Couch Potato Tuxedo

Sometimes you see images of a cat and they are lounging like a human in a chair. If you are like me, you think these poses not very cat-like or even real but I captured my own couch potato tuxedo today….

Sometimes, these unlikely poses are real as I discovered when Paul called me to look at who was on the sofa. I peeped over and, trying not to giggle, I just had to grab my smartphone.

This is our tuxedo cat Teddy in one of the poses I used to think cats are put in by their owners for a photo opportunity. But, he did this himself!

Couch Potato Tuxedo

TV Dinner Cat

So, I learned something new about cats. They can lounge on their own like a couch potato, with no help from us and they don’t even need a TV dinner! It is your job, as an alert cat photographer on the lookout for an opportunity, to grab the shot and make everyone smile.

This is such a transformation from early thin Teddy, which is a really nice bonus for us. He still jumps at loud noises though, that will take time for him to recover from (and no we are not looking forward to firework night).

Smartphone Photo Tip

Each new iteration of the smartphone (both Android and iOS) takes ever more thrilling cat photographs in low light. So, never be afraid to snap a shot even if you think the light is gloomy. Your ‘phone will prove you wrong so often. If you are not 100% happy there are countless filter treatments to enhance your image, like free app Snapseed.

If you have time you can adjust your format from rectangular or square (if you are sharing on Instagram) but concentrate on the shot. Remember that you can crop an image later if you need to, but seize the moment. Even a slightly fuzzy capture will look great.
