A Bird in the Paw is Worth Two …

Another week has gone by. We’re another week older and that means there’s a new PhotoHunt theme and a new Caturday Art Blog Hop over at Athena’s place. Once again, I’m up to both challenges. Our theme is caca dropping Bird.


We don’t get many birds around the big city but we do have these rats with wings called pigeons. They hang on the roof of the deserted factory next door and hold their bird meetings. Sometimes, they mock me. TW took this photo a few years ago and saved it for a rainy day. Today is that rainy day.


I turned it into my fantasy. I’m on the roof and those smart-a$$ birds aren’t mocking me now. Notice how I’m licking my lips. After I finish those three, I’ll head over to that lone guy. If he thinks I don’t see him, he’s got another think coming.

For the art hop, I’ve taken the lead photo and first added an action called—appropriately enough—Earlybird. Heh-heh! Then I put a sponge filter over that so it looks like a painting.

I see those flying rats here too, and they poop on dad's log pile. Your art picture is beautiful.

Mariodacat said...

Love your art work CK. You are really getting good at that stuff. We don't have pigeons, but we have Morning Doves. The only thing separating me from a good meal is a piece of thick glass!

Melissa and Truffles (Mochas, Mysteries and Meows) said...

You are extremely creative!

The Island Cats said...

Yep, the mom calls pigeons "rats with wings" too. They're almost as bad as seagulls.

We like your art this week, CK. Very cool!

Prudence said...

OOoooh! Rats with wings, BOL! I dream of them nicely done on the grill, but mom says no! Love the art today. Mom's gonna start playing w/Photoshop tonight I hope!

Christie laverie said...

Ooh! Rats with wings! We don't see many of those out where we live with that coloring, but they are super fun to chase. We mostly get the rats with the red belly and some brown rats with wings.
Have a pawsome day!

Those pigeons look pretty tasty (and filling!), CK! Are you going to be able to eat them all?

LOVE your artwork!

Layla Morgan Wilde ( Cat Wisdom 101) said...

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Very spring-ish photo CK. We're also heard of pigeons being called rats with wings. I like birds but pigeons (and blackbirds) NOT SO MUCH!

Hugs, Sammy

Jobi Harris said...

Purrfect Make My Day photo! and of course your artwork continues to be excellent.

EastCoastLife said...

It must be a challenge trying to catch "rats with wings". :P

Katie Isabella said...

Hi Stunning girl! My mom buys me Cat Attract and the other one by the same maker. Perfect Cat I think it is. I loves them both.

xxoox

Kjelle Bus said...

We call pigeons flying rats here in Sweden :)

My favourite photo is the 1.st one , it looks like a X-mas card.

XOXO

Caren Gittleman said...

love what you did with the photo, you did a great job!

Willow said...

CK you really told those pigeons they really are asking for it by taunting from up on the roof.

Jans Funny Farm said...

We haven't seen a robin yet this year. Wonder why? Maybe they're at a convention with your pigeons.

Studio Kaufmann said...

What a great pic! Would look totally fab as next years Christmas card. I'm a pet portrait artist and Keisha's fan. What a cool kitty.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

It was furry nice of you to let some other kitty win tonight, my darling! The Human was surprised it got guessed so fast, but *I* know kitties are smart. XOXOXOXO I'm glad you liked my Moody Monday photo-I almost used "Monday, Monday" as the contest song, but toooooo easy.

Kitties Blue said...

C.K, that is a great arty CK and bird "painting." It is always nice to have a fantasy like catching and eating the "stoopid" pigeons. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
