Cats on Tuesday - More on the photo comp...

Well after Pepper and Posky stole the limelight last week with their winning photos, I had to post some pics of the two who didn't win.

Exhausted with the amount of work that they'd put into their
competition photos to no avail, Mrs P and Charlie
decided they didn't care anyway and went to sleep...

Mrs Pod - black and white version
It didn't win any prizes but I love this photo 
(I entered the colour version
but I prefer the b&w).

Charlie
Here's the boy himself...


And talking of the photo competition, can I give a quick mention to Emma-Louise at The KittyCat Boutique as she's sending Pepper a blue snowflake collar and tag, plus a Treehugger catnip toy as part of her prize.  They have some lovely collars and accessories for pooches as well as cats.  Go check them out!

Oh yes, prizes... well here's Pepper trying to break into
the box of goodies that came for her and Posky...

... and here she is trying to look innocent of any wrongdoing.
(These photos are very dark and grainy as they were taken in dim light at night,
I just had to grab my camera and snap away 
when I saw the little minx up to no good!).

Pepper enjoys one of her prizes...
A treat in the paw is worth two in the tub...
(or something like that)

And what about Posky?
Well he was pretty laid-back about the whole thing.
Here he ponders his rosettes...

...But on the whole he decided he prefers the new pink bed,
(partly bought with the voucher prize).
And yes that's Mrs P asleep on the cushion that
is meant to be IN the bed.

Those are wonderful cat close-up photos!!!

Love the paw fishing cat ! They do everything for those treats. We have the whiskas treats too in Germany and our cats love it!

Love the last photo. Great solution to share a bed!!!

Your pictures are all gorgeous ! I also love the black and white one it looks very artistic !
I never understand why one gets a price and the other not. Sometimes the ugliest pictures get a price, lol !

Bek said...

I love the b/w photo!! And also the one fishing for the treat:) I found pet photography actually quite difficult. They never look as cute on my pictures than in real life..

Jackie said...

Well we think Mrs P and Charlie should have won something too, and how could anyone not love a beautiful tuxie cat like Charlie, (who looks just like me anyway, we are so photogenic, mama ses so). Rappy
PS I like that new bed.

It's nice to see Mrs. P and Charlie so unruffled by the competition results, though how they couldn't have won with their stunning closeups defies all reason! You weren't kidding about Pepper being eager to see what her prizes were! LOL! Those rosettes are serious business! I'd have expected the kind of dinky ribbons given out at our county fair - I'm impressed! I love that Posky is generous enough to share a key part of his winnings with Mrs. P, and that he's confident enough in his masculinity to publicly nap in a pink bed! :-)

Barbara said...

Thank you all for the lovely compliments, Posky would like it to be known that real man cats do nap in pink :O)

Michael Rowland said...

Barbara, my cat's gone missing, maybe you could lend me one of yours?

Barbara said...

Oh no Michael, how terrible :O( I do hope you get him back.

Great photos, as always! You do so well to catch them in the act! Is your camera always within arm's reach?

I hadn't realised before how asymmetrical Pepper's while blaze is! It's very cute! :o)

Love the bed-sharing, too! Glad Poskers is secure enough in his masculinity to sleep in a pink bed. Not everyone could carry that off!

Barbara said...

Penny: It's pretty much an extension of my arm :O)
Pepper is very cute, she knows this and plays on it. David is putty in her paws. Posky is big enough to carry anything off without fear of ridicule :O)
