First Artsy Caturday of May With Marv

Firday April 30, 2021 is TABBY DAY and this TABBY caught a quail! 

Our quail population has growing exponentially and they are pests! We have a million of them in our yard and Mom swears that they have eaten half the seeds that she planted in the garden. I thought I would guard the remaining seeds! After all Mom works so hard to make the right green stuff grow! I want to make sure she is happy!

 Here I am beside the deck showing Mom what a great Hunter I am!

I asked if we could make it into art for Artsy Caturday!

First we did me as a sketch!

Then me as a Watercolour!  

I think I look terrific as a Watercolor!

1. I wouldn’t mind if I was an only cat, but after 4 years I am starting to enjoy playing with Marv.
2. I want to roll in my fresh catnip, but until it grows, I will roll on my Yeow Fish!
3. Others come to me when they need head butts and purrs and being loved by a big cuddle bug.
4. Snuggling with my Nellie Bellie is a memory that I regularly think about.


We are we are also pawticipating in Comedy Plus' Feline Friday

Attitude of Gratitude

A few days ago, Alex was playing with his Apple Computer's camera and he got some strange shots of Cinnamon 

This is Cinnamon SQUARED!


And Cinnamon TRIANGLED!

We all laughed! We are thankful Cinnamon loves it when everyone laughs! Cinnamon has an Attitude of Gratitude! She hardly ever gets mad, she looks at everyday as a gift, not to be squandered, not to be wasted being angry, or slid through feeling sorry for herself. She is always as happy as she can be! We hope her funny photos, can add to joy to your day by making you happy! We are thankful for Cinnamon!

We are thankful for all the Hops people and pets spoonsor! We have made so many wonderful furrends! We are thankful for those who come and visit and comment on our blog! 

Once again Mom has to go to the big city today. This is the third time this week so we did NOT get a chance to write a poem to pawticipate at Two Spoiled Cat's Sammy's Poetry day. Maybe next week. 

Thank you Brian and family for sponsoring Thankful Thursday! You guys ROCK!

Weekly Pet Horoscopes April 28-May 4, 2021


If you don't know what sign your pet is, click this link to the Farmer's Almanac's Pet Zodiac Traits page, This page explains the different traits for pets born under each zodiac sign. If you already know when your pet was born, it is fun to see if your pet’s sign seems true. If you would like a Birthday Horoscope for your pet, send us an email and we will try to get it done for you!

 Here are the horoscopes we have written for you for April 28-May 4, 2021, with your Purrsonal lucky day.

Aries (Mar. 21- Apr. 20)
It's time for all your past good deeds to catch up with you. You have done some, right? If so, you can expect an easy day. The middle of the week is less fun, but don't stop playing: It will keep you in good spirits even as the drudgery threatens to drag you down. On Friday you are happy and charming. And on Sunday you have all the time in the world to sleep in. On Monday, that is sleeping in sun puddles! Your purrsonal lucky day is Monday. Maybe special treats along with the sun puddles!  
Taurus (Apr. 21- May 21) You may not be the most social of animals. If you can head outside and frolic there, you should meet all sorts of new humans and other critters. Today through Thursday is fun and flowers everywhere. Friday and Saturday are exciting, and Sunday is emotionally rich, but, compared to the rest of the week, low-key. You wish you could take things lightly on Monday. Everything is significant and intense. You may feel a surge of jealousy over something it's ridiculous to be jealous about. Your purrsonal lucky day is today, Tuesday. Something magical can happen.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) You can't help but wonder how the human(s) are going to see today's antics (some may not be your fault)! It may be a good time to get on their good side as early as possible. And on Wednesday. And on Thursday. You and your family have just hit a rough patch. Friday, everything shifts 180 degrees. And you focus on your human(s). Starting Sunday, you decide to try a different way of eating, zoomies through the living room or practicing sun salutations. Your purrsonal lucky day is Friday. You find something you lost.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) You have a strong intuitive side, so check out your human and see how they tick. Today, focus on small details and friendships. Spend Wednesday and Thursday with friends. But on Friday and Saturday, stay close to home because something there needs your attention this weekend. Deal with it directly and it won't blow up into a crisis. On Monday, the tried-and-true method may not work, there are always alternatives. Your purrsonal lucky day is Thursday. Extra treats and extra LOVE!
Leo (July 23-Aug 22) You are a supreme being. Top of your game. Whatever you do, let your heart be your guide and proceed with confidence. Midweek the outside world will give you a sinking feeling and you'll find yourself retreating. Thursday is quiet, but Friday is a return to excitement! All friends action and love. The good vibrations will carry on through to next week. Monday explore the creative side of life, maybe with an impromptu concert. Your purrsonal lucky day is Friday! Cuddles, play and a new toy!

Virgo (Aug. 23 -Sept. 23)  You are in a high energy, get it all done mood today. Wednesday and Thursday are pleasant. Friday has a more chaotic feeling that will influence how you feel. Saturday has you thinking about your toys. Sunday, your intellectual curiosity may lead you to climb something you should not. Purrhaps it is better to hold oneʹs horses as long as the facts are not clear. Did you or didn’t you? Monday, let the humans call all they want. You'll come out when you're ready! Your purrsonal lucky day is Tuesday! There is definitely a silver lining 
Libra (Sept. 24 -Oct. 23) Show your human(s) how awesome life is. All you need is somewhere warm to cuddle. Today is purrfect for an extended snuggle-fest. You are a good listener (especially important through Thursday). Friday, your focus turns to your toys. Your mind, meanwhile, swirls with thoughts of beauty. It's amazing the unexpected turns thoughts take. On Sunday these unexpected thoughts turn to treats. Treats make the world go round and you can’t stop thinking about them. What do you want to do with them? Your purrsonal lucky day is Monday! Treats, treats and more treats.     
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22) Today you feel like a kitten/puppy, even if your age is in the double digits -- it's a lot of fun! On Wednesday, someone lets you in on a secret that changes your understanding of something you thought you had figured out. Thursday, doing something for your human makes you happier than you predicted. The key to sustaining this happiness Friday and Saturday is to take your time. Sunday and Monday is a day of energy and rebirth. The old things are being replaced by new ones. Your purrsonal lucky day is Saturday! You get the attention you deserve. 
Sagittarius (Nov. 23 -Dec. 21) You just couldn't care any less about the same old, same old today. Wednesday and Thursday, an authority figure puts a cramp in your style, but by Friday, you're getting hugs from friends right and left, for no reason at all. Saturday, your goals will suddenly seem more attainable than ever. Expect rich dreams on Saturday night; you won't be able to get them out of your head on Sunday. But Monday you have a change of mood and feel out of sorts. Your purrsonal lucky day is Friday. Something you lost is found! 
Capricorn (Dec 22.- Jan. 20)  Something special can happen this week. Are you ready for a leap into the unknown? Some things might not seem possible on Wednesday or Thursday, but if you persevere and don't quit they happen. Friday devote some time to a new project. You go into Saturday with a ton of energy but things go in unforeseen directions. Human(s) and furblings figure strongly on Sunday. Monday is a good time to get in touch with your hunter's intuition. It will set you straight. Your purrsonal lucky day is Monday. Life is sweet!
Aquarius (Jan. 21 -Feb. 19)  Your sense of mystery is fully engaged and that might spook your human(s) when you get extra-weird. Sometimes the most amazing experiences begin with the most unpromising circumstances. Wednesday and Thursday are ho-hum, Friday is social but intellectually stimulating, and Saturday you stumble across something utterly, wonderfully, mind-bendingly new. On Sunday, unwind. The world is in your claws! Monday though you are back to earth. Your purrsonal lucky day is Sunday! Something that is soft and cuddly will be at your disposal.

Pisces (Feb. 20-Mar. 20)  As wise as your criticisms are on Tuesday and Wednesday, the human(s) you're around are uninterested in hearing them. You're going through big changes and you kind of like where it's all heading. Other animals may fear the inevitable, but you embrace change and want to see if you can make the most of it. If any problems arise at end of the week, be quick on your toes and solve it right away. No sense letting weirdness linger. Monday, you have doubt. Sleep all day! Your purrsonal lucky day is Thursday! A wand toy or a ball!
This is the 20th Week of Writing the horoscopes

What's Happening in the Sky This Week

Tuesday, April 27, 2021
The Moon reaches perigee — the closest point to Earth in its orbit around our planet — at 11:22 A.M. EDT. It will then sit just 222,064 miles (357,377 kilometers) away.

Time to dust off the binoculars and lawn chairs, it’s nearly prime star gazing season! As pleasant overnight temperatures become more consistent across the lower 48 during the month of May, head outside to enjoy several worthy night sky events – including a meteor shower and a total lunar eclipse. Just don’t forget the bug spray if you’re in the Deep South.

Spotting the International Space Station is always a great activity and is easy to do thanks to this handy tool. For even more events to look for in the night sky, check out the “tonight” feature on the EarthSky website.

Next Week 

Tuesday/Wednesday May 6th/7th, 2021

Eta Aquarids Meteor Shower - The Eta Aquarids are a decent shower for many in the Northern Hemisphere, though they put on a better show for those near and south of the equator.

If you live in the lower 48, you may be able to muster about 20-30 meteors per hour during the shower’s broad peak, which is centered on the morning of May 5th. The meteors will appear to radiate from Aquarius, but look at as much of the southern sky as possible to catch more meteors. The waning moon may prevent some of the more faint meteors from being seen. If there’s a clear night where you live around the week of the peak, look to the south before dawn to try to catch a glimpse at some of the dust and particles left behind by Halley’s Comet.

Selfie Sunday with Jo Jo

Jo Jo is Orange

Mom is Blue

 It is Sunday and that means it is Selfie Time. It was Jo Jo's turn and I asked her if she was ready to pose for the selfie.

I was a little surprised and I said, Why?

Jo Jo then told me how I had given both Kozmo and Marv more treats than her, not only last night, but the night before that too! She told me that Kozmo had gotten 13, Marv had 12 and she only got 10 last night. She then jumped down out of the cat bed in the bay window and stomped off.  

A little later I caught up to her in the bedroom.

I said, "Jo Jo, I am sorry, I did not realize you got less treats than the boys. I don't usually count them, I just grab and give."

She said, "I want to stay mad at you longer."

I said, "What can I do to make it up to you?"

She said, "I want you to count out the treats, out loud and make sure that I get 2 more than Marv and Kozmo!"

I said, "How about I count out loud YOUR treats and then just give Marv and Kozmo theirs. That way they won't get mad because they are getting less than you."

"Deal!" Said Jo Jo, "Meet me in the living room."

And here is her Selfie Sunday picture! 

Does that look like a smirk to you?

We are grateful we can share our selfies and see all the other pawticipants at the Cat on My Head's Selfie Sunday blog hop!

Caturday Art with Kozmo and the Friendly Fill-ins!

 Yep! We took Friday off again! This time Mom had an upset stomach and she spent most of the day in bed! Jo Jo, Kozmo and Me took turns laying on the bed with her. It was fun! We could do this everyday, but it means the posts don't get written and the  furrends don't get visited.

FIRST I, Marvelous am going to do the 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.

1. Astronomy is a non-cat related blog I follow. I go to this blog after I write the horoscopes so I can see what is happening in the sky this week! 
This is the Pink Moon which is what the April 26, 2021 Full Moon is called!
2. My favorite place to shop online for Cat Treats and Toys is
3. Snoozing in the sun with Mom in the bedroom has been keeping me busy lately.
4. If I could go back in time, I would tell my younger self  don't BITE Mom!

Now onto Caturday Art with Kozmo!

 Kozmo likes to sit on people's chests on the sofa. He then purrs and sings while his back is rubbed and stroked. Mom tried to take a picture of him, but of course, one handed and his face only 5 inches away, it was pretty crappy....

Mom did not even take it off her phone...then when Mom was moaning and thrashing around on the bed this afternoon, I opened her phone and went to the PAINNT app. 
Being a cat, I can't remember which filter I finally chose....

I emailed it to Mom and she said we could add Kozmo's picture to the Laptop and to the other weird black box on the screen (the laser printer) while Mom watched the news and Kozmo and I are really happy with it!  We even made a puzzle!
