Caturday Art

As she always does, Mom created today’s art for Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art blog hop. She agreed, however, to allow me to write my very first post. As I have never done this before, I hope you’ll forgive me if I don’t do a very good job.

Our art today was created using a photo Dad Tom took yesterday afternoon after I returned home from the vet. That’s correct, you read that right! Yesterday I got my first vaccinations. I will share more about that after Mom shows off her creation.

Astrid was in the shark bed atop the dining room table when I meandered by on my way to her cocoon bed (the bright blue and grey blob behind the shark bed. We exchanged no meows, growls, hisses or any other form of kitty communication but just stared at each other for a little while.

Mom used the Thoreau filter from the Painnt app, added the blue scroll border using piZap and added the frame with Picasa.

Here’s the original photo for a comparison.

Now…more about me!

I had no idea anything unusual was going to occur. Dad put that thing my furblings call a PTU, which I rode in once before, on the dining room table. I got inside and checked it out and then went about my business. A little later Mom shut me in the bathroom. Dad came in with that PTU and loaded me in it.

We went to the car where I sat in the carrier on Mom’s lap. Sometimes I looked out the window. During the entire trip, I did not make even the teeniest sound.

Our vet Dr. Neel is on vacation in a place Mom called, “Paris.” We saw another vet and Tameka, who I hear is my fursibs’ favorite tech. She weighed me. I weigh  5.1 pounds now. Nineteen days ago I only weighed 3.9 pounds. I inspected every inch of the exam room and then got three shots. Because I was very growly, the vet wrapped me up like a “purrito” after the first one. I didn’t try to hurt the vet lady. And she gave me treats when she finished! Score!

I heard some discussions about returning in three weeks for another vaccine and some type of “boy bits” surgery. I need to ask Mau and Cooper Murphy what that’s all about.

On the return trip home, I didn’t make even the littlest chirp. Mom had some additional treats with her and doled them out slowly on the way home. Double score!

I spent most of the remainder of my day in Astrid’s cocoon or the SleepyPod. That was a lot of excitement for a little guy

Sunday Selfies Reminder

I’ve been informed that I must remind all our friends to stop by for Sunday Selfies tomorrow. I think Mom mentioned something about a “two-fur” from us. I don’t know what that is, but I guess I’ll find out tomorrow.

How’d I do? Mom claims I was a bit wordy, and she’d be the one to know!

Purrs and paw-pats, Sawyer
