Caturday Art

Here we are hopping again. This time for Caturday Art—our mom’s favorite blog hop. All this hopping is making us feel more like a fluffle of bunnies than the clutter of cats we are. But all that aside, Mom tinkered with a photo of me today. I don’t think I need any embellishment, but like my brofur and sisfurs, I have zero control over her fiddling. So here I am in her latest creation.

I was sitting in one of the chairs on the catio when Dad Tom snapped this photo. I suspect that I had my eyes on the bird feeder.

Mom usually explains her process for creating each of her “art” pieces, but she got a migraine this afternoon, and her brain is fuzzier than usual. I can tell you that she started with LunaPic and turned my photo into a black and white sketch. She added the color back to my nose and eyes using PicMonkey. She added some other stuff with PicMonkey as well, including that green frost. The flowers were added with piZap and the border with Picasa. Please forgive us for not being more specific.

The internet abounds with oodles of free photo-editing programs.



Sunday Selfies Reminder

Tomorrow we will have a special selfies blog hop in honor of Friends Furever, Dad Bill (Allie and Raz’s daddy). All the Kitties Blue, as well as our mom and dad are so sad that he had to go to heaven on Thursday. He fought very hard the last couple of months to get well and return home, but God had other plans. Please keep Allie, Raz and Mom Sharon in your thoughts and prayers.  Even if you don’t take a selfie or join the hop, we hope you’ll stop by and honor him.

Purrs and paw-pats, Cooper Murphy
