The bluest eye

Sometimes even black and white pictures reveal the colors of the important subjects in a photo. In this shot, we somehow know that her eyes were sparkling blue and her baby cat was a Calico just by the shades and tones that come through. Both subjects look blissfully happy just being together and it depicts a contented relationship. Adorable.

Let me be the first to say it ...

Adorable. I'd love to know what each one is thinking. The look of the girl is so intense; the cat, however, is enigmatic. I guess I don't read cats very well.
