Faith Boo - Wacky Wordy Wednesday


I am still reeling from yesterday's posts.
Admittedly, I did not see Faith's "creations" as art.
Apparently a lot of you... well, all of you did.

Guess there is a lot of "creativity" is packed into that kitten.

For instance, yesterday, KC posted on the Cat Blogosphere Toosday Noos:
Hmmm, wonder if those mangled pieces of lizard she [Faith Boo] left behind in tha paper shreddings counted as "art" too????

To which the Taylor CatSSSSS quickly replied:
The unfortunate lizard was an ART CRITIC!!! So beware!!!!


Then this photo mysteriously appeared on my Desktop:
Who can forget the day Faith Boo "deaded" the lizard?

Or the day we looked behind the dryer...
where Faith Boo hides...
to discover the dryer vent totally CHEWED off?

Or the day she helped herself to Temptations and
then chewed open all the new bags of cat food?

Or the day I almost had "cat tail tea" due to her warming
her floofy tail in my pot of newly brewed tea?

And this morning, was her digging and shredding the shopping bags
mere greed or the beginning of another "masterpiece"?
What about the carefully unrolled cardboard scratcher?
I just don't know!

We can definately see the art of the destroyed scratcher. It looks like Faith is having a wonderful time while she is in her "creative" mode.

You go gurl!

Eric and Flynn said...

To the uninitiated, artistic genius is often misunderstood.
We got mum to help us spell that.

Auntie ML...:shaking heads:....Our sweet Auntie ML...:more shaking of the heads:....we will explain what is clear to us:

#1. All art critics work under a "nom de plume", which is of course: a pseudonym adopted by an author or their publishers to conceal their identity. So that Lizard Art Critic was clearly crazy to show up on an artist's doorstep. If he was coming to review FBS'(Faith Boomerang Sherwood) art, he should have worn a disguise. His fault entirely. FBS was not at fault.

#2. Obviously FBS was looking for new materials to work with, if indeed she was behind the “dryer vent incident”. We understand that this “incident” is still under investigation as to whether or not FBS was involved. Until that is resolved, we can legally say no more about it.

#3. Have you never heard the term “hungry artist”?

#4. Obviously FBS was warming her tail in anticipation of using it as yet another means of creating her amazing art pieces. The artist’s mind is ever creative.

#5. The shredding of the shopping bags, obviously she is moving to a new medium or has a plan of mixing mediums.

#6. The unrolled cardboard scratcher, the young prodigy is working on yet another masterpiece. We PRAY that you left her to finish. Who knows what the end product will be?

We think this book might be helpful to you (no disrespect intended):

Art for Dummies, by Thomas Hoving: Explains to the average person how to understand, appreciate, and evaluate art.

We love you Auntie ML!

mommy just went ::SIGH:: and ran upstairs to make shur that the toilet paper was put in the big plastic toilet roll thing that holds 3 rolls. It's the only place Billy cannot get to. She loves coming home to find the toilet paper unrolled and going from the upstaiirs human litterbox room to the kitchen downstairs. or seeing Billy running downstairs with the end of the roll in his mouth. or if the roll is small enough, running downstairs with the whole roll in his mouth and then laying down and shredding it when he bunny kicks it to death.
Billy is in awe of Faith-Boo.

The Meezers said...

oh, and our mommy really feels bad for your mommy. Maybe Faith-Boo will grow out of it.

Zoolatry said...

Certainly was an auspicious day when FaithBoo returned to live with the Sherwood Bunch: she is bringing comic relief, joy and fun, interesting times, antics and energy to the CB (not to mention to her own household!). What a charmer!

cyclone cats! said...

keep it up Faith! Don't let them stifle your creativity!

(although our mama doesnt' like it when we get "creative" either)

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Mommy insisted that we come back and tell Auntie ML that Mommy owns most of the DUMMY books. Mommy didn't want Auntie ML to think that we were being disrespectful.

We love you Auntie ML!!!

Faith is just 'into' that distressed look for his art work. She is a sweetie pie...

DEBRA said...

I meant to say "HER" art work...
:::SIGH:::
My Momma does feel for your Momma but we kitties don't understand,we think Faith as one of our heroes...

Oh Faith Boo - clearly Mommies just don't understand us Torties! I frequently prepare Tortie Tail Tea, or sometimes Tortie Toe Tea (it depends on the day) but she never seems to appreciate the effort!

Keep at it little Tortie Twin!

Miss Faith Boomerang strikes again!

Tybalt said...

Faith Boo is a true artiste!
~Holly and Ivy

She's just another tortie terror - I'm glad mommy didn't adopt her! I'd never have a moment's peace!
~Tybalt

She's soooo cute! But I can see she is following in the terrible twins' footsteps. Their kittenhood was a nightmare of destruction and stinky poo . . . but I couldn't help but adore my "special" girls.
~Tybalt and Tortie Twins' Mommy

The Cat Realm said...

We love her art!!!! We call it "post modern destructivism" and she will be in the Museum of Modern Art any day now!!!
Looking forward to seeing you all on board the Voyager for the wedding soon!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

She is an excellent artist.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Mommy had a thought....actually it is one of "her" jokes....well, Mommy, IT IS! Sorry....anyway here it is:

Mommy thinks the Lizard Art Critic should have come as a chameleon.

Yes, Mommy....we get it....heavy sighs....very funnny!

Marilynn said...

Grace has done that unrolling thing with the circular scratcher before -- forced me to go get a new one. These guys have chewed through new bags of food, too, so I have to always remember to put them away -- up high -- in a cupboard!

Ahhhhh, the creative ones ... very high maintenance, indeed!!

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

such creativity is a sign of higher intelligence. I'm totally in awe of the cardboard scratcher thing - never seen one come apart like that. I'm sorry to say that I didn't destroy anything yesterday, but I did barf on the carpet 3 times and on the bed once...well, those are the ones the Lady found anyway. when I'm feeling better, I'm gonna make up for it. in the meantime, Riley knocked over a drink and continued shredding the kitchen cabinet.
purrs and hugs,
Rascal

Oh me never though of callin it art! Mommy an artist she has to beleive it. :) ~Empress

Team Tabby said...

We likes cardboard too. Our round cat scratcher rarely gets any cardboard inserts - we make 'art' out of it as well. Mom has fun picking up da big mess.

Daisy said...

I believe that Faith must be allowed total freedom to express herself artistically!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Definitely an artist!

Meowmepurr's Mumma in Washington State said...

We can only shudder at the thoughts of what Miss Faith Boo could get up to if she actually got BORED!!

We stand in awe and amazement at her accomplishments at such a young age

Hmm, it sounds as though you have a prodigy on your hands. Her art sounds like "installation art" or, on a more agressive note, if she's trying to tell you something, maybe even guerilla art!

I loved how she gulped up the lizard art critic! I can just see it now...

Lizard Art Critic: Hmph. Your use of color is outdated, and I can CLEARLY see where you ripped off DuChamp in your ridiculous attempt to... *CRUNCH!*

Faith Boo: NOM NOM NOM

I also love the Taylor Catsssss's dissertation on Faith Boo's art.

Samantha & Tigger said...

Wow!! Faith Boo Sherwood is an artiste! She must be a prodigy!! Just think of all the fun you will have!
Your FL furiends,

Emma's Kat said...

LOL! I also laugh at Zippy, Sadie & Speedy's mom! Umm, I think I'll keep my comments to myself seeing as that I'm one of few humans here, hehee.
