Black and White Sunday: Remembering Gertrude

16 Jul

When K8 was taking photography in High School and learning how to process pictures in the dark room, she took this wonderful black and white picture of Gertrude. Gerty passed over to the great meadow in the sky in 2007 at the age of 15 (you can see all our past sweethearts on the Angels page). She was the sweetest girl and lived in my office for most of her days. Shy with most people from the day we adopted her out of a garage full of flea bitten kittens (with her outspoken sister Alice), Gerty was patient and quiet and loving. ❤

Have a colorful Black and White Sunday!


This is part of the Black and White Sunday Blog Hop. Thanks to Dachshund Nola and Sugar for hosting.

      I miss a long haired cat (we only have short hairs right now) and the calico markings were purefect. Thanks

        I have two longhairs now, after only ever having had shorthairs. They are wonderful to snuggle with but boy, that hair gets everywhere! 🙂

          Funny. I find that the shorthairs shed more but the longhairs get mats if you don’t brush often. =^..^=

            I have two very furry Norwegians who also happen to “molt” their winter undercoats in the spring.
