I’ve never been able to be in the same room with a cat for very long until I started photographing at the Santa Fe Animal Shelter. With assistants to handle the cats, I was able to sit back and photograph without sneezing and crying. I love catching a cat in the middle of a thought as in this picture of Baby, a cat I photographed a few weeks ago at the Shelter. She settled down once she was in a basket and I was able to capture her with her attitude on full display. Look at those eyes!
