Some time ago, I noticed MasterB was growing a black whisker. rather charming, I thought. Then last week, I noticed he was growing a second black whisker. Intriguing.
Are his white whiskers slowly going to be replaced by black ones? Has he been secretly dying them? Is this something that will extend to his fur? Shall I come home one day to a cat who has changed from ginger to another colour?
Photographing MasterB close up is full of hazards. Or rarther hazard. He does like to investigate the lens with his nose (another reason for getting a robust camera that isn’t going to have hysterics when these close encounters inevitably occur). This leads to rather unfocused results.
I notice the weekly photo challenge is Contrast so I think I shall link this one, even though these photos certainly wouldn’t win prizes. But maybe someone out there has a cat whose whiskers have undergone a similar metamorphosis, and has a convincing explanation to offer.
