Late in the hour I decided to commemorate the last day of 2012 by posing for pictures with four very special cats — my family’s two cats and my two. I took somewhere between thirty and forty thousand pictures this year, and what pictures weren’t of dead leaves were usually of them. Not excessive, by the way. I made these pictures sepia, because sepia means Special Memories Forever ™. Happy New Year!
In the end, their portraits were very true to who they were. Layla is the cat version of a horse’s ass, June is sweet and pliable as Play-doh, Maggie is watchful and wise but a little standoffish, and Rio is basically like an honorary human that you can commune with.
