Weekend Cat Blogging and Photo Hunt: Artificial

For Weekend Cat Blogging, we selected a photo of Luna standing atop a table, i.e., someplace she is technically not supposed to be, but there is no stopping a cat from claiming every accessible surface.

The theme for this week’s Photo Hunt is artificial, which is an interesting and subjective term. One could say everything is the above photo except for Luna is “artifical” in that is was constructed by humans. But if one uses artificial to mean simulated or “fake”, then the banana is the most appropriate object. It is actually a musical instrument, a shaker.

In a sense, most of our Weekend Cat Blogging posts explore the contrast between Luna’s natural beauty and her artificial surroundings:

Then again, most humans and domestic cats live in artificial dwellings (unless they live in caves or trees), whether they think about it that way or not.

In the last photo, Luna once again poses on top of her scratching post, which is by now quite worn and will soon need to be replaced.


Weekend Cat Blogging #219 is being hosted by LB and Breadchick at The Sour Dough. They make the somewhat disturbing observation that August is already half over (it has been going by fast).

The Carnival of the Cats will be at Artsy Catsy this Sunday.

And of course the Friday Ark is at the modulator. It’s edition 256, which is a good number.

  1. Luna’s scratching post looks very similar to Puddy’s! It’s odd that it’s designed to be shredded into tatters, when we’re usually supposed to “look after” our stuff! I love the photo of Luna posing on the top of it – does she often get up there by herself? It’s very artsy. 🙂

  2. We are glad that Luna is not ‘artificial’,but her ‘artificial’ surroundings are very nice 🙂
    Everything ‘artificial’ looks so much better with a cat!!!!!!!

  3. Great post for the theme, and interesting reading!
    Luna is a very beautiful cat, and you are so right about how cats claim every surface as their possession 🙂

  4. Luna is quite the beautiful cat, though my Luna is a white hairless version (Sphynx) . There is something special about an animal such as a cat adding life to the artificial surrounds of designer furniture and urban architecture.

    Nice pictures thanks
