Indeed, she really did break the lamp, just not in that setting. Heida is one insanely playful cat, so all I did was put cheese on the chair and peek from the other side of the table at her to start the peek-a-boo war. I took it last minute and wish I hadn't so that I could do some more editing, but oh well!

I like this, good capture, i especially enjoy the cat! :)

This made me laugh! The expression on the cat's face... is just HILARIOUS! I think part of what makes it so funny is that I am QUITE farmiliar with that expression myself... :) My own cat gives me that look at her dinner time, as if to say, "Why haven't you fed me yet? What is your problem?" lol. A beautiful shot.

That cat is hillarious! You 're a lucky owner. I love the humorous take of this one. :o)

Thanks so much for all the comments! Especially the one from Gunnsi who called me a genius- you are my new favorite person. ;-)

I'm glad the humor was appreciated, sending most of my gratitude to my mother who was less angry at my cat and me for the broken lamp once she saw the picture.

There was no work to get her to pose as long as it was done through play (and cheese)- she is just a nutty cat. Even as I'm typing she's bouncing 10 feet in the air chasing shadows. But she sends more thanks than I do that her picture got a ribbon!

Thank you, thank you, thank you.. and thank you!
02/17/2006 02:06:07 PM

congratulations on your placing...well deserved. The cat's expression wins me over. Great co-operation by the feline!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Didn't get to vote on this one but I definitely would have given you accolades ... similar to the following:

I can always appreciate extra effort that involves more than just a studio type set-up. In fact, the non-studio looking setting here brings comfort and makes something that looks real as well as nostalgic. I think the reason people generally don't like the usual cat image is that it indicates that someone just pointed-and-shot ... their cat. This is a great interaction and plan with which you succeeded. Congrats - this is more inspirational than the DQ'd image.
