Post 743: sleepy boy…

The boys have favorite places to sleep. Dougy prefers a carrier next to the recliner. It has a towel in it and it is secure and cozy. Andy prefers the washing machine lid or inside the dryer, if I leave the door open.

Of course, a black cat in a white interior makes for a photographic nightmare, but I got something in the camera for you, and that was it!


Here is an older photo of Andy in the dryer that is much clearer.

  1. Everyone should have a cat or two just to show us WE are. George is currently making the rounds of the windows all around the house. He will spend a few days there and then move on to the next. One window has a broken blind and won’t go up and he never stops pestering me to open it.

    • Just “followed” you — you are an inspiring photographer! Glad you commented because I now know about you. Anyway, I’m looking forward to your guy. Kitty? Dog? Never mind! From what I saw in your blog, it will be great!

        • You have a great eye, from what I wsaw, and I’d think it would get you more business if more people viewed it. There are people on WordPress who can help you increase your viewership for business, though I don’t have any names. I just know I’ve seen their blogs at some time in the past. Anyway, good luck! Your portraits are uniquely yours, I think. None of that “just posed” stuff. You seem to have a talent for pulling out your subjects’ personalities, noi easy job!

          • Thanks!
            I really needed that. Self-affirmation isn’t easy to achieve but for you to say that means you actually grasped that.

            Please let me know if you every do come across their page. I need a spike in gigs. I want to reach out and get the customers that miss my blog.


          • Just looking through some of your recent posts – the NJ family shoot is tremendous! – it is self-evident to me you are really good at what you do. I see photos like that. It’s sort of formal yet very personal (the boys wrestling each other on one side in that last photo). I have no doubt that family will love those memories for a life time!

  2. They’re such sweethearts!

    I bought many a bale of hay to fling around my garden, but I had to leave the last few for my cat, she decided that was her place to sleep.

    • LOL! Reminds me of the late great Woody, one of my neighbor’s cats. He was a large tabby, a really personable cat that loved to spend his days in our backyard “bird watching” from the patio and just hanging. Like all cats, whatever I was doing, he had to be there to check it out. He made putting a netting over a fruit tree a challenge because he kept attacking some dried leaves caught in it from the previous year! I finally got it over the tree, but it took half an hour instead of a few minutes. Then, when I raked the autumn leaves, he perched on top of the pile, refusing to move when I started to fill trash bags with the leaves until he was on a column of leaves, the last place on the yard where there were any. I eventually had to just move him because he refused to give up his perch!He was a great cat, and I know that that exposure to a really sweet kitty predisposed me to getting my own cats years later. In fact, the late Louie the ginger cat was a ginger version of the grey Woody.
