Cats On Tuesday--Musing on Catography
A friend emailed me lots of photos of painted cats, and the one I selected for today's post is my favorite. I imagine these are photo- shopped for I don't think a cat would allow it's butt to be painted, nor can I imagine anyone holding a cat down long enough to paint such a design! Anela would have hightailed it the moment I picked up a paint brush.
I enjoy all the great photos of "Cats in Sinks", but know Anela will never make it to this website. She would NEVER lie in a sink long enough for me to take a photo as these happy cats do in their sinks. Trying to get Anela to pose for a camera isn't easy. She was born wild (feral) and retains much of this wildness. She doesn't much care for cameras pointed at her. Nor does she like being picked up and cat-handled--having purchased the flea creme that you rub into the back of a cat's neck awhile back, I've been holding-off doing so because I recall what a battle it's been in the past, and I'm procrastinating.
The VERY best opportunity to get a photo of her is when she's sleeping such as the one below. I've sunken to become a cat-arazzi because of her distaste for getting her photo taken.
