Maine Coon presented in this photo:
The kitten's pose couldn’t have been more perfect for this location - this young cypress root he is standing on - with him being a young kitten in the series.
When you’re growing up, you face so many challenges in life that you have to deal with — challenges that can shake you and throw you to the ground; many of those being challenges you don’t quite understand yet, and you’re trying to figure out still how to remain strong through them.
So with him being still a kitten, adopting this powerful stance and peaceful, almost meditative expression, next to these giant trees (that could represent adults or adulthood)...this showcases the courage of every child, teenager, or young adult, going through life’s many stages to whichever journey they choose to take.
For us, it is one of the most powerful images of the series. It is incredible how he looks like he is trying to imitate the trees around him.
As far as the actual location — we traveled by boat to this island, in order to take this photo. This island has some of the most unique and colorful cypress trees we’ve seen, and it creates such a mythical atmosphere to be there. You can see many fish bones in the actual picture, spread all over — these we found there as well — and they can imply a nest area for the kitten; his safe haven growing up.
