Lady Calypso Mish-Mish is 11 years old.* I got her as a tiny kitten that fit in the palm of my hand.* Her mom was a stray that had a litter at the local Deli, and Calypso was the runt of the litter.

Calypso's brother, Casper, is gray and*was the largest of the litter & my mother & sister have him.

This pic like the Julie one was taken with my Canon PS G6.

I love how they can curl up into little balls.

Of course she also sprawls out every now and then...

Hi dohernan,

Both of your pictures are strikingly beautiful. And of course so is your lovely feline. Thank you for sharing both your pictures and Lady Calypso's history. Nice to know the background.

Beautiful.

Teree

Hello again Dohernan,

I am the same way. Sometimes the story behind the photo is like an added bonus that makes a picture just a bit more personal to the viewer. I am an animal lover at heart but cats are my favorite. I grew up with them my whole life. I married a wonderful man who also loves cats but is unfortunately allergic to them. So, now I enjoy my mom's cat and lovely pictures of other people's cats like yours. :-)

Thank you very much for your comment on my avatar! It is a picture of a baby screech owl that was nesting in a citrus tree in our yard. This picture was takenafterI passed under the tree and looked up. This little fellow and his/her nest mate were peering down at me through the leaves. Astonished, I ran in the house to get my camera and took a ton of pics. This picture was cropped to feature the eyes. It was really amazing to see how they calmly watched my every move with their curious stares.

Thankyou for letting me relive that time and for your kind comment.:-)

Perhaps I'll post a small series ofthese sweet owls on the forum. You'veinspired me. :lol:

Have a great day,

Teree

*smile*A story with a picture is an added bonus indeed! Even just a little comment can add an extra something special.

I love all animals, but cats in particular as well. If I had a largeplace I'd have a dog to keep my 3 kitties and grouchy bird company. It's a pity about the allergy, but at least you can still enjoy your mother's cat.

Oh that is so lovely that you had the baby owls in your backyard! What a wonderful opportunity. DO post your owls! I'd love to see them.
