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.

Aged 12-18 months

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.

Sunday Selfie - Kozal.

I have missed doing the Sunday Selfies, but this week I have a guest kitty taking part in the hop.
Meet Kozal, a 16 year old ginger mancat.

"Kozal is an absolutely gorgeous older boy who sadly suffers from arthritis. He loves watching all the coming and goings in the centre from his pen, and loves it when he gets the opportunity to have a play and a cuddle with one of our staff or volunteers. His condition makes it tricky for him to be picked up, but his previous owners told us that he loved pottering in the garden so we are hoping to find him a forever home with some outdoor space to stretch his legs. He would really benefit from a quiet, calm environment with no other pets or children to spend his twilight years - and of course an adoring owner to pamper him!"

I don't know why he was surrendered but hope that someone will give him a loving home to live out his golden years.


You may remember that back in June I was making a donation in memory of Eric and Flynn.
Laila and Minchie were the winners of the donation which I was to make to the shelter of their choice.

Their mom, Peggy very kindly said said she would like me to donate it to a shelter of my choice.
I decided I would sponsor a cat rather than make a one off donation.
The local shelter don't have the sponsorship scheme up and running yet and seems no nearer to it at the moment. Time was going on so I have sponsored through one that is, and of course I chose a ginger boy.

The only difference this makes is that we can only visit the cats in our sponsor pen if we are in that area rather than being able to visit regularly.

When the local sponsorship is eventually available I will be able to change if I want to.

Hopefully Kozal will soon get his forever home, but if not I hope he or his pen companions will have some more selfies to share in the future.
