Caturday Art: Selfie Hijacked

I am totally a daddy’s girl, but when Dad Tom is away, Mom’s lap will do in a pinch. That’s where I was snuggled yesterday morning when I decided to take a selfie. When she’s on the computer, it is easy to stick out a paw and click on the camera. I thought I was doing all my fursibs a favor as well as giving my fans a nice photo of myself. I don’t do that very often.

The next thing I knew, Mom (can you hear the derision in my voice?) was tarting up my photo and turning it into art for Athena’s Caturday Art blog hop. What the meow was she thinking? I like to be artified, and she has made some very nice art using my image. But this was MY selfie, where everyone could admire my natural beauty. MOUSES!

I’ll let you all be the judge on which photo you like better. Here is the natural me…well, almost. Mom removed the freckle from my right eye.


Giulietta's Hijacked Selfie


Admit it…that’s a great selfie! Okay, now that we have established what a terrific job I did with this photo, here’s the arty one. I’ll admit, I do like the colors she used. I hope Clooney will drop in to see me. It’s been such a long time since we’ve gotten together.

To create the art, Mom used the Cloud Front filter from Dreamscope, then the Toxic Purple filter and flower border from piZap and plain, black and purple borders from Picasa.

So, this is my entry in Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art blog hop. To join this fun hop and/or see the other submissions, click on her badge.

Sunday Selfie Blog Hop Reminder

It is fairly obvious that I won’t be back here tomorrow to host our blog hop. After all, my selfie was hijacked and squandered here. I can guarantee you that I have no intention of taking another one. The only thing I know right now is that we will be dedicating tomorrow’s post to the beautiful Snowball from 15 And Meowing. We found out last night that she suddenly received her wings and has left for the Rainbow Bridge. We hope you will join us tomorrow in honoring and remembering Snowball.

Purrs and paw-pats, Giulietta
