Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Pets

My Pets

I knew that Pets was coming up as a theme so I’ve been saving a few pictures for it. Polly and Cindy are probably the most photographed pets I’ve ever had because they are the fur kids of the digital age. I have some of all of our previous cats and dogs but not as many as I’d like. I don’t have  a picture of Tammy, our first dog, as a puppy for example.

Here is Polly in the back garden. The path and entertainment area are covered in limestone dust. Polly thinks this looks a lot like her kitty litter and has taken to doing her business there. I should be cross but it makes me laugh to see how she copes with trying to tidy up the biggest kitty litter tray ever after she’s done it. I’ve only seen her do number ones there thank goodness. I refrained from photographing her doing the deed but I still got a dirty look afterwards.

Here is one I took of her when I was first trying out the new camera.

I don’t want Cindy to feel left out so here is one that I took of her around the same time and another of her having fun in the back garden recently.

Last here are their predecessors, Tessie who came from Adelaide with us, Jake and Josey who were litter mates that we got from someone in Huonville. We went to get one kitten and came away with two.


I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
