Teh cat is in teh bag

I grew up with cats. My mom loves cats; we had cats long before we got our first dog. I'm sure they did all sorts of cat-things. Despite that, I don't recall any of those childhood cats doing this:

Indy

This is Indy, by the way. He is, um, special.

If he's not sitting in a plastic bag, you can be sure that some time in the future he will be gnawing on it. (I think he favors certain numbered recyclable bags -- #1 and #2, if I remember correctly. I don't think he likes #3 or #7; I'm not sure about #4 through 6.)

My mom is always amazed by the things that Indy does. This can be a good thing...if you're a cat.

(Shot with the Nikon D300 using the 50mm f/1.8 lens; aperture-priority, with aperture set to f/4; camera chose shutter speed of 1/10 second at ISO 1000; center-weighted metered; auto white balance; converted to black-and-white using Lightroom; normal JPG.)

  1. Cats are in our life to baffle us from time to time (as opposed to dogs, who are in life for amusement).

  2. Ha! I don't think I've ever seen a picture of Indy that didn't make me laugh or smile. He's got the most striking eyes, too! We had a solid white cat who had the same fascination with bags, although I don't remember him caring about the number!

    1. i'm attracted to his eyes, too, whether his pupils are big or small. i must try getting a picture of him in the act of gnawing on a bag. it's funny watching him do it because he leans over to a bag in slow motion, then proceeds to munch.
