Caturday Art


Today’s art features Sawyer in silhouette against the screen of the catio. He is trying to get to a squirrel (represented by a red puff ball here) on the bird feeder. The squirrel will be more evident in the original photo.

I used the Flowers effect from Painnt to create the art and added the multiply filter from the Color Composition section. I rounded the corners with Picasa.

Sawyer is joining the Caturday Art blog hop on Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s blog. If you’d like to see other art or join in with some of your own, click on Athena’s badge.

Here is the original photo.



Sawyer and I are embarrassed to continue to ask for your purrs, prayers and POTP, but he desperately needs them. He had another seizure yesterday afternoon. Little more than 60 hours had past since his previous one. The is the shortest time between any of his seizures.

Some of you have mentioned trying CBD oil to control his seizures. State law prohibits Dr. Neel from even discussing CBD oil with us. She could lose her license just for talking about it. I have investigated it a bit, but do not know how it might interact with Sawyer’s current meds. If anyone has used CBD oil and can offer first-hand accounts of how it worked for your cat, please let me know in the comments. Thank you.

Sunday Selfie Reminder

We’ll be watching the Kitten Bowl tomorrow and suspect many of you will be watching that as well as Super Bowl LIII. Before you get involved in all the celebrations and overeating, take the opportunity to snap a selfie and join our weekly blog hop. We’ve heard a rumor that your host might be Mau. This is his wife Allie’s early warning so she can be sitting down when she visits.

We look forward to seeing you.

Sorry that Sawyer still is having all those seizures.

Here in MI, CBD oil is legal and readily available at health food stores and online as well.

Petcretary wants to use it, but so far she has not done that…she has no idea how to dose a kitty, but that info must surely be online.

Purrs and pawyers to the max for Sawyer and all of you.
Hugs, too

POTP to Sawyer, sorry hes experiencing more seizures. I hope you can get some relief for him, sweet boy.

Hey Sawyer,
You make the most wonderful art and I gotta tell you…you are purrfect! And you are in my purrayers!
And we are not sure about CBT oil for pets, it is legal up here in the great white north and it really works for my Dad!

Sawyer, we’re loving that artwork of you. It’s magical! We’re sad, however, to hear of your latest seizure. We’ll keep on purring and praying for you. We sure hope Dr. Neel can figure out how to get you on the right track, pal.

I’m gonna watch the Cat Bowl tonight in five minutes! Sending healing purrz to Sawyer. I wish you were on FB cos there are a few on the CWB group who know a lot about CBD oil

Melissa & Mudpie February 2, 2019 at 6:41 pm

We love how this turned out! That squirrel sure is tempting you, isn’t he?

The Island Cats February 2, 2019 at 6:36 pm

That art came out really cool. We like how the tree branches look.

And poor Sawyer! We continue to purr for him. As for CBD oil, there are so many ones out there, it’s best to get one from a reputable company. The mom tried it with both Zoey and Ernie but there are so many caveats…like you have to give it within 2 hours of other meds and you really have to give it orally like rubbed on the gums for it to be most effective, that it became just too much of a challenge and she gave up. A lot of people use it and swear it helps, though.

We are sorry to hear about Sawyer and continue to send purrayers and POTP. Is here some hope that he may outgrow the seizures ? I know this sometimes happens in humans.
medical marijuana is legal in Ohio but my own doctor will not even discuss it for my chronic arthritis.

Catscue Catmom February 2, 2019 at 3:28 pm

Purrs and prayers for Sawyer and his family – get better soon sweetie. The art is super today!

Athena February 2, 2019 at 2:34 pm

The art is amazing!

Sending healing thoughts and purrs for Sawyer.

Purrs xx

We don’t think you can ever have enough prayers. We just joined the group Brian mentioned.

Great artwork. Sawyer is such a sweetie and we really wish you could come up with a good “cocktail” to help him.

The Florida Furkids with tons of smoochies and love and thanks for the warning from Allie

Funky art1
I’m sorry to hear about Sawyer continuing to have seizures. Our healing purrs are freely given, so never hesitate to ask!
I don’t have any info about CBD, but hopefully you can get some good info. Maybe after finding info on the internet you could do a phone consultation with a vet in a different state? You may have to try the CBD (with caution) as a last resort, if nothing else is working for Sawyer.

Jackie Avery February 2, 2019 at 12:26 pm

I am sorry that the seizures are continuing. I looked into CBD oil for myself but my doctor advised against it because it could stop the cancer pill working properly. However, when I was looking I saw a lot of sites that say it can help in seizures and other ailments in cats. Could you discuss it with one of the many online vets? I assume that as your vet is prohibited from discussing it, it is also illegal to have it sent to you from another state?
The art is lovely. I really like Sawyer’s silhouette against that background.

Beautiful art. I’m so sorry to hear about Sawyer having another seizure. I won’t type what I was going say about medicine that can help people and animals being banned and laws being put forth by Virginia legislators (I think it was knocked down, thank heaven). ’nuff said on that. I’m praying so hard that Sawyer can find something to help alleviate these seizures.

Have a blessed day and weekend. Healing hugs to Sawyer. ♥

Your art came out great! Never be embarrassed to ask for purrs and prayers. I am praying for your sweet boy. XO

Brian Frum February 2, 2019 at 9:59 am

Purrs and prayers to dear Sawyer from all of us. I don’t remember if you are on Facebook or not, but their is a very active CBD Oil for Pets group there.

Teddy February 2, 2019 at 5:33 am

Sawyer I continue to send you my prayers and still hope that the seizures will stop. Maybe the CBD oil is the answer and I hope some of your visitors can tell your Mom of their experience with it. I love the photo of you on the catio reaching for Mr. Squirrel – I’m sure that squirrel knows that he’s SAFE with that screen between you!

Love, Teddy
