Your Friday Art Cat Gets Moony

I knew it was a full moon week because people were driving dangerously, check out lines were slower, and, I was clumsier and more forgetful than normal. Plus, your Friday Art Cat wanted to go outside to sneak off into the bushes, and kept pawing at the door in an annoyingly persistent manner.

Cats and full moon
The Friday Art Cat must have gotten out because she managed to hang out with some other cats.


Feeling antsy myself, my husband and I found a nearby trail at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore to watch the sunset while the Full Buck Moon (one of its many nicknames) simultaneously appeared behind us, climbing over the dune.

Sleeping Bear Dunes, Old Indian Trail
The view from the dune on the hike back to the car.

The optical effect of the moon in person is so different when captured by a camera, but it effectively lit our way back along the woodsy trail. It was almost as magical as cats sitting on a branch.

Oliver & Nubia: Together is better!

Hi everyone,

How are you all today? As you can see my sister and I are having loads of fun together!😀

Our humans and us received a fun little pack of items from our friends over at The Cat Gallery.


Oliver: I want the treats!

Nubia: Always thinking through your tummy… But that’s fine I will take the rainbow toy.😀


Oliver: *rubs all over toy* I claim the feathers too!

Nubia: Oi! That’s not fair.😮


Nubia: But as long as I can have this rainbow toy…


Oliver: Be careful sis, it’s still got plastic on it!


Nubia: I am… Just testing it before the humans unpack it.😮


Oliver: *Sniff sniff* Hmm…. this is catnip too! I’ll take this one.😀


Oliver: So what are these treats…


Oliver: CATNIP MICES?!? Hell yes… I’ll have them all!😀

Nubia: Drug addict…

Oliver: Says you? You couldn’t even wait until the toy was unpacked. LOL

Nubia: It’s called advanced testing prior to allowing you to make it all slobbery lol.

Oliver: More of our fun with these toys shall be revealed soon! But meanwhile don’t forget to checkout our friends shop for all things you and your cats ever wanted.

Nubia: Yes they sell many things for cat lovers as well as us kitties.:)

Purrsday Poetry: Tachita by Katelynn Scott

Hi everyone,

Please find below the latest entry in Purrsday Poetry by spencesgirl:



She’s the feistiest cat,

that you ever will see.

Talks back to everyone,

but especially to me.

Goes nose to nose with dogs,

must be first for a treat.

She reclines every single day,

she’s only to look pretty and neat.

She has a dignified walk,

yet curses are abound.

When she doesn’t get her way,

disaster will soon sound.

She surveys her domain,

queen of everything she sees.

We are all her servants,

her fondest one is me.

Bossy from the get go,

yet made of the sweetest fluff.

I look forward to our years together,

even if some are occasionally rough.
