Looking for Alaska - Pet Photography in the Yarra Valley

I'd like to introduce the newest member of our family, Alaska! We adopted Alaska from the RSPCA last month, but she's been stubborn and refused to let me get photos until now! 
She is 10 years old and was found as a stray with severe skin cancer on her ears, and a mouth full of rotten teeth which had to be removed. She's not allowed outside (which is fine by me - cats eat birds!) and we have to make sure she doesn't spend too much time sunbaking in front of windows... She still has 4 teeth left, so she manages pretty well with food, we just have to soak her dry food to soften it a little first...

She's a smoochy puss, loves to cuddle up on your lap, although she isn't a fan of being held. She's still a little wary of the kids (but who can blame her? I am too at times haha), and hides most of the time when they're around, but she comes out for cuddles in the evenings and also all day when they're at school. 
Chester was very excited to meet her thinking he had a new friend, but she was very quick to explain to him that she doesn't need a doggy friend haha, they now mostly just ignore eachother ;)
