Caturday Art with Shimshi the Poster Pinup

Hallo again, Effurrybuddies!

Once again, it is time to take part in the Caturday Art Blog Hop hosted by Our Dear Furriend, Athena (who is a furry Wise and Beautiful Kitty) and her HuMum, Marie.

Mummy took this picture of Me on her Meowbile Phone, using one of the phone's filters, which is supposed to make me look like a poster or a painting:

But She wasn't satisfied, so She used LunaPic to add a bit more colour with the Floating Art Effect and this was the Result:

Honestly, I don't know, kitties! The Things I do for the sake of Art!

What do you think?

Now, before I go, I just want to wish you all Shavua Tov from all of Us. It's the last week of August - so Make Hay while the Sun shines (mol)!

And now, let's hop. Furrst, here is the badge:

And off We go!

Queen Trixie Celebrates Black Cat Appreciation Day (and Her Birthday) with Caturday Art

Hallo, Loyal Furriends (and Subjects)!

It is I - Queen Trixie, Empurress of Jerusalem, Israel and the Entire Middle East, Guardian of the Boudoir, Alpha Kitty Extraordinaire.

You remember what today, August 17th is, don't you? Of course you do.

It is Black Cat Appreciation Day.

And, as Caspurr told you last week, We are combining My Birthday Celebrations with the Black Cat Appreciation Day festivities. Monday (August 12th) was my 7th Birthday.
That is a furry special annifurrsary for a Black Cat.

Seven is a furry lucky number.
And Black Cats bring Good Luck!
So a Black Cat celebrating her Seventh Birthday is a furry strong Good Luck Charm!
And when you combine that with Black Cat Appreciation Day - well, the Good Luck is multiplied - sevenfold (mol).

So, We are going to be celebrating all night long up in the Enchanted Forest, under the (almost) full moon. Drop in and celebrate with Us. We are going to scoff all manner of flavours of Fancy Feast, tuna pie, salmon mousse, caviar and micecream and get high on niptinis and dance till dawn.

We are also going to be taking part in the Caturday Art Blog Hop hosted by the wise and beautiful Athena and her HuMum, Marie.  For this, We had a little help from PhotoFunia...

In honour of my birthday - and Black Cat Appreciation Day - I was interviewed by Vogue Magazine. They were furry interested in my beauty and fashion tips (what can I say, ladycats? When you've got it - you've got it!)

And, best of all, the National Gallery in London, England, commissioned My portrait from Monsieur Miaownet - so, if you happen to live there, or are visiting, I suggest you go to see it.

Ah, fame!

Now, dear furriends, don't furrget to join the pawty tonight. We are so looking forward to seeing you.

Before joining the blog hop, We want to wish you Shavua Tov (a Good Week), as is our custom.

And off We go:

Caspurr's Caturday Art

Hallo there, Effurryone!

It is Me, Caspurr, King of the Tigger-Tabbies. It should really be Trixie, because it's her birthday the day after tomorrow, but since she gets to celebrate next Saturday as well, August 17th being Black Cat Appreciation Day, she has graciously consented to allow Me to represent the J-Cats in this week's Caturday Art Blog Hop, hosted by the beautiful and wise cat goddess, Athena and her HuMum, Marie.

So, I thought I would share with you a couple of pictures of Me and My New Magical Flying Carpet (as you may recall, Shimshi told you how We have one each).

On Wednesday, I took the beauteous BellaDharma, my Panfur Purrincess, out for a spin, and We flew over some furry interesting places, mountains and lakes, forests and seas.  I had a wonderful time, and I hope the lovely BellaD did, also.  She gave Me a few Anxious Moments though, because she was so excited, she kept standing up - and I was really afraid she might fall off! Fortunately, however, she has a great sense of balance!

We have two pictures to share; one is mostly blue, inspired by the lakes and seas We saw, and the other is greener, repurresenting the forests and jungles.

Mummy used LunaPic for both of them, but She can't remember exactly which effects she used. She thinks one might have been Splash and the other Jungle, but She's not 100% certain.

Anyway, We like them both. Which do YOU prefurr?

We actually have a furry busy week coming up. Tomorrow is the fast of Tisha B'Av. The day after, Monday, is Trixie's birthday, as I already told you. Friday is Tu B'Av, which is the the Mewish-Jewish Valentine's Day.  And next Caturday is Black Cat Appreciation Day - which is when We are going to have Trixie's Official Birthday Pawty.

I am telling you all this now, to give you advance warning for the Pawty, which will take place in Our Favourite Venue, the Enchanted Forest, at dusk (about 8 pm). We hope to see you all there.

Now, We would like to wish you all Shavua Tov (a Good Week) before joining the Blog Hop.

First, here is the Badge:

And off We go!

Uncle Messi's Sunday Guest Selfie

Greetings, Effurrybody!

Shavua Tov  (a Good Week) to you all!

We couldn't agree on which of Us would star in today's Sunday Selfie Blog Hop, hosted by Our Furriends the Kitties Blue and their Human, Janet, over at The Cat on My Head blog, so We decided to invite Our Woofie Uncle, Messi, to post a Guest Selfie instead.  And since he doesn't get to share photos of his handsome self online too often (as his Humans, Grandpaw and Step-Grandma, don't have a blog and neither does Messi), We helped him make a really impurressive selfie and added a fancy picture furrame, just for Good Measure.

For those of you who haven't heard of Messi before, We should explain that his Pawrents are Mummy's Daddy and Step-Mum, which makes him Our Uncle.

This picture was taken on a Furry Hot Day last week. Although Grandpaw and Step-Grandma have Airconditioning in their home, Messi prefers to keep cool by lying on the floor-tiles in the hall, which is the shadiest part of the house.

Grandpaw and Step-Grandma have a big garden too, so Messi is a furry lucky woofie. And a furry handsome one too, don't you agree?

Okay, now it's time to start hopping. First the badge:

And away We go:

Shimshi's Magical Mystery Flying Carpet

Hallo again, Effurrybuddies!

This is Me, the Mighty Shimshon (Shimshi for short), aka The Little Purrince, Captain of the Guard and Master of the Queen's Mischiefs!

At long last, I have got me some wheels wings fringes!
Yes, you heard right. No longer will I have to argue with my fursibs over the use of Our one and only Teleport Tunnel!  Our Human bought three new rugs for the living room so now, each of Us has Our Furry Own Magical Flying Carpet.


I can go wher-effur I want, when-effur I want! I can drop in on my furriends for surprise visits! I can take beautiful ladycats out for a spin without having to share my plans with Trixie or Caspurr!


Here she is! Isn't she a beauty!

Come to think of it - I look purrty good too, if I do say so myself (mol).

So good, in fact, that I am ready to take part in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop hosted by my Good Furriends, the Kitties Blue and their Human, Janet!

Before doing so, I want to wish effurryone Shavua Tov - a Good Week - and that the weather, wherever you are, be not too hot and not too cold, but JUST RIGHT.

Here goes!

Furrst, the Badge:

And away We go!

Sunday Selfies: Moonlight Sonata

Hallo again, Effurryone and Shavua Tov (a Good Week) to you all!

It is I, Caspurr the Courageous, King of the Tigger-Tabbies, here to represent the J-Cats in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop hosted by the Kitties Blue and their Human, Janet. They are celebrating their seventh blogoversary today, and We wish them a huge Mazal Tov.

This picture was taken last week. As you can see, I was looking furry anxious in this picture - and with Good Reason! The Moon was being stolen, right before my eyes, and there was nothing I could do to stop it! 

Mummy explained to Us that this was something called a Lunar Eclipse and that the Moon would come back in a few hours. It hadn't really been stolen, She said - just borrowed. But I was still worried. I was wondering if the Thieves would who had stolen the Moon would return it in time for my romantic moonlight picnic with the beauteous BellaDharma from The Purrfect Pad, which I had planned for the following evening, the night of the Full Moon. You can't have a moonlight picnic with no moon, can you?

I waited and waited and waited and sure enough, just as I was beginning to despair, I saw that the Moon had escaped its captors and was slowly coming back to Us.
What a relief!

The following night, she was shining in all her splendour - and my Panfur Princess and I had a wonderful picnic up in the Enchanted Forest, where the wild nip grows.

Did any of you witness the theft of the Moon?  Did it make you anxious?

At all events, the Moon is back where she always was, in plenty of time to celebrate the furrst Human lunar landing fifty years ago (that's like - about a gazillion in cat years). Why, that 's before even Minxie, Mummy's furry furrst kitty, was born! Mummy was around then, though, just about. You know she's gazillions of years old, don't you (mol)?

Okay, time to join the Blog Hop. Here is the badge, furrst of all:

Sunday Selfies: Introducing Lola

Hallo again, Effurrybuddies!

Shavua Tov (a Good Week) to you all!

It's time for Sunday Selfies - and this week, We have a guest selfie from Our newest Furrmily Member. Meet Lola!

Yes, you have got it in one! Lola is a Bunny - and her Human is Mummy's youngest niece, so We reckon that makes Lola our cousin, sort of (cousin once removed, Mummy says - but We don't see why. Nobody has removed her anywhere!)

It seems that whatever Lola wants, Lola gets (mol). She even roams freely about the house. We've never heard of a bunny that was allowed to do that.

We think Lola rather resembles Trixie in many ways - except for the long ears. What do you think?

Here is Trixie:

And here is Lola:

Both ladies have sleek, glossy black furs and although Trixie doesn't have big, floppy ears, she does have a big, floofy tail. Why, they could almost be sisfurs, don't you agree?

Of course, We don't know yet who is better at bunny kicking (mol).

As Lola is new to Our Furmilly, and her HuMum doesn't have a blog, We are entering Lola for this week's Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, hosted by the Kitties Blue and their Human, Janet.

Here is the blog badge:    

And off We go!
