Sunday Selfies: Week #101


Calista Jo's Sunday Selfie and report on her harness training.


Mom asked me to be your host this week so I could share what has been happening with me. First I must apologize for the less than professional quality of my selfies.

So here’s the scoop. Mom wants to take me to BlogPaws 2017 in Myrtle Beach, S.C. As she and Dad will be able to drive, Mom thought it would be fun for one of us to pawticipate in the conference. After weighing the pros and cons of each of us attending, she and Dad selected me for my even temperament and laid-back nature. So I am now in training.

Step one of my training is to get comfy wearing a harness. I have been doing that for a couple of hours each day for the last four days. When I can do that for a few hours at a time, Mom will add a leash and start walking me around the house and yard if I don’t balk. MOUSES! I don’t know if I’ll like that.

Anyhoo, if I get accustomed to that and with visiting places where other humans and pets are present, Mom will get me a stroller. Providing everything works out, I will see y’all next May in South Carolina. Mom and I will keep you posted on my progress.




Hope you’ll join us on the hop today. You can link up your post below. And you can add the hop to your blog with the code below.

You never know who you might meet!

Purrs and paw-pats, Calista Jo


I feel a bit like Sally Field when she accepted her Oscar for Places in the Heart. To find out how much readers enjoy reading about the antics of Kitties Blue is heartwarming. It definitely gives me the desire to continue this blog. A new laptop arriving yesterday afternoon doesn’t hurt! Limping along on the current one for the last six weeks or so has not made trying to post and comment very pleasurable.

THANK YOU readers and friends for visiting, participating in our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop and most of all for your kind and encouraging words.

And now for our blogoversary prize winners as I know that’s why you have dropped in today.

Giveaway Winners

I am pleased to announce the winners of our Birthday post giveaways. Both winners were selected from 82 qualifying comments using Mauricio and Misty May say, “thanks” to everyone who celebrated with them and left a comment. I wish I had a prize for each of you.

Tomcat Commentary by TimThe Comment-a-thon donation to their favorite shelter or rescue was won by Timmy and the gang from Tomcat Commentary by Tim. They selected Tabby’s Place – A Cat Sanctuary to receive the donation. I promised one green paper per comment, but I will round up and send Tabby’s Place 100 green papers. The donation will be made in honor of Timmy’s housemate, Rumpy. Dad Pete says that Rumpy has feline asthma and needs purrs. Kitties Blue will be adding him to their 24/7 Purr List.

Twinkletoe TailsThe Pookapet customized decal was won by Oui Oui from Twinkletoe TAils. She will have to decide if she wants her photo, Carl’s, Julie’s, or Mica Moo’s photo on their decal.

The opportunity to order decals at a discount will remain in effect through September 30. Pookapet is offering a buy one get the second decal at 50 percent off. Use the code BOGO50 at check-out.

Apology to Mauricio

I had promised Mauricio that he could report on his surprise birthday party at Cat Scouts yesterday for Man-Cat Monday. Unfortunately, I was feeling a bit “under the weather” and wasn’t able to help with the typing. His post has been rescheduled for Friday.

Sunday Selfies Thank You

I want to express my appreciation to everyone who joined, supported and promoted our blog hop again on Sunday. Woofies, kitties, and our favorite bun, Speedy, submitted some pawsome selfies. I am delighted to report that I think enough submissions (only a couple fewer this week) are being received to make this a permanent feature of The Cat on My Head.
