We've all had problems with the pets learning our ways and things, and developing counter-measures for each one. Take for example the habit of grabbing up a camera and shoving it in their faces when they do something we consider cute or cuddly. When this happens those eyes go shut, or the head turns away, or we get that 'south end of the north bound mule' pose. That kind of habit.
Our thanks go out to Kelly Colleen who sent Buddy Bear some wonderful pictures of her floofball, Charlie for the posting here. I think they give us a perfect example of the old "close your eyes guys, the dummy has that blinky thing pointed at us again."
Now this shot would have been the perfect
cover picture for 'PlayCat Magazine'
had Charlie not rejected the notion of 'flash in the eyes.'
Even when involved in a happy time chore
like rolling and lolligaging in the mind bending Cat Nip,
they have the unnerving habit of closing their eyes.
Thinking back I kinda remembered a few of my own floofballs pictures that would have been centerfolds, or at least covers that were ruined by the flash dodging heavy eyelids Here's one ......
Miki is good at dodging his duty of posing
for the flashy thing.
Sometimes I wonder if it is not
just a spiteful gesture to pay us back
for taking their favorite chair to watch
Enough. I hear my clowder of walking flashsuppressors milling about inside the pantry , opening doors, searching for their favorite soft dinners. I'm wanted again.
Warms my heart I tell ya.
I feel loved.
