Caspurr's Caturday Art and Sunday Selfie for Yom Kippaw

Greetings, Effurryone and Shavua Tov (a Good Week).


It is ME - I mean I - Caspurr the Courageous, King of the Tigger-Tabbies here this time, to represent the J-Cats in the Caturday Art blog hop, hosted by the Wise and Beautiful Athena and her HuMum, Marie and in the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by our wonderful furriends, the Kitties Blue and their HuMom, Janet.





Mummy woke Me up to take this Selfie, and - as you can imagine - I was not best pleased!

Then She artified it with the Luce filter from the Paper Artist app on her meowbile phone:






Here are the badges of the two blog hops:



       



This is going to be a furry short post today, because this evening is the start of the 25-hour-long fast of Yom Kippaw, the Mewish Day of Atonement, and We all have lots and lots to do to get ready (although only the Humans actually fast). It will be a furry strange Yom Kippaw, because of the new lockdown (see Mummy's own bloggie for more on that).



Mewish people (and kitties) believe that on Rosh Hashana (the Mew Year, which We celebrated last week), the Great Cat in the Sky judges the whole world, both animal and human, and writes down in a Big Book, the fate of each and effurryone of them. Who will live, who will die, who will prospurr, who will be brought low....
For ten days, by purrayer and good deeds, We still have the oppurtunity to change that decision - but on Yom Kippaw, in the evening, as the day ends and the stars come out, the Book is signed and sealed. That is why the traditional greeting for Yom Kippaw is "May you be sealed in the Book of Life" (G'mar chatima tova).

May you all be sealed in the Book of Life, dear Furriends. May the horrible coronavirus plague go away, may you and your Humans be happy and healthy - and may effurry kitty and woofie and effurry other lost and homeless animal find their fur-ever homes.
