    Pimenta and her stripes

    A short while back I posted here about finally managing to capture Pantera's "ghost tabby" markings in a photo. Now it's Pimenta's turn 😊 I've written before that Pimenta is a very good example of brazilian feral cats. History states that the Portuguese brought felis iberis with them to Brazil...

    Unexpected problem (half kidding- read to find out)

    Here in the southern hemisphere we are in the middle of summer, with temperatures over 38°C (98°F) every day for the last month or so; New Year's day was over 100°F 🥵🥵 Pantera has not been enjoying this, she doesn't like hot weather. Like many people here, really Off and on we have given...

    Finally got it, sort of

    It's a truism that black cats are hard to photograph. Pantera is no different, but sometimes I get lucky.

    New kid on the Block: Pimenta

    Most of you are quite familiar with the current diva Pantera, and her friend Pingo ; now, as of 9 days ago Pantera has a new friend. Pimenta was living with a small group of cats living on the property of a nearby school- I don't want to say ferals because they live off of the food...

    Better late than never: Pingo

    Should have posted these photos before, but here we go. This is about Pingo, my mother-in-law's cat. She asked me to post this, since she's not really internet-saavy. Just like brazilians in general, Pingo knows how to turn on the charm. Here's his story from elsewhere on the internet...
