All of you are putting up great photos of your cats. I can never get even a decent picture of a cat for some reason. Is there a trick?

the trick for cat photos is to get on their level (i.e. on the floor) it creates a much more interesting perspective. also, use as fast a shutter speed as possible--flash helps if you can stand to use it. that and keep snapping. for me at least, for each good cat picture i have 2 or 3 of a blurry cat or a cat's backside! good luck!

I agree with, Liane: take the pic from the cat's level for a different perspective, and take lots of pictures. For this picture of Pixie, even though she was calm and wanting to rest, I took about 20 to find the right perspective and angle (now if this was a film camera, I couldn't have done that . . . too expensive). Pixie is a cat, too, that can't stand the flash. She *always* closes her eyes. So when I photograph her, I usually can't get her eyes open . . .
