    Really nice selection of work for this post. Photographing these little guys must be fun but also challenging. Michael has done a great job with this.

    i wont call it cute for some look so lonely and some look so scary.

    I think what he is doing is fabulous. This gives them a better chance to be adopted! Great pictures of all of them. And I absolutely disagree with doreen who thinks some of them look scary??? none of them look scary. The last one with all of the kittens has one that looks like it’s ready to pounce. some cats get that focused “look” when anything is above them.
