Sunday Selfie from on top of the Bookshelf & Friendly Fill-Ins

Happy Sunday!


I love sitting on top of the bookshelf being a bit of a tree dweller as I'm doing here in this selfie.

Friendly Fill-Ins 

Marie 
1. I am going to focus on my writing again even if no one really wants to read it. I am grateful for the support I've had from most of my blogger friends but in the real world, no one cares. Even my own family and closest relatives. 
2. I want to be more financially secure.  
3. Once in a blue moon, I feel hopeful and happy. 
4. I have a large collection of books and CDs. It was even larger before I moved house and so I gave a lot away to charity.

Athena
1. I am going to make Mum get off the computer and take an afternoon nap with me right now.
2. I want to be more famous. Some famous cats out there shouldn't really be famous in my opinion. They just got lucky!
3. Once in a blue moon, I jump on Mum's back. Haven't done it for a while actually. It was easier when I was a kitten.
4. I have a large selection of toys which I easily get bored with. Mum keeps buying more, but I am happy with a clothes peg or paper bag.

Beautiful selfie Athena! Thank you both for participating in the fill-ins, great answers from you both. I am glad your mom is going to write some more. I know what she means about those closest to her because the only one near me that reads my blog is my mom, my hubby doesn't even read it. I am glad you have lots of toys Athena and I hope you have a nice nap together. XO

Lovely selfie Athena.

We think some of the famous cats are that way because they have a quirk or something. You are perfect so maybe you won't make your fortune as a celebricat!

Mum should check out some of the self-publishing sites for inspiration. If only to find out what she might not want to do !

Happy Sunday Selfies

I like to climb up high too!

What a cute selfie, Athena. We hope you and your mom took that nap.

We absolutely love this selfie. You look ready for anything. You and your mom both did a great job with fill-ins. Thanks for hopping over to see us. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

Cathy Keisha said...

Definitely number 2! I want more fame and riches. You look great today!

meowmeowmans said...

Whoa! That's a lovely selfie, Athena!

Summer said...

Athena, I agree about some of these famous cats! They have, like, over a million followers on Instagram and they don't even leave the house or do anything special. I work my tail off (well, not literally), and I have to fight for every follower.

The Menagerie Mom said...

Hello, lovely Athena! Thank you to you and your mum for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! I am so glad you're mom is writing. This here human loves to write, but is only just now learning how to force herself to be disciplined enough to finish some stories to the very end. And isn't jumping on a human's back sometimes just so fun, Athena? This here human's parents have a cat who will happily jump on your back, no matter if you're bent over or standing straight up. Purrs, and we hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Athena, Manny is in love with a plastic spoon...all other toys be damned, well...except any cardboard box that he can chew on! Chili Bruce has very specific tastes: his Neko Fly toy, or the red dot and that's that!

I love the look on your face in this photo! Happy Monday

The Indulged Furries said...

Wow, that's an attention grabbing selfie.

David E. McClendon, Sr. said...

Great answers. Sometimes those in the real world can be a pain. The blogsphere is often better. From time to time there is the odd hater that creeps in. Have a blessed week.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

Stunning picture as always, Athena. Just the sight of you calms my nerves.

Suzanne McClendon said...

Marie, I am sorry that your friends and family are not more supportive of your writing endeavors. That is very sad. But, you know what? It is their loss. Do what makes your heart happy, even if theirs are occupied elsewhere.

Athena, the fame thing works that way for people. Some just get lucky; they ride the fame wagon on their parent's name or whatever. Other folks, just as worthy (if not moreso!) don't get the chance, for whatever reason. That is unfortunate.

Have a blessed week!

Marie Symeou said...

I know you do, Summer. And you deserve to be famous :)

Marie Symeou said...

We can't choose our relatives, unfortunately.

Marie Symeou said...

I miss Athena jumping on my back. She hasn't done it for quite a while :)

Marie Symeou said...

Yes, the pet blogosphere is especially welcoming and lovely.

Marie Symeou said...

Thanks for your wise words. I try to do what makes me happy, though sometimes it can make me feel unhappy because of the lack of support. Have a great week :)

Oh wow, so many gorgeous and adorable cats! I could keep looking at this post all day long, lol.
