Mancat Monday

Almost every picture Mom takes of me has my eyes closed like this.  It's because the flash hurts my eyes.  She says she's running out of current pictures of me, so you know what that means!  Run, Minchie, run!


Marigold was one of the three surviving kitties from Rose and the Royals after Mom Rose died on February 10, 2013. Mom ML and the CB (and CWB) banded together to rescue Marigold and her siblings from a shelter. Marigold and Brutus went to live with Mom Laura.  Unfortunately, Marigold developed Wet FIP and was helped to the bridge on June 16, 2013. Mom Laura has many vet bills from the numerous tests, treatments, vet boarding, and euthanasia. You can visit Mom Laura at Heaven Sent.

Please visit the auction set up to help Mom Laura with her huge vet bills HERE.  Auction ends June 28.


  1. You Mom could always take pictures of your tail or back of disrespect!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  2. We know what you mean, Minchie. The mom got a new flashy box and it's a little better at taking pictures without that evil flash. Maybe you should wear some sunglasses?? ;)

  3. I know what you mean. Low photo's means the flashy box will be hanging around for a while. Keep those eyes shut.. Hugs GJ xx

  4. Yep, there is going to be more flashy in your life pal!

  5. Yikes, yes, you'd better hide now!

    If she's using a point and shoot camera in "program" mode, she probably can adjust the intensity of the flash down. Our human does that on her Fuji, to a setting of -2/3. Works well inside.

    Or, she can use a bit of folded up facial tissue (kleenex) over the flash itself--experiment with one or two layers--to help diffuse the bright flash yet still give enough light for a good shot.

  6. Are you running Minchie?/ We kind of like seeing your face even with your eyes closed. So stay still for a minute, please.
    Thanks again for the shout out about the auction. Take care.

  7. My human does her best to take photos of us kitties without having to use the flash, 'cause we get squinty eyes too.

  8. Mum uses the red eye flash, we shut our eyes, the when the picture actually takes, our eyes are open again.

  9. your Mom and my Mom are so much alike it's skerry!! Love, Cody
