Kicking 2017 to the Curb Fill-Ins & Art

2017 has been a crappy year for a lot of people. I say goodbye, good riddance and don't let the door hit you on the way out. This is the last of my official art posts on Caturday. I may be posting some art as part of my blog hopping on Friday. Today I'll be offering my fill-in answers too since I had an important post yesterday which pre-empted all the usual fanfare. I thought yesterday's lead image was pretty arty if I do say so myself.

The Secret of my Secret Paws

Yo kittehs! I got to open my Secret Paws package! I've told you about the holiday tradition some cat bloggers have. Mom Paula of Sweet Purrfections does the heavy lifting. This year for the first time TW actually let me open my gifts on Christmas day. It was in the evening but at least I didn't have to wait a week or two. My Secret Paws came all the way from Texas. Dunno if its deep in the heart but it's Texas.

The Secret of my Secret Paws

Travis, Crockett and Angelique were my Secret Paws' Santas. You may know them as The Lone Star Cats. TW loved the way everything was wrapped. Unlike TW, their human knows how to wrap.

Getting to Know Ben Franklin

Have you ever smelled The Benjamin? No, really! Have you? I'd never seen or smelled a Benjamin before and neither had TW. My peeps don't have much money. Like everybuddy else, they try to save their few pennies until they really need them. This week I got to smell a pair of Benjamins. Lemme explain.

A Christmas Selfie with Santa

It's true! I saw the fat man in the red suit shortly after my DJ shift ended last night. He looks older than the peeps and well worn. I asked him to take a selfie with me and he obliged after I plied him with the peeps' holiday cookies and some eggnog. I had some jello shots left over from #CatmasEve but he didn't want those. Something about working. I hope Kitties Blue will let me join the Sunday Selfies blog hop a day late. Oh yeah, MERRY CHRISTMAS everybuddy!

Unboxing my Christmas Cards

TW has been running late this season. Very late. Usually my Christmas cards are written and mailed way before I do a Christmas card reveal here on the blog. I must tell you I wasn't very happy with the way my snail mail cards came out so my art today will consist of two versions of my e-card, which I adore.

Festive Flashback Friday

Fotos roasting on an open fire. Keisha nipping at your nose. Or something like that. I like that nipping part. Coindidink that todays Flashback Friday Foto Frenzy features two Christmas fotos? Actually no. I've been saving them all year—not that they're so great but they were picked by you, my loyal readers and they're from Christmases past.

Getting Ready for Secret Paws

Ho ho ho and mistletoe—and presents to little kitties! Some of you reading this might think that a bunch of blogging cats would be in competition with each other. Nothing could be further from the truth. Our humans get together at blogging conferences and are Facebook friends. They are constantly talking behind our backs. We help each other with blogging or personal problems. Years ago the Cat Blogosphere started the tradition of exchanging Secret Paws gifts which brings us even closer together.

Snow Globes—Pretty or Pretty Dangerous

I was going to use a snow globe as my art piece the other day but realized it would serve a better purpose having a post of it's own. There's no denying snow globes can be gorgeous; in fact, they're used all year around as tourist souvenirs. Then there's the down side especially if you have a furry family member.

CK Takes a Snow Day

Yo Kittehs! It's been snowing every other day in the lovely northeast. Right now I'm warm and cozy inside but it's cold and raw out there. Everything—including the gray snow—is covered with white. You watch, though, come December 25th it will be 60F degrees and everything will be melted. Now please excuse me while I hang some Christmas lights in here. Gotta get ready for Catmus Eve.

Fotos and Fill-Ins for a Frosty Friday

Welcome to another Friday edition of Flashback Fotos and Friendly Fill-ins. I'll be your stunning hostess. Thank you for cooperating when I axed for some suggestions last week and helping us select foto picks for the weeks to come. While these aren't exactly bloopers, they're not exactly the cream of the crop. To make matters worse, TW doesn't even 'shop them to perfection. This first one is stunning as is.

Look at my posse member Tuna working it under my snoopervision in the image below. C'mon, Tuna, feel the burn! Scratch and stretch! If you like what you see, I'm gonna give you a chance to win one of these claw exercise machines at the end of the post.

CK and TW Get Silly (at Pop's Expense)

Yo! I'll bet with all the emergencies around here you think that we're all seriousness all the time around the condo. Sunday morning I had another asthma episode in the wee hours. After my attack ended, I jumped up on Pop's bed and chomped down in his hand. It made me feel better. You know, misery loves company. By noon, I was running crazypants around the condo. I'm young at heart. Anyhoo, we do get silly quite a bit. Here's what happened the other night.

Closed for Christmas 'Shopping

Yep, it's true! Despite what the sign says, my gallery is closed so this kitteh can do some "Christmas 'shopping." I'll be back with a regularly scheduled post Monday and more Christmas art next Caturday.

Frolicking With Fraser on Friday

Ho ho ho! The big day is approaching and La Condo Keisha is getting ready. The halls are decked and the lights are twinkling. This weekend Fraser should arrive even though the peeps are still discussing a faux Fraser which won't have leakage problems but will definitely have storage problems. No room in the inn. Enough about Fraser cos we have fotos and fill-ins beginning now.

Breaking News! CK's Week From Hell

DATELINE: The condo. Yo kittehs! Anybuddy up for some news of happenings around La Condo Keisha? This has been quite an eventful two weeks! This post doesn't have too much to do with The Cat except I had to live it. I thought I was safe after I got off the mean streets and came to live here but now I'm not so sure.

Caturday Art is a Sketchy Business

Holla!!! Is anybuddy here besides me? Y'all are in for a treat. I'm decorating my studio and getting ready for the holidays. Presents are being wrapped and TW is jealous cos she hasn't done anything holiday-related yet. I wish I could say my art includes my Christmas cards but, sadly, no. Dunno why I leave that important chore to her or why I'm always apologizing for her.

Fun Fotos 'n Fill-ins For Friday

Welcome cats and kittehs! Have I got a show blog post for you today. Unlike our last post where the images was highly 'shopped and manipulated, the rules of the Friday Flashback Foto Frenzy prohibits any Photoshopping whatsoever. Trust me, you will NOT see me wearing a shower cap in any of these fotos. Immediately following the fotos, will be the Friendly Fill-Ins so let's begin.
