It’s time to pass on the crown of covercat for The Neko Files header. For the past few months we’ve been enjoying the adorably quizzical face of Mary, one of the cats in the single wide.
Here is the original, unedited photo:
Mary is a photogenic cat who actually seems to like getting her picture taken. Or at least she finds the crazy biped holding a box interesting enough to stick around and stare at. She hasn’t let me touch her yet, but she’s quite content to let me get as many shots as I care to.
Leslie tells me she’s named after the lady “who fed and then captured her feral litter in Steveston about 1 1/2 years ago.” She also says that while Mary will sometimes let her stroke her, she’s still a timid girl who will often run away.
