Dickie the Photography Cat

Really, I couldn’t have posed this one better, either. Dickie settled down at the other end of the row of books, in the photography section of all places, right under The Cat in Photography. Is it Tabby Tuesday? Here’s a nice big tabby for you!

Dickie only has one more month with me until he moves back with his mom on October 1. She’s counting the days until she’s in her own place and has him back, but I’ll miss him, and I think Kelly will, too. You’ll probably see him a little more often in the next month for that reason, including a little article about him.

Also in that section of books are my collection of the photo essays by Hans Silvester, Cats in the Sun, Kittens in the Sun, The Mediterranean Cat and more, all of which were incredibly inspiring to me as I journeyed toward what I do today, and other books about feline photography or including a lot of felines that I use for visual reference. Sometimes, it’s just neat to look at pictures for a while.


From health and welfare to rescue and adoption stories, advocacy and art, factual articles and fictional stories, "The Creative Cat" offers both visual and verbal education and entertainment about cats for people who love cats, pets and animals of all species.

  • I sometimes wonder if I’ve kind of trained my cats to pose–after all, when they do something that causes me to get out the camera or sketchbook, they get a heck of a lot of attention and praise. Hmmm…are they training me?!

  • My cats are so used to being photographed and sketched I could hang from the ceiling fan to get a good shot and they wouldn’t pay any attention. That’s good when I want a candid, but when I want them to look at me it’s not! Thanks!

  • Nice capture – and he didn’t even open his eyes to see what you were doing. 🙂
