Saturday Silliness – Wild Eyed Crazy Cat

Time for some more Saturday Silliness. (: To see the previous silly posts/ images, please click here.


Today my British Shorthair kitty makes another appearance on my blog (shhh, don’t tell my Boxer dog 🙂 ).  If you’d like to see other photos of my kitty (which have been some of the most popular images on my blog), you can click here, here, and here.

For this image, I had my camera in my hand and my cat was facing the sun, so I decided to snap some photos of his head. Luckily enough I caught this one with his tongue. It was the only photo I took that day, but it was enough.

Wild Eyed Crazy Cat…. (:


And I am so honored — the award-winning artist, Carolee Clark, does abstract paintings, and she has used several of my photos as inspiration for her art. Today, she is featuring a painting of this photo, and I am simply thrilled. I love my kitty and I think this painting is wonderful. You can see it here:  “That Was Tasty.” And if you’re interested, she does sell these, so you can have it for yourself.  My kitty would be proud. 🙂

Hope there is some silliness to your Saturday!

  14. Good catch! I love the expression and the tongue.

  15. Katie! What a gorgeous shot you got here of your lovely crazy cat! I love it – AND I loved the painting too 🙂

  16. Great shot, Katie. The detail in the eyes is wonderful and the color really stands out against the black. Having the sunlight on the face really creates a nice lighting for the shot.

  17. I love it! Love it! Love it! 🙂

  18. LOL what a great shot 🙂

  19. Brilliant cat portrait. Nice, sharp eyes and some movement with the licking tongue!

  21. Great photo! Clicked the shutter at just the right instant! I like the painting too. Fwiw, one of your photos inspired one of my paintings too, but it’s not done yet… I was saving mention of that for the blog post when and if I ever get it done. 🙂 You’ve already seen it in progress though…

    • Thanks, Zorgor. It’s my camera that can take fast multiple photos that got me this shot. 🙂 And what image are you using for mine? I don’t remember being told about it before. Thanks!

  22. awesome catch!! I am definitely wowed!

  23. Great capture of your kitty’s tongue. Don’t think I’ve ever seen an animal’s tongue that close up before. LOL.

  27. Look at those eyes! I love your cat, Katie. Excellent shot – a great cat moment. 🙂

  28. pretty and what a lick of the chops!

  29. What an honor to have your photograph chosen by a painter. I was shocked one time when an artist friend wanted to use my photo for inspiration. It was an aerial shot of Japan with Fuji-san at the center. Couldn’t have asked for a better flight path. I hope you get many future requests.

    • Yes, it is an honor. I have had a good number of people wanting to paint my photos. I’m sure more have not asked though. They should ask first, and of course, I would be so honored. 🙂 So glad you had an artist wanting to paint one of your images also. 🙂
