We’ve been having bad photo issues here this week. It has been dark and rainy since last weekend, and nearly all photography has ground to a halt. My human has been complaining that there is “no light” to work with, and she hates using full flash because it is “ugly” (as if any photograph with me in it could ever be ugly!). Meanwhile, we cats have not been cooperating either — we have spent the cold days curled up and napping, or in my human’s words, “doing nothing worth photographing,” only coming to life circa 10 or 11 P.M. (What can I say? 11 P.M. is a great time to pull out Da Bird!) So for lack of photo opps, I have been forced to dig into the sparklecat.com archives and pull out a few selections from October 2005, featuring: the Evil Halloween Clown Collar!
You have no idea how much I hated that thing! I don’t know or care where it came from — it was one of the worst fashion ideas my human ever had. One by one she forced us cats to pose in it. She woke Binga from a pleasant nap by shoving it on her. She was not pleased.
But at least Binga did not have to get up. I was forced to perform with the dumb thing on. It was without a doubt one of the most humiliating moments of my life.
Surprisingly, the only cat who out-and-out revolted was Boodie. She did the right thing by trying to destroy this piece of awful Halloween trickery.
Hmmm. Maybe the inclement weather was not such a bad thing. Who knows what my human was planning?
