This is a very nice picture of Sara Anderson and her cat Loki. The main reason, for me, why it is interesting is because the cat has a very grumpy, stern face. He has a hard demeanor although I am sure that he is a very lovable Sphynx cat. In contrast, Sara Anderson is a very attractive woman with a soft, gentle face. It’s the juxtaposition of the different appearances which makes it a fine photograph.
However, there are some weaknesses. Firstly, the photograph comes from a website called “Girls And Their Cats“. Personally, I don’t approve of women being described as ‘girls’. It happens a lot. And women use this description. It is not good to describe women as girls in the battle for equality of the sexes. It implies that women are vulnerable, immature creatures needing the protection of men which simply isn’t true. Perhaps women desire this status.
Secondly, I do not think that a ring in the nose of Sara Anderson improves her appearance. Once again this is a personal preference but when I see this sort of facial decoration I think of farmyard livestock and a bull with a ring through his nose. For a bull, the ring makes him easier to manage. I wonder whether there is a Freudian connection?
Lastly, if you look carefully at Sara’s left eye, there is a little bit of a deposit in the corner of the eye which was probably left after a night’s sleep. This should been picked up by the photographer and removed or spotted out using photo editing software.
Grumpy Sphynx cats?
Why is it that some Sphynx cats have such stern expressions? Does it mean that they are genuinely fed up and upset with everything that goes on around them? Or is this a case of cat selective breeding resulting in an anatomy which gives us this strange appearance? It’s meant to be attractive. I see the opposite, in the same way that I see rings through human noses as unattractive too.
P.S. I don’t know what Sara Anderson is well-known for. Perhaps she is not well-known. Google does not find her.
