Photo Hunt: Old Fashioned

goodsimonea.JPGThis is an antique photo of our first Siamese, Simone. Simone left us nearly five years ago now. She was a lilac point Siamese. We got her when she was 6. She immediately became a velcro kitty. Her personal quirts endeared her to my human. When she died, The Woman knew she could not live without another Siamese, which is how she ended up with me, even though she has always been a shelter cat kind of person.

Her blue eyes were lighter than mine but she was a lovely cat! We thought that as we have no photos of anything truly old fashioned that we’d make a photo of a cat who has gone before look rather old fashioned.

  1. That’s a great idea — antiquing a picture of Simone. She’s lovely.

  2. Simone was a beautiful Siamese. πŸ™‚ We like the photo effect! Our mom also didn’t want to live without a Siamese, but sadly can’t have one due to our dad’s allergies. So she is very happy that Merlin has joined our family, even though he’s not a Meezer.

  3. What a beautiful cat Simone was.

  4. There is of course the added bit of Simone having the old fashioned Meeser head rather then the more pointed type you have. My Mummy’s old siamese was an old face type too – it seems she likes that face shape which is more Aby like! πŸ™‚

  5. Simone was beautiful. Mommy has never lived with a Meezer!

  6. Simone looks very pretty.Maybe she was an Old Fashioned girlcat πŸ™‚

  26. Simone was so beautiful! Our mom is having a hard time living without a meezer, too, after we lost Millard … although our ragdoll Lucy is sorta kinda a meezer. But I ask you, where would I fit a meezer into my huge cat staff?
