There are some people out there that seem to always take good pictures, and then there are the rest of us. As I’ve shown with my driver’s license photo, I’m definitely in the later category. I’m discovering that cats can also fall into one of those two categories.
Lemon, being supermodel thin, and having nailed cute at an early age, can look adorable no matter what. The other day I came home and notice she’d obviously gotten into something she shouldn’t have because she had dirt all over one side of her face.
It only seemed to make her cuter!
Carmen, on the other hand, has perfected grumpy. It’s a shame that she’s not as photogenic as Grumpy Cat, because she has the demeanor down. Okay, much of the grumpiness is probably Lemon related – that interloper in her world.
I got a great action shot of Carmen a few months ago, getting fur onto a blanket that had to be laundered because she’d puked on it, WHILE IT WAS ON THE BED – one of the ultimate party fouls.
She doesn’t look too grumpy in that picture, but she does look at least a little bit tubby. I play with her every day, and Lemon is doing more than her fair share of making sure that Carmen gets off the bed and runs around, but Carmen doesn’t seem to be losing any weight.
There is hope, though, at least on the photographic front. I discovered that the Facebook/dating site selfie trick works on cats as well: Take the picture from above.
Look at her kitten-ish figure. That’s the girl I remember. See, doesn’t it look like the one where she really was so thin after I brought her home from the pound?
Isn’t it amazing what the right angle can do? Of course if she ever went missing I wouldn’t use that picture on the posters because she doesn’t really look like that!
Did anyone else know that the overhead angle trick worked on pets? or Who else has a pet that has mastered cute?
