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!

  2. Well done Marv! We get some partridges here also but mostly pheasants. I call them Tick Tocks because they run along the top of our hedge saying tick tock, tick tock.
    Your art is lovely, and thanks for the puzzles.

    I like both the artifications of you and your handiwork, Marv... I guess those quail are nearly as bad as having rabbits about? I know that many restaurants serve quail and quail eggs for lots and lots of exchange values - pawhaps mum could ask if any near you want a supplier??? Hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  5. Send me some of those quail as i's got none any more. Some blizzard in 1978 killed all of mine. They tell me even my great great great grandma wasn't thought of then, so I don't know how much of this is true but I'd eat one if I could. Think on that Marv and and keep your eyes open for those little chickies. Precious

  6. Marv, mom misses the quail. She had a gazillion in Florida. She hasn't seen nor heard one here in TN. since she moved here aeons ago.

  7. So Marv - inquiring minds want to know - was that quail as tasty as some humans seem to think it is??????

    Hugs, Teddy

  19. Gosh Marv - we are sorry the quail are being pests. Here in NE Ohio the quail were all frozen out by the terrible winters of the late '70's. Could you send some down here ?

  20. It sounds like that garden needs guarding, Marv! My human wishes she could have a vegetable garden, but she is terrible at growing plants.

  21. May the rest take warning and leave your garden alone!

  22. Wow, Marv! We are impressed! You caught a quail???

  23. We like you both as a sketch and a watercolor Marv, as you have that great smile...sort of the cat who swallowed the canary look, which we guess is the same as the cat who killed the quail look. Did your mom cook him up for your dinner? We love the new header with angel Nellie down in the corner.

  25. Oh, wow, a quail??! We used to see a lot of bobwhites and pheasants here, but I don't recall seeing quail. And I had no idea that they were pesky birds in the gardens of peeps! Hmmm, maybe we don't want to see any here, then...LOL!

  26. The watercolor is cool, and I bet the puzzle is difficult. I'm too busy playing with kittens to try it. :)
