Shimshi's Celebratory Caturday Art and Sunday Selfie

Hallo again, Effurrybuddies!

Here I am again, the Mighty Shimshon (Shimshi for short) a.k.a. The Little Purrince,  Furrst of My Name, Master of the Queen's Mischiefs and Captain of the Guard. 

Furrst things furrst. I want to wish effurryone Shavua Tov (a Good Week) and also Chodesh Tov (a Good Month) - today being the furrst of the Mewish month of Sivan. And to our Meowslim furriends, who are celebrating Eid el-Fitr today, We also wish Eid Meowbarak!

We, too, have been celebrating - and shall be celebrating still more.  Yesterday, We had a pawty to celebrate Jerusalem Liberation Day, which fell on Furriday and also (belatedly) My Gotcha Day (which fell the Furriday before).  Can it really be six years since Mummy and I gotcha-ed each other? Doesn't time fly? I feel as if Mummy and I and my fursibs have always been together! And this coming  Furriday, We shall be celebrating the Mewish festival of Shavuot (Pentecost).

The weather has been furry strange. Last week, you remember, We had a dreadful heatwave.  It was so hot, Mummy just HAD to get her birds' nest hair cut!  Today, the tempurratures have plummeted to about 16 degrees C and this morning, it was absolutely POURING with rain.






I watched the rain for a while till I got bored and then resumed my guard duties on top of the highest of the kitchen cupboards, which is one of My Favourite Snoopervising Purrches.

While I was there, Mummy tricked Me into taking a Sunday Selfie, to repurresent Us on the Sunday Selfies blog hop hosted by Our Sweet Furriends the Kitties Blue and their HuMom, Janet.



















And then, with the help of LunaPic, She turned Me into a stained-glass window, which is one of Our Favourite Artsy-Fartsy Effects:


















This will be Our Entry in the Caturday Art blog hop, hosted by the Wise and Lovely Athena and her HuMum, Marie.  





And now, all that remains is for Me to remind those of you still in Lockdown - even only pawtial Lockdown - to remember to observe the rules that are in place to keep you and your Humans safe. Be well, all of you - and may the Great Cat in the Sky continue to watch over you.


That said - let's blog hop!
