A Good Companion


A Cat Named Jazz

Jazz is my constant companion when I am home. She follows me from room to room, races with me as I go up or down the stairs, and sleeps at the foot of my bed. Several times each day, especially in the evening when I sit down to use the computer, she climbs into my lap and pats my cheek with her paw until I give her a little attention.

I like this portrait of her, with the natural light from a north window providing a gentle sidelight, and the black background letting her emerge from the darkness.  She looks a bit mysterious. And she is!

    An excellent photograph, love the light and darkness and the highlights on the eye. Jazz is an excellent poser, and thanks for sharing.

    Jazz. I’m officially adopting Jazz as one of my many web cats since I cannot have a real cat, thanks to Baylee. Jazz is gorgeous.

      You may share Jazz, she has enough love to warm a lot of hearts.

        Awwwww….thanks, Bo! Give Jazz a kiss on his head from me, okay?

    What a beauty! I’m still grieving for ours whom we lost just before Christmas.

      Our last cat, Eureka, died on Christmas Eve two years ago. That’s a hard time to lose a dear pet. Took me a year and a half to decide to get another, and I must say, Jazz has been quite delightful.

    Ah….reminds me of our “Zack in the Black” from years gone by. Great portrait.

    She’s got the most gorgeous eyes!! Wonderful portrait of your constant companion.

    She is a beauty. I have one that does the same thing. In fact she is next to me now crying at me to pick her up.

    A very mysterious lady. Nice shot.

    I like her name…how precious. Our cats both went missing back at the beginning of this year. Both were solid black…I miss them so much. Thanks for sharing this mysterious but sweet photo.

    Hey Bo, I love the picture of Jazz. She is beautiful and so is the photo
