Saturday/ King Leonardo

It’s Caturday— and may I present my favorite picture of Leonardo, the Burmese cat that my brother and sister-in-law used to have.
Leonardo lived out the last of his nine cat lives some years ago, reaching a grand old age of 17.

Leonardo striking a regal pose. This photo is from 1997, taken with the same Olympus D-320L that I had mentioned in yesterday’s post. Most modern Burmese are descendants of one female cat called Wong Mau, which was brought from Burma to America in 1930 and bred with American Siamese. Originally, all Burmese cats were dark brown (sable), but now they come with coats in a wide variety of colors. [Wikipedia].
