Micky the Rag Doll Cat

Here’s my second cat photo. This one is of Micky, a Ragdoll Cat rescue taken care of by a very good friend here in Orlando. Micky has a brother named Charlie, another rescued Ragdoll, who is shyer than Micky. Charlie was abused by his former owner before he was rescued, so I understand Charlie and I give him a wide berth when I visit. Perhaps one day he’ll grant me a proper audience and I can get some photos of him.

I was only able to get any photos of Micky, and only when Micky wanted to be photographed. What’s interesting about Mickey are his blue eyes and dark face, which remind me of a Siamese. But it’s the long fluffy coat that mark him as a Ragdoll, as well as the fact he came from Florida Ragdoll Rescue.

Once again the photo was taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 with the M.Zuiko 45mm/1.8 wide open. I worked a bit with the RAW in Lightroom 6. For me there’s enough depth of field and sharpness around the nearer eye, while the background (the living room) is nicely out of focus.
