Cats. Nature's joy. Sometimes, nature's pain in the ass. But mostly, joy.

I downloaded some new Photoshop actions recently from the fabulous Kim Miller (one of my favorite photographers - who also happens to share my affinity for cats!). Getting new Photoshop actions, for me, is like Christmas. I get super excited and I go thumbing through old photos to see what I can experiment with. To my surprise and delight I rediscovered some old-ish photos I took of the beloved cat, Miaoxin (pronounced Meow-shin...well, that's how I pronounce it...), one of the resident cats of Austin Zen Center.

Let me tell you. This cat is the bee's knees. Sweeeeeeet as honey. And a total ham. See below.
