If a picture tells a story, then what is the story behind this picture?

While sorting boxes of old photos I came across this one – perhaps it was one of my Mum’s, I don’t know. Written on the back are the words “My grateful thanks to you both”. It is not signed. What was the story behind it? He may be a relative as I didn’t know many of my mother’s brothers as they live some distance away. It is a rather serene yet serious photo.

What do you think the story could be?

  1. Perhaps he had been through a hard time, a loss. He needed a place to stay where people cared for him. His eyes downcast a bit, not a direct look or gaze. Pensive. How relaxed and comfortable is the cat. They’ve been through a lot and the cat is there for him. I like the idea of photos as writing prompt!
