Let Me Take My Foto

Hola kitties! It's a new week. This week is loaded with cat holidays like National Cats in Film Day. Thursday is Take Your Cat to Work Day so I'm trying to talk Pop into working at home so I can "be at work" with him. He said he's gonna work at home Tuesday but he can work at home more than one day a week. It's also National Selfie Day on Thursday. I don't post on Thursday so I thought I'd do a "selfie"—otherwise known as a "plandid" since I'm still the lacking thumbs needed to press down a shutter. Are plandids even a thing anymore? I don't have Instagram so I don't know.

Let Me Take My Foto

Lemme set the stage for you. This is a plandid cos I planned the shot but demanded TW take the darn thing. I'm sitting on the chair and peeking out from under the table. It's a smexy pose and I look stunning.

Let Me Take My Foto

First she took it on the iPawd, which was a mistake on her part. You can see it in the header. I screamed holy heck. She informed me she doesn't have an iPhone, so I "found" one for her. Tuna and I managed to hack into it remember the passcode and I resumed the pose. *Click* Mission accomplished.

I'd like to know what methods other blogging cats use to take "selfies" so I can learn. Flynn used a timer but I dunno if this iPhone has a timer. Would an egg timer work? Huh? TW sez we don't have one of those either.


Since this is Music Monday, I'm joining the Music Moves Me blog hop hosted by Curious as a Cathy and a chorus of others. Even though I'm not participating in the official weekly theme, let me leave you with a tune by a band from Brooklyn, NY, since it's called "Let Me Take Your Foto." Yeah, these Brooklyn natives have fake British accents. They were 16 when this song was released so we'll cut them some slack. TW said the lead singer sported bright pink hair when she saw them live. Dunno if I can excuse him for that.

I'll admit we were fresh out of ideas for today's post so I hastily put this together. TW took Sunday off to watch some old geezers her age play baseball on Old Timer's Day and then the Yankees lose. It's so hard to get good help. Every human wants a day off every year or so. Do you have that problem too?

  1. Wait a minute - take your cat to work is THURSDAY? I have it listed as next Monday! I can never get the day right. Well, no matter, as my human and I work together most days.

  2. Cathy,

    Keisha is very photogenic. :) I don't think the iPhone built-in camera app has a self-timer mode but you can find other photography apps that have that feature, though.

    Thanks for introducing The Speedies to me and for boogieing with the 4M crew today, dearie. Have a tunetastic week! ;)

  3. CK, us poor kitties around here have a faulty human, too. We make her sit still with the camera pointed at us, sometimes with her lying on the ground (she knows her place), until we're all ready and posed for our selfie. Then we tell her when to push the button. That's why we've always got our ears cut off and other silliness like that, though, because the human here is next to useless.

    P.S. We don't like the sound of this Take Your Cat To Work Day. Our human has to leave the house to work, and that would mean getting locked up in that PTU thing, which is clearly evil incarnate. The human can go to work herself, and she better bring home the bacon.

  7. Well, of course that photo was stunning. What else could it possibly be? We didn't think this post sounded hastily put together at all. That's what makes Mondays post so awesome. Or in your case, stunning!

  8. Mom will have to take Tyebe and me out to the garden and let us dig out the weeds. We'd be a huge help. She needs weeding lessons.

  9. You always look stunning, CK. I am sure you will be able to work out the timer. Flynn used to swear by it. He never trusted me to help with his selfies.

  12. I have an app on the mom’s ipad that’s called Cat Selfie and I can take my own selfie. It doesn’t always work out though because the foto is outta focus and stuff like that. ~Ernie

  13. I could use an iPhone. How much would it cost me to have you and Tuna "remember" the password on the phone I "found"? Great "plandid". I just looked up the definition of plandid. Hahaha, apparently people have too much time on their hands.
