Quick Question: Cat Pic 1 or Cat Pic 2?

Post by eselle28 on Fri Aug 26, 2016 3:52 am

This is one of those silly contests where you write about your pet rescue and the top howevermany rescues get donations. I get invited to submit to enough of these that it's probably good to know which picture to pick. My sense is that the laundry picture is the better of the two in general, but that the tinfoil picture is better for this sort of thing because it shows kitty's face. Both pictures come with stories. (And, no, I don't have better ones. I'm not a great photographer, though I'm good at the writing portion of these things. The best-liked-by-my-friends picture of this particular cat is in the third position, but it's too low quality and I suspect too...odd...for this sort of thing.)

I agree with your assessment. Picture 1 is better, but picture 2 shows the face so probably works better for this sort of thing.

I really want to know the laundry story now. Smile

Thanks, Wondering! I'll go with that one!

As for the story, the Laundry Incident happened a few months into a fairly rocky adoption process, after I learned he had some emotional scars and behavioral problems but before I had a handle on how to deal with them. One day I looked around, and I couldn't find that particular cat. I opened a can of food. Nothing. I ran the faucet, which he normally loves to play with. Still nothing. I looked everywhere in the apartment. I remembered the time I took out the garbage and returned to find him smugly lying on his back in the hallway, so proud he'd snuck out, so I searched there and also the hallways of the building's other floors. How do you even lose ten pounds of shedding everywhere? Eventually I sat down on the floor and said, "Here, kitty kitty kitty," in frustration rather than as anything I expected an answer to. I heard a cheery trill in response, searched the laundry room again, and found him sleeping on top of the towels I'd been too lazy to put away earlier. I had my cat back. Also, apparently he thinks his name is Kitty.
