May 2008 Challenge - Pets and Green (Flowers, grass, plants or anything that's green)

What does anyone have planed for the "May challenge"?? concidering it is only 1 1/2 days away.. we better put on our thinking caps and come up with one..

any ideas??

Breeze, I was just going to post asking the same thing.

My mind is a blank right now for ideas though.

what can I say 2 great minds think alike
fools never differ

what have we not done??

something doable for the kitties I can never find very appropriate pics for the themes ...or maybe im just lazy

Maybe Otter/hazel's idea a while back for a "squish convention"

Quote:
Hazel: They could have a Squish Convention! Everyone squish in here, please, and we'll get this convention started!

onster: hmmmmmmmmm that could be a monthly photo contest theme sometime

Otter: Very good idea! Misery and Bunduk would have staring roles
Quoted from this thread http://www.pets.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=50527

FLOWERS!! pets and flowers???

-ashley

Ck also mentioned flowers in the TJT. "april showers, may flowers"

I already have pics of kitties eating flowers

Flowers sound good to me, cats & dogs & other furries/feathered can do that

I can do 'mud', 'squishies', or 'flowers'...

I'd like to choose something today if possible but what about Green.
(That might give the cat people more leeway and green of course includes grass and plants etc)

So it could be anything green related - just a thought though.

Thx

Don't think that would work in our backyard .

Maybe I can find a patch of weeds somewhere .

Green, flowers, gardens...all sounds good to me . It'll definitely be a challenge for me.

HAHA!! 'green' as in green grass or 'green' as in recycled cardboard?? we have tons of both!!!

Onnie uses the recyling bin and his personal kitty fort, does that count?

i dunno about mud hazel, kitties dont like to get their tootsies dirty

Plus id have to bring mud indoors and im not tooo sure how that with fly with the parental unit, lol

So basically it is either flowers or "Green".... (there, there squish convention, one day u will have ure turn )

Ok everybody - The pre-challenge posts are merged and the challenge is on.

I sort of merged the green ideas together just to keep the theme as wide as possible...

...... and I already know what I'm doing with Ziglet

Poor poor ....he's so not going to be happy.

But hey, he does get free food and rent, .....time to pay.

Who is posting first...ready set ...Go!

Wow gorgeous Duffy!

And as always stunning pics Rick!

I only have a few green pics as my guys never venture out into the grass!

First up- my first cat Cordelia(cat-nabbed by my mother) when she used to go outside. Then my favorite tree. And lastly my in-laws' beautiful man, Ebony who passed away just last month. :sad:

I love all the shots!
growler Duffy's eyes are really brought out by the green grass!
rick the vividness of the colour is amazing!
krdahmer love the loungin' kitties - and a beautiful shot of that tree!

I don't think I'll have any green shots - my guys never venture out doors and I don't bring flowers in because they are munchers so I'll have to live vicariously through you guys! keep 'em coming!

what about a blanket. or a pillow. or a sock, or a scarf. or a piece of material that is green or a green shade.....even a toy that is kinda green around ...it does not HAVE to be flowers or grass or trees......anything green or kinda resembles green or flowers....


anything, shhhhh how about photoshopping it...

Growler - Duffy, what a sweetie
Rick - breathtaking as usual!! I love all of your pics!
krdahmer - Awwww And good shot of the tree.
Chico - we don't care how old the pics are. Your guys make any picture shine.

I know this one comes no where close to the others that are up so far as far as green goes but I think it's cute.

My camera is currently in Montreal so no new pics for a while. Here are some old ones of my last cat Ty, my first friend in Canada

I guess this could have been in the foolish challenge, trying to catch his tail:

Chico, the boys are so cute as always and Bailey too.

14+kitties, kitten on the green floor

Frenchy, love the pic of Paddy enjoying the outdoors and Nelly in the flowers and Bailey sleeping in the grass

Growler, love all your older pics especially Nikki and Nisku .....also the last pic of Duffy is awesome.

krdahmer, I can never remember which kitty is which but they all look good on the green sheets.

Onster, love the "chillin out" pics of Ty.

I love that pic of Bunduk stalking the butterfly. Did he catch him? I don't think butterflies taste as good as they look.

All great pics. Unfortunately they didn't all open for me, but I will try again.

Frenchy, those flowers that Bailey is laying among, I looked up in my gardening book and it said they are a rare species called Dandelions

As some of you now know, I graduated and now know how to post pics, so here are a few.
