Caturday Art

Today’s wedding of Allie (Friends Furever) and Mau was my inspiration for today’s art. I wanted something romantic to represent their love and commitment. If you look closely, you’ll see that both are present in the photo. This photo of Allie is one of Mauricio’s very favorites.


Allie & Mau combine for a romantic Caturday Art creation.


neonThis week I used PicMonkey exclusively and just a few steps to make the romantic work of art.

Mau will share wedding photos sometime next week.

This is our entry in Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. You can submit some art of your own and/or view the other submissions by clicking on Athena’s Badge.


Sunday Selfies

With Mau and all the ladies being busy with the wedding today, we will be having guest hosts (a two-fur as we call it) for the hop tomorrow. These two are regular visitors to our house. That’s the only hint you get. You’ll just need to come by tomorrow to see who is here. We look forward to having you join us and encourage you to spread the word among your friends about this fun hop.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 11

Mauricio asked to do the fill-ins this week as Saturday is a special day for him: He and Allie (Friends Furever) will be married.

1. I wish I could afford to hire someone to fly me to Florida to be with my beloved (soon to be wife) Allie.
2. Zucchini is not something Allie and I will be serving at our wedding reception.
3. One Summertime memory I recall is the riverboat trip Allie and I took with Cat Scouts on August 11, 2014.  (Mau has included a photo from that trip as well as a ballad he wrote for the occasion.  He thought some of you who were not following us then would be interested.)
4. This Summer, (tomorrow to be exact) I am marrying the love of my life, Allie.

This is a blog hop hosted by Mom Ellen from 15AndMeowing and Mom Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. You can enter the hop on Annie’s blog.


Allie Scarlett and MAUverick reminisce prior to their wedding.

The Legend of MAUverick

This is the story of a purrported gunslinger and cardshark, MAUverick, and his beautiful and genteel girlfriend, Allie Scarlett. (She is not related to Austin Scarlett of Project Runway Fame but legend has it that all her gowns were designed by a distant relative named Miss Melanie. They were all hand-sewn by mice seamstresses.)

Getting back on track…legend has it that MAUverick could shoot the center heart out of the Ace of Hearts at a hundred paces. No photographic proof exists, so it remains a legend. All reports say, however, that he never  drew his gun on any human or cat as he was a peace loving man-cat.

Before meeting Allie Scarlett, MAUverick traveled the Mississippi River on the paddle-wheeled boats playing poker and telling stories about his time in the Old West. Rumor abounds that MAUverick used to keep an ace or two up his sleeve, but this has never been proved. And it is known that he was not a cat of great wealth. Any money he won at cards was always donated to a worthy cat shelter of which there were many along the Mississippi.

Once he met the beautiful and charming Miss Allie Scarlett, he gave up his wandering ways. They settled in a modest cottage in New Orleans where they ran a kitty refuge and tended a garden of cat nip in their spare time. They were said to have lived happily ever after, well into old age, never letting a day go by without holding paws and sharing tender kisses.

The End

Inviting All Cat Scouts

Mau and Allie are inviting all Cat Scouts to their wedding. If you are a Scout but haven’t visited in a while, Cat Scouts has an all new and exciting look. Even if you are unable to attend the wedding, you need to go by and have a look. If you do want to attend the wedding, you must message either Denmother or Allie through Scout e-mail.

Here we are just six days from our fourth blogoversary, and we have reached 1,000 posts. That milestone has left me rather speechless.
