My friend Anne-Marie Kalus, who has travelled with me in search of tigers and leopards in India, and more leopards in Sri Lanka, is an ardent felinophile. She is also a wonderful photographer of animals, both in the wild and in captivity. To complement my post on India's cats last Friday, she has kindly let me reproduce some of her photos.
More of Anne's portraits of cats and images of wildlife from around the world may be found on her Flickr site.
