And now here is my selfie for the week:-




     Like our pal, Summer, who is a consummate professional in such matters–and way better than I at such things, I do have to do a photo shoot every now and then, for competition entries, Christmas cards, the blog, and as part of my royal household duties.

     Recently we had to pull out of one UK national competition, in which we'd secured a place in the finals, as the distance to the finale venue, hosted by a true TV celebrity, was just too far for me. Travelling to, into and around our busy capital city really isn't easy at the best of times for a human, let alone a small shy cat in my Sleepy Pod. The whole trip would have been filled with logistical issues for my own wellbeing, comfort and safety, over what would have been an extremely long 16 hour day. 

     So alas, that competition and a chance of stardom as the face of a big corporate, had to be bowed out of gracefully. 

     This week's selfie is from a recent photoshoot for a yet to be entered competition, and is entitled . . .  Well,I will let our dear readers decide what we should call this one.  


     Have you guys ever had to make a decision that meant you lost out on something that could have changed your life?

     Mrs H says to me, when I begin to doubt myself because of my rough edges and wrong-side-of-the–track past, that I am imperfectly perfect, and very special–like all cats are–no matter their pedigree. It is what's in your heart that matters, not the size or shape of your ears.

     Real cats rock, always have and always will . . .

All The Gear . . .

Hello and welcome to The Sunday Selfies!

And now here is my selfie for the week:-




     These days, if you are serious about your sports activities, be they mousing, napping, or yoga (yes, yoga is a sort in the feline world!) you just have to have the gear, be seen wearing it in all the right places–like the supermarket, or stretching all the right bits so they warm and flexible before you start.

     As Mrs H said I wasn't allowed to wear spandex as it would cut off my circulation and was unseemly for a princess, I decided to ask Santa for a yoga mat for my birthday instead. Imagine my surprise when on the big day, 25th December, I opened my presents and found a delightful yoga cum exercise and sports mat, delivered from my beloved Valentine of Noir Kitty Mews, in Portland. Clearly Santa had wisely elected to leave these things to Valentine, who is a master of style and interior design. Val had risen to the challenge, and hand picked the perfect mat, in a tuxedo design no less. What a thoughtful guy he is!

     In this weeks selfie you can see me limbering up before a practice session on my new mat.  This pose is called the LAP or Legs Akimbo Pose. MOL

     How do you guys limber up, and do you have a favourite pose you want to share with your fellow yoga masters?
