Feral Friday: Après Christmas

Hola kitties! TW and Pop went out last Sunday and ran into Santa doing a practice ride in his sleigh! His elf gave them candy canes. Further down the block, there were carolers and they gave the peeps a special show! Wasn’t that exciting? It wasn't for The Cat who sat home alone again after being alone all afternoon while they went grocery shopping.

I can show you lots of pics the peeps took of the carolers, Christmas lights, Santa in his sleigh and even the Yule Log cake they bought but you don't really want to see those. What I can't show you is my Secret Paws gifts cos they still sit unopened—sorry Truffles and Brùlee. TW claims I haven't been in the mood to pose nicely. I did get a Christmas tree igloo/cave present but it took the peeps so long to put it together, I completely lost innerest.

Feral Friday: Après Christmas

Now it's time to 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. Any further comments on my part are in italics. Each week my image relates to one of the fill-ins. Today is another exception. It relates to all of them.

1. On New Year's Eve, I plan to go to bed early. I know the peeps will keep me up to watch the ball drop and see the Central Park fireworks display from the window. I only hope they don't get out those loud noisemakers.

2. My focus word for 2020 is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. I'm a cat. The focus should be on Me. I don't need focus words. TW don't even know what focus words are so I don't think she has one either. Maybe her's could be #senile.

3. Ham is the best thing about starting a new year. I love ham and the only time the peeps cook it is New Year's Day and Easter. They even reconsidered having it this year cos of all the news about the FDA's new rules about pork which will make it less safe. Lucky for me, they came to their senses for once.

4. My personal goals for 2020 include staying healthy. When you're a teenaged cat, it's all about your health. I hate to go to the vet and I refuse to take meds so I better stay healthy.

Feral Friday: Après Christmas

I painted a little cat next to a big Christmas tree. I love the entire piece except how The Cat came out. I'm gonna have to learn how to paint cats better than this. Nonetheless I've provided a puzzle for all the cats who enjoy them and Uncle Neil.

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 apps, Photoshop or 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.

Can bacon be a focus word??

As a sidetone, da momma's grandpa wuz a federal meat inspector - the idea of loosening safety rules, etc. is ridiculous. He retired back in the early 80s and thought things were getting worse then - now it is crazy!

I hope you are in the mood to open your Secret Paws presents soon, CK - I want to see what you got!

Brian said...

You need to open those gifts CK, there might be something fun in there. I enjoyed your answers, we've having ham tonight and shrimp on New Years Day.

Sandee said...

We opened our Secret Paw but still have a package from the Cat Scouts gift exchange. We're ready...we think Mom is just lazy.


Thanks for the puzzle!

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

I have to stay awake on NYE as we celebrate with our neighbours.
I won't be awake long tonight though as we have got back from a 5 day Christmas break this evening. The usual 4 hour drive took 6 hours in very heavy traffic.

PS
Thanks for the puzzle, another one to save for when I get a new PC in the New Year unless I try to do it on the tiny screen of my old laptop.

I love the art! Mudpie wasn't at her most cooperative when opening gifts this year either.

The Island Cats said...

We’re amazed you were able to spell that super..whatever word, CK.

Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I agree, the focus should be on you. I am going to have that Mary Poppins song in my head all night now :) I am glad you will get your ham. Have you ever had ham baby food? That is Milie's new favorite thing. Very pretty art. Thank you for the puzzle. Have a nice weekend. XO

The Indulged Furries said...

I hope you're motivated to open your gifts soon. I saw those fill-in questions and thought it was too much work to come up with a word and goal. I'm just trying to get through the end of the year.

Peaches and Paprika said...


So it's HAM, is it? GO for it! It's wonderful the things we learn about people and cats in these fill-ins. You have inspired us to purr-ticipate soon! We really love your painted cat. And the first picture too. Your artwork is always refreshing and fun and different and a treat to view cuz you never know what new and different effect is coming next!

Eastside Cats said...

In our town, they light off noisy fireworks at midnight, which The Hubby and I can watch from the windows rather than having to actually go outside! All cats just sleep through it...
Off to puzzle, thanks!

Great fill-ins and art!

Ooh, ham! Woohoo for that, CK. Hey, we hope you get to open those gifts from Truffle and Brulee soon!

Little Binky and Granny said...
