Caturday Art



Here’s our cheery and colorful art for Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art blog hop. Even with the wide array of colors, I think you will recognize ginger kitty, Cooper Murphy. As I like to do, I used a few different apps to transform the photo below. The Lunapic Nouveau art filter and glass tile effect were added first. I then increased the saturation and added a red border using Picasa. The flower border is from piZap.

Kitten Impossible

If you are a fan of Jackson Galaxy, like I am, you won’t want to miss the episode of My Cat from Hell on Animal Planet, tonight (June 3) at 8 p.m. P/E and 7 p.m. central. Jackson Galaxy teams up with Hannah Shaw (a.k.a. the Kitten Lady) to transport 50 kittens on a life-saving road trip, as part of his Operation Homeward Bound program, to the Humane Society of Boulder Valley, where Galaxy got his start. You can also drop by the live video Q&A on the My Cat From Hell Facebook page prior to the show (7:30 Eastern/4:30pm Pacific).

I was fortunate to interview Galaxy by telephone in November 2015. If you missed the series of posts that resulted from that interview, you can read them by clicking on their titles: Jackson Galaxy Interview; Jackson Galaxy Interview Part 2 & Catify to Satisfy Review; and Jackson Galaxy Interview Part 3.

Sunday Selfie Reminder

Well, it’s time again to hijack your human’s phone or camera and take a stunning selfie of yourself to share on our blog hop tomorrow. Participation has fallen off the last couple of weeks, so Kitties Blue and I hope to see you here tomorrow. This week we are dedicating our post to Dash Kitten‘s Dusty, who recently received his angel wings. Please come by and pay tribute to him.






It must have as that’s what it would take for these two to cuddle. If ever there was a Doozy of a Snoozy, this is it.






Mauricio and Lily Olivia are not friends and never have been. Mauricio does not terrorize Lily like Misty May does, but I am pretty sure he’d rather spend an eternity in hell (frozen or otherwise) in lieu of befriending her.

These photos were taken two nights ago and in the order shown. Mau, Lily and Calista Jo were all piled on top of me in bed. It is clear Lily knows (unless senility has set in at her advanced age of 16) that Mauricio is there. Nonetheless, she decides to remain and even snuggle with him. This is where she sleeps at night, and so I am guessing she had no intention of giving it up, especially to Mauricio.

I am pleased to report that no smacky paws ensued, especially as I most likely would have taken a beating as well.

Other News

I just got a notice that Justin Timberlake is following @KittiesBlue on Twitter. REALLY? Of course, I had to follow back. It would be rude not to…right? If I were thirty years younger and unmarried and he was not married with a child…well I better stop there.

The Cat on My Head will have a special interview near the end of the month with one of your favorite stars from Animal Planet. Be sure and stay in touch here and on Twitter. You won’t want to miss it!
