She's an Animal

This month's photo challenge is Animals. I live with two of them at least. One has not been feeling so well nor looking her best so I knew that I wouldn't be putting her or myself through the headache of a photo session.


That's why I went back to the archives and pulled a few old ones out. Then, last evening, *Donna posted about a new app.* Course I couldn't be out of the loop so I downloaded it, too, and did some playing. This month's challenge is less about photography and more about photo editing.

I do think I captured her love of a good book. 


Thanks for stopping by...


Oh, one last thing...











Just had to toss in this fellow. I used "half life" on the app Donna spoke of.

Thanks for hosting, Donna! Please find the other participants right *here.*

  5. Not bad ... for a cat. (Spoken by a real dog person. *grin*) Fiore is a pretty name. I didn't know it means flower in Italian. (Or Eye-talian, as we say here in Gawga.) Seriously, though, I hope your kitty is not ill. Wishing you both a happy, sunshine filled day. ~:)
    PS: Thank you for sending us rain last night. It was you that sent it, wasn't it?! *giggle*

  7. She is a true beauty. Is she as sweet as she appears, Vee?

    My kitty Romeo would really want to "woo" her! : - )

    1. Yes, she's pretty sweet. She was a feral kitty for the first year of her life so she's had to make lots of adjustments and has done very well. She and John are thick as thieves.

  25. What a beautiful calico kitty, Vee!! I love calicos! My mom has one named Ellie, and her previous cat was a calico, appropriately named Callie. Yours looks like a real sweetie. I hope she'll soon be feeling better; is she very old? I love the look of your pictures; I'll have to check into the app. you used. :)

    I hope you have a great weekend!

  30. Fiore is a beautiful puss, love her gorgeous green eyes. And how lovely too that she appreciates a good book! Smart kitty!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Fiore is gorgeous Vee - but I think she's had enough of that book, she looks bored with the storyline!

    I'm thinking of trying that app Donna told us about too - I just haven't had a chance to even look for it yet.

    Happy weekend dear friend - Mary
