Caturday Art

Last Caturday our humans helped transport two kitties who were being moved from Georgia to Northern Virginia. If you missed it, these two handsome gentlemen were the hosts for last Sunday’s Selfies Blog Hop.

Ricky Bobby dreaming and looking at the blue sky.Mom had several photos of Ricky Bobby she thought might make good art and selected this one. It was taken in the car. Mom loved the backdrop of the blue sky and white clouds through the sunroof.

Ricky Bobby and his traveling companion, Bruno Mars, ended their journey at Fancy Cats Rescue Team in Herndon, Virginia. Mom went to their site today and PetFinder looking for the two boys. Bruno was listed, but she couldn’t find Ricky Bobby. We all have our paws crossed that he has already found his forever home.

Here is the art mom created using Picasa this week. She first turned the photo into a pencil sketch. She then added the heat map filter, the posterize filter and the HDR filter. The final step was adding a frame from PhotoFaceFun.

Normally, we would be less than pleased that our blog has been taken over again by this interloper, but if Ricky hasn’t found a home yet, someone may see him here and make inquiries about adopting him. That’s more impawtant than only thinking of ourselves all the time. You can read the original post featuring Ricky and Bruno here. And you can inquire about Ricky (or Bruno) here.

Sunday Selfies

Cat4-001Time to set that self-timer on your camera and start snapping some photos for tomorrow’s blog hop. We’ve been making lots of new friends, and we sincerely hope y’all have been visiting some of the newer hoppers. We don’t know as yet who your host will be tomorrow, but it will be one of the Kitties Blue! It all depends on who Mom can coerce.

Thanks for visiting, dear friends!

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Oh my! This art is very different and would send me back to the picket line. It looks like instead of a cat, a bird has appeared in blue and green. Different. Mom likes it cause she likes odd things. I say give the bird to Ricky Bob. MOL

Ricky Bobby is so handsome, and I love how you artified that wonderful shot of him. Kitties Blue, you should be proud of your mom and dad for the work they do to help kitties like Ricky Bobby, and it’s so sweet of you all to let him star in today’s post again. We are purring that Ricky Bobby and Bruno Mars will be on their way to their forever homes sooner than soon! Purrs!
