Flashback Feral Friday

Hola kitties! We got through the A to Z Challenge! I hope I did a good job and you enjoyed reading it. I told TW I wanted to participate in the A to Z last October. We picked a theme and TW procrastinated until February when she seriously started looking for images. As it turned out, April was a good month for it since everyone was on lockdown. Normally June would be a better choice since a lot goes on during April. Now I'm back to my weekly Feral Friday posts.

Today will be a Flashback Friday from March 21, 2010.

Flashback Feral Friday

I was playing rockets on the Tree of Pain when these pics were snapped. I still consider these the best photos TW ever took of me.

Flashback Feral Friday

Today is a big day. It's my cousin Nickolette's 18th birthday! Aunt Pauline waits on Nickolette's every whim and spoils her as fur kids should be spoiled. To help her and Aunt Pauline celebrate, I painted her portrait and made a puzzle of her.

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. It is important to learn I'm the boss. At least for my peeps it is. I run the condo and they are not the boss of me. I'm certainly the boss of this feather in the artified graphic above.

2.When I was in the shelter, I was obsessed with getting out. Not necessarily getting a home but getting my freedom. All I got to eat was Iams kibble. Do you know how horrid that stuff is?

3. I feel relieved about finishing the A to Z.

4. My lucky number is one. I LOVE being an only cat.

Here's another puzzle for you.

Pop says I look 3-D in this painting. I used the oil paint filter in Photoshop after dreaming up this piece. What a long, strange trip it was. It 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 digital works of art.

Those really are quite stunning photos of you CK! We enjoyed your fill-in answers and your art too. Happy Birthday to Nickolette from all of us.

CK, you were and are such a beauty!
Two puzzles today...alright! *rubbing hands together*
It's not fun time to have a birthday, but I think all of the March/April/May celebrants should get a big 'ol party during the summertime!

Happy Birthday to your beautiful cousin! WOW! 2 puzzles, you are spoiling us. Thank you!!! My mom thanks you too as she is addicted to them now. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. You did an excellent job with The A-Z, but I can understand your being relieved that it is over. That was a fun theme. Everyone knows you are the boss, #1 :) Beautiful art too. XO

Happy birthday to your cousin Nickolette! Both of your art portraits are beautiful, and thank you for two puzzles.

Astrid said...

Hiya, congrats on finishing the A to Z. Our cat Barry definitely relates to being the boss of things and being happy he's an only cat. We had another cat for a while but Barry made it very clear he didn't feel happy.

We hope Nickolette had a purrfect birthday! And we really like your flashback photo, CK. You look especially regal up there on your Tree of Pain. And your fill-ins are fantastic, as always! Don't worry, CK, we never doubted the fact that you're the boss. And we agree about feeling relief upon finishing the A to Z Challenge. It's such a fun thing to do, but it's also a bit tiring to prepare and post for it all month. Purrs!

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

Those are two pretty amazing shots. I really love the color in your art for Caturday Art.
