I wish you could hold this photo in your own hand. It's actually less than half this size, and the scan didn't do its lovely silvery blacks and grays justice, nor how crisp and jewellike it is.
Besides, the subject actually involves a cat among chickens! Granted, a cat being held by a very sensible looking youth, but look at the cat's ears! You cannot tell me that cat is not awash in temptation. Ohhhh. . . so much temptation.
Thank you for your continued good wishes - Bac' is doing a lot better, much better indeed, but now I am just waiting to see if she is truly improving. I have been in varying stages of worry since last Thursday so that's the main reason you haven't seen me much.
