Another Feral Friday Birthday Wish

Hola kitties! I have to extend another birthday wish today. I'm beginning to feel like Phil Rizzuto. I've heard during every broadcast, he used to send birthday wishes to lots of people. Maybe I should start requesting that readers send in their birthdays with their number requests. Anyhoo …

Another Feral Friday Birthday Wish

I am biting the birthday peep. Tomorrow is TW's birthday; in fact, she has a coupon for a free bite provided by myself. She's way over a hunnert years old and I hate to say—wait, is she within earshot?—she looks it. She's let herself go something awful since she retired. Don't tell her I said so. Oh yeah, Woman, you are typing this, aren't you. Sorry about the truth. I'm not gonna let her pick a number. I'm going to let the randomizer decide.

Our flashback is from March 2014. Aunt Pauline suggested #3919. This is a strange foto. It looks kinda like I'm in a leopard submarine. My BFGF, Savannah's human sent me this tunnel. It also looks like the tunnel is leaning against a step. The end of the rug next to the jute rug gives an optional [sic] illusion of it being raised but it's not. And, no, I've never scratched on that jute rug although it resembles the sisal on my cat scratchers. I like vertical scratchers. The peeps don't know how lucky they are. We still have that tunnel although I haven't seen it in awhile.

We gonna go head now to the Friendly Fill-Ins, a feature held weekly at this time. Let's meet our hosts—15andmeowing and Four Legged Furballs. They think up the fill-ins and I fill in the answers. My answers are underlined and in italics with further comments in italics. Each week my image relates to one of the fill-ins. Today it relates to number one.

1. I am able to jump from the back of the couch to the top of the tall cabinet, but I won't. At least I won't while TW is watching. She gets so nervous when I'm on the back of the couch staring up at that cabinet. She doesn't think I can make it. I bet I can. She's sure I'll end up at the emergency vet if I try. Pfftt! Of course I could be wondering why there's a shopping cart leaning on the cabinet. I notice anything that's out of place which is quite an achievement living here. While we're waiting for the washing machine to get hooked up, everything that goes into the laundry/utility room is displaced.

2. I won't ever be out on the street again. Thanks to my Pop.

3. The current chapter of my life would be titled I'm Not Dead Yet. Truth. The way TW talks and worries about me, you'd think I already have three paws in the grave and I've used up eight lives. I'm perfectly healthy. I just sleep a lot more than I used to and don't eat as much. It's too hot and humid outside.

4. I've been meaning to write my life story but haven't yet. All the cats before me kept journals that I've read thoroughly. The peeps can't see these journals—only us cats can. I want to write one that humans can see and will become an Amazon best seller.

July is World Watercolor Month so I decided to paint with watercolors. My fave color is blue so I used a lot of blue. My fave subject is ME. I'd like to challenge my artistic furrends to buy some watercolors to use for one of this month's art works too unless, of course, it's not your thang.

This is my Feral Friday entry in the Caturday Art blog hop which is hosted by the lovely Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty and her mum to showcase the latest art by anipal artists using digital, Photoshop and original art. No talent? No problemo. There are hundreds of one-click apps for desktop or mobile devices that will turn your photos into works of art.

This coming week promises to be a hot one. How about in your 'hood? What do you do to combat the hots?

Now, CK, TW is not that bad! We love her. But we wouldn't bite her. That's your gig ;) Happy birthday, Pattie!

That is really awesome art this week, CK! My human wants to get back into more digital art, but she hasn't had the time. Happy birthday to TW!

The Florida Furkids said...

Happy Birthday to TW! Nice of you to give her a coupon for a free birthday bite!!!

We like your fill-ins. We'll bet Pop isn't the only one who won't let you back on the street. Your artwork is beautiful.

CK, what if TW decides to bite you back? Hmm?!? Never thought of that, have you...!

That is a great tunnel shot! Happy Birthday to TW! How sweet of you to make a coupon for her. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins. I always enjoy your answers. Good idea not to jump up there. I hope that washer gets fixed soon. I hate the hot weather even with central a/c my cats are still sleepy too. Beautiful art, but I am very disappointed that you didn't make it into a puzzle. Have a nice weekend! XO
PS: I think you need to give TW some credit too for keeping you off the street :)

Hope TW has a pawsome birthday tomorrow! And I don't think you need to write a book or journal, you're a blogging superstar!

Katie Isabella said...

Pattie, HAPPY Birthday Happy Happy!

Happy Birthday to TW from all of us, we think she is pretty special too!

edie said...

Happy Birthday TW!!! How lucky that she's getting a free bitey for her birthday. I imagine that people would pay a lot for a bitey from you. That's a cool submarine/tunnel photo.

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty said...

Happy Birthday to TW and the watercolor art is lovely!

Little Binky and Granny said...

Your watercolour art is beyond beautiful, CK. You always create such stunning artwork, we really love it. Talking between us: do you think TW would like to have a bitey from me for her Birthday, if so, do you think she can handle it😸 Pawkisses for a Happy Birthday, TW. Have a wonderful day and here comes that...well...better give you a double Pawkiss for the occassion. ENJOY!🐾😽💞

Happy birthday to TW! CK, please don't bite her, okay? We think she's pretty awesome. Just saying.

Darlin' Keisha,

I didn't know it was TW's bday, tell her 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY' for me, k? Those retirement years are meant to do whatever or to look however you want but I'm sure TW looks beautiful. ;)

You're a little daredevil with your contemplations of jumping from the sofa to the top of the cabinet. I think that might require some superpowers. True, you're a kitty and that speaks volumes but realistically what you have in mind might doing might be better to stay in your dreams or TW's fears of rushing you to the ER might be your reality. Just saying.

Your 'I'm Not Dead Yet' chapter shows that TW is concerned about ya. That's part of a mom's job to make sure you stay healthy and safe 24/7

Cool artwork. You did such a great job on the self portrait. It's a selfie with style. I'd love to try watercolors but I'll just keep to using my iPad Procreate app where I can pretend to paint without the mess and clean up. lol

If you feel like hitting the dance floor next Monday, the theme is to feature mewsic by your favorite America Idol or The Voice contestants. ;) Have a groovy week and thanks for stopping by to boogie with me.

The Menagerie Mom said...

Happy (belated) birthday to TW! Surely she doesn't look a day over 29. And your fill-in #2 is purrfection, CK. You most certainly are not meant to be on the streets. You're meant to be reigning over your domain from your throne. We're glad your Pop made sure that happened.
