    Love this – it works so well, you and the cat have the same fierce energy coming out of your eyes. And you’re both dressed in black:))

  • Thank you!

    Nice shot and idea Jessica. We have a cat like that – doesn’t want to be held I mean! :-))

  • She will cuddle and sleep with me every night and get up in my lap, but if she’s got an agenda and I pick her up she’ll wiggle her way out of my arms. ;)

    Great idea, so well done… even if Midnight didn’t want to cooperate completely, you still got a fantastic shot! Makes me think of the Witch Hunt in Salem…

  • Thank you! Yes this series reminds me of witches too.
