Homeless in Vancouver: One cat’s recipe for contentment

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      This is a friend’s mum’s American Ragdoll cat just kickin’ it back at home. In a pot. On the stove—business as usual for this particular cat I’m been told.

      “Mom” took  the photo with her mobile phone’s camera. To get it out of her phone her son resorted to photographing the screen of her phone using the camera in his phone (I even left in a bit of the left side bezel of her phone).

      It felt wrong to break this causal chain—I was seriously tempted to photograph it off the screen of his HTC phone using my Pentax WG-3—but I chickened out and had my friend give me the photograph me the old-fashioned way: by emailing it.
