I can see I'm gonna have to help out now - Inigo



I know Rumbles is the one running for New Zealand's Next Top Cat Model, but I think he needs a bit of help. Since I've been posing a lot longer than him, I'm going to give him some tips.

Tip 1: Fluff that ruff!
A fluffy ruff will make you look more majestic, and will help accentuate your whiskers. There are very few that can resist squeeing when they see the ruff fluff.

Tip 2: The half turn
The advantage to this pose is that you get the fluffy ruff, but you also get both eyes. Since I have handsome eyes, this is a very good pose for me.

Tip 3: I wonder what they're doing over there
This can be a tricky one. It's a full face, but the eyes are looking to the distance. The power of this shot is that it adds a bit of mystery - the viewer wonders what they're not seeing that I am (I was seeing Rumbles knocking something over in case you wondered *sigh*)

Tip 4: Look wise
When in doubt, pretend you're a lion. Look super wise, fluff the ruff and PURRRRRR.

I've also decided that rather than wait for the draw to win the $40 gift certificate for Nip and Bones, I'm going to make the draw tomorrow (we're not good at waiting for exciting things! tee hee!) 

Rumbles is thinking he might hold another draw starting tomorrow for any new donaters that might want to support him in the contest. So, if anyone wants to donate to help him and the Cat Protection Society, it will be a new chance to win a new prize drawing starting tomorrow! 

We all really appreciate how generous everyone has been to help Rumbles. This isn't just something we're just saying, we honestly thank everyone that has left a sweet comment or donated to our cause.

Oh, yes, there's a lot of SQUEEING going on in our house right now, Inigo! You have the posing down pat and look at those whiskers! We love the curl! And your ruff, well, that's beyond adjectives. Incredible!

Inigo, you should be running instead of Rumbles. You got the manly cat poses down perfect, and you're just so handsome. Sigh. Watch out Rumbles. Inigo gonna steal all your thunder. *stars in eyes*

indigo - you is one handsome mancat too. Those poses were purrrfect for a modeling job. I think you are worthy of front cover position on nay fashion magazine.

Your Daily Cute said...

These are excellent tips, Inigo. Rumbles clearly has a lot to learn, but you are a good teacher, so I know he will get it in no time!

Of these, Pimp's favorite is the "Look wise." He does that like a pro in photos!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

With that great advice from an old (ahem, sorry--"experienced") pro, Rumbles is a shoo-in.
I myself do not exactly understand "squeeing" but I think the Human might have done that while she was looking at your stunning photos.

I think woo've been studying me again!
