This is another very fine photograph by Helmi Flick. I like it for a number of reasons. Firstly it is rare to see cat parents side by side so that we can compare their appearances. And we see their three kittens, none of whom are pure black. Also I have to mention the wrangling by her husband. He makes sure the cats are facing in the right direction by using cat teases. Sometimes the owner of the cats assist. To get them all together like this is very hard and takes a lot of skill.
