Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Black and white cat


I’m really not a cat person, despite having a cat in our family for many years.  We used to have two dogs and a rabbit as well but they have long since gone.  Luna the cat has outlived them all.

Our eldest daughter acquired ‘Luna Aphrodite’ as a tiny kitten and when she left for overseas a few years later,  Luna stayed behind with us.  She’s never been allowed into the house but she still tries to get in at every opportunity.  She’s getting old now and spends most of her days sleeping in a sunny spot.

This is a picture of her in just such a sunny spot, a chair on the verandah which gets the warm afternoon sunshine.  I took this photo just as she was waking up and the look she is giving me for disturbing her says it all!

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge has Black and White as the theme for this week. I changed this photo into black and white on my phone but you can still see the sunshine over her body.  Doesn’t she look comfy?

 I think you are either a cat person or you’re not!  Where do you stand on cats?

  1. Great picture of Luna in the sunlight! I am most certainly a cat person! I love my sweet cat that just turned 17! Of course, I love my dog too. But I love the smaller, softer, grace of my cat. I have had 5 cats and they have all been super affectionate! Like Luna, my cat knows all the sunny spots inside my house! Cats! Cats! Cats!

  2. Luna is the perfect subject for the challenge–the monochrome allows us to see the smallest of details on her coat. She definitely looks content. The sunlight will keep her young. Happy Photo Challenge.

    • Thank you!! She is happy enough posing for me when the sun is out and she’s comfy. I too liked the way the light shows up her coat and whiskers. I’ll tell her she’s now a star – that should make her happy!


  3. The light certainly comes through and she looks warm and cozy. On the issue of cats or dogs, I’m a dog person, especially having had allergies to cat dander most of my life (much worse when I was young.) However, I’m a horse person most of all. 🙂

  4. I’m a cat person all the way, although my hubby’s dog has wrapped me around his paw… It is quite a crowded bed in the winter with hubby, me, two cats and the dog. But the pretzel shapes are worth the cuddles!
    I love the black and white treatment you gave Luna’s photo. I also love the way her paws are at the bottom of the photo. Unusual and fun!


  5. Luna is a beautiful model, especially in black and white. I love to look at pictures of cats…does that count?

  6. She is beautiful. Old pussy cats could tell us so much if we could understand them.

  7. If it is her time to go, I hope she has found a cosy warm spot somewhere under a bush or shelter. Never easy to lose a pet, no matter how old. Many memories and milestones attached to those feline creatures!

  8. Love that look on her face. But her name is even better. Luna Aphrodite, it just rolls off the tongue.

    • I know, we loved the name too. My teenage daughter (at the time) named her and although it was shortened to Luna, we often called her the full version as it sounds so glorious and as you say, it rolls off the tongue.


I love to chat...feel free to leave me a comment!
