Welcome back to day 4 of the Cat Lovers Hop! I can’t believe it’s flying by so quickly!
Today I have a purrfect inside-out Thank You card with these cute kitties from Art Impressions and some pieces from Graphic 45, two of our generous sponsors:
(Sorry, some day I will learn to resize my images for optimal uploading without losing resolution. sigh) And here’s the inside :
Art Impressions these cute little kitties so that they can be put together front and back. I cut under their paws before putting them together so they would stack better.
Can you tell they’re from the same litter? They remind me of the two hanging out on the Cat Town mug below:

For today’s funnies, I thought I’d give a nod to those who are both SciFi & Cat Lovers:
Anyone remember Data’s genius ‘Ode to Spot’?
Felis Catus -is your taxonomic nomenclature
An endothermic quadruped, carniverous by nature?
Your visual, olfactory, and auditory senses
Contribute to your hunting skills and natural defenses.
I find myself intrigued by your sub-vocal oscillations –
A singular development of cat communications
That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection
For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.
A tail is quite essential for your acrobatic talents –
You would not be so agile if you lacked its counterbalance.
And when not being utilized to aid in locomotion,
It often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.
Oh, Spot, the complex levels of behavior you display
Denote a fairly well developed cognitive array.
And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend…
I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend!
For those of you who prefer more recent SciFi kitty refs:
DrWhoWithCats did a great job of photoshopping T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats into River Song’s hand! Although I’m fonder of the older cover – probably because they’re a cool stack of cats in hats:
Ok, I’ve rambled on so much that most of you now wish you had a time machine to go back and recapture the 5 minutes of your life that you just lost with this nonsense! I’ll probably be back later today with a second card.
Live long and pawspurr!
