This little kitty lives SOMEWHERE near my house. I think. She could be a stray.
I keep a stash of dry cat food on hand to give her “snacks” in the evenings. She usually shows up when I step out for a smoke, appearing seemingly out of nowhere. That, or I see her striding confidently up the street on a direct route. She hangs around in the constant shade around our house, protecting us from lizards and trying to chase the squirrels that live in the 60-footer Ash trees in the front yard.
She is black & white, so my photo had to be, as well.
As for the title, take into account that she’s B&W and always seems to be doing her rounds.
So I call her Patrol Unit 1.
This is an attempt at a high-key shot, but with about 75% of the image black . . .
