Sunday Selfies: Week 78


(Wow that’s a year and a half of Selfies. Thanks everybody!)

Mauricio was resting and warming his face on my iPad when I asked him to take a selfie. As you can see he was quite surprised by my request. Being a blog hog, however, he was happy to oblige.


Mau's Surprised Selfie


He also asked me to share his official 2016 Kitten Bowl trading card and remind everybody to watch the Kitten Bowl today on the Hallmark Channel.


Mauricio Surprised Selfie


He looks just as surprised here as in his selfies. I suspect it’s because as an 11-year-old, he didn’t think he’d be selected for the Kitten Bowl! I don’t have the heart to tell him that though he has a trading card, he’s not in the Bowl. Please don’t mention it in the comments just in case he decides to read this post.

Last week’s Sunday Selfies Blog Hop had one of our most unusual selfies yet. It was entered by the kitties honorary brofur, Bailey Boat Cat. If you missed it, here are the photos. This is a spotted eagle ray.

Mauricio, that is a wonderful selfie! Though you look surprised, you also look very handsome. We love your trading card too! We hate that we couldn’t catch the Kitten Bowl, but we don’t have cable 🙁 Sampy sends all of his love to the beautiful Astrid, and we all send hugs!!

Mauricio, That is a most impressive spontaneous selfie. A gentleman cat scout is always prepared for any eventuality in his day.

Ahhh, the kitten bowl!! That sounds like fun, though around here we may need to divide the time with the puppy bowl, too! MOL!

We really don’t watch the real one though…and not only that, meowmy has to go to work, so we are going to be late, late, late with our selfies…sigh…

You are good looking Mau!! Your selfie surprised us with your super handsomeness!!

BJ Bangs February 7, 2016 at 12:53 pm
