Meezer Colors Day 2011

AYLA and IZA:  We are postin our BEST pictures first, then adding the runner-ups (TBT did the voting because we were gettin all fussed about choosin, and Marley can be a bit of a prankster).  But we are turning it over to TBT now...

TBT:  First, let me say that Ayla is a modern wedgehead chocolate point meezer.  Iza may be a bluepoint traditional (applehead) meezer, or she may be a Tonkinese of the meezer colors.  I tend toward the Tonkinese idea (heavy muscular body, stubby tail, lighter voice, puppy-like attachment, ears set more sideways on head, less agile), but she does have meezer papers.  If she isn't a true meezer, she is certainly an honorary and related one.

BEST OF BOTH OF THEM TOGETHER:

Getting a picture of both of them looking toward me is nearly impossible!  This is the best I've got.  Their faces really show their colorpoint differences.


BEST OF AYLA:

As close to a glamor shot as I can find today.  She seldom will look directly at the camera.  Its also the closest to Frootbat ears I have of her.  She seems to be staring (mildly) cross-eyed past me.


BEST OF IZA: 

Pure Iza, lying on her back with feet against a wall.  It shows off her warm tummy colors.  Plus face, paws, and tail.


OTHERS OF AYLA:

A typical pose in deep chocolate points, tail wrapped around front paws.  
Since Ayla is normally curled up, this one shows her individual dark points all over.


OTHERS OF IZA:

We have no idea why her tail appears so dark here.  Some trick of lighting...

As you can see her tail matches her generally blue-point colors.



OTHERS OF BOTH:

One of the few to show both their faces close together...
A good one that shows both their tawny flanks; a color area that is often overlooked or shadowed.
HAPPY MEEZER COLORS DAY 2011 TO YOU ALL!
