American Shorthair Photographic Portrait

An outstanding photographic portrait by Helmi Flick of the popular American Shorthair. It has a “portrait” quality, hence the title. It is quite formal and straightfoward. The coat is classic silver tabby. This is considered to be the coat most favoured by breeders of this cat and buyers as far as I am aware.

  1. Michael it’s a beautiful photo and cat. Another sad option but possible would be to watermark it without invading too much.

    • I do watermark. I have done it many times. I have removed right click download and I don’t want to spoil the purity of this photograph. A one off because it is so pure and classic.
