Puffy in winter mode

by Heike January. 08, 2019 1340 views

Some of you know Puffy already from here, he is the neighbours cat. He is a free spirit and goes whereever he wants. In summer he enjoyed being outside the whole night, his passion is hunting mice and in balmy nights of the past summer, he invited me several times to a 'delicious' late-night-dinner, consisting of (mostly still alive) mice - and always in my livingroom...with the result, that I too have refined my techniques in hunting mice...Now during wintertime, he checks every evening whether I'm at home and when I let him in, he makes himself comfortable on my lap and falls into sleep - and I'm sure, he is dreaming of our romantic summer-night-dinners... 😸

I really like this set of photos. I wish I had an animal myself so I could photoshoot whenever I want. So far I try to phototgraph my son but quiet often I need to bribe him.

Thanks Ewa, glad you like the pics. It is very comfortable to have a 'neighbor cat' - I don't need an own animal, because Puffy is in the opinion my home is his home...smile And be sure, you also have to bribe the animal ...

His eyes say : Cuddle me, cuddle me ! smile I sat on the couch beneath him and tried to focus him, while he craweled nearer and nearer, a second later and he would have been too near to get a sharp photo.
Thank you Olga!

Looks like my cat
I always tell him that he's a good cat-When he's sleeping!
I take a lot of cat pictures too, they are such interesting creatures, thanks for sharing your lovely set!

What a lovely creature he is! Sleeping so peacefully in the neighbor! Considering the nature of cats it looks quite odd to me. Anyhow I have to admit that he is born to be a model, seeing all the pose he has taken before the camera. Amazing shots are made from the cooperation between the photographer and the model. smile

Never a problem.....Heiki. I totally understand! I get way behind many times, especially since I have been traveling so much this last year......I'm sure we all have many other things tugging at our coat sleeves for attention, most all of the time.......

Beautiful photos, Heike. You've really captured the daytime essence of this cat - a sleepy head and very co-operative subject of which to take pictures. I'm not a cat lover but your pictures are really endearing. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Greg. Puffy is a very easy photo-model. He does not care very much about the camera unlike other cats in the neighbourhood. You can't imagine, how many blurred cat photos I made in the last years. Sometimes you see only a part of their tail, because the are running away or you see their blurred nose, because the run into the lens. smile

So sweet! Cats have the most blissful expressions when they sleep, and these capture them purrrfectly! smiley cat

Thank you Bethany. It's so funny to watch them shortly before they fall into sleep. The eyes become smaler and smaler and boooooom they are asleep. Never saw a creature falling into sleep that quickly. smile

A Kitten

by Eleanor Farjeon

He's nothing much but fur

And two round eyes of blue,

He has a giant purr

And a midget mew.

He darts and pats the air,

He starts and cocks his ear,

When there is nothing there

For him to see and hear.

He runs around in rings,

But why we cannot tell;

With sideways leaps he springs

At things invisible -

Then half-way through a leap

His startled eyeballs close,

And he drops off to sleep With one paw on his nose.

Thanks Pete. He seems to love the camera - for a while.... smile

Puffy scheint genau zu wissen, wo die besten Fotos von ihm gemacht werden. Außerdem scheint der "free spirit" in direktem Zusammenhang mit Ruhe, Frieden und Gemütlichkeit zu stehen.

Danke Sigrid. Ruhe und Frieden nur, wenn er das bekommt was er will. smileEr hat so ein mega niedliches Gesicht, aber ist manchmal total unberechenbar. Mittlerweile sehe ich oft schon an seinem Blick, wann seine Stimmung - warum auch immer - gerade von schmusig in kämpferisch kippt. Dann heisst es, Hände in Sicherheit bringen.

Thank you Russell. He does always what he wants, and if a human don't act like he expects, it gets painful for the human. smile
