Award Shortlist   

Ferocious Feral Feline Female

By NDODS    
Good Morning to you all

I trust that you are well?

Thank you for you wonderful comments and votes following yesterdays upload of 'The Dog in the Pink Hat'. A further mentioned going to Kuvaillija (Jukka), Lifesnapper (John), Ali63 (Ali) and Jenny-D (Jenny) for presenting me with the most welcomed User Awards.

Todays upload was captured whilst rooting about in a nearby farmyard looking for possible subjects in which to photograph "With the owners permission" of course. I came across the wonderful short-haired Tabby who was snuggled down in a bail of hay. However after trying to approach her, she let out a huge hiss and stood up with her back arched and let me know quite clearly to not come any further.

I hope that you all have a great day

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin

They can inflict some serious damage with their claws Nathan, as I have found out in the past, but I still love them, you do not own a cat they own you, the slight soft focus is excellent. Have a great week end.


20 Sep 2013 11:18AM
Oh how wonderful, Nathan! This Tabby looks very much like our former cat Tupsu ( Tassel ) whom we miss very much. Sad that she was not very cooperative! Very lovely image though! ---- Jukka.

There is something in her eyes which says 'Don't get too close'. Did you get a picture of her with her back arched?
What a beautfiul girl Nathan.. she looks really well for a feral GrinGrin

Nathan you should know by now that the female species can be very temperamental, you should approach with caution but of course we can be temped with an array of goodies I find chocolate usually works, I'm sure a bowl of milk would suffice for this gorgeous feline BlushBlushBlush, seriously it's an excellent image, the sun is shining here & with the weekend off it's out with the camera GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Quote:Think I would have gone for a crop


I misread this slightly but if it it hissed at me it would not be a crop I went for. How looks can be deceptive.

Although not a massive cat lover.. Is that a hiss I hear.. You have captured a certain character here. You're getting the eye!
