Calculating Cat

Nothing like having a geek kitty with his wireless router and calculator.

Soccer, the Apple of My Eye

Why is it that cats will crawl into anything that you put down, even for just a minute? I guess it is just the cozy feeling that it gives them. Soccer will crawl into any box there is. It dosen't matter whether big or little, if he can fit you can bet he will be there.

Black Cat Pocketbook

A new pocketbook and it has kitties on it too. What more could you ask for?

Lilly Up Close and Personal

Ever since Little Missy moved in, Lilly keeps an open eye for a chance to harass the new kitty in the house. These two think it is great fun to hiss at and chase each other. I don't know if they will ever be friends. I just hope that they will at least tolerate each other.

New Cat in the House

Due to a recent move, Little Missy needed a new place to live and has moved in full time with her cousins Soccer and Lilly. She has adapted very well to the humans in the house, but getting along with her cat cousins is taking more effort. Soccer and Missy seem to be coming to an agreement to ignore each other, but there is still a lot hissing and fighting between Lilly and Missy.. Oh, well. Maybe there will be peace in the house one day.

In Memory of Casey

Today we lost a wonderful loving cat and a true friend of the last 16 years. Casey first came to live with us after being adopted from the SPCA. He and Danny, were adopted on the same day. When we brought them home, you could hold one in each hand. They were so tiny. We lost Danny a few years ago and then Max and Hershey came to live with us. Casey was the most loving cat and friend right up to the end. With all his medical problems, he just finally gave out. He will really be missed.

Contest Girl

Tonight, the photography club had a challenge to pick a room and take 10 different pictures. Miss Lilly was kind enough to pose for the first picture, since she was already in the den where I was going to take the pictures.

Soccer keeping the bed bugs away

If you lay down, Soccer thinks it is his duty to come and protect you while you sleep. Of course it may just be that he likes to snuggle. At any rate, you always have a friend at nap time.

Best of Friends

Piper and her bear are best of friends. She loves to curl up with the bear for a nice snooze.

Hershey quietly watching Max go wild

While Max is going wild chasing the ball and running from the camera, Hershey just sits around quietly watching the action. Every now and then if the ball comes close, she will grab it just to make Max mad. Most of the time she thinks Max waste way too much energy.

Happy Max

I spent some time in the back yard with Max and Hershey today. I took a bunch of pictures trying to get something in focus of Max. While we were play fetch, and he was getting pretty tired, I was able to get this shot. Normally he is running around the yard at full speed if I even point the camera at him.

Think Spring

Little Missy says "Think Spring". She likes the flowers, and would like you to have a free flower. To get your own flower, click on the "Think Spring" flower in the sidebar to get a flower from the "Points of Light" website.

Max and Hershey lounging in the back yard

Almost as hard as taking a picture of a black cat is trying to take a picture of a hyper black dog. Actually it may be even harder, at least the cat will stay still. Hershey will usually sit quietly by and pose for a picture, but not Max. As soon as he sees the camera, he starts going a mile a minute around the back yard. He will rarely come to rest, and usually not very close by. The only way I was able to get this was to break out the long lens and wait for him to get tired.

Piper on her scratching post tree

Cousin Piper loves to lay around on her new Tree Scratching Post that she got for Christmas. Man, black cats are really hard to get a good exposure when trying to take their picture.

Soccer poses for Flash Test

Soccer was also willing to help me test my new "better flash card" that I made for the flash. It worked well to not create harsh shadows.
Since so many people have been coming by looking for ways to photograph the game of Soccer, especially how to pose soccer players, I have now included some links to photography sites that have pictures of the game and some helpful hints. See the new links on the sidebar to soccer sites.


Lilly offered to pose, so that I could test out a "better bounce card" for my flash. The new card gives some nice even lighting.

Casey in the Kitchen

Casey will soon be 16 years old. Even though he eats all the time, he only weighs a little less than 6 pounds. He has a tyroid problem that keeps him so thin, but as old as he is and as poor of heath that he is in, he is about the most loving cat you can imagine.

Jigsaw Puzzle

Trying to put together a collage of Mr. Big Boy and Little Missy in order to have a jigsaw puzzle made for my mother-in-law. The cats are not the best of friends, so you don't see them together very often for a kodak moment.

Lilly and the Sun Lamp

Nothing like a good book and a sun lamp for a relaxing evening!
