The Catfather



One of the problems with writing my blog in the dark months is that the sun has not risen by the time I leave for work on weekdays, and it has set before I return home. Though I can take photographs during the evening, the apartment’s electric lights don’t provide the same illumination as our local star. I therefore usually take most of my pictures in the late autumn and the winter during the weekends. That’s why there may be some time between my entries at this season of the year.

That said, the lighting when the sun sinks into the west so early can make for some interesting images. That, and Tucker’s expression, had me think that this is what my roly poly would look like as a Mafia boss. When you have a problem, you bring it to…the Catfather.

  3. Hahaha! How did you ever get a picture or Tucker in this position? He does look pretty Mafia like, but a much gentler version.

    1. He sits that way from time to time; often, he uses that position to clean himself.

  4. Ha! He's one cat-father I wouldn't mind cuddling, either. I really like the shot; the combination of light and dark is great. :-)

    1. I don't often get good lighting like that, and almost never capture Tucker in his seriously contemplative mood.

  8. I know the feeling. My kitten room is in the basement and only has one window that faces the outside world now. I so need better lighting in that room
