I have not featured Jack our ginger boy for some time, and I know you will consider this portrait a ‘roaring cat success’. But, it’s is not what you think.
Can you see what’s missing? When I shared this photograph with my subscribers as a special preview a few spotted it.
Did you see what’s missing? Yes, Jack’s right incisor is gone! He only has one pointy tooth at the front.
Jack had major dental work last year and while it left him feeling a lot better, one of his sharpest teeth had to go. The result for Jack is no more gingivitis, no dental pain and more comfortable access to his food, plus I get the chance to take an epic photo 😉

How I Took Jack’s Photo
Do you notice that I am looking directly across at Jack’s profile? I am at ground level and able to get a good view across to him. I am not looking down, which can seem to diminish your cat’s presence and character. I can hold my camera steady on my knee and this helps because I am zooming in from far away with a telephoto lens.
Jack was quite active so I made sure my shutter speed was high. OK, it’s really high for me, usually, 1/250 or so works but this time I went over the top with 1/2000 but it worked. I captured a cool roaring cat success!
I am pleased it worked. What do you think?
IN MEMORIAM BEAR CAT
