Sawyer is decked out in green (and yellow) today in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. I selected a filter from Painnt entitled, Greenify, with the hope of getting something worthy of a St. Patrick’s Day post. I was so pleased with the outcome that I didn’t add any additional effects from Painnt but stuck with the original. The green and yellow border flowers were added with piZap and the frame with Picasa.
I selected this photo of Sawyer on the catio specifically for how “busy” the photo is, hoping this would make for interesting art. And it did.
As promised yesterday, Mauricio is sharing his St. Paddy’s Day limerick from 2015. (If you’d like to see some additional St Patrick’s Day limericks by Kitties Blue, click here.)
Celebrating St. Gertrude
March 17 is also the feast day of another important saint. St. Gertrude of Nivelles, who lived from 621 to 659, is the patron saint of gardeners, travelers, widows, recently deceased people, the sick, the poor and the mentally ill. People call upon St. Gertrude for protection from mice, rats, fever, insanity and mental illness. But first and foremost, St. Gertrude is the patron saint of cats and cat lovers. So while your hoisting a green beer or two today, give a toast to St. Gertrude.
Sunday Selfies: A Birthday and a Remembrance
Tomorrow will be a big day on the Sunday Selfies blog hop. We will be celebrating the seventh birthday of Giulietta and Angel Fiona. This is a day filled with joy and sadness for all the Kitties Blue. We are happy to be celebrating with Giulietta but wish Fiona was still here to enjoy her special day with all of us. In honor of her birthday, Giulietta will be your host for tomorrow’s hop.
Additionally we will be remembering Maggie. Maggie is mommy’s friend, Mary Jane’s, woofie who recently received her wings.
We hope to see lots of you here tomorrow for the birthday celebration and then hope you’ll stick around and join the hop.
