Melting Point - Caturday Art and Sunday Selfies


Hallo again, Effurryone!

It is ME, Sir Caspurr the Courageous, Furrst of My Name, Commander-in-Chief of the Impurrial Forces, King of the Tigger-Tabbies and I am here to tell you, it is HOT!  Spring was just getting into its stride when all of a sudden, it was SUMMER!  It is 35 degrees Celsius at present (just after 2 pm) and We are looking at a week-long Sharav, with temperatures here in Jerusalem the Capital hovering around 39 degrees C till the weekend!

I have to say, under the circumstances, staying home doesn't seem such a bad idea. Indoors, at least We have the air-conditioning to keep Us cool. Only a Mad Woofie (or an Englishman) would go out in temperatures like these if they didn't have to!

Mummy went out of the house for the furrst time last week to visit her Daddy (a.k.a. Grandpa), whom she hasn't seen in purr-son since the start of the lockdown two months ago - but since he hasn't been out anywhere either and lives here in the neighbourhood, We don't really consider that "going out". However, She thinks She might, after all, go to have a haircut some time next week. We worry about her - but We do understand. If She waits much longer, they're going to need a machete to hack off all that excess growth (mol)!

Today being Sunday, We are taking part in the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by the Kitties Blue and their HuMom, Janet - and also in the Caturday Art blog hop, hosted by the furry Wise Cat Goddess, Athena and her HuMum, Marie.

This is ME, doing the only really sensible thing a cat can do in a heat-wave:





   




That's right. Trying to take a nap.  Not so easy to do when Humans insist on shoving flashy boxes in your face and badgering you to take a selfie!

Are you hearing Me, Human Mummy Dearest?

Anyway, this is Our Entry for the Sunday Selfies blog, and here is their badge:




















Mummy decided to turn this into a painting, for the Caturday Art blog hop - and here is their badge:

Furrst of all, she used the Oil Painting Special Effect from PicResize:









But She decided that one could hardly spot the difference. It certainly didn't look arty enough, so She added the Surreal Painting Effect from LunaPic:







Now, that looks much more appropriate as a piece of Caturday Art, don't you think?


One last thing - We wish you all Shavua Tov (a Good Week) and remind you all that coming up this Furriday, We have Jerusalem Liberation Day, the 53rd anniversary of the liberation and re-unification of Jerusalem in the Six Day War, so We shall be celebrating with a picnic and barbecue the following day, Shabbat, up in the Enchanted Forest, which is Our Favourite picnic spot - and which has a wonderful panoramic view of Jerusalem and especially, the Old City. We shall also be celebrating (albeit a week late) Shimshi's sixth Gotcha Day which occurred last Friday, May 15th. Do say you'll join Us!

And now - let's join the blog hops!  Off We go!

That's a very nice selfie, Caspurr. We definitely need haircuts, too! Staying inside in the air conditioning sounds like a great idea. :)

Sometimes I think the filter on a photo can be really interesting even if its subtle don't you?

Love the photo and art! So glad we're able to get out a little more, but not looking forward to the heat of summer.

The Indulged Furries said...

Oh, that's too hot! But at least you have air condition to stay comfortable. Caspurr, you have the right idea trying to nap through the heat wave.

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Marley, and Laz) said...

Yeah, we went from Winter to Summer over the weekend! 50F for a month and then 80... We miss Spring.
