INKtober Challenge: – Day 23 – ‘The Visitor’


When you’re long forgotten by your human relatives, will anyone visit your grave? Had this sombre thought while passing a beautiful graveyard on the bus today. Centuries-old gravestones were standing higgledy-piggledy and I got to wondering… does anyone visit anymore? Do their family’s descendants know that they’re even there or who they are? The thought of an engraved stone marking the resting place of a person that no one knows, remembers or visits suddenly seemed very depressing. Have a happy Friday!

At least the little guy in the picture made a mortal friend.

INKtober 31. – Day 9 – Not just for Halloween

I read an article in The Sun the other day that (in the UK) black cats are the most likely to be abandoned by their owners as they are apparently not as desirable as a lot of other breeds. That’s disgraceful enough but the worst thing is they suddenly become desirable in October, to coincide with Halloween, before being ‘undesirable’ again. It’s shameful that any animal should ever be seen as a ‘fashion’, it’s a living creature for pity’s sake! My parents have owned black cats since before I was born and I can guarantee that they are ADORABLE, every single day of the year. Not just for Halloween.

Felt pens and fineliners.

Below: my late cat, Rosie. How much more adorable can they get?!
