For the Calendar?
I’m thinking far more about a range of photos. I was working from home this afternoon, knee deep in paper as the sitting room still testifies. For a brief half hour, the sun came out on what has been a spectacularly colourless day.
I dropped my pen, grabbed my camera and headed into the garden. I wanted MasterB to come with me. This is the same cat who woke me up at five trying to dig a hole through my back and wailed piteously when I wouldn’t let him go out. He did get out between seven and eight, and he seems to have decided that is enough frsh air for today. So no photos of him romping in the sunshine, just these:
Anyway, he’s missing his chance, as I am having an early supper before going to the theatre. I guess I am due another night’s interrupted sleep.
What a cutie! And almost a guarantee to an interrupted night of sleep!
I hope Teddy has better manners!
No, he doesn’t have better manners – which is how I can feel your pain! 🙂
The funny thing is, he was as good as gold until after this summer’s stay at the cattery. It makes me believe the cats share stories about their homes and tips on getting the humans to do things for them.
I know just what you mean about cats sharing stories! Ted was an angel until he spent a week with my parents and their two cats – then BOOM. He was naughty on cue, as he deemed it necessary. Meowing incessantly, scurrying about the house all hours of the night and jumping up and down from my bed around 4am. They’re out to get us! 🙂
Intriguing. In the cattery MasterB can’t have observed these behaviours, so why would he suddenly be adopting them unless he had learned in ‘speech’ from other cats?
It’s the speech. Cats are sneaky that way and I do believe they’ve swapped secrets!
Number 2. That’s perfect.
I think you are in the minority there. The top one seems to be winning votes. But looking at them again, I think I agree with you.
I am partial to the top one. He looks like he is contemplating something of great importance. But all are great – he is such a perfect model.
Pat I don’t know if you noticed but I replied to your questions at Isobel’s post “Of Nasty Surprises, Calendars and MasterB”.
Thanks, I just went looking for it and found it.
I wish he had been contempalting getting off the sofa. He is entirely dinner orientated since being on his diet and it isn’t working. I can’t go into the kitchen without him following me these days. He’s gping to be modelling outsize at this rate.
😀 I am trying to loose a few pounds and so I can relate. MasterB and I can be dieting buddies – but I promise not to follow you into the kitchen.
I hope you can help him to be a bit more motivated about it. 🙂
All three pics are adorable…couldn’t really decide …but perhaps the first one as it shows its beautiful dancing eyes
I like the top shot. I love his gingerness.. 🙂 against the blue and I can see his sweet Fuzz Face. Second shot is right up there too. He is irresistible in all of them!
I think the top one is the best.
Sounds like that is the one most people are going for. But is it calendar worthy?
It shows his colour well but there have been some fabulous pictures this year and this may not make the cut 😀
Do you have any particular ones in mind?
Can’t remember specifics apart from the ones at the weekend. Have you not kept a folder for the short list? 😀
Yes, but sometimes I don’t include a picture someone else sees as particularly arresting. It helps to look back at photos some time after I have taken them.
I shall sort out the long list fairly soon.
Master B can do no worn. Wherever he is, he looks gorgeous 🙂
Apologies! No wrong!
I assumed it was one of the kittens doing the typing!
Next time he starts to dig a hole in me, wrestle my arm, or put a firm paw on my throat when I am sleeping, I shall try to remember that. 🙂
So adorable. All of them are delightful. MasterB and Timmy are somehow related. Those are typical Timmy poses – you must have been reading a future post at this end 🙂
Does Timmy nab the entire sofa too?
no, that he does not do. Timmy shares space. and gladly. i suspect that comes from all the time that he was left alone before he moved in. although he does take up as much space as he can and still leave room for a human to sit down as well.
MasterB lived in a busy, over populated student flat before he came to me. Maybe he likes having a bit of extra room.
Isobel they are ALL absolutely adorable……MasterB is truly an ideal photographic subject!
