Meet Sam: The Most Photogenic Cat In the World

I love my cat. I think the camera loves him too.

It started out innocently enough. My cat, Sam, found his way into this old basket that I keep in my workshop. Cats like baskets the same way that they like cardboard boxes. Once they find them and step inside and sit down, they own them. Why call it a Jack in the box when we all know it should really be called a cat in a the box? Really. 
Sam found the basket, tousled a few things around inside to make himself some room, and there he sat. 

Sam always looks great in photos. I think it's because he has that stare. For a long time we joked and said he had a staring problem. Whenever I took a photo of something he seemed to be there, at least somewhere in the background, staring back. 

Taking picture of new guitar. Cat staring back. 

Taking picture of case of popcorn balls. Cat stares back. 

This time I caught him hiding behind a shelf, peeping through the open woodwork. Talk about a peeping tom! 

Are your pets like this?
 What do you think?

Enjoy the rest of your week! 
Love, Laura

  1. You're so lucky! He obviously doesn't mind having his photograph taken. I should see how my kitties like being photographed. One of my favorite cats, Ernie, discovered a basket of nuts in the shell when he was a tiny kitten and he continued to sleep in that bowl, even when he was way too big and there were still nuts in there. I copied a poem, by
    Eleanor Farjeon, (1881 to 1965)

    Cats Sleep Anywhere - Poem by Eleanor Farjeon

    Cats sleep, anywhere,
    Any table, any chair
    Top of piano, window-ledge,
    In the middle, on the edge,
    Open drawer, empty shoe,
    Anybody's lap will do,
    Fitted in a cardboard box,
    In the cupboard, with your frocks-
    Anywhere! They don't care!
    Cats sleep anywhere.
    Eleanor Farjeon

  2. So sweet. Would make a great coffee table book.
