Oh no the human's got his camera out....

Bugger off, I'm asleep

That bloody flash. I'll kill him

Do that again and I'll do to you what you did to me as a kitten

This week's entry for the Friday Ark and Carnival of the Cats.

Cats do spend 3/4 of the day sleeping.

Ture but he was pretty annoyed at me. Bebe saw the camera and ran off!

I do miss Earl the always hungry cat. He is well fed but will knock of squirrels, rats mice, birds after eating all day.

I am on my way to GA for training for six weeks. Then it is off to Kansas City and Houston.

Cats seem to have a genuine contempt for cameras, don't they? Maybe they believe we're out to steal their souls, when we point out lenses at them. Or worse still, out to steal their food.

I've joined this one, too, Shaunie! My first effort is an illustrated tale involving an oversized Leo and a small box.

The beast awakens... he is not pleased... only food can placate him!

I think cats must be able to see the flash through their eyelids, or perhaps they hear the charging of the flash. Either way, Stella's kitties rarely sleep through the camera, no matter how quiet I am in opening it. I know that expression well!

I'm sure you do Beakerkin. They get under your armour. Enjoy your corses.

You are becoming a meme monster Siani! Mimi no the other hand doesn't mind the camera but she is possibly the thickest cat on the planet!

Glad you like it LB!

I'm sure they do see it under their lids Steve. I suppose their eyes are far more sensitive to light than ours so it may be unpleasant for them.

I have excellent high frequency hearing and can hear the whine of the capacitor as it charges for the flash. Cats have a much higher range so they can definitely hear it even before the arc of the xenon flash tube.

They also tend not to close their eyelids all the way when they sleep, so it will definitely be seen.

As big as he is, I'm not sure I would go around annoying Robyn.

True Bryuaqn but fortuantely he is a gentle giant. We would be in real trouble if he had Ted's grumpy demeanour!

Victor Tabbycat said...

Beans is always tryin to get pictors when we's sleepin, an wif the flash it's efun worst. How'd they like it if we flashed pictors of them while they's sleepin, huh?
Place yur next hairball carefully. Revenge is not sweet, it's sticky an wet.
(Mom likes yur pitors. She don't unnerstand)

Victor thanks! I will be very careful of where Robyn places his furball as I don't want to break my neck falling down the stairs!

I can't ever get decent pictures of our dog Reagan, even when he's asleep. He wakes up immediately and lunges for the camera. He's the Sean Penn anti-papparazzi of the canine world.

Robyn is cute......but he's no TED.

LOL Bebe just runs away sadly when teh camera comes out. Reafan is a handsome fellow. I wish you had more photos of him!

I am glad he's not Ted. If he had Ted's grumpy side he could be bloddy dangerous!
