5 Pointz was a hub of creativity in Queens, NY where graffiti artists from all over the world came to showcase their massive murals and images. This cat was spotted hanging out at a 5 Pointz fundraiser, which was organized to gain support for protection of the outdoor art museum. Unfortunately, a few months after this photo was taken the entire building was whitewashed and all the art destroyed overnight…
This feral cat was spotted near Akaka Falls on the island of Hawai’i. She had a litter of kittens who looked to be a little too old to still be with their momma. Despite their age, she was extremely vigilant over her kittens. When one of them began to cry she immediately went to them, after sharply looking at me to make sure I did not follow.
This is Teacup, a male cat that lives on a hacienda in the Yucatán Peninsula. It may seem unfitting for a male cat to be named Teacup, but oddly enough it fit him due to his small frame and playful personality. Sometimes he would get in a mischievous mood and the momma cat would put him in his place- cuffing him if he pestered her too much.
While in the Yucatán Peninsula, I stayed on a hacienda that was home to many farm cats. This cat was pregnant with kittens, most likely not her first litter. She spent her days sleeping under the meticulously woven thatched roofs of the old hacienda buildings, resting and waiting for her litter to arrive.
