Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week's flashback is from December 2011

Eric: Mum is always saying she has to either peer around or over us when she is using the computer.

She knows we have to help with visiting our friends blogs.

Oh okay, I'll move my paw for you. Is that better?

Flynn: I don't know what she means. Of course we don't get in the way.

I have used Flynn's photo for my Caturday Art this week.
I started with Beauty at 35%, then Tuscany at 60% followed by Sunshine at 25% to just lighten and brighten the picture slightly. I used a basic frame from Lunapic.


You can see more art with Athena the Cat Goddess.

I used one of the photos of Eric to make a puzzle. Click on the small picture to go to Jigsaw Planet to do it.

Summer said...

I love the effect today!

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

I love the way Flynn stands there so regally. No excuses. I love how the art effects bring out Flynn's green eyes. The result is nothing short of stunning!

Cleo said...

Another wonderful flashback. Yeah, Cleo often feels the need to sit in such a way as to block the computer screen. Did I say "often"?

Pam and Teddy said...

What wonderful computer-snoopervising photos from the past. We DO need to monitor our humans' use of the computer so the boys were just doing their job! Love the artsy touches too.........

Hugs, Teddy

Brian said...

Those are so wonderful and the one you picked for the art couldn't be better!

Colehaus Cats said...

MOL! Our Mom says the same thing, every time! Good to see you angel boys! Gorgeous art photo!

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

MOm says both Boo and I come for quick visits to help her on the computer but we don't stay long. We know your Mom would love to have you both sit on her computer again for all the tea in China. We love the artistic enhancement of Flynn's photo. Well done.

The boys were so helpful when it came to computer work!

The Church Cat Family said...

We love the Tuscany-ing!! Maybe I'll get there someday :) - Tom x

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

We dont block the monitor much. We are more "keyboard-walkers"! That causes all sorts of inneresting surprises.

Catio Tales said...

Funny that - Pekka is sprawled across the keyboard right now. The legacy of screenblockers lives on.

We thank you for rememebering our mighty Ruska on the blog; he was not so prolific with the mousies as Eric and Flynn but did his best!

Laila and Minchie said...

Yep, it's a cat "thing" to do. We want all of the attention! Great flashback, as always.

Caren Gittleman said...

Awww these are totally pawesome!! xoxo

The Island Cats said...

We do the same thing when the mom is on the computer. It drives her crazy! We like your art!

Cathy Keisha said...

Oh Flynn, you are so handsome. Occasionally I'll jump on the desk and then TW is afraid to type that I'll bite her hand. MOL!

Three Chatty Cats said...

Of course you were helping your mom visit blogs! I'm sure she appreciated it.

Sxanuxa Kitsinaka said...

I LOVE those photos of the boys helping you blog! Fabulishious!
Now I am off to do the Jigsaw puzzle!
Love Barb

Little Binky and Granny said...

You two are good helpers, Angels Eric and Flynn...MOL :D So cute <3 Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend :) <3

Kari said...

What wonderful companions! The boys were always so delightful and anything they did could and would bring a smile to our faces. Our mum feels that we kitties want the focused attention on us and not the computer screen.
( We like anything warm too and we especially like laying on the channel box on the tv which we seem to burn out with alarming regularity).
Flynn’s artwork has a soft vintage, very inviting feel to it. Perfect for an early autumn day.

Marie Symeou said...

Beautiful art!

Cats make the best companions. Athena normally sleeps on the bed beside me while I'm at my desk.

You sweet boys were clearly good helpers. I am off to do the puzzle :) XO

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Heh heh. I like to bother her when she is paying too much attention to the screen box. She ought to be playing with ME! But they are sooooooo slow to learn, aren't they? XOXO

Melissa, Mudpie and Angel Truffles (Mochas, Mysteries and Meows) said...

You were just being a good little helper and making sure your secretary wrote your blog properly!

Hairballsandhissyfits.com said...

such good photos! my cats always do whatever they can to block my computer screen!

Katie Isabella said...

OH BOYS! You're as helpful as Admiral was! Well, me too. I am VERY helpful. And I make announcements as I stride over the keyboard.

meowmeowmans said...

Great pawsture, Angel Flynn. What, Mum can't see through you? MOL!

Jean Neilson said...

Absolutely gorgeous artwork. What's your mom talking about...you're just helping. Mom's sometimes can be persnickity.

Marg said...

You boys were just keeping the Mom company and that is how it should have been. The artwork is just great. Have a good day.

Madi and Mom said...

Thank you for the lovely comment on our precious little Diva.
She gave Diva a new meaning to the name Diva. Each time I see a sun puddle or a box I'll smile. She gave me so much joy and I'm pretty sure she'd be royally UPSET if I quit blogging so I will be back ...and who knows an Angelic Diva will probably fly every so often too.
Hugs and Proud to have been Mom of Madi

Team Tabby said...

We always love seeing flashbacks of you two. We think you never got in the way on the computer in the photos. The last photo of Flynn is really cute. Thanks for sharing the beautiful art with us. Have a wonderful day.
