Prompt 1 - Dream

The cat is asleep and their dreams run wild!

I'm back on my daily trading card art for the month of October nonsense.

This year I'm mostly using the #Inktober2023 prompts as I do quite like them but may mix it up with other prompt lists!

#Smallartist #ACEO #Blackcat #Inktober

Trading card sized art piece featuring a black cat. surrounding the cat is surreal tunnel walls with trees, ants and a skull. The cat is asleep and you can see the letter Z drifting away from the cat repeatedly.

Throw back #caturday of my favorite picture of my baby girl, Midnight. She was my first black cat and I loved as she got older, her whiskers turned white. Sheโ€™s gone now, but she was my little buddy, and fond memories of her snuggling with me for late night feedings with my girls make me smile still. #catsofmastodon #blackcat

A small black kitten laying on a lap, curled up with her hind legs underneath her head.

She had her spaying surgery last week, so her front legs are partially shaved and she's wearing a black/gray/white camo onesie.

And she's sleeping, so her little pink tongue is sticking out just a bit.

My last day. #CatsOfMastodon #blackcat #cats

But .... I am grateful: my humans gave me a really good life. So much love.

Thought I lost the kitten. Turns out, she just wanted to be warm. Or summon a demon in secret. I don't know which.

Quite franklyโ€”as far as the kitten is concernedโ€”it's none of my business. ๐Ÿ˜ผ

#CatsOfMastodon #Caturday #BlackCat #kitten @securingdev

A short video of a black kitten hiding behind two blankets and a pillow. The kitten's gold eyes are visible as I move the blankets back, and she stares up at me, wondering why I'm disturbing her warm, dark place.

I put the blankets back in place, and left her to do... whatever it is black cats do on the autumn equinox.

While looking for pics of bleps for Bleptember, I stumbled on this old picture from April 2021, before I cleared all the moss of our garage roof.

Moss or no moss, the cats love this roof. The garage, an old barn, is built into a hill so the lowest part of that side is only about 60cm off the ground ie, a perfect height for being tickled when a human is walking along the adjacent footpath.

#mosstodon #caturday #blackcat

A black cat standing on a thick bed of moss, on a sloped stone tile roof. (Not that you can see the stones for all the moss.) The cat is looking out of shot, to somewhere above the photographer's head: their eyes match the colour of the moss. Their tail just fits in the frame, upright with a gentle curl at the top.
