If you have a cat, you'll love this video

We have three cats at our house:

  1. A fat orange bastard named Chester who hates everyone and would sooner smack you in the face with his claws than say good morning. Fortunately, Chester is old and won't be around much longer. I know it sounds bad, but I mean that in the nicest way. Mostly.
  2. A lazy calico female named Cleo. Cleo sleeps all day. She's kind of cute-- when she's not dropping 2 tonnes of white, brown and black fur all over the freakin' house.
  3. A beautiful but skittish seal point tipped Siamese named Simon. Simon was rescued from our parking lot while we were living in a small apartment at Danforth and Pape. He's my favourite, but he's got some habits that we're not too happy about... that's why Simon takes anti-depressants every day. Sigh.

So when I saw the Simon's Cat "Fly Guy" video on YouTube, a lot of the video hit really close to home. So much so that I had to share it with you here. If you're a cat owner, you'll understand. If you're not... well... I get that too. I'm a dog person inside, but I tolerate the cats because of the women in my life. Enjoy!


Photo of the Day

Here's Cleo, one of our cats. She's not my favourite, mostly because she just lays around all day and expects to be pet. I took this photo shortly after purchasing my camera and I didn't really know what the heck I was doing. ISO: 400, Exp: 2.5 sec, Aperture: f/4.5, Focal length: 100mm.

Photo of the Day

This picture of Chester was taken a little while ago while I was experimenting with my new Sigma 10-20 super wide angle lens on my Canon 30D. I like the effect because it makes Chester's paw in the foreground seem larger than it is. I also like the rest of the composition with the colour of the wall, the bright green comforter, the lava lamp, guitar and rock poster. This photo really shows off what a lazy cat Chester can be.
