Meet the newest addition to the Smith-Winchester-Tater family!  A little tabby tiger named Flynn. A buddy of mine found the dirt covered kitten in his backyard in East Atlanta and posted him on Instagram saying, “found this kitten outside my house, anybody want it? I’m calling it Kurt Russell for now” and since Dustin and I had already been talking about adopting I went to meet him and he was SO SWEET! needless to say it was love at first sight and he came home with me and met Dustin who also fell for him and Tater who wasn’t as big of a fan but has learned to “love” the little dude in small steps.
He had his first check up with the vet today and got a clean bill of health, a few shots and we found out he’s around 10 weeks old. He’s a lot more hyper active than any of my previous kittens but super fun and playful! My favorite thing he does is perch on shoulders and I’ve already taken lots of pics with him sitting on my friends like a parrot! 
All of the above photos were taken with my 50mm 1.4 lens with no edits, even the black & white one was shot in monochrome-LOVE how they turned out. it’s been quite difficult to catch him sitting still so I was happy to get him being sweet and innocent! 
While some of my friends are having babies, I on the other hand am not quite there, I’ll take a feisty feline for now!

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas yesterday! The last few days have consisted of a healthy serving of rum balls and toffee, home videos, Catchphrase, comfy clothes and lots of laughter around the Smith house in Bamaland. Figured I’d let my Instagram snaps recap this holiday season.
