Caturday Art


summer porch cat: artistic version of tuxedo cat lying on porch in summer


Misty May would live on the front porch in the summer if we let her. Some days, when she is meowing non-stop, we happily deposit her there. She has had outside privileges her entire life and knows to stay in the area if she ventures off the porch. As she can no longer hear when we call her, we are grateful that she knows right where she belongs.

I used Painnt yet again to create my art. It is the Blush effect (unchanged from the original). The frame is from favpng.

I created a puzzle for those of you who enjoy a good jigsaw.

Misty May will be popping over to Athena Gat Goddess Wise Kitty’s for her Caturday Art blog hop.You can join her by clicking on Athena’s badge.

Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #218

Friendly Fill-Ins is a blog hop, hosted by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (Four-Legged Furballs). If you’d like to participate, you can find the four sentences to be filled in each Thursday on their blogs. Fill-Ins normally post on Fridays, but we missed them yesterday, as we were celebrating Sawyer’s fifth birthday. If you missed the party, the link to that post is at the bottom of this one.

Here are this week’s fill-ins. I had a little help from Sawyer. We both used teal italics, and any explanatory info is in parentheses.

1. A fashion trend that I hope never returns is hot pants (not that I would wear them at my age).

2. A fashion trend I wouldn’t mind coming back in style is ? (To be honest, I wear what I like and pay little attention to the trends.)

3. Sawyer: I think treats is are superior to stinky goodness. (I am the luckiest cat ever. Noelle gave me a 30 ounce container of Temptations for by birthday. I have been instructed that I am supposed to share. Pffft!)

4. When a new month rolls around, I always comment on how quickly the current year is passing.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Your host for tomorrow, a large, ginger, tabby cat, asked me to remind you to snap a selfie so you can participate in our weekly blog hop. I suspect he’ll be doing something patriotic in anticipation of Independence Day on Monday. We invite you to do the same if you’d like. Of course, that is not mandatory. All the Kitties Blue do hope you’ll join in the hop. Until then…stay cool!

Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I would never wear hot pants either. I had the same for #4. And I am so glad you scored some treats Sawyer. Beautiful art. Thank you for the puzzle. XO

Hot Pants…shudder!

That art was amazing, how it made Misty May look all green, LOL! Pretty though.

The mention of hot pants made my mind swim back in time to when my parents insisted that any skirt or dress worn by their children must at least reach the fingertips of hands held at the side.
Lovely art; I’m off to puzzle, thanks.

Porch time in the fresh air sounds good to us, Misty May! That’s an interesting art effect. Good answers, I don’t care about fashion either, I just need pockets.

Porch time sounds great but probably too hot here for it. We love your artwork.

Noelle is very happy that Sawyer liked her gifts and Periwinkle hopes Stinky likes his too (they should be there Tuesday).

The Florida Furkids with love and whisker kisses to Sawyer from Noelle

Misty May I’m glad you get as much porch time as you want……I’m sure you feel like I do that fresh air is wonderful! I get porch time and yard time with Mom and Dad and can’t imagine ever not having that in my routine. Sawyer I think you really got a great gift with that 30 oz. container of Temptations!

Hugs, Teddy
