So I figured for maximum cuteness, Kitties were the go. But I don't have any; so the closest I could get to taking some images of Kitties was to visit the Cat haven, so off I went (I pre-arranged the visit beforehand)

I've never been to a cat haven before, and I was truly quite saddened to see how many were there, especially the older cats that can stay there for up to a year. There were about 2 dozen or so baby Kitties, and I shot around 100 photo's. The lighting was not the best, so I had to do some serious brightening with this image. As well as noise reduction bc the ISO was quite high.

I love the middle kitty the most, like Johanna said, her look is so 'intense'.

I'd like to thank Chandra from the Shenton Park Cat Haven for allowing me to shoot on her premises, she was so kind to me, and is also going to use this photo on one of her publications.

OH BTW they are very well looked after at the cat haven, their little places of shelter indoors are very clean and tidy.

It is hard to compete with kittens for cuteness, but it takes more than just access to get a good shot. The image of this trio is fantastic. Very nicely done, Anita.

Congrats on the HM, Anita. I can tell from across the ocean that the little black one is the leader and instigator. It's all in the whiskers :)
