Friday Cat Blogging: Violet’s Blue Eye

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.

    You know, as much as cats and I don’t get along and as much as I hate cat blogging, I like your cat blogging.
    Well, for one, you only do it once a week. It’s always once a week, and it’s always just one post, with a few pics. I can deal with once a week. I know it’s coming. And it’s not that often. And you don’t overly gush over them, OMG AREN’T THEY TEH CUUUUTEST THINGS, you talk about them reasonably intelligently… or at least as intelligently as one can talk about the fuzzy creatures they love.
    And that little song is quite lovely.
    So, yeah, cat blog on, woman! :-)
    (As for the heterochromia, it actually looks a bit freaky in that pic. I guess I’m just not used to it. Does it look less… startling… in real life?)

    Here’s the song I sing to my cats, Sissy Lou and Danger Todd:
    Stop looking at me, with those unblinking eyes,
    That expressionless gaze, curiosity’s disquise.

    Actually, though I’ve already done my gushing, I’ll also add that the velvet ripples of fur come out wonderfully as well. The first photo especially. So yes Ingrid, good job! Now bar the windows so people don’t try to steal your jeweled treasure.
