Tuesday Tails.

You can see that when I walk towards mum, I keep my tail high. You can just see Flynn behind me with his curly tail.
I have a confession. When mum went to take this shot, we were both lying together nomming the grass. It's no secret that I hate the flashy box and If I see it, I either turn my back or walk away. I have just found though that if I walk towards mum, I am usually too close for her to get a shot. Drat! She beat me to it this time. Most of the photos she gets of me she has to use the zoom and hopes I don't notice what she is up too. With Flynn, he just sits there and smiles for the camera. Hmphh! Little poser!

You were not fast enough or she has learned your moves.

Derby said...

That is a good shot of your Eric! you should try to be a bit of a poser too.

The Whiskeratti said...

But Eric, that is such a handsome, majestic picture! Very mancatly.

Sassy Kat said...

You can never let your guard down or they will catch you when you least expect it.
I don't know why your don't like your photo taken, I think both of you two are so handsome.

Tuck said...

I think she tricked you...its a great picture!

Cheyenne -Millie said...

That is such a great photo of you! We thinks your tail is great!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

You have a very happy looking tail! I am with you because I always walk towards the Woman when she has her camera and then she can't get photos!

Fin said...

Nice pict of you - glad mom can use the zoom - you are too handsome to not pose!

Eric, mummy is pretending you're walking over to her for a cuddle... I think her Eric love is getting a tad out of hand...

Tracey and Huffle said...

I have learnt that trick of running toward the flashy beast too! Mum always says bad words then so I know I am winning :)

The Island Cats said...

That straight up tail measn your happy, Eric! Probably because you didn't know your mum was taking that picture!

Furkidsmom said...

We're pretty good at moving as soon as we see the flashy box too. We wait until Mom is ready to take the picture and then we move!

We're lucky your mum got such a good photo of you, because you sure look handsome there! We know how you feel about the flashy box thing, but on the other hand, we like seeing photos of our friends. It's a conundrum. (We had to look that word up. MOL)

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

Kari said...

Gorgeous shot of you, handsome boy.
You look very strong and mancatly.
Hope you'll reconsider the posing business.

CCL Wendy said...

That's a purrfectly poetic shot of the two of you in the long grasses with your tails aloft! Just gorgeous!

Eric and Flynn both made an appearance on the LOLSpot today.

SuziQCat said...

With that tail curled that way, I would think you secretly like having your picture taken Eric :) You look pretty happy to me!

The Furry Kids said...

I don't like the flashy box either. It interrupts my naps!

Love,
Tazo

Cats in trees said...

Does your mom's camera have a string too? We always try to catch that.

Gandalf, Grayson and Whitey said...

Eric, you big phoney! You just are happy to have your Mom's attention!

Whitey always reacts to the noise Mom's camera makes when she turns it on, so he is the most difficult to catch in the act of being kyoot! Mom is able to get better shots of Whitey with her iPhone because it's quiet! Mom's sneaky like that!

Anya said...

Lovely tail shot,
I love the tail language :)

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

You plan backfired this time Eric!
She got a nice pic of you!

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

You walk with purpose, that is so mancatly!

Reese =^..^= said...

That's a very nice picture. You should let her take your picture more often.

Angus Mhor said...

But you're such a handsome fellow, Eric! I'd imagine you be strikin' a pose at every opportunity. Your ginger furs look very good against the green grass.

DEBRA said...

Eric
When Ping is roamin throughout the house he always keep his tail "UP". He uses it like a muscle, when he touches you with it it does not bend. My sisfur Boo always does a curly q with her tail and a wiggle butt. She is all girly girl.
We are glad your Mum got a good picture of you.
