Lens-Artists Challenge #61 – Precious Pets

In general I often prefer animals to people.  I’ve had pets since I was young, and I’ve worked with animals in various ways throughout my career.  However, I would unequivocally say I am a cat person.  They have so much personality and require just the right amount of attention.

Popcorn was my first cat.  She was very feisty, though she mellowed and became more of a lap cat when she was older.  She had the most beautiful long white coat, with a raccoon-like mask and tail.

Jolee was the first cat my husband and I adopted together; we named him after a Star Wars character.  He was a huge troublemaker and figured out how to open the doors in our house.  He passed away rather suddenly this year and left a big hole in our lives.

Juhani is also named for a Star Wars character.  If there is a lap available, she will find it immediately.  She is the sweetest cat ever and tolerates our toddler with equanimity.

You can find more precious pets at the original Lens-Artist challenge.

    Interestingly, cats seem to be the preferred pets of our responders. Yours look so sweet and completely adorable!

      Maybe bloggers tend to be cat people?? 😀
      Thank you! I take more pictures of my cats than about anything else except maybe my kid, but the cats pose better!

    So adorable! I’ve never had a cat, only dogs, but there is something so intelligent and powerful about them, especially for how small they are.

      Yes, sometimes they are so intelligent it’s a bit scary! 🤣

      I love dogs as well! But I think I am not suited to live with them full time. I enjoy taking the dogs at the animal shelter for walks instead. Pets just fill a special place in our lives.
