Sep. 3rd 2019 Cat Found

My girlfriend says I’m a cat magnet! Everywhere I go I find cats! The most recent one was when I went to check on the holiday house by the beach and found this guy strolling in our garden.

I really hope he’s still there. ūüôā

This was at a wedding venue last year. That’s the ceiling.

My nephew found a snail. Told him to put it back; he said he liked how it felt as it crawled on his skin! January this year.

Blurred Vision – Path

Sometimes, technical perfection can go to hell!

I like this one. On my way to the beach at around sunset, I shot this with the phone which was already on b&w mode (my standard).

I didn’t give the phone time to breathe. It’s probably why the photo is blurred a bit. Just wanted to snap a photo and send it to my girlfriend before I lost signal!

This kinda proves my belief that a photo doesn’t have to look all neat and nice for it to mean something to someone.

Waseem Found a Newborn Kitten | Day 20

A Short, Sweet and Magical Post

fuuuusion!!!

This is Kuro and Fluff in mythical beast form, 1.5 the size and a hundred times cuter! They’re owning the rooftop and the hearts of the neighbors (and mine too^^)¬†I mean, how can’t they?

Like you, I watch them grow by the day as Waseem chronicles their cuteness. I’m not there physically to take care of them, but it feels like they’re my own… er, co-own rather. I wouldn’t want Waseem’s neighbors to chase me hahahaha (Some of Waseem’s neighbors expressed their desire to take the kittens as pets once they’re old enough.)

Kuro, Fluff and mommy Stripes brighten our day, and I hope they brighten yours too. Til the next post!

I Found a Newborn Kitten | Day 18-19

Hello everyone! I got a real treat for you today.

Fluff and Kuro are growing up fast! And they’re becoming even more adorable and likeable. I even forgot to take photos and was just watching them play around.¬†Don’t you worry though, we’re all getting out daily fix of cuteness today.

(Some of these photos are processed better than the others. Sorry about that.)

Day 18

They’re getting used to their new home which is now an old refrigerator (more specifically, its freezer!) They go out more now and come back inside only to sleep (they do that a lot though).

I’m truly happy about this for two reasons: the first being technical (I won’t bore you with specific details). It’s just easier to take photos of them while they’re out in the open with more light as opposed to inside (before: the box, now: the freezer) with only a couple of angles available to me (that’s my why my composition has been dull and amateurish so far). Now I can do better. The second reason is… well, also selfish…. I just want to be able to enjoy watching them play around as much as I can!

Day 19

Our cute protagonists inside the “freezer”!

Right outside the “freezer”, In the spirit of comic-cons, Kuro cosplaying as Fluff’s shadow! Before this, he was Fluff’s pillow!

more photos…

And finally…

I hope you enjoyed the extra photos in this post. Look forward to the next one!

I Found a Newborn Kitten | Day 16-17

Hello everyone! Before I get to it I want to tell you that I’m really happy writing this post right now. Yesterday, I thought there will never be another entry in this post series again. (I tried writing the story but I just can’t get it right. So let’s lazily leave it at that and jump to the photos! (only one decent shot of the kittens today))

The box has been moved to a safer place. I only have one angle to take photos from but that’s fine as long as Fluff and Kuro are safe. I couldn’t capture Kuro today.

This is one of the best cat photos I’ve taken so far. All of the photos are mostly for web; this one however is definitely print material! Look how beautiful Stripes is!

I Found a Newborn Kitten | Day 15

Hello everyone!

I didn’t think I’d get the chance to take decent photos of Kuro this quick! I’m glad I did.

Today, Kuro proved that my initial impression of him was wrong. He was really playful and eager to get out of the box which is currently their home. Because of that, I was able to take clearer shots of him.

Kuro was able to steal most of my attention today (about damn time!) but that doesn’t mean I forgot about Fluff!

They really wanted to get out of the box and explore today. They were relentless in trying to climb the box walls (without success, of course). I got them out for a while then put them back in. I really don’t know what’s best for them at this point, keep them in or let them out and then set the box in a way so they can go back inside it on their own. They’re in the rooftop of a building not in the street so that’s good but still. So far, I’m playing it safe keeping them in until they’re older or someone with experience tells me what I should do.

 

I Found a Newborn Kitten | Day ~14

Hello again everyone! It’s been almost ten days since the last post in this series in which I promised to try and write it daily… It looks like I failed!

I did keep checking on the kittens though (missed a couple of days) although didn’t take photos regularly.

Fluff and Kuro are doing great! Fluff’s patterns are becoming more distinguished and detailed and I love it. Kuro being kuro (black) is cool in how black cats are cool! ( yup, that’s a solid argument for me! Black cats are cool. period.) Here’s the thing, I didn’t always think so.

Where I come from, the elders always tell us black cats belong to the Jinn* so naturally I grew up being scared of black cats. Obviously, it’s superstition but the idea was ingrained in me until I grew old enough to know better. Right now, Kuro is helping me completely erase that idea from the back of my head. I just hope I can take better shots of him. I could always pick him up and arrange a shot running the risk of disturbing them and I don’t want that. The moment will come on its own and it will be worth the wait. Photos like that mean much more to me.

Oh here’s another good photo of the mom.
