Caturday Art

Today we invited one of our furry, bird seed thieves to be the subject of our Caturday Art.



Dad Tom took the original photo, and I did very little to it this week. I used Picasa’s posterize and “Orton” effects followed by the scrolled/flower border from piZap. After that I went back to Picasa for the mat and frame. That’s it…simple!

Here’s the original photo.

The arty version is my submission to Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art blog hop. To participate or find links to other art, click on Athena’s badge.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Tomorrow is your opportunity to show all your friends and followers just how darn adorable you are when you join our blog hop. As we had a guest for art today, one of the Kitties Blue will need to come forward as your host. I have no idea who that might be. You’ll just have to make certain you drop in to see who it is.

Lastly, the Kitties Blue and I would like to thank everyone who participated in our hop last week. It was a great turnout, and we hope to see each of you back tomorrow.

Until then…toodles.

Petcretary just thinks its a cute lil critter, but we think they are varmints! Oh-oh!

Loved your photo and artwork of my fav animal! I cannot think of a better way to spend a Caturday than squirrel watching, unless, of course, there is some squirrel-cat frolicking.

Mom says she really likes what you did to the squirrel picture. It’s really awesome. We have a couple of squirrels that like to come visit us during the day. Mom says we may not invite them in the house.
