The art of photographing your cat

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
It is so hard to get a good picture of Sooty, so on friday I asked a friend to help

Step one: Get the attention of your pet. Here I went for the tongue in ear approach...


Step two: Try some other way to get his attention. Poking usually gets a response...


Step Three despair at his lack of enthusiasm


Step Four: Try prodding his botty


Step five: Just pretend
( It flippin hurt to lay like this. Did he care? in short. NO! )

( Look! It`s a family portrait! )

I had to include a rare one of his furry little face


...and his HUGE feet


That is all. Cheerio!

Hmmm, has Sooty always had white whiskers?

Sooty is a beautiful boy. It cracks me up how indifferent he is to your prodding. I'm glad to see his handsome face and his big mitts.

Linny, he's saying "Mum, it's too hot to pose!"

I know you've had hotter weather than we have down there

Thank you! As far as I know he has. I`m waiting for his kitten pics to turn up then I will know for sure. I know his mum was a pure white Persian so maybe that`s what he inherited from her

Thank you! I wish I had a better picture of his feet. They really are like dinner plates

It has been 33 apparently but it`s pretty cool down here in the basement. He`s just being a tart!

It certainly does not! Good job too as everything now has at least 10 black hairs on.

I know! As soon as the camera comes out he closes his eyes!

He`s been sulking all day because I was babysitting and he was scared of baby!
