The Art of Jo Jo

It is Art time! 

We are featuring the beautiful Jo Jo this week.  We tried to take some shots of her today, between cleaning and raccoon abatement and making Blueberry Haskap Lime Jam, but alas they were horrible!   We have some pictures from the day we were trying to take some valentine photos. Jo Jo kept closing her eyes just as the picture was being taken.

And we picked this one, and we see such great art from you guys, we thought this week we would try LunaPic.


We think it came out pretty good, we just wish Jo Jo had her eyes open!

We are pawticipating in Artsy Caturday with Athena and Marie.

Feline Friday With Kozmo


 Here is a shot of Kozmo telling us all about what went on with him and Lucifer. Apparently they were discussing how they could get together to chase the raccoon that has taken up residence in the culvert across the street. The raccoon has been quite a problem the last few days. Even the dogs are upset with him/her.

Wordless Story Explained & A Limerick & Thankful Thursday

Wordless Story in 5 Pictures

First, what was Cinnamon doing yesterday? Cinnamon likes to watch out the bay window in the living room. She was letting me know that Kozmo was out front.


Kozmo and Lucifer (the black cat who lives across the street) were yodelling at each other.  1. She looked out the window. 2. She looked at me 3. She looked at the back door. 4. I moved to the other side of the living room and got a shot of her yelling at the cats! They split up, Lucifer running for his front door. 5. Cinnamon jumped down and did a big stretch yawn, her version of, I AM AWESOME!!!

A (Lame) Hot Sunny Crowed Beach Limerick

First up we are pawticipating in Poetry Thursday and Sammy and Teddy's blog! You can click on the button below and you will be taken to their blog Two Spoiled Cats!

Here is the photo we are to write the poem about!

Now we know our Mom would not even get out of the car if the beach was this crowed! She does not like crowds and is furry happy living in the middle of nowhere.

Have I failed to get to the water?
And my umbrella that I am to share?
Am I getting too hot?
Is this not my right spot?
I'll get sun burned where ever I'm bare!

Weekly Pet Horoscopes February 23 - March 1, 2021

 We are back to the regular horoscopes this week. If you like this feature please let us know.


Cinnamon, my hairy slobbery sister felt we should write the horoscopes for all pets and not just cats! And being a multi-pet household, we agreed! 
You may not know exactly when you were born and what sign yous are, there are 2 ways you can pick the right sign. You can go to several horoscope sites and read the profiles to find which fits your pet. or you can use your Gotcha Day.

Mercury went direct on February 20th! YEAH! Everyone will feel better by mid-week. 

Here are the scopes we have written for you for February 23 - March 1, 2021, with your Purrsonal lucky day.

Aries (Mar. 21- Apr. 20) It is like musical chairs this week! You all get a new role! One thing is constant, there is always change. Starting on Wednesday, you have the courage to do something you’ve never done and you are ready. There could be many positive changes if you stick to the middle path. But be careful of your temper, it could cause you problems. On the weekend and into next Monday you get closure on something that has been bothering you for a long time. Your purrsonal lucky day is Wednesday. A longed for toy is yous!
Taurus (Apr. 21- May 21) Nothing will be peaceful this week. Many things can change before next Tuesday. Watch out you don’t upset your furblings or humans, they may not like your choices or your dreams. You will do what it takes to get what you want. Moving fearlessly forward, by the weekend, you might need to make a U turn and mend some bridges. Sunday, reflect on your choices. You may need to change them. Your purrsonal lucky day is Saturday. Something you thought lost is found.  
Gemini (May 22-June 21) This week has a little bit of everything-but speeded up! Sometimes you are going so fast, you can feel like there is two of you! On Thursday you are a social butterfly! Be careful of what you say, you may put you foot in your mouth and this can cause problems. You are still in high gear, but by the weekend, you see light at the end of the tunnel (the red dot makes an appearance?). Monday is wonderful! Everything is as it should be. Your purrsonal lucky day is Monday. You are the star! 
Cancer (June 22-July 22) This week you notice your bad habits and think about fixing them. Later this week. your friendships are loving and you receive gifts. Don’t get carried away with what you are doing, if something is worthwhile, it is worth waiting for. On the weekend and early next week you have the power and focus to make things happen. You already know what you need to change. Your purrsonal lucky day is Thursday! There is definitely a silver lining!
Leo (July 23-Aug 22) Another’s stubbornness surprises you, this week, someone tries to stand in your way. Wednesday you have a deeper understanding of how what you do everyday affects your life. Purrhaps you can change your routines into something that is good for you! On the weekend you understand how you got to where you are and everything in the future is a grand adventure! You remember your dreams and you are in the playoffs! Monday is your lucky day! Everything you do is purrfect and you receive extra treats!
Virgo (Aug. 23 -Sept. 23) The beginning of this week feels unpredictable. You feel like you have lost control of everything and everyone. On Wednesday, things are great and by Thursday you start to see positives in the chaos. On the weekend you realize the obstacle was you being too convoluted. Things become loving and fun with your furblings and human(s). Good communication and purrs and cuddles can solve everything. Your purrsonal lucky day is Wednesday. You get your favorite supper.
Libra (Sept. 24 -Oct. 23) The delays from last week are coming to an end. Wednesday, things are even better and by Thursday you are a star! Things slow down Friday through the end of the week. This week, you can remove a block from your path. The best thing to do is what nobody expects you to do. Don’t take on anything you can’t do by yourself. Some of the best opportunities pop up if you keep an open mind. Your purrsonal lucky day this week is Thursday. While vacuuming a lost toy is found.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22) Don’t hesitate to kick around new ideas as the week begins. You’re exceptionally insightful, which is the perfect match for your mood. On Wednesday, your magnetic personality wins you admiration and affection. Use this to your advantage. Late Thursday through Saturday, don't take any risks. If something seems too good to be true, it is. Sunday and Monday put your plans into action. Your purrsonal lucky day is Wednesday. Your favorite treats magically appear.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23 -Dec. 21) Today you can disrupt negativity with changes in your routine. Do things differently and your thinking will change, then everything will change. Midweek you can have confidence in new things. By Friday and into the weekend you can achieve your goals, but that depends on how much you want that goal. On Saturday, do something that you have been afraid to do. The feeling will be exhilarating. On Monday, you have everyone’s attention. sit tight. Arguing won’t help anything. Your purrsonal lucky day is Saturday. You are pampered.
Capricorn (Dec 22.- Jan. 20) Your week starts wonderfully. You are a solver of problems. If there are any obstacles the solution is right there and you know exactly what to do. Life’s deeper side emerges Wednesday – mysteries, secrets, medical and lifestyle decisions-whew! A lot of stuff! Be cautious, this continues at a lesser scale through the rest of the week. Over the weekend and into Monday a mellow mood slowly takes over. Your purrsonal lucky day is today, Tuesday. You feel and are treated like the royalty you are!
Aquarius (Jan. 21 -Feb. 19) You’ve been chasing your tail for a few weeks—who am I? where am I going? This week starts the same but on Wednesday, you are unstoppable! From under the bed to the top of the curtains you are on a tear. Thursday is the day to post your song, to start your podcast to tell the world how awesome you are! You carry that energy through the entire project by starting it Friday! And to top it off…you learn a secret! Mysteries fill your weekend and Monday you are ready to start a whole brand new week! Your purrsonal lucky day is Saturday! Purrhaps a new nip Nanner!


Pisces (Feb. 20-Mar. 20) On Tuesday the battle between change and things staying the same continues. This gives you a chance to figure out what you are afraid of. On Wednesday you realize you can make a change in your world. Towards the end of the week your words in a post ripple out through the world and bring good feeling to many! Don't hesitate to present your ideas. You are unique! Your purrsonal lucky Day is Thursday. You get your favorite treats!

This is the 11th Week of Writing the horoscopes

 What is in the sky this week

 February 27–The Full Snow (or Storm) Moon - The Full moon reaches its peal in the early morning hours of Saturday Feb 27th (3:15 am EST). It is called the Snow Moon as February is the snowiest month in North America.  More snow fall in February than any other month!

 February 28 – Mercury Reaches its Morning Peak - Mercury is hard to see even at the best of times – because it is hidden in the glare of the sun. Your first good chance to see Mercury this year is the morning of February 28th. Before sunrise, you may be able to spot Mercury, just after sunrise, when the sun is still below the horizon but Mercury is above it. Specifically, Mercury will reach its peak altitude of 17° above the horizon before sunrise. To see Mercury, you will need a clear view of the western horizon, and be sure to use eye protection.

Spark and Awww on Mars

It is SPARK DAY

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!

Selfie Sunday with Marv

 I had complained that I had not been on my blog enough...Mom said, Okee Dokee, we will put you on ALL the posts until you say STOP!

 I had not realized that meant the pawpaw-razzi would follow me around 24 hours a day!  

Now I  am the selfie this week. 

The pawpaw-razzi awoke me first thing in the morning. 

There I was, sleeping in my bed in the bay window.

The curtains were whipped open and a camera was stuffed in my face! 

  I am sharing my selfie at The Cat On My Head's Selfie Sunday! Did you know that yesterday (Caturday) was their 2,500 blog post? WOW!

Caturday Art with Marv

I, Marvelous am getting Mom to help me make a painting for ME! I wanted to have a portrait like they had way back in the Renaissance. Mom thought it would be fun as we have not done anything like that in a long time. We thought about dressing me as a human like we have done before. But we decided we would leave me as a cat!


I am so happy! It turned out exactly the way I wanted it to! 

And I am going to pawticipate in Athena and Marie's Caturday Art! Athena is a drop dead gorgeous Tabby and her Mum turns her photos into terrific art! They also sell their art on Red Bubble.

Thanks for coming to see our artisitc creation this week and we made it into a jigsaw puzzle!

An All Marv Friendly Fill-ins & Feline Friday

Today its all about ME!

 

Friendly Fill-ins! 

You can click on the buttons to be magically taken to 15 and Meowing and the Four-Legged Furrballs blogs!

        
 
 Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins. Ellen of 15 and Meowing came up with the first two and her co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
 
I, Marvelous am doing the Friend Fill-ins this week.
 
I love my Mom, not Kozmo or Jo Jo or Cinnamon
 
1. I keep hoping that once again I will be an only cat. I really don't like sharing my Mom but I do tolerate Kozmo and Jo Jo. I hiss at Cinnamon.
 
Me and Cinnamon watching for Mom and Dad

2. Last year at this time, we were waiting for Daddy to come home from the hospital.
 
I love the fall!
 
3. FALL is my favorite kind of weather. Warm days, cool nights, great weather, what's not to love!
 
Mom puts sugar on cuts scratches and wounds

4. One random fact I happen to know is putting sugar on a wound makes it heal faster. It dries it out and kills bacteria. Its great for pets and people!

 And I Marv am also the Feline for Feline Friday!

There has been a shortage of shots of ME on My blog this week.
