Thoughts on Thursday and something that is there or not?

Teaghan on Thursday


I cannot believe mine own eyes. I was just taking a little snooze and when I woke up I looked out near the window and no one knows what I saw but me. I gave it the blinky eyes a couple times.  Scared the bejesus out of the Mom. Then I looked over at Mom to say "what the heck?" Did yoo see that? But no, she didn't see anything but me saying hi to something that she can't see. You ever see anything and look up at it and scare your humans into thinking something is there? 

And here's my Thankful thought today too. I am thankful that I have a nice chair to hang out on and sometimes I spin around on it. It keeps Tommy away from me. And maybe keeps me away from whatever those ghosties are. Meow!

Tommy says Rabbit to the TV



Hi - it's Tommy.  I'm watching the Big Brother reality show live feeds. When the feeds go down, (and they do often), the rabbits, cats, and dogs from a shelter are shown on the screen.  I saw the rabbits right away! I'm used to seeing them out the back window, now I can see them on the tv screen! Mommy won't let me jump up and get close to them but I'm going to figure out a way heh heh. She says it sounds almost like I'm saying rrrrrrabit. I'm just talking to them to get their attention.

Let me know if you can understand my rabbit talk :-).

~Purrs,

Tommy

Sleepy Sunday with The Ts

Well it's sort of Sunday Selfie but the Mom took these photos MOL. We were sleeping in them.  She thinks we must have had a big night watching all the animals go by in the night. Between the deer, the rabbits, the crows, the fox, and the raccoon we are exhausted!

Take it easy today y'all!

Awww Monday and The Beach



 The pawrents and sis-furless went to the beach last night to watch the sunset. They even got to see some pelicans doing on last pass over before going back to their own island for the night.  Today they are going on a boat ride (and leaving us home again) if the weather stays nice and they can see the island where the pelicans live and nest. 

And today is Mommy Colleen's purrthday! She is our first human mommy before we got adopted by our new pawrents.  Happy Purrthday Mommy Colleen!

Sunday Selfies - Eye See Yoo

Yes, It is I, Tommy. And I have a few closeups to share with you. First, One eye, side view. Then a good nose shot, yes, yoo read dat right, nose shot not snot 😺😹. Then another even closer eye just in case yoo didn't see the first one. Finally the last one of me in my sailboat chair. It's my chair because it is broken and it tilts forward when humans sit in it and the pawrents don't know how to fix it. Some day they will get a new chair that works. Until then, mine all mine! 
Haf a great rest of your Sunday. 
Purrs, Tommy

Pee Ess, Our human sisfur is here visiting all the way from the land down under so the pawrents have been busy showing her around here in warm land.

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July here in the United States of America. We are grateful that we live in the land of Freedom. This is a day for us to celebrate with many wonderful activities with friends, family, food, and fun. We cats will do as we usually do and play and sleep and eat and maybe watch some fireworks through the window. Hopefully there won't be too much loud boomie noises.  Love and live life with Joy!

Getting ready for the big 4th of July celebration

Almost time for the big 4th of July celebration in the town of Southport NC.  The town is busy as can be today with all kinds of pre-events going on.  The Southport fire department trucks have the flag held up across the road, and flags and banners are all around everywhere you can see. It's a really big celebration here. And there are 30 - 50 thousand people expected for the parade this year. 
We went to town this morning to get some errands done and see how things are looking but are not planning to go to the parade. That's a little too many people for us to deal with this year. Already today the weather is 92 degrees and probably the same for tomorrow. As for the Ts, they are happy and cool in the house and keeping busy watching the rabbits devour our plants.
We wish everyone a safe and happy Independence Day wherever and however you are celebrating it!

Caturday Art with Teaghan and AI Art

Today's blog is artwork created in Dream by Wombo with Teaghan as the model. Take a look at the funny creations below and put your thoughts and favorite in the comments. Thanks for looking!

 The first photo is the image I uploaded to dream.ai for all and used the prompt "long haired red tabby cat playing with rabbit" (to go along with the past two posts about the visits from the rabbit to our yard).  Each artwork was created using a different chosen art style. AI doesn't always quite get it right with cats as I've seen many output with extra paws, etc. Most didn't even come out with a rabbit in it - might depend on the art style chosen too.   
 
Original photo of Teaghan

Image #1:  "Rabbit Nurse".
Well here's one with a couple of rabbits. What the heck though - AI made Teaghan and the rabbit Siamese twins? Or playing nurse?πŸ˜²πŸ˜†!

Image #2: Bunny Stalker
Art style for this is Watercolor V2. For this one, there's no rabbit in it but you get the idea that she is stalking something. The beauty of Norwegian Forest cats is that they have such powerful legs, not squatty ones as shown in the output image, but maybe that's to infer stalking. I do like how this one came out the best.


Image #3: Kitty Mama in the Woods
This one is the art style Poster Art. AI gave it a rabbit in the background and as a bonus a kitten to play with. Hah! Interesting is that the rabbit mama and baby have been eating in our yard and AI gave Teaghan a baby here, yet I did not use those words to create the art...

The bunny rabbit is back and more!

Look at the baby bunny! He is torturing us cuz we can't reach through the window. He is so cute though. We watched the mommy push its butt with her nose to show it where the best tasting plants are. She brought it right to Mom's delicious pansies. Then the mommy bunny took a few bites of some of our other plants too. Not to be outdone by bunny cuteness, then along came a snakie! A freaking snake! It slithered through the same spot that the bunny was just eating on. I kept looking at it waiting for it to move. Mommy finally went outside and scared it away so she would stop freaking out too. Whew! What a day! Happy Friday everyone! I hope y'all have some fun adventures watching nature too!

Awww Monday and bunnies

Awwww! Happy Monday Y'all! Look what was keeping us busy for a few days. There has been a baby bunny hanging out in our yard and teasing us! It is also eating some of Mom's flowers but not too many. It is one brave little rabbit coming right near the window. We run back and forth from window to window to see it. Mom thinks it can't see us cuz the glass is tinted a little. Lots of fun we've been having watching all kinds of creatures outside our windows.  
What kind of animals and birds have you seen lately?




Purrs! Tommy and Teaghan

Friday and the Pawrents are back!

Well it's a little late for Thankful Thursday, but we are thankful for the wonderful care we got while the pawrents were away.  We love our Teresa and Rob who took care of us cuz we got brushed, and played with and lots of lovin'. And now the pawrents are home! We are back to our old routine now.  Not that Food Daddy likes getting up at 4 am to feed us but we have him well trained! Hee hee.

Thankful Thursday Table trouble


Tommy:  Hey! I see you down there! 
Teaghan: No you don't
Mom:  Get off the table Tommy!

Short and sweet post today. We will be posting intermittently in the next couple of weeks. We are taking an overdue vacation that has been held off since 2019 and "the bug that changed the world" and our big move.  If I get a chance I will post some photos of our adventure here.  The Ts and the house will be taken care of by our new fabulous kitty caretakers, Teresa and Rob. They have been a true blessing and Tommy and Teaghan love them.  We are all so thankful for them. Have a great week everyone! 

Tommy, Teaghan, and Mom Brenda
XOXO

Caturday Art with Brenda's mixed media cat artwork

 Caturday Art 

For caturday art, here is one of my latest abstract pieces I made from an online art class that I've been taking. It's an  abstract mixed media art piece using modeling paste, metallic and regular acrylics, and assorted items including sea glass, jewels, stones, gold leaf etc. The name of the class is "Ancient Gold" in Maria Grossbaum's abyssimoartschool.com.  Hope you like it! 

Here is how it looked at first after coming up with a design and creating a base on 8x10 canvas.

Pre painting and sealing. The idea is that you have the top with the head and if you flip it upside down you have a paw with the toes. 

After the layers of paints I created the mosaic with pink tumbled stones on the pad, and some stones I found in a local antique store. They were selling bags of stones like those I used for the toes,  some turquoise, and lots of old jewelry. I used some sea glass for the eyes and little rhinestones in the whisker holes. 


Upside down view to see the paw pad. Cute huh? :-)


Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my cat art! Tommy and Teaghan are happy they were models :-).

XO
Mom Brenda

The T's and the Crow



Mmmrph, move over Tommy! Get outta my space! That birdie is gonna come and fly right over and I won't see it. 


This is the kind of bird we are looking for and a picture of it in our yard a couple weeks ago. A family of them have been hanging out at the top of the pine trees for a while now. We think they were nesting but can't be sure since we don't see that high up. 
Then, yesterday one of them crows flew into the window with a big bang! It got up and walked around the side of the house in a daze while we stalked it from window to window. Our Mommy tried to do an energy healing on it while one of its clan kept an eye on it from tree to tree until it finally was able to fly away. Then another one of them (an old ruffled looking one) came an sat on our picnic table, hopped into an empty plant pot and then jumped out and looked at us a few seconds then finally flew away. We are thankful the little one was ok and that it was able to fly. Hopefully it didn't hurt it's head too much and will be ok forever.
Mommy was so freaked out about the whole thing that she didn't even get a picture of any of it! 

Today we are thankful we are happy and healthy and that the little crow birdie was able to fly away with its crow family. 

XO Y'all! 
Teaghan and Tommy

Awww Monday My Window

Tommy having a happy day

Tommy is going philosophical today.  

"The window to my view of the world outside. Is it real or am I just looking at myself?"

Sunday Selfies with Tommy

Hi Y'all! This is Tommy today. I has a few different Sunday selfies for you from different angles. I hope yoo like them.
 
First, take a good look at me upside down. You can see my nose holes. 


This next one is a sort of side profile. Mine furry ruff came back out today. It must be because the dad turned off the air thingy and my furs are all puffed up.


This one is my dreamy look. I'm dreaming of mine second breakfast. Hah!

And lastly, The Paw. My loooongg paw. I was inspired by a post from a while ago from Brian and Kiki of Brian's Home.  :-) Go ahead you may kiss the paw...  MOL!


 Enjoy your Sunday effurryone!

XO Tommy
