Caturday Photo Enhancement

AYLA: Well, when we saw in comments that the picture of the possum from yesterday  (the post below this one) was harder ta see than we realized (well WE had seen it direct so we knew what ta look for), we had TBT crop that part of the picture and play with the iPhoto adjustment features.
It really does stand out a lot better after some work.

Those possums really are UGLY things.  Seriously, can even POSSUMS like lookin at other possums?  They have nekkid pink feet like Beins, the "fur" is more like Beins heads goin all thin of "hair", they have useless little round ears like Beins (that cant move around), theres no fur on the face and their backsides are even kinna hairless.  Why, they are almost like, um, like *erk*,  Um, we think mebbe we better not go there...

But fer those of you what never seen one, heres the best we could get TBT (not a possum, no-sir-ee, no way) ta do!

TBT:  Thank you for "not going there", Ayla; but you might discover that treats are a bit scarce today.  Just a coincidence, of course.  AHEM!

Anyway, after I finished the photo adjustments, I noticed a really weird affect.  Those 2 silver lines are a reflection in the double glass deck door of a camera tripod inside the house.  The reflections precisely match the angled leg of a small table out on the deck.  I could never have done that deliberately if I tried for a week!

We thinks possums are scary looking. One of the few things Mommy has no urge to pet. And we are talking about the idiot that pets nonpoisonous snakes.

The possums we have in Australia are cuter than that one. Maybe you should come on over and check ours out.

In sad news - although you three might not see it this way - we found a dead wallaby in our front garden today. We think it might have been hit by a car. Not a pleasant task to dispose of it either. We could have used TBT's help!

Are there animal disposal units in AU?

Mom here: I still remember my middle boy coming back into the house after being asked to take out the trash. He was in the single digits of age. He popped back in the kitchen door and his face was white as a sheet as the saying goes, and his eyes truly round as saucers as the saying also goes. He said "Mom! there's a HUGE rat in the trash can He's this BIG"! holding out his arms. I gritted my teeth and stepped out to look in the now lidless trashcan and there was a dead possum. Now how he got there is anyone's guess! I explained he wasn't a rat but my son was still little impressed!

Many years ago, the head peep was watching the neighborhood possum out the window when she realized that the long, pointy face looked like the characters from the Spy vs. Spy cartoons. Now, every time she sees one, she thinks it needs a little black or white hat.

That fing is toooooo skeery. I am glad I was nowhere near it!! Iza-Lambie, I read your message and I *want* to come lay my head on your silky tum and have treats and cuddling, but you HAVE to promise me that . . .

I was able to see that guy yesterday, but yes, much better today! My human thinks possums are kind of cute... maybe she thinks she is related!

We have lots of possums here in FL and we agree with TBT. They are ugly. But I bet you kitties got a big kick out of it coming up on your deck!

We don't have possums in our country but we think they look kinda cute.

Pretinha said...

Esse gambá é feio mesmo, é igual ao que temos aqui, eles tem dentes poderosos.

Flynn said...

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Mark - last year a wallaby died in the nature reserve across the street from our house and the smell was pretty bad. We reported it to the local council and they sent a chap around to take it away, which was a terrific service. What a job to have! Because the body was on our property this time, we weren't sure whether the council would take it for us or not. My husband, wearing gloves, picked it up by the tail and packaged it in some large garbage bags and put it in our rubbish bin. He thinks that that is probably not what the authorities would want him to do, but it's done now. Garbage collection = tomorrow morning. It's all done by machinery - hydraulic lift on the back of the garbage truck picks up the bin and tips it up so everything falls into the truck, so no one will have to touch the body, and because it's all wrapped up in plastic bags, it won't even be obvious what it is. Problem resolved, preusmably - until next time.

Last month we had a baby possum in our house. Mom's been leaving a window open for Jake to do his roaming. Mom even said he was cute. The baby even used our litter box to do it's business. Mom tried to catch him but decided to wait until the widldlife rescue place was open. But baby possum left before it was necessary.
