I never do self portraits, so I decided to do one tonight.
My 8 year old son took a reference photo for me, and this was the end result. The cat I’m holding is Freddie Mercury. We found him as a stray kitten in a parking lot near my work. We had an eye infection, so we took him home and nursed him back to health. He always tries to get outside, and, if he succeeds, he will usually get stuck in a tree. We always joke that he is the worst feral cat ever. We have found that if you have a cat that likes to climb trees, but doesn’t know how to come down, it is definitely worth it to have a local tree trimming service that likes animals and a sheet to catch the falling kitty in when the tree trimmer tosses him down.
