Oliver and Earnest resting together--a lucky shot from a week or so ago.
It's not too challenging to snap a photo when kitties are caught napping.
However, today, I really wanted to get them together for a "buddy photo." Alas this was not to be! I tried many schemes...
shaking a favorite toy in their faces (only Earnest "bit"),
luring them with catnip (only Earnest was interested).
Then I got a string. Only Earnest wanted to play.
Even though posing is not their strong suit, both Earnest and Oliver are very cute. They do actually have many redeeming qualities, one of which is entertainment value. Yes, even when trying to take their portraits. (I think I'll keep them!)
I'm linking up with my favorite teacher, Ms Jenny Matlock, as we work our way through the alphabet. Please do go visit the other students, for you never know what gems you may find--humor, poignancy, information, visions of far away places, stuff you've never even dreamed of! Check it out HERE. You may even wish to join in yourself! This week our letter is "K."
