Thanks for your comments and time, Evy, Patricia, Cathleen, Carolyn, Joy, Connie, Judith, Dottie and Ellen! Some of you may have heard me say that "Gambit" is a cat who was left behind when his owners moved away. He is a survivor, and very friendly and is now sort of watched over by multiple people in my friend's neighborhood. Sometimes he sleeps in a little basket on the front porch of the house where he was abandoned...he is certainly a beautiful Maine Coon and a real joy to photograph! #181151
