At the Scandinavian Winners Show, Logan had his second set of professional photos taken.
I had absolutely no idea that they would be his last set of professional photos.
I mean, look at him! He doesn’t even look sick in these photos.
This one, he’s talking with that voice of his…I can still hear it.
Hard to believe that only two weeks later, Alfred and I said goodbye to him. He’s so alive in these shots! It’s only slightly ironic that I got them one month to the day that he died.
But the best part is…
…while the photographer was snapping his photos…
…I was taking photos of Logan getting his photo taken!
I think it’s kind of cool to see both sides of the same photo session.
I haven’t tried to match up my photos to the professional’s.
I’m not sure I ever can, but I am so glad to have both sets of photos.
When Logan was at shows, he liked it when the door was open.
He just felt happier when the door was open. Logan, like Jacoby at shows, was perfectly happy to sit in his cage; he just preferred keeping the door open.
When the door to his cage was closed, it really bothered him.
“Ah, yes, that’s much better.”
It’s not that he wanted to escape…
…Yes, Logan, we know you’re showing in the non-alter class, thank you…
…he just wanted to be closer to his humans. That’s all. In fact, Logan decided he was so against the closed-door policy, he worked out how to open the bloody thing! (Click on image to watch video)
…Let’s see that last bit again in slow motion (again, click on the image to see the video)…
Yep. Clearly a criminal mind behind those big round eyes.
I’m working on getting back on finishing my photos and posts about the Scandinavian Winners show, and the other Singapuras we met…but it’s been a little hard. It all reminds me so much of Logan. So here is the page with the names of all the Singas entered in the show. There were five!
And, some reason, it was decided that a more than half-page photo of a ruddy Aby kitten would be an appropriate illustration…
(Really, it’s because Singapuras are, alphabetically, at the end of Group 3 in FIFe and Abyssinians are the first listed in Group 4…but still.)
Well…it has been a depressing couple of weeks around here, hasn’t it? Time for something pointless and silly. I found this a while ago: Apparently, cats with tiny faces is a thing now. Okay, I’m game. Let’s play.
I don’t think it works well with Abyssinians…
Oh, that’s just silly.
Oh, that’s not too bad.
Yeah, just as I suspected. It works better on solid (or mostly solid) coloured cats.
And last but not least, a tiny little Singapura stink-eye. Well, it was kind of fun to do…not sure how impressed I am with the results, though.
Remember what you were doing in February? In February, we had a happy household with five cats.
Now, we only have three. It feels very empty. We will get another Aby soon…it was in the works before we knew Logan was even sick. And we do want to add another Singapura someday. They are so much fun to show!
But that is all in the future. Right now, it’s just too hard to stop looking at the past.
Logan playing with his favourite fishes.
I did a lot of work comparing the body type differences between Abys and Singas, creating the cartoon “characters” of Logan and Alfred.
And also comparing them to the established characters of Angel and Jacoby.
I wanted to make sure that Logan’s profile was Singapura, not Abyssinian.
This one is my favourite, though. Logan’s telling Björn, “No, mamma hasn’t given us any food!”
