Model: Shai

Shai had been sleeping next to me in the most adorable curled up on her back sort of position, looking all fluffy and cute for ages. I actually managed to get the camera out, change lenses, attach the flash cord and flash and sit down on the floor beside where she was lying on the couch before she woke up, and then she was kind enough to let me take this photo before she got bored of me and decamped to the windowsill to enjoy the sun.

Shai doesn't usually 'do' modelling, so I was very pleased that she stayed still enough to let me focus right in on her squiffly lil nose with the 50mm f1.8 lens. The focusing isn't completely apparent in the small view, but can be seen in full view mode.

I don't object in the slighest to a bunch of comments saying 'aww kitty!' or, in emote language, :aww: :kitty: - there's not a huge amount else to say about this photo, and 'aww kitty!' was just about all I was thinking when I took it.

Enjoy!

Adorable ... I certainly don't think of her as a "fluffy monster". :) Cats ... they can adopt the most incredible, charming positions, don't you think? :)

Shai doesn't like to pose so the only time I can get a decent photo of her is when she's sleeping or right after she wakes up.

You're welcome. :hug: I agree totally. You can't do creepy 24/7. O_o or at least I can't cause I would get bored. And A.D.D just asks for "look a kitty" moments.

The next time Shai throws up on the carpet, I'll send her to you. She's pretty but she does have a tendency to barf in really annoying places.

You are the third person, I know, with a cat, that has had the throwing up on the carpet problem. How strange. I have a dog, and he's never thrown up on the carpet or any place else. Veryyyy odddd. *rubs chin thinking*

My cat does it to be contrary. If she doesn't get her own way or someone annoys her, she pukes to prove a point. She also eats far too fast which doesn't help. My best friend is a vet and she checked the cat over and says all is well, some cats just have sensitive stomachs. I think cats are more into psychological warfare with humans than dogs are :)

Cats are terribly photogenic, but too proud to let it be done easily, they are the most fussy of all models.

My cat has eyes like that, sometimes she'll sit there and just stare at you for an hour. o_0 Or jump on my sketch pad, which i s not productive.

And: Awwwww, kitty!

Shai likes to roll around on anything I'm using...she has a weird obsession with my computer. If I set it on the floor, she rubs her face against it and won't leave it alone. I think she's trying to tell me that I should've got the black MacBook instead.

:lmao: and jackie (my cat) loves to attack a moving pencil. I've got that many scratches. And the keyboard, i learned to type with one hand because if she is in my lap and i'm typing with two, she'll walk allover it ending up in:fnsjkfhhgdg.

Also, i have to tell you, today she was wondering around leaning over the kitchen sink and slipped and fell inside, then looked around for a minute or two confused. It was hilarious.
