The uncooperative model

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: "Gotcha!"

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.

I don't know... I think you have some great shots of Meow Meow already! Of course it could be that it seems Meow Meow is so beautiful, there is no such thing as a "bad" photo...

I'm so glad you are posting updates on your new permanent resident. I come by almost every day hoping there is a new update on Meow Meow!

ROFL!! It is Meow Meow's job to humble you, and she knows it! ;-)

Hee hee, thanks, Annie -- now Meow Meow's blushing. She is a pretty girl. For marketing purposes, though, having half her face missing in a photo seemed slightly problematic!

We're delighted to have you as a regular reader. We appreciate the encouragement :)

And yes, Lisa, every cat we've fostered has found numerous ways to humble me!
