Sunday Selfies: Week #66

We all put our paws down and refused to take selfies for this weekend. We convinced our guest host to do it after he stuffed himself and didn’t have the energy to fly off and avoid the inevitable.


finch Sunday selfie


We set up the remote and he caught himself with seed in his mouth. Most of us are conflicted as to whether we’d rather be eating him or watching him eat. Misty May knows he’d be cat food if she got her paws on him.

Now, it’s your turn to put your mug in front of the camera lens and snap a photo of yourself.

Fifty-six of you joined us last week. PepiSmartDog didn’t disappoint. They shared the Laughing Kookaburra with us. We watched the video, and this bird really does sound like he’s laughing. Pipo and Minko (WeBeesSiameezers) were so sweet to share a photo of their meowmy with her Aunt Arendina, who was celebrating her 96th birthday.

We didn’t get to check in with all of you last week for which we hope you’ll forgive us. We’ll do our best to visit with as many of you as possible this week.

If you decide to post the hop on your blog, please display our badge and/or link back to The Cat on My Head. And please invite your friends to join in the fun.

Stark Raving Cat Giveaway Reminder

stark raving cat stockingThis limited edition Santa’s Rocking Stocking Catnip Joints from Stark Raving Cat is designed for hanging on the Christmas tree or mantle. A red-and-white pair of catnip joints (topped with tiny Santa hats) peeks out from a traditional red stocking. From the ribbon on the front hangs a silver-tone cat-and-mouse charm. It’s perfect to add to your cat’s collar, a key chain or a necklace to wear as a pendant.

We all loved the nippy goodness emanating from the stocking and joints. You can read our review here and leave a comment for a chance to win a Santa’s Rocking Stocking Catnip Joints.

Purrs and Prayers

It is with great sadness that we send purrs and prayers to all of those effected by the terrorism attacks in Paris, France. It is heartbreaking that such evil exists in our world and so many innocent lives are lost. The people of Paris, especially the family and friends of those killed, will remain in our thoughts and prayers.


Remembering Paris


Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

We think the Selfinch would be very tasty with a pinch of salt and a dab of salmon oil and then fried up 😉 That’s the cat vote here…eat that finch-y up! Yum.

the critters in the cottage xo

That’s a gorgeous bird! Milita would definitely say that it’s cat food, MOL!! I really need to figure out how to get the babies to take selfies with an Android phone – I just love seeing all the selfies each week.

We will go enter your giveaway now!


Peaches & Paprika November 16, 2015 at 7:29 am

Are you saying that poor lil bird is CATFOOD? LOL, Well that’s kind of like a selfie, cat related anyhoo. We lust after that bird!!!~ We, like you, refused to take a real selfie, this week, don’t know why, maybe because we are between seasons….Back next Sunday. Have a great week, y’all!

We get lots of birdies on our bird table – but they all refuse to take a selfie! Maybe I’m not feeding them enough.


Pipo/Minko/MrJackFreckles November 16, 2015 at 2:53 am

We are chattering at that selfinch!! And Pipo has made our window all messy with his drool when he chatters, MOL! That finch sure got himself a great selfinch!! Wowee!

We too are purring and pawyering fur the victims in France.

We have not put up our selfies as yet, but will try to get them up soon…


Patricia November 15, 2015 at 7:46 pm

Great selfie of the birdie. Maybe one of our pigeons could do one, but I don’t know if Mama will let them use her phone camera.
Meows to y’all, Teddy

Pawesome selfie! I’ve not seen a bird like that before, the dinghy Devils are huge in comparison! I’d be excited to watch him. A beautiful tribute too. We are still very sad. Luckily all our friends are safe but so many aren’t. Bisous, Bailey

Great bird photo. Looks like he’s enjoying his meal too.
Thank you for hosting the blog hop.
Earlier today, we were fortunate to photograph a wild endangered marsupial, in the National Forest which are spending a few more days in, in Perth, Western Australia.

We hold the people of France and those affected in our thoughts and prayers. Shocking situation. :=o(
