My friend, Bonny’s cat. What a handsome fellow he is and always so ready to pose for my camera. She found him at Bay Area animal rescue and the minute they saw one another, she knew they were going to be best friends for life.

‘OLD BLUE EYES, THE MIGHTY HUNTER’

The tabby cat has a distinctive coat that features stripes, dots, or swirling patterns. Tabbies are sometimes erroneously assumed to be a breed of cat. In fact, the tabby pattern is a naturally occurring feature that may be the original coloration of the domestic cat’s distant ancestors. Tabby color is found in many breeds of cat, as well as among the general ‘moggy’ (mixed-breed or mongrel) population. When cats are allowed to breed randomly, the coloration of the population tends toward brown mackerel tabbies with green eyes, leading geneticists to believe that this is the common wild phenotype of the domestic cat. The tabby usually has an “M” mark on its forehead.

A tabby cat has a distinct coat that features stripes, dots, or swirling patterns. There are four tabby patterns that have been shown to be genetically distinct: mackeral, classic, spotted and ticked.

Cameras and photography captured my interest years ago as a child with my little Brownie. The cameras have changed over the years until the Digital age when I got really serious about photography. Not only has my work improved, but it has opened many doors to meeting wonderful people along the way. New friendships and learning new skills… I am hopeful that some of my best work is yet to come.
