Caturday Art

Some kitty indulged in a bit too much nip.


Nip-Induced nap: Art rendering in the colors of blue, rose and yellow of a dilute tortoise shell cat sleeping on a table with a pile of half-eaten catnip.


That’s Calista Jo in a nip-induced nap on the catio table after imbibing some fresh, home-grown catnip. You can see the remnants of the nip in the foreground. C.J. wasn’t too happy that she had her photo snapped while she was exposing her ample belly. She is the second largest of the Kitties Blue weighing in at just under 17 pounds. I always find it hard to believe that the tiny kitten whom Astrid (currently just over six pounds) towered over has grown into this behemoth. (Please don’t tell her I said that!) C.J. does have a tendency to throw that weight around. She can be really hissy and a bit of a bully, especially when it comes to Lisbeth.

But Calista Jo loves me. She must sleep as close to me as she can every night. If she could crawl under my skin, she would.

To create the art, I, of course, used Painnt. This is the Galle effect. To that I added the Curved Light filter from piZap at 70 percent. As per usual, the frame is from the favpng app.

And, here’s the puzzle.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Tomorrow’s the day when we all put our best paw, fin, wing or whatever appendage is appropriate for your species, forward and share a selfie. No one here is leaping at the opportunity to be your host, but I am certain I’ll coerce on of the Kitties Blue in time to go live at midnight ET on Sunday.

We know that some of you enjoy taking a selfie, which is the only reason we’ll be back tomorrow for week #468 of this hop. Maybe, we’ll even get some newcomers participating.

So, all the Kitties Blue hope you have a terrific Caturday and look forward to seeing you tomorrow.
