Here is a cute Oriental Shorthair Kitten. In fact, there are two. This little cat captured my heart at the Apr 25-26, 2009 Oklahoma City OK – TICA Thunderkatz cat show. This was a nice show and Marty Young came in with this little cat and a white one of similar age, to be photographed. I have (as usual!) forgotten their names. But my word! These cats melted my heart and I am not usually a great fan of Oriental Shorthair cats.
It is quite difficult to photograph adult cats but a little slightly unsure and nervous kitten, like this one, is harder. But as usual Helmi and Ken produced the goods. I am very impressed with the finished result, which I publish here as well so you can get a better feel for the quality:

Now, what of the little white one that Marty also brought in to the studio. Well, I’ve taken a still from a video camera (1 MG image). I am sorry the quality is a little weak but here it is:

Meeting these cats was one of the memorable experiences at this cat show for me. Another was the Oklahoma wind, that screamed for the entire time through a nearby tower.
