I'm going to catch you, white demon! by RavenMontoya I'm going to catch you, white demon! by RavenMontoya
Ninja Kitty + Snowflake  = :heart:

Felix loooooves to chase snowflakes! :dummy:
He goes completely nuts when it's snowing and it's a delight to watch - and a total catastrophe to try to take photos of. He bounces and runs around so much and quickly. :XD:

The state of this particular photo was a disaster before editing because of low light and snow. I had just turned the camera on and it was still set on bright sunlight when I got the opportunity to snap this photo of Felix in a hunting pose. The original RAW is quite... well... actually almost completely blue and dark. :XD:
But it turned out okay, I think. Amazing what you can manage to beat out of a RAW file. Giggle

In the end I just had to upload this photo. Because it's so funny! Just look at that face... :lol:

Update 1: Horrible pre-edit version:

Felix chasing snow - original by RavenMontoya

Update 2: Cropped it a bit. That extra snow wasn't making anyone happy anyway. ;P

Wonderful photo!
Nice timing too; if my cats anything to go by this is the 'butt wiggling stage' right before the 'pounce' stage.

I love the expression of slightly deranged concentration that cats have when they do this.  :)  My cat, Lizzie, loves being out in the snow too.

Thanks! :happybounce:
I live out in the country side so my cats are allowed to go out as much as they want all year around. :D
Not all of them like snow, but Felix seems to love it. I've heard a lot of stories about cats hating to go out in snow though. :giggle:

Almost reminds me of a fuzzy pop-cycle. Mostly because of the snow, and the solid form the cat is taking. And the tale. It's stiff and funny looking!~

I use Photoshop CS6 and the latest version of Camera RAW to edit my photos. Is that any help to you? And what kind of photos? :meow:

I'm sort of amazed by the response I've gotten on this photo. I only posted it because I thought it was fun. Not because I thought it was any good. :XD:
Haha, guess I know and understand nothing about what other people like, I suppose... :dizzy: revamp
