Hunky Mancat Rusty

Cyndi:  Well, it's hard to believe but we're going to have to order that fire ant alarm for Jan.  She's one expensive human!

Cameron:  Did we ever check to see if one has been invented yet?  Well, as soon as we finish this post, we need to visit to see if Amazon sells one.

Micah:  As you can guess. Jan was attacked again this evening.  Three times in less than 2 weeks.  No visible fire ant mound, no warning.

Sam:  She gave Buddy a bath with no problem.  She was bathing me when she started dancing and yelling. Then she shoved the hose down one shoe, then the other.  They didn't bother me but that might be because Jan drowned them before they reached me.  She sure did squish when she walked after that.

Rusty:  This is an old photo of me.  Jan turned it sepia for today.  I might look like I'm sleeping sitting up but don't be fooled.  I was actually ... well, I guess I was actually sleeping. 

Merci:  This is the original.  Yep, Rusty was sleeping on the job.  He was supposed to be posing as a hunky mancat.  How about it ladycats, does Rusty look hunky when he sleeps?

Marcus:  This is tomorrow's black and white photo.  We're adding it out of order for a reason.  We have no idea what the reason is, but Jan said we should so we'll try it her way.


Buddy:  This is the reason.  For Caturday Art, Jan turned the black and white version into an old photo with the lines and creases.  Then she layered it onto the sepia version and then onto the black and white.  We're not sure what that makes this but we have to admit, it is different.  It's kind of growing on us.

Percy:  I certainly hope it is not growing on us, Buddy.  I can handle it at arm's length, but up close, it might be contagious, or worse, fatal.  Oh, you meant we're starting to like it?  True, but if you stare at it too long, you can actually see Rusty's head begin to bob as he nods off.

  1. FIRE ANTS??? Do they set things on fire? I've never seen those but we have little teeny tiny ants around here...they're too small to even pat. Oh, and I like Rusty's photo...he's not sleeping, he's deep in thought!

  2. Man, my mom has had a few fire ant attacks but of all places, in the city of Charlotte in NC. Not in the center city, i the suburbs. Ain't NO fun! are so stop- in- your- tracks- and- stare, handsome!!!

  3. Fire ants - just those two words make mom's skin crawl! Haven't seen those in our neck of the woods in a long time!

  4. Love the art! Our Mom was attacked by fire ants and ended up in ICU. Usually if they get you twice you get an allergy to them and the third time is much worse.

  5. Ouch ouch fire ants ! We hope Jan finds something to get rid of it ! Purrs

  6. OMD Not ANOTHER attack of the Biting Stinging FIRE ANTS... Poor Jan she just can't catch a break.
    The only GOOD news is that it will soon be cold weather and they will be gone.. WE HOPE.

  7. Any type of ant will get my mum screaming!

    Love the pics :)

    Purrs xx

  9. We'd never heard of Fire Ants until today but we gather from their name that they bite and you feel you are on fire. We hope Jan will soon be less sore.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  10. We had never heard of fire ants either,but they sound really awful.

  11. Good thing your mom had the hose going. Yikes!

    Thats a fun effect on Rusty. Sleeping? Thinking? Who knows, only Rusty, MOL!

  12. Oh no!! We are sorry that Jan got attacked by fire ants!! We've been having wasp problems.

    Rusty is so cute! <3

  13. No fire ants around here but mom got stung by a wasp this week and her face swelled up. She looked like a character from Star Trek. She still is puffy under the eyes.

  14. Nice art! We don't have fire ants here, just those annoying black ants - they already invaded my dinner once! I hear that my human hired someone to get rid of them, but they still aren't gone completely.

  15. Many artists are misunderstood!
