Handsome Gabriel (he looks very sweet in this photo)

Can’t really add any words to this except to say he has clearly got used to the camera! At one time he ran away from it. He’s adopting to my way of life 😉 . I like photography and he doesn’t realise what a good and photogenic model he is.

To those who don’t know, Gabriel is a semi-feral cat (was a semi-feral cat!) who I am fostering. He has been with me for a week and he has made good progress. I am with him all day, every day.

    I can’t believe what a confident little sweetie he is especially compared to the first couple of days with you! He has so settled well and just looks so contented which is lovely to see 🙂

    Another wonderful photo, Gabriel is very photogenic indeed, he is so gorgeous and very like our little Bryan we had from being a kitten many years ago.
    It’s obvious he really trusts you now Michael, what a fantastic job you are doing with him, I’m so happy for you both.

    • Ruth, it is fun and a joy to see him making progress day by day becoming more confident and growing up. He slept next to me all last night. That was fantastic. He slept on a scarf next to my radio about 2 feet from me.

    I don’t know if it is the lighting or my eyes, but his left eye looks like there is still some blue in there. Have both eyes completely turned from blue? Don’t you dare stop sharing pics of this boy! He wants to be famous!

    • You are eagle eyed, Cindy. That blue is a reflection from the light outside which looks blue compared to the indoor light. It is a highlight in his eye. Looks nice though, doesn’t it? His eyes are greyish/green. Perhaps the color is dark hazel. Not sure.
