Batgirl....live and in person...well sort of








This is for Vee who took the most gorgeous picture of her calico cat. I would like to know how she managed to do it. I have pictures of all of my cats buried somewhere in my older posts, especially my fat Siamese, Pyewackit. Pyewackit would stop everything he's doing to get his picture made. He seems to know what the camera is is and what it does and when it does it. I remember a cartoon from my childhood about a horserace and two horses were nose to nose and it was a "photo finish". So one horse has to stop and grin for the camera! Well, that's Pye, he's a camera hog. But Batgirl, my little calico (I know, they're all little in comparison to Captain Gi-Normus also known as Pye) doesn't like the camera, runs from the camera, hides from it in fact. I wanted to take a picture of her this morning so that another cat lover of many out there, Vee, could compare those luscious kitty faces(http://ahavenforvee.blogspot.com/) I spotted her in the computer room, grabbed the camera and snapped...and she moved. I talked her into posing nicely and snap...and she moved again. I had Mac come in and hold her and she refused to look into that camera...what is with that girl? Mac said she told him I'm trying to steal her soul. Hmm...I'll have to reassure her that her soul is perfectly safe in my hands...I'd let no harm come to it! So, Vee...here's a bit of what we went through with young Madame...only wanted one picture you understand...but you know how it is when you're working with a star!

She is lovely! Such beautiful markings she has...bold and bright...and her eyes match her coat so well...incredible. And, pardon my asking, is she a little bit whacked, too? Not like you! No, no, I mean like other calicos?

Have a great week.
Blessings,

She's so cute. Love her coloring and her eyes look like coffee with cream. Cats are too much fun and each one has it's own personality!

You need to post more pictures of that Frankenstein/patchwork kittie. I've never seen anything like that. It's like 4 or 5 cats melded into one. Love it!

What a silly cat! My animals are just the opposite they almost always pose themselves when I get the camera out. She is a pretty girl!
