Thank You Louis and Caturday Art

Louis it was our honor to pawticipate Wednesday's Endangered Animals post.
Thank you for this lovely button!
We posted about Cheetahs here





Welcome to our first attempt at Caturday art hosted by Athena
See more Caturday Cat Art HERE.

Actually this photo was done all by reflections no special editing programs...


The octagonal window is on our back porch it looks into our dining room
In this picture I was on my cat tree in the corner of the dining room.
Faded in the back ground is the kitchen cabinets
The candlesticks are on the entertainment center that cannot be seen from the octagonal window.
When mom snapped the photo, the flash came on creating all these interesting reflections
Her intent was to capture the picture of me looking at her.
H A P P Y   A C C I D E N T!!

Friday Feline Facts and Fill ins

Mom has a sneaking suspicion when it comes to the chairs in here.
She says I have a hidden agenda
My ears are still ringing from the last time her suspicions were sneaking.

 You would think after nearly 30 years of living with cats 
she would know it is about a feline's journey and what we find along the way
NOT the destination.



And here are the Friendly Fill-ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1. I have seen Camelot starring Robert Goulet in the mid 1960'son Broadway and it was EXCELLENT.

2. My Chinese zodiac sign is Mom:Earth Ox, Dad: Fire Monkey, Madi, Snake and lucky colors include RED________
3. Celebrities  often think everyone cares about their opinions                       .
4. A rainy day at home is better than a sunny day at work (according to mom)

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday with Angel Sammy

This will be a poem to tell you how we came to blog
Today's post is brought to you by the letter
G

Grits
aka Girls Raised in the South
by Madison D Cat
This is a recycled photo from a Wordless Wednesday



Girls from the South are often thought to be
Refined, kicking up their heels is on their minds
If caught, they might try to flee
They whine, beg and plead from jail to leave
So my friends if you find yourselves in the South remember to BEHAVE.

Cheetahs: an Endanger species

to talk about my kissin' cousins the Cheetahs the fast land animals!!


Louis asked everybuddy to take a photo with an endanger species of our choice and tell a 
little bit about that species.  On December 30, 2016 our news paper had an article titled,
Cheetahs racing toward extinction

Did you know that a century ago 100,000 cheetahs lived in the arid grasslands of Africa.
Sadly, the population of these majestic and powerful felines  is hovering around 7,100 in the wild.
Of this total 4,000 are living across six countries in southern Africa.
1,000 remain in the Serengeti plus clusters as big as 200 and as small as 10 scattered across in pockets of protected habitat. This species has been all but wiped out in Asia.  Just 50 still live in Iran.
The National Academy of Sciences and researchers are working very hard to get the cheetah conservation status raised to endangered.  Mom and I sure do hope somehow these
gorgeous felines can be protected for future generations.

Louis thank you for the most wonderful idea to write about an endanger species.
For a little white dog you sure do have a great big heart.
Hugs to you and your resident 'cheetah' Hazuzu!!
Madi a Cheetah in my own mind
