This is my cat, Dakota. We got her a couple of years ago from the Southern Arizona Animal Shelter. She was already 6yrs old when we adopted her. And she is a perfect lady!
When I take pictures of my soap and jewelry, I do it in the afternoon in the dining room when there is plenty of sunlight. And she's always hanging out in the sun while I'm taking my pics.
Look at how clever she is to position herself just right so the rung from the chair is keeping the sun out of her eyes! And I love how impossibly long her front legs are, and the way she stretches them out in front of her and crosses her paws a little. So casual!
