Hallo there, Effurrybuddies!
It is Me, the Mighty Shimshon (Shimshi for short) a.k.a. The Little Purrince, Furrst of My Name, Master of the Queen's Mischiefs and Captain of the Guard!!! It is MY TURN to lead the J-Cats this week, 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 those deliciously Unpredictable Kitties Blue and their HuMom, Janet.
Tonight, We light the eighth and final Hanukkah candle. Mummy hasn't been as generous about sharing the latkes and sufganiyot with Us as We had hoped. Her excuse is that they are furry unhealthy for kitties - as, indeed, they are for Humans too, dripping with oil and sugar and jam and all that. In her defence, it must be admitted that She, too, cut down on her consumption of these Delicacies. Maybe they should make fish latkes and mouse mousse sufganiyot (donuts) instead (mol).
(It's okay, Mummy. If you don't like them, We can purromise you they won't go to waste - heheheheheh.)
Now, with no further ado, here is My Sunday Selfie.
Mummy says I look extremely poised and extra mancatly in this photo.
Do you agree?
We then headed over to LunaPic, where We experimented with several different artification styles for Our Caturday Art.
Furrst of all, Mummy was so furry pleased with the way the Stained Glass effect turned out for my brofur Caspurr, last week, that We tried a similar filter for Me, set at 50%:
Next up, We chose the Beauty effect - at 55%. (We don't want to overwhelm the world with my Beauty, after all, so We didn't go for the Full Monty - MOL.)
We like the way the slight tinge of pink brings out the green of my eyes.
Next, We tried the Dark art effect (Me being a Master of the Dark Arts, MOL), also at 55%:
This one has grey hints - and in some ways, is rather similar to Our final attempt - Grey (at 75% this time):
Let Us know in the comments section which is your favourite.
In her own bloggie later this week, Mummy hopes to write about the concert in which She and her Caterwauling Club appeared last Fursday, together with the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, in the Israeli premiere of an oratorio in Arabic and English. We make no purromises but She usually posts on Fursday.
In other news - the Omicron variant of
The Dreaded Lurgi the Evil Coronavirus has arrived in Israel but does not appear to have increased the number of seriously ill. Let's hope that it remains so. As for you, Dear Furriends, We are sure you need no Reminder from Us to continue to take all due precautions and make sure your Humans continue to do so as well.
And now, here are the blog hop badges.
Let's get hopping!
Be well. Be safe. We love you all.
