evolution of the cat

This exotic looking creature is Yoshi. She is a Cornish Rex cat, a breed that originated in Cornwall, England when a genetic mutation created this sleek, nearly hairless breed. The very short hair she has is soft and downy and a pleasure to touch. Yoshi was quite curious about my camera. While she was examining it I took her portrait. We were in a darkened room as you can see by the size of her pupils. With her large eyes and ears and intelligent curiosity she looked like a visitor from another planet.
