Caturday Art with Miss Fitz

Happy Caturday Friends! I always enjoy supurrting a fellow female feline and when you get to support a Goddess like Athena, well, this kitty was ecstatic! This is my original Tail Poof from the day Toby got out of line

I used LunaPic Abstract Art, Picasso and Beauty. I then added an Organic Frame at PiZap and finished up with a PaintShop Picture Frame that I tweaked to my color, Fuchsia.
Hope you like it. I do and so does Beau Toby

1. Life and what comes after is a mystery I would love to know the answer to. Being spiritual I do believe I will have this answer someday as we all will. No rush.
2. I am not sure if Brazil or England is the farthest I have ever been from home. Both were great trips. I have been to a lot of America too. Ahh I miss traveling.
3. I’ve lost count of how many times every day the fur family makes me smile.
4. Rumpy Bump reminds me of my youth. A bit brash, adventurous and a bit naughty but  always up for fun with a smile for everyone. Hey, wonders, I am still here! Ha

Thankful Einstein

Hi Friends. It was Angel Stinkers Birthday yesterday and today is both Angel  Buttons and Angel Ambers Gotcha  Days. That got me  thinking of years past and this is a picture of me at about 6 months old. When you are a youngster you really don't think of much except fun but goodness I was a lucky little fellow. Today I am really Thankful that we all found a home with Dad and have it really nice. Our family is Thankful for being safe, that Dad is getting close to getting his vaccination and for you stopping by.

We are joining Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. We hope to see your Thankfuls too. Have a wonderful day friends.

Friday with Fitz: Bored

I am so very bored

Really? Kitty Whip!
I am going to show you who's boss

You are caught and next comes...
Yeah, whut can you do to Kitty Whip

Bitey!
Nooooo

BITEY!
Argh! *deaded*

I am so very bored... I know!

Lets do the Friendly Fill-Ins Hop from 15 and Meowing and Four Legged Furballs. I am doing the first two and Timmy the last two.
1. I learned Having a Home the hard way. I resisted all efforts to find me a home and finally, instead of handing me off to another rescuer, Dad said I was a "Failed Foster" and adopted me. It took some years for me to know just how lucky I was.
2. Everyone should Cuddle at least once in their lives. Strange right, another something it took me a long time to know about, but after a few years there I was cuddling with Dad. 
3. Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about Summer. This winter is just so weird I want it over and to sit outside in the sun all day long.
4. I’ll never be too old to Run, Jump and Play. I don't zoom like I used to but I do. I like to jump to high places and play at least once a day. I may be bit slower and sleep more but I enjoy life every day and that is what is important.

Timmy's FSP Redux Thankful

Last week Brian meowed about his FSP, Feline Sensory Perception, and how that helped him know what his Dad was thinking. My first FSP is that you are thinking "what is that picture of Timmy opening his cabinet doing in this Thankful?" Hold on, let me explain. 

This is me in December helping trim our tree. I like our tree but as you can see the skirt covers my cabinet. I said that was alright as, I mean, its not like I am treat deprived or anything. Anyhoo, last Friday, right after we read about FSP, Dad looked over as I walked in front of the skirt and thought "Gee, Timmy can't get to his treat door. I better put things away so he can."

As soon as he had that thought, Zip, I was under the skirt pulling my door Open-Says-a-Me! Yep, the FSP part is I had not once tried to open my door until Dad sent me that message. I am so Thankful for our FSP connection. And for my family and all our friends. 

Lets all join Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I can't wait to see what you are Thankful for this week

Rump Day: Dads New Book


Welcome to the very first Rump Day. I was going to call it Rhump Day or R-Hump Day but figured if you read our blog you should have, as our pal Hercule Cat used to say, "little gray cells." I showed you this before and promised to let you know what meows. 

Dad bought himself a gift "Alfie the Christmas Cat" by Rachel Wells. I say he needs another book like he needs another cat. Buy treats will ya. Anymeow we are not sure how often I will be up to Rump Day but its a new year, you never know. 
OK Dad. Fine. Treats, Now!

We are joining Comedy Plus for Wordless Wednesday. Yeah like I will ever quiet down, Ha

Sunday Selfie with Einstein

Sorry friends I know it is time for my Selfie but I got carried away as Dad was putting a fresh mousie on the stick. It seems I grabbed mousie before he was hooked up but I will let him go soon. And, no, it was not me who left the real mousie in the hall. Hey, this is a nice Selfie don't you think?

We really enjoy The Cat on My Head Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. Will we see your Selfie today? We sure hope so

We were saddened this week to learn that sweet Zoey of The Island Cats was suddenly called home over the Rainbow Bridge on Wednesday. She had been ill but this was very unexpected. Please visit and give support to Ernie and her family.

Caturday Art: Rumpy

I have no idea why they asked me to be our Artsy Type Kitty today. When I play with art effects I either disappear into a glob or there is nada, zip, zilch, but alright, I will give it a go.

Whoa I like this! I can be Toby for a day, you know, Panfur around the house like a ghost. Yeah, I like this, I can sneak up on... *Bang, Crash* curses, I am still the bumping Rumpy

Come on, it's fun, it's crazy, it's the Caturday Art Blog Hop with Athena Cat Goddess! Hope to see you there!

Friday with Fitz: Tail Poof

Toby! Toby! Where did you go?

That Cat just made my tail POOF! I chased him until I lost him in the kitchen

There you are. Explain yourself you Mangy Man Cat

But sweetie I didn't do Anything. You just suddenly chased me like a crazy cat. My heart is pounding

Well that's for all the times you Did Something and weren't caught. But I never... Toby, Hush! It's Fill-In Time. *Sigh*

We are joining 15 and Meowing and Four-Legged Furballs for Friendly Fill-Ins. Hope you do too. Toby to make up why don't you do the first two and I will do the second two.
1. I hope Our home never changes. I really love my family and Dad takes such good care of us.
2. The luckiest I have ever been was Not Today. My gal is really pretty sweet most days but when she gets in a snit, lookout.
3. I never thought I would Cuddle, but I did. And do, I was very "hands off" until I was about 6. In the bedroom last night Dad reached out and scratched my ears. He said "A few years ago that would never have happened." Yep, I would have been outa-there
4. I’m waiting for the world to go back to normal. I mean I could care less but it would be nice for Dad.

We are joining Comedy Plus for Feline Friday. You should too, don't make me raise my Whapping paw

In Purrsuit of Flavors: Simple Sauces

Today we are joining our friends at The Canadian Cats and Easy Blog for In Purrsuit of Flavors: Simple Sauces

This recipe come from our resident Chef at Cat Scouts, Pete H. He was really busy this holiday season with our North Pole Trip and Christmas and Mew Years. He is glad this is just something fast and tasty. 

Creamy Mushroom Sauce  I have used this on chicken, Hamburgers Steak and Pork This creamy mushroom sauce is quick and easy to prepare and goes with anything!

Ingredients:

½ small onion diced
1 tablespoon butter
12 ounces mushrooms brown or white, sliced
salt and ground pepper to taste
2 cloves garlic minced
3 sprigs fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
½ cup white wine
½ cup chicken broth
⅔ cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon cornstarch
3 tablespoons fresh parsley

Directions:
1. Saute onion in butter until softened, about 3-5 minutes.
2. Add mushrooms, salt, and pepper. Cook until mushrooms have released juices. Add garlic and thyme and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
3.Add the wine to deglaze and loosen any bits off the pan and simmer a few minutes until the wine has almost evaporated.
4.Add the chicken broth and cream. Simmer for 5 minutes or until reduced by half.
5. To thicken the sauce further, combine cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water (or broth) and mix well. Add cornstarch mixture into the broth a little bit at a time to reach desired consistency. You may not need all of the cornstarch mixture.
6. Let simmer 1 minute.
7. Season with parsley, salt and pepper to taste.
