Artsy Caturday with Jo Jo

 This week we got a terrific photo of Jo Jo!

Alex took a shot of Jo Jo sitting in Mom's office chair. We thought it would be purrfect for making a pawtrait of Jo Jo. First we We put a Photoshop filter on it (Filter>Artistic>Poster Edges).

We liked it a lot, but then we thought we would try something funky! We have this great image that we thought would really make a great graphic with the Deep Dream Generator

We selected Deep Style and the above image and then selected Generate. We got the following wonderful piece of art.

We also made puzzles!

Poems and Thankfulness

Much Sadness 

We were stunned when we heard about Bear Cat
The sweet and amazing Bear Cat, from, sadly passed away on Sunday, May 9th, after an unexpected an sudden battle. Fifteen years ago Bear Cat rescued his Momma and worked his magic to improve her life on a daily basis. Now, there’s lots of sadness and Momma Kat and Sister Ellie need our love and support.

Please stop by with love, hugs and words of comfort here:

Marv's Doggerel on Poetry Thursday at Two Spoiled Cats

We LOVE Sammy's Poetry. He does such a great job and we love that he sends Teddy and Mom photos for next week along with his terrific poems. I am not really good at it but I do get inspired some times and this week, I Marv, was INSPIRED! Here is the photo he sent!
Here is my poem!
Dragon in the Clover!

 Today will be fun, sister one did say,
As they travelled the trails to get to the hay.
They travelled the path in the old wagon,
The little boy hoped they’d soon see a dragon.
But all that they saw was corn in the field,
And a surly old man who would not yield,
I will show you another good game that I know!
Said sister two, all that I need is your shoe that is blue!
A tussle erupted and arguing began,
Sit down! And Be Quiet! Said the old man.
We will be at the field as soon as we can,
And if you are not quiet the dragon will eat you,
And your shoes that are blue, he will swallow you whole,
Without even a chew as we go over the knoll!
The children got quiet, and sat down proper,
And they soon saw the dragon-who was a whopper!
He smiled and laughed and then he giggled
His body it shook and his belly it jiggled.
The trip was fun and then it was over,
And the dragon he sat in his field of clover! 

Now if you click on Sammy's Graphic, you will be magically whisked to Two Spoiled Cats where you can read Sammy's Poem and find all the other poets!

Weelky Pet Horoscopes May 11-17, 2021

 Good Morning! What a glorious week it is!

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 Free 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 May 11-17 2021, with your Purrsonal lucky day.

Aries (Mar. 21- Apr. 20) Tuesday and Wednesday, luck is not on your side; everything can’t go your way all the time. Thursday things turn around. Fun on Friday is spontaneous, but Saturday and Sunday are quietly satisfying. On Monday, think about what you're going to say, and talk to your human(s). They will listen. Your purrsonal lucky day is Monday! Your human(s) brings out the best in you with their love!
Taurus (Apr. 21- May 21)  Tuesday and Wednesday, you feel like an astronaut lost in space. Get a furbling or your human bring you back to Earth. Thursday and Friday you feel rushed. Again-weird. Breathe deeply. Take things slowly. Everything else will be back to normal (actually, better than normal) this weekend. On Monday, get close to your human, you both need a good cuddle! You can lift their spirits. Enjoy! Your purrsonal lucky day is Sunday! You get your favorite food!

Gemini (May 22-June 21)  This week, you’re running in two directions, as only a Gemini can do. At least you’re not bored. You know the direction you want to go, and while you may not know everything it takes to get there, you can take action now. Thursday and Friday you are having so much fun that you might start to wonder why every day can't be this awesome! Through Monday, try not to let yourself worry too much about the future, though -- it interferes with the present. Your purrsonal lucky day is Friday! Treats, treats and more treats.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) Tuesday and Wednesday you have the time for letting your mind wander, and you may decide to wander literally too, if the door is open! Nothing happens Thursday and Friday, you are content to watch the world go by but Saturday and Sunday are crowded with people! Purrhaps your human(s) have a party. Your wild side is appears Monday and everyone likes it! Your purrsonal lucky day is Monday. You roar and people listen.
Leo (July 23-Aug 22) It's much easier to get along with other critters today -- even weirdos like ferrets! Your energy makes life a little sweeter for you and your human(s). Later this week, you need to listen to others as well as to yourself. You don't need to pretend you have answers you don't have. You learn something new on Thursday. Friday something changes your mind. As clear as everything once seems, the weekend brings you news and Monday the world opens up for you! Your purrsonal lucky day is Saturday! You get the attention you deserve.

Virgo (Aug. 23 -Sept. 23)  You are busy this week. Your organizational skills are legendary -- especially for a species that doesn't have thumbs! Your toys are all right where they're supposed to be and you can lie back and enjoy the good energy from your human(s). You have much in common. Their time with you may be tight on Thursday and Friday and you may not get the amount of attention you deserve. The weekend is purrfect for lazing in sunpuddles and Monday you are adored. Your purrsonal lucky day is Monday. Extra treats and extra LOVE! 
Libra (Sept. 24 -Oct. 23)  Praise from your human just isn't enough today. You need attention from others, too. Just being yourself should do the trick. Wednesday and Thursday the beauty of the world outside your window amazes you. Friday is what you make it. Saturday and Sunday are an extended, harmonious reverie. Monday, you want to experience new things. You could feel guided by your inner wild spirit and this could set the tone for your actions for the rest of the year. Your purrsonal lucky day is Saturday. Life is sweet!   
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)  You have more friends than anyone realizes, though not all of them are real. Spend some time chasing them around the house and enjoying a good nap with them and see if your human(s) thinks you're nuts. Wednesday can be full of activity and you may forget about everything. Thursday and Friday you are at your happiest helping other people. Saturday your attention is on your human, spend Sunday focused on them. Monday, don’t take any risks they are not going to go your way. Your purrsonal lucky day is Thursday! A new wand toy or a ball are yours!
Sagittarius (Nov. 23 -Dec. 21) Your human may think you lack a sense of humor. Some humans just can't tell when you're laughing. So don't even consider stealing the balls in jest today. Wednesday, listening to someone reminisce about their past may lead to thoughts of your past, but love from your human(s) Thursday and Friday ground you in the present. Saturday and Sunday, communication is excellent, and so is the food. Monday your human tells you their dreams. You'd rather realize yours. What are they? Your purrsonal lucky day is today, Tuesday! Cuddles, play and a new toy! 
Capricorn (Dec 22.- Jan. 20) Today and Wednesday, your fun comes from creative pursuits, but toward the end of the week, take your fun where you can find it. Worry Thursday and Friday, you are worried until Saturday. Saturday and Sunday are glorious days. Someone  tells you a joke that has your gut muscles hurting for days. You need to step up and show the humans what you're good for Monday, Bring them a gift from your hunting adventures or maybe by scaring off the spider in the bedroom. Your purrsonal lucky day is Sunday. Something magical happens.  
Aquarius (Jan. 21 -Feb. 19) Try to take care of all the little details today, including the kibble near your food dish and the toy that is buried under the sofa cushion. You set everything straight. Wednesday you are muddled and don’t feel like you're having much of a positive effect on the human(s) around you. Thursday, you want the best for everyone. Friday you ponder freedom, but the weekend returns you to smaller concerns. Express yourself eccentrically on Sunday. Monday you LOVE everyone. Your purrsonal lucky day is Saturday. You get Catnip or a favorite Chew bone!

Pisces (Feb. 20-Mar. 20) The human(s) need your help today and Wednesday, even if they don't realize it. You may have to deal with them like they're puppies or kittens, being firm and ignoring their protests when they try to wriggle away from you. Thursday and Friday, the discoveries you made earlier in the week are suddenly called into question. Ground yourself this weekend. Practice yoga or lie in a sun puddle. You are not charging out of the gate on Monday. Matter of fact, you might not even leave the house. Your purrsonal lucky day is Wednesday. Something you lost is found!
