Feral Friday—Romance in the Air

Hola kitties! Have you missed me? I know you might have gotten used to me posting every day last month. All good things must end. I got some prezzies this week. Spring is the time when a young cat's fancy turns to love. I have a boyfurrend! He's so handsome.

When we got the new windows, our next door neighbor offered to let me stay in her unit if they weren't doing both units the same day. As it turned out, the windows were installed in both units the same day but to show my appreciation. I sent Livesey a little thank you gift. There was a nip nanner, some noms and treats. I'm a lucky cat cos I get all kinds of prezzies gratis.

We got a message the other day Livesey had his staff leave a bag outside our door. I wasn't feeling well that night so TW waited until the next day to show me my prezzies. Thank you Livesey and your human.

There were some fishie toys, noms and treats. I think I like them.

Livesey and the nip nanner.

I think I like him too. He's so handsome. In fact, he quite looks like Spitty; only a local version of Spitty. You know how I love me some Spitty. Someday after social distancing ends, I hope I get to meet Livesey in the furz even though I don't usually play well with others. We did have a neighboring cat on this floor who used to pop in to see me and there was no hissing or anything. He never gave me prezzies

Now it's time to join the Friendly Fill-Ins, a weekly feature held 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 which 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 it applies to number one.

1. I just finished my job snoopervising Pop's work at home work. I guess I didn't crack the whip hard enough cos his job doesn't need him anymore. Don't be too sad for him. He said he's now semi retired. Don't be too sad for me cos I've got a new snoopervising gig lined up. Pop has a part-time temp gig. He's gonna become a gig worker and I'll be around snoopervising.

2. I am hoping to start giveaways again when this crazy crony pandemic cools down. I received some unexpected toys in the mail the other day. They were gonna send two but sent almost a dozen. I'm gonna share a few with Livesey and give some away but TW doesn't want to go to the post office right now.

3. A hunnert post views is my idea of success. That's all I ax for. I used to get at least three times as many views but as long as I reach just a hunnert readers and at least 20 of them comment I'm satisfied. OK, not really but I keep telling myself that or I'd throw in the towel be forced to maul TW and then fire her.

4. When I can't sleep, I start washing myself to keep TW awake too. It never fails that TW starts to worry that something is wrong. I groom over and over and she sits up to "comfort me."

I'm so proud of myself. I did my first metalworking piece. I etched it in tin cos that's the softest metal to work with as a beginner. I made this one which I call Full Metal CK into a puzzle.

Then I took the metalworking and with a filter, added a paint wash. Do you have a favorite? Should I have left the metal natural?

They will be my entries 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 digital works of art.

Looks like ya got a generous boyfriend CK!

Cleo said...

Hmmmphh, boyfriend, shmoyfriend. Who needs 'em, I say. Anyhoo, the metalwork one is the best by itself. Just my two cents. Happy weekend to you!!

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

I like them both, but the metalwork is my favourite as it is so different.
Your new boyfurrend is very good looking.
Thanks for the puzzle.

Eastside Cats said...

CK, you weren't feeling well? Are you okay how, we hope?

The Florida Furkids said...

Your boyfurriend sure is handsome and generous! We love the metalwork one and are off to do the puzzle.

How cool to have a neighbor beau CK! We enjoyed your answers and your fancy art too!

Sandee said...

Love your fill-ins. You're a very smart kitty.

Have a purrfect day and weekend. My best to your mom. ♥

Livesey is very handsome!

Catscue Cat Mom said...

That is one handsome mancat CK, you have good taste. Does being semi-retired mean you get to be his semi-boss? Oh yeah, you are already his full time boss - MOL!

Feline Opines, the World from a Feline Point of View said...

MOL, I love your "when I can't sleep" answer. When I can't sleep I wander over to The Female Human and plop all 28 pounds of myself on her....then neither of us are sleeping!

Beautiful art! I hope your new romance works out! Very exciting news. So sorry about Pop's job though. What a horrible time we're living through.

Livesy is handsome. That was sweet of you to give him gifts and vice versa. Sorry about Pop's job, but glad he has a gig lined up. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. One hundred post views sure would be nice. Ever since my posts notifications stopped going out, I get less and less. That licking sound when I am trying to sleep can be annoying, Joanie likes to do that. Both pieces of art are wonderful. Thank you for the puzzle. XO

edie said...

Livesy is a great looking kitty. Black cats are awesome, and I'm not just saying that because I have one. ;) I really like your "full metal CK" artwork, it's cool.

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty said...

We like both!

The J-Cats said...

We love both your artistic creations, CK - with just a slight prefurrence for the one which is au naturel, as it were (without the colour).

We are sorry about your Dad's job. Our Mummy is already retired, but We have heard of some mean Humans taking advantage of the Situation to get rid of workers.

meowmeowmans said...

Livesy is a handsome dude, for sure, CK! And how nice that he gave you some prezzies!

The Indulged Furries said...

Your metalwork art is fantastic. And how wonderful to have a neighbor kitty who drops off presents.

Three Chatty Cats said...

Ooo, a little romance? How fun! And some cool prezzies too!

Robin said...

Livesey is quite the handsome fella! You got yourself a good friend there. It's always nice to receive prezzies from your friends. I think I like the painted metal better. It looks a little more soft and furry.

Do you think you and Livesey will be best friends, CK? We sure hope you are. When there's a nip nanner involved, how can you not be friends? And your fill-ins are fantastic, of course. We're glad your Pop has you as his boss, CK. He'd be so lost without you. Purrs!
