Phoebe’s Traveling Shades Tour


Sunday Selfies: Week #140


Easter Sunday Selfies in Shades


The tale of Phoebe’s Traveling Sunglasses continues today with our Sunday Selfies blog hop. Last Sunday Calista Jo was the model. This week we have three models, Mauricio, Giulietta and Lily Olivia. As you can see the girls were a bit more cooperative than Mauricio. This photo shoot was totally reminiscent of the recent Bobble Hat debacle. Though it may appear as if I am strangling him, no cat was harmed during this photo shoot.

We have four additional kitties to get in the shades before we send them on to the next stop on the tour. I believe that those remaining may need to be approached while they are sleeping. as I do not expect any cooperation.

Cat4-001This is our Sunday Selfies blog hop. Though it is a holiday, we hope many of you who hop with us regularly will join us today. And newcomers are always welcome to join in the fun. After all, what better day to hop than Easter. The link to add your selfie to the hop is below. You may also add the hop to your selfies post as well if you’d like.  If you do so would you please do us the courtesy of displaying our badge and/or linking back to The Cat on My Head. Thank you!



Mauricio & Cooper Murphy wish everyone a Happy Easter

Sunday Selfies Blog Hop: Week #139

Phoebes-Traveling-ShadesWe have been waiting and waiting and waiting… Last summer we joined Pheobe’s (15AndMeowing) Traveling Shades tour. Summer came and went, fall came and went, winter came and went, and we were still waiting. Finally the shades reappeared, being worn by Mudpie (Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries and Meows). We had hope that we’d get our turn. And two days ago the sunglasses arrived in our mailbox.

Petretary wants to get at least one photo of each of us wearing them. We are not going to hold our collective breaths, but let’s make it clear right now—ain’t ever gonna happen! One reason for that is the shades don’t fit all of us. Lily Olivia tried them on but they just kept falling off. Then I, your selfie host today, tried them on. They were too small for me. With any luck at least one of my fursibs will have a head that is somewhere between the size of Lily’s and mine.

I did manage to snap a couple of so-so selfies with the shades atop my head. Then I went to piZap and picked a nice springtime frame to complement the frame on the shades. And here it is. Sorry I didn’t look at the camera.

Astrid thought she was pretty special last week when she got three posts in succession. My plan is for the same thing for myself. Keep your paws crossed for me.


Now, the petretary says that I have to do the business of this post. Frankly, I think that is her responsibility, but if I want that third post, I figure I best comply.

This is our Sunday Selfies blog hop. All critters and their humans are invited to join in the fun. The link to add your selfie is below as is the code to add the hop to your post. If you decide to do this, would you please do us the courtesy of linking back to The Cat on My Head and/or displaying our badge.

If you cannot join us today, the hop remains open through Thursday.

My fursibs and I and the petretary are so grateful to have so many friends and supporters of our Sunday Selfies blog hop. Please accept my sincere thanks on behalf of all of us.
