#CaturdayArt: Sense of Smell Day

HAPPY CATURDAY!


Today we are celebrating Sense of Smell Day.

What smells are your favourite?


Here are my top five: 
  • Mum's scent because she smells of love, comfort and safety. Plus, I always know I will be fed when she's around. 
  • Bozita* Chicken. I love the smell of this delicious cat food from Sweden, and it's so tasty.
  • Lavender. Mum uses lavender oil in her bath to help her relax. This means her bath towel often retains the scent. Sometimes when the towel is dry I find it folded on our bed so I like to roll about on it.
  • Carrots drive me crazy too - more than catnip does!
  • Birdies (yes, I love the aroma of birdie wafting through the window)

The top five smells I hate: 
  • Bananas are revolting (Mum hates their awful stench too)
  • Other Cats 
  • Dogs
  • Wine
  • Coffee 
Mum used Dreamscope for my Caturday Art today. This is the Secret Garden filter. Mum said it suits today's theme purrfectly. Mum added a frame from PicMonkey*

You can almost smell the flowers in this fairytale secret garden, can't you?

Very tropical and sunny this week, Athena!

I love your art, it is especially pretty this week. You would love the calming collar I got for Sammy, it is lavender scented.:)

Summer said...

What lovely art today, Athena! I love the way my human's hair smells and I try to lick and chew on it sometimes. For some reason, she does not approve.

Your picture is brilliant, Athena! You look at one with nature in it. :)

Carrots, huh? I wonder if Gracie and Zoe would like them, too?

Hugs!

I like the fairytale filter, looks good on you!

Little Binky and Granny said...

Oh, I love this flower-power-likey artwork, Athena. This could be a picture for the wall, so beautiful :) Pawkisses for a wonderful Caturday :) <3

The Menagerie Mom said...

What a gorgeous image of you, Athena! And your lists are purrfect. Evan says he'd for sure put butter on his list of favorite scents. And, believe it or not, all of the kitties here would put dog on their list of favorites. That's because they are all quite fond of their puppy sister Astrid and just love to love on her. Banana would most certainly top their lists of unpleasant stenches as well, alongside the nasty odor of orange.

We love the scent of lavender, and do you know that fleas don't like the smell of lavender so rolling around in lavender scented towels is a great idea to keep them away from you.

The Dreamscope; Secret Garden is gorgeous.

Peaches and Paprika said...

Lovin the dreamy SECRET GARDEN effect and it's purrfect for today. Happy weekend to you, Athena and Marie.

Roby Sweet said...

That is BEAUTIFUL! I can't stop looking at it. I've never heard of a cat liking the smell of carrots before, Athena. Very interesting!

Marty the Manx said...

So beautiful today! Ralphie likes lavender too :)

Marie Symeou said...

I do that too, Summer! Forgot about that.

Orange and lemon too... As for dogs, I'm not used to them so maybe I'd like them if they are nice and friendly with me.

Thanks for the flea tip!

Kitties Blue said...

The Secret Garden filter was purrfect for you Athena. This art and you are both stunning. That ws an interesting list of the smells you do and don't like. Our mom hates the smell and taste of coffee as well. It is our dad's favorite thing! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

Your artwork is superb and I love the garden theme Athena!

Marg said...

We really like that picture. Well done. We are not sure about the smell of carrots but we know we don't like the smell of other cats. You all have a wonderful day.

That's a great art piece! Pop loves bananas but only when they aren't overripe and don't smell like a banana. I have some lavender nip that I haven't tried yet.

Marie Symeou said...

I think cats do. I love it though :)
