We have some random photos from recent photo shoots we thought you would enjoy even though they didn’t really fit into the blog posts with the rest of the photos taken at the time.
Ashton and the Cat Window Chair
Ashton’s standoff with Newton at the cat window included a photo of her peeking over the corner of the chair back.
When we moved to this house, we knew the cat window would be a popular hangout. The problem turned out to be that it is right next to the kitchen table and chairs, and when the chairs were pushed in, there was a very narrow space for cats to jump up. Cats can’t jump straight up and then magically change directions to go forward in the air, so they would scramble at the windowsill to make it up there. The solution was simple, pulling the chair nearest the window out at an angle so the cats can use it as a step to get into the window. Ashton is peeking over the back of that chair in the photo.
Pierre At Atention
Pierre looks so interested in something in this photo. This was part of the photos taken when he was hunting the hedgehog toy.
This entire photo shoot took place much earlier than it was published. We took the photos on a Saturday, and the next day was when he got so sick with what we didn’t know at the time was a pancreatitis attack. That scary week when he was so sick, we kept looking at these photos thinking how healthy and playful he was less than a day earlier, and we used them to explain to the vet how suddenly it had come on.
We didn’t publish any of them until he was feeling better because they all felt like they were part of that event. Thankfully, Pierre has been doing really well, and you would never know he’s a senior kitty. He is still crazy about that hedgehog toy, too!
Cupcake Dives In
The story about celebrating National Fried Chicken Day needed to be about Ashton, because she still hopes to open her Chicken Emporium someday. But we have to admit, Cupcake’s photo took the cake. Or is that took the chicken?
It really looks like she’s diving right into that KFC bucket, doesn’t it? She was actually backing out of it when the shutter snapped.
Diving in or climbing back out, she really did get some crumbles left over from Ashton’s part of the photo shoot, and that snack was what she thought was the important part!
