Photo Of The Week: Intense

Tsunami, The Mighty Hunter At Create With Joy
Quote Of The Week
Some people say man is the most dangerous animal on the planet.
Obviously those people have never met an angry cat.
Lillian Johnson
There are few things as thrilling as watching a kitten hunt during play time.  Their eyes blaze with intensity as they stalk their prey. Their bodies tremble with excitement and anticipation. They pounce with determination and ferocity. Aren’t you glad you’re not a mouse?
A picture is worth a thousand words. For more great photos, visit:

    Oh my….check out the look in his eyes!! That is priceless!

    P.S. I'd comment more often…but every time I try to load your site, the connection times out because of the bandwidth usage. (You have a very intensive, slow-to-load site.)

    Hi Marlene,

    Thanks for the feedback – I'm sorry to hear that you are having trouble with the load time of my site. I am aware that this is an issue and am diligently working in the background to address it. Look for changes to come in the near future – and thanks for being such a faithful reader!

    You are right, I don't think there is anything more focused that a cat on the hunt. I just posted a pic of my cat today too – he's so hard to capture!

    Cute cat. They do get a very intense/obsessive look when "hunting" something. My cat changes personality when she's found a bug to hunt or sees a bird out the window.

  12. Sparkle says:

    So nice to see someone else who adores their cat as much as I do! Everyone was getting tired of my pics of Milo in his basket, Milo beside my computer, Milo sleeping in various spots throughout the house.

    But he's just so darned cute.

    I have two young cats myself and they are so intense when they play together or alone. But the sweetest thing is how they know to be gentle with my son when they are playing with him. My high school art teacher always said that cats were smarter then dogs because you have to earn a cat's respect!
