This week's featured feline is a gorgeous Oriental Shorthair, whose owner delights in taking stunning photographs of her kitty muse!
“Usyaka is an Oriental Shorthair cat and she is three years old. I met her when she was 5 months old. By that time, I had already been into photography for a while so it was only natural that she became my model when we started living together.

She figured out that the camera is my important toy, so when I play with it she wants to be a part of it. Whenever I try to take pictures of something else, I end up with photos of Usyaka instead because she wants to be in front of the camera. Eventually I created a blog where I publish her photos.
She talks a lot and she has a range of tones and voices. She recently mastered a question intonation. Maybe she learned that she gets a more interesting response when her 'mew' sounds like 'mew???'
Most of the time she plays and researches. Even now while I'm typing this she's pressing the keys together with me. She is interested in everything I do and she tries to do it with me. When she's interested in things, she touches them with her "hands."
When she wants to play but I don't, she follows me around the flat with her toy in her mouth. She's extremely affectionate. She purrs when she's petted or when she's just talked to. She purrs when she simply finds something amusing about her humans.
She is an amazing creature and we treat her like a real person."
