The exception of the rule

With an overload of cat and dog portraits on social media I’m reluctant to pollute cyberspace with more cat and dog pictures. But of course there are exceptions. First of all is our own dog but that does not count. I love dogs and, honestly, I’m not a cat person. So it is very special that I publish an image featuring a cat. This one I met at a restaurant nearby dazing in the afternoon sun.

Portrait of Yogi the cat

This portrait is dedicated to a ‘lawyer’ in Holland who makes astonishing portraits of people; just for the sheer fun of it. Suspect (! 🙂 ) that for many pictures he’s using his gorgeous secretaries as model! And ‘Ooggetuige’ blogs them. Enjoy his pictures here (opens new window).

Oh… uh… Yogi is done in monochrome; some new skill that needs a bit of honing…_DSC7796

His Grandfather used the ride the bike …

Now it’s in use as decoration at the entrance of a restaurant in Napier, Overberg region, South Africa where the cat is the boss and the proprietors are just there to pay the loans…. 🙂

The fabulous runaway cat

Friends of us somewhere out there have a cat. His name is Yoghiswa but Yoghi is also OK. He comes all the way from Germany and one day, a few weeks after the arrival of our friends Yoghi decided to walk back to the airport to catch the plane back. After 14 days he was at the other side of the village and Olga, everybody’s vet, knowing about Yoghi took him in her house and that’s how Yoghi ended up in front of my camera. This cat has incredible blue eyes (2nd picture) but I prefer the black & white image.
