My Wife, the Cat Photographer

The other day my wife, Rose, decided to give her iPad to her sister since she never uses it anymore. She asked me to remove all of her information but when I started to do that I noticed she had over a hundred photos, many of them were pictures of our cats from 2016.

I wanted to transfer the photos to my desktop computer but I was reminded over and over why I hate Apple. They have a reputation for being easy but I have always found the opposite to be true. I couldn’t access the files by plugging the iPad directly to my computer so I uploaded them to iCloud but when I tried to access them on my web browser I was informed that only an Apple device could view them.

I could go on and on but I eventually got the photos and I want to share some of them with you.

This first one is Frankie doing what Frankie does. It is a bit grainy, probably because of poor lighting.

The next one is Frankie on one of his favorite napping spots; our printer. I have since put a towel over it to make it more comfortable.

This is Floki the day after we adopted him.

Here is Frankie again. This was shortly after we adopted Floki and everyone picked up an eye infection from him. I think it was also the first time Chris went to the vet for a medical issue.

Floki again five weeks after adoption. Notice his brown color is coming in.

My wife works from home a few days a week. In this photo, she is with another person that I don’t know and had to crop her out. It looks like Chris is helping her here.

Here is Frankie and Floki keeping Rose company while she works.

The next photos are of Chris at the vet for an eye infection that he got from Floki. I won’t include those because I already posted them. You can see them here.

Here is another example of how helpful Chris is to Rose. I’m sure she gets a lot more done when Chris is around.

These next two were taken on the same day. The first is my favorite. It is Frankie and Floki enjoying the sunbeam.

Here is Frankie, Chris, and Floki. Naturally, Chris has to be lying on top of someone.

Here is a photo that is grainy but it includes all of our boys.

Finally, here is a photo of Frankie, Floki and Chris on the bed next to what I assume are Christmas presents waiting to be wrapped.

What do you think? Do I need to worry about my job as blog photographer?

Remembering 2016

I read that WordPress is not going to do the traditional Annual Report this year so I guess I will have to improvise and do my own review.

I thought I would first post some of the best photos from the Bad Cat Chris blog starting in January.

It was nice to see Chris and Frankie getting along

Chris is our resident lap cat.

In June I changed jobs and had to say goodbye to the feral cats that I was feeding. I really miss them.20160302_Ferals_3852

After seven years, Chris is still a biter.


Even with the addition of our kitten, Floki, I still think Frankie is our most photogenic cat.

Puck is not too happy at the vet.


One of Frankie’s many escapes in 2016. He knows I can’t catch him under vehicles.


Frankie may be photogenic but Chris knows how to be cute.

Here are some stats for 2016

That is about it for this year. I hope you have enjoyed reading about Bad Cat Chris, Puck, Frankie and Floki. I wish everyone a safe and Happy New Year and a prosperous 2017. I hope to continue to see you then. Also, if you missed it, check out my new photo blog at charleshuss.wordpress.com.
