App... App...Appropriate Gifts!

Blogging two days in a row is unheard of around Casa CATachresis!! But we make an exception today as The Staff (who is a very sad wannabe-but-never-quite-making-it techno geek/nerd/bore) has found another app that she likes. This one is called VEE and does videos which she can edit (easy peasily) and upload to YouTube from her iphone!! Here is her first offering and of course the quality is questionable, but the subject matter is iconic! 

The more observant among you might have seen most of the clips before (instagram or facebook), but now there is suitable music and they are stuck together. There is even slow-mo!! 


             
What I am playing with is an early Christmas present from my very good friend, Katie Isabella. She sent me a package and there were goodies!!!!





I especially love Mr Turtle!

Her lovely Momma sent The Staff this beautiful window hanging:




What a couple of sweet kitties! 

Thank you Katie and Mommy!

AND that's not all! I have even been immortalised in a Christmas bauble!! 
This is from my good friend Miss Pix


The light reflected off the glitter, so the photo doesn't do it justice, but you can see my green eyes and my tux and white toesies!
The Austin glitter ball came from Mollie and Alfie's Etsy shop! Go visit!

Thank you Miss Pix

  1. WOW! You sure got some nice things! Hey, that app sounds cool. We don't do many videos cause it is always complicated.

  2. Yes, have seen you playing with Mr. Turtle and no doubt about it that you LOVE him! The videeohhh and music is great... just not long enough ;) Wall hanging is so pretty. Could watch Mr. Austin for-evah! But tis the season and should be appreciative for what we have today. I am going to check out your videeohhh app. Maybe could use with Sailor but she is a blur. Austin is caught in his own private blizzard... LOL! Mollie and Alfie did a great job on the baubles! I think Stella is still bauble-ing! You are very very welcome, Mr. Austin!

  4. PROF. AUSTIN COMPARED TO MY STAFF YOUR STAFF IS QUITE AN ADVANCED TECHIE....WHY YOU ASK...WELL I'LL TELL YOU. First sit down. My staff still uses a flip phone. YEP you read it right a F L I P phone. It does nothing except ring and it doesn't do that very often. I can see that you got your professorial smarts from your staff.

  32. Wow, you already got some Christmas presents?? We thought you English cats were even one day behind us other European cats?

    That being said, we don't think we'll get any Christmas presents. Mom said the best present is that we're celebrating together this year. Whilst this is true, we wouldn't mind some additional gifts??

    We've travelled to Germany again. so we're counting on Grandpa.
