I'm still a little shy, you know. by RavenMontoya I'm still a little shy, you know. by RavenMontoya
I finally managed take proper outdoor photos of Lois, my sister's Ragdoll kitten. :dummy:
He is now almost 6 months old and starting to loose his baby teeth (so he likes to bite, bite, biiiiite~ on stuff). ;P
All in all he's a cute and friendly little cuddle troll. If I could, I'd sneak him into my bag and catnap him home. I'm not sure my cats would approve of a little brother though. :lol:

The weather has managed to be lousy every time I've been to see Lois lately so that's why I don't have many photos of him. This particular day was cold as Censored  but I was determined to get photos and it went well, even if Lois is not really used to going out yet. He tried to hide most of the time and I had to work hard both to not freeze to death and to get him to come out from under the porch. (Apparently best hiding place ever.) :lol:

Since I now have a few pics I'm really pleased with I will add Lois to the Cat Maffia rotation for a while. :D

I believe it made her happy, yes. She's only taken photos of him with her not-so-good camera phone. Huge difference. :giggle:
And I know you always regret not having more and better photos of them when they're small because they grow up so very fast. I sure wish I had more (good) kitten photos of my own cats, but I hadn't started taking cat photos seriously back then. :)

Whoops! Ragdolls are my favorite breed of cats. Followed by Maine Coons. Heart

No worries. I heard today that they're thinking about changing the spelling to "Lewis" just because it's confusing with the girly spelling. My sister is getting tired of explaining it's not a female on her Fb... :XD:
I think Ragdolls have such gorgeous colours. Seal ones are my favourites though. :giggle:
But Maine Coones are cool to. Sooo BIG fluffers. :D

I lost my ragdoll years ago, but she was one of the sweetest cats I've ever had. I have a few pics of her in my gallery if you're interested. Her name was Kismette. She was a rescue, and my heart still grieves her ten years later. You never forget the ones you truly love, be they people or pets.

Well you did a great job.  Ragdolls are hard to take photo's of, until they settle down anyway.  They are easiest when they are in their sleep cycle.   Mine is cross eyed.  Makes for funny pics.

Thanks a lot! :happybounce:
I've never taken photos of a pure Ragdoll before so it's all new for me. :meow:
Lois looks rather "slow" (as in "stupid" :lol:) when he's sleepy because his eyes look a bit droopy when he's tired. So I wanted to catch him out and about when he's wide away. Giggle 
It was a bit of a job, but I had fun. And he likes me, which is a plus. I speak "cat" more fluently than my sister and her kids so he is very friendly with me, which is fun too. :giggle:

Aww, but your kitty is cross-eyed? Sounds like instant comedy gold. Show me a picture you think is funny? :D

Yes, I know the feels - this week in our country was snowing and temperature about -4°C (24°F). What a lovely spring ...
Reply
:iconravenmontoya:
RavenMontoya Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Hobbyist Photographer
Thanks! :D

And yes, same here. It's been -3°C during the nights and barely 2-3°C during the day. It's the coldest spring in... I've forgotten how many years, but A LOT of years. It's been all over the news. :XD:
It has one perk though: The spring flowers have lasted weeks longer than usual and they're still gorgeous. At least something that brightens the daily life, even if it feels like the next ice age when you're out in the wind. :giggle:

In fact, I don't mind cold weather, it's just unusual ... 
I heard that every 10 years there's the time of "small ice age" which is probably now, but I'm glad because finally after 6 years in here we had really snowy and very cold winter (last years it was like warm autumn), it was really great to feel the "good old times" again :D

Haha, yeah, I'm dedicated to getting new photos to show here on DA! :hero:
It's a lot of fun! :giggle:

And those eyes really are something. No editing needed or anything, they're just icy blue all by nature. Fantastic. OMG
To me he looks a little anxious here, because it was windy and he's not used to all the noises outside yet. He's basically just started to go out on his own and he's a bit of a scaredy cat, which is kind of cute, but a bit inconvenient if you want photos of him. :XD:

He is around 6 months old so very much still a kitten, but he's growing fast. :aww:
Too fast, I think. I wanted more kitten photos of him when he was really small, but oh well... Too late. :giggle:

they are. Do they have kitten pics of this little guy :?
