Post 708: Dougy poses nicely…

Dougy’s  had little blog exposure, so today you get a Dougy extravaganza, a photo shoot taken to show you Andy didn’t tear all his fur off! 

To help him feel better about having his photo taken  — no one in my family likes to be photographed, even the critters… — I let him select the setting.

Yes, you can bet Dougy wanted to be on his ottoman for the photo shoot!!

"Say kitty litter and mouse cheese!"  Dougy smiles for the camera.

“Say ‘kitty litter and mouse cheese!'”
Dougy smiles for the camera.

He seems agitated...! Why?

He seems…agitated! Why?

"Settle down, Dougy! We'll be finished pretty soon."

“Settle down, Dougy! We’ll be finished pretty soon.”

Oops! I'm losing my photo subject!

Oh! I foget about that dang camera strap! Once I hold it back, Dougy settles down a bit.  Very little!  "Stop moving your head, Douglas!"

“Stop moving your head, Douglas!”

"That's right! Hold that cheesy pose a second longer...! Good kitty!"

“That’s right! Hold that cheesy pose a second longer…! Good kitty!”

Yep, that's Dougy in the yellow oval in the door way.  He's had enough for one day!

  1. Love that sweet face with the eyes closed in the second photo, and look at those beautiful bright eyes.
    That is one handsome adorable fella.
    Have a good week end that has once again come sneaking up on us.

    • He hates the flash (reasonably enough), and I try to avoid it where natural light or ambient light allows. Unfortunately, because he is a dark kitty, if his body fills too much of the screen, it triggers the flash even when the flash isn’t needed otherwise. I try to shoot away from the kitties, then Photoshop (crop, color adjustment to deal with orangey incandescent light cast) what I get. Sometimes it works out fine.

    • I’m amazed when that happens, actually! Dougy generally ducks out of the way when he sees the camera or turns his head away to avoid the flash he expects. If I use my webcam or luck out and have adequate ambient light to shoot without flash, that generally works best for both kitties.

    • Andy and Dougy are pretty quiet kitties. Andy meows very softly and Dougy meows only when he wants something…NOW! They both purr very softly, too. I didn’t realize, for example, Dougy purred when I pet him from top to bottom when he hops on my bed in the morning till I happened to lean close to him to give him a head bump. Andy is the same way. I also know he is happy when he nibbles on my hand. LOL!
