Snapshot of Black Cat at End of Bed — 23 Comments

  1. What a great photo of Charlie! He doesn’t look as much like Monty there– his Siamese heritage is evident, I think, and Monty definitely does not have any Siamese in him. Too bad Charlie doesn’t enjoy the outside anymore. Monty loves it, mostly because he enjoys tormenting the chipmunk who lives in the wood pile by the back porch. He actually caught it yesterday, but it got away. He lets it go to have the fun of catching it again. I tell him if he doesn’t plan to eat it he shouldn’t torment it.

  2. Charlie looks rather glamorous in this excellent photo of a black cat. He is getting more beautiful as he ages, if that is possible.

  3. He’s beautiful I love Black cats with the 2 we have now that makes 6 over the years! He looks sleepy still had he just woken up and stretched out to look at you? His coat looks very silky πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Leah. His coat is pretty silky. It does vary a bit in the way it feels. Sometimes it feels very silky maybe because of the chicken I am feeding him-I mean a high-quality cooked breast of chicken that is meant to be eaten by people! I also comb him with a very fine comb, a flea comb that is 32 prongs to the inch. I think this stimulates the sebaceous glands in the skin to produce an oil that makes his coat feel very nice and look glossy. I would recommend combing a cat with a flea comb but it has to be done gently if the cat has a double or triple coat. Charlie has a single coat and he is very easy to come. Note: I also feed him cat food (mainly) just in case you imagined me feeding him chicken breast as a staple diet.

    • aww hes geogerous just love a black beauty cat. I might have to scrap book some of those photos some time. just love the look hes giving you. I got this book on kindle how to take better cat pictures its been quite helpful. hes a lovelycat

    • Thanks Nancy. He is a handsome boy. He’s on the bed with me right now as it is approaching 7 AM on Sunday morning while I dictate this. He’s just had his breakfast and gone to the toilet. Complete routine is the name of the game!

  4. Just a quick note to say that at the moment I’m dictating everything using a speech to written word application called Dragon Dictate. It’s good but not perfect and sometimes there are incorrect words that I can’t see when I check them because I am word-blind. I am word-blind because, for many years, I used to speed read. That is why there was a typo at the beginning of this page which is now corrected. Fortunately, the French word for cat is β€œchat”. So it wasn’t that bad πŸ˜‰ Apologies.

  5. Charlie’s eyes look incredible. Focused, intense.
    And, he looks shiny and new.
    I don’t know how anyone couldn’t fall in love with him.

    • Dee, you are too nice. I was working at the time (on the website) and he looks at me like that and I have to stop. Sometimes I say, “stay there” when he wants to come up to me and rest where the computer is. He stops and looks at me. Guess what happens soon after πŸ˜‰ It takes me about 5 mins to give in.

  6. That and the long foreground you chose, the ripples in the sheet. (My laptop’s screen limitations force me to scroll back and forth.) I like this whole composition.

  7. Yes, and that jagged “lightning bolt” light on the blanket is actually accentuated by not just the colors, but by the outlets. If they were not there to temporarily distract the eye, then the jagged patterns of light in behind Charlie would not be quite as noticeable, and enhance Charlie’s eyes and alertness as they do. All in all, this is quite an awesome snapshot of Charlie!

  8. This a wonderful photo of Charlie! You are so good at finding just the right moment in your day to capture that life! lol, this is your life’s calling! πŸ™‚
