In between my travels, I want to give another quick shout out to the 52 Week Smartphone Challenge by Khürt Williams. The theme for week 7 is ‘Love Story’: “Make us feel the love in this week’s photo. Tell a love story in one image.”
Luckily, I have a new friend at home , who is filled to the brim with mischief, as Cashew, our Siberian Forest cat, often up to no good! But then, you look at this face, and how can you not feel the love?

Welcome to the 197th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!
I figured that there are many cat lovers among you and I was definitely not disappointed by all the great cat photos that I got to enjoy this week! On top of that there were some really creative approaches that you brought to play. All of your posts were a lot of fun to peruse and view.
Thank you for all the wonderful posts!! Please share your appreciation with one another!
Here’s another view of Cashew…
Cats will twist themselves into just about any direction, and Cashew is no exception. In this shot, you get to see a bit of his length at 6 months… He’s going to be a big boy!
Please enjoy the following blog posts:
Kammie has a wonderful set of cat photos in her post in Nut House Central, which makes me wonder who is in charge in the Nut House?
Nicole has a fantastic photo in her post in Un Photo,Une Poeme, as that cat looks longingly into the camera!
Diane has a great tongue-in-cheek approach to the theme in her post in pensivity101…there’s a cat in there somewhere!
In a great post in PhotographyOCD, Mike tells the tale of an emotional rescue of the feline variety! Great job!
Viveka clearly likes cats, and more than just her own as we can see in her blog, myguiltypleasures; those are some awesome cats!
There is definitely a rather regal look to the wonderful cat in the post in theOnlyD800intheHameau; wonderful capture!
Teressa has a rather cool looking cat in her post in Another LQQk; the cat looks to be very interested in Dr. Seuss!
In a truly interesting post in Don’t Hold Your Breath, we learn about the cats of Istanbul, who might actually rule that city!
Na’ama tells the tale of a cat, quite Leonine, in another lovely post in Na’ama Yehuda; love the photo too!
Welcome to week 197 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge! I’ll be catching up with the round up by Wednesday.
As our household grew by the arrival of a Siberian Forest Cat, while I was in India, I thought I’d dedicate this week’s challenge to the theme of Cat! Among all of our pets, cats tend most imbued with mystery and often a bit of aloofness. Plus they feature large in plays and mythology, so they are a great source for inspiration of all kinds. Please bring your most enjoyable cat to the forefront this week and let them reign supreme over the challenge (it’s just like being home for them!).
Have fun, and may your best cats appear all over the web!
Here’s the Cashew who is taking over…
His name is Cashew and he is a little devil, as he will grab your entire leg when you walk by him. Cashew is a Siberian Forest Cat and he’s 6 months old. Fully grown he’ll be an easy 20 pounds of crazy fun. He’s already an absolute love and after less than 2 weeks, he’s taking to roaming the house and letting the dogs know who’s the boss… I took this shot with my iPhone 11 Pro Max using the Portrait mode and Stage Lighting.
The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:
Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!
Hopefully, you won’t need nine lives to present your cats!!
At some point during our week, we all look to get some time to relax and recover from the busy schedules that keep driving us forward during the workweek. Usually, it’s not until Sunday that this time arrives, as Saturday has time for errands and other minor tasks around the house.
Unfortunately, there’s still some leftover work to be done before starting Monday’s busy schedule, but with a morning jog and a visit from my daughter it should still be relaxing.
Despie that, there is one denizen of our house that manages just fine….
