Intruders at Grandpaw's - Caturday Art and Sunday Guest Selfie

Hallo again, Effurrybody!

We apawlogise for having missed last week's Caturday Art blog hop, hosted by the Wise and Beautiful Athena and her HuMum, Marie, as well as the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by the wonderful Kitties Blue and their HuMom, Janet.

You see, Mummy abandoned Us for the Entire Weekend! Step-Grandma went off to Safad for a few days to visit her friends, leaving Grandpaw all alone (well, except for Our Uncle Messi, the Woofie), and so Mummy went to stay with him for the weekend because he's her Daddy and he's almost 93 human years old. She was away for Three Whole Nights - only coming back effurry day for a couple of hours to feed Us and play with Us a bit, and so We didn't want to lose Purrecious Minutes with her writing bloggies.

Grandpaw and Step-Grandma have a big garden, where Uncle Messi likes to hang out, enjoying the huge sunpuddles.  This is his Territory, so when Intruders dare to - well, Intrude - you can be sure that Messi will demand that they leave, in no uncertain terms.

Well, the furry furrst afternoon Mummy was there, suddenly Messi, who was out in the Garden, started barking like crazy. Mummy went out to investigate, and She found that this little, itsy-bitsy kitten, whom She had seen earlier up in the road, being fed by two little boys who live next door to Grandpaw and Step-Grandma, had somehow managed to get into the next-door garden and from there, through a gap in the fence, into Grandpaw and Step-Grandma's Messi's garden!

As you can imagine, Messi was not best pleased!

Warning! Trigger Alert!  This Video contains Loud Barking by excitable Woofie!

But Messi would never actually hurt a kitty - especially not a little baby like this one - and the Intruder Kitty furry soon realised that his Bark is much worse than his Bite, and didn't turn a Whisker.

In fact, the little kitten came back several times over the course of Mummy's visit, and She couldn't resist taking several pictures of it. So We have decided to invite the sweet furry baby to be Our Guest Star this week, in both the Caturday Art and in the Sunday Selfies blog hops.

Furrst of all (since Caturday comes before Sunday - mol), here are Our Entries in the Caturday Art blog hop. Furrst, the original picture, of Messi's Furrst Encounter with the Tiny Intruder:

Here is Athena's Caturday Art badge:

We were torn between two different art effects at LunaPic.
This is the Van Gogh Effect at 50%:

And this is the Beauty Effect, also at 50%:

Which one do you prefurr?

And for the Sunday Selfies, here is a close-up picture of the sweet little kitty.
We think - at least, We hope - that he or she has been adopted by the Family next door to Grandpaw and Step-Grandma.

Furrst, here is the Kitties Blue blog hop badge:

And here is Intruder Kitty's Guest Selfie:

Now all that remains is for Us to wish you all Shavua Tov (a Good Week) and may you and your Humans continue to keep safe from the horrible Coronavirus, which looks, alas, as if it's going to be with Us for quite a while yet.

What a great photo of Uncle Messi and that sweet little kitten! We, too, hope the next-door family adopts that little cutie. :)

I do hope the little kitty has a home with the neighbours. He is very small to be out on his own.
I like both versions of the art. The Van Gogh looks like it is beneath the sea.

Erin the Cat Princess said...

Have a great week too! We do hope kitty has a safe home with someone soon, maybe Messi could adopt the mite and keep it safe?
As to those two delightful pictures, I think the one that leaps at us is the second; just the colours work with Mrs H's aged eyes, MOL

Little Binky and Granny said...

Oh, what a sweet little kitty, but someone had to show it who's boss, right😸 Both the artworks are lovely, each on their own way😸Pawkisses for a Happy Sunday to all of you🐾😽💞

The Island Cats said...

What a cute kitten! We bet Messi just wanted to be friends with him.

Katie Isabella said...

I love seeing the kitten! I hope someone will take him and care for him always. And I like the last pucture best of them all. The one with the 50% beauty effect.

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

Oh the kitty is adorable. Fenris barks at his cats sometimes when he thinks they are doing something they aren't suppose to are when they get too close to his food.

The kitten is precious! I know you missed your mom but sometimes we humans have to do these things. said...

I like the Van Gogh!

Meezer's Mews & Terrieristical Woofs said...

I like the VanGogh!

I sure hope Kitten Little has a real home with responsible peeps, who lets a wee one like that roam about all alone like that anyways?? Sheesh. Maybe you should go back and check on him/her and take it in if need be till a proper home is found...hint, hint...

Sure made for a sweety pie selfie!

We sure hope Little Kitty finds a Forever Home...

Thanks for the warning about the loud barking. I made sure to lower the volume so Messi's barking wouldn't startle me.

The little kitten is adorable. Looks a bit skinny, so hopefully the neighbor boys continue to give it lots of good foods. Maybe kitty and Messi will become good friends and enjoy Grandpa's garden together.

I like both artworks, but I like Van Gogh a little more because it's easier to see the kitten.
