Caturday Art: Pop Art Paisley, Plus Friendly Fill-Ins

We have a couple of fun things for you in this week's Caturday Art. First, we really wanted to show off this terrific picture of Real Cat Paisley we got from a place called Pop Your Pup:

Pop Your Pup is a company that artifies a photo of your pet, and then you select a background and they send you a shirt or wrapped canvas print with the resulting picture. They allow unlimited revisions of the artified photo, and they are super fast. We got a 16 x 20 wrapped print that we absolutely love. We selected the background with crowns because years ago, Real Cat Paisley was Queen Paisley the Magnificent, and this print will always remind old SoLT of that. And it's all possible because we won a Christmas gift-card giveaway from our friends Melissa and Mudpie last year. Thanks so much, guys! We will treasure this!

Next, old SoLT artified a picture of Paisley lounging on the super cute kitty mat we won from Ellen and all the kitties at 15 and Meowing. This art was done in Dreamscope, and since it took, like, four days to finish, we can't remember which filter we used. We kind of like it, though:

But the original is pretty cute, and you can see some of the cute heart and knot toys that were also in the package:

And, this neat little spoon was in there too. A big thank-you to Ellen and her kitties for these cool presents! Old SoLT and the Real Cats love them!

Before we go any further... Have you filled out our 100% unscientific survey on cat emotions yet? It takes literally 1.5 minutes to do, and we would so appreciate your participation!

Friendly Fill-Ins

Friendly Fill-Ins blog hopAnd 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 Webster for a change, are from Annie of McGuffy’s Reader.

Old SoLT’s answers:

1. My favorite president is Abraham Lincoln because he guided the country through the most divisive period in its history, and he did it despite suffering from depression—or maybe going through those dark periods gave him the personal strength he needed as president. Also, he liked cats!

2. This weekend, I have plans to get the blog mostly set up for next week, relax, and not think about work, which has been getting on my last tattered little nerve lately.

Real Cat Webster’ answers:

3. I barfed up my dinner last night. Sorry, Mommy!

4. I believe one day the dog and I will be friends. No one else believes this (especially the dog!) but I am so irresistible, how could it not work out?

  3. That dreamscope effect is really amazing, to bad it takes so long before the artwork is finished, otherwise we would have used it a lot more. We love the purrezzies of miss Ellen too, she's the best👍Pawkisses for a Happy Caturday😚😻

I admire your goal of getting your blog together for the upcoming week. I'm always scheduling at the last minute. And yes, Webster, you are irresistible!

  6. Sorry about barfing up, Webster, but you certainly need not apologize for it. I simply adore the canvas from Pop your Pup!
