Here is my cat. This was the first shot I took after buying my new digital camera several weeks ago. He was so curious, that I figured I may as well shoo him off by taking his picture. It didn't work.

Here is another one of him usinga Nikon Coolpix 990. Yes, his curiosity lends itself to trying to get into my photo gear every chance he gets. Likewise, he likes to have lots of attention, and seems to ham it up for the camera most of the time.....

Chako, I really like the second picture. In that picture your cat has a very endearing pose. But, in the first picture it looks like your cat has just come back from undergoing some sort of surgery by the looks of that white area on the side of his/her head - what happened there?

That is completely normal. He has very light hairsthat shows a sheen patch from his ears to his eyes. When you look at him straight on, you only see the black, but at a certain angle, you get this sort of display.

I read in a cat encyclopedia, that some breeds exhibit this trait as a means to scare off larger predators in the wild, as they resemble eyes. Not sure to believe that or not..but when he moves his face from side to side, he shows a silver patch that can be startling to see.

So nothing to worry about, its just how he looks.

This is what I normally see when he wants to get into anything...including my camera gear unfortunately.
