I apologize for this very late posting. I was unable to connect to the server last night.

Caturday Art

Today is Boxing Day, a very favorite day for cats. Everybody knows cats enjoy a good box or any box for that matter. Our foyer has had several of various sizes in it for many days now.  Appropriately, Kizmet and Cooper Murphy enjoyed a box on Christmas as well and kindly volunteered to be the subjects for Caturday Art.



To create our Boxing Day Art, I used the ShinyXmas effect from Painnt, changed from the original color and then added the piZap border. I think it purrfectly represents the white Christmas we enjoyed yesterday.

I  created a puzzle for you as well.


Kizmet and Cooper Murphy are hopping over to join Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty on her Caturday Art blog hop. You can do the same by clicking on her badge.

Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #239

As promised, here are my completions for yesterday’s Friendly Fill-Ins hosted by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (Four-Legged Furballs). I have used teal italics for my fill-ins.

1. The best gift I have ever given is Kizmet to Dad Tom and myself. 
2. Last night, I was exhausted. When I repeatedly could not connect to the server, I gave up on posting and went to bed.
3. The sun shining brings me joy today. (Currently it is 19 degrees with a “feels like” temperature of 8 degrees.)
4. My favorite holiday memory is every Christmas Eve when I was growing up. My paternal grandfather was born on Christmas Eve, and we had a birthday party for him every year.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Barring any computer, network or server issue, one of the Kitties Blue will be right here at midnight tomorrow to host our weekly Sunday Selfies blog hop. They may not look forward to taking selfies, but they always look forward to seeing the smiling faces of their friends. Hope you’ll join us!

Bad, bad internet. We’ve been having old computer problems. Welcome Kizmet!
Thanks for the snail mail card. We didn’t send any this year. Let me know if you didn’t receive my ecard and I’ll send it to you. Dunno if you’re on the CB list.

Pawsome art!

Momma has a grandfather wif an “almost Christmas” birthday too – it’s the 22nd. He turned 93 this year, and unfortunately his senior living is not allowing visitors (even though he already had COVID this summer and was asymptomatic). At least momma wuz able to call him and tell him happy birthday.

I love the wintery theme.

That is some super artwork, you guys. And surely that is going to be one tough puzzle!

Coop, you look so intelligent sitting in your box. Kizmet you look all knowing in your own private box.



Memories of Eric and Flynn December 26, 2020 at 12:24 pm

That is pretty art. It coordinates well with your background. Thanks for the puzzle.


Timmy Tomcat December 26, 2020 at 12:20 pm

We feel for you as we lost power and it did something to our comupter. Luckily it just blew out the sound system which was moaning Hee Hee. We love seeing our new pal Kizmet and Cooper enjoying a good box. What a great day for cats!

Computer and internet problems just get one so riled up, don’t they?
Pretty art, thanks for the puzzle!

Love the artsy photos of your box-buddies! Sorry you had server connection issues last night – I bet servers were loaded up with people using the net to share Christmas stories, gifts, fun.

We’re glad Kizmet was the best present you all received this year – we agree!!!!!!

Hugs, Pam and Teddy


Brian Frum December 26, 2020 at 10:08 am

Those were good answers and such pretty art!

Snowflakes on furries,
and kitties in boxes,
these are a few of my favorite things!
And well done by the “Blues” …


Meows, purrs, hugs and MOLs are greatly appreciated. Please no hissing, spitting or scratching unless you want one of us to whap you!
