Mr Blue Eyes

I know not everyone who comes to my blog likes cats, but it's Phineas, and I love him.

The other day he was sitting on the sofa looking so darned sweet, and the light was good, so I just started shooting.



Shhhh .... I won't tell Phin about his crooked chin if you don't. It's rubbery too so I like to give it a gentle squeeze every now and then, just because I can. hee hee



He and Luna must have been rough housing shortly before this because he wasn't opening his right eye all the way. He's okay though.




Phin's fur has so many color variations, so I always find him an interesting subject.





I love Phin's foot-long tail . . .



. . . because you never know where it's going next

Sharon, Phineas is a handsome brute. I'd rather look at him ANY day than the original blue eyes, (ol Frankie boy). Take care and thanks so much for sharing. I LOVE cats. Susan

He is just completely wonderful & beautiful with a cute name to boot. I LOVE the last shot of his paws & tail. The first shot goes without saying...just gorgeous! I think Phineas needs to be featured more often. >^..^<
p.s. and Luna too!

I'm more of a "dog person" (I'm allergic to cats), but this is one beautiful cat! Great photos.

Aw, he's adorable! Love him - very handsome indeed!

Phyllis said...

Even though I've always considered myself a "dog" person, cats are gorgeous creatures. And Phin is beeUteeful!

Karin said...

I love cats - but they don't love me - allergies - not too severe, but enough to cause discomfort. Your cat is gorgeous and love the blue eyes!!

Gone Country said...

Nice shots of Phin! I love cats and have eight myself. They all have such different personalities and provide so much enjoyment!
Thanks for sharing!

Barbara Palmisano said...

wonderful!

Country Girl said...

Oh, Sharon ~ he's beautiful. Gorgeous portraits of your handsome little man here. Love this!

Kerri said...

I think I'm in LOVE!
What a handsome fella!

mlkoon said...

Phineas is handsome indeed! You don't have to be a cat lover to appreciate his uniqueness, crooked chin and all! Great photos and thanks for the share.

Mary Lou said...

Your cat is beautiful. Great photos.
I just watched "Nights in Rodanthe" and the colors reminded me of your summer blogs, even though it was NC. Your cat is even the natural colors with the pale blue eyes.

The Vintage Cabin said...

He's gorgeous! If someone doesn't like him then there is something seriously wrong with them.

Funny, I just posted some pics of one of my old cats today. Not as crisp and lovely as yours but hey, he's old so he doesn't like things too 'high def'. ;)

Mary said...

He is a terribly handsome fellow, Sharon, and I think he knows it! :) There are so many wonderful dog photos in blogland, but for some reason, I never see too many cats. And that is a shame, as I love cats. :)

Sea Witch said...

Wow, what fabulous icey blue eyes. To quote Elton John's Nikita...with eyes that look like ice on fire. Sea Witch

candis said...

Oh, he's very handsome! Love that expression in the first photo, and the very last one of the tail is adorable. :D

Ginny said...

clairz said...

You've shown me a whole new way to take photos of cats. I learn something every time I visit your beautiful blog. Lovely, lovely photos.

Judy said...

Gorgeous - both Phin and the photos! Such a gentle feeling to the whole post, I had to stroll through a couple of times!

Pat said...

He is truly a beauty!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Wow, his eyes are intense! So pretty!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Awww! Great job of photographing him.

Som mine dager er said...

Well aren't they beautiful, Phin and Luna. And they look so graceful. I've never had a cat, but perhaps when I move from town to the countryside (I do dream a lot...)

From the pictures below this post, it seems like you have been in Norway. It's just like that over here too. Right now it is snowing outside, but slowly I can feel spring is coming. Helluuuu I like it!!!

beautiful kitties that is for sure. love your pics and yes, the lighting was perfect! jill

Jane said...

He is a lovely blue pointed Tonkinese, anyone who doesn't like cats or any animal for that matter( being allergic is something else) isn't someone I would want to know-love the close up of his feet and I bet he is very vocal as well. Thanks for sharing him:)
