"Cat Ladies in Glasses” is a portrait collection of seriously adorned felines.

Diligently crafted, each regal Cat Lady reigns over her imaginary land with worthy poise. They are simple, they are complex, and they have stories you could merely take a wild guess at from their ornate, and sometimes stoic, presence.
