I was walking around outside the other morning taking photos of spring, when I glanced over and saw Winston, our feral kitty, sitting under the porch. I'm not sure how old he is, but just these past few months, he's started to look more older to me. I do so wish we could get further along in our relationship.
Right now, he seems comfortable on our porch and property. He sleeps on the porch when it's raining and when it still gets a little cold at night, in the morning I find him in his warm house. When I feed him, he doesn't run off, but steps aside about two feet and sits down. I can reach over and he will lean forward and sniff my hand. But I don't think he knows what it means to be petted. He doesn't show any signs of wanting to be petted, so I'm nervous about trying to touch him any more. If I make any sudden moves, he takes off, so he is still very skittish.
As you can see, he got rather bored by the whole photo session.
I think he looks rather regal made all artsy, don't you. For this, I used the Topaz Labs Simplify Plugin - preset Buzsim.
