  2. I got my camera!  WOOT!   For anyone who is interested, I am now using a Canon PowerShot SX700 HS camera.  Now I’m off to read my owner’s manual and start taking some new shots of the fur babies!  Watch this space!  Great things are coming!

  3. Taking Some Time Off…

    Hey everyone!  Spring has sprung and I am stuck with a broken camera.  Boo!  My new, replacement camera is set to arrive on/around April 15th though!  Until then, I am going to take a break from posting here.  See you in a couple of weeks!   I can’t wait to start taking new shots again, get inspired to write more poetry,  and share it all with you here!  Until then (and any time really), if you need to get your kitty fix or just see what I am up to, you can find me taking random shots with my iPad and posting them to my Instagram account here:  http://instagram.com/tofufairy !  Hope to see you there!  Take care!  

    XOXO

  4. The Magic Green Blanket

    Do your cats have a favorite blanket that draws them to your bed like a magnet?  One you have to fight them for, so you can use it yourself, or one that, if you are using it, equals a lap full of fur for you?  LOL  Mine is this green blanket that I won years ago via a giveaway I entered on a blog I follow.  It is super soft and made out of 100% post-consumer recycled plastic that was spun into a polyester microfiber.  My husband and I love it, but I think the cats love it even more (as these photos show!)!  LOL  

    Tell me about your cat’s fav spot to snooze in the comments below!

    PS:  These shots are from my personal Instagram account and have a filter on them.  To me that is pretty obvious, but I just wanted to be honest here, as I take pride in the fact that I don’t normally use a filter for my work (unless it is a blatant effect like the post I did here: http://poeticpussycats.tumblr.com/post/78848569833/marilyn-as-art).  I just thought these were fun enough to share!  I hope you agree!  

    XOXO

  5. RIP SunSpun Mei-Ling

    Yesterday was a very sad day in my household.  Our oldest fur baby, SunSpun Mei-Ling, moved on to the next phase in her life cycle.  We adopted her in April of 1994, so she was a part of our lives for basically 20 years.  She turned 20 years old December 19, 2013.  She was the first cat my husband and I got as a married couple and she was our little princess.  She never weighed more than 6lbs in her whole life and was always the smallest cat in our pride; however, her heart and her personality were huge.  Her passing leaves a gaping hole in our family and in my heart.  Today’s post is dedicated to her life energy.  I feel these shots show just how pure it was.  I took them one day when I was holding her near.  

    I will always love you, Mei-Ling!

  6. Lap Photography

    You guessed it!  These photos were taken when my kitties were sitting on or against my lap!  I took these with my iPad Air as well.  I have to say, I am pretty impressed with the quality of the pics I can get with this tablet camera.  I have been using it more and more for photos, while I wait for my new camera to arrive (come on April!).  While these obviously are not the quality I would get with my current camera, if it were in working condition, I still thought they were good enough to share here for entertainment purposes! 

    What do you think?  Do you have a tablet and enjoy using its camera for shots like these?  Leave a comment below!  I would love to hear your thoughts and stories!

  7. Marilyn As Art

    I am still having lots of fun paying with my new iPad Air, as this post is about to attest.  LOL    I created the following pictures using an app I found called “MegaPhoto.”  It has hundreds of different photo filters/effects, if you are willing to pay for it, but even the free version that I got has 76!   I will say that for the best resolution, you will want to take a screen shot of the image created in the app and not download the image from the app.  Not sure why, but you lose a lot of res when you take the image out of the app. Anyway, it is free so…LOL  

    I actually thought that these shots were really neat.  They reminded me of something you would actually hang in your home as a piece of artwork! Without further ado…here is “Marilyn As Art”…

     

    So what do you think?  Do you think these are as cool as I do?  Or do you think they are lame?  LOL!  Leave a comment below!

  8. Sorry I’ve been MIA!

    Sorry for the lack of a Weekly post! I have been dealing with some health issues, but should be back in commission later this week! Thanks for your patience and I can’t wait to get things back to normal on here!

    XOXO

     


  9. MEMES (and other funny captioned pics)!

    Memes are EVERYWHERE, so it is not surprising that I have had the opportunity to make some involving my cats!  I just thought it would be fun to share them here for you all to see.  :-D  I hope they bring a smile or laugh into your world today!

    A funny that I made for a costume contest at work one year where you were supposed to look like your pet.  I didn’t win, but the HR Director said I should have…oh the joy of office politics.  I do NOT miss that.  LOL But this was really fun to create!  :-D

    So do you like to make memes, either of your pets or yourself/friends/family?  Share links to them or tell me about them in the comments below!

  10. Just for fun…

    As of this past weekend, I am the proud owner of a new iPad Air!  LOL!  And, as any new gadget owner, I spent the weekend playing with my new toy.  This, of course, included playing with the camera features using my cats as subjects.  Below are some of the silly pics I took!  I hope you get a laugh out of them!

    Thermal Meeko

    X-ray Meeko

    Thermal Meeko 2

    X-ray Gus & me

    Thermal Meeko 3

    X-ray Gus & me 2

    I found the Thermal shots to be really neat.  I loved all the color while it kept a lot of the detail too.  The X-ray shots CREEPED ME OUT!  I thought Gus & Meeko both looked like they would kill you and I looked like a ghost!  But they were really cool!  Anyway…just something fun for a change!  

    Do you have an iPad or iPhone and enjoy playing with the photo options on it?  Tell me about it in the comments below!

    XOXO
