Artsy Caturday with Marv!

 Boy oh Boy! It's my turn to star on Artsy Caturday! We LOVE to pawticipate with all the other peoples and pets and see their fabulisious creations. Once again we are going to take a so-so picture and try to turn it into something special. 

Earlier this week Mom was going through some old memory sticks and she found some old bookmarks. Some of these were for graphic sites that we used back when Queen Penelope had her blog. One of the ones we checked out today is Picture to People. (http://www.picturetopeople.org)

We got lost there for a few hours...first we made our names in fur

Then we tried some of the Photo Effects on this so-so photo

Here I am using one of the pencil crayon effects (#5)

 
And here I am in the Photo Typographic Effect (#1 changing the Font to Big)


We are going to explore a little further here as Mom is looking for a good stencil maker or something that will help her make an embroidery pattern. If you know of one, let us know! 
Now here is the button for Artsy Caturday at Marie and Athena's blog. Click it to see their art (Marie does some exquisite work) and all the other pawticipants!

Feline Friday and the Friendly Fill-ins From Marv

Yes, it is furry cold here in the Great White North and guess what I got tonight....

 ICE CREAM!
 Yes, it is below freezing here, and there is snow outside, but who does not love a tasty treat?

And a picture of Moi, eating ice cream is PURRFECT for Feline Friday!

Friendly Fill-ins 

Ellen of 15andmeowing writes the first 2 and and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs writes the second two.

I, Marvelous am writing them this week!


1. How they get the caramel in the caramilk bar is a mystery I would love to know the answer to.
2. 10,544 km or 6552 miles is the farthest I have ever been from home. (From Tehran to Vancouver)
3. I’ve lost count of how many times I've bitten my Mom (I have had a Osteomyelitis twice from Marv bites).
4.Deep Purple's Smoke on the Water  reminds me of my human Dad, he played it every night before he went to sleep.

Weekly Horoscopes for Pets January 19-25, 2021

 Its the Weekly Horoscope written especially for Cats (and Dogs) by me for you! 


Cinnamon, my hairy slobbery sister felt we should make them for all pets and not just cats! And being a multipet household, we agreed! 
You may not know exactly when yous was born and what sign yous is, there is 2 ways, you can go to several horoscope sites and read the profiles or you can use your Gotcha Day.

 Here are the scopes we have written for you for January 12 to January 18, 2021. With your Purrsonal lucky day.

Aries (Mar. 21- Apr. 20)  As the week starts, nobody can keep up with you. You blow away any competition and everyone will admire you. Your ambitions will get support. Later in the week you might have trouble getting things done by yourself. But that does not mean cooperation is out of the question. You can help someone else with their goals. On the weekend, be the first one to jump! Your purrsonal lucky day is today Wednesday! Something you have really wanted is possible!
Taurus (Apr. 21- May 21) Don't worry, be happy! Do not borrow or lend toys if you want to avoid hassles. Your happy attitude pays off and things go as you have planned. At the end of the week be flexible—others try to get a rise out of you. Don’t let them, unless a wrestling match or chase or whappy paws sounds appealing. On the weekend, you and your furblings and human(s) share. Your purrsonal lucky day is Saturday. You get a plethora of treats!
Gemini (May 22-June 21) As the week starts, you don’t believe it, but you have a hard time getting your ideas across. You need to work extra hard to stop any confusion and keep everyone straight. From Wednesday thru Friday, you can fall for some crazy ideas. You can get into arguments but don’t back down! Over the weekend, your head is in the clouds, follow the advice of your furblings and human(s). Your purrsonal lucky day is Friday. You get something special!
Cancer (June 22-July 22) At the beginning of the week, use your cleverness to get what you want. Someone you live with will, be impossible. Later in the week, you’ll have better luck communicating — appeal to their heads rather than their hearts. Friday thru Saturday you can get upset when someone borrows  (takes) something that belongs to you. On Sunday and Monday, think before you speak (and look before you leap). Your purrsonal lucky day is Sunday, wish for something tasty!
Leo (July 23-Aug 22) At the beginning of the week, you know what you want—go after it! You will find plenty of opportunity to achieve your goals (and show off!). Others will admire your accomplishments but ease back on your ego. Your pride could lead to conflict. Purrhaps others are looking for a chance to butt heads. On the weekend, take trust your instincts and set out to learn something new! You will have fun doing it. Your purrsonal lucky day is Tuesday, the sofa is moved and your “lost” toys are found!
Virgo (Aug. 23 -Sept. 23) You are outgoing as the week begins—and others will notice! You find opportunities for those extra creative ideas and impulses. Mid-week, you might not have thought you could whip your world into better shape, but there’s always something to adjust. From Friday thru Sunday, you could have problemslet sleeping dogs lie and do NOT be critical. On Sunday and Monday you find your true purpose. Your purrsonal lucky day is Monday! The world is in your claws! Go for it!
Libra (Sept. 24 -Oct. 23) As charming as you usually are, your people- skills are NOT working this week! You are extra sensitive but be optimistic. You can reverse these negative vibes. Then you can make the next seven days any way you like! Towards the weekend, try new things! On the weekend your routine is disrupted. On Sunday and Monday, focus on your one-to-one relationships. Your purrsonal lucky day this week is Friday! Belly rubs or snorgles or skrittches, your choice.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22) As the week starts, you’re feeling extraordinarily determined. Later in the week, your willpower and assertiveness shift into overdrive—you need to control your temper and deal with those situations rationally. Your affectionate nature will capture the heart of anyone you are attracted to. This weekend your hidden talents to come into play. Look for chances to show off your selflessness. Your purrsonal lucky day is Wednesday, you get your favorite food!
Sagittarius (Nov. 23 -Dec. 21) Purrhaps this week you want to stay in bed. Intense lunar and solar influences will seem to fiddle with almost every aspect of your life. You constantly hear NO! But all is not lost—you can enjoy being flighty and disruptive. Starting on Friday, it feels like a great weight has lifted! You are FULL of energy and can expect fun and love in equal measures. You enjoy hour furblings and human(s). Your purrsonal lucky day this week will be Friday, extra treats or a new toy?
Capricorn (Dec 22.- Jan. 20)  As the week starts, you are full of energy and ambition, you can expect to get a lot done and to get a lot of happiness. Later in the week be wary of new plans. Share your opinions. At the start of the weekend your creativity blossoms! When was the last time you redecorated the bathroom with the rolls of paper? You dream up daring ideas and others will be impressed. On the Monday, love your family, they will love you back! Your lucky day this week is Thursday, you have a wrestling match that you both enjoy!
Aquarius (Jan. 21 -Feb. 19) What’s going on? The events early on leave you confused, a choice between yes and no can make you pause. Let things happen and go with the flow. On Wednesday you are inspired! You are at your best and others are moved by your brilliance. But as you get closer to the weekend slow down and step back. From Saturday through Monday, put yourself first! Act out and indulge. Your purrsonal lucky day is Monday, you get exactly what you want!
Pisces (Feb. 20-Mar. 20)  As the week starts, you are a leader and in demand. Mid-week you are overcome with new ideasdaydreaming is productive! Choose the crazy ones and they will reinvent your current outlook on life. At the end of the week, put those ideas to work! On the weekend, look for hidden solutions and don’t under-estimate the power of the paw! Do NOT put anything off to next week. Get it done. Your lucky day this week is Sunday! Purrhaps you get a new comfy bed.

What's in the Night Sky This Week

January 19 – it is the peak of the Ursae Minorid Meteor Shower - This meteor shower runs from January 15-25, and is expected to peak on the night of January 19th. On this night you might spot as many as 3 meteors per hour. This isn’t very many, but the sky will be pretty dark as the moon is in its waxing crescent phase. It’ll be a nice night for stargazing anyway even if the meteors aren’t as frequent as other years.
January 21 – Conjunction of Mars and Uranus They appear within 1°43′ of each other in the evening sky after sunset. To spot the pair, which will be in the constellation Aries in the southern sky, use Mars to train your telescope or binoculars in the area, then a star-finder app to hone in on methane-blue Uranus.
Mercury reaches highest point
in evening sky at 17° above the West Southwestern horizon after sunset. You don’t need magnification to view Mercury, but if you choose to use it, be careful to avoid accidentally damaging your eyes before sunset.

Awww Monday with Jo Jo!?!

 Hi Guys! I was in the bedroom doing MY thing when Marv came in. Ever since he had his OPINE at Feline Opines last week, he has been insufferable.

He went on to say, HE did not think I could do them, as "Funny is over your head!"
 
I really did not want to...But I can be funny! 
I waited for Kozmo to come into the bedroom...
 

Then I really rattled his brain!



 

 Kozmo and I think these are Awww-Worthy and we are sharing them with Awww Monday at Comedy Plus!  Please click her button to see all the other AWWWW-some posts!

 

And it is SPARK DAY with Nellie

McGuffy’s who was hosting the Sparks is on hiatus.  She says “I truly do believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. There is hope. Together, we can light up the entire world!

Stunning Jo Jo Caturday Art!

Hi Guys! Thanks for all the wonderful comments about my Opine at the Feline Opines! Kozmo, Jo Jo and especially the slobbery beast were not too happy about it though. I have been getting chased by Kozmo, Jo Jo is whapping me with her super sharp talons! She is a Pisces and according to her Weekly Horoscope, she was to stand up for herself and Friday is her lucky day and she whapped me good!

BUT I, Marvelous, am making up to her by making the Art for Caturday of HER! 

Is this not a gorgeous Photo of her that Alex took?

 
She asked if I could color it for her...
 

She LOVED it but I wanted to do more. I then took it to Fotoram! and applied the Three filter and she LOVED it!
