We are not amused

The house royalty is not amused. A study in black and white.

-- Badtux the Royalty-owned Penguin


  1. Have I seen this one in color before?

  2. You may have seen this one before, but it was never in color -- I took it in black-and-white to begin with. I think black-and-white photography makes a black cat just pop, it brings out his essential shiny blackness quite well, doncha think?

    As for how I choose what cat picture to put up, I have hundreds of them in iPhoto, and I just pick whatever one appeals to me at a given time. No chronological order or anything. This is just an interesting photo to me, so it doesn't surprise me that I may have put it up before.

  3. I prefer the other royalty:

  4. Whether it's color film or B&W, Fang has to be the most photogenic cat I've ever heard of. I believe you when you say it's always been a B&W pic, but I still feel like I've seen this one in color. I don't know why. Maybe it's his eyes...

  5. Blogtopus, dogs are not royalty. Dogs are servants. "Man's best friend" and all that. Cats, on the other hand, were worshiped as gods by the Egyptians, and they have not forgotten it. It is the human who is the servant of the cat, not the other way around.

  6. BadTux, I agree with your sentiment. I was referring to the royal nature of the welsh corgi - the Queen and all.

    Stephen King called cats the "unprincipled gunslingers of the animal kingdom" or something along those lines.

    Dogs are dogs; they follow, they fetch, they love unconditionally, and they poop on your lawn. Not much more, haha.

  7. Quite well done indeed. Charming kitties, though somewhat supercilious in expression. Aren't they all?
