DANI'S COMEDY CATSAWAY!

Dani has just finished arranging the lineup for today's event.  Usually, she's a proCATStinator, but is starting to realize that sooner is better.

Of course, Dani has given herself the first two slots; followed by June of Zoolatry with another double.  Simon and Kiki of Brian's Home take fifth and sixth with some thoughts on pumpkins.  Our newest additions include Mudpie of Mochasmysteriesandmeows and Tuffy of 15andMeowing who slide into seventh and eighth with their own unique take on things.

There is a bonus slot, saved for last, because it is quite an oldie, with lots of sentiment attached.  You will likely recognize its provenance.

So while the time is ripe, let Cats Away ...

AWWW MONDAY WITH DANI: TOE LICKING GOOD!

 Dani's indulging in some of the best KFC ever made -- Kitty Foot Chicken, that is.

Toe Lickin' Good?

Slurp!


Not exactly good etiCAT, is it?



Dani says:  "Well, if itz good, an' itz et by a cat, dat means itz 'Good Eticat', doan yoo fink? Nom, nom, nom."





And when she was finished, instead of using a napkin, 
Dani just took a nap!


Maybe this will put her in her place ...

... No placemat, no napkins ... no napping!

SUNDAY SELFIE WITH DANI: THE LAST STRAW

I told Dani she really had to upgrade her photography skills, so she begged me for another chance.  Of course I said "why not?".  Silly me.

Dani said:  "I wonts ta dress up fur dis photo-hoot an' make it reely speshul (hoot-hoot!).  Itz end of da seeson fur straw hats, so I fawt I wud ware wun in fall colors just ta be purrverse."

Purrverse is Dani's purrsonal style.


So this time Dani used a wireless mouse to control her iPhone 14 Pro.

"Is click bait fur me!" she says purrversely.

And you have the results, above.  It's not a bad picture really.  Her mouth is mostly closed and her mouse is staring wide-eyed at the phone's camera.  Unfortunately, though Dani may have her eyes open, we can't see them!

Her hat slipped down and because she was holding the mouse she couldn't push it back before the click bait clicked.

I guess we just have to chalk this one up to a "wardrobe malfunction".  I can't help but think the malfunction originates from Dani's brain, but the PR peeps want us to spin it in another direction.

What do you think?


At least Dani's mouse is on her toes!

CATURDAY ART WITH DANI: MEWSING

 Dani is quietly mewsing on the meaning of life today.  She has closed her eyes to concentrate, because she doesn't want to be overly stimulated or distracted.

It is also a time of self-reflection, as you can see immediately below: 



Original using Fotosrus Portrait Filter
and Photoscape Reflection Filter


Then Dani went through all of the pawsibilities in her mind and fantasized what it would be like if she were diffurent.


Pixala App Fall Filter + Fotosrus Light Pen
Dark and Brooding




Fotosrus Summer Filter + Light Pen
Light and Luminous





Fotorus Object Filter + Fantasy Frame Lights

Bright and Bold




Pixala App, Fractal Filter
Fragile and Fractional




Still undecided.
MeOmmmmm!


These things take time.

DANI'S COMEDY CREW

 Dani's on overload today when it comes to her comedy crew.  But all that means is it's a longer cruise!

Dani starts things off as purr usual, in the first two spots.  Then comes Angels Dylan and Dante panting for attention.  Our regular purrformer, June of Zoolatry does double duty before Brian and Simon of Brian's Home do their own thing.

Finally, we have Mudpie of Melissa's Mochas, Mysteries and Meows and Emmy of 15andMeowing bringing it home at last.

We hope you like our extended version and that you'll get a couple more giggles or at least an extra smile or two.

We're off ...

AWWW MONDAY WITH DANI: I BELEAVES IN AUTUMN

Dani is fascinated by the autumn leaves.



"So I made a fascinator outta dem" says Dani. 
 "Leaves give me a heads up on Fall.
An' if my heads up, I kin see ware dey land."



"I also likes uddah symbols a' Fall, like punkins an' GNOMES."

"O dear, the cat let it out of the bag. 
 And we were hoping to remain an-GNOMEY-mous!"
We should give her a 'What Four'" say the four of them in unison.

Beyond Beleaf!

SUNDAY SELFIE WITH DANI: DO-IT-YOURSELFIE

Another Sunday, another episode in selfie-destruction.

This time Dani asked me to hold my camera, and she would press the button with the end of her stick.  

When it didn't happen quite as she envisioned, her tempurr flared and made the outcome even worse.

At the very least this picture isn't as bad as last week's.  She still has her mouth open, though.  I think she underestimated her hunting instinct because the urge to chomp was uncontrollable.

If you look at it in a pawsitive way, you could say Dani has a 'flare' for photography.  And she has always been a 'stickler' for punishment.

So, once again, the outcome is purely a statement of Dani's purrsonality.  Isn't that every photographer's ultimate goal?

P.S.  An afterthought:

Do not encourage Dani because now she's giving photography lessons!

CATURDAY ART WITH DANI: ILLUSION AND REALITY

This week I have done everything on Photoscape, from adding the frames to creating the effects using various filters.

It's a bit different because Dani is just a blur of fur from start to finish.  She was playing with some random grass and other green detritus.  And, absolutely no posing was done in the making of this photo which makes it all the more real.

Illusion


So, at least Dani had fun rolling around on the walkway and inhaling green stuff.  Who knows maybe some of it was actual catnip.  The ones on the left look kind of like mint which is all part of the family when it comes to ye olde catnipee.



Dani, herself, has no illusions at all.
"If yoo doan has illooshuns, yoo kin nevah be disillooshunned" says she.

What a realistic reproach!
