Penny As A Kitten

My foster nephew NP was my son's roommate, and is still renting space at the other place now that Emrack is on the road. He has been going thru the stuff he has spread thru the upstairs apartment in preperation for our arrival, and just found some old snapshots of Penny, the older of his two cats. The first one is simply the oddest cat photo I have ever seen. He doesn't look like an actual cat, but like a relief model laid on the floor. I have no idea how they managed to get the effect.

Nowadays Penny is a mature cat who would never be caught in such an undignified sprawl, and has none of the neotenous look which is what we love about kittens. He is still affectionate, stopping by for brief petties whenever I visit upstairs, unlike NP's other cat Swabbie, the notorious double will bite, who has so far managed to avoid being photographed.
