Two For Tuna (Tasty Friday Treats)

Hola kitties! Is that a tantalizing title or what? You'll find out soon enough what it all means. We have our usual Friday features—Flashback Foto Frenzy, Friendly Fill-ins and even some good art drawed while you wait. I'm excited about this one. BTW, Aunt Pauline is healing but she still needs your purrs.

Two For Tuna (Tasty Friday Treats)

It's time to get rolling since we have a lot to accomplish in this little post.

Two For Tuna (Tasty Friday Treats)

How cool is this? Both fotos were chosen by cats named Tuna! The Trout Towne Tabbies' Tuna of Moon chose #4925 taken in August 2015. This was one of five fotos taken under the cloak of dark when all I wanted to do was run through my tunnel. I'm waiting for her to shoot a foam rocket so I can tear through the tunnel and chase it and she's sitting there taking fotos. What kind of nonsense is that?

Now for a different Tuna. Tuna R'son Kitty is my right-paw cat. He's the head of my posse who's hobby is—well, look at his middle name. He chose #1031 cos that's the code for when FD has to send  for an ambulance. The foto was from May 2010 and I'm up on my "soapbox" but we haven't a clue what was in said soapbox. Look at how huge it is! It better have been a cat tree or something for me. Wouldn't that be grand? Knowing the peeps, it was prolly another useless thing to clutter the condo. From the look on my face, the peeps aren't getting in there to find out.

The Friendly Fill-Ins are hosted each and every week by 15andmeowing and new co-hosts Four Legged Furballs. They think up the fill-ins and I fill in the answers. My answers are underlined and in italics. Each week my image relates to one of the fill-ins. This week it relates to number three.

1.Happiness is a full tummy and a roof over your head. Throw in some loving from Pop and a comfy cube to lay in and life is purrfect.

2. Ten years ago, I was an ordinary but extraordinary cat. I was a year away from starting my social media presence and no one but my peeps and vet knew me. I was a stunning cat without a career. Now, of course, my life is a whirlwind. I'm a celebriCAT.

3. Greenies is are the best medicine. The Smartbites come in Hairball and Healthy Skin & Fur formulas so that makes them meds. Right? The Power of the Paw is also pretty good medicine as is lots of money.

4. Most people don't know that I do love to get kissed on the top of my head. I even let TW do it. I also purr but only for Pop.

Since we couldn't reinstall my files in the new computer, we decided to upgrade the old one to High Sierra. That meant our old apps like Photoshop no longer worked without a helper file that TW didn't want to install. She decided it was safer to get a subscription to PS CC. There's a learning curve but she's enjoying playing.

One of the things she discovered was the super cool oil painting filter. So we used that for today's art. You might notice that I painted TW's paw even more pink and wrinkly than it actually is. MOL!

I'm participating in The Caturday Art blog hop which is hosted by the lovely Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty and her mum to provide a platform for anipal artists to showcase their latest digital, Photoshop and original art. No talent? No problemo. There are hundreds of one-click apps for desktop or mobile devices that will turn you into a regular PiCATso. You don't think I actually painted this, do you? Well! I'm insulted! Of course I did.

I gotta agree wif ya on happiness - a full tummy and a warm place are all I needs!

My human is still using Photoshop CS6 because she is too lazy to upgrade to CC (even though she could - she uses CC for everything else!). CS6 also has the oil painting filter, but it is probably better in CC.

Your oil painting is lovely. I can't decide if you are being offered a treat or checking TW's fingers are clean before you bite them.

Brian said...

A full tummy works for me CK and I love your photos. We use PS CC here too.

Purrjamm Cats said...

We love the "friendly fillins" and all your pics. Cool filter too! Great oil pic. Now, let's get some treats everyone! Purrs

Eastside Cats said...

CK, you look fantastic back then, and now!

Peaches and Paprika said...

We like top of head kisses too! We know we are loved when we get one. We are proud to know a real CelebriCAT! We enjoyed your post and loved the oil filter too. Human wondering if it was Painnt or Lunapic? Wishing you and yours a good weekend!

Happy Flashback Friday to all. We sure hope the next big package that comes for delivery. Is the big cat tree you always wished for. Don't worry they will give in one day. Have a great weekend.

You definitely had a lot to say today! We really do like that oil filter. We think we'll stick to Lunapic for now. MOm Paula isn't so sure she wants to take on Photoshop yet.

Savannah's Paw Tracks said...

I like that filter lots! glad your computer is up and running.

Three Chatty Cats said...

That pink and wrinkly comment made me giggle. You're so mean to TW. And she's even giving you a treat in that photo!

Colehaus Cats said...

Those are good chosen photos! We think we might like the thought of chasing a foam rocket, whatever that is. MOL! Great fill-ins and wow, gorgeous photo! No, not gorgeous, stunning! (We'll get that right someday.)

The Menagerie Mom said...

Those two shots for the Tunas are of course stunning, CK! We're hoping it was indeed a cat tree in that big box. And, as always, you did fabulously with the fill-ins! You like being kissed on the head? Around here, Thimble and Evan love that. After three years with this here human of hers, Eddy is finally coming around to the idea of smooches. Oh, and you make a masterpiece of an oil painting, CK! Purrs!

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

Our humans do that, "let's play in a minute ... but take pictures now," nonsense too. Cats should never have to wait ... for anything! ~Bear Cat

Maybe that big box contains one of those gigantic chocolate turkeys. MOL! We really like that photo and your art photo. We are surprised you like being kissed on the head. Some of us like it and some of us hate it. Lily loved it! XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

Roby Sweet said...

I've had a lot of fun with that oil painting filter in PS. It's hard to believe there was a time when the world didn't know you, CK! :)

meowmeowmans said...

You definitely have your priorities straight, CK! We love that oil painting effect, and the Tuna-selected photos. :)

Hooray for Aunt Pauline being on the mend. We'll keep purring and praying for her!

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

CK we always admire your creativity and your spunk!

Deb Barnes said...

Goodness - my Photoshop is CS3!! It's as old as the dinosaurs, just like our human! And hey, we remember your love of chasing foam rockets - it's one of the stories in our Makin' Biscuits book!! Happy Sunday purrs from Deb and the Zee/Zoey gang.

Katie Isabella said...

Love kisses on the head too. I'd love to try out the foam rockets. Mom and I are amazed that you still love the rockets. Long time for a kitty to enjoy the same toy.
