I have been featuring all kinds of critters, but seem to have left out the most sensitive of all critters...the feline in our homes. Hope they'll forgive me once they see this post.
There were many felines that I have met on my trips ...some were acquaintances, some became close friends. I'll feature three of them here.
PROUD THAI TABBY
Met this proud feline at an artist's workhop in Phuket, Thailand. I don't think she is a Siamese cat, but this is one proud Thai tabby. It took ten shots before I could capture this image of her.She was a difficult feline to photograph.
PROUD TABBY'S FRIEND
This is a friendlier character. She strolled in when I was trying to capture PT's (PROUD TABBY)
profile, and she waited patiently for her turn under the lights. A most accommodating kitty. I have posted two images of her below to show her my appreciation.
She became a friend. When we were in Dunedin, New Zealand, in a lovely B+B, we looked out for Solstice as she was featured in the brochure. There was neither a glimpse nor shadow of her during the day. At night when I was at the computer table in the reading room, there she was, sizing me up from where she sat on the floor. Then to my surprise, she gracefully hopped on to my lap, and kept me company as well as warm until I left to go to bed. I'll never forget that bonding and that warmth from a total stranger. Just look at that graceful and gracious feline, my friend in Dunedin.
Linking to Haiku My Heart is this haiku for Deb:
