And Now, the Most Interesting Cat in the World

“I do not always sleep on luggage. But when I do, I sleep on Samsonite™.”

He’s either saying that or “Dude, really? I totally have bed head and you’re taking a picture of me now? Not cool.” Sorry, Lopsided Cat. It’s a nice portrait anyway.

Nice cat portrait. I love the brown fur contrasting against the light green of the wall in the background. Was this done using all natural light, or did you have a remote flash off to the side (45 degree key light angle)?

I’m guessing natural light, as the shadows cast on the walk in the background seem to coming from window light I’d guess.

Personally, I am a fan of natural light over using a flash. Flash photography can be a pain in the arse sometimes.

I also like that you didn’t overdo the background bokeh. Some people really go nuts throwing the b.g. so out of focus it just becomes too abstract sometimes. I like to still get a sense of the space that the subject is in for a portrait.

Sorry for the technical analysis. I’m a photography/video nerd. All in all though, a great picture of, what did you call him… Lopsided Cat?

Yes, cats love luggage. My cats also love purses, handbags, and grocery bags: in fact, anything they can climb inside. (Or try to. I really wish it had been possible to get a video of one trying to crawl into the center core of the paper-towel roll.) I love the “growing a handle” theory.

Lopsided Cat looks very cuddly.

O Great Scalzi, what an excellent picture of Mighty Lopsided Cat.

While the picture cannot be improved (other than replacing it with one of the Beauteous Ghlaghghee) your text can certainly be:

1. The title is ludicrous. Mighty Lopsided Cat is not the most interesting cat in the world. Quick quiz: who is? [1]
2. Your primary interpretation is ridiculous.
3. Your secondary interpretation is closer to the truth – no, not really. Mighty He is simply expressing disappointment that you actually came back.

It’s time, Blacklisted Scalzi. You know what needs to happen. Now.

[1] – seriously? you think the Executive Committee needs to provide an answer?

Cats and bags…a never ending source of comedic entertainment. Ours will go inside shopping bags full or empty, in addition to luggage. Boxes…don’t even get me started.

My best friend told me that when she packed to return to college, she had to watch out that one or both of her cats didn’t try to stow away and go with “mommy” when she left.

He’s looking for the Portal to Narnia.
Seriously, though, he DOES look like that guy on the Dos Equis commercial. The last time I saw
such a close human-cat resemblance, it was Eddie, named after Eddie Haskell because he had
The Ears.
