      I only have one shot of a house cat somewhere (although it lives at the offices at our camera club) but no idea where I stored it. When one looks closely at wild cats however, you realise that they are ‘just cats’!

      My favourite has been around before:

        All good Tobie, I love the first one, and the second one is definitely better seen bigger!
        I’d have to travel a long long way to photograph these cats wild and not in a zoo!

      Yes they totally look sweet and cuddly, until they Maul a Las Vegas Magician. I have often looked at house cats over the years and studying their physical make up, the sharpened claws, the teeth, speed, agility, and strength pound for pound, it’s really not to hard to understand why their larger counter parts are at the top of the food chain. We did have this fellow that lived near us, when I was a Teen, who was British born and had been a Doctor in South Africa, then retired, who had a pet Cheetah named Daisy who purred very loudly when you rubbed her belly, She ended up in a zoo somewhere when he passed on, But definitely made you feel that she was just a big cuddly cat.

        Funny, I will take a walk with lions (although I have never done so due to rumors that they end up in canned hunting situations), but I’ll never pose with a cheetah. They’re just to unpredictable – probably due to a few of their dog-like traits. Every now and again people get attacked by ‘tame’ cheetahs when posing with them for photos, for no particular reason at all. It’s mind boggling that this money making business had not been banned in our country yonks ago. In the mean time the attacks are guaranteed to re-occur from time to time.

        The lions – yea, they’re in a class of their own. Simply magnificent animals in all respects.

        Oh – I’ve found the camera club cat. He loved the heat coming from my car’s roof and he was not going to be moved without some effort:

          Only ever seen them in zoos Tobie but I agree, lions have a palpable presence about them even within a fenced enclosure, that says ‘I am the dominant creature here’. I actually think the females seem more menacing than the males but that may be because the females here in the Adelaide Zoo are enormous creatures, much bigger than the younger males. As awe inspiring as they are to see, they belong in the wild free to roam the natural world.

          I recently saw a post on facebook of a big fat ugly hunter kneeling with his rifle behind a dead lion. What possible satisfaction could anyone get out of such an act? A magnificent beast’s life snuffed out for sport. What are these moronic bastards thinking? How can it even be allowed to happen in today’s world? Now another moronic bastard has relaxed the laws on the importation of elephant tusks into the US. Humans might be at the top of the food chain but they sure as hell don’t deserve to be there.

          Sorry, got a bit revved up there for a minute.

        Majestic Cat Rob … I agree allergies are no fun – My cat Sami is Siberian – they are known for their low Fel-D1 proteins that cause most allergies – never thought we would be able to have a cat as a pet as my husband and I both have allergies – but Sami is extremely low in Fel-D1 and we have not had any allergic reaction to him.

        That was in Kabul about 5 years ago, so it was an Afghan mouse – hard as nails. And I think the Ghurkas fed the cats too much to keep them mean and keen. Not sure how it ended, I think I left them to it!

      Talk about resurrection… I knew you’d set this, but didn’t realise it was quite so long ago.  Our semi strays…  hangout with us, and one or two will be touched, but mostly not.  Thus one was hanging out in the garden.

      Cat

      He (she?) had zero interest in being photographed, and treated me with the contempt I deserved.  Straight out of camera, except for cropping.  Cat-pano… is that a thing?
