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.

To find links to other blogs with art, click on her badge. And if you haven’t attempted creating some art for the hop, give it a try. 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

Oh, this is such a lovely masterpiece. You certainly are a purrfect model, Cooper Murphy! (P.S. We think you resemble Calista Jo in this art piece, Cooper Murphy.)

It is so sweet that your selfies post will be a memorial for Bill. We are following your lead and trying to honor Bill as well as Kevin and Tracey’s Zoe tomorrow.

Cooper you’re right about how we gingers really need nothing to make us look any more FABULOUS than we already do, BUT your Mom did some way way cool things to your catio portrait and it does look spectacular. I’m so sorry your Mom got a migraine – those are just awful. My Mom used to get those but when she stopped taking one of her medications a few years ago the migraines went away!!! We hope your Mom wakes up feeling just dandy this morning. We will be around for your Memorial Hop tomorrow for Mr. Bill…….like yours, our hearts are also broken…….

Love, Teddy and Mom too

That is some lovely art of you, Cooper M.

I hope your Mom’s migraine is over, they are not fun at all. Petcretary started the day with a headache too, but a good strong coffee quelled it in a hurry!
