Caturday Art - Metal Breakdown

So, my agent thought it would a really good idea if Van Meowlin' played a USO concert for the troops in Baghdad. It sounded like a great plan, and well, it was. Everyone was really happy to see us and the show was just great!

They even made me an honorary Sargent and let me drive a tank, how cool is that?


As you can see we played more of our heavier stuff, but that really got the crowd into it. It was great for everyone involved and everyone had a good time.

But...there's always a but, right?

Metallica - Rock It

I'm out after the show and the freakin' puparoni - did you even know they have freakin' puparoni in Baghdad? - got a questionable shot of me in the back ally with a little bit of nip. It was well under the legal limit! And I wasn't doing anything wrong.

But you know how the tabloids are. "Van Meowlin' frontman using again!" "Tristan in and out of rehab, will he ever get clean?" I mean, I haven't used seriously in a long, long time, just a little bit here and there. I'm doing the whole psychedelic thing anymore, I'm grown out of that.

I just wish the freakin' puparoni would mind their own business. Way to blow a good high.

Caturday Art: Memorial Day Steam

Well, Buster's Boots-N-Boogie threw a special Stars and Stripes tribute party at the Kool Kats Klub on FB last night in honor of Memorial Day. I had a GREAT time on the mechanical bull. But I wanted to show you our patriotic wear. I wasn't real keen on the hat at first - I know right? - but it didn't really get in the way. I think I look spectacular!

American Steam: Tristan

A little, well, not so stellar, in her basic black was my big sisfur Diamond. She insists on bossing me around at these events. Seriously, I know what I'm doing. I was NOT gonna light the fire cracker off on the dance floor I was just fooling around!

Besides, she may act like a little angel but believe me, she's a big troublemaker as you can see from her post on House Panthers. She always claims she's being set up, when she's not.

American Steam: Diamond

Fluffy Buddy sort of came with us. Well, we got him dressed up. He's a friend of ours. The massage therapist is the assistant moderator on his group, Fluffy's Buddies.

I thought it would be cool to have another dude to hang with, but he didn't want to try the bull. Oh well, his loss.

American Steam: Fluffy Buddy

All of today's artwork was done using the massage therapist's "American Steam" kit using PSPx5, and she said no, it was NOT easy getting a pair of goggles over Fluffy Buddy's big nose.

Don't forget to check out all the rest of the artwork on this Caturday Blog Hop, which is kindly hosted by Athena, Cat Goddess extraordinaire!

Caturday Art: Welcome to the Jungle

No shades this week, no sir. I'm in the jungle, baby. Getting wet, mostly.

That's because spring is turning into summer and we're getting into our rainy season now, which means that it rains most days, although usually only in the late afternoon. And of course that also means hurricane season is right around the corner as well.

But these are things I do not think about in the jungle.


In the jungle I think about what a fierce predator I am. Did you know that in Egypt and Africa and now through most of the Western world, but lion is considered king of beasts, but in Asia it is the tiger who rules. Which actually makes sense because tigers are much more fierce.

See my tiger stripes? I have a history of jungle royalty in my background! That is why I am sitting so majestically!


But never fear. I am a benevolent ruler. Not like the Demon Cat from Hell who kills thing for the sake of killing them.

I would only kill to eat, but since I have a devoted human servant to feed me, I do not have to worry about that! And that is the best thing about being King of the Jungle! Getting all my needs looked after!

In the Jungle

And now I foresee a Queen of the Jungle in your life, that being the lovely Athena the Cat Goddess who so kindly hosts this blog hop. She has tiger stripes too!

As always, our artwork was created using PSPx5 and the graphics are ©Digicats (& Dogs) by the Massage Therapist (a.k.a. the devoted human servant).

Caturday Art: Drive-In Caturday

Look I just want to say that I'm a little miffed that Trooper went with a DJ and didn't invite Van Meowlin' to play for his party. But you know...I won't ruin the Dude's purrthday party by complainin'.

I'll just some singing're own private little concert!

So you want to be a rock'n'roll star, Then listen now to what I say
Just get an electric guitar, And take some time and learn how to play
And when your hair's combed right and your pants fit tight, It's gonna be all right...

At the Hop

His name was always Buddy, And he'd shrug and ask to stay,
She'd sigh like Twig the Wonder Kid, And turn her face away,
She's uncertain if she likes him, But she knows she really loves him
It's a crash course for the ravers, It's a drive-in Saturday...

Fabulous Fifties

What do you mean the music's not right. Oldies is oldies!

Anyway. Time for a break and a shake!

Ice Cream Shoppe

I do have to say I dig the retro look totally. Maybe when I get in the Rock-N-Roll hall of fame we can do like a retro display. If nothing else, the shades are really bitchin'.


Anyway, here's our special purrthday graphic for Trooper! Dude does throw some pretty rockin' parties!

Trooper's Fabulous Fifties

Athena had her birthday this week too, she's the shining star of the Cat Blogosphere, so be sure to check out her page and all of the other cats who are part of this week's Caturday Art Blog Hop.

(Yes, yes, and espcially my pushy sisfur's post over on House Panthers Age has not mellowed her, it's just made her more cranky!)

Caturday Art: Effurybody's gone surfin'

A beach party? I was all over that. AND I brought my surfboard. You know I'm a cool dude!

Beach Party

After a dip in the ocean and hanging eight, I took advantage of the warm sun for a bit of a nap. Man, I could live at the beach ALL of the time!

Summer at the Shore

Hey, check it out! I found a Tiki Bar! Lots of Coconut Milk drinks for me!

Sun, Sea and Beach

Well, as you can see, I got a spectacular tan and had a great time. Can't wait to do it again!

Just Beachy

As for the rest of you, don't wait to check out all of the great cat art on this Caturday Blog Hop sponsored by the Athena Cat Goddess, our birthday girl!

And of course, be sure to visit House Panthers to see how my sisfur Diamond fared. She HATES the water and wouldn't go near it!
