Putty Pairs

While looking for kitties to profile in my “Cats of University Heights” series, I occasionally come upon some hanging out together—as is the case with the Featured Image, captured on Sep. 25, 2021. Vitals, aperture manually set: f/8, ISO 125, 1/125 sec, 28mm, 10:26 a.m. PDT. Daniel Tiger approaches Darth Mew. The cartoon character-named orange lives on Louisiana, while the Star Wars black often hangs out there.

A better pairing with Darth Mew is the photo essay accompanying Jedi (a nickname). The others are less friendly: A stand-off with Ash and Bandit—and another between Goose and Jasmine. They all share territory and are not housemates.

The second photo puts Pepto and Huck on Meade, which is rather odd since both live on the same street as Daniel Tiger. Vitals, aperture manually set: f/5.6, ISO 100, 1/125 sec, 28mm; 9:05 a.m., April 3, 2021. The pair appeared to be in friendly pursuit of prey. These first two shots both come from Leica Q2.

One-eyed Reddy and Zero hang out together in the neighboring yard. I used iPhone XS to make the moment, on May 17, 2021. Vitals: f/2.4, ISO 16, 1/109 sec, 52mm; 3:14 p.m.
