Today we celebrate my tabby cat Mika’s adoption day as her birthday. Mika was adopted ten years ago and is now approximately 13 years old. Happy Birthday to my tabby girl and wishes for many more!
Ok, not literally daily but I do find myself taking a lot of pics of my girls. First, because they’re always around. LOL And second, because dammit, I think they’re adorable. Plus, cats are a great way to practice photography because they move a lot, they’re quick, you have to really get a good lock [...]
Because the internet is powered by cats. And because my girls make awesome photography subjects. Click either image for larger. – Both were taken with my Canon “Nifty Fifty” (50mm f/1.8) lens. I find it takes awesome cat photos with very crisp detail. I’m sure Canon didn’t develop the lens specifically in mind for cat [...]
What’s so amusing about cats is that, big or small, cats are all so very similar. You can see the same kinds of actions in big cats that you do your little household pet. (Just on a much larger scale! LOL) For example, one of the tigers at Animal Kingdom was cranky because her dinner [...]
Playing catch-up in photos… I managed to get the village up around the tree the night before my craft market but I still haven’t gotten my monorail up yet: Of course, you know what that means. Tree + village = Gracie! The craft market went great. Not only did I have a pleasant amount of [...]
I finally had a chance to decorate my Christmas tree last night! I haven’t finished the village and monorail yet but at the very least, lights and ornaments are up! I took some pics last night of it and thought I’d share. ~ ~ I shared this one on facebook, but for those who aren’t [...]
Mika approves of our Christmas Tree and tree skirt. Now that we have feline approval, we can proceed with the decorating.
First off, Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans! Hope you’ve had a nice day, hopefully with good food and friends/family. My day was one of those good and bad sorta things. Good Thing Love got up early this morning and did the 5k Turkey Trot. It’s a huge race they do in Clearwater (like 15,000 [...]
Canon has a 50mm f/1.8 lens that’s known as the “Nifty Fifty” because it’s a great little lens for cheap. It’s like $110 right now on amazon for example. With savvy shopping, you can often even find it for less. The lens is known for being tack sharp and great for portraits and other detail [...]
I just don’t feel like writing a proper entry, so here’s two cat photos to tide you over instead. So, there ya go. Kitties for the (filler) win.
In honor of the opening ceremonies of the Olympics tonight, the cats wanted to share their gold medal performance in the Synchronized Napping event. Go Team USA Napping Cats! (This was the exact same day, just about an hour apart. Technically, it was also about a month ago but it’s too funny not to share.)
And…since Gracie tends to be the one who’s picture most often graces the blog here (it’s just because she sits more still and is therefore easier to photograph; unlike Mika, who the minute you point the camera at her, promptly gets up and comes over to you making for a total brown blur of a [...]
And because even I’m sick of talking about healthcare here’s a cute pic of Gracie in her classic “cat loaf” position: When in doubt, go for cute. And Gracie has cute in spades.
Of course, I don’t really know Mika’s real birthday, but April 27th is her adoption day so it’s the day I celebrate her birthday. This year makes her approximately 12. (Again, because she was an adult cat when we adopted her, we have to guesstimate based on what her info said from the SPCA.) Happy [...]
