Feline Friday – #28 – happy birthday Pharoah


pharoah catAccording to his adoption papers, my champagne tabby Pharoah was born eleven years ago today, September 4, 2004.

This photo was taken when he first arrived in his new home at six months old, ten and a half years ago.

At the time I was studying Egyptian history in the Archaeology Program at UCLA. As he is the color of the desert sand and fond of posing in the sphynx position, I named him Pharoah.

A couple of years ago I didn’t think he would last much longer. He has an auto-immune condition common with feral cats (which manifests itself in his eye) and he wasn’t doing well.

But now he has rebounded and using yet another of his nine lives.

He is a happy cat and never complains. They say cats don’t really smile, but don’t tell that to Pharoah, as he always has a big one on his face.

I am an explorer and creative person. I've had many jobs, careers and interests... everything in life and the universe fascinates me. Born in Brighton, England, I've lived my entire adult life in Los Angeles, California. A few years ago I rediscovered photography which is a great excuse to get outside and look. I'm also in the process of re-writing some of my unpublished short stories and possibly a novel. .
