Photography: National Geographic – Oct 2022

A dark grey Canadian sphynx cat looks directly at the camera with green eyes and his ears turned to point forward. The image is surrounded by a yellow border and overlaid with the headline, "Minds of their own: Some animals have complex emotions— much like us"

Minds Of Their Own – Ed, a Canadian sphynx cat,

is curious, outgoing, affectionate, and highly responsive to human emotion. He’s also talkative: Say his name, he purrs. In this portrait, his forward-tilted ears show he’s alert and his narrowed pupils that he’s relaxed.
