And now, the outtakes from an attempt to get a head shot of Meow Meow. The portrait was meant to go with her foster profile in our sidebar, but as you can see, she had other plans.
Leslie: "Oops, you blinked. Let's try that again."
Meow Meow: "See my ear floofs?"
L: "Yes, but I need your whole face --"
M: "Says you."
M: "Ope, missed me!"
M: "Missed me again! Whee, this is a fun game! Oh no --"
L: "Well, geez, Meow Meow, you could at least smile for me ..."
I shot most of the above sequence blind, holding the camera in my lap. Getting my face behind the camera so close to the ground only served as an invitation for Meow Meow to wander out of frame -- to tap my face with her paw, which she tried to do repeatedly. "Give me some love!" she seemed to say.
I think that was supposed to be my line.
