Run for the Roses #Caturday Art

Meows from Mudpie, and Happy Derby Day!

Do you plan to watch the Kentucky Derby today? We will be even though Mommy watches horse races with one eye closed. She says NASCAR is her sport of choice because when the drivers crash they aren't destroyed like the poor horses are when they fall. She loves the Triple Crown races though - they're really all she watches - and she's so thankful she got to see a Triple Crown achieved in her lifetime just 3 short years ago. We hope it happens again, but more than anything we just hope for a safe race.

For my Caturday Art project this week I decided to wrap myself in a garland of roses just like the winning horse will receive. I may never run in the Kentucky Derby - I'm too old at this point anyway - but I bet I would be fast enough to give those horses a run for their money!

Oh, Mudpie, how gorgeous you look! This here human can't bring herself to watch horse races. The fear that one of the horses might fall is a bit too overwhelming. But we hope you two enjoy it!
