Caturday Art

Mom created the art today, but we kitties are taking over the blog. Prior to telling you why, here’s what she created.


Sawyer's Caturday Art


This is Sawyer napping in the pink cat cube. It was created by adding a swirl effect using AdornPic. Then the Cambalache filter from Painnt was added with the “original” color composition and the “cold”coloring. After that a metallic texture and the “arty” part were added with piZap. (We really don’t know what to call those flowers and squiggles and strange shapes.) Mom’s final step was to add the solid color borders using Picasa. We think this turned out pretty cool. What do you think?

This is Mom’s entry in Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art blog hop. You can enter or see other cool art created by your fellow bloggers by clicking on her badge.

Here’s the original photo of Sawyer in the pink cube.



Happy Anniversary

Now you know why we kitties are writing the post today. It is Mom and Dad’s 45th wedding anniversary, and we wanted to do something just from us to celebrate. Mau normally would have baked a cake, but they are both dieting. We hate to tell them, but we don’t think they’ll ever again look like they did in this first photo of them together taken in December 1971.

We think it is pretty cool that Prince Harry and Miss Markle decided to get married on our humans’ anniversary.



Happy Anniversary


Dad Tom & Mom Janet

We love you,

Angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

Sunday Selfies

Yep, it’s that time again! We are hoping to get Mom and Dad to take a selfie of themselves today and share it on the hop tomorrow. Then you can see how REALLY old they are. No guarantees they’ll do this, but we all have our paws crossed…and not just because none of us want to take one. Anyhoo…we sure hope you’ll join us. We do enjoy seeing your smiling faces each Sunday.

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

This is really an awesome art. I like the way the colour is blended well. I guess I want to put that “cat transcendence meme” here on this comment, but I can’t. By the way, I am really sorry, this is just my first time here. I guess I need to go back to the older post to understand and read the journey of Fiona and related story. Furthermore, happy anniversary to the happy couple!

What a sweet couple and so handsome, beautiful, and cool!
Wishing you many more happy years together.

Sawyer, I love that photo of you with that effect! Your mamma did good. I also love seeing the two of you back in ’71. I relate very well to the look and times. XXX

The artsy photo is amazing….little Sawyer looks like he’s having a beautiful dream all wrapped up and safe. As for your Mom and Dad – that’s a fabulous flashback photo of them….wonder what they were thinking as they had that “first photo together” shot? We hope they have an amazing celebration of their BIG DAY and yes indeed it is rather nice that Harry and Meghan decided if it was good enough as a wedding day for your Mom and Dad, then it was good enough for them!

Love, Teddy

Happy anniversary to your humans! They were so lucky to find each other at such a young age. My human says that it would have been a disaster if she’d married any of the guys she’d gotten involved with in her 20s. MOL! She really admires people who not only choose well in love, but know how to make it last a lifetime.
