Sheep’s Head Cat

Sheep's Head Cat

If you’ve been out to Sheep’s Head in Co Cork in the last year you may have come across this beautiful, friendly cat near the car park. I presume she lives in a nearby house. She had no problem with us stroking her and making friends with her but here she was warily watching some wandering cattle closely.

The Cat Yawns

The Cat Yawns

Zara yawns as she ponders the meaning of life. No. She just wants to know when her next meal will be.

This was taken just over 10 years ago when Zara was but a kitten, she’s a little bigger now! I shot this with my ancient Sony F717, my favourite camera of all time. It’s “only” 5MP, and horrendous at night but it had a cool infra red mode and I loved how the body of the camera swivelled around the lens. Unfortunately the motherboard in it failed prompting me to jump ship to a Canon DSLR!
