Hallo again, Effurrybuddies!
Guess what today is!
Yes, you're right, Furrst Guess!
Today is My Gotcha Day! On this day eight years ago, 15th May 2014, Step-Grandma scooped Me up and brought Me to live with my Human and My Fursibs. Before that, I was wandering around furry dejected and afraid, because my Kitty Mama had rejected Me. I had a few ups and downs in the beginning, but that day was the Bestest Day in My Life!
I know what you are wondering - and, of course, the answer is YES! Of course We are going to be having a big Celebration up in the Enchanted Forest later this afternoon, at 5 pm Israel Time, to which you are all invited! There will be salmon mousse, and tuna pie, and mice cream and niptinis and catmint juleps and silvervine cocktails and grilled trout and cakes and....
Okay, I have calmed down, Mummy. I was just furry excited, because We have had to limit Our celebrations for the past couple of years, due to the Evil Mutant Ninja Coronavirus - and now We are back to normal and can have all Our Furriends over. You know how We love a good Pawty...
Nor have I forgotten that it is My Turn to lead My Fellow J-Cats on this weekend's blog hops - the Caturday Art blog hop, hosted by the Wise and Beautiful Athena and her HuMum, Marie, and the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by the Deliciously Unpredictable Kitties Blue and their HuMom, Janet.
Here is My Selfie, to begin with:
Pictured here with Me are a couple of My Pawcelain Sisters from Mummy's Doll Collection. The blonde is Miss Dorothea and the brunette is Miss Laura.
In honour of My Gotcha Day, We experimented with no fewer than FIVE of LunaPic's beautiful Art Effects. Do tell Us which of them you like best. We are pawticularly interested to know what you think of the black and white ones, with which We have been having a lot of fun lately.
Furrst of all, here is one using Scribble, at 54%:
Next, in the same style, more or less, is the same picture using Sketch 2 at 72%:
Our third version uses the vibrant colours of the Flowers filter, set at 77%:
Still furry colourful, but with a more textured effect, Our next attempt uses Yarn, at 67%:
