How many kitties do you have Cindy? Seems like you always have a new kitten to pose for you! Gorgeous as usual! My whole house would be filled with these kitty phots if I had these kittens and created these beautiful works of art! I am still amazed they lie so still, especially since they are kittens and kittens are usually so playful! #1446350

Thank you all for your kind comments! Carol - if you only knew! I have 5 cats but Chloe isn't mine. And, she DID NOT want to lie still or pose. Some kittens (most actually) do very well - especially with the continuous lights as they are warm. I worked with this kitten for almost 2 hours (with breaks of course) and got only 3-4 usable images. She simply refused to look at the camera and give me a sweet expression or nod of the head. What can you do? Hope the next baby is a sweet little poser >^,,^<

Thanks so much for the answer Cindy. While I can see the lights being warm, I just am amazed they will stay still in the boxes. I just remember some of my Siamese kittens. I don't think they were ever still unless they were asleep! And 2! You make it look so easy but now we takes lots of patience! #10013840

Amazing work,Cindy!!Love it! #10014506

Siamese are another story - extremely active. They are born talkers, climbers and explorers. Hmmm - just wondering if Chloe isn't 100% Ragdoll as they are very laid back and tolerant as a rule. If she has Siamese genes that would explain her resistance. #10014788

I knew we would see this one again Cindy! Congrats! And yes, the Siamese are so talkative and active! I have owned Siamese for years now and I suppose I will always have one. The one I have now is long-hair and not as vocal as some of mine have been. But she was never socialized properly before coming to me (which I didn't know at the time) and so she has always been sort of timid. Not your traditional Siamese for sure! Good luck in the next round! #10061523
