It is odd how things go into fashion.  This bed has been shunned by everyone since about 6 months after I got it.  I was even using it mostly to catch stuff I was tossing aside. Then suddenly  Rhea tossed out the stuff I’d thrown into it and started using it.

Lurkertype asked if I was going to make Zazzle pictures of the kittens.  I did try it once before a few months ago but did not finish.  It can’t quite get all the features of  Rhea quite right – there should be grey under the left ear and orange under the right ear above the eye.

Davout is a little easier.

Rhea was finding all sorts of interesting perches to watch me.

…and another….

Kitten Tongue!!!!

    Zazzle has insufficient whisker and ear hair options, obviously. I don’t know if Davout is that smiley/fangy. That’s as close as you’re going to get with pre-set software with Rhea; I couldn’t get my tortie right either. It captures her general flavor, though.

      The tool has pretty limited options when you are a Himmy. Once I put in the big eyes since they fit the best, then I wanted him to look like a tuff guy cat instead of Hello Kitty. There isn’t a huge variety of mouths that look like a real cat might have them.

      And Davout does show *some* teeth if you get him worked up with a feather teaser, which fits with the big eyes looking up.

      Yeah, there’s no hope of ear hair with standard Zazzle. And whiskers are on/off, white/black.

    Great Zazzle pics! Rhea’s is brilliant. I agree with Lurkertype – the one of Davout is cute but it doesn’t even begin to address his whiskers! 🙂

      I was looking for a pointy white pattern on the face. There are a few, but the closest goes through the middle of the eyes and thus is too flat.

      I’m not sure any cartoonist could do Davout’s whiskers – it would look like scribbles in front of the face, I’m afraid.

  4. Mommy had absolutely no luck with me. My nose is hard to capture. We hope that someday some kind soul will figure me out and I will get to use my avatar!
