Effie’s turtle malaise

Effie’s turtle has a Velcro pocket for stuffing catnip. Effie adores catnip. Effie had her turtle out of her toy basket. I stuffed its pocket with ground catnip. She played ecstatically with the catnip-stuffed turtle for a few minutes. She was so quick that my shutter speed could not keep up. She soon became bored with the turtle, and I managed a shot of her adorable ennui.

  2. That’s the trouble with these speedy cats, you can never capture the cuteness. At least, not if you’re an amateur with a mobile like me. Even videos don’t do them justice.

    • I find it a tough call, Harini: Do I use a 1/2000 shutter speed indoors and let the photo be dark, or get decent lighting and no action? It’s always a tough call indoors with Effie. But we know that with our cats, cute is cute, whatever they do.


  3. What a cute cat with a cute catnip turtle. Have fun with Mr. Turtle Effie.

    It’s as though she’s saying, “Well, what’re you looking at?? Doesn’t everybody have a catnip turtle??”

    We all need a turtle companion, clearly. Though we might not all look so cute in photos with our turtle companion.
