Caturday Art

Meows from Mudpie!

Our Caturday Art project this week isn't something we created, but something we found on Facebook (surprise,surprise!) Our friend Christine Davis (author of a book called For Every Cat an Angel which Mommy has had on her bookshelf for many, many years) posted it and wrote a little story to go along with it.

We don't know which is more beautiful, the artwork or the story, but we knew we had to share it. Mommy just can't get over how much the kitty looks like Angel Truffles. She only wishes she knew who the artist is because she'd love to buy a print of it. If anyone knows, please tell us!

And now our weekly answers (answered by Mommy) for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, hosted by 15andmeowing and McGuffy's Reader!

1. I have broken no bones. Although last spring I fell down my neighbor's garage steps while cat-sitting and came darn close to breaking my ankle.

2. When I go out to breakfast, I order pancakes. They've always been one of my favorite foods and since I rarely go out for breakfast I've started making them at home again.

3. As Summer officially comes to an end, I say good riddance and don't feel the need to return anytime soon :)

4. Before this year is over, I really need to find a new dentist. The one I'd been seeing since I was a kid retired a few years ago and I really, really dislike the dentist who bought his practice. I've avoided going for awhile because of that so I need to find a replacement.

  1. My human wishes she knew who the artist was too!

  2. What a beautiful, powerful piece of art this is. And this kitty really does look so much like your sweet Angel Truffles.

    It's amazing how our fill-ins are so often so similar! I love pancakes, but these days I can't eat gluten, and I have yet to find a gluten-free pancake that I really like. And I say good riddance to summer, too. Unfortunately, we're back up to 90-degree days. Bring on autumn! And you know, I actually had typed out my answer to #4 as my needing to go to the dentist (I really don't enjoy going to the dentist and have let myself fall a bit behind), but changed it last minute. We really do think so much alike!

  3. Oh, this is such a speaking picture without words and we agree too, it looks like Angel Truffles...very touching :) Glad you were lucky on the stairs! Pawkisses for an Arty Caturday :) <3

  4. That is a beautiful picture and story. I have felt just like that before--like a pet who has gone to bridge comes to visit while I'm sleeping. It is important to have a dentist you like, because you don't want someone you don't like and trust poking around in your mouth. :)

  5. That is beautiful, it made me cry.Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. Especially #3, we think so much alike :) Good luck finding a dentist, that can be tough. Have you checked reviews on Angie's list? Have a nice weekend! XO

  6. That is so beautiful and so moving.

    Mum doesn't like her new dentist either and has avoided booking an appointment even though one of her teeth is bothering her.

  8. When I first saw the art, I thought it was MP. I thought either someone has painted her or you found an amazing template on the web to put her in.

  9. The art is fabulous, and we adore the little story your friend wrote to go with it. It really touched Mom's heart. Melissa, you are so fortunate to never have broken any bones. Hope it remains that way forever. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

  10. Agreed. I love this. It says so much, doesn't it? Thanks for joining our Friendly Fill-Ins this week. It is always nice to learn more about each other. Hugs!

  11. Oh that is soooooo beautiful. That was the verse to make anyone cry. We all love to be told that someone has "got us now", that we are loved even though they are not right here.

  12. If you were in Metro Detroit, I'd heartily recommend my dentist! I found that image on FB too...speaks volumes! Am I the only person who orders oatmeal?
