Caturday Art

Wowzers! This is my third post this week. It looks as if the newness of that ginger tabby, Cooper Murphy, is wearing off, and this little tortie is taking center stage. I heard a rumor that I might have the honor of being your host for Sunday Selfies tomorrow as well.

I think the petretary went off the deep end with the art today. And I am not certain that I like it; though, in one of the versions, I am front and center. In the other two versions, I’m not even recognizable. At least I convinced her not to share the exceptionally blurry photo she took of me and used for the basis of the art.

Here is the first piece Mom created using LunaPic.




The only thing I recognize in this kaleidoscope is the color of my collar. MOUSES! Interesting, but where’s the cat!

From this she thought it would be fun to turn me into a cube, using LunaPic again. Excuse me…I am soft and cuddly not all sharp and pointy. Sheesh!




She had some failures in PicMonkey (which I told her she was not allowed to save) before loading the kaleidoscope version into piZap, where she cut out my face from a better photo and plopped it into the center. Another fail, in my opinion. She promised me she could improve that rendering by “tarting” it up with some fancy borders and a frame.

caturdayartbannerDo you think she redeemed herself or is this just a cruel April Fool’s joke? I do like the colors and that I look as if I am the center of a flower. So, I am going to let her off the hook and accept this abomination art as satisfactory. But the next time she decides to make me look arty, she darn well better make me look pretty as well.

Cat4-001Sunday Selfies

That’s right, another week has flown by or blown away or…whatever. It’s already time to snap a selfie for our blog hop tomorrow. As I mentioned at the top of this ramble, I believe I’ll be back tomorrow as your host. If you have the opportunity, invite some friends to join in the fun. Until then…

Purrs and paw-pats, Astrid
