3-D MANCAT MONDAY: HOW TO STRIKE A MANCATLY POSE

Dylan and Dante are here today to illustrate how best to strike a mancatly pose for the pawpawrazzi.

First and foremost, one should never look directly at the camera.  Stare into the distance like you are watching the most interesting thing you've ever seen in your life (even if it's just your old mamabean).  This requires some acting skill.  Posing isn't as easy at it seems.

Hold your head up high and open your eyes wide.  This will maximize your handsomeness.

Make sure your ears are always pointed forward.  Twitching ears don't make for a serious portrait.

Smile, but not too broadly.  Your smile should be enigmatic and mysterious.  Make them wonder what you may be thinking.
















And last but certainly not least, ALWAYS LEAVE THEM WANTING MORE!

You are two handsome mancats who pose very well. I was going to call you a pair of posers but mum said it sounds impolite. I don't know why because she often tells me I'm a little poser.

Your boys really know how to strike a pose! I think that is what is the most lovely about cat photos is that they mostly look off with that oblivious stare... totally unaffected by the photobug buzzing around them.

It's a shame you boys don't live in New Zealand. You'd be a shoe in for NZ's Next Top Cat Model!
