I don't think I have photos of my tongue anywhere - that must be remedied!

AUGH I hate giving pills to cats, it makes me feel so bad. It must be so horrific for them. :(

This is such an awesome photo, I feel like it really conveys that feeling. lmao. You have awesome teeth, too! :highfive:

LOL yup! in the moment i saw this photo i remembered when i give pills to my cats!!
lol nice work!! :clap:

Advice: lol if u are having problems doing it (since every time is more difficult) you can get a bag and put him/her inside, just leaving outside the head and closing the bag so he/she doesnt hurt u with the nails and stays still.. .. hitler's vet told me to do that.. u need one of those gym bags of something like that :P
I tend to sit on the floor and put my legs above all his body so he cannot move.. but u can get hurt :P

That's a really smart idea, with the bag. In times of desperation, I did wrap the cats in a towel and sit on them while I gave them their pills. They didn't seem too impressed but it made the process much easier!

The shadows look great. This is so creepy.

It makes me feel so guilty! I remember having to give my cat ear drops when she was a kitten and it broke my heart. At least with humans you can explain to them that it's for their own good and will make them feel better, but animals just know that they're in pain and are unhappy.

Oh yes, kitty ear drops are the worst to do. My cat had a ton of ear problems as a kitten.

Ace picture. Great cropping zone, and good positioning of the fingers.

Thank you :hug: I've been obsessing a little over square crops lately. I don't know why either. Does everyone do that sometimes, obsess over different shapes or dimensions?

zeldaconnetion Featured By Owner May 24, 2009  Student Writer
Oh more than likely.
I tend to favor a wide-sided crop over a box crop. But it all really depends, you want a good cropping to highlight the features of the photo while at the same time removing distractions.

this just reminded me of how much i hate taking pills...it's so horrific to have to remind yourself everyday, more so to give them to a pet. we used to wrap my dog's pills in peanut butter. but she was so smart that she'd eat AROUND the pill and look us like "LOL U SO STUPID" when she finished.

I started hiding the cats' pills in chicken and it seemed to work. Or at least if they spat the pills out they did it in a suitably concealed manner.

Aww, I know. I felt so bad for them. At least with humans we understand why we're taking the pills and we know it's for our own good.

there's something pornographic about this.. not so much in a sexual way, but it feels raw. it gives you goose bumps. and the focus is perfect..!

This is a perfect representation of the genre because my very first reaction was 'ewww...ick !" Yes...you can apparently never quite grow up. ;) Your inner child will come out & have her say ! :giggle: And been there done that. I listen to people tell tales of wrapping pills in cheese or whatever for their dogs, I just pry open my dog's mouth and shove them down their throat. aren't pets fun ? Or I used to, when my other dog was alive anyway.

Anyhow.... cool shot.... very inspiring ! :icongiggplz:
