18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Princess Emerging from the Wilderness

Princess Emerging from the Wilderness Princess was a stray cat who captivated me with her grace and majestic poses. Her fur was black and white. Her white legs and lower white body seemed to be emerging from her beautiful black cape on top of her torso. Princess was a loving momma cat. She took care of her 3 kittens until they were 3 months old. At that time, the kittens were successfully trapped and taken to a shelter for adoption. Princess stopped by my driveway at the same time everyday. At 6:00 pm, I knew she'd be there patiently waiting for some loving talk and food! Princess was peaceful, sweet and just a beautiful cat. She never hissed at me, even when she was around her kittens.
