My cat was lying there in a sunbeam, comfy and warm. She isn’t usually around much on weekends. She hides in the girls’ bedroom, right behind the bed. She isn’t accessible there so the kids can’t bother her. They wouldn’t but she’s afraid of them anyway. So, there she was in the sunlight, all 20 pounds of her, and I thought I’d try to get a picture of that beautiful face. As soon as I approached, she went to her food bowl and masked for food. I tried to get a picture while she ate. Her face wasn’t visible though and besides, she moved too much for the camera. When she was done, she made for the door and stopped, back turned. I tried calling her and she turned her head but didn’t come to me. I didn’t dare move. I wanted her back in her sunbeam but I knew she could just as well hide in the girls’ bedroom. So I grabbed the catnip spray and sprayed my foot. Yes, my foot. It was all I had handy. She turned around then but didn’t move. And she loves catnip!
I scooched closer and then she was interested in my foot. And of course, she moved too fast for the camera so I ended up with a bunch of blurry fat cat pics. Apparently, catnip makes her hungry. I got myself in the doorway to block her exit and finally got a good shot. The focus is soft because I had to use a really wide aperture. But doesn’t she have a gorgeous face? Those eyes! I love her eyes.
And then she hid behind our bed instead of going to her sunbeam. Stupid, anxious cat.
