Flashback Friday in the Condo

Flashback Friday in the Condo

Who's ready for another Flashback Friday Foto Frenzy where I revisit some older fotographs that TW botched? They're unPhotoshopped except for the number and watermark and chosen by my readers. I could call this post "What Was TW Thinking?".

Almost Wordless Wednesday With Lots of Photos and Just Enough Words to Satisfy Mr. Google

National Selfie Day

Almost Wordless Wednesday

Since it's selfie day, I decided to show some of my selfies from the past so here goes. You might remember some of them but if you just started reading this blog, they're new to you.

How TW's Box Ruined My Love of Boxes

International Box Day


How TW's Box Ruined My Love of Boxes

International Box Day should be one of the happiest days of the year for cats. As a species, cats love boxes. I'm here to tell you TW ruined boxes for me. There. I said it. She forever ruined boxes for me. Big boxes … small boxes … high boxes … low boxes … all of them … ruined! I can never enjoy a box again and we currently have three nice-size ones in the condo right now.

More From the Pop Art Princess

More From the Pop Art Princess

My studio is all replastered and mostly ready to do business. It just needs to be, ahem, painted. Wonder who I can hire to do that. While they were working on it, I did some serious thinking about my art after seeing the works of Rusty Balls and Jasper Katz. I decided this pop art stuff looks easy so I tried my paw at it. How hard could it be to a talent such as myself? All I need is a lot of yellow paint and a stunning subject and I have both those things. It wasn't so easy after all but I think I got a few winners that should fetch a pretty penny when I auction them off.

Splish Splash I Was Taking a Bath

Splish Splash I Was Taking a Bath

Did you like my Wordless Wednesday? I'm so glad many of you got the irony and humor in that post that the post was wordless but the title certainly wasn't. We've sure got a sense of humor in La Condo Keisha. I thought today you'd like to see the rest of that photo shoot.

Life is Full of Expectation Hangovers

 Life is Full of Expectation Hangovers

Yo Kittehs! I dunno why it is. Life is full of disappointments. Sometimes things just don't turn out as planned. This post is a study in the expectation hangover, a phrase coined by writer and life coach Christine Hassler. Here's a prime example: we spend a week writing and researching a post, do two or three foto shoots to illustrate it and promote it more than normal and our views and comments are way down. Then we spend 20 minutes writing a post and use archive fotos and it's a big hit. This happened last week but I'll get over it. This is one of those 20 minute posts so enjoy it.

Two Pop Artists Interpret CK

Two Pop Artists Interpret CK

This week's art was NOT drawed by your's truly. While I'm waiting for the repairs on my studio, I commissioned two world-famous pop artists to do paintings in my image. These tall masterpieces did not come cheaply. I had to sell some of TW's bling—not to mention some of my Kittles—to afford them but afford them I did. It was hard parting with the treats but these painting are monstrous in size and so stunning.

CK is One Cool Kitteh

CK is One Cool Kitteh

Guess what? I've been neglecting the Happy Cat Happy You series or should I say TW has. They provide some quick tips for building a bond with your feline friend—or do they? These bonding tips are suggested by the humans at the Catnip Newsletter and compiled for Tufts Institute. I offer a cat's expert perspective which often differs from what a human thinks we like. This series is not sponsored by anyone except me.

Why Carrageenan is Bad For Your Cat #HealthyMeetsHappy #sponsored

Why Carrageenan is Bad For Your Cat  #HealthyMeetsHappy #sponsored

In the condo Healthy Meets Happy when it comes to feeding The Cat aka me. The peeps don't necessarily eat everything that's good for them and everyday I can find them sucking down all kinds of meds. Luckily for me, TW is more careful with my food and looks to feed me natural cat food. She knows to keep me happy, she needs to feed me wholesome foods without fillers or artificial color and flavors which will keep me healthy. A cat sitting at the a vet is not a happy cat. She reads up on cat nutrition so when she reads cat food labels, she knows what ingredients to avoid.

TW is Goofing Off Again

TW is Goofing Off Again

TW has been goofing off all weekend, which leaves me no choice but to post a Foto Frenzy today. She's never home and when she is, she spends all her time reading Facebook like it's the Good Book. This blog should be her number one priority! Enough intro: Let's get to the dirty deed done dirt cheap.

Emotional About Emoji Art

Emotional About Emoji Art

It's another Caturday. Whoop de doo! The peeps are staying home today cos they're going out with Uncle Vince tomorrow. I'll be in my office creating more art and shredding more under bed boxes. Heh. Look at the mess my studio is! I sublet to a couple of woofies for a month. Can you believe how they left it?? It isn't right. How the Hello Kitty did they put holes in the walls? I can tell you they ain't getting their security deposit back!

What's That Plush CK Up To?

What's That Plush CK Up To?

Last week I sent Plush CK to the BlogPaws Social Media Conference in Myrtle Beach as my stand-in. HHGutt had strict orders he was NOT to embarrass me in any way. I've already posted some of his antics as Plush CK and will be showing more today.

It was 49 Years, 364 Days Ago Today

It was 49 Years, 364 Days Ago Today

The peeps tell me that tomorrow will be the 50th anniversary of the American release of one of Pop's all-time favorite albums. He says we should celebrate the release of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band cos it set the standard for music up to that time. There had never been a rock record quite as ambitious as the Beatles' 1967 lp.

Supporting Our War Veterans

Supporting Our War Veterans

On this day, we honor the dead and pay tribute to those who have served and are serving in the U.S. armed forces. Whenever TW is in NYC and sees our uniformed men and women in the bus terminal, she thanks them and silently hopes that they never have to see actual military duty overseas.

Art to Honor Those Who Served

Art to Honor Those Who Served

Yo kittehs! Thanks for all the support and ideas how to get TW to break open the swag. It still hasn't worked. I may have to go on the attack and she knows what that means. She's showed me two big bags of kibble. I've been nibbling on the bags cos I have a feeling it's the closest I'll get to actually eating the food inside for awhile. TW rations kibble like it's made of gold, which I don't understand cos we get it gratis.

Today, though, is Caturday and that brings me to my art honoring those soldiers who keep us safe.

Swag Held Hostage, Day 4

Swag Held Hostage, Day 4

This photo is one of the last pics TW took before she went away. It was sunny that day and I'm actually feeling the sun on my furs. It's been raining since she got home. TW is still cranky and hung over tired from being away. She doesn't feel like shopping or blogging or … opening up the swag she brought back with her. Worse still, I got the same report from my furrend, Pumpkinpuddy, whose human spent a lot of time hanging with TW. Is this a conspiracy in the making?

TW got back from the BlogPaws social media conference Monday. She needed a cart to wheel everything upstairs although she's only unpacked her stuff. Figures, right? She said she had to wash her clothes. I'm still waiting to see what I got besides the can of food I've already sampled and liked. Her excuse was she needs to get a photograph of everything together. Like that's gonna happen.

Tale of the Turncoat

Tale of the Turncoat

This post originally ran August 27, 2010. I hope to return to posting new, inneresting posts later in the week, if TW comes home.

You are not going to believe what The Woman did today. She left early to have lunch with Aunt Pauline and then do some shopping. But I have connections. She cannot get away with anything without me finding out. Around 2:35, I get a call from my homeboy Jamal axing if TW is home.

Biding My Time Waiting For TW to Return

Biding My Time Waiting For TW to Return

I know we did a frenzy the other day. TW is still at Blogpaws hopefully looking for sponsors for this blog and bringing home plenty of swag for moi. This is the easiest and quickest kind of post to write and even this takes a couple of hours. Let's get on with the show.

The Most Embarrassing Foto Frenzy Yet

The Most Embarrassing Foto Frenzy Yet

When I first started posting Foto Frenzies, I promised that all fotos would be unedited and there were some potentially embarrassing ones. For those new to my Foto Frenzy feature, my readers pick a number at random and I match that number to one of our fotos. TW has a dumb system where all my fotos are numbered in chronological order, rather than categorized by what I'm doing in the fotos.

Stunning Straw Hat Model

Stunning Straw Hat Model

Today is National Straw Hat Day, which is the day where humans shed their woolly winter hats and don lighter straw hats. TW hasn't had a straw hat in ages but I rock the virtual straw hats. This Year's model is a variation of the "pink pussy hat." Let me model some of my other straw hats for you.

Art I Did Myselfie


Happy weekend to you. We're trying to write posts for the days TW will be gone so this will be a quickie—quick and pleasing. Aunt Pauline indicated she and cousin Nickolette will be very disappointed not to have new posts next week. We aim to please. First I took a photo and made a selfie and then I painted it myselfie.

The Final Insult: An Attack From Above

The Final Insult: An Attack From Above

Don't forget to read the hidden messages by hovering over the photos for the whole story.

La Condo Keisha is under attack from above. About a month ago, they started working on the roof of our condo building. There was noise but all in all, it could have been worse … until last Wednesday. I came home from the vet stressed beyond belief. I was just looking to eat, get my bearings and relax.

Foto Fails (Few Words Wednesday)

Foto Fails (Few Words Wednesday)

On Friday I'm going to go into details about what's been going on and what was the final insult after I got home from the vet. This lead foto was taken yesterday during the height of some ongoing action which will be explained. BTW, thanks to your comments, TW said they would call out for Chinese food tomorrow and I better get some. Never was a title as appropriate as this one.

Three Against One? The Cat Triumphs Against All Odds

Three Against One? The Cat Triumphs Against All Odds
Photo ©Pop

Dateline: last Wednesday. The cat ponders. "Hmmm, it's Wednesday and Pop isn't getting ready for work. I hope he isn't sick or hasn't gotten downsized. Maybe he's just taking some me-time otherwise known as PTO, unless 45 has signed an executive order doing away with paid time off. I'll just keep aware of my surroundings until I find out what's happening."

What is happening? Will it affect The Cat? Would there be a blog post if it didn't?

Foto Frenzy for Flynn

Foto Frenzy for Flynn

I don't think I hid the fact that I had special feelings for Flynn. He was a special mancat who had some comforting words and warm furs for me to cry on when Buzz when OTRB. Now all too soon Flynn joins him. I'm heartbroken and devastated. He had picked some foto frenzy numbers before he ran away to the Bridge. Today I'll show several of them in his memory. I hope at least his mum will enjoy them.

The Legend of the Bobble Hat

The Legend of the Bobble Hat

Stunning Keisha has agreed to be part of the "Wurld-Wide Tour of the Time-Travelling Bobble Hat." This was a complete surprise to us when the hat turned up in our mailbox. We'd thought about signing up for it since it is for charity and then never followed through. TW is like that.

Then the hat arrived in our mailbox. What to do?

Triple Dipping

Triple Dipping

TW and Pop were out tramping until all hours last night so The Cat has to suffer by not getting an art post up on time. then, to add insult to injury, TW suggests I use the May calendar she worked so hard—or hardly worked on—yesterday in Photoshop. Does she have the special pet holidays for May? No. Does she have a lead image? No. I suggested she best do one or the other so she picked the easy way out: the lead image. I showed her who was boss by insisting I be wearing a do-rag.

Foto and an Explosive Tale

Believe it or not, this post started as a Wordless Wednesday with a few words. I can't do wordless even when I try so let's skip that idea for the week. I'm doing a bit of foto frenzying since I have a backlog and they're an easy post to do in between the giveaway• and sponsored posts I've been doing lately. If you want wordless, you can glance at the foto and skip the riveting commentary.

I'm so glad Flynn close #1066 cos not all my readers know the story of the rooming house across from us. That would be the big yellow house in this foto from June 2010. Not long after my peeps moved into the condo, there was an incident. Let me set the scene as I heard it.

CK Celebrates The Year of the Cat With Wellness® Complete Health™ #HealthyMeetsHappy #ad

CK Celebrates The Year of the Cat With Wellness® Complete Health™ #HealthyMeetsHappy #ad

The day started as any other. TW fed me a wholesome breakfast and then went to the computer. Instead of opening The Cat's blog or email, she started looking at NJT bus schedules. It was then I knew I was in for an adventure. I axed where we were going and if I could drive but she insisted we take the bus after all Earth Day was coming up. Destination: PetSmart! We were going to buy cat food!

This little ghetto kitteh is proud that my blog is one of the 10 blogs participating in the Spring Fling Pet Blogger Giveaway! I love my readers and thought this would be a nice way to give back and "pay it forward" to thank you for your support. I had to rent space on a billboard to announce it.

What Eggactly Are We Blogging About?

Did you miss me? I've been on hiatus cos TW is very sickly. We're gonna try to keep a schedule again but TW's head is foggier than usual and it's hard for her to concentrate on my dictation. She has been taking new photos of me though. From the title of this post, you can see she's just doing her thing like this isn't my blog.

As you already know, TW and Pop love collecting holiday decorations and cluttering all my jumping places up with them. Easter is no eggception.

There were a lot of clever #ChewyInfluencer posts last month which makes winning even more special.

Wordless Wednesday—CK style

Wordless Wednesday—CK style

Seems my FF has morphed into a not-quite WW but I'm up for the challenge. I have enough foto numbers to last until the end of the year, thanks to my readers. You're the best. If you know my style, you know that we pride ourselves on great images—at least as great as the combination of TW's old, shaky hands and her cheapo cameras can produce. We let our fur down once a week during the Foto Frenzy and post random, uncropped and unedited fotos. It is what it is—a fun feature many enjoy—so let's begin. If it's too long, just skip the intro.

Stunning April Downloadable Calendar

Stunning April Downloadable Calendar

Now that March is "in the bag" as they say, it's time to turn the calendar page. April is supposed to be a time of rebirth although you wouldn't know it around the condo. First we had a leak under the kitchen sink which turned out to be a faucet that had outlived its usefulness. (This one can't be blamed on me!) Now the clothes dryer has decided to misbehave. The control panel appears to be toast. When the load finishes, the machine cycles back on all by itself. TW has to hit cancel about 20 times to stop it from cycling back on. Most of the time only half of the wash is dried too. KA-CHING! As if they need the expense.

Does Your Cat Crave a Taste of the Wild? #ChewyInfluencer

Hello again! That's how I announce myself to TW when I jump on the cat tree near the computer desk while she is trying to work. I'm back with another exciting cat food review for Chewy.com. For this one, they axed if I wanted to do my report from high atop the Grand Canyon looking down at the river but that sounded a bit too adventurous to this ghetto kitteh. I think I'll lay right in my "mauve thing" and dictate to TW. Are your fingers ready, Woman?

Wordless Wednesday CK Style

Wordless Wednesday CK Style

Since the beginning of time, I've been a rebel. One of the ways I rebel with this blog is I don't do wordless and I don't do Wordless Wednesday. Oh, I'll link up to the blog hop but it never, ever is wordless. I need to be heard loud and clear and if the WW people don't like it, they can go elsewhere but they already do that.

Today bloggers are all worried about their SEO and PUD and Bast knows what else and to go wordless would ruin everything they've worked for all year. The new Wordless Wednesday is a few pics with a few words about the pics. I could do that if you pretend this long intro didn't exist.

I teased you awhile back about the cheapo $6 litter box TW bought me a month or so ago. Let me tell you a little history before I tell you what a bust that box was. When I first moved here, I had a hand-me-down covered box. I didn't complain. Hard as it is to believe now, I was a nobody back then.
