New things to enjoy

Grey cat Inquiring Minds

YOU WILL LIKE THIS

I recently decided to start posting some of my photography on DeviantArt website. The reason being they were just sitting on a hard drive not making themselves useful at all. Here’s what I’ve posted there so far at DeviantArt at https://jewelant.deviantart.com/prints/      Also on DeviantArt you can have them printed as all kinds of things such as:

 

Fine Art Prints – Fine Art Canvas Prints – Framed Fine Art Paper Prints – Framed Canvas Prints – Wrapped Canvas Prints – Photographic Prints – Greeting Cards – Mouse Pads – Ceramic Coffee Mugs – Coasters – Fridge Magnets – Postcards – Calendars

Photo dog statue with sunglasses          Photo poolside candles

Yowie Yoga Cat HiYa!Gee golly that sounded great. I knew my little printer wouldn’t keep up with all that, not to mention the time involved doing it myself. And I’m sure not set up to print on cups, magnets, coasters, and such.  I’ll have to explore a different place for T-Shirts.  They don’t do that there.  NOTE: I have only just started posting my photography, but next month will start posting my ART there too.  (possibly, see my post here on maybe why not)

So if you just want to see what all else I post on there, go on over to DeviantArt to MY page, and you can look through all of them  https://jewelant.deviantart.com/prints/

Here’s the new Gravatar. I want to thank Andrew Zhebrakov of http://www.icojam.com for letting me use the Maneki Neko icon to use in my header.  He designed the cat, and I just incorporated it into my design.  He is really very good at what he does.

Yoga Cat is Stolen and possibly Hotlinked

Yowie hangs out here in the bathtub. If he can’t get me to give him a bath,then he diddles in the water while I take one myself.

UPDATE:  Yoga Cat Yowie has found his picture stolen and posted on another website that did not ask him if it was okay to do without any link back to him and his stories.  Therefore Yoga Cat Yowie found it necessary to have his photographer make sure his photos were labeled with the copyright notice that tells people it actually is.  Those would be the people that don’t read the notice on the actual page.

In addition, Yoga Cat Yowie believes this picture to be hotlinked to.  Which is considered to be tacky and not permissible unless permission is obtained.  AND in addition to all that Yoga Cat Yowie only found this out by sheer accident searching on the wide wide web.  He is sad and totally can’t believe people are that greedy.  Personally, his photographer isn’t too surprised.

I’ll  post more on this subject, but right now that’s just the bare minimum.  Just to let you know, the website that did this was one I came upon quite accidentally, and I have sent them a take down notice.  They make a huge deal about all their photos being “public domain”, and I know mine are NOT public domain.  I own the copyright to each and every one of them.

This website is one of those duplicates that have no real subject matter, are full of pictures of furniture, and decorating, and everyone else’s photos so that they can generate loads of traffic on the backs of other peoples work.  If this keeps on I’ll probably out them on my blog, but right now I’m just waiting for them to fess up and take my picture of Yowie off their web page of “CATS IN BATHTUBS”  And they have several other websites and each one has the same page as this one.

Right now, I’ll see if they’re hotlinked since I changed the picture, it should show up on their website as the new one.

Cat Yoga For The Rest Of Us, or Yowie Cat Yoga

Cat Yoga is latest thing in cat exercise. And my cat is a Yoga cat-fool.  Yowie Cat Yoga is the way to go.

Here’s some photos of him in action on an average day.  Keep in mind,our routine to watch tv was that you had to kick the cat out of the chair each night before you could sit down to see the news. He was a SQUATTER of CHAIRS and a USURPER of THRONES.  But you gotta luv him, he’s kinda cute.

Shall We Begin?

SHORT POME
He even gloated when we passed.
He reveled in the smell of our ____________
He coated the chair with a sheen of white hair
in revenge for us moving him out of his lair.
He would scrunch, stretch, twist, and contort
Until I decided he had invented a sport.

AN ORPHAN IN THE BUSHES

My job was to trim shrubs behind a commercial building that day.  I arrived at daybreak, the sun was barely up and the night lights were still lit.  I took my first pictures of the day to record what the foliage looked like before I began to trim.

I got all my tools, the wheelbarrow, the bags, and started up the walk.  Soon I saw there was somebody keeping me company . . .

I soon saw there was somebody keeping me company

The streak of white color dissapeared behind one of the rose bushes up against the building and I realized that it was a kitten. I got down on my knees to peer under the bush he was hiding in and stretched out my hand and called him.

He was a wild baby kitty, but not totally.  (Somebody had been feeding him at lunchtime.)  I ran back to the car and got part of my sandwich (the meat part), and ran back to feed him.  He ate it all, even a french fry.

He watched with suspicious curiosity

I started walking around to see what needed to be done to the flower beds.  The kitten watched all this with suspicious curiosity. Getting food every few minutes had him soon following me around asking for more.

He soon started following me around

I wasn’t surprised.  He had no Mommy anywhere that I could see.  I found out later a mother cat had been seen carrying him across the parking lot and dropped him off there never to return.  He was an ORPHAN BABY KITTYKAT.

He was starving …

He was starving, and looked better than he was because he was a long haired kitten, and the fur disguised the ribbyness of his tiny little body.

I could tell he was a Purrson of importance

But his personality told me he was a purrson of importance, sooo. . .    He came home in a cardboard box when I left the job two days later.

My other cat was not so sure about this newcomer

My other cat was not so sure about this newcomer.  He hissed a lot, and spit a lot, and cussed a lot.  Then he just left the room disgusted.

I put him in a cage for his own safety

I put him in another room in a cage so that the big guy wouldn’t eat him.  A time out was needed before it was discovered that he was really a friend and not an intruder.

At first, curiosity at a distance

He was allowed out only under supervision and then recaged at night.  More and more freedom as he was accepted.  At first it was just curiosity from a safe distance.  But in the end, after a few weeks, they became more and more friends . . .

yowieanddickylast

In the end they became friends

After a week of the big cat being pounced on, and the little cat getting smashed on, and a bunch of spats, there was a truce.  But in the end they got their act together and became companionable friends.
