Cat's name: nino
Human's name: jamile
Length of cohabitation: about 1 year
How you came to live with each other: a few months after i had to get my previous beloved kitty named pixie euthanasied, i started looking for a new cat at local shelters websites. i thought i'd never find such a sweetie as pixie, that would be ok with my "elmyra duff instinct". then i found nino and he's even better than i expected.
Favorite shared activity: general petting and play catch (he has a precise way to invite me to run around the apartment, trying to catch him)
Tell us about this photo: nino spends the day alone in the apartment, and everytime i get home, he hears me in the hallway and starts meowing. so as soon as i get in, i pick him up in a tight hug. this picture is one of these hugs.
What you love most about your cat (or cats in general): to begin with, everything. specially about nino, i love that he likes to be squeezed.
How or why you incorporate cats in your photography: cats are great subjects...
