Blog Hop


Sunday Selfies Blog Hop

I was able to get out of this last week when I demanded Calista Jo post her selfies. I wasn’t able to dissuade Mom, however, from using my photos this week. It meant she didn’t have to twist any other cat’s paw to get them to pose and snap their own photo. So here I am, Lily Olivia, in all my blurry glory. Mom tried to fancy things up a bit, but I know we can’t fool you into thinking there’s anything good about these photos. I’m positive all of you can do so much better!

We are looking forward to your joining our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop prior to getting your Sunday Easy on. If you’d like to get the code and share the submissions on your blog, can you please link back to The Cat on My Head and/or display our badge.

As Mom was still out of town when we posted our Sunday Selfies last week, we weren’t able to get around to visit all of you who entered your selfies. We are super sorry for this, and we promise to visit each of you this week.

[follow_me] Lily Olivia made it clear that she does not think she’s getting enough face time on The Cat on My Head. Though she was shown in Astrid’s gift box recently, she says that was Astrid’s post and NOT hers. When Lily Olivia complains, I listen. If I don’t, she will take it out on me with verbal and physical abuse…whining and hissing and a smacky paw beat down. So here she is today in her recent Polaroid-inspired selfie. She didn’t do a great job with the focus, but I like the ethereal look that gives to the photo. It fits the unusually un-grumpy expression on her face. And I think it makes her look younger than her 15 years.
