Sunday Morning Photos

As Sunday was quite nice and sunny here I decided to let the cats and Charlie out in the garden. We have one outdoor cat, Fluffy he just moved in one day and didn’t leave, three indoor cats, Logan, Rogue and Mystique (Missy for short) we were on a bit of an X-Man thing when we named them. They are allowed out but only under supervision, we have had some poisonings in our area so Simon doesn’t want his ‘babies’ going out. It wouldn’t have been fair to stop Fluffy going out as he was about  at this point.

Anyway I took my Camera out with me to take some photos, I wouldn’t say I was a brilliant photographer but I like playing with the settings, then when I get fed up with that I just put it on auto and it handles it all its self, I would say that the photos the camera handles the settings for are good but somehow a little flat, and obviously with programs like lightroom if your settings are a little off you can always fix it in post processing.

I have a Panasonic DMC-GX7 micro four third camera, I have a few lenses for it, probably the one I use most is 14-140 it gives me the best of both worlds, I can do close up and medium distance with it. Probably the only time I take all lenses with me is when we go on holiday and even then I decide which lens will be good for the job on the day.  I used to have a canon 450d it took really good pictures but it was so heavy and big I never took it anywhere. The GX7 gives me the versatility of a DSLR but in a smaller/lighter package.

Anyway here are photos of the Cats, Charlie and the garden.


More soon….

Kittens

Poor kittens came down with an infection last week, they were very poorly with a high temperature, feeling sorry for themselves and going off their food.

Logan and Rogue went down with it first, with Missy following them the next day.

Simon rushed Logan and Rogue to the Vets last thursday, were they were given a shot of antibiotic and a liquid patch, the Laura (the Vet) then sent us home saying to keep and eye on them and if they didn’t feel better to bring them back the following day.

Needless to say they weren’t feeling better and Logans Temperature had risen, so back they went to the Vets, who decided to keep them in 😦 . Missy decided that she didn’t like being at home just with Uncle Fluffy and proceeded to come down with it as well. Another visit to the Vets, Simon’s third in two days to drop Missy off. Lauren (The other Vet) decided not to do a blood test on Missy as they had already done the other two and the results had come back negative.

The Phone call from Laura Saturday was promising, Logans Temperature had started coming down and Rogue was eating and yelling. We went to visit the kittens Saturday Afternoon, they looked happy to see us, Missy was still poorly but she was a day behind the other two. Because it was very hot outside and they still had a temperature Laura decided to keep them in another night.

Fast forward to Sunday morning, Simon had a phone call from Laura saying please pick your babies up as they are very loud.

We don’t know what was wrong with our kittens, Laura thinks it was an infection, they fought it off by themselves and probably if it hadn’t been so hot outside they would have been alright at home, but although they could deal with one or the other, having a temperature and a heatwave was not a good combination.

They are back to normal now and getting under everyones feet but it was very worrying.
