Sunday Selfie

We have a selfie for your today. After all, it is time for Sunday Selfies! What's more, today's selfie is one that you certainly shouldn't get used to, because the star is generally not all that willing to pose for the camera. So, who is today's selfie star? It's Winky!

We know it's not always easy to keep track of all the furbabies running around here, so in case you need a refresher, Winky is the litter mate of my calico girl Tonks. Winky owns my sister. Since my sister lives with us, of course so do her kitties Winky and Toby.

Speaking of my sister, she and I may or may not have had to tag team it in order to help Winky snap her selfie. In other words, do you see my hand in Winky's selfie? That's right, I had to hold the girl in place while my sister handled the camera. That was the only way Winky agreed to share a selfie today, so that's simply what had to happen.

Have a super Sunday, friends!

Our Doodle of the Day:

As we mentioned yesterday, we're continuing our Christmas in July doodles until July 25th. After all, that's the Christmas in July, right?

Our Tip of the Day:

There are a number of potential ways to get your furbaby to sit still for a photo shoot or to get them to look at the camera. You can try the technique of getting on their level, such as sitting on the floor with the camera if that is where your kitty or pup is playing or spending time. It may take lots of patience and sitting and waiting for a moment to snap a shot, but it is often doable. You can also situate yourself where your kitty or pup is sleeping, as a sleeping furbaby is a still furbaby.

Then again, you can also try distraction techniques. As you can probably guess, and as you have likely tried on an occasion or two, you can grab one of your kitty or pup's favorite treats or toys and hold that up or sit it on top of your camera. If this grabs your furbaby's attention, then you might very well have a split-second chance to snap a shot while they are gazing at the goods. If you're really eager to get a photo or two of your furbaby and you're having trouble getting them to cooperate while also manning the camera, you can also try to recruit a second pair of hands, such as to hold the furbaby or to help better distract them. 

Sometimes, photographing our furbabies is simply not the easiest task. But, we all love having photographs of our furbabies to forever hold those memories. So, sometimes you simply have to find the photo shoot technique that works best for your furbaby. Whether it be waiting to photograph them while they're sleeping or grabbing their attention with treats, find what works best and have the camera at the ready.

How lovely to see Winky, and I'm struggling to recall when I last did. But as they say absence makes the heart grow fonder, and Winky sure looks a very sweet young lady, and has quite a natural pose too.

Winky you look rather pensive in your Sunday Selfie today - do you have BIG things on your mind today or are you watching a bunny hop by outside? Great selfie......

Hugs, Teddy

When snapping photos, the most important thing to bring is patience! Sometimes you need to plan to spend an hour or two in order to get exactly the shot you want.

Winky is wonderful!

Winky takes a fine selfie. Great drawing and excellent tips. Many times I need my hubby to hold a kitty still then I crop him out of the photo.

Is Winky a little like Eddie? All blur? Well, she is a kitten so it's certainly understandable. What a treat to see her!

Great doodle of Winky and penguin! Sometimes, while I'm snapping pics, The Hubby will stand behind me and wave his hands or toys to get the kitties to look! We must look a sight!
