New Pictures of George Hardy and his Cats

A few of you may wonder what I look like.  Here is a picture taken in March, 2004, at my 67th birthday party.

Both cats are new to me, although they are "seniors".  They came from Caring for Creatures here in Palmyra, VA.  They came with names already.  They do not want them changed.
Zoie is pictured here.  She is 16.

Abbie is 12.  I took another picture, and used MS's Digital Image program to bring some contrast out of a pure black cat.  Even her claws are black!
Taking a good picture of an all-black cat is a lot more difficult than you might think.  My "automatic" camera went crazy; it was unable to either focus or get a light reading.
