All kinds of foolery, with focus on books, life and regular kitty reports
Such sweet kitties and puppy! I want to snurgle them all!
They are all so sweet. You'd love Peyton. She's a cuddler.
Izzy looks suspiciously like she's getting a second wind. Look at those wild eyes!
She actually reached out with her claws and pulled herself across the carpet, right after that. So funny. :)
Love Fi and Izzy--and the doggy is cute too :-)
Thanks, Melissa! They're all sweethearts. You'd love them, of course. :)
I'm amazed you can get them to look your way at all. As soon as I pull out my camera or phone our dog looks the other way.
Sometimes it can be a job-and-a-half trying to get a pet to pose, that's for sure. I try to just keep the camera handy so that when they do something cute I don't have to go too far. All of them are so active!
That's a fabulous picture of Fiona! Poor Izzy. Exhausted. Peyton just looks stalwart.
Thanks, Carrie. Yep, Izzy was wiped out. Peyton is funny. Eldest had just removed his feet from her back. She was his foot rest. In the typical doggy fashion, she was fine with having feet flung across her back.
These posts always make me want to get a companion kitty for my cat. She'd hate it but I'd get another cute kitty
It's tricky getting a second kitty. Ours are about 6 months apart in age and Fiona was none too pleased when the little usurper arrived, but they do get along pretty well (most of the time). Our previous cats were 2 years apart and they sort of hated each other. That sucked. Best to get siblings, if you can. I planned to, but Fiona just happened to capture my heart and then Isabel was a surprise. We're lucky they do get along with each other!
Hehehe…I smiled looking at all three of these :) I love our animal friends SO much :)
I'm glad you got a smile, Chris. Yep, they are pure joy. I sometimes wonder how I tolerated life without pets during the early years of marriage.
I love the look on Fiona's face. It's all like "What ARE you up to now??" LOL!
LOL That's a pretty accurate assessment of the look. :) Fiona's a good egg, but sometimes I think she'd like me to just leave her alone, thankyouverymuch. Cameras don't thrill her.
That's such a sweet picture of Fiona! I love how pets have such different personalities (and reactions to the camera being turned on them). Two of my pets love it and the other hates it (that would be Tiger, Fiona's look-alike).
Thanks, Alyce! It is funny how different their reactions are, isn't it? Isabel has her moments when she wants me to leave her alone, but for the most part she's just curious about the camera. It doesn't bother her a bit. Fiona would prefer that I never got out the camera. She tolerates me, though.So, that's why we don't see many photos of Tiger? :)
Very cute pets.....I like them all.
Thank you! Peyton is my "grand-dog" and the kitties are mine. Love them all. :)
I'm always so impressed by your ability to capture the animals--maybe you don't get as close as I try to. Lexi HATES to be photographed--I've been trying to get pictures of her and Elle together but she just won't have it. Ha! Oh Izzy--I'd love to bring her home with me. :)
Thanks, Trish. It varies. I usually do get in pretty close, though. The photo of Izzy was taken from about 2 or 3 feet, max. I put the camera on the carpet for that one. I get down on my belly a lot -- it's much like photographing small children, really. They move a lot and they don't always cooperate, so you have to be quick. I've found Fiona does better in natural light. If I start using flash too often, she gets irritated by the infrared light that measures distance (I usually do use automatic mode because they move so quickly). Darn about Lexi. They're so smart; if pets don't like a camera, they can be terribly stubborn.
I really love your kitties, they take the best photos.
Thanks, Amy! They are lovely animals, aren't they? No, I'm not biased. :)
Animal photos always make me feel so happy and warm inside. Thanks for sharing these with me!
Peyton is really thinking about something!!
Yeah, I have a really hard time getting pictures of Casey. She either moves right when I go to take it or she is more interested in playing with the camera...
