You Woke Me Up! ~ Cat Portrait by 

British Shorthair cats were originally found in the alleys of 19th century British Cities. A man called Harrison Weir loved the British street cat so much that he selected some of the hardiest and strongest, bred them and almost single-handedly created the British Shorthair.

The British Shorthair became an officially acknowledged breed by 1889 and went on to become one of the most popular breeds in cat shows at that time and still are today.

His owner says he’s big-boned, but to me he looks sort of “boneless!” lol

Two seconds after this shot…click to see him before AND after…

Having a digital camera is like having an unlimited bank account. Thousands and thousands of images, each with the power to bring back the sights, the sounds, the scents and the emotions of that one moment in time…bliss!!!

  • You do! He went right back to sleep. He’s about 12 years old and takes his sleep seriously. I was lucky his owner could get him to open his eyes! lol

    Great capture the color is difficult I know LOL, wonderful eyes, looks like he is ready for a nap :)Pat

  • He loves his family and they love him, but he does sleep a lot and he is getting old. I was surprised at the eye color. I made the one with his eyes closed into a black and white, but this one…I thought his eyes went so well with the bed cover, I decided to let them shine. ☺♥ Thanks so much for your kind comment! ☺♥
