Everyone Knows It's Windy—Autumn Art

Help! Help! Hey-yelp! I wanted to show my latest Autumn painting outside but I have to hold on tight or the wind is liable to blow me away. It must be a hunnert miles per hour. My beret is gone and my sunglasses are buried in the leaves. I hope they don't blow away too. It's almost dinner time but I'm afraid to let go.

Keep Calm and Bite Someone

The title of this post is my mantra. I chant it all the time. This week I'm ready to bite Feedburner. It seems they are not delivering my posts to everyone on my mailing list. I wonder if that's why only like !% of those subscribed actually click to go to the post. If you're subscribed and aren't getting my updates, please let me know in the comments. Dunno what I can do about it but I'd like to know if it's more than one or two people. All I can suggest is unsubscribe and then resubscribe. Definitely resubscribe or I may have to bite someone. I'm totally frenzied so let's view some fotos.

100 Words on Wednesday—Stalking My Prey

In case TW hasn't noticed—I'm a cat. A cat has impeccable hunting skills. Cats in the wild have no need to constantly hone these skills. Indoor cats do. I'm an indoor cat and I could hone my hunting skills with my toys. But that wouldn't be any fun.

Stunning History 101—Columbus Day

Welcome to History 101. I'm your instructor, Ms Cathy Keisha. My last foray into teaching occurred quite a while ago when I told you the history of the Hamilton-Burr duel. Might I add it was waaaaaayyy before the hit Broadway musical. I was the first to mention that they were bruvvers. Now I aim to set the records straight on this fake holiday we call Columbus Day.

Swimming With the Fishies

OMC! My studio got swallowed up by the fish tank! Looka! Everything! My new painting, my paint and even my favorite beret are in there. How did this happen? I have a theory if you read the secret message. Should I dive in to try to rescue them? I dunno. I hate water but there might not be any other choice. *turns* Yo! I didn't see you guys. Be careful you don't fall into the aquarium too.

Ghosts, Goblins and Vampires, Oh My

The first Friday of October—or Tock-tober or Rocktober—if you prefer. We got October covered. TW already got a shot so she won't fly or something by her doctor who also sucked lots of her blood too. We have the whole vampire/Halloween thing going on. HAH! We got a harvest full of features and then I'll answer the fill-in question which are all about what's happening this month. Does that sound like a plan. Let's do it!

From Pop's Bed, CK Shares Her Opinions

Everything happens on Pop's bed especially when he's not around. I do most of my foto shoots there because his room has the only good natural lighting in the condo. Yesterday's shoot was done on Pop's bed. She took like 40 fotos and used two and I didn't even get treats until much, much later. Anyhoo, I got lots to tell you today as we feature some flashback fotos and I provide some insightful fill-in answers.

So Whadda Ya Think?

TW says that not only am I the most stunning cat she's ever had but I'm the funniest. I take exception to that. I dunno why she laughs when we play. I think maybe she's one fry short of a happy meal. Whoa, now I'm hungry. I'm gonna ax your opinion cos I trust you.

What Not to Do When You Find a Lost Cat

Two weeks ago, as TW was heading home from shopping, she spied what looked like a cat "turkeyed" on the sidewalk near a fence. What a strange sight! Cats don't usually sit out in the open especially not a block from an elementary school. As TW approached, the cat got up, walked up to her and rubbed against her legs. He was smallish in stature and painfully thin and malnurished. TW thought, well, this isn't a feral cat but it has no collar ergo someone must have dumped him from a car.

She's a Rainbow

She comes in colors everywhere / She's bald with hair / She's a rainbow!! No, I didn't just hit a sour note and those are the real words. I could be singing or I could be yawning. I'm closing up my art show for the night. The lights are all out except I have my works of art backlit. It helps bring out the already vivid colors.

Friday Flashbacks & Fill-Ins are in the Bag

It's Friday again. You'd think I'd be happy but do I look happy to you? It's been a long week at the condo. The other day they shut our water off an hour before they promised they would so TW couldn't fill any containers or even wash her face. It's been showery and downcast all week cos of José. The Red Sox refuse to lose and that doesn't make the peeps happy. Oh, and this week's fill-ins are kinda hard and require too much thought for this little kitteh. In those fill-ins, I'll hint about the other thing that's been taking much of TW's time away from ME. Fasten your seat belts cos we're starting the show.

TW Has a Senile Moment

TW pulled a good one last week. The temperature was going up into the low '80s and she had to close the windows cos the Mexicans were pawtying instead of working on the building next door. She turned the thermostat on. I couldn't wait to feel the a/c on my furs.

TW Has a Senile Moment

She wasn't feeling all that well and, of course, it was all The Cat's fault for keeping her awake all night. She thought she was feeling hot because of how lousy she felt or maybe she was getting some late hot flashes.

Remember Me Thursday—Cat Lives Matter

Today I'd like to write to remind you of a very important date. As a former street and shelter cat, I'd like to get as many furrends as I can involved with this great cause. September 28 aka Remember Me Thursday® will be here before you know it.

Pop Art Princess

I have to keep my voice low cos I'm posting from the Hoity Toity Museum where I've hung my art. I want to thank you all for the blogoversary wishes yesterday. It means a lot to me. I've hung my art in this museum but I don't think they appreciate it. Could it be cos I hung it over one of their "art" pieces? They've got all these "famous" people hanging on the walls—not the people but painting with the people's faces on them. I dunno who Frida is but I'm photobombing her. My image is prolly the most famous one hanging there and they should be thanking me.

Flashback Friday on My Blogoversary

Somehow It just seems right to have a Flashback Friday Foto Frenzy with Friendly Fill-Ins today. Try saying that fast a few times. On September 15, 2009, a new cat blog was born called The World's Most Stunning Cat. We've shortened the name of the blog even though I'm still the world's most stunning cat. No big pawty for number eight but it's worth mentioning. I'm not going to get into how and why this blog started since I recently did that. This is my 1,410th post and I thank you for the 33,492 comments we've received from our readers. I dunno how much longer we will continue but I hope you'll stay along on the journey. Now it's business as usual.

Wiseass Wondering on Wednesday

My readers have probably guessed by now that I am smarter than the average cat. Still there are some things that baffle me. Most center on TW since I spend the most time with her and she's—how do I say this politely—kinda odd. That wasn't polite but it's to the point. I could have said eccentric.

A Time for Reflection—September 11, 2001

Every September 11 since I started blogging I’ve rerun this piece Pop wrote because, thankfully, I have new readers who may not have read it. Although over a decade and a half have past since these terrorist attacks, both Pop and TW can recall the events of that terrifying day as if it was yesterday. Both worked in New York City at the time. It's a long post and I thank anyone who reads it.

A Time for Reflection—September 11, 2001

With all the natural disasters—floods, Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, fires in the west, earthquake in Mexico—it's easy to forget that this is the anniversary of an unnatural disaster. An act of war. Planes struck both towers of the World Trade Center in NYC, the Pentagon and one was downed in Shanksville, PA. Over 3000 people were killed. Among them were innocent people at work doing their jobs and first responders from FDNY, NYPD and Port Authority cops. It's easy for those not in the tristate area to focus on what's going on now and consider the events of 9/11 old news.

It's not "old news" for those in 2017 still suffering life-threatening illnesses from breathing the air at Ground Zero or the children living in lower Manhattan who were exposed to chemicals released while the buildings burned. Those children are showing early signs of heart disease risk.

Everybuddy's An Art Critic

When I was blogging about May's BlogPaws' conference that I sent TW and Plush CK to, I mentioned how they did everything but attend seminars where she could acquire knowledge and learn stuff to make this blog better. One of those "fun" things she did was participate in the Paint and Sip sponsored by the Red Roof Inn. She signed up to just sip but in one of life's great tragedies ironies wound up painting and not sipping. She did have fun so I guess that's something.

Everybuddy's An Art Critic

She hated her painting and I don't blame her cos I hate it too. Recently I decided to take a closer look at this eye sore in our otherwise spotless—ha ha, did I just actually say that?—condo. Just pretend this is my studio but this definitely isn't my art.

Help the Pets in Houston and More

September is National Disaster Preparedness Month and it just so happens the residents of Texas, particularly Houston and surrounding areas, are in the midst of the worst hurricane perhaps ever. Harvey has dumped more than 50 inches of rain in some parts of Texas and I hope the residents had a disaster preparedness plan that included their cats and other anipals. I've seen disturbing pics on FB of people's pets being turned away at shelters. If you'd like to help, Austin Pets Alive! needs fosters and donations cos they've taken many shelter animals from the affected areas, saving hundreds of precious lives. Another fun way to help is through the Auction for Austin Pets Alive organized by the wonderful Marjorie at the Dash Kitten blog. You can donate items at the auction's Facebook event page!

What You Should Know When Your Cat Gets Hiccups

Raise your hand if your cat has ever had hiccups. This is one topic we've never seen discussed on blogs or the Facebook cat communities I belong to. I had a case last night. *HIC* TW gave me a late night snack *HIC* and I jumped on Pop's bed. *HIC* It's not like *HIC* I've never had them before but this case just *HIC* lasted a few hics longer and TW hadn't seen me have them in awhile.

She went right to Mr. Google to see if it's normal for cats to get the hiccups. Here's what she found.

We Never Forget Good Furrends—Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day 2017

On this day, August 28, 2017, we honor those who ran off to the Rainbow Bridge as it's Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. Those cats who came before us will always live on in our humans' hearts. I had planned a post talking about the Honor Flags. I gave TW strict instructions where I wanted this post to go but TW decided to hijack my blog. Can you believe it?

We Never Forget Good Furrends—Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day 2017

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day was founded in 2015 by Deborah Barnes, award-winning author and blogger of Zee & Zoey’s Cat Chronicles in tribute to her Ragdoll cat, Mr. Jazz, who she had to say goodbye to on August 28, 2013. She shared the journey of letting him go in her critically acclaimed book, Purr Prints of the Heart – A Cat’s Tale of Life, Death, and Beyond and decided to create the day in his honor as a way for others across the world to share memories of their own pets they had loved and lost.

Painting Keisha on the Wall

It's 10:30 Friday night and TW is telling me she doesn't have time to type up a Caturday art post. That is unacceptable. She also says she doesn't want to open Photoshop to do the usual opening gallery show. That is also unacceptable.

Painting Keisha on the Wall

It's now 2 pm Caturday and TW finally has inspiration in the form of teeth in her leg. Last night I was working under the cover of darkness to get this post and the art done. I'm painting on bricks cos I used an effect called bricks, which is not to be confused with brickface like they're gonna use to renovate our condo community.

Doing a Friday Balancing Act

Whoa! This practically never happens! Out of the 56 numbers the Rafflecopter had to choose from for this Foto Frenzy, it chose two that were selected just last week! How lucky can some cats get?

TW tends to stay up later than she should each night. Most nights I keep her company and I get rewarded with a midnight—or later—snack. When I don't eat my gut rot, TW gives me a little something to make sure I've had enough liquids and to keep me away from the kibble bowl.

Clear the Shelters Day Art

Today is Clear the Shelters Day and you know I'm all about helping cats find their forever homes and castles. I notice there are a lot of animals available at my old alma mater that need homes. I was kinda saddened to see Helen, a cat I shared on Facebook last year is still available for adoption. I invited her over to innerduce this week's art. Helen might be a little shortsighted but she can still appreciate great art. I wanted to show her a painting I made of her.

No Shelter From the Storm

No Shelter From the Storm

Last Wednesday we had terrible thunderstorms. TW and Pop deserted me and left me to fend for myself. Pop goes to work everyday but I always have TW around. She goes out and does chores but she's never out more than an hour or two and she never goes out during a storm. Not only did she leave, but when she left it was thundering. She left me all alone during the thunderstorm and it was a bad one. I thought the world was going to end but I didn't think she would ever return. Pray tell, what could be so important that she had to leave me while it was storming?

Hello Dali #CaturdayArt

One of TW's favorite artists is Salvador Dali. For today's Caturday Art, I'm saluting him by using the Dali effect on my paintings. The effect is a fail cos it doesn't resemble any of the Dali works I've ever seen. Granted, TW hasn't been to MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) in quite awhile but she doesn't remember his work using these brushstrokes or colors. Dali or not—enjoy anyway cos it is what it is.

Do you drink enough water? TW certainly doesn't. Apparently, last month was Pet Hydration Month so every pet and their uncle was giving away one fountain or another. I shouldn't talk since I won one of them but I was having flashbacks reading them all. And speaking of flashbacks, let's get to our regularly scheduled program.

Whenever they come home from shopping, I always ax if they brought me anything. They came home from shopping and wait till you see what TW proudly plopped in front of me! Please don't tell me we're getting a woofie! Oh no!

A Touching Moment in Art

A Touching Moment in Art

Welcome, kitties, to my studio. Disregard the wine bottle. How did that get in here? It's some fine French CK Nip Chat-donay left over from my 6th blogoversary many years ago. Today I'm going to show you the anatomy of an artwork. I had something different planned but TW found some "lost" pics of ME on a thumb drive. I dunno how they failed to make the cut. I thought ALL my pics were on the hard drive here slowing down the computer. You take that back, Woman! You're slowing down the computer! Sorry, folks.

Anyway, some of the pics like the one you'll see today were blurry and out of focus, while others were fine and focused.

How the Venta Airwasher Helps CK Breathe Easier This Summer #sponsored

Hi kitties! Glad you could join me. Today I wanted to explain a little bit about how the summer season affect humans and cats with asthma. As you know, I was diagnosed with asthma about four years ago. Did you know TW has asthma and seasonal allergies also?

How the Venta Airwasher Helps CK Breathe Easier This Summer #sponsored

Last summer was the worst yet. My asthma kept attacking me and I even made an unscheduled trip to the vet. TW was determined this summer would be easier on both of us which is why she did her due diligence on the best humidifier/air cleaner to help with the dryness and air quality in our condo. This summer, I have a Venta® Airwasher to help with dry, unhealthy air and low humidity. It helps both myself and TW breathe easier, which makes us happier.
