Run for the Roses #CaturdayArt

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 still can't believe after fearing she'd never witness a Triple Crown in her lifetime that it has happened twice in the last four years! More than anything we just pray for a safe race each year. The horses' lives are more important than any trophy.

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!

I love, love, love your art!!! The colour, the way the flowers frame you, I love it!
I'm taking it to put in my folder of favourite cat pictures (personal use only.)

Mudpie, I'm sure you would give them horses a run for their money! I worry about them too, but watch it anyway. Your art is spectacular today!

My human worries about the horses being injured too.

You look very pretty surrounded by roses, Mudpie. The Derby was a bit disappointing this year because of the disqualification.

Mudpie, we love your art today. LOVE!

Our mom and dad don't watch horse races, because they worry a lot about the horses getting hurt.

That picture is absolutely beautiful! Love it!
We don't watch anything that could be construed as sports, and that includes racing, ;)

Beautiful art. We think horse racing is barbaric and won't watch it. I saw on Twitter that even the horses cheat now. What a world!

This is a purrfect masterpiece for spring, Mudpie. You are gorgeous! And I don't think I'd ever be able to make it through the Kentucky Derby. I worry so much for the horses, and I would be a nervous wreck. Purrs!
