Sunday Selfies: Yawns Gone Wild

Around here, each week my furbabies and I all try to work together to get furry selfies worthy of the always fun Sunday Selfie blog hop, hosted by our Kitties Blue furiends over at The Cat on My Head. This week, my furbabies did indeed work together to reach a common goal. But, it would seem that common goal was to bring their furiends' something from their worst nightmares.




The only furbaby who managed a decent selfie that will actually allow you to sleep at nigh was, believe it or not, Eddy!


Happy Sunday to all of our furiends!

Our Tip of the Day:
What I have today is more of a fun exercise than a tip...It's been said that many furbabies will yawn if they see their human yawn. Some studies have shown that furbabies are far more likely to do this in response to their owner's yawn rather than a friend or stranger's yawn. Some say that if your furbaby is indeed one who responds to your yawn with their own yawn, then this is a sign that they have developed empathy and an overall deep bond and connection with you their human. I found this a very interesting notion and tried it myself. I got all of my furbabies to respond to my yawn with a yawn of their own at least once, but not each time. My most consistent yawning buddy? Thimble! How about all of our furiends? Any other empathetic yawning furbabies out there?

  2. These are so funny! I love them! Oops, I mean I'm terrified. :) Eddy looks amazingly sedate.

    What a fun tip. I will definitely be giving it that a try. Maybe we'll do yawning selfies next week.

  3. Your furbabies could never be scary- sorry guys :) Great selfies. I will have to try that yawning trick- it will take me a while with 13 kitties. Hope you have a great day.

  4. Those are some pretty scary selfless! LOL. I will have to pay close attention to see if anyone in our house yawns in response to my yawn or if I catch myself yawning when one of them yawns.

  15. These photos are hysterical and adorable. I always have a hard time catching a photo of a kitty in mid-yawn. I am going to try this trick of yawning at them first. I'll let you know how this experiment goes. Thanks for hopping. Hugs, J.
