Just a fun shot of Arlo, with one eye open. This is an old shot. Nothing to do with his current eye issue, which is getting better. Poor guy is getting tired of wearing the cone of shame, though.
Yet another one of the gorgeous cats at Ragnificent Ragdolls. I would take more home with me, but our house is full! We have 2 poodles, 3 ragdolls, and Stormy, a Bombay.
Abby is still my favorite model. She is ever so patient with me. She is going to the vet, Monday, to have her mysterious hair loss looked at.
This is the only picture that I can find of Annie, my mom’s Ragdoll. Annie just passed away.
This is a fun photo using selective desaturation. All colors are removed, except for blue. Abby has very blue eyes to start with, but this treatment really makes them pop.
A few days ago, we noticed that Arlo had a red eye. We had him checked out, before leaving for a weekend. It turns out that he had a 103 degree fever, and his eye was about to burst. We had no idea that he was this sick. Arlo is feeling better, now, so we are pretty sure that he’s going to be around for a while, but it is still touch and go with his eye. Our pets, especially Ragdolls, will not complain. You really have to keep an eye on things, to know if they are sick or hurt. It’s easy if they are coughing, or have GI issues, but fevers, tumors, bites, and puncture wounds can easily go unnoticed.
Mushu is quite the ham. I have a lot of photographing this cat. I’m hoping to visit Wendy, at Ragnificent Ragdolls again, soon. I hope the other cats will get a turn.
These lovelies are Ragnificent Ragdolls Kit Kat, and Milky Way. Definitely a couple of sweet cats. They are Abby’s niece and nephew. Awesome little cats!
This is one of the first shots done with strobe lighting. I really like the way her eyes pop. It is amazing what having sufficient light can do for saturation. She’s such a sweet little cat, putting up with me using her as a subject for all sorts of photographic experiments. At first, her asymmetrical markings put me off. They really grow on you, kind of like a beauty mark. I’m not sure what the official classification of her markings would be. She has blue points, white socks, and some tortie, asymmetrical markings. We know that she is pure Ragdoll, but she does seem to show some Birman heritage. Sweet little cat…
This is Abby’s mom, Ragnificent Ragdolls Pixie Stix. She’s a really neat cat. I can see where Abby gets her personality.
