Never work with children or animals...

Tried to do a quick photo shoot with the cats in the garden yesterday evening.  I had to work fast as there were amazingly large thunder clouds heading our way and the light was fading.  Pepper ruled herself out from the finished pictures by looking as if she were possessed and trying to stand on her head, whilst Mrs Pod kept running towards the camera every time I pointed it at her.  Even Posky, who is usually more alert to striking a pose at the sight of a DSLR camera than Victoria Beckham, was more interested in investigating a compost bag than co-operating.  Charlie was having his own problems - Ben seemed to be creeping up on him with some kind of malevolent intent and it was making him nervous.  Finally, I got these!

'I can't concentrate - there's a rabbit looking at me...'


'He's still there isn't he? What the hell is he doing??!??'


'How about this? Quick, take it then I'm off, I think he's got a knife or something!'


'Am I getting paid for this?  I'll work for tuna...'

Cats are so funny, and so are your captions. Great pictures.

Lovely photos.

You have a cat that poses?? My little Lucy is like Mrs Plod and comes running towards me when I get the camera out. I have to sneak up on her, or use the zoom.

Posky is very photogenic and seems to know it! I have to do to Mrs Pod what you have to do to Lucy to get a shot. Bless 'em!!

I think Ben was just making sure Charlie didn't do anything nefarious to The Buddha! Good thing Pepper had someone to cover for her while she was busy standing on her head (lol!)

I think were Charlie not distracted by malevolent bunnies armed with knives (and his own wicked thoughts of mayhem), he would have been striking the same pose as that cat statue. That would be a great photo!

I love your description of their antics, it's a worthy substitute for any actual photos. I can picture it all in my mind's eye. LOL at the Victoria Beckham reference, and Willow does that whole running toward the camera thing sometimes too!
