Last Sunday morning, I had the privilege of photographing 5 dogs and 7 cats at the Townshend's. That was only two-thirds of the feline population that live at the Townshend residents. The pets clearly outnumbered the humans. We went around the neighbourhood with the dogs and met the cats on the patio. I had so much fun interacting and photographing that bunch — who are very well looked after, and well behaved. I just love seeing cats and dogs being themselves and the Townshend bunch is just that. Thank you all for a wonderful time!
ps: I've put together this blog post with the help of Oliver, 'dad' of the bunch.
