Terrific Tuesday- From Russia with Love!


Thanks to CCL Wendy, Dante, Dylan & Domino...
These came from them all the way from Moscow!!!
What an awesome surPURRise!


Of course Tommy had to pose with them!



I think Pride looks like the largest one!


Pride wonders if he has 4 more kitties stacked inside of him?
When I picked him up today he feels like it!!!

Wow they are just amazing. I think I might need some of Smudge and Spider.

What a fantastic gift! The one looked almost like Tommy except that it had white on the chest. And Pride matched the big one purrfectly. My mom sure thinks they are neat too and wants to find a set, though she cannot go to Russia to get them. What nice friends you have sending you something so special.

Wow, I'm just glad you liked them so much! I never expected this kind of advertising!!!

The red one really does look like Pride, doesn't it? Bingo!

Those are lovely. We have some that the Awesome Step-Son brought us. Because I think he is the PAWSOMEST ever, I like them.

Carm, I enjoy your site so much!

Are your kitties naturally accustomed to posing for the camera, or do you need a "distraction" behind your back to get them to look up and regally sit back as you click the shutter? My cat always ends up crouching when she's self-conscious, and I know she could look way better in her pictures if I can get her to sit at attention! What is your secret if you have one?!

Thanks to all for the nice comments.

Thanks Daisy- The Maine Coon Cats were all shown in CFA. Part of that is to get them to sit up and look interested! That was years ago. Both Tommy and Pride were intially interested in the stacking cats. Then I took a peacock feather- I gently tap them on the head with it or just put it in front of their field of vision and snap it back to a place where I want them to focus. I go offside a bit as I was using the flash in these shots- not enough natural light available. You don't want them to look directly at the flash or you get that demon-eye look. Other than that they are HAMS! They will do something adorable and look at me like... well... aren't you going to get the camera?
