Two Posts in One

The first post has to do with this week’s PhotoHunt theme: vast. When a crossword puzzle’s clue is “vast expanse,” the word they’re usually looking for is ocean. When I hear the phrase vast expanse, I think of the Cat Who Came Before Me, Nicky. His expanse—and his girth too—were vast.


At 22 1/2 lbs, he was so vast, the photo couldn't hold his entire stomach.

I’m also participating in the Caturday Art Blog Hop over at Athena, Cat Goddess. It’s a new way to have fun and showcase our creativity. Believe me, the creativity is all mine. TW is lacking in that department. She was getting seconds of the ugly gene and forgot about the creativity gene.

I call this one “I Am the Cosmos."

Nicky was a big boy! (my mom's Moose outweighs him by only half a pound!) but he was adorable!
CK, you're stunning as the cosmos!

I didn't know Nicky was such a big boy! All my human's cats have been pretty small, but then, the only boycat she ever had was part Siamese and they generally run a little small.

Love the art effect - of course, CK, I know you're creative one in your family! Just like I am the brains in mine.

A big boy indeed and a handsome one too. Have a super Saturday.
Best wishes Molly

22 1/2 pounds - wow! My top weight was 18, but that was years and years ago.

You are indeed the Cosmos Keisha and very lovely too.

Yep, Nicky certainly was 'vast', however, judging by the photo, he seemed to carry it well! Very handsome.

Kitties Blue said...

C.K., your photo and that of our Lisbeth for this week's Art Hop are very similar. Wow, Nicky sure was a huge kitty. But he was also very handsome. We are having fun with the Caturday Art as it appears you are as well. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

The Island Cats said...

Nicky sure was a big boy, wasn't he?

And that's a cool picture of you, CK!

Vastly handsome, and picture purrfect!

Tamago said...

Nicky was very big and very handsome!!
I love your art image very much. You are stunning and creative!!

Clooney said...

Wow, Nicky was a big, handsome Mancat! Just LOVE your art creation CK, and the title of it! Have an awesome weekend!

Nicky was a pretty boy. I had a big, black cat Bart who weighed 22lbs. He wasn't fat - he was just BIG.

meowmeowmans said...

Whoa, Nicky WAS vast! That's about how much our Angel Sammy weighed when he first came to PAWS. He "only" weighed 19 and change when Mom and Dad adopted him. Through food management, we got down to a more healthy 15, eventually.

You ARE the Cosmos, CK!

I think Glogirly & Gloman need to work on their OWN vastness. ; ) heh, heh

We happen to think that you AND TW are very creative!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Wow! There was lots of Nicky to love, huh? The two Kitties Who Came Right Before Me (Mr. Teeth and Clarkie) were big bruisers too--like 18-19 lbs. at their max). I am kind of a little boy by comparison--maybe 9.5 - 10 lbs. or so. I was 8.5 before I gotted "tutored" but I've "filled out" since then.

I love your sparkly picture, darling--you *do* look like "Oh my God, it's full of stars" kitty ;-) XOXOXO

Katz Tales said...

Wow, Nicky is huge! All the more to love, right?

Katie Isabella said...

How I would have loved to hold Nicky, Mommy said. And CK, you look stunning...nothing but stunning as Cosmos.

Austin Towers said...

Nicky - the one who came before - was a true heavyweight for sure. But you ain't no lightweight either CK (intellectually speaking!) ;)

M Dawson said...

I think the portrait is very artistic CK! You have that sort of omnipotent look, you know....
