You can’t tell from her photo but Latte the cat is so shy that her person almost didn’t call me for a photo session because she was afraid it would never work. I’m so glad we gave it a go because Latte was a total sweetheart!

Latte has been with her person since she was a kitten. She was adopted with another kitten named Mocha. Sadly, Mocha passed away at too young of an age and Latte has been an only cat ever since. Latte and Mocha are such delicious-sounding names. Bonus points for thinking up these names 15 years ago – before there was a Starbucks on every corner!

Here are a few fun facts about Latte:

Breed & age: Long haired tiger stripe, 15 1/2 years old
