Sunday Selfies Blog Hop: Week 81


Astrid's Tortilicious Sunday Selfie


I am your host today for our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. I took a pretty great photo this week, don’t you think? Dad has this new gadget that is only a lens. We can put it up very close to our face and take a photo. It doesn’t flash, so we don’t get frightened or have dots before our eyes afterwards. It somehow syncs to his phone, but the photos aren’t stored there. They are saved to a card in the lens. At least I think that’s how he explained it.

A few of us tried out this lens thingie, and we each got at least one really great selfie. We’ll be sharing those on upcoming Sundays.

Cat4-001Okay, it’s your turn to show off your selfies. All anipals are welcome so please invite you friends to join us. They can be woofies or birdies, squirrels or bunnies or any other critter.

What a great gadget! If Mommy had something like that, there might be more pictures with my eyes open. Thanks for stopping by yesterday!

With this incarnation, we are only posting on the blogs that posts on ours and we are trying to keep it manageable so we can post and respond like we like to. So we are not doing linkies.

Excellent selfie, Astrid!


Kitty Cat Chronicles February 29, 2016 at 11:48 am

Dearest Astrid,
You look more and more beautiful every time I see you. This is a very lovely selfie. And what a neat toy your dad got! Sounds like fun. I wanted to let you know that the Valentine’s/Anniversary gift I picked out for you arrived at our house last week. I am working on putting your package together and making you a card. I hope to have it mailed out in a couple days. Sending lots of love and a kiss for every fur on your precious face.


Pipo/Minko/MrJackFreckles February 29, 2016 at 1:59 am

What a great selfie!!

Pipo sure would appawsiate a picture taking device like that, MOL! He always turns away…well a lot of the time,MOL!!


Tina Barbour February 28, 2016 at 10:22 pm

That is a great selfie! I’ve never heard of a camera like that, but I like that it doesn’t flash. The flash bothers my kitties’ eyes and they quickly get tired of my photo sessions with them. 🙂

Wow! What better way to get the best picture of the most pawsome Tortie! I want one of those lens thingies too. That sounds like a great tool. We can add that to all the other lens things that Mommie has.

I love gadgets like that! Lucy is really petrified of a camera click, as is Maggie. Using the phone helps a ton, as I can mute it. But I might need to look into this lens thing. It might work even better!

Mommy has a very soft spot in her heat for a Torite. She also said she thinks she messed up the credits for the blog hop.
…she’s sooooo useless.


Vera February 28, 2016 at 1:19 pm

Magnificent photo! and what a perfect name for a tortie. You are so beautiful Astrid.

Savannah's Paw Tracks February 28, 2016 at 12:16 pm

*whoosh—sliding into blog hop* I am out of breath. I woke Mom L up really early because she FORGOT to do my SUnday Selfie and after ALL my pals helped me pick one out special. But, I made it. And Astrid you are looking lovely as ever. Mom L wants Dad Tom to let her know what lens he bought for his cell that does that type of cool close up photo. She wants one, of course!

Well, I just love this blog of yours and the photos and the Sunday Selfie thingy and The Cat On My Head Logo and all of the other neat things you have on your home page.
I think I had better add some more to mine, but I’m not sure how to do it. Will ask my guru…
Thank you for a GREAT blog, full of fun.

That is a beautiful selfie! My mum very rarely uses the flash for me, but that means that sometimes my photos come out a little bit fuzzy.
