My latest Cat Close Up Challenge is our favourite ginger friend Angus. It was taken with my new camera and I am showing him off on Brian’s Thankful Thursday because I am thankful his picture came out!

Cat Close Up

My Cat Close Up Challenge

I am trying different settings for cat portraits, as my camera has a lot more things to adjust than a point and shoot (although that and my smartphone are go to cameras for fast stuff!)

To my surprise I got close and Angus our ginger snap buddy didn’t move.

It helps that it’s quite chilly outside and he took possession of a cosy fleece blanket!

Cat Close Up

Our challenge isn’t Mission Impossible but took a bit of doing! We are getting better as our cat close up of Chenzou at the cat cafe shows.

Do your cats sit still long enough for pictures?

    It’s lovely to see close ups of your family, but getting good shots isnt easy so we appreciate when anyone does….

    That is one terrific close up. The only way to do these cats around here is when they are asleep. You all have a good day.

    I am a very good model! I like to pose, and my human gets lots of nice closeups of me. Some silly outtake ones too.
