Cats!

During my photo shoot ramblings, I have had the pleasure of visiting with a few cats who just happened to be close to whatever I was photographing. Some of them were shy and would run away, but others were curious and followed me around.

My favorite cat is this one who resides at the Old Court House Museum in Vicksburg. He's a friendly little fellow and seemed to enjoy posing for my camera.

I came across this little cat napping in a flea market booth, and thought he was real until I got a little closer to him. I was amazed by how real he looked!

A couple of years ago, I did a post about The Gates of Vicksburg, and was shooting a picture of this gate at one of the cottages of Cedar Grove Mansion ...

There is an enclosed patio area below the gate and I interrupted these little guys sunning themselves.


During a "country roads" photo shoot, I discovered this little "peeping tom" watching me from the side of the road. He ran away when I tried to get closer.

On a photo shoot I did at the Jackson, Missisippi Zoo, I found some more cats, but they didn't follow me around, thank goodness.

As I was writing this post, it occurred to me that I haven't encountered many dogs during my travels. In fact, I can only think of one that was sitting in some tall grass beside an intersection of two country roads, and I quickly snapped his picture.

This has inspired me to add to my collection of cat pictures. They have such beautiful faces, and I would love to get some good closeup shots.

The Court House cat is a real beauty, such pretty colors. Cats always have sweet little faces, even the big ones!
