You Don't Say

By cameracat
Hi Folks,

Yes its pussy time agagin......Grin

There is a crazy idea that animals do not have expressions, What a load of rubbish.....!!!

Anyone who has studied a particular species will have seen a range of expressions, Though reading them is not so easy, We humans tend to misread them or read to much into them using our own expressions, Its hard for us to get into the mind of our creatures great or small.....Sad

I am not claiming to be an expert in cat expressions, But I have been making a study of these critters for many years, They do have a range of expressions, Though I do not understand them all, The obvious ones like being happy to see you when you get home, This is repeated so ofetn that you can't fail to recognise it......Grin Grin Grin

Whatever, Its sometimes a fun thing to translate an expression into one that fits our take......Grin

So here we have my boy " Ziggy " he glanced my way for a split second during his regular grooming session, Read this expression anyway you like...Smile The title is purely my take on it.......Wink

Ziggy's so handsome and distainful. A beautiful cat, living up to the breed attributes I expect, and rightly so. Superb shot in mono.

it is , of course a shot I like very much.
and you are absolutely right about expressions, also about them teaching you what the want. like leave me alone, I'm busy.
look at me, I'm posing for you!

and they tell you about all sorts of things but we are so daft at times. Elrond has a different call for me on a walk than for his mate. Same goes for Fafnir. took me a while to work out whom they were calling. They got their way to call when they want to be dried.
