybe she’s too old to have a job and blog for me too? She better quit the job, then!

Kitty Cat Chronicles September 21, 2014 at 2:07 pm

My beautiful Astrid, I am meowing with excitement because those photos of you are overwhelmingly adorable and beautiful. Just when I think you can’t possibly get any more purrfect, you go and take these selfies that are way too cute. And the fact that you took them for me makes my heart sing. I am thrilled to be seeing so many photos of you today – though why your mom didn’t post all 26, I’ll never understand. I am sending all of my love, along with 450982730498523 kisses and purrs. –Sampy
