if looks could kill!

growing up, i never took a great deal of photos of any of my pets. it is something i now lament since many of the memories i have of them are mostly recorded in my head and vague [what did hamster #11 look like again??]. so, as an adult i decided i would take lots of pictures. thankfully, digital cameras have been created — no more dealing with film and waiting for processing {and being disappointed with overexposures or blurred images AND having to pay for it!}. instant gratification :))

amusingly, the camera can be our best friend or worst enemy. yes, i admit it, i'm vain: i rip up (delete) pictures where i've been caught with bad hair and some strange expression on my face, looking like a deer caught in a car's headlights in the middle of the night! i get annoyed by
that person who always comes out looking great in every single photo! luckily, i have more good photos than bad ones. my rule, though, is never have your picture taken when you're not feeling 100%.

such is life — sometimes you can't avoid being photographed. the camera doesn't lie (but photoshop™ does!).

and,
as the saying goes: a picture is worth a thousand words. even cats have their bad days.

Burmese cats are notorious for not having the ability to smile. Your cat is a Burmese right? I have one too & he looks just as grumpy!

anna - yes, he's "fully" burmese in all ways! he's a wonderful cat and always by my side. his little escapades provide lots of entertainment, too.

i didn't know they couldn't 'smile'!
