Watson is my neighbours’ 3 month old kitten. He is very cheeky and curious and does a fantastic meercat impression.

My 2017 Cat Calendar Is Out! Street Cats of Jerusalem


On my trip to Jerusalem in April of this year, I had the pleasure of meeting the friendly feral street cats that live all over this ancient city. My new 2017 calendar has 13 beautiful images of these cats, and makes a great Christmas present for both cat lovers and animal photography aficionados. 

€0.50 of each calendar will be donated to The Kennel Klub Lanzarote, one of our local animal charities.
