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

And all the neat curtains are drawn with care,

Is suddenly purring there”

Happy Caturday!

“We…we could be friends.’

We COULD be rare specimens of an exotic breed of dancing African elephants, but we’re not. At least, I’M not.”
― Neil Gaiman, Coraline

Some of you may have already seen this photo on my Facebook page, but as it’s Saturday — or “Caturday”, according to your preference — I thought I’d share it here, too. I had a few minutes to get to know Charley while shooting an in-home client portrait last week, and she kindly agreed to let me take her photo.

"Charley", Nikon D800, ISO 200, f/5.6 at 1/160 sec., 300mm

Curiosity is the very basis of education and if you tell me that curiosity killed the cat, I say only the cat died nobly.

Ella Phzztgerald

Continuing the “Cat Week” theme…

Ella is a Tortoiseshell, the term applied to describe her unique coloring. Almost always female, Tortoiseshells — or Torties — are typically known for having personalities as distinctive as their coloring of amber, black, cinnamon, brown and red; there’s no white as there is in a Calico. A fireball of personality, Ella is strong-willed, quite vocal and very territorial. She will hiss, spit and growl to demonstrate her displeasure with anything and everything from her chair being occupied to the water in her water bowl being the wrong temperature. She has been known to actually stomp her feet, spit and wail when something isn’t to her liking. This has earned her the name Ella Phzztgerald — “phzzt” being a phonetic approximation of the sound of her displeasure.

Lest this give you the wrong idea, Ella is also one of the sweetest and most affectionate cats you could ever hope to meet — once she gets to know you. Initially quite wary of strangers, she hides until she decides it’s safe to let you see her. Once that happens, though, it’s pure entertainment and affection from that point on.
