Hallo there, Effurrybuddies!
For the third day in succession, it has been raining Cats and Dogs!
Hmmmm. I wonder why they say that. I haven't seen any furriends falling out of the sky - but there sure has been an AWFUL lot of skywater. The Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) rose 5cm last night, thanks to the steady deluge.
And it's coooooooold! Tonight, for the furrst time this winter (if We are not mistaken), the tempurratures are set to fall below zero! Brrrrr!!!!! That's a whole lot of Cold. We shall snuggle up with Mummy under the duvet and try to remember that tomorrow is Tu b'Shvat, which is supposed to herald the coming of Spring. It will help if the Weather Prophets are right and the rain stops late this afternoon.
This week, it is My Turn to repurresent the J-Cats in the Caturday Art Blog Hop, hosted by the Wise and Beautiful Athena and her HuMum, Marie, as well as in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, hosted by the Delightfully Unpredictable Kitties Blue and their HuMom, Janet.
Here I am, then - The Mighty Shimshon (Shimshi for short) aka The Little Purrince, Furrst of My Name, Stealer of Hearts, Master of the Queen's Mischiefs, and Captain-of-the-Guard.
And here are two versions of My Artified Self - both created with the help of LunaPic. The furrst one uses the Crayon filter at 80%, with an overlay of Sadness (because of the depressing weather) at 25%:
Then We tried Sunshine (which We are all longing for), also at 80%, with an overlay of Flowers at 40%, in honour of Tu b'Shvat:
Which do you prefurr?
Here, now, are the Blog Hop Badges:
And how could We fail to mention the Evil Old Coronavirus, about which Mummy had a rant in her own bloggie last Fursday and the week before that and will almost certainly have another rant about later this week too?
It seems the Evil Ninja Mutant Omicron has spawned a sub-species but nobody knows yet whether or not it will prove more, or less, dangerous than Omicron. What does seem to be happening is a huge spike, not only in the numbers infected by the virus (which variant, We don't know), but also in the numbers of seriously ill - and that includes people vaccinated with four shots. What they are not telling us is, how many of these are people with existing serious health issues.
At any rate, even though there is no direct government instruction to do so, Mummy's Bible Studies class has moved over to Zoom, and her Caterwauling Club is holding rehearsals in a hybrid form - in person for the Brave and via Zoom for the Cautious. Mummy is one of the latter, We are thankful to say.
We hope you and your Humans are also being Cautious and taking effurry Precaution against the Evil Pestilence.
Be well. Be safe. We love you all.
