While on a photography walk a cat volunteered herself to be my “helper.” She was a very affectionate little cat and whenever I stopped to take a picture, she interpreted this as an opportunity to cuddle. If I did not bend down to pick her up she would climb up, just as she might a tree. When not demanding my attention she would bound ahead of me as if to say, “this way!” She was very kind as to check out the holes in the ground for me, and to climb on the trees that lay by the path. Being a cat person, and possibly half cat, her company was very welcome. And she was very photogenic and did not seem to mind posing for a few shots.
