Meezery Monday


May Ling here.

I have a little secret to share with you:  I am Extremely Difficult to photograph.
It's true!

For every halfway acceptable photo Mommy gets of me, she gets about fifty like this: 

or, Cod forbid, like THIS: 
ha ha ha ha!!!!

Mommy says digital is the only way to go with a kitteh of my camera-avoiding abilities.

I thought it would be a nice thing to do (and I'm all about the nice) and share my tried-and-true technique for messing up a photo session--it's easy--KEEP MOVING!  Keep the mood all lovey dovey so you get the pets, but never, ever, stand still for a second.

Mommy would like to point out that if she wasn't so dang lazy was determined enough she'd haul out the regular camera and use the sport setting; but like I said she's a unorganized spur of the moment type gal and prefers to use her phone, instead.  Lucky for me...

So remember, friends--a moving kitteh means a frazzled peep!

Happy Meezer Monday!

  1. Binga's even worse when it comes to photographs! It must be a tortie thing.

  2. Our hard to photograph kitteh is Preslee. He's never still, not for a second!
    We enjoyed the effort it took your Mommy to video and photograph you. It's totally worth it!

  3. OH what a lover you are! So cute, May Ling! And that's an excellent tip!
    There's only one thing I don't understand... Knowing your mommy, who regularly posts pictures of the boys... in flagrante delicto, why would she give you a modesty smilie? Seems out of character for her, MOL

  4. Mirksu is all awibble. It's going to take DAYS for him to settle. He keeps head butting the screen to get into that tunnel. But we need to warn you - he is well angry at your Mommy's photo editing!

  5. You are so right! I keep moving, so it's hard for Mom to get a good shot but Toby doesn't really like to move.

  6. May Ling, you and Patty O'Malley have that moving around thing down pat! Patty just wants to be touching me, so when I try to stand a few feet away to take a photo, he moves toward me and all I get is a blurry shot...well, and some Patty love. For every one good pic I get, there are dozens of blur or just an ear...or that notorious backside pic!

  7. bob Dylan was quoted as saying the reason he doesn't like being photographed is each picture takes a little more of your soul away. i'll pass on your strategy to him next time I see him.

  8. LOL. Sadie has another tip: sleep in dark places. Hard to photograph in low light!

  9. She is so sweet!! constant movement and booty funny!!!

  10. Oh May Ling you are one big sweetheart. So sweet.

    Emma and Buster

  11. mom has just the opposite problem with Daiquiri - she wants to get UP CLOSE and personal with the camera MOL

  12. That was a nice video of you May Ling. Eric was the hard to photo one. He would look away or walk up too close. Most of his photos were taken with the zoom. My mum says I'm a proper little poser though. I think it is a compliment but I'm not sure by the tone of her voice.

  13. Funny, Georgia ,a Tortie , is much the same.
    She stares at you until the shutter goes and looks away.
    Mom gas to take a kazillion pics to get a good one ;) MOL!
    Treasure tries to run away and Julie always wants to walk up to
    mum and head butt the camera. JJ poses.
    We have fun with mum! MOL!
    Purrs Georgia and Julie,
    Treasure and JJ

  14. We really liked your video May Ling :)
    You are so cute.

  15. Way to keep her on her toes, May Ling. You can't make it too easy on the humans or they'll take you for granted.

  16. May Ling, I do the same thing. I don't like my picture taken...and if the lady with the yellow hair gets one of me, she's darn lucky!

  17. Well done May Ling! We're pretty good at the moving thing too but the bean keeps catching us when we're napping. And then she says that is all we efur unfair.

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  18. Great video, you are a sweetie.

  19. We like that technique of heading into the tunnel to avoid being photographed. We're going to have to add that to our bag of tricks. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  20. It must be a Meezer thing - Lita is a master at avoiding the camera, too!!

  21. Videos are way better anyway!

  22. TKS never stops moving her head and she always looks away from the camera. Being all black doesn't help either. Loved seeing you love on Mommy's leg


Oh Boy...this is gonna be GREAT!
