Sunday Selfie

As we've mentioned on more occasions than one, Eddy is our resident blooper queen. In fact, as per usual, she was our star in the Pet Photo Fails! Blog Hop on Friday. However, sometimes Eddy actually can sit still for more than half a second. Sometimes, she even manages a clear, focused selfie. She did just that for today, though this here human assistant of hers didn't quite set up the zoom properly. As a result, Eddy lost her ears and chin.

I love the color of Eddy's eyes (then again, I love the color of all cats' eyes). On certain days, in certain lighting, and all that jazz, Eddy's eyes are almost like an exceedingly pastel aquamarine. She has the palest eyes of any cat in the family, and I think they're beautiful.

Of course, Eddy snapped this selfie for the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, hosted by the Kitties Blue over at The Cat on My Head.

Happy Sunday, friends!

Doodle of the Day:

As I've mentioned over the past couple of days, lately I've been feeling inspired to scribble up doodles of a more magical sort. In particular, I've been sketching up some Harry Potter-esque doodles, but with cat-centric subject matter. Today's doodle of this sort looks somewhat similar to yesterday's, and that's because I created them simultaneously and indecisively.

Did you know?
Did you know that, because a cat's eyes are disproportionately large compared to their body, a cat can't see anything less than roughly a foot in front of them? This would explain why a cat can focus in on prey from a distance, but can't manage to find the treat you just placed right in front of their face. The size and resulting composition of a cat's eyes is in large part why they simply can't see or focus on something placed directly in front of them. To help your kitty find a nearby treat or toy they can't locate, try putting it in motion or moving it to a farther distance.

Yes BUT you managed a magnificent clear and sharp eye. The focus in INTENSE and speaks volumes!

Well done!

Nature, and Eddy, have the BEST colour palette in town, for sure. A gorgeous selfie that really doesn't need the chin or ears to make it work.

Those are beautiful eyes and a fun doodle and yes, you do have to put the treat where they can see it and smell it for them to find it.

Just like The PO'M, Eddy has beautiful eyes, and gorgeous fur and whiskers! I love the long, curly tailios on your doodle cats.
