Weird Angle Sunday Selfie and Photo Fail

Which one should be the selfie and which should be the photo fail?

Mum and I can't decide but we went with these. First, the Sunday Selfie which Mum took at a weird angle. I think she was too close with her iPhone and my face looks a lot bigger than my body.

And this is the photo fail because I don't look too pleased and my eyes are dark.

1. I find ________________________ annoying. 
2. _______________ is a favorite charity of mine. 
3. I often have to explain _________ to others. 
4. There’s a lot of _________ in my life these days.

1. I find most people annoying for too many reasons to list here.
2. Cats Protection s a favorite charity of mine. 
3. I often have to explain my anxiety to others though I don't like to talk about it as I don't think they understand if they have no experience of it. 
4. There’s a lot of anxiety and stress in my life these days.

1. I find other cats in my garden annoying. 
2. Woodgreen Pets Charity is a favorite charity of mine. They rescued me so Mum and I will forever be grateful to them.
3. I often have to meow my frustration to others. I meow at Mum when she ignores me or won't go to the kitchen to get my food.
4. There’s a lot of worried looks from my family these days. Mum and Gran look sad all the time, but when I'm in the room I do make them laugh. They need to smile a bit even though they are both grieving for Uncle John.

Both photos make a lovely selfie. I sponsor a pen at Cats Protection too. Before the pandemic we visited the headquarters at Haywards Heath and were given a guided tour.

So: even if'n your head seems a little too big, guess what? It's such a beautiful head that that's OK. And even if'n your eyes are a little too dark, that's OK too, cause that close up photo of you is just totally awesome.

Gorgeous selfies, Athena. You couldn't take a photo fail if you wanted to.

The black and white works really well, very slimming.
A treat and no mistake.

Our server is wobbling a bit at the moment BUT Dash Kitten can be reached with some browsers like Chrome. (Just in case you can’t reach us). As you know last week was a struggle but we are back to commenting this week.

Well, if all photos looked the same the world would be hideously boring. It isn't, you look interesting and, if you wanted to you can crop it as a square for Instagram!

Very pretty selfie. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins. I am sorry your mum and grandmum are both so sad. Keep giving them lots of love. I do understand anxiety, although my meds keep mine bearable. XO

You never have a fail sweet Athena, you're always stunning! Those were intersting answers too!

Gotta make sure the entire length of your whiskers makes it into the shot, Athena.

We actually like both photos, Athena. Your head may be a bit out of proportion in the first one, but you still look gorgeous. And it is always okay to show your purrsonality, as in the second photo. You and your mum did a great job on your fill-ins, but it hurts our mom's heart that their is anxiety and sadness at your house. Sending hugs to all. Thanks for hopping with us.

I think the black and white minimizes the too-close look, and emphasizes your lovely eyes.
