Funtastic Fall Foto Frenzy


It’s Friday again but I hope you guys aren’t getting Foto Frenzy-ed out. My views and comments have been down the past couple of weeks so I’m hoping this isn’t a trend. This is my audience participation feature where you decide what you want to see.

I try never to post repeats on Foto Frenzy but I’m going to make an exception since many of you want to see foto #1. Canadian Cat Shoko axed to see it so here it is. Even though I moved here on January 29, 2006, foto #1 somehow wasn't taken (or developed) until June 24, 2007. How can that be? TW has a lot of ‘splaining to do. It was originally taken on her analog camera. If it looks familiar, it's the image in the Halloween header Glogirly designed for me that you’ll see above. Weird, how these things happen. I was about seven months and this is about as close to a kitten picture of me as we have.


#1273, as chosen by the Trout Towne Tabbies, is a previously unpublished foto of me posing with our Peace Box. You might have heard me talk about the Priority Box Art Project and artist Franck de Las Mercedes, who used to live in our hood until his house and studio burned to the ground. Sadly, I believe the project will end in 2016 after 10 incredible years and the artist will no longer be painting them or sending them out for free. This incredible little box contains peace and love. It’s not meant to be opened; it’s meant to be felt in your heart. We’re honored to have this original piece of art in our condo.


Our last foto of the week comes courtesy Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo collectively The Kitties Blue. It’s #999 and has a cameo by one HHGutt.  This is the pillow where I sleep every night. Actually, I don’t sleep on the pillow anymore cos it was on this pillow I got my first coughing fit and TW is superstitious. Now it’s more of a back rest for me. HHGutt sleeps between me and TW to “protect” her from me. As if.

Raise your paw if you sleep with your human. C’mon, you can admit it.

Hello, my sweet darling, my Human was TERRIBLE about helping me visit for like, the last YEAR but I am biting her every day to make her start doing it again. Phhfffft. Useless Humans.

Why don't you come here? Your blue pillow is cool and needs some warming. . . .

My human remembers your post about the Peace Boxes, CK! And she did a little research and found a recent post on the Facebook site saying that it will end next year, 2016.

Your photos are always so good CK, but #1 sure shows off those stunning eyes!

Tamago said...

Your photos look wonderful. I especially love # 999. With HHGutt making cameo and you being furry fur ball, it's such a cute moment :-)

We are sorry we haven't been around lately. The Mom has had her hands full trying to get Carmine to EAT (which he is making very hard!).

We love the idea of the peace box - what a wonderful concept!

Kitties Blue said...

We love this week's photos. #1 is meowvolous. We like the story of the Peace Box, and we think we picked a definite winner. C.K., our visitors and comments have been way down the last couple of weeks as well. We thought that maybe our friends were bored by us, but maybe it's a trend across the blogosphere. Time will tell. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

I used to sleep at the foot of my humans' bed but can't get UP there any more so sleep on my own on the couch in the living room. Can't hear all that snoring they do when I'm down there - it's a big plus. HAHAHAHA

Hugs, Sammy

#999 is my fave though and Spitty...I don;t know about him...I really don't.

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

Wow the #1 photo is fantastic! Mom would cringe at looking back at her beginning digital photos and how bad she was -- some of it was the terrible cheap camera. IF only she knew then what she knows now she'd have started with a Nikon! WE love your foto frenzy!

Did HH Gutt tell you he had a cameo role? I think he was really photo bombing you. You looked so sweet in your first photo.
I choose numbers 1568, 2001, and 2310. Those are all numbers that are parts of dates special to my mum.

Mudpie doesn't sleep in bed with me *yet*...she prefers to sleep in her cat bed in our bedroom. But as I type this she just got down from my lap after an hour and a half nap...her very first time to sleep on my lap! So I have hope :)

The Island Cats said...

Good ones, CK! We love how you're all curled up in #999.

pilch92 15andmeowing said...

Those are all great photos! TW does deserve to get clawed in her sleep for not having any kitten photos of you. My Sammy sleeps on my pillow every night, I get one corner of it to sleep on.

Kjelle Bus aka Charlie Rascal said...

I love your Foto Frenzy`s !
You look really sweet in #999 <3

I pick number #333 , #154 and #2015

XOOX

Mowzers, that foto #1 is simply PAWEsome!

meowmeowmans said...

We love your photos, CK! Dad's been super busy with work, so we're sorry we haven't been visiting as much!

And yes, we sleep with our humans, for sure.

Hugs!

Ah...The #1 photo of you is priceless CW. I'm so glad I asked to see it. What a perky kitty you were. Kali and I sleep with mom. We sleep all over the bed. None of this sleeping at the foot of the bed. We sleep between mom's legs, right at her side...then we poke her. I sleep on mom's pillow but I give her lots of room. I am sometimes overcome and try to lick her hairs and then grab her head as if I'm going to throw it. She has no sense of humour when I wake her this way and complains that my nails hurt. Really, she can be such a woss!
