Colouring with Cats #37 ~ Getting Your OM on with Mandalas on Mondays

Supurr Monday greetings beautiful furriends

Well we had the most beautiful weather offur the weekend, 21C + and that's unheard of normally fur this time of year but apparently there's a bit of a hurricane headed our way in the next day or so.  Nothing like the scale of the US and Caribbean, but appurrently it's going to get purretty windy so we made the most of our outside time before it all goes south!

So let's jump right in and start as always with our little breathing exercise, which we're sure mew all have down paw by now...  but if mew've furgotten, stop what mew're doing fur a moment and take deep fulfilling breaths; counting to five on the inhale and five on the exhale:

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Don't mew feel better already?  I know we do!

*    *    *

 Anyhoo we decided to do a bit of Om-ing in nature at the weekend.

Fudge and Smooch starting off relatively normal... that didn't last long! MOL

Parsley was walking the blue brick road, as was Pandora.  Smooch was getting thoroughly grounded in the dirt, Fudge well he's just a heathen so he bombed around the garden at supurr zoomie speed while Amber and I offursaw all the proceedings! MOL 

All in all mew can't beat a furmilly excursion!

*    *    *

If mew have missed any of the previous mandala's and feel the need to binge colour, here's the links:

All the mandala's featured are created & designed by us, unless otherwise stated.

So without further adieu here's this weeks mandala.

Just right click the image to save and print it...

And here's our finished version...

The P.A. got a bit of a neon vibe happening this week with her gel pens! MOL

Friday the 13th, Fudge Up A Tree and Mau Katz Modern Cat Furniture on The Pet Parade Blog Hop #217 with Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Barking from the Bayou

Friday greetings wunderpurr pals

Welcome to our weekly round-up on The Pet Parade.  We're sure mew know that today is Friday the 13th, a most auspicious day in our calendar.  Though many believe it is a day of bad luck, which we think is utter nonsense, here's a few common and rather misguided supurrstitions:

1. Black cats

You’re doomed to bad luck if a black cat crosses your path.

2. Mirrors

If you break a mirror, kiss 7 years of luck goodbye.

3. Ladders

They say walking under a ladder is bad luck. 

4. Salt

If you spill salt, you’re suppose to throw it over your shoulder to avoid getting bad luck

4. Purses

You should never leave your purse on the floor if you want to avoid bad luck. 

5. 6.66

If a bill total $6.66 or you receive that much change you should either buy something else or leave a penny from your change to avoid bad luck

6. Umbrellas

Opening an umbrella indoors is said to bring bad luck. 

7. Cutting Your Hair

If you cut your hair on Friday the 13th, legend says someone in your family will die.

Appurrently there's even speshul terminology for fearing Friday the 13th - Friggatriskaidekaphobia or Paraskevidekatriaphobia are the go to wurds if mew suffer from this rather bizarre phobia.  To be honest the wurds sound more threatening than anything! 

Our Friday the 13th challenge to mew today is to say:

 Figgatriskaidekaphobia  Paraskevidekatriaphobia 

three times really really fast!!! MOL MOL

*    *   *

Anyhoo, swiftly moving on aftur that terrific tongue-twister...

Fudge decided in his great wisdom to get stuck up a tree again.  He'd been outside fur a whole five minutes when a pigeon landed in the conifer tree next door.  

It's not Where's Wally, It's Where's Fudge!!! 

And no he didn't catch the pigeon, he just meowed pitifully at the P.A. and took 20 minutes to get down.  I have no wurds fur his innate ability to get repeatedly stuck up something!

Oh and before we furget...

A couple of days ago the luffley peeps from Mau Katz Modern Cat Furniture asked us if we'd help share their new online cat emporium.  Of course we said yes as mew know we're always up fur spreading the wurd on funky new feline furniture and uber cool stuff fur cats, and Mau Katz has some of the most wunderpurr things in we've seen in a long time.  

Check out some of the pawesome products below.

Amber thinks the tank is epic.... yep she's still driving hers and still luffs it
