I can't deny it, I am a crazy cat lady. My cats usually stay inside, but sometimes I will let one of them out to play in the yard under strict supervision (we live on a fairly busy street). This photo was taken last weekend while we were enjoying the unseasonably warm temperatures.
I was so happy to get a shot of Tater Tot with him actually holding still and looking at the camera. Much like photographing children, it is difficult to achieve a shot that is composed, in focus and with a reasonable expression when a cat is your subject.
For example, most of my other shots looked like this:
Every time I would get in front of him when he was sitting down, he would come over to me. Of course if I had wanted him to come over he would have been sitting still as a statue. At least he had a good time in the beautiful weather. Snow will be here again soon.
