Puss-Puss on handler’s shoulder

Puss-Puss is a very uncooperative cat. He doesn’t want to have his photo taken. Never. It’s not that he has a bad day here and there. With Puss-Puss, everyday is a bad day when there’s a camera involved. Normally, I make my “Daffy Duck” imitation. They are always surprised and look to see what’s that sound.

No!… Not Puss-Puss. He was “pissed-off”. I tried my couple of toys including a good squeaker toy and even my harmonica. Nothing, zippa, nada.

We have ways to make cats cooperate…

My simplest method is getting them on the person’s shoulder. They will always look around because it’s such a high position and the photo does look good. It gives me enough time to take a few quick photos, so I have pre-plan and position both the person and myself. It’s ambush style…
