The Cats of University Heights: Poser

There is nothing like lush greenery and ground following heavy rains. Yesterday morning, between downpours, I walked down Campus, where beyond Van Dyke a black-and-white surprise waited. Such a beauty she is, too. The tuxedo furball posed for me and iPhone 7 Plus.

Against the clinging vine and fresh grass, one could easily mistake this Southern California home for the side of a French farmhouse. But the Bird of Paradise creeping in the upper right hints at more tropical locale.

I captured the Featured Image at 9:03 a.m. PST, and the other photo—a 90-percent crop—one minute earlier. Respective vitals: f/2.8, ISO 32, 1/60 sec, 6.6mm; f/2.8, ISO 20, 1/137 sec, 6.6mm.

Update Sept. 10, 2020: I saw a poster on a utility pole near Poser’s house. She is missing.
