Thanks to Crystal for inviting me to do this guest blog. I started the Feline Cafe blog 8 years ago on Blogger when my wife was home dying of cancer and I was caring for her 24 / 7. I had six cats at the time. For a little diversion I began to try making a blog. My wife died shortly after I started in 2010. The six cats kept me busy. They didn’t care if I was depressed or not. Their needs had to be met! At first I blogged cats and other topics; then I blogged just cat subjects; and finally I changed to a “photographic” cat blog which is where we are at today. Three of the original six cats are still on the blog. They are Opie and Zeke– 8 year old Maine Coons; and Marigold a creamy orange long haired cat age 15. A fourth cat named Scooby age 8, a big red tabby who arrived in 2015, was adopted out of a shelter by me.
Many years back I built a “cat run” which was the name given a “catio” before the word was coined. I liked to take photos of the cats outside in it and posted many them; and today I have a number of such photos here. In the past sometimes I let the cats out in the backyard and stayed with them trying to “herd” them, but it could be nerve racking trying to keep them from going where they shouldn’t like up a tree! Especially hard if one cut to the right and one cut to the left! I don’t let them walk free outside any more. Scooby was leash-trained by a former owner, I discovered, so he can go on walks on the leash.
I try to keep the posts light hearted. That’s about it really. Below are a few sample photos I like:
This week on Caturday Art with Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty I’ve cubed my last cat Tigger who is now an angel since she passed over that Rainbow Bridge on 9-11-2015 and I’ve also cubed my current cat Daisy Mae(AKA Queen Daisy Mae).

- Creating the GIF effect – Stars Effect.
- Creating the GIF effect – Minimizes Effect.
- Pop Art Picture.
- Create a GIF – Stone Effect.
- Create a Gif – Thermal Effect.
- Create A Video GIF. *Please Note* I can’t show you an example of this tool because I have a Free Site and that plan doesn’t support it.
- Compil’ Polaroid – Fixed And Animated.
- Animated Text – Glitter.
- I started learning Glitter Framing.
MY GIF EXAMPLES OF WHAT I LEARNED
The above pictures are examples of the Glitter frame. The heart frame and 3 different square glitter frames. Finally below is the Animated Glitter Text.
These are only a few tools I learned. I learned PUTTING Text ON A PICTURE Tool on GIFGIFS.com. I appreciate everybody help & comments on this. Just to let everyone know, I finally had success with GIF. WAHOO!!👏💛👏, WAHOO!!👏💛👏*Please Note* There are many GIF sites but the two I listed were the easiest to learn what I wanted to know.

Hello everyone and welcome, Hope your month is going well. I asked Queen Deputy Mom “Sister” Crystal if I could do this post since it’s about me. She agreed but said she might be adding two sense. Whatever that means. I’m Queen Daisy Mae. But then you humans and furballs are smart so you already knew that.
As you know the Month of May is the month for graduations, proms and of course Mother’s Day. I may not have a prom to go to but I have a Graduation and Mother’s Day. Speaking of Mother’s Day I don’t even know what I’m going to get my Mom. Anyone have any ideas? Yes I’m graduating. It’s a cat/kitty graduation. My first graduation was when I was taken from outside into my furrever home. My second graduation was when I graduated from a kitten into an adult cat. My third graduation is this May. Actually it’s the weekend of the 11th to the 13th. My Fourth graduation was when I became a blogger on what is now called CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE. I would like to invite you all to My online graduation Party. Even though graduation is the 11th to the 13th, My graduation party will be May 4 to May 31st. My next graduation will be when I become a Cougar or 15 years old. I have 3 more years to go. That’ll be fun. OOPS, I almost forgot Queen Deputy Mom “Sister” Crystal insists on putting her two sense in. So here she is.

When I was hunting for birthday cards I came across this picture of my dog Shandar who was a female Alaskan Malamute, Runt of her litter and 125 pounds of loving. Snowball was my female cat who was beautiful, fluffy and 18 pounds of loving. They both have passed over the Rainbow Bridge. When I found this picture I thought it would be perfect for Sunday Selfie.
I chose this cat picture with the butterfly because Butterflies have an interesting bond with other animals and humans that I thought this cat picture with a butterfly was appropriate. Remember, if you see a butterfly or several butterflies in your yard or around your house that just means your furfriends and/or loved ones that are now angels have come back for a brief visit and to check on you. I learned that the bond with a butterfly is very strong and now I know why. Happy Feline Friday.
My nephew thought all the sunflowers he planted weren’t going to come up. Boy did he get a pleasant Surprise when he saw that some of his sunflowers actually did grow. In the above picture is my nephew with his sunflowers.
