My Birdie Watcher
Niggy is my cat. She is the funniest cat I’ve ever known, and the most loving. She has a beautiful animal soul. It frustrates me that I cannot get a really good picture of her. The other cats photograph well, but Niggy seldom looks like herself on film. Her coloring is Tortie coloring, but still unusual even for a Tortie. Her white eyebrowsers and green and yellow eyes sometimes make her look like an owl or a Maurice Sendak creature. On film she sometimes looks like an older cat, but she’s young. She also hates to be photographed. If she sees me with a camera, she disappears like smoke in the wind. Since taking pictures is one of my “obsessions” and Niggy’s antics are a frequent subject, this is a problem.
