A Kiwi Kitty (Take 2) | cat photography

Did you ever hear a story about a Tiger who became a Monkey? You may have read, loyal reader :P, how a certain cat came into a house I was visiting in New Zealand over Christmas - walked right in from nowhere and made herself at home, for a while, before taking off again.

She was a familiar face in the neighbourhood but our hosts didn’t know who she really was or her name.

We called her "Tiger" and I did an impromptu photo shoot, published on this blog.

Well it turns out this moggins owners have now been discovered - living a few houses down from our host’s house. They also saw my blog post and got in contact!

Ok “Tiger's” name is really Monkey. She is an Ocicat with quite an outgoing personality and a social life to go with it.

So thanks to Monkey’s owners A+J for getting in touch and letting us know Monkey has a great home.

Its an example of social media filling in the gaps and creating a happy ending to the story. The story of the Tiger who was a Monkey :)

BTW - speaking of “social” - we have have two brother cats over here who are currently single! :D

misty the husky puppy | puppy dog photography

So I first met Misty the Husky puppy at Amy’s Puppy Pre-school and I was instantly taken by her mystic look.

Now, being the larger-than-the-other-puppies puppy in class, Misty was clumsy in every way although she was a very bright student of Amy’s and graduated at first go.

I received a call Misty’s ‘grandma’ wanting to plan a surprise Christmas present for Misty’s ‘parents’. I had a great time photographing Misty - though a puppy, I think she’ll grow up to be a fine young lady - classy and witty at the same time. Here’s the result from our photoshoot - hope you like them.

Licking good | puppy photography

So my almost weekly trip to Amy's Puppy Preschool continues this year. Why? Maybe Harry Potter has made me mad for education. Maybe I'm just addicted to the insane lovability of these critters.

Also - I love working with Amy - she's a legend! Its great to see how her pupils grow and develop - it really shows the value of good training. We just need one for husbands now - hubby preschool. :P Now that I'm thinking about it - a preschool for my cats is also not a bad idea.

But seriously, as a photographer this "school of superstars" is a joy to work with - hope you all like the results!

A Kiwi Kitty | cat photography

This cat does not have a name (however we called him “Tiger”). I met him visiting the in-laws in Wellington New Zealand over Christmas. Apparently no one quite knows where he lives - or if he even has a home. However he is well known around the street and seems to be quite busy visiting everyone.

He also seems quite healthy - maybe because he’s very smart at looking after himself.

We met him as he was doing his rounds I think - he just walked into the house like he owned the place and the next thing we knew we felt we had to give him some milk!

At least he hung around long enough for me to do a quick photo-shoot - 15 min is all I need - fair trade i guess :D
