Caturday Art

Astrid is here today to join Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty on her blog hop. Astrid was tucked into Lisbeth’s fish bed, which she received from her boy friend, Cat Scout Charles. Both the girls use the bed; though, Astrid fits inside better.


Caturday Art Amsterdam


To create the art, I used the Amsterdam filter in Painnt, followed by the ScrapZ texture and an opaque, black floral border from piZap.

Here’s the original photo with a tighter crop.

Astrid Update

Those of you who follow us regularly know that Astrid is a timid cat. This is the result of bullying by Misty May. Lately Misty May has been paying less and less attention to Astrid. My theory is that since Misty May can no longer hear Astrid squeal when she chases after her, she has lost interest.

As a result, Astrid is gaining back some of her mojo. She’s been joining us in bed in the morning and snuggling with me. She’ll also come upstairs in the afternoon when I try to take a break to do some reading. She curls into my lap and turns up her purr to high. She even has joined us a few times at night when Misty May is sleeping and not aware of her presence. This brings me so much joy as I know it does Astrid as well.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

As tomorrow is Cinco de Meow, I am certain whichever of the Kitties Blue ends up being your host for the blog hop, s/he will be doing a little celebrating for the holiday. You are invited to dress up in a costume (either in the fur or virtually) or just put a fancy frame around your photo. Of course, this is not a requirement to join the hop…just a suggestion. Whatever you decide, we look forward to seeing you on the hop.
