Handsome kitty, great portrait, Michelle. I didn't recognize Butterscotch without the dramatic eye effects you've used on other images of him.

He is magnificent Michelle!

What wonderful family members cats make. We were going to wait until after the holidays to bring a new family member home after losing Donovan last week. I just cant make it that long without a feline in the house, so when I get back from Seattle for Thanksgiving I am going out to look for a new lap warmer! Thanks for sharing such wonderful images of yours.

Thank you Leslie, Donna & Nikki! Butterscotch is a she - apparently only 5% of orange tabbies are females - so, she's a pretty rare little beauty!

She should breed them! Of course, the vet told me this after she was fixed. She's my little sweetheart - scared of her own shadow, but such a pretty girl!
