All by my selfie!

This long distance selfie was quite tricky to do, but I risked outsourcing once again, this time to a passing red squirrel. Yes, I did! I said to him, I said "Yo! Mr Passing Red Squirrel, could you stop passing for a moment and just press that there button?" And Mr P.R. Squirrel said 'OK'!  And he did! It's a pity my attention was diverted by a passing yellow wagtail at the crucial moment!!

A bit of a swizz! - Caturday Art

All right, all right! Can I hear some disgruntled muttering?!  If you follow me on Instagram and Facebook you might have already seen this, but as The Staff has been a bit under the weather slacking all week, we are unashamedly doing a re-hash job!

We are also unashamedly joining ourselves to Athena and Marie's Caturday Art blog hop (see below)

Just to make it a bit more interesting for my one remaining solitary reader (and you know who you are ...... probably!), here is my super duper Queen Penelope fridge magnet which arrived this week!  Now this really IS art!! :)

Thank you sweet Nellie ❤︎❤︎❤︎


 disgruntled - to be lacking gruntle
a swizz (Brit, Informal) - a thing that is disappointing or represents a mild swindle

It's Tocktober........

.... it's time for a tockfest!

So, here we go ....

Our contributions!

Here's the star of the show!
Purrfectly posed!

And here are a couple of has-beens extras!
The Headless Tabby and The Tux!
Not so purrfectly posed!


Please excuse lack of blog posts and visiting over the last week, but The Staff staged one of her "go slows" (more like "won't go") and so I've been instructing the NUCAT thugs team to duff her up arbitrate for a settlement so we can return to the bit where I call the shots!


arbitrate - somebody moans and somebody else counter-moans and then someone else resolves the matter by banging their stoopid heads together

Bedraggled Bee Selfie!

We have a guest selfie this week. Mr Bedraggled Bee-Bumble wanted very much to get his plight highlighted in the world's press regarding his reprehensible living and working conditions. It doesn't matter what the weather is like Mr B. Bee-Bumble has to be out there pollinating and providing the wherewithal for the whole nectar/honey industry thingie.  It's quite a responsibility. 

However, look at this poor fellow! He's soaked right through to his little stripy boxer shorts! He's never allowed a moment to dry out or have a lunch break or hang out with the lads! It's all tote that pollen, lift that sac ...... !

But all is not lost!!!

NUCAT (who do not discriminate on grounds of species - well, not much!) have stepped up to the plate and taken on Mr B.B.B.'s case ........... and ............






Voila  ......... !

Here is now one happy little worker bee!

Caturday Art!

Today The Staff aka TAT clicked a few buttons and she managed to pastellize Tigger (aka Sparky)! I told him it was better than being "pasture-ized"! Ha! Geddit! 

Ahem! Anyway. Moving on.

She used to turn this.....

into this .....
Pretty neat, huh!! =^,.^=

We thought we'd go all nostalgic today! This photo is from 5th May 2008 not long after Tigger (aka Sparky) and I first had smacky paws met over a mouseburger take-away and I brought him home to introduce him to the family! Pity I didn't realise how successfully he would ingratiate himself over nearly 7 1/2 years! MOL

Because it's like, you know, ancient history and everything, The Staff aka TAT made it look all retro and sepia in PicMonkey and added the drop shadow frame! I said "We're not THAT old!" and she said "Tough, I'm the one with the opposable thumbs and online account!" Sheesh, no need to be so snarky!

Anyways here is the original :)
We look kind of small skinny cute don't you think? ;)
