Pumpkin Eyes

This seems to be the week for Calpurnia to rediscover the high perch in this tree. For months she hardly used it, but lately it has increased in favor.  I like the casual pose too. Just chillin’ for a bit.

After a good run of non-glowing eyes I had a few pumpkin eye shots today. I can just say it is symbolic of something and get away with it.

If you get too close to avoid the glowbug eyes, the camera strap becomes a valid target for attacks.  Note the cute little itty-bitty teeth visible, detracting somewhat from the fearsome predator image.

I did another bit on the big project, and will probably dash off another later. I’m down to the two basic color genes, Orange and Black, and the rarest pair, Inhibitor and Wideband.

Calla often does this “I’m not looking at what I caught” thing when playing with a toy or just when being wacky.  Sometimes it makes a good shot, other times you end up with a shot of just fuzz and an ear as she pivots out of frame.

    Our “fearsome predator” sometimes gets a little growl-y. It’s just the cutest sound, and inspires absolutely no fear in us. We just laugh and say, “Awwwww…”


  2. Calpurnia looks very festive with the pumpkin eyes. And I know it doesn’t take big teeth to make a predator fearsome. She could kill that camera strap in the blink of an eye – even when she’s looking the other way!

    Oooh, orange and black — not only the ones of most interest to me, but very seasonal!

    There is nothing cuter than when they’re just chillin’, with one “arm” up like that. My tortie does it all the time and it’s adorable.

    Awww, what a cute row of itty bitty little teef! Thank you for pointing them out. Calpurnia must brush regularly to keep her teeth so white.
