The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Photo #1

New little paws in our home.
Lucy showed up about 3 weeks
ago- meowing and meowing.
We took her in while canvassing
the neighborhood trying to find
where she belonged. No such luck.
But lucky us- she lives with us now
and she is the best cat ever!

What a great idea. I can't run the camera since I do not have an opposable thumb. I make the human take my pictures. Maybe next time you'll get really lucky and find a wandering goat to adopt!

I like the aspect of this, with the cat paws perched on the window sill... like a little story.

(And I know darned well she sits there all the time)

Obviously she was a gift, which you were wise to accept.

Interesting cam angle! All of my cats have been previously abandoned, n the best behaved, appreciative animals n best friends I've ever had too! Enjoy her-
Cute, fuzzy, grey paws!
