Cats

Cat & Mouse

“When my cats aren’t happy, I’m not happy. Not because I care about their mood but because I know they’re just sitting there thinking up ways to get even.”
-Percy Bysshe Shelley

Cooper daydreams about the day he finally kills Shredrick, his nearly-destroyed mouse, who’s literally been hanging on by a thread these last few weeks.

Layla’s Look (One-Eyed Disdain)

After scolding one’s cat one looks into its face and is seized by the ugly suspicion that it understood every word. And has filed it for reference.
–Charlotte Gray

This morning I decided to capture a few photos using my mirrorless Fujifilm X-T1 (love this camera!), a couple of stacked MagMod MagGrid flash modifiers on a Nikon SB-910 flash and my least willing in-home subject, Layla. Doesn’t she look happy? #MadeWithMagMod

Cooper

“Who are you talking to?” said the King, coming up to Alice, and looking at the Cat’s head with great curiosity.
“It’s a friend of mine – a Cheshire cat,” said Alice: “allow me to introduce it.”
“I don’t like the look of it at all,” said the King, “however, it may kiss my hand, if it likes.”
“I’d rather not,” the Cat remarked.
“Don’t be impertinent,” said the King, “and don’t look at me like that!”

“And how do you know that you’re mad?”
“To begin with,” said the Cat, “a dog’s not mad. You grant that?”
“I suppose so,” said Alice.
“Well then,” the Cat went on, “you see a dog growls when it’s angry, and wags its tail when it’s pleased. Now I growl when I’m pleased, and wag my tail when I’m angry. Therefore I’m mad.”
― Lewis Carroll,
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

Happy New Year!

“A cat’s New Year dream is mostly a bird! Don’t be like a cat; in the New Year, dream something that you have never dreamed! Target for new things!”
― Mehmet Murat ildan

I’d like to wish all my readers a happy new year and much success in 2016!

Being the cat fanatic I am, I thought it only appropriate to start the year off with a cat-featuring blog post. Cali and Waffles are rescues that are grateful for better lives off the street and in forever homes in 2016.
