2018 ‘Kittenhood’ photography competition winning image – photographed by Francesca Barbero from Italy
‘This picture was taken in 2015 at ‘Romeo e Pucci’ – a cat shelter in Cuneo, a small Italian city. This shelter, founded by Adriano Marangio, has a nice peculiarity. It is made up of old camper vans and motorhomes where the cats live and wait to be adopted. It’s like a small city for cats.
I can’t remember the name of this playful kitten because thankfully he was adopted soon after the picture was taken.’
Francesca’s winning image features in the 2019 Kittenhood Calendar which is on sale to raise funds for International Cat Care’s welfare work.
