If you’re a crazy cat lady like I am, you’ll love this new series of posts I have lined up. Every once in awhile I’m going to gather up the best photos of a particular cat I’ve shot over the years and write up a little bio about them.
And, being the current love of my life, I thought it’d be careless of me to kick off the Cat Files with anyone but the man in black himself. So…
Say hello to Felix!
