I've been told the cat thread in yospos is a cool and good place to post my cat. I hope this is the thread.

Quill is 12 weeks old and I just took her today for her second round of vaccinations. She did really well at the vet and barely noticed anything even happened:



But an hour or so later she started to give me looks like this



and now she's just feeling lovely and holding her favorite toy and resting, and getting lots of affection and comforting pats

Update: She's now purring and stretching in her bed. Not really interested in eating or anything yet but she seems fine.

Last time, for her first shots she was out of it almost the entire next day and didn't eat or drink for nearly 24 hours so this seems an improvement.

Quill update - she's back to normal today.





Since it seems like a lot of you haven't seen her from the other cat threads in PI, here's some gifs

Yo Quill would loooove to be in that. Her main activities are play fighting me and jumping all over the place/stalking me in preparation to fight me again. She especially loves going loving crazy and attacking toys (she never uses her claws on me):



She also likes to spy on me from her cat tree





And sleeping on my clean laundry

But mostly, mostly this cat wants to throw paws.

ah i see you're already like us, we who have by volume 90% of our photos be cat pics

Yeah basically. I'm going to have to be better about deleting videos I don't need because they're going to fill my 256gb micro SD card up.

I'm curious - the markings in the first photo I posted, is this just somehow related to her ribs or are these stripes of some kind? I've seen people here talk about the bengal stripes as being a super dominant genetic pattern.

Organza Quiz posted:

Black cats are actually just black on black tabbies! In the sun you can sometimes see their stripes. Pepper's were more visible when she was a kitten, I used to tell her she wasn't a real black cat and I was gonna take her back to the black cat store to get a proper one.

ETA: Google tells me there are in fact some actual black cats who aren't tabbies, but most of them are secret tabbies.

Oh super interesting. Thanks!

Quill also looks brown in the sun, or rather she gets a brown halo. Is this just an illusion from the light through black hair or are some of these black cats actually dark brown?

Many black cats are actually very dark brown. When she gets old you might see it start to fade towards brown or russet quite noticeably.

Very cool, thanks man.

The thing she jumped onto the bed to play with? It's a cat bed that I got for 30 bucks Canadian or something. I'm happy to buy one and ship it to you if you want. Total cost maybe around 40usd or something. She loves the bed and we take it to different rooms now and then if we want her to have a comfy place to sleep.

So I guess they use ketamine for sedation then? It causes that kind of hypersalivation. I was wondering what they're going to use on Quill.

What age should I even be getting her spayed? 4 months is coming up soon which seems crazy fast.

Hi Marcy!

I'm so sorry about Ash. I actually have been trying to figure out how long it will take before I stop getting super sad pretty much daily thinking about one day having to put my cat down :c is this just new cat dad poo poo and it'll go away? I had this experience with a dog years ago and I guess it left more of a mark on me than I realized. I feel like it's getting better and I can appreciate her without having that in the back of my head.

Speaking of which, Quill loves to lay on a cozy blanket on my desk and pull my hand over so she can bite it just a bit:

She also just got this new toy which is USB rechargeable, she loves it:

Just in case anyone is worried about it, this was a month or so ago when she had some irritation on her lower lip, we switched to a ceramic food bowl and I clean it with soap every single time I feed her and it went away quickly. Don't use plastic bowls I guess!

breakfast for Mister Kitty



I gather that you're an experienced cat person from what other people here are saying about your cat/previous ones but I have to say I had those bowls and my cat developed a pretty painful looking infection/irritation on the bottom lip from the plastic/bacteria/who knows. I looked around and everyone recommended switching to ceramic, so I did that and it went away really quick.

I'd just hate to see another cat have to deal with it!

hello thread

i just bought my wife a new canon EOS 4000D. i dont know anything about cameras. i was wondering if you photographers had any tips or general advice about lenses/settings/functions etc. for taking optimal catte pix for me to post

It's less about the settings and more about the light you're able to get. In general though I'd recommend picking up a fixed focal length 'fast' lens like a 50mm f/1.8 because they're cheap and the large aperture allows you to take photos at lower ISO and faster shutter speeds. You get a bit more subject separation also.

Something like an 85/1.8 would be even better, I don't know what exists in the canon space at what price point. Don't be afraid to look up third party lenses like tamron, sigma, etc. For actually shooting with the camera I'd set it to aperture priority and set it as wide as it can go (lowest number) for your indoor shots. Setting it to auto will probably just already do this since you'll be limited by light anyways.
