Caturday Art Star


Star Lily O


Star Lily OliviaIf you look closely, you will see Lily Olivia in the background of my Caturday Art. I used three different programs to create this. Here’s the original photo.

I started with PhotoFaceFun, which I usually just use for frames. They do not have names for their filters, so I am unable to tell you which one I selected. The result is below.

Lily Star Interim I was very happy with the look of the photo and the details added by the filter, but it needed something more. It took me a lot of trial and error to find just the right addition. I finally settled on the star effect from Ribbit. This is just one of several new effects available. I was able to manipulate the effect so that Lily was still recognizable in the background. The final step was adding the borders using Picasa.

Stark Raving Cat Giveaway Winner

We were pretty excited when selected our friend Cathy Keisha as the winner of the limited edition Santa’s Rocking Stocking Catnip Joints. It seemed like serendipity after we reread her comment: “I need some of those joints so badly. I’ve coveted them since Hauspanther first reviewed them.” For those who didn’t win, you can purchase this for your own kitties for $15. from Stark Raving Cat.

Our Giveaway for Catify to Satisfy

Yesterday I posted Part 2 of my interview with cat behaviorist and Animal Planet star, Jackson Galaxy. I also reviewed his and Kate Benjamin’s new book, Catify to Satisfy. If you would like to have the opportunity to win a copy of this must have book, leave a comment here.

Finally, A Note from Kitties Blue

Cat4-001Have you taken your selfie yet for tomorrow’s blog hop? We haven’t decided who’ll be representing us, but we are fairly certain Mom won’t let us get away with having a guest host again.

We totally appreciate all of you who enter and support our hop each week. Our overall readership has dropped significantly during the last few months, so we are very happy that so many of you still enjoy joining us for Sunday Selfies! Hope to see you again tomorrow.

Spitty the Kitty November 21, 2015 at 9:12 pm

We went back and read the first half of the Jackson Galaxy interview and then caught up with the second. The Human hasn’t never even watched him (how crazy *is* she???) but I am going to MAKE her find out when and where his show is. I think he is a wonderful Human!

We also love your art post today–at first we couldn’t figure out if there was a kitty but now we see her! It looks like she is all bejeweled! I has my selfie all ready–in fact I posted it already because the Human is soooooooo furgetful! XOXOXOXO

Tell Misty May it’s (almost for sure) a date for the NYE ball–the stoopy Human always has a pawty here on NYE so we hope it might be a more early-in-the-day pawty? I wouldn’t want to be ungentlemanly and abandon her. Maybe Mau could let me know the timeline?? The Human usually has Peeps start arriving around 6 or so Pacific Time, so she says she’d have to get off the computer by then & pay attention to her guests–I don’t really see why, though.

Very creative. It looks like you spent a lot of time on that. Mom mom’s not patient enough to create good art.

Gnah. I’m so stupid! I was searching for a second cat in the background…. Haha. Good work!

I’m looking forward to the Sunday Selfies tomorrow. I was surprised that your readership has dropped significantly – the Sunday Selfies seem to be so popular? Or did you mean your overall readership?
