I recently had the honor of photographing the wonderfully sweet Sahara. Sadly, she passed away on Sunday. Adorably petite with the colors of the Sahara desert, she was 17 years old and suffering from kidney failure. Her mom had noticed a change in her behavior over the past year and wanted some photographs of her while she was still happy and active. As much as the illness and death of a beloved pet is so difficult, it’s an added tragedy to realize there are no photographs to remember them by in a happier stage of their life.
Sahara was the queen to a household of cats that also includes the very curious & personable Little Mama, the shy & sweet Baby, and the independent Momo. She is greatly missed by her mom and her lovely cat family.
