A Cat Portrait In Front Of A Computer

A Cat Portrait In Front Of A Computer

This photo was another snatched moment, like all the best smartphone cat photos are. Not the cat sat on the mat but the cat sat in front of the computer! Thanks Thomas.

Sometimes a snapshot from real life is much more fun than a carefuly staged portrait it is genuine and fun. Thomas has a way to hold his head that melts the cat lover’s heart. You can see that he is sat in front of my Mac and you might notice the clutter of festive Post-It® notes and the stuffed New Zealand native animal the Tuatara.

I was preparing for a student’s literacy lesson and exploring the excellent learning sites at Starfall and ABCMouse.com when ‘someone’ decided he needed attention and sat in front of the computer. Work stopped for a while and cursors were played with.

Bonus Video of Cat Cursor Hunting

Just to prove Thomas is a keen cursor hunter! I posted a short video capture of his antics to Instagram. Because I am able to downoad the short video (Reel) I can share it here.


A Bonus Selfie

This weekend Great Britain is celebrating the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain. Her Majesty has been on the throne of our country for 70 years and this is unprecedented. Of course most British people are very proud.

A four day Bank Holiday was announced and there has been a lot of coverage in the media, parties, beacons and celebrations.

  • The frame was pre-made and I was able to chose a photo and use the Canva Pro background remover so that I only had Jack himself in the frame.

The Dash Kitten Crew were all eager to be involved in the fun so I hunted through my Canva Pro account and discovered this splendid frame based on the flag of Great Britain. Jack was chosen being the one closest to the Queen in cat years wanted to be in today’s post.

Miranda and Silver can be seen on Facebook, and this short video from the BBC from the small island of Orkney far to the North of the British and Scottish mainland is lovely and so genuine.

  2. Thomas looks adorable with the computer, I’m sure he’s a welcome addition to a day of work there! Jack and the others are all looking good in their Jubilee pictures! I enjoyed the video from Orkney … I have some Scottish ancestry and the pipes get to me every time …
