Feral Friday Treats & Toys

Hola kitties! We’ve been having some severe thunderstorms in the hood. TW had the nerve to storm shame me on her FB page! She—the one who needs a thunder shirt. The truth is that I remembered something I needed to do in my office UTB. That’s why she saw me scamper under the bed. I admit the timing was bad since it was seconds after a huge flash of lightning and crash of thunder. I’m a feral kitty and I’m not scared of anything. End of story but not this post.

I'll start with a Flashback Friday Foto which hasn't been edited in any way. It was suggested by the Tabbies o' Trout Towne.

Today's foto #7312 is a flashback from October 2016 which wasn't that long ago. I'm surveying some of the loot that was sent for review by the Bavarian Cat Tool Co. Look at all the valerian toys! Unfortunately the delicious scent of the valerian nearly drove the peeps out of the condo so those toys are packed away in triple plastic bags. Every once in awhile TW takes one of them out for me but she can't find the owl pillow which was the one I really liked. That figures. She took about a million fotos and this is one that didn't make the cut prolly cos of the dirty column. That has since been cleaned and repainted—Not.

Let's join the Friendly Fill-Ins, a feature held weekly at this time, which is already in progress. Our hosts—15andmeowing and Four Legged Furballs need no innerductions as they are giants in the cat blogging world. 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 or two.

1. When I can't get TW to play with me, I get depressed and mope around.

2. Bring back Chinese takeout. The heck with the meatless junk the peeps have been eating. They say it's healthier for them, yet I haven't seen it. TW is draggier than ever and I'll bet her blood pressure is just as high. TW sez she'd like civility to be brought back. The past few years it seems to have disappeared. What happened to humans being kind to other humans not to mention cats.

3. I'm embarrassed to say I was a little spooked by the storm. Spooked. Not scared. Just a little, mind you. In fact, I just opened a satellite office in the walk-in closet.

4. I feel like cat treats give my life meaning. Imagine how shocked I was when TW announced we were out of SmartBites Wednesday night. The peeps think I was in shock last night from the storm, but it wasn't. Luckily TW ordered more from Chewy and they arrived the next day.

This art pic may look familliar. It's the art I used last week to create the coloring page. It's such a colorful and magical pic. If you tried your hand at coloring the pic, how close did you come to these colors?

This will be 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.

WHAT?!?! And I thought you were going to say biting gave your life meaning! We love to watch you and TW play - sounds like you have so much fun!

I thought you were going to say that biting TW gave your life meaning too! Your colouring page looks lovely all coloured in. It would make a great puzzle, hint hint!!

Brian said...

Those were terrific answers and quite stunning art CK!

edie said...

Don't worry C.K.,sudden loud noises can catch you off guard. I'll be glad when these summer storms are done, they've been really bad this year.

Eastside Cats said...

I love that you still enjoy playing. The only time Mudpie was scared of thunder was one day when she was sleeping in her KatKabin. All closed in I guess the BOOM was extra loud and she shot out of there like a cannon.

Storms can be scary. Did TW run under the bed with you???

The Tabbies of Trout Towne always pick great photos. My cats are not allowed valerian I can't stand the smell. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins. I always enjoy your answers. My Sammy always seems to have stuff to do UTB during thunder storms too. He is the only one that gets scared. I hope you get some Chinese food soon. I love your art, but I wish it was a puzzle too. Have a nice weekend! xo

That storm may have even scared me, CK! No shame.

Sandee said...

Love your fill-ins. Kitties always do a better job on these. Just saying.

For some reason I'm now hungry for Chinese.

Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. ♥

Lovely art!

I'm glad my mum doesn't give me the meatless stuff she eats :)

Little Binky and Granny said...

Your artwork is amazing, we don't come close with hand colouring, but not with an editor either... You've got it all in your paws, right😸About the owl pillow..maybe someone is using your pillow as its own ;) Pawkisses for a Happy Week ahead and we hope the storms passes quick🙏🐾😽💞

The J-Cats said...

Your artwork is lovely. You have a real feel for it.

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

We love your artwork.

Don't tell but if we don't STOP having thunder storms here Miss Piggy (aka Yin) will lose weight as she refuses to eat when it is thundering. She is too busy hiding under the bed.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

It was not very respectful of The Woman to post that story about your purrfectly normal reaction to scary loud things in such a public venue. I sympathize COMPLETELY, as my Human says embarrassing things about me all the time. If only we had THUMBS to retaliate!

As I am sure I don't need to point out, my Human has completely failed me on almost every level in the past several days, uh, weeks, uh, months, but she swears we are trying again. Yeah, I'll believe that when it happens. But meantime: XOXOXOXO

The Indulged Furries said...

It's been a difficult time for you - TW lost your owl pillow, there was a noisy storm, and you ran out of treats. All that yet you still created a beautiful piece of art.

meowmeowmans said...

Great answers, CK. You know who's not afraid of boomers and stuff? Ava! Although for some reason, house guests scare the bejeezus out of her.

The Menagerie Mom said...

CK, I'll admit I'm a bit confused. You say that when TW refuses to play with you, you get depressed and mope around. but, wouldn't biting her be more effective?
