Caturday Art

Once again it is snowing, and the snow from two weeks ago is still hanging around. We are only supposed to get a couple of inches, but we are getting pretty tired of the grey, cold days of winter. This, however, allowed Mom to select another of our dad’s snowy photos for today’s art.  The best part is that none of us were involved, except for having the pleasure of watching the subject through the kitchen window.

Without any additional preamble, here’s this week’s art.

Once again, our mom used the Painnt app for her art. This is the Arcoiris effect with the soft lighting filter. And the frame, as always, is from favpng.

We convinced Mom to make a puzzle for those of you who enjoy them.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

We’ve already reached the last weekend in January, and it’s time once again for our blog hop. By now, you all know the procedure.  Just snap a selfie of yourself and link up anytime between midnight Sunday through Thursday. We know you like to show off. If you didn’t, you wouldn’t be the subject of a blog. So take this opportunity to strut your stuff. Who knows, you just may discover some new admirers and maybe even make some new friends.

As usual, we have no idea who your host will be. We’ll all be looking for hiding places, as you know none of us, except Kizmet, are fond of taking selfies. Even with that being the case, we all look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Feline/Friendship Friday

In the winter on the few days when we get sun, the best place to hang out is on Mom and Dad’s bed. Consequently, it is often crowded with as many as five of us.


sunpuddle snoozers - Calista Jo and Sawyer


Sawyer and Calista Jo not only found a sunpuddle but a comfy spot on our Mau pillow. For some reason Sawyer likes to snuggle with C.J. She doesn’t like it! If he tries it while she is awake, she will hiss and growl at him. She was already asleep when he plopped down almost on top of her.

The sunpuddle snoozers are joining both Comedy Plus‘ Feline Friday and Create With Joy‘s Friendship Friday blog hops. You can do the same by clicking on the links in the previous sentence.

Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #296

Friendly Fill-Ins is a blog hop hosted by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (Four-Legged Furballs). They provide the four sentences with blanks for your responses. Often I have difficulty completing the fill-ins and need to ask for a little help from Kitties Blue. This week, however, I completed all four sentences without any help. I used teal italics to fill in.

1. I get my exercise from riding Peloton.

2.  It’s a good thing I don’t mind staying at home with Kitties Blue most of the time, as that is what has been required the last two years due to COVID.

3. Dealing with Sawyer’s seizures when he first started having them required me to muster a lot of courage.

4. My younger self would be proud to know that I now am not shy and lacking in self-confidence.

If you would like to participate, both Ellen and Lorianne post the sentences to be filled in each Thursday on their blogs. To join the hop on Friday, click on the Fill-Ins badge.

That’s it for today. We’ll be back. tomorrow with some Caturday Art.

Sparks Dad Tom found this photo of our two newest angels, Mau and Giulietta, from 2017. When I saw it I thought it would be perfect for a Spark. I hope you like the one from Maya Angelou that I selected to accompany it.     Mauricio was a great cat. He got along with […]

Sunday Selfies: Week: #388 Mom asked me to take a selfie yesterday. I grudgingly agreed, but then I wasn’t very cooperative. Like most of you, I didn’t want to look at the iPad while I was snapping my photo.  Regardless, I think it came out pretty well. What do you think?     We are […]

Caturday Art Yesterday was Squirrel Appreciation Day, and we missed it. We feel badly about that, as those little bushy-tailed, bird-seed thieves provide Kitties Blue with hours of entertainment daily. To make up for our incompetence, we are featuring one of our resident squirrels in our Caturday Art.     I “artified” our furry friend […]
