A close up shot of Mindy, a cat who found her way to our rural home on a bitter winter day as an older kitten. I suspect someone had dumped her, as too many people do with unwanted animals. Mindy is now a very wanted animal. She and our other two cats are the subjects of many portraits. Her fur is a beautiful grey-sand- peach, with hints of tabby and calico markings. She is soft and fluffy.
