The Eyes Have It

Friday Cat Blogging

Are you serious?

[Editor: Property didn’t believe I could take a picture of her without a flash, which previously allowed her to close her eyes.

Property has beautiful eyes.

I remember one picture I took of the late Tabitha, without flash, using the old Canon 20D on loan from Catherine. I returned the camera to her, and it was subsequently stolen from her, along with some other photo equipment, in a house break-in. (That door has been beefed up considerably since then.) The right camera really can make all the difference, as your picture of Property amply demonstrates.

She’s an utter beauty!

Such big beautiful eyes. And ears to match. I’ll pit any of our mongrel alley cats against any number of pure-bred snob kittehs for good looks.

I will thank you on her behalf, and this is the type of picture that convinced me to buy the Nikon, because the old camera just couldn’t do this. You can even see the little tufts on the tips of her ears that come to a point, for no known reason.

She would appreciate all the attention, but you couldn’t find that out unless you touched her, because she is nearly mute, my stealth purrer.

Most of the ‘beauty’ of cats is in their personalities, Badtux. That said, it is hard to beat the glossy black coat of TMF, which is maintained by him, not a series of ‘spa treatments’ that show cats receive. And I remember you specifically went looking for a camera that would show what you saw when you looked at it, not the uniform black that most cameras default to.

Awwww. Property is such a beautiful kitty. It’s good to see such pretty eyes wide open. With her markings, she looks like the kitty that drank all the cream.

Faintest shadow of a frown… perplexed as to why there’s no charging noise before the blinding flash of the clicky box?

That is one cute kitty!

OWL, she is actually a ‘three color’ as the area around her nose and mouth are the only white, the other light markings are beige or fawn colored as is her stomach.

It has to be something like that, Ellroon, i.e. the sounding of the capacitor charging that was tipping them off. This one is also black instead of silver, so she wasn’t sure what I was doing.
