The facial expressions say it all…

What’s that over there? I think it moved…
These big humans are scary but they don’t seem to be as dangerous as I thought.
They must be ok if they keep bringing me foodstuffs…
We rescued a mother cat and some kittens recently. When these guys get old enough they will be found some new homes.
Fred & Ida on the day we picked them up from our local vet.
The vet asked us to look after them and rehome them.
We have already found Fred a new home, Ida has a home pending shortly. It’s good to see them find new happy homes to live in.
It takes a bit of timing to get some shots just right – dealing with the delayed press of the camera button on taking and saving the digital image – to getting the feline subject to be looking in the right direction just as the picture is taken.
One trick I do is when I am ready to take the shot (and often starting to press the shutter button) I make a small pop or hiss noise with my mouth or click my fingers just above or near the lens or direction I want the cat to face.
If they stare long enough I can then capture nice detailed shots – if they keep moving I just get more blurry pics.
I dumped a bunch of cool photos of some of the cats I have and have had onto DeviantArt.
Within 24hrs of posting and submitting to a handful of DeviantArt groups the recent batch of photos had gained a combined total of about 90 “likes” or “favs”.
So I figured I’d share them here on my blog as well.
