Your Comfy Friday Art Cat

When the Christmas tree goes up, the Friday Art cat is not interested in batting at the decorations, or trying to climb the branches. She just waits for the red tree skirt to be in place so she can take a nap under the piney boughs. I suppose the tree brings to mind her favorite summer sleepy spot under the spruces in the backyard. When presents begin to take up real estate, she wedges herself in where she can, occasionally confronting the interlopers. Tissue paper beware!

Cat under Christmas Tree

Currently, it is snowing with purpose. We may have a foot of new snow by the time this weather system passes through. I glance up occasionally, and find that, for now, I am enjoying the seasonal flurries as they put me in a festive mood for the holiday. All the while, your Friday Art Cat snores loudly under the tree.

I am an artist, teacher, and occasional blogger living in Northwest Lower Michigan. All of my art is inspired by my life and surroundings. If you’d like to see more about my process, check out this post from my blog, Art is Not for Sissies. Thanks!

Who is the special V.I.C (Very Important Cat)? ;)

Hi everyone,

It’s your favourite black kitty Nubia back for another great surprise that we got from our humans.😀


Nubia: They got us this super special V.IC. blanket and of course that would be ME!😀


Nubia: Maybe here?


Oliver: What’s going on here?

Nubia: Oi! Get off my blanket…

Oliver: *Licks blanket*

Nubia: Hey!!! Don’t put your slobber all over it…


Oliver: *Tramples all over it*

Nubia: For crying out loud!!! You are ruining MY blanket.😥


Oliver: *Reads writing* WHAT! But I am the most VERY important cat in this household!

Nubia: No…. ladies first…


Oliver: What lady?


Nubia: ME of course!!! Rude brother.😦


Oliver: I dunno… Maybe we can agree on both being V.I.C’s?❤


Nubia: That will depend…


Oliver: How about…

Nubia: Now that is different of you O.O! Ok we can share…

Oliver: Thank you!❤

Nubia: This blanket came from the local UK supermarket LIDL btw! I think LIDL started originally in Germany and they have different deals all the time.😀 We were lucky that our humans found this blanket before it sold out.😉


Nubia:  But now it’s time for a snooze…. zzzZzz…

Purrsday Poetry: Calico Fluff

The ball of calico fluff extends
grows longer,
then longer still…
she uncurls herself,
displaying proudly floofy belly
till the last thing to curl
is her pink, barbed tongue
in a heroic yawp.
