Caturday Art

Today, the focus for our post is not really on the art but the occasion. Twelve years ago today, Mauricio and Misty May were born. When we met them and their brother in November, they were three adorable little kittens. Even when I look at photos of those munchkins, I find it hard to believe they were ever so itty bitty. Their joint nickname was “The Babies.” We’ve haven’t called them that in many years.

I created a little bit of Birthday art using piZap and Picasa. Nothing wild and crazy this week.


Then & Now


caturdayartbannerThe top photo was taken in December 2004 and the bottom was snapped last night. We rarely see this sister and brother anywhere near each other, so it was a good catch for their birthday post.

This is our entry in Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art blog hop. To join and/or view the other submissions, click on Athena’s badge.

Mauricio’s good friend and Cat Scout pal, Sammy (onespoiledcat) sent him this nice card. Mauricio says, “Thank you my dear friend.”


may birthday 2016


Dad Tom has been working on some upgrades for the catio, which will be Misty May and Mauricio’s gift, along with some treats! I’ll share catio photos next week.

We are having a small celebration, and the birthday kitties would be delighted if you join us. We have cake, courtesy of Mau’s Cat Scout Bake Shop, nip champagne and all the catnip you can inhale or eat.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Cat4-001That’s right, tomorrow is the day for our blog hop. It’s week #110. We’ll be looking for all our old friends to join us and maybe some new ones as well. Please invite your friends to join us. They don’t need to have a pet blog. They can link to their Facebook account. And here’s a tip to remember when taking your selfies: Don’t leave nose trips on the camera lens or phone screen!

Have fun at the party, and we’ll see you tomorrow.

Sweet photos. Time passes so quickly. I absolutely love that cat cake. Is that for people or kitties? I don’t think I’d be able to actually cut into it if I had it! LOL! Happy birthdays!

I hope both Mau and Misty May have a fabulous birthday…..and Misty May – I apologize for NOT including you on the card I sent! Shame on me! I know you two are “twins” and I’m sure you will forgive me – let’s blame it on my being OLDER THAN DIRT! Have a lovely day………and know that I sent both of you big birthday hugs.

Love, Sammy
