Hello all,

This one gets about two baths a year, and when I saw the theme this week, I figured it was about that time. Hope you like it. Good luck to all the entries this week, and thanks for looking.

Best Regards,
Kurt

Kurt... Great idea and interesting catch lights. Hmmm.... I have had my Calico for over 10 years and never gave her a bath

What you need is the shot of the perfunctory shake off the pets like to do when wet Nice expression on the cat.

Cute :-) NIce capture! Was thinking along the same lines with my cat, but 1) She hates baths, 2) She hates having photos taken of her, so the chance of both happening and getting a decent shot is pretty slim!

Love the expression too- have seen that plenty of times!

Best of luck

Thanks John. She's a clean freak, she will actually come over and pester us to clean the junk out of her eyes.

I agree, the appearance of the catch lights is odd, I think mostly caused by how spherical cats' eyes are. I almost cut back on their appearance in post, but decided to leave it as is. The smaller one is from a catch card, while the upper one is the bounce angled off the ceiling. (definately could have been softer).

Best Regards,
Kurt

Chad, I "almost" got the shake captured. Just not quite quick enough with the shutter and it did not look right. Thanks for the comments.

Best Regards,
Kurt

Thanks Andy. This one really doesn't mind getting a bath, the male however has been known to cause extensive bodily harm to both himself and me, during attempts to get him wet. I appreciate the comments.

Best Regards,
Kurt

I'm not too far behind you Jouko. I'm a dog fella myself, but she is a great companion. Thanks for looking.

When I seen the theme, I almost had enough guts to give my cats a bath. Almost. Bravo, and a good job both technically and at capturing the theme; this truly says "wet".

She was a little aggravated in the begining, thinking silly human... WHAT are you doing to me?? After many shots however, she was actually quite content with all of the attention.

Thank you for the kind words, Mary.

Best Regards,
Kurt

Hi Kurt! My favorite thing about your image is the expression on her face. Great idea, and beautifully captured, too!
