Picture of a calico foster kitten

This is a really nice picture of a calico foster kitten at Central Florida Fosters, Central Park, Florida. It was taken by Danielle with her right hand while she held the kitten with her left. She no doubt used a smartphone as they are so competent nowadays when it comes to photography. Straightforward and highly effective. I really like the reality of it. The vulnerability of the new-born kitten. The semi-hairless belly. The faint tortoiseshell coat which will deepen in colour. She is a tortoiseshell-and-white cat and as such is female.

Foster kitten with a bit of milk formula around their mouth. Very cute. Photo by Danielle of Central Florida Fosters.
