Cat People

First of all, I want to thank you for your wonderful response in regards to the video I posted! I am so glad you liked it. I enjoyed making it and as I have been studying film for the last few years it's something I really love doing. For my next bit of video making I thought maybe I could do a questions and answers video! If you have any questions for me in regards to the clothes I wear and anything else you have wanted to know, you can ask me here or send me an email. Also, you can get a chance to laugh at my Australian accent (which isn't that Australian I've been told) so there you go! A hair tutorial might also be on the cards when I get home to Australia.

Last week on our way home from the forest (note my very sensible outdoor activities outfit!) a kitty ran up to me. She meowed at us really loudly and as I have been missing our cats back home I couldn't resist crouching down to give her a pat. Right away she climbed into my lap, and without any hesitation started rubbing herself all over me asking for pats. Her fur was filthy and matted and in some places there was none at all.

I wanted so badly to take her home and give her a bath. It's sad because she had the potential to be such a beautiful cat if she had someone to care for her. Even though she looked to be no older than six months I am fairly certain that she had recently given birth. Taking her home with us wasn't an option, but when she ran all the way home after us we gave her some sausage and sour cream that she lapped up greedily. After that she hung around outside our apartment for a while before continuing on her way.


  1. That's amazing! When a cat chooses you, it's a real honor. I love this outfit.

  2. Awww poor kitty! I probably would've taken it in and given it a bath. 2 of my 3 cats were strays!

    My question for a video is... which vintage repro clothing websites do you think have the best prices?

  3. Aww so cute! It's so sad to see. I saw lots of stray cats in Portugal. Wish they had RSPCA like we have in England xxx

  4. Beautiful you and sweet kitten :)

    My question, are you real Russian girl, when you move at Australia. Because that I didnt understood before :).
    Who is your favorite icon from past?

    I love Russia, my people are close with Russian people.

  5. Oh my goodness what a sweet kitty! I'm a huge sucker for itty bitty cats, and these shots are just adorable!

  6. Awww, you two look adorable! As Adora said, there are so many stray cats and dogs in Portugal :/

  7. Aw, that's so sweet! If only you could have kept her and cared for her... she clearly thinks you're the one for her!

  8. Aww what a cute cat! So glad you got to help it out a little bit :) I'm looking forward to a Q&A video though--and to hearing your Australian accent!

  9. You are such a lovely person. I look forward greatly to your videos!

  10. What a heartbreakingly sweet kitty - the poor, precious darling. It would have taken every fiber in my being not to take her home with me, too. How special that she got to feel your love and care for a short while, I'm sure it meant a great deal to her.

    Love this classic red and white ensemble - it's so summery and fresh! Just perfect for the kind of glorious sunshine that your photos are drenched in. Can't wait to see more videos and hear your beautiful voice, honey.

  11. Oh, poor little cat. Each animal should have someone who cares.

  12. What a poor kitten. So glad that you gave it some love and food to it. It makes me think of the poor little stray kitten that comes and visits me at my unit.
    Looking forward to seeing more videos too!

  13. More videos would be great! My questions: What is your favorite pinup brand, and does your boyfriend wear retro styles to go along with yours?

  14. What a sweet cat, poor little lovely, I can well understand you wanting to take it home with you.

  15. That is such a lovely story! and what a gentle soul you are! I think a question and answer video would be fantastic! I would love to know more about you.

    1. Favourite vintage era?
    2. Secret Talents?
    3.Biggest weakness?
    4. Photography tips?
    5. What inspires you?
    6. Favourite song in the world?
    7. What makes you happy?

  16. that's so sad about the cat, it just breaks your heart to know that you can't really do anything to help because you can't take her home with you. hopefully she'll be okay and someone will be able to take her in.

    on a happier note your video was wonderful! i hope you start doing more of them, i know it was your first but it it really showed that you've studied film and that you know about composition and how to tell a bit of a story with it. can't wait to see more of them lovely! xo

  17. Seeing unloved cats makes me sad :(

    And I so much enjoyed your video, please do it again!

  18. Ooow, that's such a sweet story! I would have wanted to take the cat with us as well. Sweet that you took good care for her! ^-^ Did you give her a name?


  19. Stunning look.

  20. Oh how dear. My cat just passed away and this made me quite happy (in a sad way, if that makes any sense). Thanks. :)
