WE ARE SIAMESE IF YOU PLEASE…

To gain the friendship of a cat is a difficult thing. The cat is a philosophical, metholodical, quiet animal, tenacious of it’s own habits, fond of order and cleanliness, and it does not lightly confer its friendship. If you are worthy of its affection, a cat will be your friend, but never your slave. He keeps his free will, though he loves, and he will not do for you what he thinks is unreasonable. But if he once gives himself to you it is with absolute confidence and affection – Theophile Gautier, 1850

I recently did an impromptu mini session with two beautiful Siamese cats, the charming Chiquita ( a chocolate point Siamese ) and her darling Pepito (a lilac point).

Poor little Pepito has a chronic allergy problem and although he was sweet enough to pose for me for some shots he was clearly taking some strain that day, sneezing, eyes watering, he could hardly keep his eyes open, poor boy!  I spent most of the short session photographing Chiquita as I didn’t want to tax him too much, perhaps one day when he is in better form we can try another session and get some lovely images of him too.

Generally, cats don’t like a camera, the beeping and clicking noises are disconcerting and I think they feel the lens is like a huge eye looking at them but Chiquita was such a sweetie, patient and calm, not really fazed at all.

I love this shot of her just about to grab the toy we had dangling above, her little fangs poking out between her lips are adorably cute.

A last image of the lovely lady looking regal and elegant with her brilliant sapphire blue eyes.

All my love

    • Shame Mands, he really suffers with the allergies and he is such a sweet cuddle bunny. Siamese cats always look so aloof and scary but these two are such loving and friendly cats, they both try to fit on my lap at the same time! 🙂
