Pet Blogger Challenge: Our Selfie Entry for Pawtraits Competition

This is one of our favourite photos.

It may not be quite the high quality of our most recent shots, but we just think that it's quite unique and original and shows the close bond between pet and owner, mother and cat daughter.

Athena was still a kitten when this was taken back in the autumn of 2011. I was tapping away on my laptop at my desk (or most probably surfing the internet) when suddenly I felt a wet tongue (or maybe it was her little nose) on my ear lobe.

I quickly reached for my Blackberry phone which was close at hand and took the picture. If you look closely on the bed you see my then digital camera was nearby too, but obviously too far for me to reach.

Many people have commented that it looks as if Athena is whispering to me on this photo. I think it does too, which makes it even more sweet.

We are sharing this photograph because it is our entry into the  Animal Friends Pet Pawtraits competition, which is open to pet bloggers who are residents of the UK, Ireland and European Union.

The closing date is March 14th, so we'd better hurry and email it to them!

That is really cute! There are actually a couple of pretty cool photos of me and my human (just a couple), but as we live in the US, we don't qualify for this competition. Good luck!
