aka Middy aka Middy-Mister
10 years old
It became apparent after Midnite fell seriously ill several months ago, I do not have any good photos of him. Being black, he has been difficult to capture clearly; plus he does not like his photo taken. I promised myself to resolve this situation.
In addition, I did not realize until a few weeks ago, his inner right ear is spotted. During a visit to the hospital, the clinic light struck his ear a certain way, and behold, I noticed the spots. I thought something was wrong … immediately mentioning it to my husband. He informed me, the spots have always been there. I remarked “He is 10 years old, TEN, and I am just noticing??” Mind you, it is not that I haven’t had oodles of up close and personal time with him all these years. Why hadn’t my eyes caught on to this? I felt like a neglectful mom! “Well,” I informed Ray, I have to remedy not only capturing him in more photos, but including his cute leopard spots.” ~~~~
Since he was shaved twice in the past few months, I tried to wait for some of his fur to fill in … but the sun was hitting his ears just right, I grabbed my camera and started shooting. This is from the first set! Of course, he was covered in dust! 😀 Will keep shooting until I capture his personality!
