It’s time again for some outtakes, so I can show you what happens around here when cat photography goes wrong! Like in the above photo. I have no idea why I was looking at these poop bags like they were some delectable cat treats. What was I thinking?
Along with giving me treats, my human sometimes pulls out a fun toy to keep me lively during photo sessions. I think I was a little too lively with this toy — I kept pulling out those purple strands. After every photo session my human wound up picking up and tossing about 5 or 6 of the strands, and now there are hardly any left on the stick.
This outtake was definitely treat motivated! As if you couldn’t tell.
My bikini photo session had a lot of outtakes! This awkward pose was just one of many.
Why did my human decide to snap a photo at just the moment when I looked my goofiest? It’s really embarrassing.
This photo of Binga isn’t really an outtake, just one that never got used for anything. But I know you like seeing photos of her, so I thought I’d add it.
I hope you enjoyed my outtakes today!
Summer, you might be a wee bit too hard on your human. I’m sure that she is trying her best, and she does shoot wonderful photos of you!
Catherine Lingg says
Sorry Summer, my fav shot was of Binga, gorgeous with the winding staircase
Lesley castle says
Pic 2 is fab. Kitty bikini photos too! Binga is a pampered puss!
My goodness, you were super-intent on killing that purple toy, weren’t you?
Catherine lingg says
Love them all but the purple ribbon is paws down my fav
Summer give your human a break you are so cute it’s hard to juggle everything.
sue brandes says
Love your outtakes.
Fun outtakes. Binga looks like she knows the same game our Rufus the Red plays on the stairs. Our cat sitter invented it while we were away. It’s called, “Pet me or fall down the stairs”… It’s especially effective in the dark.
Cathy Keisha says
Love the outtakes. TW bought a wand toy where the ribbons come out and unravel and she stopped using it cos she’s afraid I’ll swallow one. As if I’m that dumb.
Savannah's Paw Tracks says
Your outtakes are the best Summer and Binga just looks so content
Andrea and the Celestial Kitties says
LOL, love the out takes! That one with the dog poo bags.. looks like you’re sticking your tongue out at them, “ha ha, doggies have to carry their poo!” hee hee!
Love all the pictures! Including Binga! She has the catbird spot there, doesn’t she?
Please don’t be discouraged when it looks like people don’t see your blog posts (as you said on facebook) Don’t look at the numbers, look at the people you make smile! Even if it were one person, you made their day and it’s worth it! But I know you have lots of followers. Not everyone comments every time.. But you have to know you have a much loved blog here!
Spitty the Kitty says
Is Binga trying to join the ranks of serial killers? ‘Cause I’m thinking she is purrfectly positioned for her first(?) kill.
There really is no such thing as an outtake of you, Summer. You always look adorable.
Glogirly cats says
Summer, those are hardly outtakes! They’re awesome!
In fact, Glogirly is always trying to get photos of us with our mouths open. ; )

Your strand photo is awesome! Such intensity in your eyes, like, you mean business buster, and don’t you ever forget it! Binga! What a great spot ! Tucked in, perfectly sized, and perfect for that tripping hazard that we’re almost positive you’d never think of doing. MOL!
Memories of Eric and Flynn says
You look like you are saying, “I’ve opened wide, now pop those pieces of meat stick in.
mark's mews says
We see the “airplane ears” in that 1st picture! You were NOT happy…
Toby and Leia says
Always funny! And we also love that staircase. Binga looks very glam on it. And she knows it.
In the first first bikini photo outtake, your front legs remind me of Toto from the Wizard of Oz. In the food-motivated outtake, if you photoshop out your tongue, you’d look like you’re talking.
And thanks for sharing a photo of Binga.
The Island Cats says
Now those are some funny outtakes. Itâ€™s nice to see a pro like you, Summer, has problems sometimes.
Melissa & Mudpie says
Those are great! You have such cute expressions.
The Poupounette Gang says
It’s always fun to see your outtakes, Summer, and yes, we do enjoy photos of Binga!
the Dash Kitten Crew says
Love the outtakes BUT love the Binga picture. Very arty!
caren gittleman says
I actually love the staircase in Binga’s photo
Roby Sweet says
Your outtakes are always terrific, Summer. Those must be some awesome poop bags! Hi, Binga! 🙂
I always enjoy the outtakes. they are so much fun. Binga looks very comfortable on the step.
sue brandes says
Love your outtakes and Binga’s photo.
Such cute outtakes!Our mom has to take like 100 photos to just get one. She’s looking into getting a remote for her camera.
CRAIG S. C. OKAJIMA says
Binga’s fur looks very nice in that stair photo!
I actually love pictures of cute cats with their tongue out, because it makes me think of a cat food commercial!
Meezer's Mews & Terrieristical Woofs says
Those were fun pictures! And that sure is a steep spiral staircase.
Petcretary shudders to think how many times she would be in a heap at the bottom…her and stairs are not a good combo, even if the stairs are ‘normal’…just ask her family about the tally of stairs competing to trip her up, MOL!
Katie Isabella says
Binga…if you look at the picture just right, looks as though she is Venus rising from an oyster shell…the stairs if you blur them with squinty eyes could serve as the pleated-look shell.
Pee Ess. That was mommy! She should be banned from making comments. She embarrasses me.
Purrjamm Cats says
Your pictures always make for a great day! Love Binga’s dungeon pose. She must be guarding her domain, MOL. Purrs
I always enjoy your outtakes! I really love the ones from bikini photo session!
The Florida Furkids says
These are all great but that first one REALLY had us MOL!

MOL Summer you are so funny European meat sticks.
Great outtakes my friends
Hugs madi your bfff
emma and buster says
Oh your outtakes are darlings you know that. And we take it as a personal favor granted to us when we get Binga photo for no reason at all.
William's Kith & Kin says
Summer, cat photography goes wrong about 99.8% of the time at our house, and our outtakes are nowhere near as cute.
Hi there, Binga, you doll you!
The outtakes are fun and that photo of Binga is terrific.
Eastside Cats says
Blep photos of you, Summer, are some of my favorites!
I also like the one of Binga, on the spiral staircase; I want the spiral staircase of my own!
Ellen Pilch says
Those are all great outtakes. Sports Illustrated would be lucky to have you.
Kitties Blue says
Dear Summer, Please forgive us for not gifting you with your favorite bed from The Cat Style Lounge. Momma Kat tipped Mom and Dad off and said we should give it to you, but we love beds and caving, and with eight of us there are never enough.
We always adore your outtakes. We think you are adorable no matter what you do! That second photo really cracked us up. Sawyer is eyeing those stairs and thinking how much fun it would be to sprint up and down them, including jumping right over Binga.
