Caturday Art and Sunday Selfies With The Three of Us

Greetings, Effurryone!

This is Caspurr the Snuggle-Bug speaking writing. Strictly speaking, it is My Turn to repurresent 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 Selfies blog hop, hosted by the Predictably Unpredictable Kitties Blue and their HuMom, Janet.

Athena's Mum is mourning the loss of her beloved brother, John. If you haven't already done so, do visit her and leave a few kind words.

As I said, it is actually My Turn to star in the blog hops this week, but since it will be Trixie's birthday this coming Furriday, the Glorious 12th, We are going to do things a bit differently.

We took Trixie's selfie from last week and we cropped it into a head-and-shoulders pawtrait.

Next, with the help of PhotoFunia, We turned it into a framed painting on canvas:

And then, since Trixie is the Queen Empurress, We issued a Commemorative Coin and Stamp in honour of Her Birthday:

But since, as I said, it is officially MY turn to be the blog hop star this week, and since it would not be fair if only My Little Brofur, the Mighty Shimshi, were to be left out, here is a Two-Fur of Him and Me:

And here it is, all artified, using LunaPic's Quirky art effect, set to 75%, and framed:

As to Trixie's Birthday - well, you know Us well enough to guess that on Furriday, We shall be holding a Spectactularly Spiffing Pawty at 5pm Israel Time, up in the Enchanted Forest. It will, in fact, be a double celebration, because Furriday is the 15th of Av - Tu b'Av -  in the Mewish calendar. Think of it as something like the Mewish Valentine's Day. We look forward to seeing you all there!

We shall say nothing of the Evil Mutant Ninja Coronavirus this week. Frankly, We have other things to worry about. The Bad Humans in Gaza are shooting rockets at Us again. This morning, they fired some at Jerusalem (which is quite rare). We didn't hear any warning sirens, but Mummy heard two boomies which must have been the sound of the Iron Dome Air Defence System intercepting the rockets,  and then a couple of minutes later, they announced on the news what had happened. We hope this will all be over by Furriday, but at any rate, you need have no fears for your safety. The Enchanted Forest is completely safe and purr-tected, being - well, you know. Enchanted.

Now, here are the blog hop badges:


Till Furriday then.

Be well. Be safe. We love you all.

Caspurr, you are such a good brofur to let beautiful Trixie be the star this week. We also loved your two-fur with Shimshi!

We were so sad to learn of John's passing, and are sending love, purrs, and prayers to Mum Marie and Athena.

We also did see that Iron Dome intercepted those missiles. Thank goodness for that Technology to keep you safe.

Caspurr, you have published a lovely post today. Trixie to celebrate the big 1-2 years we look furrward to. And your choice of art work is museum quality. However, it saddens Lynn and me that there is disruption of your peace and quiet. This is disheartening. Be safe and when I crawl out from under my bed on Friday, I will have Lynn use her thumbs and find this wonderful forest you will be celebrating in. Precious

Precious, this will be the furrst time you are joining Us in the Enchanted Forest, won't it? Do not worry, We will send the landing coordinates directly to your transportation device. How will you be arriving? Tunnel? Flying Carpet?
Oh, and We want to clear up a little misunderstanding. Trixie will be 10 years old on Furriday, not 12. The Glorious 12th (of August) refers to the date. It's a British thing (Mummy was born in the UK).

Katie Isabella said...

Happy Birthday darling beautiful and totally golrious Trixie. I will be in the Enchanted Forest on time. I still have all the coordinates toy you as well as the Forest in the Tunnel's memory. Mommy said sge is going to research Iron Dime as soon as she hits send and I am so so so sorry that happened. XXXXXXX

That's great art. I love the two snuggling sleepers. Stay safe!

CCL Wendy said...

Wow Trixie! You are like the Queen of England to have all of these commemorative items made just for you. I'm impressed. And you finally made the portrait gallery, too, just like Will and Kate.

And Caspurr, you and your little bro are adorable together. Nice choice for two selfies in one. I love the bursts of colour in the Artistic version.

We are wishing you a piece of peacefulness for as long as possible. I understand it's difficult when this kind of thing is just another day, and not considered unusual. Lotsa hugs.

I love the filter, it looks so cool! It reminds me of the pictures in old kids books you find at vintage fairs.

Brian said...

Happy Birthday Trixie, you look fabulous! You two look mighty grand too!

Sending best wishes to Grandpaw for quick healing, and that he stays well and non-slipping! The craziness of all this fighting is beyond us. We pray for peace in your land. My, that is mighty fine art indeed. We love the posrage stamp, but particularly smitten with how the artwork on the bed of you both turned out. Beautiful!
Peace & Purrs
