TUXY TUESDAY WITH DOMINO: STAR TREETMENT!

While the boys honed in on the decoration of the Christmas tree (see yesterday's post), Domino took a laidback approach.  She just relaxed and watched from across the room, until mama literally got in her face with the flashy box.  This ultimately caused her to leave the vicinity only to return after the deed was done.

Domino was just keeping an eye on things ...

... she was purrfectly content ...

... until mama flashed that bulb in her eyes ...

... and kept bugging her to turn her head.

Mama thought the little PURRsed lips were so very, very cute.

But that wasn't enough! Much to Domino's 'chat' grin, mama just kept pestering her.





































So she stood up for herself and exited stage right!  The real star has left the room.  The one on top of the tree can't hold a candle to Domino ('cause she doesn't want her fur to catch fire!).

I hate it when the flash gets to close to my face. I do not blame you for leaving!

WOW! That is really close up!

When my human uses flash, she keeps a respectful distance away from me. When it's not on, sometimes I keep a disrespectful non-distance away from the lens.

Mums can be soooooooo annoying.

We leave too, Domino.

Actually, the mom read a quick trick on a photography site a while ago -- hold a folded-up Kleenex over the flash to diffuse the light. But your mom probably has a light diffuser with her photo equipment, whereas our mom just has the point & shoot. But she finds that a doubled-up (or even folded in four) tissue works pretty well. It gives enough flash without being blinding.

We certainly wouldn't let our Mommy do that to us. That was so close to you. She tries to catch us off guard, then when we see what she is doing, we are out of there with great speed. But those are terrific pictures. Take care and have a fun day.

I hate the flashy box Domino, but I will pose occasionally if I am bribed with treats, otherwise I walk off like you.

We think we are decorating for our own enjoyment... when in fact we are enriching our kitties' environment! : )
