Submitted by: Susan McCulloch

Sultan

Submitted by: Susan McCulloch

Materials: Sultan the Cat, outdoors, books

This is Sultan, my male polydactyl (6 toes each foot) Turkish Angora. He is helping me put hearts in the windows to say hello to my neighbours

Oh look! It is Sultan again. Wanna play? He loves having me home all to himself.
Sultan does not look too happy in this next photo. I decided that we both needed some fresh air and took him to the lake. Don’t worry. He was not on a leash the entire time. He has his own pet stroller for easy transport.
Sultan in the stroller.
Home again, with Sultan in the stroller.
Sultan is tired.
These are books my friend in Nova Scotia sent me. Each week of isolation, I have posted a gift to one of my friends. I should own shares in Canada Post.
Sultan likes the smell of this box. All the way from the Maritimes.
Sultan again! This time at Crescent Beach. I carry him in his own cat knapsack. A pretty trick item.

My 10 month old twins are the joy of my life! I never imagined when becoming a grandma that we would have to be separated for visits. I dream of the day when it’s safe to hug my family again.

I am always isolated

Submitted by: neighbour

Materials: Hidden needs

Being on Toronto outreach teams, we are very aware of what obvious isolation can look like. Maybe our communities will see hidden needs more clearly now. 🙏

Colourizing old family photos

Submitted by: Oats4Goats

Materials: Colourized black and white images

While stuck at home I thought I would take up a hobby I’ve always had an interest in, colourizing old photos! History has always interested me and I’ve always been fascinated by colourized images and the way they bring the past back to life. Combined with my love of photography and family tree tracing, its tedious but it has been the perfect way to whittle away the hours. Many more in the works!

Lights out

Submitted by: Ralfyboy

Materials: Pic of basement, pool table, mural, etc.

Image of my late Dad’s basement. He was a true Habs fan. Oddly grateful for the pandemic because watching the Habs play this year would have been difficult.
