Koltsovo,Selivanovo district. The Guardian Of The Village

Museum of Wooden Architecture
This is a kind of village that accumulates everything that has preserved from the 18th and 19th centuries until our times, has not been destroyed by fires, and has not been dismantled for firewood or broken during hard times. The streets of the village are made up of houses and other buildings brought from various places of Vladimir Region, while the whole village is dominated by high domes of wooden churches and vanes of windmills.
This cat is the descendant of a feline race of the 19th century
Today is highly respected and revered by anyone
The cats were brought here to defend villages from mice

1/100s f/4.1 at 9.9mm iso125 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

il est magnifique mais d'après son regard je vois qu'il est un peu contrarié d'être photographié.
Le cadrage a ras du sol est superbe.

Beautiful portrait! I have had several cats with this coloring - all females. V

Lovely portrait. If it were bred, it could produce kittens of all those colors. A regular feline rainbow! Voted.
