The idea of Most Wanted Criminals and their mugshots takes on new meaning this week with my photos of the Smith felines in their close-up poses. While mugshots of arrested criminals are less than flattering, these feline photos give the message-- "Who wouldn't want a face like this to love?"
The pensive look in my cats' eyes always make me wonder what they are thinking. Their actions immediately provide the answer when they snuggle against me or reach out a paw to touch me. Their loyalty, trust and love are endearing traits that make me want to hug them and care for them as opposed to prosecuting them (although at times they can get a little mischievous!).
Enjoy my Smith family feline mugshots.

USA TODAY Bestselling Author Karen Rose Smith is an only child who delved into books at an early age. She learned about kindred spirits from Anne of Green Gables, solved mysteries with Nancy Drew and wished she could have been the rider on The Black Stallion. Yet even though she escaped often into story worlds, she had many aunts, uncles and cousins around her on weekends. Her sense of family and relationships began there. Maybe that's why families are a strong theme in her novels, whether mysteries or romances. Her 97th novel will be released in 2017.
Karen and Paddy
Readers often ask her about her pastimes. She has herb, flowers and vegetable gardens that help her relax. In the winter, she cooks rather than gardens. And year round she spends most of her time with her husband, as well as her four rescued cats who are her constant companions. They chase rainbows from sun catchers, reminding her life isn't all about work, awards and bestseller lists. Everyone needs that rainbow to chase.
Karen looks forward to interacting with readers. They can find her at the links below.
