Caturday Art: Sneaky Truffles & Shaky Leg

My birthday is on Monday and Truffles is definitely up to something. At various times this week she's been pounding away at the computer and the minute I come in the room she turns away trying to look innocent. (She looks guilty, doesn't she?) Stay tuned.


For our entry in Athena's Caturday Art blog hop and the Photohunt theme of "gray", we ran the picture through Pho.to's Graphite Pencil Sketch filter:


One more thing...regular blog readers know that I am a huge NASCAR fan and that Kevin Harvick is my favorite driver. On Sunday night while Kevin was leading the race something happened on the track that could easily have had me shopping for a new driver this week if things had turned out differently:


We spent the rest of the race worried about the little guy and were quite disturbed at how funny the announcers found the situation to be. As the week went on the mystery was finally solved as Atlanta Motor Speedway announced on their Facebook page that the cat is Shaky Leg, and he lives behind their ticket office. Why on earth they don't contain him on race days I will never understand but at least he's safe:

  1. We saw that! It scared us half to death! Why on earth don't they restrain him on race days???
    Glad it turned out well.

    We can't wait to see what Truffles is up to!
    Happy Caturday!

  9. OMC, we cannot believe that kitty is allowed to run loose. With the speed those drivers are going, we cannot believe he hasn't been killed. We do love your pencil sketch. Mom thinks the pencil sketches, whether in color or black and white, are her favorites. Hope you will join us for our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop.

  15. Hmmm what could you be up to, Truffles?! Love your pencil sketch - very cool. Glad Shaky Leg is okay! They really should contain him. Very dangerous.
