I shot the accompanying photos on July 23rd and saved them for today. Cali played with some dangling thing from her perch and in rare form looked cute rather than ferocious. She’s a huntress that one. I waved natural-fiber strapping (from IKEA furniture) with my left hand, pulled out the iPhone 6 Plus, and shot using the other. The Featured Image captures her lively, playful spirit.
Cali came to us in late October 2014, after my daughter felt compelled to give up the animal. A cranky, cat-allergic roommate forced out the Tortoiseshell. Except for some chewing on wires, she is a good pet.
