Some pictures

Just a few photos from the past few weeks. Since there aren't that many decent pictures of Squeek anywhere else, in general (because it's difficult to take decent pics of a dark cat without glare), I think there are more of her in this batch than any of the other cats, and I don't have any new shots of Max that are really worth posting here. I'm sure that will change, once the weather improves for good and we're outside more.

On edit -- scanned some analog camera pics, so there's one of Max in there. Sorry in advance for the quality of the scans -- scanner glass is probably dirty, since I don't use it very often (it's a snack table, for the most part), now that I have a digital that will do photos sufficient to post on line at lower than 300 dpi resolution.

Anyway, on with the show.

Here are a couple of shots from the Nikon, of the cats looking out at the snow a month or so ago:



I love to take pictures of them around the blinds -- they always look better than pictures taken anywhere else in the house, a combination of the contrast of the blinds with the shape of cats and better light, I guess.


This image, and the next ones too, are great examples of how I described Squeek at the end of the last entry -- shirty. She's not that bad, actually, she just gets pissy after the first time the flash goes off in her eyes. Only problem is, she won't sit still long enough to let me get the Nikon SLR set up to take low-light pics of her in the house, and besides that, those always come out kind of yellow. Not that flash pictures of her are all that much of an improvement ...



See? Shirty as it gets.


Shot of Gord on the top of the tower. Most of the time, Tink's up there, but Gord's up there the rest of the time, pretty much.


And Her Royal Highness taking her turn.


Interestingly enough, Gord goes through these phases where he acquiesces to the hierarchy in the household and plays subordinate to Tink. Not sure what it was about, this time -- there hasn't been anything really unusual going on around the house, so he's not feeling insecure. Whatever it is, it's pretty funny for us, especially as big a bully as Gord can be.


Gives you an idea how much Tink thinks of Gord -- she didn't move her tail for at least half an hour. Gord knew it was there, but I guess he decided it wasn't worth it to get her to move it.


Ah, but once in a while they have their moments, too.


The only recent digital shot of Doodle that's worth putting on here.


Here's another one of Doodle, this time an analog shot taken at another time -- you'd think she never moved from that spot, but actually she's the busiest cat in show business. Not sure how it happened.

Finally, the last two shots of Squeek -- she was in the kitchen, the light wasn't bad, and I had the camera. Gord, of course, is lurking in the background in the second picture -- if we're anywhere near the kitchen, he labors under the delusion that food just might possibly happen and, as always, he would have some of that:



Here's one of Max from the roll on the Nikon:


The answer is, "yes, he does that a lot."
