And now, two unbelievably cute pictures of our cat.
At last, at long last, we have photos of Violet that do her justice. Violet, as you can see, is a strikingly beautiful cat; but she's very hard for us to photograph. Our apartment doesn't get much natural light, and when we use the flash, (a) it makes her just look like a big black lump, and (b) she closes her eyes against the flash, thus obscuring her most distinctive feature -- the heterochromia (different-colored eyes).
But Ingrid found her sitting in the back windows, and got these two stunning pictures of her. I asks ya. Is that a beautiful cat, or what? The second one with the heterochromia is obviously spectacular; but I actually like the profile a little better. It makes her look so noble.
And once again, I need to share with you our Violet's Blue Eye song:
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 patience.
