Gertrude, Christmas 2004
This is my favorite picture of my wonderful calico, Gertrude. When K8 was in High School she took a photography class and developed this picture the ‘old’ way, in a dark room. I love the grain and texture.
Gertrude was a scaredy cat. In 1992 I rescued her and her sister, Alice, from a garage that was filled with 100 flea infested kittens. She was shy and quiet and unassuming her whole life (17 years). She lived in my office most of the time and would share her window with Muffin when he would come visit. She and Zachary really liked each other too. Her goal in life was simple, she just wanted to sit on my lap.
I cannot imagine a life without cats!
Wishing everyone who celebrates a wonderful season of lights and magic.
That is Stella and Noel back before Stella lost her mind (2015) and decided she hated other cats.
I know you thought it was Mini Cooper. They look very much alike. =^..^=
