Katie’s First Art Project

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

First I am so sorry I didn’t post my Friday Memes for Friday Smiles. Mom L injured her right index finger and could not type for me.  She is lots better, but if you find silly typos in this post, please ignore, Ok?!

Right! Moving on to the amazing start of a potential artist in our furramily.

Our Sunday morning started off pretty much as usual, kitties snoozing in our unmade bed.

Mom L thought Katie looked bored so’s she opened up a cat game on her iPad to see if Katie might enjoy it. I know I sure did the first time I tried it. That squeekie mousie is really fast on  that screen.

Examining her palette

I am sharing a couple of her photos from her first experience, but if you are in a hurry, just skip forward to the slideshow to view all her actions captured by Mom L.

Hmmm…I can see that I need more paw whacks in the top

You see every times Katie paw whacks that schmousie running around the screen, she makes a random color splatter.

Hmmm… maybe just a touch down here will add to the interest of my color palette

Here is the entire art project in a short slide show.

And here is Katie’s final product. Isn’t it beautiful?

Katie struggles with choices

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I gotta tell you guys, that KK aka Katie is a crazypants silly kitty! Why she struggles to make up her mind what she wants to do with all that energy she has. What toy to play with first? What scratcher to use now? Who do I chase, Savvy or TKS? On and on her choices go.

She has a favorite cardboard scratcher lounge that Mom L got her when she first came to my castle in 2018. It is a bit of a wreck now but KK still loves it best, especially for her “posing place” and “napping place”.

Posing

And then there is her napping pose.

Zzzzzzzz

Now you know how much she adores her cardboard scratcher lounger thingy, right? So here is where a fun thing happened. KK just could not decide whether to enjoy her scratcher OR enjoy one of her other favorite toys, the tower of spinning balls!

Hey wait a minute! I’m not sure if I wanna stay on my scratcher or whap the balls!!

Then she just became more undecided.

Hmmm—I seem to be losing grip on my scratcher but just look at that ball whapper toy!!

Then she started to make a decision.

I’m gonna scratch!

Then she hesitated over that decision.

Oh gosh! I still think I wanna whap those balls

Until finally she combined both!

KK is such a silly dilly kittie and she amuses all of us with her indecision about which toy attracts her the most. Do you ever have trouble deciding which of your toys you like best? Let’s hear from you in comments purrlease!

Kit Katie aka KK aka Katie 2020 Beginnings

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Katie, as we normally use when talking with her, has had a great start to her 2020 continuing recovery progress. As most of you know, sweet Katie spent her first five months in a hoarding situation. She was forever living in a dark, no windows open, one litter box one bedroom with the human and 25+ cats and kittens. At age five months, when Mom L and Dad P rescued her, she had already had a litter of kittens, most likely deceased. She was terrified and only moved in a “slinking” position.

Katie today.

 

I want to share some of her recent moments, just since 2020 began. First, you all know how much I luvluvluv my tent Mom L makes for me on our bed every morning. Well, lately, TKS has been getting there before I can. And now! Katie!!!

Oddly, Katie often prefers to jump on top of the tent, collapse it and then take her nap on the blanket pile. Strange KK!

Katie has also taken after her mentor, TKS, and found a mad crazy desire for the humans’ chicken dinners! Of course, Dad P just encourage her!

Oh gosh Dad P! This smell devine!

Dad P is incorrigible and allows her a bit more than a sniff. Much to Mom L’s shock.

Reallly? I can take a taste??!!

And of course Katie just had to start 2020, just last night, by giving Mom L another almost certain hysterical attack of impending doom! Our Dare Devil Katie.

As most of you know, Katie has a permanent limp on her right front leg. The radiologist said it looked like she had some trauma in kittenhood that caused her right shoulder joint to not form properly and there is no socket for the right leg to attach to. Nothing can be done and so far this does not hold Katie back one bit. Just makes her more special to us.

Hope you 2020 is getting off to a great start like ours. What’s new with you?
