It’s Spa Day — Our Special Grooming Day

Spa Day - Our Special Grooming Day

Spa Day -- Our Special Grooming Day - cat being brushed and freshly trimmed nailsToday is spa day. It’s our special grooming day and mom tries to schedule one every week. We all get a thorough brushing and our nails trimmed. Thank catness baths aren’t included! That reminds me, mom read recently that baths are not necessarily a bad thing for cats. I hope she’s not thinking that means me. I’m an indoor cat and do a fine job of bathing myself. Sometimes I wish she wouldn’t do so much research.

I really enjoy the brushing half of our grooming routine. I love being brushed but I’d just as soon mom leave the nails alone. I just get them nice and sharp and she chops them off. … Continue reading

Easter Selfies and Art

Three kitties on the couch

Hi friends and furiends! I’m so glad to be here today. It’s been really quiet around here for us kitties. Mom has been so busy that I haven’t been on any adventures and she hasn’t even spent much time playing with us. Don’t feel sorry for us, though. We’ve still been getting lots of loving and have had plenty of time to do our favorite thing — snooze, as evidenced by the following photo.

Regarding My Absence

Pensive Christy -- thinking about what has been going on during my absence

Good morning my dear friends and furiends! I haven’t been around much lately and I feel like a terrible furiend, but my typist has been very busy. She even told me she has had to rethink things about my blog. You see, when we started this blog, mom was recovering from a serious illness and needed something to lighten things up. After we moved here and she started feeling better, she knew it was time to start thinking about making some money to supplement her retirement income. She learned about monetizing a blog and we tried to do that with mine but it just isn’t growing very much and I don’t have enough readers to make it happen. I have a lot of followers on social media but most of them just don’t visit my blog.

This Sunday Selfies sneak peek (on Monday this week) gives you a glimpse of what is to come tomorrow.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow and see what I was doing when I took my selfies.

I hope you had a super weekend.

Caturday Art: Taking It Easy

Mom has been really busy and not feeling up to par so I decided to let her off easy for today’s Caturday Art. She created some things a while back when she was experimenting with an app. These experiments never were published so I suggested she use them.

Valentine Selfies

Mom did a Valentine’s Day card yesterday for Caturday Art but I wanted to share it with you again today since today is actually Valentine’s Day.

Since today is Selfie Sunday AND Valentine’s Day, we all took some special Valentine selfies for you. We hope you like them.

Two Cats on Marbled Glass Inspired by Valentine’s Day

Two cats on marbled glass digital art

For this week’s Caturday Art, mom had an idea for a Valentine’s Day card and wanted to learn how to use the custom shape tool in Photoshop to do it. Photoshop Elements, which is on her sick computer and no longer works, has a cut out tool that makes what she wanted to do pretty easy. It seems, though, that Adobe thinks if you use regular Photoshop, doing the same job needs to be more complicated.

So, she hopped on Mr. Google to find a tutorial. Of course, like most things, once you know how to do it, it is quite easy.

While she was tinkering with her idea for the Valentine’s Day card, she wanted to see what she could do with the shape and came up with this.
