The (Honorary) Cats of University Heights: Guapo

Among the four-hundred ninety-three profiles in this series, thirteen, including today’s newcomer, live outside the neighborhood’s official boundaries: Buddies, CandyChill, CoalEnvy, JadeMonaMoophie, Ninja, PromiseSammy, and Tom and Jerry. Darth Mew initially belonged to the group, until later turning up in University Heights.

This morning, I passed Guapo (yep, real name) leashed by his mom along Adams near Arizona, which is the teensy-bit inside North Park. I met them while walking home from dropping off our car for routine servicing. We greeted, I passed then turned back asking if I could take his portrait.

The Featured Image and companion both come from Leica Q2. Vitals, on auto-setting: f/4.5, ISO 100, 1/320 sec, 28mm; 8:43 a.m. PDT. For the other, aperture manually set: f/8, ISO 100, 1/60 sec, 28mm; 8:43 a.m. Yes, there is some motion blur on the second shot, where Guapo meowed loudly.
