During the Seven Days of Black & White Challenge there were a few comments about how various shots would look in colour. Well, here they are.

Both Elsie at Ramblings of a Writer, and Lucile at Sights and Insights invited me to join the Seven Days of Black & White challenge. The rules are simple:

β€œSeven days. Seven black and white photos of your life. No people. No explanation. Challenge someone new each day.”

If you haven’t already taken part, please consider it — especially if black & white is not your usual “thing” photographically.

  1. Lovely to see them in colour. Your cat looks like one I had – a cream tortoiseshell? Mine was called Mittens and she was adorable, very placid (totally different temperament to her genuine tortoiseshell mother) and loved to play football (using marbles) and mother her brother (lazy boy). Sadly she died aged 13 on my return from my first visit to Australia.

    • 😦 what a horrible thing to come home to! My fur baby was pretty feisty for her (small) size. We got her and her brother as kittens back in 2000. He was huge and placid — she was always the fighter. She used to take on our neighbour’s English Sheepdog — and win. We lost her brother in 2015 and she got very sick at the beginning of the year; finally taking herself off to die. It’s been very hard for us not having closure. I keep expecting to see her, or think I’ve heard her scratching at the door.

      • Mittens was quite small too. She had a tumour and couldn’t breathe properly. I took her to the vet on a Sunday (!) and because of her age and the breathing issue we decided not to operate. Staying with her was hard, but at least it was quick and painless. Funny how we never forget our pets.

        • Our “old boy” had a tumour on his nose, and we had the same experience. Both the Big T and the boychild were out of town, so it was just me with him. As you say, it is hard, but I’m so glad I did. His death in my arms was closure for me that I didn’t get with his sister. Not only do we not forget our pets, but we afford them dignity and ease of death that we deny ourselves.
