Happy Caturday – September

The theme this month is Halloween Memories. This September, I’m celebrating the return to Middle-Earth with the debut of Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power this past week on Amazon. One of my favorite memories is seeing The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring in the theaters.

Lucius by Kajenna

Artist Kajenna creates fabulous animal art and her Halloween cats are my fave. Lucius reminded me so much of Lord of the Rings, I just had to share.

Happy Caturday – August

What goes into a good spell? Mugwort? Thyme? Bat Wool? Dragon’s Blood? Most witches know the first and best ingredient is your intentions. What are you trying to achieve? Focus on that. Your intention is what makes the spell powerful. The rest of the ingredients can come from your kitchen, your garden, the Apothecary down the street, it doesn’t matter where you get them, as long as your intentions are good. Remember, you get back what you put out. And don’t forget to write it all down for next time.

The theme this month is a Witches Halloween Spellbook.

Witch Cat by Joao Vagner

Witch Cat by Joao Vagner inspires me to create some Halloween haiku with this month’s theme in mind.

Happy Caturday – June

A Lykoi is a domestic shorthaired cat with a natural mutation. Lykoi sometimes are partially hairless, particularly in the face, giving them a werewolf-like appearance, hence the the name Lykoi, which means wolf in Greek.

Happy Caturday – October

Happy Halloween! This month we celebrate Halloween icons and the Black Cat is as synonymous with the holiday as the jack-o-lantern. Dark as night, cool, mysterious, irreverent guardians, it’s no wonder how they became so feared, blameful of calamity, and deemed witches’ familiars, cats simply appear to have their own agenda.

Happy Caturday – June 2021

One starry night, I saw a black cat looking up at the moon.

Do you think animals wonder about the moon? We certainly know lunar cycles have an affect on animal behaviors, but I can’t seem to find the answer to whether they admire the moon and star gaze like people.

World renowned artist Aja Trier picks up where van Gogh left off, by painting animals, landscapes, famous cities, and more under the infamous starry night. With titles like ‘The Haunting of van Gogh’ and ‘van Gogh Never Saw Las Vegas’, Ms. Trier is clearly inspired by the doomed Impressionist and her works are more tribute than imitation.
