Here we are: the first Caturday of 2016. Those of you who follow us won’t be surprised to see who has claimed the premier Caturday Art spot for the new year.


Wintery Caturday Art


It’s our favorite poser…Mauricio! Can a man cat be a diva? I am hoping Allie‘s mom is standing by when Allie sees this. She has a tendency to faint when her boyfriend is looking particularly handsome. And I think you’ll have to admit that he is that.

I used Pixlr Express this week to create our art. I wanted something that looked wintery and found four overlays, that when combined, gave me the appearance I desired.

This is our entry for Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. If you haven’t tried your paw at some computer-created art or entered the blog hop, why not make that a goal for 2016. The internet abounds with free photo-editing applications. If anybody would like a copy of the list of these apps I have compiled, just let me know in the comments.

Tomorrow will be our first Sunday Selfies Blog Hop for 2016. If you haven’t tried a selfie yet, make that another goal for 2016. Lisbeth will be our host, and she challenges all the other tuxies in the blogosphere to join her. As most of you know by now, all anipals, not just cats, are welcome and encouraged to enter. We look forward to seeing what unusual critters hop over tomorrow.




Fiona asked me to thank everyone for their purrs and prayers and for posting about her on your blogs and Facebook. Though she is now being very picky about her treats and still won’t eat renal food, she’s been eating a bit more. Unfortunately she is really fighting us when it comes to the SubQ fluids. She hasn’t gotten her full amount the last two days, so she still needs those purrs and prayers. She will see Dr. Neel again on Monday and post an update on Tuesday.

Happy New Year, dearest friends.
