Sleeping Cat Caturday Art
Today’s Caturday Art features a snoozing Mauricio. He was lying on the kitchen counter atop my placemat and napkin. Before you say, “ew,” we weren’t eating at the time. Some of you will still cringe at the thought of him being there. Sorry, but we lost control years ago! To be honest, we were just happy he was sleeping and not running his mouth.
To create today’s art, I used PicMonkey. I started with the photo of Mauricio (below) and added three textures. The first texture was the photo of ice (on the right) taken by Dad Tom. After that, I added PicMonkey’s burst and clouds textures. Finally I added the frame in Picasa.

Sunday Selfies Reminder
It’s time to start thinking about snapping a selfie for tomorrow if you haven’t already done so. Remember, all critters are welcome, so consider asking your blogging friends to join us. It’s a great way to make new friends as well. The more anipals, the more fun and fur to admire.
That’s a great photo of Mau. We pretty much do whatever we want to do too. Mom and dad gave up trying to get us to do what they want us to do. We are getting older and don’t jump as much as we used to.
That is a gorgeous picture of Mauricio and not ewww at all, just cute…and as a member of the family, it is always allright, where he sits or sleeps, as long as he is not sitting in the food..MOL 😀 Pawkisses 🙂 <3
Today, meowmy had to clean our (their) tablecloth of a big load of kitty fur decor! We love to sprawl ovfur the table in sun puddles:)
Meowmy says one day we might be the main course if the wrong peeps find us there, OMC:(
Of course we know she is teasing us….
We love how you melded those two pics together, wow!
::::::::::::THUD:::::::::::::: oops….that was Allie! She’s swooning over your photo.
We’ve won the battle of the counters too! Score one for the Cats!

Mauricio! A totally wonderful piece of art!!
Mes LOVES it!
We love that Mauricio artwork! He looks so, so peaceful. 🙂
I like this week’s art. I’m always on the table when my peeps eat. I’m the boss of them.

You always have such great artwork!
Have a wonderful weekend…

A cat napping or sitting on my eating surfaces doesn’t bother me one bit. Very sweet photo and artwork!
The mom gave up keeping us off the counters too. That’s some cool art!
Great art of Mau. I would never say ewww…. My cats are out of control and do what they want for the most part.
Such a neat artistic picture of Mauricio. I sleep on the stove. It’s nice and warm there.
Ooh, that’s pretty.
As long as meal prep isn’t going on, mom doesn’t care if I’m on the counters.
You look so sweet Mauricio. Beautiful art ! Purrs
That is lovely art. You look so peaceful sleeping there, Mau.
I love this picture of Mauricio, both the original and the artified one. He looks so sweet and cozy!
And don’t worry, I’ve lost all control of the kitchen counters at my house, too. My girls Thimble and Eddy constantly use it as a catwalk, and my sister’s cat Toby sleeps on it. The only cat who doesn’t climb onto the counters at my house is Evan, which is only because he, if you remember, can’t jump due to hind limb paralysis. Life with cats sure is an adventure! Purrs!
Very nice picture! Our cats aren’t “allowed” on the counter, but of course they probably spend a good part of the day up there when we’re not around. At least they have the decency to jump down when they hear us coming. We hear a “thunk, thunk” and scurrying off. 🙂
That’s pretty darn classy Mauricio!
so cute and adorable frankie gets on the dining room table all the time not the counters so much its hard to get him not to get on things its there house too. Have a great weekend
Awww – so sweet. We don’t thnk that’s icky at all – of course we get up on the counters all the time – when mom’s not around!!
Lookin’ peaceful and serene and COMFY Mau…….if it’s on a tabletop, or in a chair – I don’t think it matters WHERE we get our snoozies from when we have understanding pawrents like YOU do! Enjoy……..
p.s. I’m BACK and sure did miss everybody…….see you tomorrow for the HOP!
What a beautiful picture. He looks so innocent and handsome. Us kitties go where ever we want and ma keeps us safe. Especially Ma’s keyboard when she’s typing, MOL. It’s all good and in fun. We luv ur picture! Purrs
Hi, Janet. I sent you the book (Avalon) you won on Cat Lady Confidential yesterday. You should receive it soon. Have a great weekend 🙂
That is beautiful. We lost control years ago too. Now, we don’t even think about a cat on the table as bad. It’s just normal.
We go where ever we want – Binga even gets up on the dining table and tries to steal my human’s boyfriend’s dinner!
