Jigsaw Puzzle


Caturday Art


Sunny Day Ginger: ginger tabby cat snoozing on a sunny day and turned into art in colors of orange, yellow and rose and framed with orange flowers.


Raleigh was enjoying a snooze on the catio right outside the cat door on a hot and sunny day. Any cat that wanted to enter or exit the house had to jump over him. He was unmoved by these actions.

As you can see, he is no longer kitten-sized. He and Audrey are all grown up and will celebrate their first Gotcha Day in a few days. You would think after being here for a year that Raleigh might have warmed up to Dad Tom and me, but he still shies away from us and does not want to be touched. He is such a cutie pie. It breaks my heart I can’t pet and snuggle with him.

To create Raleigh’s art I used the Flower Gogh effect from Painnt and changed the hue slightly. To that I added the Flux filter from piZap at 100 percent. And, of course, the frame is from the favpng app.

I made a puzzle for those of you who enjoy them. I cropped off all the white space created by the frame, as I know it is pretty boring putting all those white pieces together.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Time to spruce up your furs, feathers or scales and snap a selfie so you can join us tomorrow on our weekly blog hop. It’s easy and fun and one of the best places on the internet to make new friends. All the humans love seeing cute animals and “oohing” and “aahing” over them, so this is the purrfect place to show off. Your host tomorrow is a mystery to me, so you’ll definitely need to drop in to find out who it is. And don’t forget, if you don’t post on Sundays or cannot join us then for some other reason, the hop remains open through Thursday.

Thank You

Kitties Blue and I want to thank you for joining us today and also for stopping by yesterday to celebrate our 11th blogoversary and Sawyer’s second anniversary of his second Gotcha Day. If you missed that post, the link to it is at the bottom of this one.

Have a wonderful Caturday. Tell your humans to spoil you.



Sunday Selfies: Week #464


Ginger cat (nickname gingersnap) framed in gold and orange with orange flowers.

I think most of you know that I am one of three gingersnap cats. The others are my friends and former Cat Scouts, Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats) and Chip. We were roommates at Scouts in the Cat Scout University dormitory. Though Cat Scouts has now ended, we will always be Scouts at heart and great friends.

As far as the giant part goes, I am a hefty boy at almost 20 pounds. Of course, next to my fellow gingersnap and bestest friend, Teddy, I am not that hefty. The way I see it, however, with both Teddy and me, it’s just more of us to love.

So, Mom, thought I looked so handsome in my photo, she made another puzzle. If it is as hot where you live, as it is here, staying inside and puzzling is a good plan.

Hopping Time

Now that I have shared my selfie, it’s time for you to share yours with us and all your other friends. I will admit that I am looking incredibly handsome today, but I also know that each of you are even more handsome, or in the case of all you girls out there, beautiful. And today is the day you get to show that off.

But, of course, as we remind you every week, it is not necessary to post today or even join the hop today. That remains open through Thursday.

Whenever you join our hop or just drop by to see your friends, all my fursibs and I thank you for stopping by to see us, commenting and being our friends.

Now go have an easy Sunday and try to stay cool. I find napping on my back with my tummy exposed is a great way to do just that. (And I know Teddy agrees.)

Purrs & paw-pats, Gingersnap Cooper Murphy



Caturday Art

Raleigh thinks he owns the top of the bedroom cat tree. When Audrey had the audacity to try it out, Raleigh pestered her until she got down. He could immediately reclaimed his spot.

Raleigh has very unusual patterns in his fur, and I like how this effect from Painnt accentuates that. The effect is Forager and the frame, as usual, is from the favpng app.

I also made a puzzle.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

I know those of you who join us regularly do not need a reminder that tomorrow is selfie day. But, if by chance, someone new should stop by today, Kitties Blue would like them to know about tomorrow’s hop. New hoppers are always welcome, and we hope you will encourage your friends to join us as well.

So, we’ll be looking for you and your smiling faces tomorrow. None of the gang have come forward to offer to be your host, which means you’ll need to come by to find out which of the Kitties Blue will be here.

Until then…have a wonderful Caturday.





Caturday Art


Dilute tortoise shell cat with laser (high beam) eyes in a colorful piece of artwork surrounded by a wooden frame.


Calista Jo is back today for Caturday Art. The photo was taken on her birthday right after I gave her the blue octopus toy. She didn’t want it then nor when I gave it to her later on the bed. I had to use the flash to take her photo, so she ended up having high beam eyes.

I did use Painnt again for the art. The effect is Amateur Crochet. I increased the saturation by about 50 percent, as the colors looked a little muddy. I used piZap to add the Pop filter at 50 percent. The fame is from the favpng app.

And here’s the link to C.J.’s puzzle.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

This week has not flown by like it usually does, as we have been inundated with rain for the past several days. The days have seemed unending. Anyhoo, we’ve finally made it to the day prior to selfie day. So, that means it is time for Kitties Blue and I to remind you to snap your selfie and join our hop tomorrow. I think our sweet Lisbeth may be your host.

Have a terrific Caturday. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow.




Caturday Art


Tabby cat lying in a Christmas cardboard house in pastel colors created with Lapiz and bubble foam effects from Painnt and favpng and a circular pastel frame from favpng.


Today’s art features Audrey in one of Kitties Blue Christmas houses. I had put them away in the closet for several months as they had almost totally destroyed them. I decided to set them up again a few days ago. Raleigh, especially, has been working hard to dismantle the one Audrey’s in here.

To create the art, I used the Lapiz effect from Painnt and increased the saturation slightly. I overlaid it with the Bubble Foam effect from favpng at about 80 percent. The frame also is from the favpng app.

Of course, I made a puzzle for those of you, like myself, who enjoy them.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Darn, if it isn’t that time again: One of the Kitties Blue needs to step up, take a selfie and be your host tomorrow. You all know what a struggle that can often be. I do not expect this week to be any different, but as it is Father’s Day tomorrow, maybe at least one of them will come through for me. Of course, being Father’s Day, many of you may be busy treating your dad to extra cuddles and purrs, so we understand if you are unable to post your selfie tomorrow. But, we do hope you’ll join us before the hop closes on Thursday.

Have a terrific Caturday, dear friends.

It would seem with the photos I have been sharing lately that the only thing Kitties Blue do is sleep. I will admit they are champion snoozers. Today’s napper is Sawyer.


Art rendering of a tabby Manx cat asleep in a gilded vintage frame.


To create the art, I went back to the Painnt app. This is the L’oiseau effect with the contrast increased. L’oiseau is French and translates to bird. I think the effect made Sawyer’s fur look like feathers. The frame is the Vintage Ornament Frame from favpng, which I think made the entire creation look like a vintage piece of art.

Of course, I also made a puzzle for you.

Calista Jo will be here tomorrow as your host for Sunday Selfies. I am just as surprised as you are that one of the gang has already come forward and agreed to host but also has taken her selfie. As I always say, “Cats are predictably unpredictable.” C.J., as well as myself and the other Kitties Blue are looking forward to having you join us. So, brush up those furs and put on your best smile.

Thanks for joining us today.

Today’s art features the stunning Lisbeth. I particularly like how her eyes are sparkling in this photo.

Once again, I created the art using the Painnt app. This is the Pinup Style effect. I did change the hue of the original photo. As always, the frame is from favpng.

Here is the link to Lisbeth in puzzle form.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

You won’t want to miss tomorrow’s Sunday Selfies hop post. We will be remembering and honoring a special friend tomorrow. Raz from Friends Furever received his angel wings yesterday at 4:15 p.m. and went to the Rainbow Bridge. If you follow the Friends Furever blog, then you know that Raz has been unwell for several months. He’s been on medication, getting B-12 shots and fluids, but unfortunately his health continued to decline.

We consider Raz and his mom and fursibs part of our family. Our angel Mau was married to Raz’s sisfur, angel Allie, Sawyer is his sisfur Noelle’s, boyfriend. And the alter-egos of Sawyer and Noelle, Stinky and Periwinkle, adventure together every week.

Thanks for stopping by today. We sincerely hope to see you tomorrow.



Caturday Art

I loved this photo of Audrey on the cat tree due to her sweet expression and her shadow on the wall. Unfortunately, the original photo was out of focus. So, that made it the purrfect candidate for Caturday Art. And, I have two versions for you today, as I could not decide which I liked best. If you have a favorite, please let us know in the comments.

To create both of these artistic images, I used Painnt. The first image uses the Legoo effect with soft lighting and analog color composition. I created the second image with the AmyK 3 effect. Both frames are from the favpng app.

Of course, two artistic photos means you also get two puzzles.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

It is time again, tomorrow, to share your selfie with the Kitties Blue and all your friends. Raleigh was supposed to be your host tomorrow, but I made him use his selfie photo yesterday on his naughtiness confession post. That means I will be trying to find one of the other eight to step up and take over the hosting duties. I suspect some treats will be involved in the process of persuasion.

Thanks for coming by to visit with us. We hope to see you again tomorrow.

This is going to be very short, as Mom is unable to stay awake. Here I am in her suitcase as she packed for Dad Tom’s and her anniversary getaway. I absolutely refused to leave her suitcase. She finally had to kick me out. So rude!

Mom created the art using the Fur Sketch effect from Painnt. She added the original coloring back so the sketch wouldn’t be just black and white. The over-the-top frame is another from favpng.

She also made a puzzle. She tried removing the white margins from around the photo by putting it on a transparent background. Unfortunately, Jigsaw Planet doesn’t recognize that. So, unfortunately, a huge amount of white space exists at the bottom and on the right side of the puzzle.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

It is time again to share your selfie with the Kitties Blue and all your friends tomorrow. There is every reason to expect there will be a guest host for the third week a row. That is because Mom is not home to coerce one of us into snapping a selfie. But whether it is one of us or another adorable critter here to greet you, please consider joining our hop. It remains open through Thursday.

Purrs and paw-pats, Cooper Murphy

Thanks for coming by to visit with us.

During the Roundup last week, Kizmet took refuge in a paper bag after her turn at being poked and prodded. The photo of her came out a bit blurry so it was a purrfect candidate for today’s art. To create it, I used the Cortazar effect from Painnt. The frame is from favpng.

This is not my favorite piece of art I have created. Nonetheless, I did create a puzzle for those of you, like me, who enjoy doing them.

Another week has flown by, and it’s time once again to get your selfie snapped for tomorrow’s hop. Kitties Blue are fortunate that for the second week in a row, we will be having a guest host tomorrow. As usual, you’ll have to stop in to see who it is, as I am not giving any hints.

Kitties Blue and I hope to see your smiling faces tomorrow. Until then, have a terrific Caturday.
