About my holiday kitty

Schatzi was "rescued" from a friend's backyard where she had too many siblings, and brought to me when she was 5 months old. She is a very shy cat, runs and hides in my bed when people come to the door, but also very sweet and possessive of me. She is not exactly a lap cat but likes to sit on my recliner with me and sleep at the foot end of my bed.

How did you dress or pose your cat?

This photo is from last year's Christmas - it's Schatzi and her Christmas present full of cat grass. I didn't pose her, just a lucky shot of my baby sitting in the window after Christmas, eating cat grass. It's hard nowadays to get her to hold still for a photo - the flash hurts her eyes and she turns her head or runs away she she sees my camera.

What I'd Do Differently

  • I would set up special lighting so I don't have to use the flash.
