Sunday Selfies - Lara.

Do you remember Kozal our guest selfie from September? He was one of the Cats Protection cats in the pen we are sponsoring.
I have good news and am very happy to say that he has been adopted and went to his forever home on November 8th.
Not only will he have a great Christmas, but a lovely home for his golden years.

This pretty lady cat is called Lara and is the latest to arrive in our sponsor pen.
"Lara is a very friendly and talkative girl who loves attention. Once she gets to know you, she is a real lap cat and especially likes a tickle behind her ears or under the tip of her chin. Lara is a beautiful and confident cat who likes to play, especially with a catnip filled mouse. She also enjoys the outdoors and her previous owners have said that she likes to spend time lazing in the sun."

Like Kozal, I don't know why her owners surrendered her but hope she soon finds her forever home too.
Today she is doing the guest selfie.

Caturday Art - Waiting.

The art this week was taken when I had taken the boys for a walk around the fields. They were waiting for me to go back into the garden and took the opportunity to observe the world from a pile of concrete blocks.

Memories - Togetherness.

Not only did the boys do everything together outdoors, they spent all of their indoor time together too.
The following is a selection of them enjoying each other's company.
No words are needed, the photos speak for themselves.
The photos that state ages are pre digital camera and computer.

I was being held down by Flynn in this photo.

This is the photo I used for last week's Caturday Art.

Caturday Art - Sleepy Boys.

I am joining the Caturday Art again this week.

I have missed the last 2 weeks because we have been on a road trip around Ireland.
The internet has been very patchy and I know I have probably missed birthdays and Gotcha Days, so belated good wishes to anyone I have missed.

My art this week is using various Lunapic filters with a simple drop shadow frame.
It is taken from one of my favourite photos of the boys sleeping head to head.

Caturday Art - Boys on a Ladder.


Click on the pictures to enlarge.
If you think this picture looks familiar you are right.
I used the same photo for Caturday Art in July, but there was something about it that I was not happy with. I don't know what it is but I knew I wanted to do another version of it.

Here is the original photo.

And here is the picture I posted in July:
I keep trying to work out what displeases me about it. I think maybe it is the frame with the ladder and boards make too many straight lines. Any opinions? I am happier with today's version.

Caturday Art - Taking it Easy.

I am taking part in the Caturday Art, and this week have gone back to using LunaPic again.
Last week the Stunning CK said she would have preferred to see Flynn's face, so this one's for you, CK.

Caturday Art - Boys in a Field.

I am taking part in the Caturday Art again this week. I made 2 versions of the same photo but didn't know which I liked the best. Let me know in the comments which you prefer. Click to enlarge.
I didn't use my favourite LunaPic for either this time, and tried different photo editors.


For this one I used Pho.To with the watercolour effect and a simple drop shadow frame.


For the second version I used Fotojet. I used 3 or 4 different effects which I made adjustments to. I can't remember exactly what I did, but used a vintage effect and paint overlay amongst others. Then I added a traditional frame.

Visit Athena for more Caturday Art.

Memories - Luggage Inspection.

As most of you know, we always liked to cruise a lot.
Before we went and also when we came back our luggage had to be thoroughly inspected.
The following are photos taken of The Boys doing just that.

Flynn: I have to make it smell right so any strange cats know the humans are spoken for.

Please don't go!

Eric: Uh oh, this can only mean one thing!

I'm not moving so don't try taking it now.

Flynn: I wonder if that will work for me.

Maybe I can pack myself in here.

It didn't work but at least they came home again.

Eric: Hi Dad! Glad to see you again.

I may make this my new bed.

Flynn: Well this is what I think of them deserting us!

Eric: I'm going to make sure the case is all furred up then they won't be able to go again.
