Camera Critters

Camera Critters is another fun meme hosted by Misty Dawn. You can find other critter photos by clicking on the icon above. Thank you Misty.

This is Isabella. She is my nephew and niece's cat. I took these photos when I last saw her. She was gracious enough to put up with this human following her around to take photos of her.

Pussy cat, pussy cat
Where have you been?
I've been to London
To look at the Queen
Pussy cat, pussy cat
What did you there?
I frightened a little Mouse
Under her chair.

Cat Owner's Prayer
Because I'm only human,
It's sometimes hard to be
The wise, all-knowing creature
That my cat expects of me.
And so I pray for special help
To somehow understand
The subtle implications
Of each proud meowed command.
Oh, let me not forget that chairs
Were put on earth to shred;
And what I like to call a lap
Is actually a bed.
I know it's really lots to ask
But please, oh please, take pity;
And though I'm only human,
Make me worthy of my kitty!

Cats Sleep Anywhere
Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair.
Top of piano, window-ledge, in the middle, on the edge.
Open draw, empty shoe, anybody's lap will do.
Fitted in a cardboard box, in the cupboard with your frocks.
Anywhere! They don't care! Cats sleep anywhere.
Eleanor Farjeon (1881 - 1965)

My goodness, this is an elegant cat. Hoooowever, the picture of it stretching out his claws on the table sent a shiver down my spine. The photos are gorgeous, Denise.

Fantastic photos of a gorgeous feline. I loved the YouTube video too and I'm looking forward to passing it along to friends and family.
I've got something for you at my blog too.

Great pics! I especially like the last one. It sort of looks like she's in a clam. :)

Yes cats sleep any where. Once we saw one of our cats sleeping in a brown paper bag, which was lying on the kitchen table. This cat is a sweetie!
