Life is delicate, so are little kittens. They walk a delicate line between life and death and my little friend reached the end of that line this week. Rest in Peach Frodo, you good cat you.

This blog is about my life and the way I see it through my camera, and like most photographers, my family is some of my best subject matter. That is why I want to start sharing some of their pictures that I take of them, starting with the youngest in the family. Her name is Cali and she is a five month old kitten, and while she had a rather rough start in life she is a ball of energy now and the sunshine of my days.
I had to bottle feed her until she was about two weeks old because she was the only kitten born in her litter that lived and her mother couldn’t produce enough milk to feed her at first so I bottle feed her. A few days after she was born I found an orphaned litter with six kittens, and I let Cali’s mom feed them in hope that her milk production would pick-up, which it did. I hoped that Cali would start feeding also, but these kittens where a couple of weeks old and a lot bigger than her and she wasn’t strong enough to fight her way in to eat so I continued feeding her. After a week of this I found these kittens mother and was able to get them back to her accept for two that I let stay with Cali and her mom and they all seemed to do ok including Cali even though I would have to occasionally feed her.
What do you do to relax after an especially stressful day?.
This is the walk across bridge over the Ohio river from the KY side into Cincinnati. This bridge was the prototype for the Brooklyn Bridge.
This guy and a few of his relatives like to chirp and squeak at me and other students from his lofty perch in the tree every morning as I go into class. This morning I just happen to have a camera, not my DSLR but my smaller point and shoot with me, so I snapped a picture of him just after he ran up the tree and turn to give me his daily report of what ever it is that squirrel’s thinks is important to communicate to us humanes.
