I had been told that the training procedure with cats was difficult. It's not. Mine had me trained in two days ~Bill Dana

Cats are gods and must be treated accordingly. You must have been particularly obeisant as usually it takes the normal cat three or four days to properly train their minions.

Love the photo!

Excellent photo and caption.

A kitty like that would have trained me in no time too, although I am a dog person.

This picture reminds me of Natsumi who does levitation and takes pictures of them. You can check her out here (http://yowayowacamera.com/).
Regarding the PI painting, these are the different PIs.

2 in the tables (only one is full, other are halves), 2 in the chairs (the top of the pi is the projection of the distant bar table), 2 in the chair support(inverted), 1 in decimal format, 1 in fraction, 1 in the 'Welcome' board and one inverted PI formed by the fizz of the beer :D

I entirely agree with Mr. Dana. At one time, we had FIVE cats. I'm sure we were breaking some sort of city code. But Hey! They found US. Anyway, we were very well trained and to EACH of their very special and unique needs. Now we have one dog and HE is the trained one; trained that is, until he can't reach his ball and then it's up to us to take care of business. Believe me, life comes to a standstill until he gets his ball back.

Uhhh, yes, tis true!

Zuzana said...

Great image and quote - as a cat owner I can nothing but fully agree with it.;)
You captured the cat beautifully, this is a typical feline pose - thinking, preparing, being ever so curious and never trusting.;)

So cute. Beautifully captured.

A fine kitty shot. I especially like the lattice background which makes a fine setting. The saying about cats is affirmed by anyone who has ever owned a cat! Fine post.

True, it's difficult.
But it's not entirely impossible. ;)
