I shot this by window light, hand held at 1/15 of a second. Since
it wasn't very sharp, I applied
a Nik Soft Focus filter to it,
and the result is a pleasing portrait
of a most amazing kitty, who has
been tamed from feralhood and is
now the most cooperative and loving
cat we've ever seen.

Awwwww how cute this one is! I'm in process of trying to tame one, too. She's a cute little black bobtail. I'm going to try to find her a home if I can get her tame enough. #1601846

Good luck, Carolyn. Always let something
be the cat's idea, not yours. Now our
pair loves to be flea combed, held,
etc. And they're home!

Peaches, a girl, is about ten months
old now. She's very flirty, stretches
herself out on the floor so her back arches and you can scratch her tummy.
She pretends she's there to play with
her mousie; but we really know why
she's there. Her big purr gives it
