THE CAT LOVERS' BLOG HOP - DAY 5


Good morning Peeps,
I am getting in pretty early today with my creation for DAY 5 of THE CAT LOVERS' BLOG HOP, but first.... some funnies :-D...

This just makes me laugh because it's what my dog does to my cats :-D ..........


I laughed so much with this.... my daughter hates and detests Crocs and she said if I buy any more, she will have to come over and kill me LoL.....


This is pure cat humour..........


Translated :

" You say the dog disappeared ? "
"Bwaahahahaa"
" Hahahahahaha - I'm sorry human "
" Hahahaha - Ok, really...... I'm very sad "

And now - my piece for today. 
This is card made from a portrait I painted of my cat from many years ago. He was called Grizwald and just loved going in the car. He would sit on the back shelf like a nodding dog. Sometimes he would run along the fence and jump on top of the car after I had gotten in. On day he did this, without me knowing,  and I drove out of the drive and half a mile down the road without knowing he was there. I stopped at some traffice lights and he gently slid down the windscreen !!!! I had to take him to my baby's doctor's appointment hahahaha LoL. :-D   One crayyyyzeeee cat !!! :-D


I used to paint pet portraits as a small part-time business in the UK but unfortunately, here in Greece, there is no call for pet pikkies - they don't have the same relationship with animals :-(

So, there we are. This has been a delightful Hop and I have enjoyed seeing all the fabulous creations and meeting new people.
I got so inspired by this that I am thinking of starting a Challenge Blog just for Cats and Cat lovers........ what do you think ????? Would it be popular ?????

Hugz and thanks for dropping in.

The Hop is being hosted by Janis over at HER PEACEFUL GARDEN and you can join in the Hop HERE.  Come on - break out your Kitties and come along to play.... or just Hop and look at other people's kitties :-D xxxxxxxxxxx


Challenges I am entering:

  8. Wow! Griswald is so realistic that I'd better not let my dog, Toby, see him or he'd give chase!! What a beautiful rendering of your old pet cat. He must have been quite a beauty. I love his expression with with that intent gaze. You are so right about different cultures having their own ideas about pets. My pets have always been like family, although I do draw the line at buying them Christmas and birthday presents, haha! As for those cat memes, oh my gosh! I let out a burst of laughter when I saw that cat in Crocs and my husband called out from the other room to see what I was going on about. When I told him it was an hilarious photo of a cat in bright colored Crocs, there was just silence in return. I guess he's not going to begging me to show the photo to him...his loss!!!

  11. I TOTALLY LOVE the idea of a Cat Challenge!!! I am so very honored that this cat hop inspired you to think of doing that. I also thought something like that would be super-fun but I just don't have the time to invest into starting one up. I would definitely LOVE to participate in one, though. I think it would be very popular. I have been overjoyed with the response from everyone for this hop. I have lots of kitty stamps that I didn't get to use on this hop that haven't seen ink for a very long time.

    Your Grizwald is gorgeous! I adore your portrait.....so amazingly realistic! What a hilarious story, too. Loved your cat memes, too. lol... Thanks so much for linking up with us at the Cat Lovers Hop!!!!
