Caturday Art

Earth Day 2017


I usually like to explain how I’ve done my art, but I tinkered so much in PicMonkey, piZap and Picasa, that I lost track of what I did. I can tell you that I used the azalea photo from yesterday’s post as an overlay for the following photo of Misty May. If nothing else the photos represent the beauty and colorfulness of spring.

April-22-2017 Earth Day

Today is Earth Day. To continue to enjoy the natural resources and beauty of our planet, like these azaleas, we all need to support and adopt the practices of Reduce/Reuse/Recycle/Restore/Replenish. Please make a contract with yourself to work 100 percent of the time to embrace and practice these planet-saving habits.


Cat4-001Sunday Selfies

Here’s your reminder that it’s time for you to snap a selfie for tomorrow’s blog hop. I am not certain who will be hosting as all the kitties are less than happy with Dad Tom and me. When eight cats of varied, and in some cases multiple (Lily Olivia), purrsonalities are shut into the kitchen to await Dr. Neel and the indignities of annual exams and vaccines, one cannot expect to be liked. In fact, I may have to go out and scare up a guest host from the neighborhood. You’ll need to drop in tomorrow to find out.

Earth Day 2016 Kitties Blue badge


Please join Kitties Blue as we celebrate Earth Day 2016. Earth Day is all about preserving our planet and not squandering our resources. If we all work together to reduce our carbon footprints by following the five “Rs,” we can save our earth for future generations.

Here are some facts about Earth Day:

  • Earth Day is nearing its 50th anniversary. The now-worldwide holiday was founded in 1970 by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson, of Wisconsin.
  • Earth Day is now observed around the world with activities celebrating the environment and fighting for its preservation.
  • The Earth Day Network has launched an effort to plant 7.8 billion trees (one for every person on earth). Its theme for Earth Day 2016 is “Trees for Earth.”
  • This year’s Earth Day will be marked by the signing of the Paris Agreement that came out of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in December 2015. The United States is one of 120 countries set to sign the agreement.

Other ways to help save our earth, as well as lives, are ones of which you are all familiar:








We need to reduce the numbers of unwanted animals and stop the euthanization of healthy, adoptable animals. We can do this by being responsible pet parents and advocates for those animals needing our help and protection.

So when you think of Earth Day and about what you can do for our planet, remember the animals inhabiting the earth and do all you can to help those who cannot speak for or take care of themselves.

Thank you.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

In celebration of Earth Day, I am sharing a few photos of our yard. We live in the city on a lot and a half, and so I have ample space for flower beds. I apologize for things looking rather untidy. I haven’t had much opportunity for gardening this spring.

The final photo is of Calista Jo enjoying a little of the local fauna…one of our resident squirrels.

Have a glorious day and please take good care of our earth by recycling, reusing and repurposing.
