Welcome to Dash Kitten’s Blog
My name is Marjorie Dawson and I love to write about learning my DSLR camera, making smartphone movies and cat technology. I add a dash of cat fun with our weekly Pet Parade blog hop so don’t let the Parade pass you by.
You might also have been directed here from an old post that isn’t there anymore so I hope you find something helpful on this page! Let me introduce the blog and spotlight some of the areas you might like to explore on your first visit.
Dash Kitten is based in New Zealand often known as Middle-Earth thanks to the Lord of the Rings movies. This page is an introduction for new visitors, so please read on for more information about Dash Kitten’s past, present and future.
We are inspired to help by Dash Kitten, our Founder Cat, who was killed in 2013 but whose helping intent and sense of fun still drives the blog today. Dash was a dynamic part of the ‘anipal’ community on Twitter and a major fundraiser for pet causes. Check the Must Read sections below

Exploring Your DSLR Camera
Dash Kitten explores an area not well covered by many photographic blogs: the absolute newbie finding their way. I explore these scary cameras from the ground up so you can take cat pictures with confidence, and expand your skills.
Making Smartphone Movies
I love making smartphone movies and you can too. It’s not as hard as you think.
Whether you want to make your own for profit or the pleasure of showing off, I can help. Check my full selection of posts for plenty of help and advice, or start with these:
