When do you WISH you had a camera handy?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Do you ever have those moments when your furbaby is looking entirely too cute but you don't have a camera handy? Here are my 2 recent moments:
*I had to work late Friday night. When I got home, there was Eponine, curled up asleep on top of a sleeping Bradley. Of course she jumped up and the shot was gone by the time I got to my camera
*The other moment was today (I have been home sick all day). Eponine was curled up on top of this blanket on the couch (it's velvet with feathers around the edges). Well, I wrapped her up in the blanked so all I could see was her head surrounded by tons of feathers. Too cute! So I had the perfect shot...go for the camera...and the batteries are dead As God as my witness, I WILL get a picture of her in that pose one day soon!
What are your "Wish I had a camera handy" moments with your kitties?

when Godzilla chases any toy-on-a-string, he flings himself through the air like an NFL receiver trying to catch the winning toughdown (complete with the single arm outstretched). He leaps, flips, soars, and it's all so fast that my camera just can't keep up, if I even have it within reach.

That's a big problem; it is almost impossible to capture their athleticism on camera!

It actually happened to me this morning. Chloe discovered playing with and drinking water from a faucet. I was so bummed I didn't have the camera, but I knew if I moved and got it she would have followed me and the moment would have been lost. Instead I watched her and laughed as quietly as I could. It was so darn cute!

I would also LOVE to catch one of her Godzilla moments.

Now that she's discovered the joys of dripping water, you'll have to keep a camera near the bathroom so that we can see Chloe in action!

Sierra makes the cutest face sometimes when she's taking a bath. She'll look up with me with her little tongue still stuck out from licking, so sweet! She only does this for a couple of seconds, so I can never get to the camera! Also, when she's playing in her paper bag and she'll peek her little face just a little ways out out! When I try to get the camera, she gets distracted.

Those mid-bath faces are so cute! Hopefully you'll be able to capture these moments on camera one day

I wish someone was in the room to take the picture when Malakai is sleeping on my chest... or on the pillow next to my head...

Those are all so cute!! I'd love to see Sierra peeking out of the bag, I love watching kitties-in-the-bag! My boys, Joey & JC, have several cute games but stop playing as soon as they see the camera. For instance, they press the fax machine's & the printer's buttons until the machine spits out a piece of paper & catch the paper. They play bi-level tag through the trenches that the plumbers have left in the middle of the floor; Joey jumps on top of a plastic bin filled with dirt, and knocks off dirt clumps, and JC tries to catch them before the dirt hits the floor.

I am ALWAYS trying to catch a pic of Waffle mid-yawn. I think she knows this though she either refuses to yawn until I've left or will turn her head and do it so I can't get a good shot. She must think she's real cute for that.
The other times I wish I had one is when Waffle is freaking out. She'll jump so high in the air and do all sorts of crazy tricks and I can never catch her!!!

There's just TOO many times that I wish I had my camera ready!!

Every night when I get in the bed, Thomas jumps up there and gets in his position......snuggled up next to me with his head laying on my right shoulder and a paw outstretched over my chest. He just purrs so loud and gets so comfy....that I would love to have a picture of that.

Oh and I'd love to get pictures of Cooper doing his "ninja" moves! It's hilarious....he jumps up in the air and turns around at the same time.....looks just like a little ninja!

I would love to get a picture of Princess and Patsy cuddling together. Princess does not like Patsy to get with 5 feet of her so on the rare occasion they do cuddle if there is even the slightest noice Princess is gone. I think in the 8 years I've had both of them they have only cuddled 2 or 3 times.

Ok here's something new that Cooper just did that I wish I'd had a picture of......

I was sitting here at my computer reading the posts here at TCS when he jumped up onto the back of my computer chair. That's not new...he always does that. But this time he started rubbing his head against my head....and then he layed his front paws on my shoulder while rubbing his head against my face and giving me kisses.....all the while....purring like crazy in my ear. Wonder what got into him tonight?

Just a few minutes ago I wished I had a camera. Coco was sticking her head through our verticle blinds and it was just too cute!

I had Pepper and Scooter on one of their supervised outside visits, and Pepper decided Scooter was too close to my parked car. She grabbed him by the scruff and tried to drag him back to where they were playing. He is nearly full grown now, but Pepper still thinks of him as her baby. He was howling in protest, but he finally came with her. It was hilarious!

Samwise sleeps in the cutest positions unfortunately he wants to be right next to me touching me or on me and of course wakes up the moment I reach for the camera. Gandalf on the other hand will snuggle into my lap when I'm on the computer and cuddle in close to me and nap half on my lap half in my arms.

Scooter: Aw maw, let me go plaaaaaaaaaaay! There are birdies to chase!
Pepper: Now son, mother knows best!
Scooter: (in whiny, South Park Eric Cartman voice) But moooooooooooooooooom
Pepper: (grabbing onto Scooter by the scruff of his neck) In now or I'm putting you in time out!

Here is my favorite..
Mike (my fiancee) brings home his football cards from the hobby store in a LITTLE bag.
After one of his trips, the empty bag was left between us on the couch. Mini, of course, has to stick her nosy little nose in it, & it gets stuck on her head! So she just sits there on the couch with this tiny bag over her head, while we are laughing so hard. I ended up taking it off because I felt bad about us laughing at her, so I never got the camera.

Everytime I look at Sash I wish I had a camera.
