Since I have invested over $200 in my three cats, I am trying to make friends with them. I don't want to get too chummy, but I would like to be able to pet them if I'm so inclined. Suzie, the most timid of them, is actually the most cooperative of the three. If I sit in the grass and talk to her, she soon snuggles up against my leg and purrs like crazy... as long as I don't make a fast move.
I am discovering that cats are not the easiest creatures to photograph. I took eighteen pictures this evening and ended up with four I am not ashamed to share, and I had to crop those. I don't know where Mama Kitty was during this photoshoot; probably out catching mice or moles, as is her evening custom.
