My cat Bonk
Lens: 50mm Camera: k-r 
Posted By: malkywinter, 11-12-2019, 05:12 AM

This was taken with my humble K-R. Not a popular camera in my country, it served me well though.
It is now retired, internal battery fault, it couldn't be fixed at a cost that made sense.
Sad days, I have my K-5 now though, I do miss the white body of the K-R.

Bonk is called Bonk because he is clumsy and foolhardy. Bonk!

Bonk doesn't look too pleased with you taking his picture, but it's a good picture anyway.

Great picture! I wish our cat would actually use a cat bed. She'll usually just either lay in the middle of the stairs or in a basket of clean clothes.

Our 16-year-old Velcro got her name because she sticks to everything - never been good at controlling her claws.

Love it!!! Looks like he made some lazy, not fully committed attempt to touch the camera, didn't quite reach, and said "Aahh well. Who cares? Damn fool human!!"

Cats are their own thing aren't they! They are the only animal to choose to be with humans, the rest were tamed!

That's interesting if it's true, I'd never heard that before. I'd always assumed we tamed cats as well. But even if it is true, most of the time they choose to be aloof anyway. lol
