Where's the cat?!
I was at my parents' place in Brazil and one night we were all looking for our 13 year-old cat called Tjutjut. We looked around and we couldn't find her. After some time my mom finally found Tjutjut and there she was: in a small vase! :lol: It's such a tiny vase that we still don't understand why she found it 'comfortable'.
She always finds this kind of weird places to sleep. 8)

But tell me the truth, isn't she sweet?! :wink:

Very cute!
I used to have a cat and it would snuggle up in the tiniest of places :D

A nest is a nest is a nest :)...

Perhap an instinct for cats...

Find a small place (easier to defend and easier to "heat")?

She looks tiny for a 13 year old. Cute pictures. :) My cat (no longer with us) used to love shoe boxes.

Hi guys,
thanks for the comments!
Josh, she isn't tiny, the vase is! :P

And yes,digicamfan, I think you are right, it must be a cat's instinct.

Too bad I'm not in Brazil anymore. I'm no longer able to take pics of her. :(
I miss my pets. I had 2 cats when I was living there at my parents in Brazil. Now I have no pet to play with.

This is the other one:

That is a great pic!

That is certainly something my cat would do. Lately her place of choice is in the top of a hamper. Ignoring the fact that she's 17 years old and the hamper is upstairs! Her doctor has been amazed that she's still alive twice now. She isn't exactly a healthy cat.

I wonder if its something to do with age? Most younger cats I've spent time with are too busy climbing places they shouldn't to find interesting places to sleep (and instead just take over your favorite chair!)

Wonderful cat shots.
You did wel on the white cat, the highlights are easily blown on white cats, a little EV compensation will resque you.

By the way I got another photo of the white cat.
I printed it and somehow it turned ou t a lot better in the paper than on my screen. But still, I was amazed by the final results of this shot. I can still see a lot of details of his face eventhough my cam is not that 100%.
Any comments?

I think you metered it very well. That highlight is only slightly blown. That is hard to do with such a white (and cute!) subject.

I like this one too!

I must get a photo from my friend's cat. He's of the size of a dog and has long completely black hair. Not to mention huge eyes and long tail. I was really amazed by this animal when I first saw it.

Although they aren't black, the only cat I know that size is the Chausie. They are a hybrid of domestic cats and the wild jungle cat of Asia. Do a google images search on "Chausie" to get an idea of thier size. For example:

Part of me thinks it would be really neat to have a cat this large... and then sanity returns and I sit down with Gracy (our long hair) and I relax, thinking of all the things she isn't knocking over.

One of our cats has a habit of hiding in strange places. One time she managed to squeeze herself into a gap of about five inches, between the top of a pile of books and the shelf above it. It took us hours to find her, as the space didn't look anywhere near big for her to fit in, even when you can see her in it!
