Caturday Art


pumpkin-eating squirrel


After Halloween, I moved my pumpkins to the far side of the front porch. As the temperatures got colder, the squirrels started eating them. Eventually the pumpkins started to decompose, and we began to dispose of them.  So, we are down to one little gourd. On Friday this portly squirrel was chowing down on it when Dad Tom snapped his photo.

To turn this squirrel into art I used the Novecento effect from the Painnt app and bumped up the saturation slightly. To that I added the glitter filter from piZap at about 40 percent.

Mr. Squirrel is hopping over to Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s blog to join her for her Caturday Art blog hop. To participate, click on Athena’s badge.


Sunday Selfies Reminder

Tomorrow is a very special Sunday for selfies, as it is Valentine’s Day. I am certain Kitties Blue have something exceptional planned; though, they have not shared with me. If you want to do something special to share, that would be terrific. Of course, it is not required. We just want to see and share your adorable faces on the blog hop. Hope to see you there.

Years ago, a neighbor complained to me about how the squirrels ate her decorative pumpkins. Once I pointed out that she was feeding them, and it was a natural experience, I think I helped her to change her mind from being angry to feeling helpful to the wildlife.
