Tea for Two: Caturday Art and Sunday Selfies (and Twofers) with Trixie and her Brofurs

Hallo, Effurrybody!


Here We are again - MOI, Queen Trixie, Furrst of My Name, Empurress of Jerusalem, Israel and the Entire Middle East, Queen of Hearts, Guardian of the Boudoir, Alpha-Kitty Extraordinaire, in Our furrst post of the Autumn.














Since this is Our furrst post of the Autumn, that makes it rather special, so although it is officially My Turn to lead the J-Cats as We join 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 Always Unpredictable Kitties Blue and their HuMom, Janet), I have graciously decided to share with you not only My Selfie (seen above) - from which We created this week's Caturday Art - but also a selection of twofers with My Brofurs.

Furrst of all, here is My Caturday Art - a pawtrait of MOI in my Magical Tunnel, using LunaPic's Dreaming Art Effect, at 40%:























I know some of you are probably wondering why We seem to use LunaPic to the exclusion of all else, (except, occasionally, PhotoFunia) but the truth is, We think if you have got hold of a Good Thing, and you like it, why change it?


And now for the Mancats.

Here are Caspurr and Shimshi, just settling down for an after-breakfast nap - and purr-bably planning some mischiefs along the way:



















And here is a furry, furry rare picture of Me and Caspurr together:



















I need to keep A Watchful Eye on him, lest He decide to pounce on Me. Those pesky mancats have NO Respect for My Rank as Queen-Empurress!

And finally, here is one of Me and Shimshi. I have been a bit wary of him too, lately, because he has been having these funny attacks when he goes all hissy and growly and then pounces on his own tail - but I am always afraid he is going to pounce on Me!
























Next, here are the Blog Hop badges:




                


Tomorrow, Monday, is the last day of the Sukkot (Tabernacles) festival, followed on Tuesday by Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah. Outside of Israel, these two holidays are celebrated on successive days, but here in Israel, they are concurrent.  If you want to learn more about them, you can go to the link above.
For those of you who celebrate the Mewish holidays, once again We would like to wish you Chag Sameach (חג שמח - A Happy Holiday).

Last, but by no means least, We want to remind you (as if anyone could forget) that the Evil Coronavirus is still furry much among Us, and so you and your Humans should continue to exercise Caution and take all necessary measures to remain healthy.

Be well. Be safe. We love you all.

Trixie, we love your selfie and your artwork. We sure hope the boys don't pounce on you. You can tell them we said so, too. :)

Chag Sameach!

Your art is lovely. It highlights you more in your tunnel. It is nice to see your brothers, but they shouldn't pounce on you.
I use Lunapic 99% of the time. Sometimes I have used Deep Dream Generator but they mostly turn out really weird so I go back to Lunapic.

We sure enjoyed that Selfie and Art. Really amazing. We used to use other photo art programs than LunaPic too and feel the same way. It is really fun and has so many effects you can mix and match you can always do something new, why switch!
Glad seeing you fellows down under too MOL

Nice to see you all. You all look great. I wonder why your brother chases his tail? beautiful art. Chag Sameach! XO

Cathy Keisha said...

Cool art! You got your whole family involved in this post.

Kea said...

We love your selfie and artwork too! Angel Annie would agree about the mancats, you have to keep an eye on them, lest they try something foolish. You will keep them in line, though! :-)

Katie Isabella said...

Trixie, you tell those mischievous boys do NOT pounce on the Queen! And tell them Katie Isabella said so! (I know they won't care one bit, but it's worth a try)!

The Indulged Furries said...

Fantastic pictures of everyone. And I really like your art and how the filter you used highlighted the swirl in the tunnel. Lunapic has many fun art effects and we use it often too. I'm sorry to hear Shimshi is still having his little attacks. I wonder what's causing that.

Linda said...

You asked where the picture of the fountain was taken. It was at the Inn at Little Washington in Virginia.
