Caturday Art and Friday Fill-ins With Marv

It is one of my favorite days of the week! Wes gets to does ART!

Then I sulked

Then I thought of a Joke!

Then I posed

Then we played around in Photoshop

We thought this was a nice water color! 

Then we took one and ran it through a filter on the Deep Dream Generator! And I LOVE this one best!

You should click on Athena's Button and you will be taken to her blog where you can see all the other GREAT ART! There are a lot of talented people, cats and dogs out there!

AND while Mom and Me were painting on the computer, we thought we would do the Friday Fill-ins. These are hosted by 15 and Meowing and the Four-Legged Fur Balls. 

Click here to view and enter the linky list.

I, Marvelous am answering the Fill-ins!
  1. My hairy slobbery sister Cinnamon is too energetic, when we are on the computer, she wants to play ball.
  2. I am willing to give up biting for treats.
  3. One random fact about me is I grumble, all the time. (Marv's grumble is a cross between a growl and purr).
  4. My SMILE and the size of my murder mittens makes me unique. (Marv has huge paws for his size).

Thankful Thursday with Jo Jo

Jo Jo is a very happy cat. She starts each day with joy, so mes asked her why she is always so happy. This is what she told mes. 

Be thankful for the things you may take for granted we were adopted into one of the best homes.

The things we get very used to having can become things we take for granted. But they are not things every pet in the world has access to. I am so very lucky to have been adopted into a wonderful home. A few things I like to reflect on and feel very thankful for are:

  • A roof over my head and a warm home.
  • Plenty of drinkable water.
  • That I don’t have to go hungry.
  • That I get taken to the vet regularly.
  • Being able to enjoy the small and free pleasures of life.

Wes is pawticipating in Thankful Thursday at Brian's Home! This is special edition Thankful Thursday Blog Hop because today is Remember Me Thursday, the day us who have been adopted to remind others how important pet adoption is! At our house all of us cats are adopted and we want to help all of those pets still waiting for their forever homes.

And they broke the Emmys record for most wins in a single season for a comedy!  They are a Canadian show and Schitt$ Creek is terrific. They deserve it all.

Cinnamon's Selfie on Sunday

 We have had some cooler weather because of all the smoke.
That has meant Cinnamon has not been able to go for her daily swim.

Mom and Cinnie have been going for 2 or 3 walks a day with a nice long walk with a ball chase after supper and before bed. Cinnamon is an energetic dog and LOVES her exercise.
Today Mom went out and Cinnamon was in the flowers bed!

Mom asked,  Why are you lying there in the middle of my flowers?

Cinnie answered " I thought I'd be a Collie Flower?"

Mom said, Oh No! Marv is rubbing off on all of them!!

Cinnamon chased the ball up and down the street, and Mom said, Do you think you can sit still for a moment and I can take your selfie for Selfie Sunday.  She did! (Except for her tail)

She even smiled her best smile!

Meow Like A Pirate on Artsy Caturday

 Mom had Friday off. She had some major work on her teeths on Thursday and when she comed home from the dentist, she looked like she had stopped a truck with her face. She did not feels much like working on Friday, so NATURALLY, us pets assumed that meant wes could has her undivided attention!

When Mom mowed the lawn, Cinnamon kept putting her ball in front of the mover and when Mom came in and sat down, wes assumed she would create the most purrfect Pirate Portraits EVER for us for MEOW LIKE A PIRATE DAY!


 Yes...Wes wanted portraits!

Wes knew that Mom had been thinking about creating us some new portraits painted in the style of the old masters and she had been looking at how that is done using PowerPoint and this was the purrfect opportunity. And Because Ye can't be part of a crew without a proper pirate name wes all gots new Pirate Names too!

Kozmo or should wes say Count Paisley Williams was the first one.

Then it was Cinnamon (Periwinkle 'Gassy' Sharkfin

Then wes did Marv (Red 'Fierceful' Lynx)!

And Lastly the Gorgeous Jo Jo (Pearle 'Goddess' Shade

AND Wes writed a Pirate Story! 

Have you heard of Red 'Fierceful' Lynx, the pirate? His friends call him Red for short. He loved to range across the Seven Seas! When people saw Red coming, they would scream, "Run! Run for your lives or he'll put you in his brig! Everyone feared Pirate Red and his crew, Goddess, Count and Gassy. Red did not want to be feared though. He just wanted to make everyone happy!

To keep people from being scared, he took down his pirate flag 

And he flew a pair of SOCKS!!

As everyone knows that Pirates favorite socks are ARG- Gyle, the people felt much better and invited Red and his crew into town for arrrrrrrrrrrrrtichokes and Chips A-hoy cookies!
Wes also pawticipating in Athena Marie's Caturday Art! This week hers looks like a GORGEOUS oil painting. Please clicks her button to see all the other wonderful pet art. There is some real talent out there!

Wes can't waits to see all the pirates and the beautiful art (And do the puzzles)!

This week wes thankful for spiders!

Wes is thankful that Bitsy Orb Weaver spider has made our deck her home!

She had built her web across the  back of the deck. Alas, Alex has taken the SLR camera to Calgary and Mom's phone camera does not focus on Bitsy furry well.

Wes got this photo from the inter webs and it looks just like her - just a little darker, Bitsy is more a coffee with cream color. She is a gorgeous spider with her yellow and black-banded belly and legs and silvery carapace. 
Why is wes thankful for Orb Weaver spiders like Bitsy? They catches a zillion bugs and they builds beautiful webs.

While Mom was talking to Mr D, a fly got caught in her web! And right away, a wasp flew in thinking it could gets a free meal! It got caught in the web too! Bitsy was a really busy lady!
She was down wrapping up her meals and heading to her hiding place, so quickly, Mom had trouble catching a photo of her.

 Most of the time, she is up in her corner - waiting for her next meal...

She will most likey be decorating our deck with her gorgeous orb webs and she will gets bigger and bigger throughout the fall. When its time, she will lays her eggs and disappear. Wes are looking forward to sees how big she will gets and her beautiful webs when they are covered with dew in the mornings!

Orb spiders are harmless, as gentle as the heroine of Charlotte’s Web. Orb spiders are non-aggressive  and they play critical role in insect control. Here, the number of spiders is astounding, hundreds of thousands of them live in each hectare all controlling insect populations. They are critical for any ecological balance. And wes LOVES looking for them and watching them!
