A New Snapshot of Life

New.

I’m excited cos this is a new year and I’m participating in a brand new photo hunt called 52 Snapshots of Life!  This one is hosted by The Lazy Pit Bull and the themes—or challenges as I like to call them—might not be as stupid trying as the one at the WhistleStop Cafe. In fact, they might come over to say hello! They have a real live linky tool too. That said I may at times go back and revisit the old PhotoHunt. I like being unpredictable. Click on the image below to see the other participants.


This week’s challenge is NEW and I couldn’t decide which of my new toys to feature. I finally settled on the same feather toy I featured from my Secret Paws package. TW got some good shots where I’m in focus—big surprise there. No surprise though that I bit her shortly after this pic was snapped. Guess you can say I’m a pit bull of a cat!

It’s Caturday and that means I’m also participating in Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not just for cats. Anyone with (or without) a talent can participate. Click the link to see the other bloggers taking part. It’s a good time for all.


I wanted to show my art smaller but like all good art, it lost that certain something. Below is the original out of focus foto. Back in 2010 I added some pebbly PhotoShop filter but for this blog hop I decided to get more ambitious and do more. I added some color noise and even though I’m personally against frames I did add a mosaic frame that sorta kinda matched. What do you think?


Gotta wish my BFGF Savannah Paw Tracks and her sidekick The Kid Sage both a Happy Gotcha Day. I sent them over a cake with layers of tuna and salmon to help them celebrate.

  13. I thought you looked like you were concentrating on TW's fingers more than the new toy. Good job on the bitey. I bit my mum a good one tonight too when she gave me my pill.

  21. Awesome feather! Lucky girl. Leo said he'd gladly come over and play feathers with you, if you want? I think he blushed then..

  22. You look a bit smug in that photo, CK. :) We like it with color noise. Very unusual.

  23. Happy New Year, my darling! We love ALL your pictures today!

    However, I must take issue with your assumptions about my sleeping through the New Year! I was up and about through most of the Human's New Year's Eve pawty, and by 12:30ish only about 4 people were left so I came and played my heart out with them--I played wand toys, and brushies and all kinds of stuff, and THEN I stayed up till about 4 a.m. with the Human while she finished straightening up and doing the dishes, so I *earned* my nappy on New Year's Day!

  24. Both are great pics!

  27. Oh that is a fun new toy and some fun artsy shots! I always love to see feather toys at other cats houses (we discourage playing with feathers here for obvious reasons.)
