The Caturday Art Phantom Strikes?

Is this weird, or what?
I was playing around with a toy
The human clicked the shutter
But I look like a ghostly boy!

It really does look spooky,
My legs and tail are spectral!
My head is indeterminate
And my ears are ineffectual.

The art is in the movement;
And not afterwards in the editing.
So the human added nothing,
So to her I'll not be crediting!

She only clicked the shutter.
And that demands no skill.
I moved faster than the speed of light
And it gave me quite a thrill.

So to all you kitties out there,
Get moving! Quick! Look smart!
The humans are now superfluous,
When it comes to Caturday Art!

We are very sad to learn that sweet Lucy from 15 and Meowing has had to leave for the Bridge. Her family are understandably very upset, so if you can please go and visit and share some comforting words. xxx

  16. OMC! It looks like your paw is bloodied from something you killed! Love the action shot although I don’t love it when TW’s photos turn out like that. Now she’ll be telling me they’re art.
