Here's how it went.
The first rule of posing is to step away from the camera when the shutter is about to click. But when you're a kitten, you sometimes have to check things out with your nose. After all, you can't see very far! So I have a ton of photos like this. Cute, but not quite what we were looking for.
But this is better. Clearly, Fergus has been watching his pro foster brother Liam pose for photographs. He even has the dog smile thing down!
Nicely done, Fergus! And just in time, too. At 6 weeks old (or so), kittens need a ton of sleep. So while they can run and play and pose for photos, they also need to get their beauty sleep. So after a few minutes of posing, Fergus was ready to head back to bed.
Or should I say: Near to bed. I put out this dog bed for the kids yesterday, but they all seemed super interested in sleeping next to it rather than inside of it. Look up at the top of the photo. See Kathleen? She's even wedged between the bed and some storage boxes. Crazy thing.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: If you can foster kittens this season, please try to do so. By letting the little ones into your home for just a few weeks, you'll provide the shelter they need so they can grow up and be adopted. By fostering, you really are saving a life.
Thanks for another awesome blog hop! And be sure to check out the other entries. Good stuff this week!
