We hope you all had a wonderfully Meowy Chrissymouse, and got lots of noms and treats and prezzies.
Today, as We purromised last week, We shall be commemorating Angel Princess PixieCato (aka Pixie), who was a co-founder of this blog and who flew away to the Rainbow Bridge ten years ago last Fursday, on December 23rd, 2011, after losing her Battle with Kidney Disease.
Angel Pixie came to Mummy in 1995, a few weeks after Angel Possum, because Mummy was strongly of the opinion that little kittens should have other kittens to play with. She picked out Pixie from a litter of four sisters. Pixie's foster Mummy told Our Mummy that Pixie's name was Elsa - but Mummy could see that was a mistake and indeed, as soon as they got home, Possum's new sisfur told Mummy her real name was Pixie. Well, not her REAL real name, of course, not the Secret Ineffable Name known only to each kitty herself/himself - but the one She wanted Mummy to use.
Possum and Pixie loved each other furry much, as you can see from this picture, which Mummy still uses as the banner of her own bloggie:
Possum is the one on the left and Pixie is on the right.
For quite a few years, Pixie and her Big Brofur, Possum, used to post articles of Impawtance to the Feline World, on Mummy's own purrsonal Bloggie. But then they decided it was time they had their Furry Own Space, and so this bloggie was born.
We have decided that Pixie's pawtrait should repurresent the J-Cats in 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.
So here is Precious Pixie's Selfie, taken when she was nearly thirteen years young, on June 10th 2008:
We artified this pawtrait with LunaPic's Harsh Lighting filter and then used PhotoFunia to frame it and hang it in a big art gallery, so as to share Pixie's beauty with the whole world:
But then We decided that, since this week sees the last Caturday Art and Sunday Selfies Blog Hops of 2021, We would also make Pixie Our Calendar Girl for the Mew Year, so We artified her pawtrait once again, this time with LunaPic's Dreaming effect at 60%, and put it in one of PhotoFunia's calendars.
Let's hear it for Miss 2022:
By the time We write Our next Post, it will already be 2022, so We would like to take this oppurrtunity to wish you all a furry Happy Mew Year - not forgetting to remind you all that that confounded Evil Coronavirus is still with Us (does anyone remember a time when it wasn't?) and that you and your Humans still need to take effurry precaution so as not to catch it - or maybe We should say "not to let it catch you".
