quantum_jellyroll: I give up, it's worse than shooting little kids.


According to a popular movie, you just give them less of a lead when aiming.

Awesome kitty you have there! Congrats!

ThePuceGuardian: I'm here, more or less. The news is in, and not promising. The dramavolcano's caldera is rumbling.

For now, here's my Dad's psycho cat:

Saw this earlier while at work...
Best wishes for your Dad. I hope everything turns for the better without too much drama.

Here is the cat in question...

[reneau.smugmug.com image 576x768]

[reneau.smugmug.com image 800x600]

I put the 200mm lens on, and he decided to stay within 8 feet of me, too close to focus.
So I replaced the 200mm with the 27-80mm for closer focus, so he decided to go play in the yard.
I give up, it's worse than shooting little kids.


He is so handsome!

Sorry I haven't been very talkative this weekend - I've been lurking, but I've been here.

Bighairyguy and MizMezcalita - words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss of Leo. He was a gorgeous beastie.

QJ - Oscar is such a handsome fellow. Also sending *skritches* to him.

Sending healing/encouraging/good vibes to TPG, The Ice Queen, TIDTMC, Salem Witch and anyone else who needs/wants them.

valnt9: lilyspad: valnt9: ok, I'm gonna put this out there one more time...

if you remember a farker called TIDTMCats, he really
needs people to help him through a rough period. Just
writing to him will help a lot.

his address is:

A. J. Teel - 048643
Laramie County Det. Fac.
1910 Pioneer Ave
Cheyeene, WY 82001

a post card would make him happy.

Okay...will do. Is that the actual address that should be on the envelope?

that's it.


Cheyenne,right?

Have I told y'all lately that I love you? The world is a mean place with people who can bully, ignore, patronize, and harm others.

Caturday is nothing like that, and the folks here do everything they can to put forward the most positive vibes they can. That makes this place priceless. I know that you all understand how special this board is, but I just wanted to say it and thank you all for creating this little sanctuary every week.

Mr. Witch is a little concerned about being able to take care of Suzy while he is on the mend, so my boss is going to let me take the Dorkopotamus to work with me Thursday and Friday. One of the bookkeepers has a new Boston Terrier puppy that he has been bringing to work.

I will have my camera.

FWIW...
I mentioned earlier, the act of reducing the photos of the feral kitty to meet
Fark size limitations degrades the quality of the photos.

Here is a 5x7 crop of one shot at full print resolution.

Notice the hairs on top of his snout right by his nose are in focus,
His chest, only an inch and a half further back, is already greatly out of focus.
That isn't Photoshop, that's the dynamics of Depth of Field with a "fast" lens.
*That's* the difficulty in trying to photograph an active cat.
(I wouldn't actually "shoot" a cat)

You are getting better results than I am. Granted I am using a cheap broken fugifilm I picked up from a pawn shop, but the cats would do the same no matter what I had.

I spent the morning sweeping up all that fine sand, I really want a robot vacuum to help keep up with the critters. Seems every time they go outside they roll in the sand to see how much they can bring in with their fur. I am about ready to toss down some grass seed and water it.
/but then I would probably have to mow the living room
//all my good ideas end like that

Home from chori at last, both rehearsals went well.  FangQ valnt9 for promised adrs. reckon you had trouble getting it to "take".  Looked at everything since we left for rehs & either pg 20 or 21 was 1st place I saw this (type at ft of 21 now).

She was chained up outside and ignored for 4 years. Adopted her 48 hours ago and she already won't leave my side,
1st reddit then imgur 4 hrs ago by iruninca, who's good person for adopting her.

looks like he'll recover but dog also needs attention; now limps on 3 legs, driving sis bonkers.
