Meowy Monday -- cat photo of the week
This is Rostan. Or at least that's what we call her. I probably don't mention her very often. There's two reasons for that: 1) she's often gone for long periods, especially during the warmer half of the year and 2) she isn't ours. Not really. But she seems to have adopted us -- and probably at least one other family as she's gone for such long periods at a time.
She just turned up one day. A stray, perhaps from the nearby farm that closed down. The farmer there had feral barn cats. But we later found out he had them shot when leaving the farm so they wouldn't starve to death (or be in the way of the new owner). So we really have no idea who she is or where she came from. But she seems to like it here. Even if she's independent and leave us without as much as a goodbye meow every now and then, she always comes back. To the food and the warm bed. And to us, I hope.
We call her Rostan because of her colour: rost is Swedish for rust.
The textures were really just added to the two first photo because the window behind her was so dirty, I had to try and hide it. You can see some of the dirt in the above, unaltered photo. Had to add at least one pic no messed up in any photo editing software.
