Caturday Art


Astrid - Supernatural Art


Astrid was snuggled into the ess scratcher when Dad Tom snapped this photo. She has established a base camp for herself on the dining room table. It’s the ideal location as the cat tree is next to the table. The PTU is on the table, and she often sleeps in it. Mauricio and Fiona also curl up in it occasionally. Astrid also has her fleece bed on the table. It is exclusively her bed. I purchased it just for her at a cat show, and no one else ever sleeps on it. The ess was put on the table the last time Chris came to clean. Somehow it never made it back to the floor, and now I would feel guilty if I moved it.

Today is National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day. Astrid and all the Kitties Blue would like to remind everyone to Adopt not Shop. Lots of kitties have been waiting in shelters for loving homes for a super long time, including our sponsored kitty, Swizzle. She is at PAWS Connecticut, and you can see her photo on our sidebar. Won’t you please consider inviting her to live with you?

I used Dreamscope again this week to create the art. I selected the supernatural filter. The corner designs were added in piZap and the frame using Picasa.

And that brings us to tomorrow and Sunday Selfies. It’s week #90. I have absolutely no idea who will be hosting, one of the Kitties Blue or a guest. Entries were a bit light last week. Hope to see more off you taking part tomorrow. Remember…it’s a great way to make new friends.

This photo is awesome!!! It could be on a greeting card or something! We would buy lots of them, and we’re sure lots of other people would too. Seriously – love this. Sampy does too – he says Astrid looks amazingly beautiful and colorful! He sends her 2349572948752934875 kisses and all his love. We all send lots of love and hugs too!

Happy National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day! You sure are looking artsy, Astrid. We love that effect.

We spent lots of snuggle time with Swizzle today. She got lots of pets and smoochies, and much love. She is such a sweet and gentle kitty.

Love love love your DreamScope! I’m a shelter cat and I didn’t even know that cos I didn’t read my calendar. I didn’t have to feature the tabbies that came before cos they weren’t shelter cats.

Wow, that is a cool effect! And we agree…adopt, don’t shop! There’s so many wonderful cats at the shelter waiting for their furever homes.

Lovely Caturday Art, Astrid is so beautiful.
I am so impressed that she can be on the table and your folks let her stay. I need to talk to my parents about that.

Oh, what a lovely effect this is. You look so wonderfully artsy, Astrid! It’s good to know that we’re not the only ones with sleeping stations set up on tables.

And I love seeing posts that help spread the word about adopting. Such a wonderful message.

We’ll see you tomorrow! Purrs!

Cool artsy photo of Astrid! Sometimes we kitties find some rather inconvenient spots to call OURS – on a table might be in the way for humans but it’s a perfect spot for us!!!! Please tell Mau he did a FAB job on the party at Wolverines last night – I enjoyed my brief visit.

Love, Sammy

Wow! Astrid’s is so pretty!
I didn’t know there was a special day to adopt a shelter animal. I adopted a beautiful Russian Blue Mix boy 6 weeks ago! He had been in the shelter for several months.
There is still a little tension between him at 5 years old wanting to play with his new 8 an 13 year old sisters. But they do play some.
And when there is too much hissing from the 8 year old, I turn on the Cats Meow and he forgets about her! Mol

That is one fine work of art, truly great and the corner designs flow well with the main picture. I’ll be on the blog hop tomorrow, and have a new post out today to share too. Have a GREAT Saturday! Purrs Erin
