Today’s picture is from the archives. It’s lilac-point Pushkin just before we got married in October 1998. As a young man, he was the most athletic and skilled cat I’ve ever owned. Among other tricks, he not only retrieved like a dog (which Siamese often will), he would also catch small objects with his paws in mid-air and put them into his mouth before he landed. I wish I’d had a Flip camera then.
January 2nd’s photograph shows 14 year-old Pushkin as he is today.
