Green Grow the Rushes

Green eyes

What does the title to this post mean? Don’t ax me. Ax TW. I like to use song titles as my post titles especially on Caturday and this is a song by TW's favorite band, R.E.M., who also have an album titled Green. Thank Ceiling Cat I didn’t have to pose with it. Someone would have gotten bitten!

Why am I boring you like this? Green is the theme of week 12 of the 52 Snapshots of Life challenge hosted by The Lazy Pit Bull. Green is TW’s fave color. Some of my favorite toys are green also. This might be because green is a color cats can distinguish. We tend to see pinks and reds as shades of green too.


Here is my favorite green felt rattle ball after TW stepped on it. Believe it or not, it pretty much bounces back to it’s original shape after a few hours. She was gonna photograph the ball by itself but I came running over cos I thought we were gonna play.

Cleanup in aisle 2!

I even have a green litter box and look at the mess that some human made scooping it. Everything is green around here although TW says there’s not enough green papers in her wallet.

Today is Caturday so I’m doing a fast change into my artist smock to participate in Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. It takes a blurry shot to make some stunning art and that’s what we did. A couple of filters, a PS action and a little tinting sets the stage for this masterpiece. What’s the verdict? Am I stunning in green?

Looks like you did both the 52 Snapshots and the cat art hop real proud, CK! We find that green ball FASCINATING! Stunning eyes, too. Simply stunning!

My human's favorite color is purple, but I lean towards pink - so most things around here are either purple or pink. If anything green shows up, it gets put in the bank!

We will join you with some green in our park. Love your arty portrait CK. Have a super Saturday.
Best wishes Molly.

You know what CK? I LOVE seeing you..that view of your lush little feline body there waiting on the litterbox. It captures your form better than others I have seen and now, you remind me of me. I think we are about the same size maybe.
Snow for you...everlasting rain and clouds for me. Let's go to AZ and live, you and me.

That is very interesting about cats being able to see green and red and pink being shades of green. We learned something new today! Thanks CK.

Of COURSE you're stunning in green, CK. You're stunning in any color, actually. :)

That is some interesting stuff about green being one of the colors cats are able to distinguish. Now we know!

My darling, you are stunning in EVERY color . . . but your green eyes are mesmerizing. I am under your spell 100%. I was all blushy that you found my windowsill picture fetching, my sweet. XOXOXOX

Love the green eyes. I didn't know cats saw pink and red as green. So interesting.

Once again I am glad I am so behind on my hopping because Amelia would be IMPOSSIBLE about me neglecting her gorgeous green eyes during the weeks theme. Now it's long over so she can't be mad, right?
