Happy Birthday, Laura

Happy Birthday, Laura
Getting in early for Laura's birthday in-case we lose power again. Happy 4th. It is so windy here today & Rango is very frightened, mostly keeping her eyes shut. Lens aperture f/3.2, shutter speed 1/40sec, focal length 4mm, ISO 100.

Rango looks comfortable anyway, but his ears are on hight alert, so it seems.

A beautiful portrait, Chris.
And a wonderful BD card for Laura.

Again: Happy Birthday, dear birthday girl :)

Very fine image of the beautiful Rango! Love the second shot as well. Hope she came out of the wind storm without too much trauma. Happy Birthday to Laura as well.

Wonderful captures, Chris, she is a beauty. My cats are also scared of the storms.

Thank you all for the comments. We've had another birthday today, our Grand-dog Ivy was 5, Rango opted out.

I've been sitting here doing the MASS MAIL OUT for our business.

What a darling image of sweet Rango and such a thoughtful dedication, Chris!!!

Please forgive my tardiness!!!

Rango looks like he is pretending to be sleeping...Cats do hate wind don't they? Somehow they settle down however if we humans don't seem as freaked out as they feel like being.

I used to have to hold Lucky during a thunder storm. He'd come right to me and stand tight to my legs until I picked him up. Finally I'd feel his neck muscles relaxing as I'd give him a rubdown. Pookey? NO WAY! He'd squirm away from our arms in a storm. Fangy? He seems rather deaf now so only the vacuum cleaner slightly bothers him these days. He is glad Lucky and Pookey passed away. They were both mean to him. Lol...He was the unwelcome 3rd child to them. Three adult male cats in one home...None taken in as kittens...EEK!

I love the second image here, too.

Thanks again Chris and Rango and Thank You Everyone for your Birthday Wishes for me! I had a great day. Dinner out and a Movie.

We saw "Last Vegas" Very funny movie. The whole theatre laughed LOUDLY more than 5 times!!!

-Sister Laura :D

All is forgiven, we knew you'd be back sooner or later, after all you were on the Moon & had to get through all that food & drink & finish partying. Your night out at the movies sounded great. Cats certainly have their own ways & it seems there is no use trying to change it.

Poor little Rango ~ reacting to the wind that way. But she sure is cute in both photos, Chris. A perfect birthday card from one cat-lover to another.
A belated Happy Birthday to you, Pommers!

Thanks so much. I had to put her in her travel cage when the hail started, she couldn't work out who was hitting all the windows & I was worried one would break on her. We've only had a mild, short storm today, now it's sunny & warm as you'd expect for this time of year.
