Shan cat and the vase of camellias

I cut a bouquet of camellias this morning because we are expecting a hard freeze tonight and I'd like to enjoy at least a few blooms for a few days. Because I'm working from home today, I put the vase on the dining room table right in my field of vision.

Coming back with my tea, what vision should I see, but a white cat with a white camellia in his mouth. Having plucked his prey from the herd, Shan was still sitting in the middle of the table next to the vase.

Russell-cat is usually my plant-thief. Apparently Shan liked the white-on-white aesthetic better. Or maybe Russell just hasn't noticed them yet.
