Christmas, Cats and Cameras...

Well the new camera has been used so much today I think I have repetitive strain injury in my finger.  I'm still not sure what I'm doing with it most of the time but am having fun trying.  The cats had four little Christmas stockings with goodies in including catnip amoebas (they were meant to be catnip fish but as I made them they looked a bit  further back on the evolutionary scale than that).  I did try and get some shots of the cats with the stockings but the light was dreadful so very few were in focus.  Things were slightly more successful when I opened the little parcel my friend Sandra had sent them.  Inside were three bright mice that Pepper immediately attacked.  Anyway, here are the pics.  Hope everyone is having a lovely Christmas Day.

'Christmas - we haz it...'

Mrs Pod...

Pepper not doing anything bad at all for a change...

...and here.  Although she was seen hitting Mrs P on the head at one point.

The three bright mice...

...one of which is about to fall victim to the curse of the claw.

Pepper kills the orange mouse...

Your cats are so gorgeous and you photograph them so beautifully! A new camera, eh? Lovely!

I've now got a set of close-up lenses, so I'm hoping to take some nice kit-pix a la Barbara! (Though I don't expect they'll be nearly as good as yours!)

Ooh great news Penny, can't wait to see them! You just need cunning, guile, nerves of steel, and a handful of cat treats to take close-ups of cats :O)))

Oh, they are just lovely, all of them. And I love what you've done to the evolutionary scale. Scientists will be scratching their heads.
