Caspurr's Summer Tummy: Caturday Art and Sunday Selfies

Hallo again, Effurryone!


As you will, no doubt, have guessed, it is I - The Courageous Sir Caspurr the Caspicacious, Furrst of My Name, the Snuggle Bug, Commander-in-Chief of the Impurrial Forces, King of the Tigger-Tabbies, repurresenting the J-Cats on this weekend's blog hops - the Caturday Art blog hop, hosted by the Wise and Beautiful Athena and her HuMum, Marie, and the Sunday Snoozies Selfies blog hop, hosted by those Delightful, Predictably Unpredictable Kitties Blue and their HuMom, Janet.
















Unlike some kitties, who make a big to-do of it if their humans wake them up to take a selfie, I am always happy to pose for Mummy.


We made some really nice artifications this week, using some of Our favourite LunaPic filters.

We also discovered a new filter - Hunger - and since I was feeling a little peckish at the time, it seemed an ideal choice (mol):















As you know, Mummy loves mixing and matching filters, so she tried adding an overlay of Landscape at 65% to the above:













It makes my eyes look somewhat less pink than they do in the furrst artification attempt, and the whole thing looks more like an oil painting.


Mummy's favourite was actually this last one, using the Dark Art effect at 60%, overlaid with Watercolor2 at 30%.  What do you think of it?














As you may have heard,  My Pawtrait is furry much in demand all over the world and We came to arrangements with not one, but TWO art galleries to display these valuable Works of Art:































So here are the blog hop badges:


          





Now, as to what's happening with the Evil Mutant Ninja Coronavirus - the number of confirmed cases over the past 7 days is 67,361. That's according to the Ministry of Health Dashboard, according to whom, that is 42% higher than in the preceding 7 days. The Dashboard also tells us that 16 people have died of the disease in the past 7 days, which is 11.1% less than in the preceding week. However, according to the dashboard, despite the rapidly rising  numbers of people contracting the disease, the Transmission Rate, which ten days ago stood at 1.37, continues to fall and now stands at 1.22. That means the disease is still spreading, but less and less - and that's without any special restrictive measures.


Mummy does not know what to make of all this, so all She (and We) will say on the matter is, continue to take all necessary precautions.


Be well. Be safe. We love you all.

Sir Caspurr, you are a patient kitty to sit for those poses as your mum has now painted several of you. I would not sit still for more than a blink of an eye. We would love to visit the art museum where your portrait is enshrined. Precious

I love all of you too. Have to say my favorite selfie is the same as your Mummy's. I would LOVE to get to that tummy!

Great portraits! One of my personal friends and two of my online friends have had that illness very recently. I guess we just can’t let our guard down.

Casper, you are a regular MEWSeum piece in all your PURR-MEWations. It's hard to pick a fave so I vote for them all.

Oh, that stretched-out selfie is so adorable and we LOVE the bedspread, in its original, but Loonpics does great things, too. Thank you for visiting us.
