Snuggly Wuggly Isn’t Me


No one on God’s green Earth has ever excused me of being cuddly or Snuggly. I don’t do cuddly or Snuggly so this week’s 52 Snapshots of Life challenge was indeed challenging. TW suggested I use a pic of one of the Cats Who Came Before Me. You know that ain't gonna happen. Every time I post about one of them losers, my blog numbers and comments are in the toilet. I will face this challenge head on!

I know I’ve been doing a lot of sleeping on this blog lately but—hey—we’re in the midst of a heat wave. Plus it’s the only way I can show the theme cos the only thing I knead is my cat bed. The one above was the original bed I had and it's still my favorite.  I’d knead it and then I’d settle in all Snuggly. The peeps threw it out just cos it was old and the padding was broken. I knead my new bed too but it’s larger so I can’t get as Snuggly in it.


I can also get Snuggly on Pop’s sheets and clothes. They’re so nice and warm and they have Pop’s smells on them. [Ed note: is that a good thing?] Woman, Close your trap and type what I tell you.

Thanks to Christina and The Lazy Pit Bull for hosting the 52 Snapshots of Life photo challenge this week and every week throughout 2015. For those who would like to participate, next week’s theme is Nature.

It’s now time for me to show you some good art. About two weeks ago—before we even saw this theme—we arted this picture where I may or may not be getting all Snuggly with HHGutt. Trust me, I’m not Snuggly even with the stuffies, especially not HHGutt; but TW likes to pretend I am. She took this blurry foto at night sans flash and first we created an ultra sharp image using a PhotoShop paint action.


Then we decided to make our painting into a sketch which I like much better. OK, I’ll admit it. I drawed that in pencil and charcoal. I may have gone too heavy on the whiskers over my eyes but I’m not about to do it over. I am one talented kitteh, aren’t I?


Many thanks to Athena and Marie for hosting the Caturday Art Blog Hop every week. Stop by the see some creative anipals strutting their newest art images.

Now that you’ve seen my attempts at cuddling, who are you gonna get Snuggly with this weekend?

I will tell you a secret, CK - although I am a very affectionate kitty, I am not particularly cuddly! I like to do that on my own time, and when I want to - which never seems to be at the same time my human goes grabbing for me, MOL!

I's gonna snuggle wif Crockett - but we always does it.

Tamago said...

I bet your Pop's sheets and clothes, with his smell on, are the best spot to get snuggly :-)
The sketch looks very gentle and beautiful. Great art work, CK!

The Swiss Cats said...

Great sketch, we love the effect ! Pixie is less snuggly than me even if she's affectionate and purrs when she's petted. Purrs, Zorro

Brian said...

That sketch is terrific CK and you don't have to be snuggly unless the mood strikes you!

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

I quite like snuggling, myself, BUT... But that Anderson is a snuggly pro. Basically, he's a suck up with the peeps. MOUSES!

Purrs,
Seville

Your sketch looks great CK. I am not much of a snuggler either, but I can always make an exception ;)

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

I'm gonna snuggle with Mommy. I do it every day. But never Lexy.

Christy Paws said...

We all LOVE to snuggle with mom. I highly recommend it, CK, but you seem a little set in your ways. I love your sketch.

The Island Cats said...

CK, snuggling isn't all it's cracked up to be. I'm a very friendly cat, I love to give a good headbutt, but I'm not much of a snuggler. Hard to believe, right? ~Wally

Bed snuggles count!

Annie Bear said...

Hi! I'm not snuggly either except I have been enjoying tummy rubs and pets more lately. You look lovely and quite comfy in that top pic.

You know, for our first art picture, the lady wanted to a pencil sketch like yours but couldn't quite make it look good. We like yours a lot!

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

You really should give snuggling your humans a try...you might like it!

The Indulged Furries said...

I'm not as snuggly as my mom wishes me to be, but she'll get over it.

Peaches and Paprika said...

We're glad to be a late poster, if only to see all these funny comments about snuggling! Everyone has their own opinion about it! As for us, we believe snuggling is a religion but we believe in "free choice" - i.e., we get to snuggle when WE want to....irrespective of human's wishes. But hey it all works out in the end...

Dash Kitten said...

You are a snuggler in disguise CK - definitely!!!

Ann Staub said...

You are just a lone snuggler CK. You look plenty snuggly to me ;) Callie doesn't like to snuggle with peeps either. And wow - I didn't know you were so talented with charcoal! MOL
