W/NW Cats

Cats are admittedly overphotographed, but what can I say, I like ours. Let's see your cats or any feline images. Anything goes, Egyptian statues etc. Here are two to start.

Cats will IMO never be overphotographed. Since the cat domesticated man, man adored her by works of art.

Ok guys...you're making me miss my Opus. He died 2 years ago and I have no RF shots of him. He was 20 years old and therefore my oldest, most reliable friend.

Cats aren't over-photographed, nor is anything else. It is a matter of what you do with the subject matter in front of you. I love cats and will keep photographing them and exhibiting my photos of them. They sell fairly well, so they can't be that bad.

Here's a stray cat that someone dumped near my place, looks to
be maybe a year old tom. Of course I started feeding it and now it's part of my household:



#2 isn't in good focus, but this little cat is very active!

Bill, He's pretty. My grandpa used to have a gray cat that looked like that.

This is my cat, Simba. He isn't a bundle of energy. His day for the last 14 yrs has consisted of sleeping, eating, bitching, eating more, sleeping, bitching, and more eating. He got up to 22lb, but is a little lighter now due to health problems as he's gotten old. He's also gotten more greedy, and meanspirited as he's aged. He stayed with my parents when I moved to Santa Fe because I didn't know where I'd be living when I moved out there, and once there I didn't have a way to transport him as he hates car rides. While I was gone, my parents got a dog. A great pyrenees dog! He was unrelentingly mean to that HUGE dog, and would attack her and steal her food! He even stole food that he normally wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole, like dog food and beef (he hates beef and refused to ever eat it until the dog came along). The dog is scared of him. He knows it, and it makes him happy.

Simba's aunt, Molly is my grandpa's cat. Molly is 17 yrs old and was born at grandpa's house. She is the most evil cat I have ever known. She is known to have killed two rattlesnakes during her life, and has killed more then 6000 small animals. She tore up a pit bull once (Pit Bull is an american dog breed that is bred for dog-fighting....known for extreme agressiveness). When grandpa got a big white German Shepherd mix, Molly took a sh-t in grandpa's bed because she was pissed off about the dog. Then she began terrorizing the dog. Grandpa kept it in a big cage at night for the first couple weeks he had it, and one night Molly jumped on top of the cage, reached in through the bars, and clawed the dog's face up!

Cats are natural con artists!

They con us humans into taking care of them, feeding them, keeping them safe and warm, giving them oodles of attention, loving them like family, giving them medical care, wow, they really have us, don't they?

Here's my cat in the garage, holding down my vehicle. Shot with Canon F-1 (old) with 55mm f/1.2 FD lens. Tmax 400, I think. The scan has some dust specks, but the lens is fairly sharp, with nice bokeh. The cat is top predator of our garage and back yard.

He/she is pretty. I like striped cats, they look wild and predatory. The mittens add a hint of domestication! LOL Of course, my cat (the fat orange one shown earlier) has stripes and he is too lazy to kill anything!

Mine does all that, plus bitching incessantly about the food bowl's emptiness.

You certainly have a large cat! The long hair may add to the illusion a little, but you can tell he's big.
