Big Cat Photographer Here

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

Cat lover here who just stumbled on this site. I'm the proud owner of a fussy 4-year old Persian named Nova who loves nothing more than to trip her human companions up. She's smaller than most Persians, as she was born without sex organs, but she acts like she is the largest creature in the world.

As for who I am, I am a film editor trying to bust in the nature documentary film industry. In 2004, I was extremely fortunate to run across two snow leopards attacking a dzo (part cow, part yak). Big cat fans will know how rare it is to encounter snow leopards in the wild. The footage was put in a short documentary and can be seen here.

Thanks for the comments and the welcome. Wasn't much of a cat lover before my encounter with the two leopards, but I have since seen the light. After I got back form my India trip, I adopted Nova, and have been happy ever since. She seems to think that she is a big cat like the leopards. No one has the heart to tell her otherwise.

Welcome! I have noticed that the smaller the cat the bigger the ego.

Are you the Matthew whose name comes up on the video? And is that your voice in the background?

Great footage. I recall seeing a short video on Planet Earth where they captured a snow leopard attacking an animal - I think it was a ram. I absolutely love any documentary that shows big cats in the wild.

Welcome to TCS!!

Welcome to TCS!!
I saw that too, it was fantastic. It was awesome watching that snow leopard carry it's prey up the side of, what appeared to be an almost verticle hill.
