It was a very warm day yesterday and Mum was complaining because she wants Autumn to feel like autumn! As you all know by now she is not a summery person and feels more at ease in fall and winter clothing. Lots of layers to feel safe and comfy in and boots, not sandals! And she's bought a new coat and wants to wear it
She complains that she never knows what to wear and I'm so glad I'm not human, I can tell you! I wear the same outfit every day, come rain or shine!😻
Friendly Fill-InsMarie1. I have a sieve for a brain - I am getting very forgetful these days. 2. Cats make me happy. 3. I’m surprised that it's so warm right now in England. Last night was really mild for October and I woke up sweating. 4. To make a long story short (or to cut), I lost my mind - I have this song in my head, from my teenage years and one of my fave bands from that era - Spandau Ballet. Could be the story of my life really.
Athena1. I have so much sympathy for my mum as it seems so tough to be human. 2. Mum giving me treats and cuddles make me happy. 3. I'm surprised that Mum's books aren't a success as she is a good writer! 4. To make a long story short, cats rule.

Happy Caturday! It's a busy week for Mum so she did this quick art using PicMonkey.
Then she went to LunaPic and did this with the Quirky Art filter

Athena 1. My favourite font is Brush Script which is what we use for my logo 2. October is perfect for snuggling with Mum. 3. Where I live, we have a woods nearby. It has always been my mum's dream to live near a forest. Now she has a beautiful view of the woods from her bedroom window where she does most of her writing. I hope this means she will be writing more books! 4. I feel very comfortable this time of year because it's not hot and it's not cold either.
Marie 1. My favourite font is anything that looks elegant and classic. Great Vibes is a good one which I use for my Purrs Full of Love blog. 2. October is perfect for getting cosy. 3. Where I live, I at last have the peace and quiet I longed for and beautiful nature on our doorstep. I lived in North London all my life (decades) and really wanted to escape and now I have just done that! Essex is just beautiful. I hope it stays that way. 4. I feel very much more settled this time of year. I am not as stressed as I am in summer. I don't like summer at all. Autumn and winter are my favourite seasons. After Christmas, I start getting panicky about spring and summer. I suppose it's Summer SAD reversed.

Mum loves purple and she wanted a purple-themed Caturday Art post today. First, she tinted my photo purple in PicMonkey...
and then decided she wanted to enhance my beautiful eyes and so she turned them bright green. Then she left PicMonkey and went to PizAp where she found this lovely Halloween frame that matched purrfectly!

Mum read to me this fantastic new book by our blogging pal Ellen Pilch of 15andmeowing.
Prancie's Prayer is a sweet warm-hearted book for children loosely based on the story of how dear cat Prancie came to live with Ellen and the meowing household.
I loved this book. And so did Mum. Not only is the story captivating and well-told but the illustrations by Nicolas Peruzzo are also amazing to look at and these will no doubt enchant any child for hours on end.
We bought the ebook on Kindle (after Mum saw the email from Ellen who kindly sent us a digital copy of the book). Mum thanked her but she doesn't mind that she purchased it on Kindle because she loves the book and also loves helping out fellow authors. It's really hard work being an author and the support from others is always greatly appreciated.
For the most excellent Christmas gift for a child, we recommend the paperback version as children will delight in reading and re-reading the book while flicking through the pages to admire the wonderful images. At the same time, they will learn the true meaning of Christmas.
Athena's answers 1. An extra treat or two will always be welcome! 2. The best time of the day is naptime. 3. Being left alone in the house is not my strong suit. 4. It's all fun and games until Mum stops playing with me.
1. A glass of wine will never make me merry. It just makes me want more and more until I get even more miserable than I was before I drank it.
2. The best time of the day is nighttime when I can snuggle up with Athena in bed.
3. Patience is not my strong suit. But that's because I'm getting old and still haven't had a normal life. So many things I want to achieve but I know time is running out.

It's all very well making me scary and weird for Caturday Art, Mum, but next time it's your turn to get the Halloween art treatment!
The only thing I like about this is my fierce demonic eyes!
