Caturday Art & 1,700th Post


Mau's Toon Caturday Art


It’s always best to let sleeping cats lie, and it’s a good time to get some cute photos, especially if your cat is hiding his eyes, as Mau is here.

To create today’s art, I used the Toon effect from Painnt, the Love Bokeh filter (at 73 percent) and purple scroll frame from piZap. The final border is from Picasa.

This is the photo Mau is entering in Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art blog hop. To join in the fun, create some art using one of the numerous photo-editing apps you can find for free on the internet.

Dad Tom had a hard time identifying this photo. Did you? Here’s the original.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

One of Kitties Blue will be here tomorrow to host our Sunday Selfies blog hop. However, our post will be dedicated to and in honor of our friend, Bionic Basil. If you don’t know, Basil received his wings and flew off to the Rainbow Bridge on September 9. Basil and his furblings are faithful participants in the Selfies blog hop, and Basil is beloved by so many in the blogosphere, he deserves our remembrance.

We also will say, “good-bye,” to Milita (Fur Everywhere) and Miles Meezer (Meezer Tails).

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow on the hop.


For our friends who enjoy puzzles, here is the link to today’s art as a 300-piece puzzle. You can decrease the number of pieces on the Jigsaw site by selecting “Play As” (on the upper right) after loading the puzzle.

Lovely artwork, but I couldn’t work out which way round he was until I saw the original.
It has been another very sad time with so many dear friends going to the Bridge, and now Sister Precious too.

Silly me. I had Mau turned around the other way! Such a cute picture. Love the colors! I’ll be checking out your jigsaw puzzle. Looks like a load of fun! 😀

Thanks for sharing the wonderful art today. We always love when a kitty covers their eyes when they are sleeping. We are going to try the Toon effect with one of our photos later on. Really love all the different colors in it. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
