Emma Pearl 001

Enlarge please


This little stinker is named Emma Pearl. She's about 8 years old and weighs only about 6 pounds. She was clearly the runt of her litter.  Please enlarge the photo and see if I'm the only one that thinks her eye is the "the eye of sauron."   Every time I see her in sunlight, my wedding ring starts spinning on my finger...

Don't know about eye of sauron, but it's a plenty fascinating image.

Nice photos here! I found you at either altadenahiker or Brenda's Arizona--glad I finally made the visit.

Congrats on your cancer news. I'm trying not to imagine 20 days on that diet!

The Eye of Sauron now turns to Pat Tillet... once of my fav books/movies, definately looks like it.

Mei said...

I like her. Plus you can see the spark of your demise in her eye...

RA said...

Her eye is so much more beautiful than Sauron's! Especially when enlarged the colours are so vivid, they almost move!

Can't stop giggling at your "Every time I see her in sunlight, my wedding ring starts spinning on my finger..."

:D

My cat came from a meat market dumpster, is now 12 and has never weighed more than 6lbs..my third Calico in a row!

John McElveen said...

I am enraptured by the Lines around cats eyes. Great Great Photo Sir!

Thanks for the Big Smile I found while viewing!

That is a pretty cat and I know one when I see one.

'wedding ring spinning on my finger' - THAT is just good writing.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Well---HELLO Miss Emma Pearl!!!! Isn't she just the cutest one!!!!!!

Hope you are having a great weekend.
Betsy

Neil said...

hmmm... you might be onto something! Green instead of fiery red and yellow, but otherwise pretty close. Did Peter Jackson ever have access to your cat?

That is the chicken said...

She is the twin to my cat! Beautiful!

Ms. Anthropy said...

She's a beauty! Ahahahchooooo!

faye said...

What a beautiful portrait and I am not even a cat person...
It is an outstanding capture...
texture and feeling...
Great one Pat. !!

Chuck said...

Really great shot...it is always their eyes that make cats so mysterious.

Ally said...

I love her, I can't believe she's that lightweight for a cat her age. Very pretty eyes. Reminds me of my mom's cat.

Living In Williamsburg Virginia said...

What a great close up of a beautiful cat. You are right about the eye though; watch her carefully.

Darryl and Ruth : )

Copyboy said...

That is just freaky cool.

The Retired One said...

A heart-stoppingly stunning photo!
I love cats and so this is the best of both worlds.

faye said...

Commented earlier on this post.
Then while out to dinner I met
two of Emma Pearl's cousins at
a little redneck BarBeQue joint
called PEARL's ... REALLY...
I will post photos one of these
days.

I live for cats. I've got two of em Montague and Squishy. http://thegreatcanadianmodelbuilderswebpage.blogspot.com/2010/03/ta-154.html Montague is an F3 Chausie. They're an African jungle cat Hybrid.

tapirgal said...

Reptilian comes to mind. I wonder what she's like in a BAD mood? Amazing eye.

soft nonsense said...

Creeeeptastic. But mostly awesome. It almost looks like a mini fish...

Talli Roland said...

What a natural! Obviously the camera loves her.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

If you start seeing orcs and the trees around your house start toppling, I'd grow concerned.

Looking forward to your Movie Dirty Dozen on Monday!

Sarah said...

Woah!! This is crazy! You're so right, the similarity is striking!!

Pat Tillett said...

Warren - I like a lot also. I checked yours out, pretty cool...

Tapirgal - She is a little terror. I think because she is so small, she over compensates

SN - The more I enlarge the eye, the weirder it looks

Talli - She's a cutie!

Alex - I'm already concerned!!!

Sarah - Scary looking!

California Girl said...

my cat, Maggie, weighed only 6lbs too. she was the light of my life and i miss her every day. i am sure emma pearl is adorable regardless of your spinning ring.

Pat Tillett said...

California Girl - I'm sorry you don't have her anymore. I know just how that feels. thanks for the comment!
