 Meet Sam. Sammy is a Ragdoll cat and brother to Max who was featured in an earlier post. Where Max is totally laid back Sam is more highly strung. He knows what he wants and is not afraid to badger me for it. He is also not backward about letting me know if I have upset him in someway. Saying all that he is an absolutely adorable little fellow who answers me and comes when he is called, meets me at the door when I come home and enthusiastically gives me 'high fives', 'low fives' and 'ten' for treats.

His fur is as soft as it looks and his eyes, like his brothers, are like deep blue pools of water. He loves being groomed and will often honour me with mutual grooming (like having my hand gently stroked with damp, warm sandpaper). He loves toys with feathers and having rolled up sweet papers thrown for him to play with, where they quickly get batted under the sofa.

I love photographing animals and so it is natural that I would capture some fabulous photos of my own pets too. I must admit, that I am always pleased to be commissioned for pet portraits as I love meeting other people's pets and swapping stories.


  1. Oh, those blue, blue eyes. I'm jealous.

  2. I am jealous too. He is so beautiful!!

  3. Wonderful photos! I hope you're making money from pet portraiture.


  4. I can see a bit of his lively personality in his eyes in the top shot
    I love that he grooms you back!!

  5. Thanks friends :) He is a beautiful little chap, but then I am biased!

  6. SAmmy is about as dear as he can be....As is Max....Such sweet pictures, my dear, AND, your description of him and his personality warmed my Heart.

    As to 'the healing process....not yet. I'm still very much in deep grief....I know it will get better with time, but right now? It Is Just Terrible. It's not even three weeks, you know....I miss Sweetie so much--it hurts.
