Introducing Essie; Art

One more new cat - Essie was adopted out a few months ago but due to unfortunate circumstances, her family had to return her.  Essie is such a sweet cat - she just fits right into my crazy household.  She made friends with Merlin and Gandalf, and she even seems to like the dogs.

I don't get how to work my camera.  I really need to take a class or something.  Otherwise I end up with weird pictures.  In the picture above, Essie almost looks orange.  In the picture to the left, she almost looks white.  I'm pretty sure she doesn't actually change colors, so it must be the photographer.  Maybe if I paid more attention to what settings I was using instead of just randomly saying "let's try this", I would know how I end up with these odd pictures.
Take these picture of Merlin, for example.  The one on the right looks normal.  But then I randomly changed my camera settings to something - no idea what - and got the one on the left.  It almost looks like some cool artist shot - like the bizarre colors were purposely done that way.  I kind of like it. 
Which gave me an idea.  I don't usually edit my photos.  That's for professional photographers and people with more time on their hands.  I prefer to give you the SOOC shot (straight out of camera), because I'm just lazy.  But since the colors in this photo are messed up anyway, I thought I'd try it in black and white.
I like it.  What do you think?
