And now, four cute pictures of our cat. (Typepad was down on Friday night, which is why this week's Friday Cat Blog pictures are going up on Saturday.)
Violet is really the beauty of our cat family (as well as being the diva), but she's very hard to photograph. Our apartment doesn't get much light, and with the flash she tends to just look like a shapeless black lump. Plus the flash makes her close her eyes, so you can't see her different colored eyes, which are spectacular.
But Ingrid got this series of her on a sunny day in the brightest room of the house, and I think they turned out amazingly well. Please note the exquisite "tuck and roll" formation in Pictures 1 and 3; the paw over the eyes in Picture 2, and the heterochromia (different colored eyes) visible in Pictures 3 and 4. (You can click on the photos to enlarge and get a better view of the eyes.) Please also note the little black spot on her pink nose, and the way the white patch on her face cuts across her blue eye.
And speaking of which, I have to share with you the song Ingrid wrote about Violet and her one blue eye:
Why don't you scritch me like you used to do?
Why do you treat me like a worn out shoe?
My fur is still furry and my eye is still blue
So why don't you scritch me like you used to do?
That is all. Thank you for your time.
