A flash in the night

Just before the Covid-19 pandemic hit Ireland properly in late February 2020 Blarney Photography Club had an evening session dedicated to flash photography. I’ve already posted a couple of the photos from that night but here are a few more from the night of February 20th, 2020, or 2020-02-20!

The Mother of our Cats

The Mother of our Cats

Mommy Cat, a now elderly cat who has lived with us for over 12 years now, is a semi wild cat who brought her kittens to us many years ago. There were six cats altogether. Three boys, a girl and their mother. She has never let us rub her, unless we get a sneaky rub in as she’s facing away but she immediately tries to bat our hands away. However, her offspring were and are the most affectionate cats. Unfortunately the three boys were killed on the main road beyond the ditch. Mommy Cat rarely leaves our garden now, and Hoppy mustn’t go far as there are feral cats around.
