The Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week the Flashback comes from March 2012 and is called:
Why?
Eric: Why are you shouting at me to get down? My feet are nowhere near the worktop.

Look carefully. Am I touching the worktop? I thought not, so what's your problem?

Flynn: I'm a good boy. You won't catch me up there.

I have used the second photo for my Caturday Art. As usual I used Lunapic starting with Landscape at 50%, Then Tuscany at 40% finishing with Sunshine at 20%.


You can find more Caturday Art by visiting Athena the Cat Goddess.


Of course I have also made it into a puzzle. Click on the small picture to go to Jigsaw Planet to do it.

Friday Flashback. - On Patrol.

This week for the Friday Flashback I thought I would do something different and have put together a few very short Mancat Monday posts that would otherwise not get repeated.

ON PATROL.


Warning! These grounds are guarded by Mancats on Patrol!

Vishus Deer Lookout.
On our walk around the fields yesterday, we went down into our bottom field. It was very exciting because we don't get down there very often.We have to go through the field with the horsies and sometimes mum has to shout at them because they chase us. This is the field where the vishus deer go, so we make sure mum has a can of Mao and Rocky's Vishus Deer Repellent. I was doing my lookout duty for the vishus deer. I didn't see them but I bet they were watching us. It was okay though because me and Flynn are Mancats and we would protect our mum.

Sky Patrol.
High up in a tree is a good place to do your Mancat patrols.


Two Way Patrol.
It is easier for Mancats to purrtect their property if they both sit facing opposite directions so no introoders can sneak past.

Mousie Patrol.
Now there is some new hay in the barn, we have to work very hard on mousie lookout. We make sure mum pays us well with treats.

After Patrol Relaxation.
Hard working mancats need time to relax when they have made sure everything is safe.



I have used the first photo for my Caturday Art.
Using Lunapic as usual, I started with Beauty at 30% followed by Tuscany at 40% and finished with Frida at 30%

Sunday Selfies.

We have just come back from a cruise to Spain and the Canary Islands which is the reason I haven't been visiting for the past 2 weeks.
While we were on Gran Canaria I met a sweet little tabby who agreed to a selfie so I could have a Sunday Selfie post.

He was very friendly and enjoyed a lot of petting.
There were a lot of street cats around there and they all looked healthy. Many were ear tipped although this little man was still entire.

The blue box on the right is a dry and warm shelter and the bowl of food was full.
This handsome boy was more interested in eating than taking a selfie.

We saw several locals feeding them as we walked around. One old lady was pushing a barrow of freshly caught sardines and threw one to one of the cats. I wish I had got a photo because the cat looked so funny running off with a big fish hanging out of either side of it's mouth!

Another local had chopped up some meat and put in bowls under the awning of his cafe.
It was good to see that they care for the cats along the harbour-side.

You can see more selfies with the Kitties Blue at The Cat on my Head.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week the Friday Flashback comes from March 2012 and is called:
Finding Flynn.

Flynn is going in the tractor shed. I better see what he's up to.

Where did he go? Are you in the trailer Flynn?

Nope, he's not here.

Oh, this is a nice sun puddle though.

Yes, a very nice one that's too good to waste.

S'pose I should look for Flynn.

Nope, this sun puddle has got my name on it.

He's been gone a long time! I can't see him so I hope he hasn't got lost somewhere.

He's  completely disappeared!

I better go home and see if he's gone back there.

Ah, there he is! I should have guessed he'd be looking for fevvers in the hedge.

My art this week isn't taken from any of these photos.
I saw Marv's art last week and really liked it. He used Google's Deep Dream Generator and I had not heard of it before. I tried it on one of Eric's photos and like the way it came out so am using it this week.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

Before this week's flashback I want to say thank you to everyone who left a comment on my post for Cornwall Cats Protection.
There was a total of 82 comments making £41 which I have rounded up to £50 and sent to them.

Now for the Flashback - Looking for Mousies!

We have had a few dry days and some have even been sunny, so that means we can go for walks again.

We are looking for mousies, but it has been mild and wet this winter which means the grass kept growing. That means it is thick and matted underneath which makes it hard for us to get to them. It probably makes the mousies happy though.

We know they are here because we heard them squeaking.

But where are they?

Are they over there?

or over here?

Maybe when the horses have been in here and eaten the grass it will be easier for us.

They may have been in here, but it looks like the Mr. Badger got here first.

I have used the first photo for my Caturday Art this week.
I started with Beauty at 40%, followed by Abstract at 35% and finished with Sunshine also at 35%.

I have also made it into a puzzle. Click on the small picture to go to Jigsaw Planet to do it.
I have also put a link in my sidebar for any puzzle addicts like me so you can click on it to see all of my puzzle albums. It is the top picture in the sidebar.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

Before the Flashback I just want to remind you that today is the last day of the Commentathon for the Cats Protection Cornwall Adoption Centre.
Any comments before midnight BST which is 7pm Eastern and 4pm Pacific will still add another 50p per comment to the total.

This week the flashback comes from February 2012 and was called:

Rasslin'
Flynn: It hasn't rained for a few days and the ground has dried out a bit, so dad got the big tractor and rolled all the lumps and bumps flat. That meant it didn't smell right so I had to put my stink back on it before any intruders tried to.

Eric: Stop making it smell like you or I will jump on you.

Flynn: Helppppppppppp!!! Mummmmmmmmmmmm!!!

Eric: Don't be a wimp and fight like a mancat.

Take that! A drop kick to the chin.

Flynn: You've made me mad now and I have floofed up to scare you.

And now I am going to bunny kick you. See how you like that!

That was fun and now it's time to relax again until the next time.

I have used the fourth photo for my Caturday Art.
I started with Red Blush at 50%, followed by Homer at 60%. The background was starting to look too dark so I added Beauty at 50% to lighten it a bit.
