I intended to take the photos of the card for today's post yesterday. However, I got all tied up with other stuff, and all of a sudden, my light was gone.

Today dawned beautiful and sunny. I proceeded to set up my photo taking spot, excited about the possibility of dramatic lighting.

Change of plans:

Fred discovered the sunny window, and immediately let me know what was more important -- taking stupid card photos or a cat enjoying the sun.

Well, I guess he told me.

If cats could talk, I know he would be telling me . . . well, just look at his face. 
You know what he's trying to say to me. 
It's not nice.

Can't you just leave me alone?


I am just ignoring you.

And, yes, I can see that you are still there.

I'm giving you the evil eye.

Maybe if I just ignore her, she'll go away.

 .. . and. leave. me. in. peace.

Ah. I just love this solitude.

WHAT!?? You are still there?!?

The evil eye is saying GO AWAY!

WAIT! WHAT??! Is that an obscene gesture??

I think he feels this is getting real old real fast.

Waiting . . . 

As long as she is keeping me awake, I might as well spiff myself up a bit.

The Sphinx

I think he's losing patience with me. And I think I am losing this battle.

I thought maybe if I moved the card into the picture, he would get the message. 


Fred just does not care.

I give up. You win, Fred.

This is the card that was supposed to be the subject of today's blog post. 
Stay tuned. I promise it will show up on Wednesday.

  7. Such a beautiful cat Fred is! Our cat, Rory, disappeared on Easter and despite many people looking for him, we have never found him:(. We have since taken in a rescue cat who was injured named Buddy (by the little girl who had been feeding him). Cats are the best.
