CATS ON TUESDY - How to make a header

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


I wanted to make a new header for my blog Writer's cramps. For this purpose I took the basket I had decorated for spring, my "baby" computer and a book about cats. I thought this would nicely represent writer's cramps.

What I hadn't seen was the mirror in my cat collection vitrine.


I saw myself kneeling on the floor. This wasn't very serious. Meanwhile Rosie had showed up and wondered what I was doing there on my knees.


immediately she decided to be part of the picture


I kindly asked her to go away


but she had first to check on the book


then the computer

finally the basket with fake flowers, so not very interesting


suddenly I saw my chance ! this was a nice header ! But no, I was again in the picture !!

Finally Rosie did me a favour and sat in the right place to hide myself, still kneeling on the floor with my camera. I decided for this picture then. What a photo session !

After that, looking out of the window I saw Arthur checking on the neigbor houses.


first one


then the other. My neighbours told me that they are so happy that Arthur is back from his hibernation and that he does his visits again. I am sure in a while he will put on weight !

What a great series of photos. The same thing happens whenever I try to take pictures...everyone has to help! But Rosie is a wonderful model.

It is good to see Arthur outside enjoying the spring weather!

Rosie, I salute u for a clever decision for your mommy!

That really makes a good and nice new header!

Arthur, it is good for you to be active!

Burn some fat, Arthur! LOL!

Rosie does add class to your picture. And don't you have lovely neighbours! Bet Arthur is getting more than his share of visitor's treats.

I think Arthur is really a famous star around your neighbors, that is awesome~!!!!

And I think Rosie is very lovely~!

Great photo session! Nice background and model too...haha!

Arthur the King is back on his royal visits around the neighbourhood...err.. 'kingdom' again? ;)

What a hard work for a header photo. Rosie is a lovely background.
How nice that Arthur run around to visit his neighbors again.
We have sunshine here , yeah, finally!

Hahaha! It's so true, when you want to take a lovely photo, a cat appears to check everything out and ends up being in the photo. And I could see you in the mirror!

So Arthur is out and about in the neighbourhood again...the weather us obviously getting warmer for him.

We think Rosie looks nice in the photo. We kitties hide from pictures you want us in, and insist on being in the ones you don't want us in it seems.

Lovely pics. W cats are very good at getting in on the pictures. But seems like it worked out fine for this one.

Lovely photo session! It's so true...when I would like one of the gang to pose, they don't want to do it. But let me try to take a picture *without* them and they must come and be in the picture anyways, LOL!

Dora said...

Rosie is a curious cat and Arthur is an explorer! ;)

Tricia said...

Rosie is quite the model/photographer's assistant, don't forget to give her an extra treat for her services.

Arthur looks like he is really happy to be out and about. Bet he will fatten up with all his neighbor visiting.

Oh Rosie, you are such a good model! Do you miss Arthur when he is on his visits? I'm sure you two have lots to chat about when he returns. Great post! Happy Tuesday. :)

That last picture with Rosie among the objects is perfect. It's funny how the cats want to be part of everything.

Unknown said...

Very beautiful photos. I just loved them. I am too scared to let my cats outside, Skitto was shot with a b b gun in the head so they never go out anymore. God bless.

I took a polaroid picture of my ex-mother-in-law's new bedroom one time. As it started to develop... I said.. what is that dark thing in the middle.... There on the floor, smack in the dead center of the picture was Shamroc, one of my Siamese. He was posed and looking straight at the camera and I had not even known he was in the room.

Rosie is smarter than you realize.
And Arthur again pleases the neighbour. It's spring in the Air.
