Dave wondered about the absence of action in my cat photos last week, so this one is dedicated to him:
That is genuine motion blur on the cat. I did not doctor it up in photoshop.
For the record, Silvio did catch the chipmunk he pounced on. Then let it go and caught it again. And again. And again (FUN!). The game finally stopped when Zima showed up and ate it. And then promptly threw it up.
I won't even go in to how Zima chewed one of its legs off before it was dead and I had to get PDM to come out and humanely kill it. Because that part of cat ownership really sucks.
