Princess Crazy And The Garden

This is Princess Crazy and therein lies a tale/tail. A feral feline from the wilds of Swope Park she was exported to Kauffman Gardens for remedial personality work. Called "Princess" by those acquainted with her in the Jungle Swope, her lack of affection and anger management skills earned her the name "Crazy" by the staff at Kauffman. All paws and claws at first she settled down a little after her spaying and now allows humans to approach if done with reverence and will even allow small people to pet her. However, the space she occupies is hers and.....note photo above.... she has the body posture to indicate same.
Kauffman is more about blooms than fur beasts although Crazy does her part by keeping the rodent population at bay and, in turn, is fed... probably a little more than desirable... but I think those who had contact with her early on prefer to keep her happy in any way possible.
I was photographing a family on Sunday and took time after the session to pix some blooms.

Above, she never seems to leave the garden and spends the winter days in the tropical building...

All shots taken with the Nikon D5000 and 18-200mm lens. Mostly F5.6 at ASA 200.

So if you go visit and you see her highness... you may call her "Princess" or "Crazy" both are accurate.

A Penny For Your Thoughts

One of my cats, Miss Penny, passed away last week. She was a great pet and very smart. One of the things she loved was "posing." In the past she loved to lay in my neighbor's birdbath...when it was dry of course. I would go over with a camera, gently awaken her, and shoot away. This is from one such series. The shot above was actually the last pose she did that day with a fortuitous yawn.

Meet The Staff

Hyperblogal is not a one-person operation. Others involved in the making of this suspect blogging are, in the rear of top picture, Mr. Daisy (I thought the kitten was a girl), and in the foreground Daisy's mother, Penny. Neither are allowed on the computer table which is where they are pictured. Penny is mostly involved with info gathering whether on fence or laying in her place of hope.... hope that there is at least ONE stupid bird. Mr. Daisy prefers quiet reflection to work and selects either a really bad place to lay... or a warm spot in an open window. Both receive room and board for their efforts.
