Pushkin - A Tiger Barn Cattery Guest

This Easter break was Peachy Pushkin's second visit to Tiger Barn Cattery. There was some great light for a portrait, and we captured his peachy beauty just perfectly.
Pushkin lives with Sandy in Castle Cary, Somerset.
He doesn't like other cats, anyone who walked past was given a little low growl.
We soon discovered we needed to take him out of his chalet to play as his purr is too loud for an enclosed space and it starts with one stroke.
Pushkin is unique and rare in several ways, he's a beautiful peach coloured tabby, he has a great name and we think that his Father was a squirrel.
It's the most amazing tail ever, double jointed so it can flip flat against his back ... it's like a handle that you should just be able to use him as a furry-purry handbag.

 That was back in 2012 and now it's 2015 and he still stays here regularly … He is a total star in Tiger Barn Cattery, Somerset. He loves to be stroked, but boy, he has one of the most amazing reactions I’ve seen here to grooming. Rolling about, purring wildly. He likes other cats now too, doesn't growl at anyone he sees but it's humans he loves most … The joke about his double jointed tail is still funny; that "his Father was a squirrel." and we now call him "Handbag Cat"

When he became a cat we snatched another portrait … With a quizzical look and warm orange sunlight.
