Caturday Art: Totally Tangerine

For this week's Caturday Art, we went to Dreamscope once again, looking for something lighter, brighter, and a little less weird than what we've done lately. We tried the Tangerine Seascape filter, and all of us are in love with the results:

The Real Cats, totally tangerine

Friendly Fill-Ins

Friendly Fill-Ins
And now it’s time for Friendly Fill-Ins, from 15andmeowing and McGuffy’s Reader. They are a fun way to learn a little bit about the authors of the blogs you read. The first two questions, answered by old SoLT this week, are from Ellen of 15andmeowing, and the next two, answered by Real Cat Paisley, are from Annie of McGuffy’s Reader.

Old SoLT's answers:
1. I have broken zero bones, but I did nearly dislocate a finger the other day--while performing the extremely dangerous and death-defying activity of turning off a light switch.

2. When I go out to breakfast, I order whatever I happen to be in the mood for, usually an omelet or pancakes or, at IHop, an omelet and pancakes (as if I need both!).

Real Cat Paisley's answers:
3. As Summer officially comes to an end, I am sad about the loss of my really good middle-of-the-day sun puddle, because the sun is lower now, and it hides behind a tree instead of shining in my window.

4. Before this year is over, I really need to scare the dog a whole bunch more. I touched noses with her two days in a row this week, so now she is totally confused about my intentions. She is primed for a good scare!


  1. I love how that came out, so pretty. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, I am glad you didn't dislocate your finger.Good job Paisley, let the dog think you like him and then whap. XO

  2. I Love that beautiful tangerine color. So bright. What are those kitties looking at?
