revealFor our Caturday Art this past weekend, we challenged you to identify the cat in our abstract submission to Athena and Marie’s Blog Hop. if you missed that post or forgot what the photo looked like, here is a smaller version.

Lots of those who commented didn’t even venture a guess. And most of those who did thought it was Astrid.

Only one person guessed correctly. Before we share the name with you, we will give you a look at the original, unedited photo.



Ta-da…Lily Olivia up close and personal. She thought I’d been on the computer for way too long and demanded some Lily time by getting right up in my face. It made her head look both huge and out of focus. I considered cropping this and using it as a Sunday Selfie, but Lily protested when she saw the blurriness of her calico beauty and the glower on her face. What she refuses to admit is that grumpy is her usual look.







Finally, it’s time to tell you who won the special prize. It is one of Mom’s really good friends: LP, aka Mom Sophie, from Critters in the Cottage. Concatulations!

revealAnd what has she won? It is one of the new gifts Mom created on Zazzle. It is not something for the Critters but for Sophie. Hope she likes it! Mom suggests filling it with a chilled, white wine.

Our third blogoversary is just around the corner. We will be giving away another custom water/wine bottle as well as a piece of art by Katzy. Mark you calendars for July 21 so you don’t miss our party and giveaway.

See y’all tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday.

XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

What a cool Caturday Art photo! We missed it on Saturday. We probably would have guessed Astrid too, as that is Sampson’s guess for everything. ConCATs to Mom Sophie for winning. What a cool water/wine bottle!

MOL! We know how to get meowmy;s attention away from the confuser too…we are way more impawrtant, concats to the winner who guessed correctly:)
We did not even try to venture any guesses, MOL!!

Lily Olivia, I think Leopold Lion Heart may have guided my guess for that one 🙂 He loved your deliciously sweet, grumpy face as much as I do and would recognize it in anything and anywhere!

Thanks so much for the gift J.B. I have an idea…chilled white wine in that lovely bottle to replace my usual biking water bottle! Now that would make for an adventuresome bike ride! 😉

Thank you! Merci beaucoup! I am thrilled to have won and to have guessed correctly!

ton amie,

Sophie XO

What a surprise to see who the mystery cat was. Concatulations to Ms Sophie. That is a super prize. My mom agrees …..that it should hold wine.
Hugs to all….kisses to my sweet Ms Lisbeth

What a cool prize! We think that the recommendation to fill it with chilled wine works fine if she won’t fill it with catnip.
