Hehe :) Sometimes you really do wonder what is going through their minds when they're constantly looking down a tube of glass.
He is pretty vocal with his facial expressions. He will put up with the camera for a few minutes, then turn away, and or walk away. That is exactly what happened here.

No2 reminds me of most of the girls I chatted up when I was single.
ROFL :smile: :smile: :smile:

#2. I love how cats show you the butt when they are mad or being aloof. Its almost the "if I cant see you...."

Great shots!
You should have seen the way he walked across the yard the other day when there was another cat in the yard. He deliberately put one paw in front of the other very slowly, and his neck and head were very stiff as to say, I’m not really here. If he is upset with you, he will turn his back on you, and just sit there.

I usually try and catch my cat when she is asleep. I can sneak in a few before she wakes, then it is an adventure to get many more. We try and pose her with props at times. What a hassle! Once I took 250 shots and had only three keepers, and they weren't that good. :frown: I also had my film camera with me, and I took two quick shots with it and they were probably the best of the day. Dogs are so much easier to shoot. My little Scottie will sit patiently for at least 45 minutes before getting bored and antsy. Wish the kitty would be so cooperative, would make it much easier to photograph. She is such a beauty, just hard to photograph. I like your shots, they are precious, show the personality of the kitty.

Thanks for looking. He used to put up with the camera all the time, but I guess he just had enough. This was the first time I’ve tried shooting him for at least a couple of months, and he had enough real quick. He tends to sleep in darker areas or on top of me, so it’s difficult to shoot him while he is sleeping. I did get this one back in February. I think cats can sleep in any position.

These are terrific!
We had a Siamese cat when I was a kid and he would give us his back when we got home from vacation. If you went around to the front of him, he'd turn around. I'd love another one some day. Such personalities.

He did just that the first time I went anywhere for a few days. When I got home, he walked away, and sat down facing the garage with his back to me. Took more than a day before he would resume normal relations with me. Today, he brought me a humming bird. I didn’t think he could catch one. Normally, he ignores them. I have a feeder in the back yard, and he never pays any attention to them. He dropped the bird at my feet, and I put it out of his reach, or at least where he couldn’t see it cause it was still breathing. Eventually, it flew away.
