Post 1163: > sniff! sniff! <

The kitty brothers often sniff each other. This time it’s in a nice way. LOL! I didn’t realize cats did “that” – butt sniff… – until I had two of them, but they also sniff each other when the opportunity arises.

“That you, brother?” Dougy seems to say while sniffing Andy below.

“Who’d you expect, you goofy cat?!” says Andy, incredulous that Dougy had to ask. 

[After showing you a messy photo taken at the same time in yesterday’s post, I found this extra photo that required a lot less manipulation and showed some kitty interaction. The boys often sniff each other, for whatever reason. What I like about this photo is you can see that smoke Persian aspect in their fur a bit more than usual. It is less evident until their hair grows out a bit, but never shows a lot since I get them trimmed every two months.]

Post 1162: a look behind the scenes…

Thanks to Photoshoppery, I manage to get mostly presentable photos of life with the kitty brothers out to you. I decided today I’d show you how much effort it takes to take a typical photo of the boys from “as is” to kind of presentable. It is a horror story!


Whew! what a mess! Why didn’t I vacuum first? Or put the over-turned wastepaper basket back up? (Dang cats! There isn’t anything of interest in there!) Should I try for one or two kitties in the photo?

Hmm. That cleaned up pretty well, but the background clutter will take some skill I don’t have….

Maybe I can crop it to hell and back and get something…

Oh well. Cropping helped, but  I think that photo is a bit too much to make into a presentable posting photo. I’ll try later for something in a better, cleaner, less cat-ravaged spot!
