Regular readers won't be surprised that I'm turning the "Layout in a box" into a magazine article. To that end I've been taking quite a lot of pictures that you won't be seeing here. Since the whole point of the model is that it fits in a plastic box, I though taking a photo of a cat in said box would make an amusing illustration of the size.
Has anyone actually tried to get a cat to pose ?
No, well don't bother. My cunning plan involved putting a few treats in the bottom of said box, waiting for them to sit up from chomping and taking a picture. What could go wrong ?
Well, how about they hop in from the side nearest me and instead of aligning themselves along the length of the container, the little horrors dived into the goodies giving me a fine view of their back ends. As Barrie Cryer would say "That reminds me, I need to sharpen a pencil." The number of publications requiring photos of cats bums is very small and mainly consists of specialist websites.
Fortunately they are greedy little beggars and eventually I persuaded Splodge to sit up, although as you can see he managed to get his own back by licking his nose as the shutter clicked !
