We are having ridiculously cold weather and are lying around the house like a bunch of sloths. Mom told us we could do a Friday Flashback post since we’re being totally uninteresting. Our task was to find a post with no comments from our early days of blogging.

The only post we found, that wasn’t a Christmas post from 2012, was about cat puke. The post was pretty funny, and you can read it here if you like. We, however, were not in the mood to embarrass ourselves so told the typist we had come up short.

Then she sent us to our photo archives. She’d been saving this photo for Caturday Art, but we convinced her to use it today.




Does it remind you of anything? Could it be the “Creation of Adam” by Michelangelo from the Sistine Chapel?

Yep, that’s the one.

We can tell you that Lily Olivia (left in the top photo) and Misty May would not have used this inadvertant touch for creating anything. Had either one realized what was happening, each would have been wishing for magical powers to zap the other right out of existence.

Back in September 2012, Mom did a Cat Imitates Art post on a Wordless Wednesday. It featured original Kitty Blue, Skooter. It was not on such a grandiose scale art wise. We had two comments on that one: Mom’s friend and her daughter. If you’d like to see it, click here.

Cat4Tomorrow, we will be joining Athena and Marie for their Caturday Art Blog Hop, and Sunday we will be hosting our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. Hope the two-day reminder will give lots of you the opportunity to join us. We also have another Sharkie and Blue adventure (most likely their last before returning home) to share with you on Monday or Tuesday.

You guys are so funny. Sistine chapel! In my mind you two would make better artwork than Michelangelo’s work of art. Skooter was sure a cutie pie. Nice memories to have as keepsakes.

A very sweet art imitation! In fact, we dare to say that we like it better than the original!!!

Cats do imitate art so well, in fact THEY are art. V., P., and M.

Great imitation of art with the paws touching. And Skooter did a great job of imitating the calendar.

We hope the static electricity wasn’t pinging you all when you were touching, MOL!
That happens in our den sometimes.

Great piccie from your archives!

Cold weather causes more touching that pretty much anything!

Mariodacat January 9, 2015 at 7:51 am

Good one! Mays I’m like that all winter, only she calls me a slug. We live in WI.

Sammy January 9, 2015 at 6:59 am

That is a really fabulous photo of toe-touching!!! Very much “life imitating art” and vice versa! Stay warm – it’s ridiculous outside…totally…..already wishing it was Spring and we have a LONG WAY TO GO!

Hugs, Sammy and Mom Pam
